    If anyone here owns it, please post a review. Links to other online reviews would be appreciated too.
    I've been waiting for years for this DVD, and I hope I won't be disappointed.
    Also, "Clockwise" is coming out on DVD! Woohoo.

    I have it on pre-order, I'll post some thoughts when it arrives. Surprising more people don't seem to be interested in this - I couldn't pass up the chance to own them on DVD [​IMG].

    Just picked it up from my local B&M for $49 CAD. Its one of those cardboard jobs with three discs inside. I'm going to watch it later this afternoon to see what its like.

    You really should search through the active threads first. There's a post on this already:

    Curious as to what the reviews are saying-- my brother and I ordered this as a gift to our folks for their anniversary on Saturday!

    When I stopped by Best Buy this morning I didn’t see it on the shelves, I was really looking forward to seeing these again!
    Anyone find it at Best Buy or Suncoast, etc. ?

    Thanks for the replies, guys. I'm looking forward to your comments.
    Mark, sorry about that, I normally search first, I just forgot. Thanks for giving the link to the other thread, it was very informative.
    Seems like there's still some confusion about the extras on the individual discs vs the box set, I hope Patrick and Jehan can clear that up.
    I will see if I can find it in the store today.

    Is there any added value in buying the cardboard box set? I think I'd prefer the 3 keepcases...

    I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it.

    Well, I've watched parts of the disc and it looks good but since I've only ever seen it on PBS how bad could it possibly look?
    It was nice to see Connie Booth in all her glory. Mmmm [​IMG]

    I'm also thinking that the individuals are the way to go. I hate those cardboard cases.

    Patrick, how are the extras (interviews, commentary tracks, aso)? Anything of interest there?
