I too hope it emerges one day on DVD.
It once made me laugh so sx, I rolled around on the floor and wet my pants. Not the coolest thing to do in front of your college roommates.
The show wasn't so much a jab at small-town life, as a satire of cheesy small-town TV stations. One episode, interrupted for a news bulletin about a three-alarm blaze, promised "film at 11 pm tomorrow night".

In many respects, though, "Fernwood 2 Night" was a classic. I certainly hope the entire series is made available on DVD sometime. One of the best things to come out of the '70s.

I think there were a lot of elements that made this show so great: all the characters were wonderful, and I like how they were so earnest in the way WWomen went about doing their show in the small town of Fernwood Ohio, the guests who happened along and got their 15 minutes Horny women Tallahassee Florida fame momentarily, the non-PC way Barth and Jerry conversed about pretty much any topic or person, and of course, Happy Kyne and the Merthmakers.
