    With the release just over a week away, has anyone been able to review this set yet?

    As happened last time, Josh Zyber has posted a review of the Region 2 set at www.dvdfile.com.

    I don't think Fox sends out more than two discs of the set for review.

    They apparently had a change of heart. I received the full six-disc set for review a short while ago, and I'm wading through it now.

    Preliminary note before anyone asks -- no "Previously on..."s, not even on The Gift.

    Disappointing about the lack of "Previously..." on "The Gift."

    I was also disappointed that they didn't include the intro to "Welcome to the Hellmouth" on the S1 set.

    (Question: Are the "Previously on" intros included on the eps when they're run on FX or in syndication?")

    Someone needs to bring up the "previously" issue at the next Fox chat. This is akin to accidentally deleting a scene from a movie, and I'd seriously consider just ordering the region 2 version instead, regardless of the fact that it's in 16:9. At least I'll get the entire episode.

    Some might think this is dumb, but Buffy is my favorite show and the 100th episode capper was a SERIES highpoint for me (especially since I didn't much like most of the last two seasons). I hope Fox is willing to do something about this.

    This is very disturbing. I'm thinking FOX should do something about this. They should have fixed the problem with Season 3's first 2 episodes having the wrong theme song, but oh well. This is even bigger!

    Didn't they do a replacement with the season 6 disc of X-Files? Maybe something similar is in order here...

    The replacement for disc 1 of X-Files season 6 never happened. They did provide a number to call at first for replacement, but later announced that the episode Triangle was found to be "acceptable" by all major parties involved.

    Well, that's a load of baloney.

    No, Chris Carter gave it his stamp of approval. But I doubt Joss Whedon would do the same, he hyped the "something special" for the 100 episode previously beforehand on the Buffy message board.

    oh, I thought it came from FOX execs or something. Joss should be notified of this!

    Thats horrible. Why on earth would they do that?
    The "Previously on Buffy" was amazing before the Gift!

    Count me in as one of those people who is very disappointed that The Gift's previously on... is not included. It was a great prologue to the story.
