    if you go to the tv-dvd section, and submit 35% instead of the default 40%, you can get a bigger display of the shows available. i always display it in the order of newly listed, so i can see what is new.

    the weird thing is that many of the shows that are listed have been on dvd for months. any thoughts ?

    I had forgotten about that Amazon sale link at TSoD. I hit that site every day; it's one of my 'net home tabs, but I haven't looked at that sales list for a while. Thanks for the reminder.

    I think you are misinterpreting the use of New in this case. I never took it to mean new to DVD but just new to the Amazon sales list.

    i see - you mean that amazon never sold that dvd, even though it came out in 2004 ? gosh, i guess i was thinking that all i had to do was go to amazon to see if a tv show had been legally released or not ?

    from what you are saying, that does not seem to be true. is there any one site that lists all the shows that have legal copies ? irregardless if they sell them or not. i am just curious as to what shows have had any sort of releases on them.

    No, that's not what Brad means. What's happening when anyone opens the Amazon Sale link at TVShowsonDVD.com is that it shows dvd sets that have just gone on sale at whatever discount you choose. It's not telling us that Amazon is just now carrying those titles. Amazon carries titles the day they are originally released 99.99% of the time. The only thing "new" in this case is that the title in question just went on sale at Amazon for a discounted price. Not that Amazon just got the dvd in stock for the first time.

    As I understand that list, "recent additions" on that pages just means it's a new sale price. I'm sure Amazon has been selling Happy Days ever since it was released. "Family Guy" volume 5 isn't a new release either, but the 40%-off sale price may be new.

    TV Shows on DVD is the best place to go to find out whether something has been legitimately released in the U.S., but I think you're probably looking at the wrong pages there to get what you want. Use the "Release Schedule" pages for upcoming releases, or "DVD Releases" for a comprehensive list of shows that have already been released.

    ETA: And of course the front page for the latest buzz about what's in the pipeline for the future.

    oh, i get it now.

    new can simply mean a price reduction ?

    i guess i can still use it, but i will think of it as a different tool - LOL.
