This page is being prefaced by a simple, earnest statement: the fans of Remember WENN would like a legitimate DVD release of the series and are willing to pay whatever reasonable costs are involved in legitimately producing such a series. We would love it if the series had "extras," like commentary, outtakes, a documentary on the seriesbut the simple fact is that we would accept the series even in "plain vanilla" format if we could just have a legitimate release. Those of us who taped the series have worn the tapes out and/or transferred them to DVDand would still purchase a legitimate release.
But we know there are fans out there who didn't tape it and now regret it. The requests of these fans show up on tape trading sites, on newsgroups, on web forums. The market is therebut they cannot purchase what does not exist. We would very much like it to exist.
And in a market where every television series imaginable is being transferred to DVD, from long-running series like M*A*S*H and The Waltons to one-year, obscure series like Good Morning, World and Fractured Flickers, the absence of Remember WENN in the DVD market is that proverbial bitter pill indeed.
So while I do not condone bootlegging, this page is an attempt to let those folks without carefully hoarded and cared for videotapes know where to find the series until a legitimate source comes on the market. In the now cliché line from Field of Dreams, build it and they will come!
In the meantime:
Several sites offer DVD copies of the series for sale. None of them are legitimate, and no, I cannot recommend the quality of the video or the honesty of the sellers on any of them: "You pays your money and you takes your chances." I have had one warning from someone to avoid an outfit called DVD Planet. But if you search on Google, the sites are out there. Thankfully, the prices have gone down on these sets.
Recently, via the Remember WENN fan Facebook page, a "pay it forward" system was worked out.
Sadly, another site that had much better copies of the episodes had to pull them. We do not know who requested it.
Some kind person has posted most (not all) of the episodes on a well-known video site. [smile] These are linked on my episode guide pages if you understand the clue that guides you to them.
This is just a stopgap. AMC, we're out there. We're willing to pay you for a DVD set. Let us prove it to you.
