I'm surprised no one has talked about season 9 yet:

Do you think this means SG:Atlantis S2 is imminent?

I'm not sure I even want to bother anymore, now that plans have been discussed for possible Blue-Ray releases.

Excellent news! I thought Browder and Black were great additions to the show and it got a bit of a spark and some new life in s9. I can't wait to grab s9 and look forward to SG:Atlantis' s2 release as well.

S8 is where i stopped collecting.. S9 was up and down and now S10 is kinda shakey so far. I agree that Browder and Black have helped keeping it from being a total loss but it's just not the same without RDA! I think S8 had the perfect ending for the series. I wish they had stopped there. But S9 should be a nice set if you like it supposedly alot of extras/commentary.

Well, just because Blu Ray sets might be coming doesn't mean that MGM is going to stop releasing the future sets on standard DVD's.

Just purchased the Australian R4 set of season nine of stargate AND it is in the old 'fat' packaging. This, I suspect, will be a limited run before the new slimline sets of all seasons come out. Diehards and perfectionists who want their sets to match may want to order the OZ versions before they run out.
At least you'll have right packaging and can put the Region one discs in them. A double puchase, I know, but some people will pay to have their sets match.

OZ = Short (slang) for "Australia"

Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

They also parody The Wizard of Oz (along with Star Trek and Farscape) in the wacky 200th episode guest-starring Richard Dean Anderson, premiering on the Sci-Fi Channel this Friday! Posted Image I'm getting that feel of Deja-Type....like I've written this post somewhere before.....











....it was in that other Stargate topic yesterday! Posted Image

So, Australia is known as the Land of OZ? Take me home, Dorothy.

It's also an HBO series about prisoners: "OZ".

Is there still no word on whether we will be able to acquire the new packaging for our older sets?
Movies I would purchase instantly if they were available in their correct aspect ratio:
Death Trap, Innocent Blood, The Shadow, and Remo Williams

They're still working on it.

This isn't an easy task for Fox; they're still looking at the library of MGM titles they inherited, and working hard to keep the scheduled sets (like Stargate and Addams Family) on track for their releases. Something like this isn't an immediate priority for them, but they assure me they're still working on it. We don't need the replacement sets right when season 9 comes out, do we? Sure, it'd be nice, but they can start the slim packaging thing whenever they want, though a flyer in season 9 would make the most sense.

Hey, I just got an old S8 set as a gift from a friend and it has the short version of Threads on it. Unfortunately I don't have the receipt. Would there be any way to get the new version?

I have no idea if this will still work:

You might want to contact SONY directly. Not sure if FOX is handling this now?

It's great that they're at least considering allowing people to purchase the slim packaging for already purchased sets. Assuming it's reasonably priced, I would jump on the slim packaging immediately. I could use the reclaimed shelf space.
