    What has been delayed? The reviews or the release of the set?

    The U.K. release was pushed back from today (October 14) until the 28th. No change in the R1 release date as far as I know. Either way we're two weeks from the U.K. street date and only three from the U.S./Canada date, and I haven't seen a single reivew, either. Somebody must have a copy of this thing by now. [​IMG]

    I hope someone reviews the R1 set soon! Babylon 5 is probably my all time favourite sci-fi series.

    The region 2 Babylon 5 box set is only £33.99 inc postage from Play.com.
    A bargain and a must buy for a Babylonie like me.[​IMG]
    The release date for the R2 is 28/10/02, 10/28/02 if you're American
    or 67493.1 if you're Minbari.
    Hopefully the rest of them will be released in the next few months [drooling].

    I sent my first letter to Warner Home Video urging them to release B5 on DVD in the autumn of 1997, shortly after I bought my first DVD player. It has sometimes seemed like they'd never release the series. A part of me still won't believe it until I hold that first season set in my hot little hands. But it's been worth the wait, since they're doing it right, full season sets, in widescreen, remixed in DD 5.1 and with plenty of extras (including those JMS commentary tracks. Too bad he didn't have time to do more.) This certainly beats their original plan back in 1999 to issue the series in 4:3 with no extras and on individual 2-episode discs ala ST:TOS 1999. [​IMG] (I credit Niall Young's on-line widescreen DVD petition, and especially the letters it generated, with scuttling this awful idea, one of the few times I think such a petition had any real effect on a studio decision. Of course, that was back in the days before there was a petition for everything and the studios started pretty much ignoring them entirely.)
    Regards,

    As long as they keep a schedule like the X-Files, I'm happy. Please don't fall into the Simpsons trap.

    I would prefer a set every month. [​IMG] But, I know that is not going to happen. So I would be happy with a set every 3-4 months, instead of every 6 months.

    Hmmm...
    Two weeks out, less than a week from the R2 release, and still nothing? Isn't Warner Bros. sending out review copies? [​IMG]

    People have already started receiving their copies in the U.K. (street date is Monday October 28th) but few comments and no formal reviews have been forthcoming. *sigh*
