I got it for $10 + change at Wal Mart yesterday, it's much better than the edited one that aired on A&E.

It looks and sounds great, too, anamorphic video and 5.1 audio, that was a nice bonus on a doc that could have easily been a 2.0 surround release, glad they gave us that. Posted Image

Just FYI, the one on A&E was 90 minutes without commercials, the dvd has a running time of 110 minutes. Posted Image

I got the two disc one from BB on Tuesday. Haven't had a chance to watch yet, but I did catch the end of the doc on A&E Saturday afternoon.

Any extras on the disc besides the documentary itself?
Bring "The continuing story of PEYTON PLACE" home on DVD: the one that started it all- from Dallas and Dynasty to Desperate Housewives and Gossip Girl!!! Starting this May, see the legendary saga starring Mia Farrow, Ryan O'Neal, Barbara Parkins, and Oscar-winner Dorothy Malone on DVD thru...

On the single disc one, it's just the documentary. But there is a cool little Superman montage leading to the teaser for Superman Returns at the very beginning.

Scott -- that's the same content contained in BestBuy's exclusive "limited edition" 2-disc package, so I guess it's not Futureshop only... :-) I thought it was worth it, picked it up and enjoyed it.

I bought mine on Tuesday because I had to have it immediately without delay. Here I am on Saturday morning and the dvd is sitting on my dvd player still sealed.
