Wanna Buy 'Brooklyn Bridge'? Let's Try One More Time...
June 24, 2013  | By David Bianculli  | 39 comments
 

Gary David Goldberg and TV Worth Watching shared a love of quality television — including Goldberg’s. His own personal website, for years, has linked to a story on TV Worth Watching by Tom Brinkmoeller, bemoaning the lack of a DVD release for one of Goldberg’s finest series, Brooklyn Bridge.

With the news of Goldberg's death, we here at TV Worth Watching feel it’s time to do more than bemoan — and to be active. So what we pledge to do, in the coming days and weeks, is mount a campaign to persuade some home-video distributor — collaborating with them, if necessary — to get Goldberg’s semi-autobiographical 1991-93 CBS comedy Brooklyn Bridge released on DVD at last.

And the first step is to do the social-media equivalent of collecting signatures, asking what sounds like an old con but actually is a sincere query:

The question is, Would you buy the Brooklyn Bridge?

If you would, tell us so, so we can count you among the eager fans waiting for such a release. And, if you like, tell us why, because what we’ve heard from people who love this show is that memories of it are as fond as they are strong.

The more of you who respond, the better case we can make in trying to make the Brooklyn Bridge DVD a reality, in honor of Gary David Goldberg’s memory, and legacy.

Please, leave your comments below, and we'll keep you posted on our efforts.

I see The Brooklyn Bridge tv series for sale for $20 on sell.com. I want to know if anyone has bought this from this company and can tell me the quality of this dvd set that sells for $20. Sell.com will not reply when I ask them if the dvd set has any artwork or comes in dvd sized boxes with the artwork. Can anyone help with my question. thanks, Brian

I, too, would buy it as soon as it was offered. A great show that deserves to be available for viewing.

I grew up an avenue and a street from Gary. We were the same age. We played basketball at ps205 (He was good, he shone. I, ...sigh, was the guy he shot over and drove past). The series was a clear reminisce. The grocery store, the stoops, the street ball. Let's watch it again!

An already established means of "collecting signatures" is at www.TVShowsonDVD.com. Years ago, "Firefly" fans flocked there to vote for a DVD release of the series, and the fact that it was the #1 requested show on that site got the studio to go ahead with a release.
Explanation of the voting process is at http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/votingfaq.cfm.
I voted for a Brooklyn Bridge release years ago....it has about 600 votes now, but TWW readers can elevate that number in no time.

Thank you so much Maggie in NJ! I am going there as soon as I finish this and register my vote! I guess I will find out when I get there, but can you vote more than once?

Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes! Please count me in. I have been searching desperately all over the internet to find and buy the entire Brooklyn Bridge TV series for a very long time now. Whom do we all need to contact to get it released as a DVD? I will contact them. I will definitely buy the entire series the minute it is released! I LOVED THAT SHOW and I'm not Jewish. I want to own it, not watch it online. Let me know how I can help the cause.

So many touching, poignant moments in Brooklyn Bridge. The Jackie Robinson episode is our favorite.

My first thought when I heard he had passed was: Maybe NOW they will release Brooklyn Bridge on DVD! It almost happened about 5 years ago, then did not. :((
I would definitely buy the DVD, full series or individual seasons. Absolutely one of our top 5 favorite series ever.

My family loved that show. Didn't matter if we aren't Jewish, their lives shared a lot of what ours had as kids. Please get it released. Such a treasure!
