Already? They just came back a couple weeks ago. I remember there was so much excitement at the beginning of the season because we were going to get 30 episodes of The Office (14 actual episodes), 26 of 30 Rock (15), 24 of Scrubs (12), and we were supposed to get Heroes PLUS 5 episodes of Heroes Origins (we only got 11 episodes total).

The season sets for this year better be cheap!

They count the five hour long episodes (four at the beginning of the year and one for the finale) as two episodes a piece so they so made 19 episodes.

If they follow ABC's lead (as with LOST and Desperate Housewives), they'll fluff them up with a bit of deleted footage and a couple extra extras and charge the regular full price.
