    News about Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

    News about Law & Order: Criminal Intent

    News about Monk (no cover art yet)

    Sorry to be lazy, but I'm off to bed. Click the links and check it out. Strange that Universal is bringing this stuff, but still no signs of the "Lost 8" that were announced late last year for 2003 release (Galactica, Sliders, Quantum Leap, E:FC, Emergency!, Dragnet, Rockford Files, & Magnum P.I.). I wonder what the holdup is? [​IMG]

    Hey, can a mod correct the subject so that "premiere" is spelled correctly all three times? Thanks. I *Said* I was tired! [​IMG]

    These must be "water-testers" to see if full-seasons are warranted.

    How in the heck does this make any sense? Why return to the old Star Trek paradigm given how successful the Fox releases have been?

    I love Monk, but there is no way I'd get it an episode at a time.

    *Edit : Whoops, you beat me to it. Still, $20 is just asking to fail *

    Who is that SVU guy and why is his forehead twice the size of a normal person's? I though *I* had a big forehead.

    His head looks nowhere near that big in Wet Hot American Summer. What a bad picture.

    I heard that L&O Season 1 wasn't such a big seller, so perhaps that may explain Universal's cautious approach to these shows. However, I can say I won't be buying these single episode releases.

    Why bring them out on DVD at all when you can watch them for free on TV.

    A) To watch them at your convenience,

    B) To be able to see them long after they stop playing regularly on TV,

    C) To see them in their original uncut form, instead of having more and more snipped out to squeeze in another commercial,

    and D) For any extras that might be on the disc.


    Gee, just because a song plays on the radio every once in a while, doesn't mean I pass up on buying the album!

    I'm still waiting for Series 2 of Law and Order; there's no way I'm going to spend £10 for one episode of the other series -- a whole season? Sure, but not piecemeal. They should do polls if they want a feel for the demand, but a one-off with no promise of future episodes I think is a poor way to gauge demand.

    I really hope they release subsequent season sets as well. I bought Season 1 the day it was released. A great show, and a decent set. (I was thrilled with image quality, but I was happy to have it!)

    Also, these shows aren't in syndication yet, so this is the only way to see early episodes.

    This just seems to be setting them up to fail. How many people are willing to commit $20 for just one episode when they see Fox shows next to them at $80 for a full season? I mean, I really like this show, but I can't deviate from the full season model that I have enjoyed so much. Especially if this leads into the dreaded "greatest hits" concept.

    I will pick up the Criminal Intent pilot, since I'm completely hooked on the series, but if they don't follow the pilot with a full season set, that'll be it for me.
