    I will be. Maybe more for nostalgia sake than anything else. While alot of the 2nd season was cheesy it was still kinda fun. I'm really looking forward to the UFO Series coming in July . Loved Ed Straker's Car and those Great Purple Haired Moon Women !

    I will be, in a manner of speaking. Sure it was cheesy, but as a kid, I thought Maya was a babe, so I have to own the full set! [​IMG]

    I'll be getting them, although I'm not sure if I'll get them right when they come out. Lots of stuff coming out soon.

    Dave, if you don't mind my asking, where did you find out about the release of UFO, and is there any place to pre-order it. Thanks

    I'm on a UFO Mailing list, the Disks are available in PAL right now. A&E Targeting July for their release in the states. The Region 1 releases are not getting all the extra that the Region2 are getting like Ed Bishop Commentaries, Docs etc. However the A&E releases are the newlyremastered versions and they are reputed to look as good as the upcoming 1999 disks. I'll vote for better transfers everytime. The First two volumes in July much as in the 1999 releases.

    I never felt guilty for watching UFO its a good show. I did'nt think so at first, I really disliked it, but then a friend who really enjoyed it, talked me into watching a few episodes. Once I saw it thru one rerun cycle I was hooked.

    I will be getting these, in a manner of speaking: I plan to wait until the series is completely out, and see if A&E releases a mega-set (like they did with The Prisoner and Monty Python), and then get the whole thing at once!

    I'll be sticking with my R2 discs for the

    time being. Saw the screen grabs from the A & E

    Season 2 discs and found little or no difference

    in clarity and color, though to be honest the

    color (though perhaps more consistent) didn't

    look as vibrant on the grabs as it is on my R2

    discs, and reports are that there are some

    audio sync problems. With R2, we get superb

    menus (A & E's have been terrible), subtitles,

    and extensive extras like cast and crew

    interviews and merchandise photos information,

    plus a wealth of behind-the-scenes pictures.

    When A & E has released the complete second season,

    I'll probably buy the discs, especially if the

    final discs have some unique special features.

    The ones reported to be on the first batch seem

    mostly to duplicate Carlton's or aren't

    particularly compelling if they don't.

    I never saw the series on TV, and only got the first set of disks because I'm sort of obsessive-compulsive about cheesy science fiction DVDs. (ever see "Lifeforce"?)

    So anyway, Once I put in the first disk, and I heard theme music playing as the menu came up, I knew I was hooked.

    Today, I stumbled across the last copy of each the new sets in the local streetdatebreaker. I happened to have a 10% off "Customer appreciation" coupon so $25.19 each. not bad.

    Yea, I do plan on getting the whole second season. I can't wait to see this Maya chick...
