    Yep, The Office Season 2 appears to be set for an April 20th release.

    Sadly, I didn't see the titles that I was most hoping to find in this list. No Michael Palin travel series yet and no confirmation that Blake's 7 is coming to Region 1 through BBC Video/Warner at some point this year. I'd love to know the status on the latter before I break down and pre-order the Region 2 set (due March 1 for the moment).

    Well, I've heard good things about the Office so I might have to try out season 1 and see if I enjoy it.

    Pennies From Heaven will be very tempting. This one slayed me more than anything else from Potter (though I wonder if my opinion would change now that I'm older). It's much more involving than The Singing Detective (I know, I know... everyone and her aunt would disagree), and infinitely better than the Hollywood version (Christopher Walken notwithstanding). A defining moment for me of what good tv is rarely capable of... so very tempting.

    Are we ever gonna get Michael Palin's Ripping Yarns? No DVD and the old VHS copies are out-of-print now as well. Glad to see Summer Wine, though.

    I can't wait for To the Manor Born! It is my favourite BritCom along with "Keeping Up Appearances," which I will be able to complete my DVD collection of on February 3rd!

    Good news on Pennies from Heaven! I have been waiting for this one since seeing The Singing Detective. Hopefully this will be ready for my brother's summer visit -- he was completely blown away by TSD when I showed it to him last summer.

    I was hoping they might include the recent Christmas Special of The Office with the second season DVD. I'm dying to see it.

    Aren't they also releasing a new R1 16x9 version of a Room with a View? I remember seeing something about "the BBC" releasing that new DVD to replace the old image version...

    Great news on To The Manor Born. It's one of my favorites.
    Meanwhile, does anyone know if we will ever get more than the last season of Good Neighbors?
