    • Actually, reruns just started airing again on one of the Encore movie channels. They released Season 1 on DVD years ago, but unfortunately never put out the rest of the seasons.

      • You are my hero for posting this! I’ve been missing that show so much, particularly a few favorite episodes (the gang goes to a team building retreat and have to cross the lava river, Murphy and Frank think they’re going down on an airplane and imagine their funeral…) I have a new season pass set in my DVR now! Thanks!

  • It’s mildly amusing to see a show called Amazing America being hosted by a secessionist.
