    Here's the Monk cover:
    [​IMG]


    We now know what the "incredible special features" are for SVU. In addition to the L&O:SVU premiere episode "Payback" (9/20/99), you will also get:
    • The Original Series Premiere of Law & Order: "Everybody's
    Favorite Bagman"
    • Law & Order Featurette
    • Special Victims Unit: "The Beginning"
    • Dan Florek squad room walk-through
    • Cast & crew bios
    • Script guide premiere episode


    We also now know what the "incredible special features" are for CI. In addition to the L&O:CI premiere episode "One" (9/30/01), you will also get:
    • The Original Series Premiere of Law & Order: "Everybody's
    Favorite Bagman"
    • Law & Order Featurette
    • Criminal Intent: "The Beginning"
    • Cast & crew bios
    • Script guide premiere episode


    Do those two supplements list sound pretty close to each other? No accident...except for the Dan Florek walk-through on SVU, they're identical! [​IMG]

    This is such bad news. I have been waiting and waiting for them to announce the second year L&O set.

    So, let's see if I understand this correctly. If we don't buy the individual episodes of these series then Universal will think there is no interest in them and not release anything else. If we do buy them Universal will figure they can release single episodes and/or "best of" sets. So those wanting complete seasons are damned if they do and damned if they don't. Jeeze.

    I'll probably get Monk since I can justify buying what amounts to a movie. But the truth is I will only buy the L&O episodes in season sets. No freakin' way am I paying $14-$20 for single episodes. Since I already have L&O Season 1, I don't need 2 more copies of the pilot episode. For every wonderful thing that transpires with DVD, there's always another bone-headed decision waiting around the corner.[​IMG]

    I just might buy the "Monk" DVD if it's in the $5.88 bin at Wal-Mart. [​IMG]

    But for $20?! [​IMG]

    Monk hasn't made it to the UK...yet. Keep checking the TV listings. It'll probably be on between 2 - 4 A.M on Channel4.(just kiddin')

    I see that the L & O discs are to be full screen. Oh well one more reason not to buy them.

    Or even framed for 16:9? It doesn't seem like a very Dick Wolf-ish thing to do; all three L&O series have always looked very much framed for 4:3.

    Everyone SHOULD buy ALL 3 of these so as to ensure full season boxsets or any further releases at all. They're obviously testing the market. I don't care much for the original L&O or SVU, but I gotta get CI and Monk for sure.

    Both the L&O discs are 4x3 for sure, whether that's OAR or MAR or it's a Duo-AR item like CSI.

    More and more word is leaking out from Universal that all season sets of TV shows are on hold pending a possible resolution to the financial difficulties of their owner, Vivendi. I'm not gonna discuss the details yet, so don't bother to ask.

    Is this the same Vivendi that Apple Computer is rumoured to be looking to buy? That already has huge implications for downloadable music; hopefully it would mean these individual series will continue to get season box sets!

    Apple are only interested in buying the Music subsiduary of Vivendi Universal.

    Vivendi is a huge company with lots of interests, from music, films and computer games to water supplies, mobile and landline telephone service provision, European television stations and pay-per-view and internet provision and e-companies.

    The company is looking to sell of it's American assets (in effect the Universal of Vivendi Universal) either as a single sale or in smaller part sales, and keeping it's European telecoms and television businesses (it is already in the process of selling it's Water companies, ironic as this is how the company started).

    See the following for more information:

    Yeah, well it's still nothing compared to AOL-Time Warner [​IMG]

    I can't see MGM buying... aren't they supposed to be almost up for sale themselves?

    Viacom already owns Paramount, no? Somewhere, Sjut Jhally is spinning in his grave. Oh, wait, he's still alive.
