RE: Air Crash Investigation: New Series Tonight!

And... still no chance to get all the episodes from the start on DVD once? Do they think of a commercial production? I also would like to know the same about the theatre group called Charlie Victor Romeo (CVR) who was live on Broadway last year. Thanks for any info.
