    Any progress on this front?! My grandma would love to pop in a JA DVD on a night when there’s nothing interesting on. It’s one of her favorite shows ever (and that says a lot because she’s been around for quite a while now…).

    I loved this series and was so sad when it was cancelled. I really hope that one day I will again be able to watch the Gray family again!

    What is the problem. They only stand to make money off of a DVD set.

    any news on that?

    Network stupidity is by no means,a new thing. we have
    CBS for that example,who,without any warning or notice,
    canceled “JUDGING AMY” in 2005,and smashed an
    audience,which was still pretty high in numbers and viewers. now,some 8 years after this serious insult,we fans
    of this well made Amy Brenneman TV drama,have been
    inquiring as to when this 1999-2005 series will be released
    on DVD,,and it is still an insult,when most TV shows have
    already been released,but with acception to a few,who have yet to taste that privilage,the wait can be longer then
    it is worth! so fans of the series need to contact 20th Century Fox Television to ask why this TV series has not
    been made availible on DVD-and make a serious petition
    to follow-up on this noteworthy task,before another eight years go by,without any resolve!

    What is the hold up w/ the release of the JA DVDs? I’m 29 yrs. old & a closeted TV junkie & JA is my all time fave! I hate watching it on GMC! They edit soooo much & skip episodes that don’t follow their demo of religious/conservative viewers.

    Please do something!

    Put on DVD!!!!!!!

  8. Avatar October 28th, 2013 at 10:56 pm Michael Says:

    there should be a DVD but there isn’t because Judging Amy Was a co-production between CBS Productions and 20th Century Fox

    they have not been willing to work together to make the DVD happen

    Amy said so herself on a vlog she posted to youTube that seems to be unavailable at the moment

    Can a cable network get the rights to Judging Amy and then produce a 2 hour TV movie special? I bet soooooo many people will watch it, even after all of these years. Amy, can you pitch this idea to some other network?

  10. Avatar September 4th, 2014 at 3:46 am Leane Watt Says:

    From the previous posts it looks like the quest to get Judging Amy onto DVD has failed. I am embarrassed to say that I have all seasons of JA on DVD which I purchased this year from what I thought was a reputable DVD store (don’t we love the internet?). As a huge fan this was my Mothers’ Day present to myself. What I received was not what I was expecting with missing episodes, discs that didn’t work and some episodes complete with American advertising (which as an Aussie, I thought quite funny). If anyone can update me on where this is at – I would really appreciate it as I do like to give dues to those who deserve it. Also happy to pass on information on the dodgy DVD sellers.

  11. Avatar January 20th, 2015 at 4:11 pm Debbie Says:

    For anyone who has Directv–JA is shown every day on the UP Channel. The only thing that bugs me is it’s a Christian channel, so some episodes are omitted and they bleep all the bad words. But, at least I get to see it.

  12. Avatar April 10th, 2015 at 12:39 pm Kathi Says:

    Would to to see a JA reunion or something now after all this time. This has been one of my all time faves.

  13. Avatar July 8th, 2015 at 12:26 pm Charleen Falsone Says:

    Please release JA on DVD already. My favorite show of all time. I watch it on UP (thank goodness I at least have that), but they do not show all episodes and they are not in order. I know there is a demand out there for it. What us the problem?

  14. Avatar August 1st, 2015 at 10:14 am Mike Cookson Says:

    I loved this show and was very disappointed when it was canceled, and like the others have been waiting for it to be released. There appears to be a season #1 release that can be imported from Denmark, but requires a player that works with PAL. It seems weird that it was released for Europe, but not here in the US.

  15. Avatar August 17th, 2015 at 2:08 am Susan Marek Says:

    I wish their was a DVD for JA, I haven’t been able to get a lot of channels, but, one day I was surfing the guide and I found UP Channel, and their was Judging Amy. I just love this show, its my favorite. I don’t get HBO, so I can’t see the new series, but, I wish they would release the JA on DVD. I guess for now, I can watch it on UP Channel, I just discovered it a month ago, at least I have that.

    I too am a fan of Judging Amy. At the moment we are getting re runs here in Sydney Australia.
    Please guys pull your finger out and give permission for the dvd to be released…the fans would appreciate it!

  17. Avatar April 29th, 2016 at 10:32 am Maggie Says:

    Please please release Judging Amy on DVD!

  18. Avatar May 23rd, 2016 at 4:22 pm Karen Says:

    I can’t believe this still hasn’t been released on DVD. Best show ever! I check Amazon on occasion, looking for the complete set, but… nothing. After all these years, can someone at 20th Century Fox please understand that the fans are still waiting?

    I’d buy the series in a heartbeat.

  19. Avatar July 15th, 2018 at 11:22 am Mary Says:

    I can’t believe after all these years the dvds have not been released on Judging Amy. Great Show. This does not seem to be fair to actors and actress as the could be getting royals for there part.

  20. Avatar September 10th, 2018 at 2:45 pm Crystal Dennis Says:

    Judging Amy was blacklisted but now that Les Moonves has resigned the story should be told. Please don’t delete this comment too, instead do the right thing and tell the story. You have the platform and the audience and the other crew members and actors deserve to have the story told, its your story please don’t let us all down. Do the right thing, do what Amy Gray would do.

  21. Avatar November 16th, 2018 at 6:26 pm Regina Says:

    I don’t understand why the people who own the rights to this do not want to make money on it. Every time I check to see if it is out on video yet, I am disappointed to find out it is not. I always find sites like this where other people are looking for the same thing. Usually, money rules. Is there anyone out there reading this who has any influence to help all of the “judging Amy” fans?

  22. Avatar March 6th, 2019 at 1:34 pm Mary D. Arndt Says:

    So disappointed that Judging Amy still not on DVD – one of my all-time favorites and I look all the time. So much wisdom for children and adults. Not just entertaining but helpful to victims -why do some people still want to block any assistance on this? As my favorite Maxine Gray would say, if it’s not fine, it’s not the end – so I will continue to wait for the end! I guess the money interests have their own version of MeToo!

  23. Avatar May 15th, 2019 at 3:53 pm JOE S HILL Says:

    It is now May 2019, and it’s been almost 16 years since CBS canceled “JUDGING AMY”, and now Illegal DVD copies are starting to make their way into Amazon and other legitimate locations, so I ask, what in the world is going on, here? why hasn’t your 1999-2005 series been released on DVD, and who is responsible for this unforgivable mistake? like most of your fans, our love for your TV drama and its cast has not diminished, but our patience is being sorely tested! now, The Walt Disney Company owns 20th Century Fox Film Corporation, the most stupid and dumbest idea ever, and now we’re left wondering if any “JUDGING AMY” DVD will ever see an official release, and this is so not acceptable! I would sure like to know why your fans are being short-changed by this ridiculous hold-up and why CBS and 20th (or Disney) are being total pricks over why they haven’t released the series-this is bordering on anger (not at you, of course) but by, or at whoever is responsible for withholding the release of your show..this is Insane!! sorry for the griping, but you are a talented professional, so whatever political voodoo is going on here, it is driving many of fans totally nuts! please keep us posted.

  24. Avatar November 28th, 2019 at 4:15 am Nova Says:

    November 2019, still no “JUDGING AMY” DVD!! Please release the full show on DVD, fans would buy it. We’re waiting!

  25. Avatar January 9th, 2020 at 7:54 pm Michael Says:

    Now that CBS is One Company with Viacom and Disney owns FOX, maybe this can change things

    The last channel that aired it in america was UPTV and not only did they skip about 20 episodes, they also censored and edited the ones they did show. What UPTV did to it was horrible but then again, they do that to all of their shows.

    or at the very least, Sell it digitally on amazon video, Google Play, iTunes, Vudu, ETC

    or allow amazon to do MOD (Manufactured on demand) DVDs

    The show has some music copyright issues, but just change the music. I watched JA for the story lines, not for some song that played in the background.

    I want this show sitting on my dvd and blu-ray shelf already!

  26. Avatar January 14th, 2020 at 11:15 am Nancy Terry Says:

    I’m still waiting as well. Would love to have the full series on DVD or at the very least be able to stream it.

  27. Avatar February 1st, 2020 at 12:40 am Janet from Australia Says:

    I don’t understand why we can’t get Judging Amy full series on DVD . It’s now 2020 and we are still waiting.!! I love Judging Amy and what to watch it again and again.

  28. Avatar April 25th, 2020 at 1:29 am Jane Doerflinger Says:

    While we’re home with the corona virus and I personally have been home for a couple of surgeries I have been looking on the various formats trying to find judging Amy. So many of my good good good favorites on that show. I love it cause it’s such a smart show. Where can I find it, is it out there yet.??? I binged the Practice.There were parts of that that were so hard to watch.

  29. Avatar July 5th, 2020 at 6:24 am Brandy Sanders Says:

    Why is “Judging Amy” not available to stream or on DVD? Does anyone even read this? I want to to this show from the beginning and can’t find it anywhere. It’s 2020, everything should be available for streaming online!! Help out your fans!

  30. Avatar September 6th, 2020 at 2:29 pm Mary J. Jackson Says:

    I have patiently waited for this show to come out on DVD. I don’t fully understand what the problem is other than some corporate bs and red tape. If they can put Charmed out there after 10 years after the show ended, then JA is well overdue! I don’t want to buy bootlegged copies of this show, please release the DVD. I watch this show all the time on YouTube, because its the only way I can watch it. I’d much rather watch a quality DVD! I’d pay for it gladly. Put them up for sale and watch how fast they fly off your shelves and the money you would make. Its so frustrating when you see lesser shows and newer shows on DVD and yet JA isn’t. I think we need to bug the networks with tweets for a reason why this hasn’t happened yet. I will continue to question this decision!

  31. Avatar January 20th, 2021 at 5:09 am Lorenzo Says:

    I saw where it was Richard T Jones’ birthday a few days ago, and decided to search as to where JA could be streamed or bought….nowhere to be found. UNBELIEVABLE. It’s been just about 16 years since it was canceled! I’ve a sinking feeling that now that the dust has settled, this fantastic show will never see a re-emergence on any platform.

  32. Avatar February 8th, 2021 at 2:06 am Mary Says:

    I’m with the others. Judging Amy was a great series, with serious issues that need to be explored. I can’t even buy season 1. Nor do I have access to any streaming versions. I’m lucky to catch an occasional broadcast on our local TV station. The web is rife with con artists trying to make money out of the situation and catch desperate people, attempting to get DVDs of the series. End this situation and release valid copies of the series. Everyone gains.

  33. Avatar February 15th, 2022 at 10:19 pm Marye Says:

    It’s February 2022 and fans of judging Amy are still looking to purchase the DVDs of the series. I bought a full set years ago, however they were not in order and some episodes were missing.

  34. Avatar March 3rd, 2022 at 7:41 pm Jessica Says:

    My mom is still super bummed that Judging Amy isn’t on any streaming services or available to buy on DVD. She loved this show. I remember thinking it was smart and funny, too. Shame there’s no legit way to rewatch it after all these years!

  35. Avatar June 23rd, 2022 at 8:17 am Becca Dawn Johnson Says:

    Still waiting…. I want to buy this for my 93 year old mother… She does not have that much time left! PLEASE SELL A DVD SET OF ALL JA EPISODES!

  36. Avatar June 14th, 2023 at 10:54 am Janis Wheeler Says:

    Almost every other show from that era is on Roku or some other streaming service, even if Prime or Netflix doesn’t want it. This was a wonderful series with talented actors. I’ve heard the problem is with copyrights for the many songs they used in the series. Excellent choice of songs, by the way. Will it ever be released??

  37. Avatar June 25th, 2023 at 8:10 am Vickie O Says:

    Why is Judging Amy NOT available on DVD. This is ridiculous as almost everything else can be purchased. Even shows were not popular are available. If whoever is holding up the release would finally get smart and release it they would make a fortune.

  38. Avatar July 12th, 2023 at 9:25 pm NJ Says:

    This is so shameful. YEARS later, hundreds of thousands of JA fans are still waiting. The network needs us to make their profits, and crickets when they don’t need us. The only thing they respond to is their bottom line. Isn’t it pathetic that CBS doesn’t actually care about our viewing enjoyment. Wow! What a disgrace.

  39. Avatar November 19th, 2023 at 4:16 pm Sally casillo hamimed Says:

    When will this show be available for American DVD players????? This is not fair!!! All these years and still no progress??? Canada can watch it but we can’t. This is bizarre.
