Hi Everyone!

Just wanted to chime in here real quick to let you know that we just received final cover art and specs for Fox's 24: The Complete First Season (9/17 - SRP $59.98).

Posted Image

The 6-disc set will include all 24 first season episodes in anamorphic widescreen (this is confirmed with the studio - the press release says full frame and is in error), with audio in English Dolby Surround and subtitles in Spanish and English. Extras feature video of Kiefer Sutherland introducing Season One and teasing Season Two, and an alternate ending to the season's final episode with optional audio commentary.

Have a great weekend!

Great Box art too! Thanks FOX, I may actually see all the episodes now!

The box art looks like total crap (I prefer the R2 DVD box art), but I will be purchasing it come September. Too bad it's not in 5.1 like originally mentioned.

I think the new box art looks excellent, along with the disc art! I'll buy this one.

I could care less about the box art, so long as I get the whole season.

Aaaah, I can't wait. Only thing is that Kiefer mentioned in an interview (The View as I recall) that were three alternate endings (maybe one of them wasn't shot?). I don't recall if this was discussed in the other thread.

Well according to lots of sources, there were three endings (two being alternate endings, the third being shown on television).

24 is my favorite TV series of all time, so you can bet your ass I'm gonna be first in line for this set! A BIG thank you to Fox for this set!

From what I read, the three endings were:
1) The one on TV. 2) Teri isn't shot and is rescued by Jack. 3) Teri is shot but lives through it.
So two endings lead to the same thing (Teri lives). I'm curious as to which extra ending is on the DVD.

Looks sweet. As Matthew said 5.1 would be nice, but anamorphic widescreen is more important. Plus, the price is right! Posted Image

Kudos to Fox for a nice and timely release!Posted Image

Funniest line I have ever read in DVD a review: "'The Simple Life' stars rich, spoiled friends Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie as two rich, spoiled friends who are taken out of their posh Los Angeles lifestyle and deposited in a small town in Arkansas..."

Goodness, that cover art looks like crap.

If the releases are identical, I *DO* care about box art. So I'll be buying the Region 2 version, and playing it on my Malata Posted Image

Does the box art matter that much? I'd rather not pay anything beyond the regular price for just a different cover.

Worst cover art...... ever. Posted Image

But, the quality of the show and (hopefully) the discs make this a must have. I already have it preordered Posted Image

Hey Morgan: You might want to spoiler a bit more of your post.
8 Ball gave it a 9:
Yo, Martin and Will are my boys, you know what I'm saying? They make jokes I understand. The car chase is dope! I give it a 9 but I'm still 8 Ball.

I don't have any TV channels since 1999 (this is as close to heaven as you can get on earth) but some TV material is awesome and I've only seen 3 mins of '24' and cannot wait for the boxset as well. R2's box art is worse plus full screen PAL to NTSC conversion has some line jumping in all filters on Malata so I'll get R1

Yeah, more spoiler tags please.
No big deal because my wife spoiled the end where Teri supposedly (?) dies.
I missed the last episode (doh!) and 7pm episodes due to my doofus friend's brother erased my tape with WWF crap! BTW, my VCR was on the blink at the time hence, had to rely on my doofus friend. I just pre-ordered my copy today! Can't wait.

Bob-N, May I ask what the reasoning is behind asking for Morgan to use more spoiler tags, while you yourself just give away part of the ending as well (without using spoiler tags).

The R2 box art is superior, but this is better than the craptastic Buffy cover artwork. At least someone spent more than an hour Photoshopping it. Fox! X-Files=Good! Rest of TV sets(except MASH&Apes)=Bad! Content is good tho, so as long as you don't stray into "Real Genius" land I will survive. Why not put up something on your website where people can vote for the art they like the best for future sets? Like you did with POTA? Choice 1-Artistic Choice 2-"Look at my Noggin" Choice 3-surreal
