    See it here.
    Martin Blythe was quoted in the article and it also mentioned the ST:TNG boxed set of the first season coming out in spring. The interesting thing it also said was that no other ST series would come out until all 7 seasons of TNG were done. I wonder if that came from Martin?

    At the rate that TNG is rumoured to be released, I am glad they'll leave the others Treks till later, if they do!
    I hate these rumours; I would love to hear from our friend from Paramount about this. I suspect however that everything is still pretty much up in the air until TNG season 1 is out, and Paramount can assess demand for more.

    Interesting, Mr. Blythe is quoted as saying if they had started ST:TOS earlier, they'd have done it differently

    I'd be interested in ST:TOS in season sets. The individual discs I say thee nay

    Hi

    Martin Blythe would be quite right about "royally pissing off" those of us who have bought the 2 episode Star Trek TOS discs especially at the prices Paramount Charges for their discs in Canada. That however is a whole other story.

    Is there a thread or site where I can check release dates of TV shows DVDs? I'm interested in getting complete seasons of CBS's Everybody Loves Raymond. My wife and I have so much fun with this series, although I think that if they relase this show on DVD would be a "best of" a la Friends, not complete seasons.

    Jenaro, don't expect Everybody Loves Raymond any time soon. It seems sitcoms have gotten the worst treatment of anything when it comes to DVD (Best-of or not at all). I haven't seen anything about it in Region 2 territories, so don't expect to be able to import it either ;(
