    I'll start by saying that anyone looking for Simpsons info, move along. Sorry. [​IMG]


    But, there are a LOT of cool items in this list...


    First, for Mr. Ronald Epstein (sorry it's next year, guy):

    01/13/04...Lost In Space: Season 1


    Second, my thanks to Matthew Furtek for his HTF post about these:

    09/02/03...Futurama: Vol. 2

    09/09/03...Family Guy: Vol. 2


    Next, thanks to Will_B for his HTF post, even though I don't know if he got one of our e-mails or found it on Amazon himself:

    09/02/03...24: Season 2


    Finally, here are the rest of the Fox box sets for TV shows that appeared on Amazon today (thanks to Joshua Lane for the heads up he sent to Gord!):

    08/19/03...NYPD Blue: Season 2

    08/19/03...Angel: Season 2

    10/07/03...The Shield: Season 2

    10/21/03...Dark Angel: Season 2

    11/04/03...The X-Files: Season 8

    11/11/03...King of the Hill: Season 2

    12/09/03...M*A*S*H: Season 5


    There's no details other than dates, list prices, and a link to Amazon (which is whose info we're using for the dates and prices!). I'm excited about all of these...great stuff.

    Fox has done VERY WELL with getting these set up for quick subsequent releases. There are a few glaring ommissions here, notably Simpsons, Time Tunnel, Malcolm In The Middle, and perhaps another Buffy. I guess its no surprise that Mary Tyler Moore Show is missing, given Fox's statements about lack of sales on S1. Still, I wish it were included.

    But there is no arguing with the goodness here...11 great TV titles, primed and ready to go!

    Kids, thank your Fox... [rant]THANKS, FOX![/rant]

    No sign of a release date for Millennium: Season One either. Still, that is a pretty strong release lineup from Fox Home Video. A few of those sets will definately be on my shopping list.

    I'm sure this isn't necessarily an all-inclusive list.

    For the last 3 years, FOX has released some great DVD's . But I'm waiting to see MillenniuM: The Complete First Season on that list.

    Unfortunately, it looks like Fox hasn't come to their senses and realized that a lot less people are going to be willing to shell out over $100 for the last two seasons of The X-Files. [​IMG]

    Now that it is out in the open....

    I had confirmed with Fox Home Video about
    a month ago that Lost In Space was being
    put together for 2004.

    It was supposed to be out this year, but there
    are still some legal issues that need to be
    cleared up.

    I hope Fox puts out all three seasons. The
    worst that can happen is that the first season
    doesn't sell, thus prompting the studio not to
    release the next two.

    Keeping my fingers crossed!

    Thanks, Ron...any word on Time Tunnel, since Peter mentioned in the chat that those two should be pretty much hand-in-hand?


    For more comments from me on Millennium, see the Millennium thread.

    I will not be making any blind purchases of Fox TV shows unless I see more Mary Tyler Moore Show seasons.

    Thank you Fox, for two seasons of King of the Hill in a single year! Now just throw the next season of Malcolm in the Middle into the mix, and it'll be perfect!

    X-Files was the first, a test market of the full season set format. Therefore they didn't want to commit too many resources on something that was iffy

    I don't think that X-Files if iffy now. Or does Fox still think that it is a risk. IMHO I think that they could have sped up releases recently.

    Not, it's that the resources are being spread between 8-9 shows
