    Flipping through the television section at one of my local stores, I came across two copies of Homicide: Life on the Street, Season 4, even though the official street date for the product isn't till the end of the month (3/30/04). While the price was a little more than I wanted to pay, it was definitely worth it to get this set almost 4 weeks early.

    kinda surprised that any store would have it availble to sell so far ahead of the street date. usually we get ours the Thurs/Fri prior to street.

    Some of the smaller stores in New York had the DVD for The Matrix Reloaded or some big movie out at least three weeks early, so this isn't the first case.

    This happens happens quite a bit with AandE titles. One reason may be that they sell their titles exclusively
    at their web site sometimes as early as six weeks before
    general release date and then send out the overstock. I have seen the other Homicide and Danger Man titles about a month before at some Best Buy's.
