    I just signed a "Millennium on DVD" Petition. So far 1029 signatures. A box set of all three seasons would be a definite purchase as would 24.

    Thanks!

    Regarding 24, this has been discussed in threads over in the TV section of this forum.
    Fox, if you really want to ensure a good return on the home video sales of a 24 box set then please include additional footage to fill the commercial time, if that is at all possible. Many people may be on the fence about buying this series on DVD. The fan base has already sat through the whole thing and known what's coming. They may not all want to shell out for it. But if you offer it with a significant amount of "never-before-seen" content, plus the other 2 filmed alternate endings as supplements, I'm sure many more fans will be intrigued enough to go for it.

    Are you suggesting there is already existing material that takes place between the commercials (besides the little teaser that says "Every second counts..." which usually seems to be made up either of alternate angles or footage just shown/about to be shown)

    Otherwise it might be impractical.

    I would love to see "24" come out on DVD, tomorrow (sorry, I know that isn't reasonable) averaging 3-4 episodes over 6-8 DVDs. I don't think this series would need much in the way of bonus content though I agree the two alternate endings that Kiefer alluded to would be fun to see, along with adapting the website material for DVD.

    It might be interesting to hear commentary on selected episodes, i.e. the family on episode one; Nina, Tony and Jamey on Two; Sen. Palmer and his wife on Episode 23.... but it wouldn't influence my decision whether or not to buy the set. It would just give me more to listen to.

    I wish FOX NETWORK would re-consider and show 24 re-runs over the summer. I never watched this show, but with all the buzz I'd like to check it out and not have to catch it for the first time in the second season.

    As far as extras I think it would be interesting (considering all the episodes have a similar look and feel to them) if they do a commentary, that they could have each commentary focus on a different aspect of production.
    such as actors, director, cinematographer, art department, sound/music, editor, writers, producers.

    If there is truly extra footage per episode to fill in the commercials, then you would only be able to fit 3 episodes per disc. Making it 8 disc set. Can you say expensive. It is likely they'll break it up into two sets and make them more affordable. People might be more willing to spend $60 on month and $60 the next month versus $120 all at once. Here's hoping for a timely release.

    It would be nice to round up the time to 24 hours, but I'm surprised at all the discussion here and other places online that treat this as a realistic possibility. We're talking about *six hours* of additional material here . . . . it is simply not going to happen, nor should fans expect it.

    Nonetheless, it's a great series as is.
