Uggh, they really overprice their classic TV shows (see Quantum Leap, Northern Exposure and Battlestar Galactica).

Actually, yes... this should have gone into the TV section. If a moderator could kindly move it over, it would be much appreciated!

I wonder why Knight Rider 2000 is a bonus on season one of Knight Rider. I like Knight Rider 2000, but I'm not buying season one to get it. I don't like the regular TV show enough to actually buy it on DVD. It was just an OK show.

However, Sliders is a show I'm glad will be on DVD. I do think Universal should drop the release price by 20-30 dollars because it would sell more copies. I think that would be a better way to make sseasons 3-5 being rleased if the first set was priced at a good price for consumers.

I'll buy the first set of Sliders because I love it so much, but the rest of the seasons can burn in TV hell for all I care! Posted Image

Is Knight Rider 2000 the one where they kill off Devon Miles? That was a really terrible show.

I can say right now that my copy of KR2000 on disc 4 will remain unwatched for the rest of my natural life.

Wow, thanks for that info. I loved the first few seasons of Sliders (when it was on Fox IIRC). Definitely worth picking up that set. I hope that the price comes down a little bit though. Unless the extras are just that killer ($90 killer? doubtful).

I was hoping for new stereo mixes for the earlier episodes of Knight Rider. They first started being broadcast in stereo in Season 2 was it?

I'm with Lutter on this one. I loved the first season, maybe the second? But that drivel they labeled as Sliders that ran on Sci-fi? Ick!

Actually, I thought the first year of Sliders on Sci-Fi (4th overall) was something akin to a return to form after the pretty terrible third. The fifth, I can happily ignore, but year four wasn't bad at all.

Sliders seems over-priced at $89.99, but the main thing that raises flags with the announcement is "the collectible package of the year." In my experience, that usually means it either won't fit on my shelf, the discs will be difficult to remove or both. The packaging standards are the way they are for a reason.
