Set in a fictional high school in Boston, this show was great. I was sad to see many of the original stars leave in the later seasons. However the first season was by far the best. This show centered around the lives of both the students, teachers, parents, and administration. Everyday is something different. A teacher writes that she is going to kill herself on the chalkboard, to a Social Studies teacher who is telling students to wear bras for the good of this country. Lets not forget the nude olympics which Mr. Guber (Vice-Principal) tries but doesn't suceed to stop. Chi McBride (I, Robot) was outstanding as the principal who always knew how to get the superintendant off of his back. I miss this show and hope it comes to DVD soon.

Before David E. Kelley went off the deep end with Boston Legal (and became a superstar, go figure), he created great, great human dramas like Picket Fences, The Practice, and Boston Public. Loved everything about BP, from Chi McBride's hyperethical principal and Nicky Katt's erratically dark history teacher to Fyvush Finkle's Harvey Lipschultz. I even enjoyed the parade of "temp" cast members like Dennis Miller, a white collar criminal on community service to Kathy Baker as Asst. Principal Guber's psycho girlfriend. The stories were funny, warm, and emotionally involving -- it was a perfect way to end the week. Hope to see Season One soon.

I was about 14 years old when this show came on the air, let me tell you I watched every episode until Jessalyn Gilsig left the show. This is one of the best TV programs Fox ever put on the air! This show is about a fictional high scool in Boston, MA. I fell in love with the show and the entire cast. In 2003 (I think) a few of the original cast members left the show, I was very distraught! I stopped watching the show after my favorite actors left, yes I watched the opening credits to see if they would make a guest apperance but only to small or nor avail. The show had lost the best actors and inturn they had lost the chrisma that had brought me to the show in the first place! I think the show would still be on to this very day if the original cast would not have left, at least I know I would still be watching!

FOX SHOULD RELEASE THIS SHOW ON DVD ASAP. I used to be hooked on this show, I couldn't wait for Monday nights to come. It's one of my favorite shows of all time.

This is one of those shows that has an amazing theme: High School in Public. It is not only tells high school stories but teacher stories. It is well balanced where anyone can watch it. It was a minor hit for a number of years but I think the main problem was the cast changes were too much. I understand how some characters need to be written out but there were too many, too quickly. By the end of the series, the cast only featured a few members from the first show. I also thought the students needed to be structured better. Most students were only featured for a few episodes.

Either way, this was a series I have been looking forever to come out on DVD. I got my Freaks and Geeks but why not Boston Public. And I would probably only be interested in the first few seasons but it was still a strong show that I think has a decent cult following.

Does anyone out there understand or know why BOSTON PUBLIC has not been released on on DVD as yet. It's a great show and in light of all the "garbage" that is being released, something is really not right here.

This is a singularly spectacular show, and way too much time is being taken getting all its seasons on DVD. The story lines were always quirky and entertaining and usually delivered thought-provoking, emotional responses in every episode. Always there was something hysterically funny and far-fetched, and the challenge of substantial story-telling with provactive and compelling performances from such a talented and diverse cast is why this show ought to be available on DVD. Not that it was perpetually perfect--it did reach at times and get smarmy, but that is often the case in high school life. It is in that same "rare gem" category as "Thirtysomething"--which also should be released on DVD!! I want it NOW, if not sooner. "SMELL that shoe!!!"

I watched this entire series throughout it's nearly four-five year run and watched it again during the times it was aired in syndication. The acting and the storylines were superb and I honestly can't wait to own it on DVD when/if it ever gets released.

My Purchase Of This Item Was Pirated!
I too purchased the full series on DVD from the same site you got yours from and I am too not satisfied with the set. It was poorly edited , the WE logo appears on the right bottom side of the screen , but what do you expect for $54.99 for the complete set of the whole series ? The only reason I... Read More
