This was pretty much a given as Fox is trying for people to watch this show.

I am all over this!!! As a huge fan of the show, I know that you can easily miss jokes as they come almost one on top of the next. And there seems to be some decent extras. SOLD!
And you believe, at heart, everyone's a killer...

Does anyone know if they will be unedited, or will have the bleeps like how the show aired?

Excellent. Been waiting for a date on this. Definitely a must-buy for me on release date. Hoping that most of the cast participates in the extras since they all seem to love working on the show.

I hope they keep the beeps. It just seems funnier that way.

Having the choice to watch the show with or without beeps would be key. Either way, i'm sold. They'll probably go with the beeps, as they create comedic moments in and of themselves - also, it might be more tasteful.

1.78:1 aspect ratio is good to hear. Anyone know if the episodes will be presented in the correct order in the box set?

Oh, this is awesome news. Thanks for posting. I had a feeling Fox would release prior to the start of Season 2.

It looks like it. The Julia Louis-Dreyfus episodes are put in the right place.

The extras don't list the "live from prison" intros from the New Year's Eve marathon, which means I won't be able to toss all of my home recordings.

I agree that the bleeps are an integral part of the comedy.

Ron Howard produced this show and is Henry Winkler a regular cast member? I think I might buy this show.

Terrific news. Each episode always leaves me wanting more, so I'll probably end up watching the entire set in one sitting.

Does anyone else here think the cover art is terrible? Posted Image I mean, honestly...the casts' legs??? The loyal fans will buy it, but I feel that casual fans, or newbies might be turned off by the bizarre cover art. Or is it just me?

No. He was a guest star in six season one episodes and it looks like he'll be appearing in season two as well according to tvtome. But don't let that deter you Chris. AD is the best tv show in years.

I don't know. I quite liked the cover. It's amusing, and different enough that I could see people picking it up out of curiosity. At least we're not getting another big head picture.

I like the cover as well. It fits so well with the "feel" of the show!

I hope they don't pull this stunt with a My Three Sons release.
