just saw this
over at DVD Times:
| Columbia Tristar have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Dawson's Creek - The Complete Second Season for 16th December 2003 with a retail price of $49.95. This four disc set contains the episodes from season two presented in 1.33:1 Full Screen with English Dolby Surround audio and the following extra features: |
Spanish and Portugese subtitles
Interactive Tour of Capeside
Dawson's Creek Summer Diaries
Brand new music selected by the executive producer
Now, first of all: 22 episodes on 4 discs? 4 DISCS?? Are they mad? Unless they're going the DVD-18 route as Warner did with ER Season 1 this is going to be a mess. And considering how they handled Dawson's Creek Season 1, overcompressing the hell out of the show (at least the Brakfast Club episode) just to fit it on 3 discs, I'm not getting my hopes up as far as DVD-18 is concerned. Hope I'm wrong, though.
And secondly, the line "Brand new music selected by the executive producer" can obviously only mean one thing, namely that they didn't get (or didn't wanna pay for) the music rights and there'll be replacements. While I'm glad that the new music is being selected by the producers, therefore having at least an "official ring" to it, I still find it rather "interesting" (for lack of a better word) that they not only openly admit it, but they actually spin it to make it sound like a cool new feature instead of the annoyance that it really is.
The above link also has the cover art by the way.
