    At a horror convention last year, John Kassir (voice of The Crypt Keeper) mentioned a release in 2005 but nothing official has been announced yet.

    This show gave me goosebumps when I watched it as I was just a little boy when it first aired on HBO. The show I remember the most is the one where everybody in this town is eating at this restaurant eating the most fabulous steak in town. What they don't know is the steak is coming from a corpse in the freezer. That show freaked me out when I saw it. I would buy it on DVD if it was released.

    I don't think we ever got the show competly uncut in Edmonton, so I'd be curious to check this out, as I'm a huge fan of the comics. Have to priced right though, and HBO box sets tend to be the more expensive ones.

    Great news! Here's to hoping that HBO releases these DVDs faster than they put out Oz[​IMG]

    These are actually being released by Warner Bros, not HBO.

    That's good news by me. They got Friends out pretty fast so hopefully Tales will only take about two years or so to get them all out.

    Even though I saw most of the episodes,in syndication,I'll still buy it.Since season 1 is only six episodes,I'm surprised they never released season 2 with it.If they had released both seasons together,they,probably,wouldn't have included any extras.

    Not to mention the prices should be a hell of a lot better than HBO prices.

    The was concern in the posts at DVDAnswers as to whether Warner was using the original HBO versions or the edited syndicated versions. Any news on this Gord? (And if you already posted this info at TVShowsOnDVD.com I apologize...I hit the HTF Forums first today!)

    I would assume it would be the originals. Otherwise you'd be missing a lot. Since its Warner Bros. releasing this I'm fairly certain we'll get the full, uncut originals.

    It's not out until July 12 so it's probably too early for even a store to have put it out already. [​IMG]

    Looking forward to the release.
