    My only problem is it is coming out on 11/5. What is it with that date. Their are already 5 or 6 different tv box sets coming out that day. [​IMG]
    Although, I am glad I waited to get the show. When it originally came out from the Highlander store it was over $110 dollars. Now, with discounts it will be around $60. [​IMG]

    It was supposed to come out in September. I just hope that this will kickstart Season 2 actually being released, supposedly 2 and 3 have been at the authoring house since February

    Hey, maybe I'm stupid, but where can I read this announcement? I can't find it at Anchor Bay's site, nor anywhere else I usually find these things. And AB apparently hasn't decided to grace me with a copy, nor I presume Gord since he hasn't posted a news item about it yet.
    All I see is DVDFile's blurb from yesterday, which reads thus: That's nice, but not thorough. Is it EXACTLY the same thing as was previously available online only? Same sound formats (2.0 and 5.1), same box, same everything? Or did they make any changes whatsoever for the retail release? The online set had a "CD-ROM of Season One Scripts: presenting the complete collection of Season One's scripts chronicled in Final Draft form"...is this in the retail set, too? And I don't recall a "collectible booklet" in the online set.
    No e-tailer has it listed yet, as far as I can tell, either. Me wanna know more! [​IMG]

    I'm really enjoying this set, and I love the packaging. Usually I'm a keepcase-only man, but the Highlander case is perfect.
