Picked up the 5 Star Collection edition of M*A*S*H at ******* today. I was surprised to see it there since the release date is 1/8. ******* also had the tv series on the shelf. Didn't see this stuff at Best Buy or Circuit City. Did ******* jump the gun or did Fox up the release date?

I would assume they broke date since you haven't yet heard of a newer release date. If you wouldn't mind editing the store name out of your posts, that'd be great. We're not supposed to discuss openly here the stores that broke the date.

I think that it shipped quite early to retailers, because I got my copy before Christmas. Spectacular disc BTW-worth the wait.

Chris, tell us more!

I'm more excited about M*A*S*H coming to DVD that just about anything.

Well, the film itself looks better than I've ever seen it, but given that that's only been on VHS that's not saying much. Also first time I've seen it in widescreen, so a big difference. As for supplements, there is some repetition between the segments, and most of them look like they were produced for TV, but all of them seem to fit. Some interesting trivia in the documentaries, and I'm looking forward to listening to the commentary at some point, but all in all a great disc.

That's odd, I saw both M*A*S*H the movie and M*A*S*H the 1st season (TV) at one of my local B&Ms today, too. Didn't realize they were ahead of their time. Won't say where it was.....but its not usually a popular place among posters at this board! Posted Image

And let me add that I was surprised to see the Willie Wonka WS sitting comfortably alongside the PS!

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!
