there's speculation over at televisionwithoutpity.com that, mainly due to 'placeholder' links over at amazon, that Amazing Race might be headed to DVD soon. It's a Paramount title if I remember correctly.

any chance this might be announced at the conference this week?

I'm with you Jason, it's about time TAR came to DVD. Also, it's actually a Buena Vista title.

I'd probably consider buying the first season, don't know that I care enough about the others to buy them.

The show link at tvshowsondvd.com indicates that Seasons 1, 2 and 4 are Paramount, and Season 3 is Buena Vista. Any idea which is correct?

IMDB has Buena Vista Television for all the seasons so it looks like BV.

We have a little movement on the DVD front. From an interview with Amazing Race co-creator Elise Doganieri at TARFlies.com:
Quote:
Is there any movement towards offering DVDs for the show?

There is. I’m hearing it’s going to happen. So keep your fingers crossed. I think it’s positive. It’s up to CBS. They’re very aware that people want it. It’s probably going to happen.

I wouldn't call it a confirmation but it's a good sign.

I don't understand this statement by Elise. Since Buena Vista holds the rights, how is it "up to CBS"?

I'd imagine that CBS would love to have DVDs of TAR out there, as a way of getting more people turned on to the show.

BV being the problem would make a lot more sense to me. After all, TAR doesn't air on ABC.

I only watched the 3rd edition of the Amazing Race and would purchase that. Hopefully this idea works out and we see the DVD's start rolling in.

I love TAR and it's my favourite reality show but I'm not sure how it would work on DVD. Competitive reality shows heavily depend on the suspense factor of who will be eliminated. Seeing it with foreknowledge would ruin it for me.

Well, I haven't seen the first race, and even if I remember the ultimate winner of the others, I don't necessarily recall who went in each episode. It would also be a great series for supplementary material, as it must be one of the most logistically complex shows on the air and you could make good mini-docs on the places and sights they visit.

Part of the appeal of TAR is that it's not just competition, it's a way to play tourist by proxy, and if Touchstone plays that up, it's a potentially very spiffy DVD set.

I don't watch the show and wouldn't pick up the sets, but I hope they are released and are successful, so that we can get more Survivor sets.

Great news from TVShowsOnDVD.com, TAR is heading to DVD, hopefully this year. Thanks Dave for the great news!

And to clear up the BV/CBS confusion, it IS CBS through Paramount. For sure. Why? I dunno, but it's absolutely CBS who is working on the DVDs and that's that. I just made a minor edit to my TSoD news post to reflect that; I hadn't meant to leave out the studio name (oversight on my part; I was distracted at the last minute).

Glad to hear it's CBS/Paramount, they've done a good job with the Survivor sets. Hopefully TAR will sell just as well so we can get the complete series eventually.

My kids love TAR, but they didn't see the first three seasons. So I'll very likely be getting this one.

TVShowsOnDVD.com is reporting a possible release date of June 7, it would be great to get two seasons out on DVD this year if that date pans out and the set sells well.

I've never seen the show before last night, I decided to watch for Rob and Amber...

...and I loved it. It's not as good as Survivor or Apprentice for me, but I still really enjoyed it. I don't know if I'll be getting the DVD sets yet, I need to see a few more episodes.

If that was your first episode, stay with it. It is normally better than both of those shows. I thought that, since it was a 2 hour episode, it was dragged out a bit. Normally, it is so fast paced, you forget to breathe.

Great that the DVD is in the works.
