    Bill Hunt doesn't cite a source, but in the 7/10 update of The Digital Bits he states that apparently both Firefly and Buffy: Season 5 are due out December 9.

    And so the Lord Joss Whedon did appeareth before his High Priest, and thusly declared the Jaegarian prophecy to be so. And it was good. Very Very good

    I only pray that they will be in the correct order, and not the way they were aired.
    Nothing else matters.

    Not as important news as 'Freaks and Geeks', but 'Firefly' will definitely get my dollar as well.

    Oh, nothing like Fox TV shows on DVD. And this was a really good one. Looking forward to it.

    They are in proper order and all 16:9 so far as I know. The way it was meant to be

    Yeah, everything is going to be in correct order and shown the way Joss Whedon intended them to be seen. I'm pretty excited about this set. I found the first of the unaired episodes on the internet a while back and it was very entertaining, made me only more disappointed Fox cancelled it without even showing the final episodes.

    Seems like there's a ton of tv releases coming out this fall that I have to get. I think this and the Freaks and Geeks set are what have me most excited though considering that the chances of shows that didn't make it a full season making it to dvd is practically nil. A big thanks go out to the creators of both series who worked hard to make the shows available.

    Whoohoo!

    I found the 3 unaired eps on the net too. Really poor quality but great writing. Can't wait to see them in 16:9. Praying for 5.1 too.

    Yes, but the three unaired eps have been floating around the net for a few weeks.

    YES!! [​IMG] Count me in!

    I am so glad these are going to be 16:9 on the DVDs. The pan & scanning on these episodes was almost painful to watch.

    It will be nice to see the three unaired eps as well. Can't wait!!

    I was lucky enough to see most of the eps on Fox Digital broadcast in 16:9 widescreen.

    The fact that the pilot episode was shown last really says it all about the treatment of this series.

    On my must-buy list for Christmas, along with the Indiana Jones set.

    The Digital Bits is saying that the episodes are full frame, but I could have sworn they were letterboxed on my 4:3 TV.

    Sounds excellent except for the pan & scam treatment. I hope they are simply mistaken about that.
