The series won't be completed until the movies are released. They're part of the series just like the final episodes of Little House on the Prairie that were in a two hour format are. All it was was a format change that followed immediately after season 6. They're not a revival or remake that came years later like the Get Smart movies in the 80s were (Which I don't think many would argue as being considered part of the original run of the show).
I didn't understand the doubt I was reading on here yesterday so soon after we recieved assurances that this release was still in the works. Glad to see the naysayers were proved wrong so quickly since I'm looking forward to this release.
They could just about fit Sierra
into the Emergency! Movies set and remain at 5 DVD's. We're seeing them put 24 hour episodes into a 5 DVD package for Emergency already, including some disc each time with 5 episodes on them. The Emergency movies will be the equivalent of 12 one hour long episodes. Then, Sierra
has 13 one hour long episodes. In addition, Sierra's
finale is a two hour movie that basically equals 2 one hour long episodes.
So, the 6 Emergency movies and Sierra's full run equals approximately 27 hour long episodes. We've seen 5 episodes of Emergency! on disc in these sets before, so they can easily fit 25 hour long episodes in a 5 disc set.
So maybe there's a chance, even if they have to compress some of the Sierra episodes a bit to try to squeeze 6 episodes on two of the disc.
It would make for a good pairing since Sierra
shares many similarities with Emergency and it would give us a full set. At a minimum, I'll be disappointed and be criticial of a movies set that doesn't at least include the crossover episode of Sierra
