    This was posted on tv shows on dvd. I am so happy this is coming out. Hopefully the episode order will be corrected as
    Heir Apparent although fimed 4th is actually the series finale and should be seen last. Great show!

    UPDATE:

    Just a follow up and correction on episode order:
    On disc 1 Heir Apparent IS NOT THE FINALE as I stated (Heir Apparent which originally aired last as #22 was filmed fourth).
    Heir Apparent should be watched as the last episode on disc 1 (watch as the 5th episode on disc 1)
    for continuity reasons. Lethal Wizards IS the SERIES FINALE. Explanation below IN NEW POST:

    The late-90's series Conan The Adventurer (often just called Conan) arrives on DVD this Sept. 21st from Image Entertainment. It stars Ralf Moeller, who has been seen in smaller roles from a number of films, such as Cyborg, Universal Soldier, Batman & Robin, The Scorpian King, and this year's Max & Grace. He's probably best known for his role alongside Russell Crowe in Gladiator.

    This action-packed fantasy takes place twelve thousand years ago, an undreamed-of age before recorded history filled with fantastic kingdoms across an uncharted world. An age of superstition and myth populated by mystical wizards and menacing creatures, this Hyborian Age spawned a true hero, Conan. With the aid of ragtag warriors Otli, Bayu and Zzeban, he quests to free his homeland from the rule of an all-powerful sorcerer and deals with beautiful, fiery bandit queen Karella.

    This special box set of the entire series provides dazzling, sword-swinging entertainment for the entire family. Episodes: The Heart of the Elephant (Parts 1 & 2); Lair of the Beast-Man; Heir Apparent; The Siege of Ahl Sohn-Bar; A Friend in Need; The Ruby Fruit Forest; The Three Virgins; Labyrinth; Ransom; Amazon Woman; Shadows of Death; Homecoming; Imposter; The Curse of Afka; The Taming; The Crystal Arrow; The Child; Lethal Wizards; Red Sonja; The Cavern; Antidote.


    Screen Format: Full Frame
    Audio Format: English Stereo
    Length: 957 minutes
    MSRP: $ 49.99
    Release Date: 9/21/2004

    Update on Conan Dvd:
    First a quick review, Picture quality is fine colorful and clear
    with some minor compression occasionally (5 episodes per 1 sided discs,
    last disc has 2 episodes) Sound is clear and crisp. Episodes are uncut
    as memory serves.

    Just a follow up and correction on episode order:
    On disc 1 Heir Apparent IS NOT THE FINALE as I stated (Heir Apparent which originally aired last as #22 was filmed fourth).
    Heir Apparent should be watched as the last episode on disc 1 (watch as the 5th episode on disc 1)
    for continuity reasons. Lethal Wizards IS the SERIES FINALE. Explanation below:

    When the show ran originally, one of the actors appears to have
    left the show after the third episode (Lair of the Beastmen)
    and a new actor takes over a new role on the fourth episode
    (The Siege of Ahl Sohn-Bar) 17 episodes later the series finale
    airs (Lethal Wizards which has a definite and satisfying ending
    to the series). Then Heir Apparent aired and because this was really filmed fourth with the original actor
    before a new actor had been introduced into the series a new voice over was made explaining
    why the new guy was gone and why the old guy was back. Confusing right?
    To rectify this simply watch Heir Apparent after The Siege of Ahl Sohn-Bar and everything fits perfectly.
    Hopefully this helps anyone watching the show.
    Kindly forgive typos.

    What Patrick said! I love the Conan mythos, and I am wondering, since I never got to see this, can any of you tell me if these are adaptations of Robert E. Howard's stories, or is it "based on" the character created by REH?
