    Any reviews of this set, which is out tomorrow?? I was wondering how many commentary episodes there are, and what they're like. And how the episodes look.

    I contacted Future Shop, Best Buy and A &B sound in Winnipeg, Canada and none of them received their copies which they said they would usually have right now.
    I work for a video distributer and we didn't receive any of ours either. And we distribute to a lot of video stores. I wonder if there's a delay in Canada?

    Here's one review, but it's pretty lame:

    I don't even think the guy watched the extras!! Or listened to a commentary.

    Mine shipped from Amazon.com at 7:53 AM (EST) on August 23. So, Amazon (U.S.) has got 'em in stock for certain.

    (7:53:19, to be precise. [​IMG])

    Back of DVD Package .........

    "...gushes with extras."

    Perhaps a slight over-statement? [​IMG]

    i'm suprised how 'under the radar' this set seems to be coming in.
    no reviews anywhere (save for the above one)-no ad banners- very little buzz.
    from the sales # on Amazon it seems to be selling alright (was in the 50's last time i looked compared to Night Gallery which was up around 160-something).

    just seems odd that Warner would take a relatively low profile with this one.

    just noticed there is a shot of Kristen on the back cover- NO Fair! that lil' honey doesn't show up till S3.

    and anyone want to make a guess when we'll get to see that set?
    4 months? 6 months?

    what has been Warners timeline for multiple seasons in the past?

    I'm guessing that Warner will release "Dallas Season 3" and "Season 4" fairly close together. Maybe even the same day, given the "Who Shot J.R.?" plotline is tied in to S.3 and the first 4 eps. of S.4, with the "Who Done It" episode being ep. #58.

    I'm betting that we'll see S.3 and S.4 no matter how good or bad this first Dallas set sells. There's no way they WON'T release the shows dealing with the "Who Shot J.R.?" storyline, which is the most-watched "cliffhanger" in TV history. WHV would be fools to not AT LEAST release this series through Season #4. (IMHO.)

    I'd say we'll see S.3 and S.4 on January 25, 2005. [​IMG] Warner has been releasing "West Wing" sets at the rate of one season every six months.

    I'd totally forgotten that Barbara Eden was in the last season of "Dallas" -- playing "LeeAnn De La Vega".

    That might just be enough reason to want to see Season 14 released. [​IMG]

    Interestingly, Barbara Eden turned 70 years old today (well, technically yesterday). Hard to believe Jeannie is 70. Happy Birthday, Jeannie! [​IMG] ........

    i'm watching both of them as i read that post- tvland reruns.
    they both look so young.
    where does the time go...

    yeah i was familiar with CC's Kristen, but MC was the only one who made an impression on me in the role.
    its probably apropos that shes the one on the S1 & 2 back cover, 'cause shes such a damn tease anyway [​IMG]

    I did see a nice ad for the Dallas set in this month's issue of Premiere, and it's currently #15 at Amazon! I am wondering if shipments were late since mine only shipped from DDD on Friday, and most of my preorders from them in the past several months have arrived the day before release date. Anyway, I can't wait! I haven't seen these first episodes in years!

    Checked with our distributor in Toronto and they said that production problems have delayed the DVD in Canada.

    Anybody find it in Canada?

    Yep, after taking the day off work and racing around town, I finally got an answer at HMV - release date in Canada is the 31st. Sonofagun.

    Definitely. I wish it would just be included as a bonus on one of the season sets. I haven't seen this movie in like 10 years and would love to watch it again. I suspect we may never see it on DVD though. It's probably all dependent on how successful the season sets are, and even then it may not be released until after all the seasons come out. The same goes for the two 1996 and 1998 reunion movies. Ugh...

    Speaking of which, what's the official word (or anyone's personal opinion) on how long it will be between season set releases? The release of this series on DVD could potentially be as frustrating as the Simpsons if we only get 1-2 sets a year. We'll be well into HD-DVD before we're half through Dallas' 13 seasons. Ugh...

    Well I was in A&B Sound just now and the guy said later this afternoon. He doesn't have them in his hands. On the one hand , he may not know for sure(if there is a week delay), but you'd also think he wouldn't risk annoying a customer.

    Mmm, Colleen Camp. When I was a kid, seeing her in Clue made me feel special.
