    I would so love to have this but, wow. It's a little too rich for my blood right now. Amazing series, though. Nothing like it before or since.

    I hope this blu-ray will restore the "My Name Is" song from one of the two season 3 episodes. I hope Paul Reubens saved the negative for that scene.

    I also hope it will have the season 2 opening in the season 4 episodes again.

    If you have it on SD, upscaled to 1080, why would you want it on BD??? Is this something that would warrant an upgrade...I think not!
    That's just MHO!!!

    That's not too unusual for kids shows. They were able to get away with repeats far more often with the older Saturday Morning time slots.

    I loved how DUKES looks, and would love to see all television shows look that great.

    The 1988 Writers Strike famously cut down Season 3 to just two episodes and a christmas special.

    Gary,

    Keep the preorder just for price lock. Something tells me that Amazon made some kind
    of error.

    You can cancel that order a few days before actual release if it actually gets changed.

    I want it, but I might hold off and see if it hits a lightning deal over the holiday. I've waited this long to purchase, I can wait a little longer.
