    From Canadian DVD Group Season 2 is coming from Alliance April 29/03.
    Good news that they are continuing to release full seasons.

    Great!

    Maybe by then DVDsoon will get me my Season ONE replacement. All my discs were scratched when I got them before Christmas so I sent them back.
    Now I wish I'd just resurfaced them with the DVD Doctor. Too bad the set isn't more widely available.

    Even though I wasn't too impressed with the season 1 release, I'll be picking up this set. "North" is my all-time favorite episode and I can't wait to have it on DVD.

    Also, William and Elyse's Due South News is reporting that Alliance may release a DVD collectors set that is like the VHS set currently available.

    Guess we'll just have to see what happens... [​IMG]

    I hate DVD soon. It should be called DVD Eventually.
    Still don't have my Season 1 set even though Amazon.ca has had it in-stock for some time--and cheaper!!
    I'd try to get them to cancel, but they only give store credit which means I'd be committed to buying something else from them.
    I only recommend them for pre-orders if you order well in advance, and if you can still get a good price while springing for the air mail option.
    Of course if there's something wrong with it and you return it, it's anybody's guess when they'll have the stock to replace it. [​IMG]

    More pertinent to the topic, Amazon.ca now has the ominous January 2010 listed for the expected date for Due South Season 2 which sounds like its release has been rescheduled without a new release date.
    Can anyone else confirm this?

    Get a refund on your credit card from DVDSoon.

    https://www.dvdsoon.com/members/ credit-refund.xml is the link (I've added two spaces to ensure y'all don't end up in my account).

    I've got mine on order at Amazon.ca, which uses surface mail to Oz and is glacial.

    As for release date, nothing new has popped up at http://www.canadiandvdgroup.com or the Due South news page above, so I'll keep 29 April pencilled in my diary for now.

    I got my shipment of the 1st season of Due South. from Playcentric.com in a relatively short time. I havn't watched the entire set yet so might wait on Season 2. I hate the way these discs were packaged.

    I understand why someone would get scratched discs. I put the 3rd disc in a seperate case. I was afraid of scratching a disc just taking it out of the case.

    Excellent; I already pre-ordered mine.

    And as for DS S1, I finally got mine right after I emailed them to cancel it. Unfortunately, 2 discs were loose this time, but were less scratched than round 1 because they seemed to stick together. I'm still going to resurface them just to be on the safe side. Don't want to risk the faint possibility of the metal becoming oxidized down the road.

    More loose Due South discs Grant?!?

    You must be very unlucky - mine came all the way from Canada to the UK and still seemed to be stuck on the spindles with superglue!

    I'm hoping season 2 has a better case! [​IMG]

    Probably going back to R & D to come up with better packagaing [​IMG]

    Or, maybe they'll remaster the episodes so they don't have that weird "filtered look" to them. The first episode seemed to be by far the worst though.

    At least two sites (DVDSoon & Videoflicks.ca) have Aug. 5 as the release date for season 2.

    Here's hoping it does indeed have a release date now. Mine's been on order from North American DVD. Though the website shows it with the old 4/29 release date yet.
