    It is a fun show to watch! This program and "Lost" are the favorite new shows to watch in my house.

    Many people don't look forward to Sunday night because they know Monday morning is coming up fast, but Housewives makes it a little more bearable if you know what I mean...

    This show is my favorite on TV right now and I am glad to see they are going to get this out before the next season starts so people who have missed episodes can get all caught up.

    I absolutely LOVE this show, and I've watched it since the beginning, but I am not sure if I would get the DVDs. Not sure how much replay it would have for me.

    DH is one of TV's tastiest treats. And the August release date for the first season is perfect -- just in time to get reacquainted before the start of the second season.

    Between this and Arrested Development. Sunday night is the new "Must-See TV."

    I'm glad. I haven't had a chance to see this yet and considering the tv studios no longer have summer reruns.

    I just hope it's shown widescreen and full surround sound.

    Excellent news. I'm sure it'll be packed with tons of special features, too.

    Would be nice if they could include the original pilot with the different actors as an extra.

    Do you know who the original actors were? I know Sela Ward was offered a role, but I don't think she accepted. The ladies they have are perfect and since so many were associated with other shows (The beautiful Marcia Cross with Melrose Place, Teri Hatcher with Lois and Clark, and Nicolette Sheridan with Knots Landing), it makes it a little more likely those shows will come to DVD too!

    Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer from "Twin Peaks") was the original Mary Alice.

    Dave,
    I caught one episode a couple weeks ago of DH, but I really want to see it from the beginning. Netflix has it available to add to my queue of DVDs that they are sending me. I hope you didn't think I meant that they have it available to rent yet. But when it's released I can push it to the top of my Queue. This way I can have my own "marathon" before S2 starts!

    Also, John (the boy-toy gardner) was originally played by Kyle Searles. Apparently, there are a few brief shots of him in the scene taking place at Mary Alice's wake (he can be seen when Susan "joins" the other girls at the table and a couple of times when Lynette gets in the pool).

    Plus, Rex Van de Kamp was played by Michael Reilly Burke in the original pilot.
