    50 bucks for a whole season? I'm impressed! From Paramount I expected a higher price. Nice one.

    "Yippee"?

    Did you work at Watto's junkyard or something? No grown man should ever utter the phrase "yippee".

    Great news on the Cheers extras though!

    Sounds good! Interesting to see that although Frasier has 2 more episodes, the total running time is only 5 minutes longer...

    I wonder what the running time of half hour programs will be like in another 10-20 years?

    I'll probably pick up Cheers. It used to be one of my all time favs. Hey, I think Kelsey has been playing Frasier for about 19 years... that must be close to a record!

    Wow, I'm pleasantly surprised that they're not going to suffer from Paramount-itis (high prices and no extras). I was a 'maybe' on Cheers, but for the price and specs listed, I think it's well worth a purchase.

    I'll be picking up the Cheers set too. I've actually never watched Frasier though, Kelsey Grammer in real life just creeps me out too much, Playmate wife after Playmate wife, cocaine arrests, etc.

    It's nice to see that the rumored release date turned out to be true. I'll only be picking up Frasier. I can't wait to see what the release schedule is like on this one. IMHO, Frasier turned to crap when Niles married Dr. Mel and Daphne left Donny at the altar... So that takes us through the end of Season 7. [​IMG]

    For $50 each, I'll be getting both. Much better SRP than the "SRP" for the Trek sets. These will be a welcome replacement for Deep Space Nine.

    Tom, you are right, I've seen much better prices on 30 minute format shows, but if you simply take time into account, I think we should see a $100 "SRP" on Trek, rather than $150. I swallowed that premium for TNG, but I won't on DS9 and VGer.

    Frasier fans should check out the recently-released A&E DVD of Benedict Arnold: A Question of Honor, featuring Grammer doing a highly commendable job in the difficult role of George Washington...respectful but not stiff.
