From the wonderful people at TVShowsOnDVD... YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No words...gasping for air.
This is fantastic news!
Cool. I never got to see this when it aired but was definitely interested in it. If reasonably priced I will pick it up but at a minimum I will rent it. Thanks for the news. Greg
I think Boomtown has one of the coolest openings Gord
This news makes me especially happy as I was a big fan of season 1 and have been sitting on the fence on ordering the UK box set. (I think it'd come out to around $80 shipped, though which I can't afford right now... sigh...)
We have a street date! Here's the update from the Digital Bits:
24 episodes over two seasons? I thought the first was 22, which is a standard season, and then 4 on NBC at the beginning of this season. NBC then put it on hiatus, they eventually cancelled it, and then they aired the last 3 on one Friday night around Christmas just to burn them off. So, hopefully, we'll get all 29 (?).
Pat, the first season was 18 episodes long and the second season only had six episodes made before teh show was cancelled. Be Seeing You, David Blackwell
Awesome. I loved this show, although I felt the 2nd season eps were diminished by trying to be more 'straightforward' in structure. I'll pick it up. My only concern, since this is Lion's Gate, is that the special features appear on the discs, and not just the box. (That's right, LG--You've Been Served.)
Boomtown was one of the best shows on tv. These great shows always go unwatched. July 20 is around my birthday and last year I bought some tv shows. Guess what im getting.
There will be special features - I know someone that was working on them. Gord
Yes, I will definately be the first one to pick this up. Unfortunately, the second season eps pale in comparison to the first on account of the adjustments the network made to it--totally abandoning the nonlinear format which made the show so original and entertaining in the first place. The show wasnt getting the same ratings as gems like Fear Factor and Whoopi so NBC had to dumb it down for the masses. Its a shame. I hope they dont decide to kill Scrubs as well but I wouldnt be surprised.
If you think Whoopi is "dumbed down", and can be lumped with trash like Fear Factor, you obviously never seen it. It's one of the funniest, most intelligent, edgiest series out there. I liked Boomtown too, but I like Whoopi more.
I have actually not seen an entire episode simply because it is painful to watch. Where the hell do you get "intelligent and edgy" from? I havent seen more cliched and hackney jokes in a primetime sitcom in a while.
Real good way to fairly judge something, watch just a portion of it & then slag the entire series! She is trying to be kind of a liberal Archie Bunker, and is dealing with some of the same political & social issues. Unless you're a total right-winger, give it a chance. It's hilarious, much funnier now than in the first couple of episodes, as they have developed the characters more, and are dealing with the election.
Wow, coming in late July? This is excellent news. Shame NBC canned it. It was a really well-made show.
I just noticed that DVDSoon has Boomtown listed for pre-ordering...and it's listed at $43CAD (that's only about $31USD)!
Is there any news on getting the last few episodes released?
Best Buy has season 1 on sale this week for $17.99. I've never seen the show but based on reviews, I'm picking it up today.
