Hey DeeF, I'm getting it too, but it isn't avalaible from amazon yet.
Can you tell me if the film and/or the doc have spanish subtitles?

The packaging is similar to the Cassavetes set; an external slipcase holds 3 inner thinpaks, one each for the theatrical version, the TV version and the remaining 2 discs.
I've taken a very brief look at a couple of scenes and the thing seems to be on par with the usual Criterion standards. I found the Christmas dinner scene in particular really well presented, with colors which appeared lively while not too saturated.
One last thing worth mentioning is that Criterion has given the option to watch the TV version as both a feature film and the original series of episodes, by featuring a "play all" button for the former as well as direct links to the various episodes.

haven't yet seen F&A, but can say that out of the 200 or so Criterion discs I've seen, not one of them has forced subtitles.

I have the box set & the subtitles are not forced. I haven't had a a chance to watch much of it yet, but the PQ looks excellent from what I've seen so far.
