    I saw on tvshowsondvd.com it has La Femme Nikita Season 2 listed twice.One says original. I was wondering if there is a difference between the one they are releasing soon and the one that 'accidentally' got released and canceled last July. Thanks

    Yup, it's a single song that was changed, and caused all the problems.

    Do any hardcore "La Femme Nikita" fans know yet which song has been changed now that the set is out?

    I don't have the answer to the song question, but I'm happy to say that Season 3 details were just announced by Warner: the release date is 28th June 2005, it will arrive on six discs and presented in 1.33:1 full frame with English 2.0 Surround tracks. English, French and Spanish subtitles will also be provided. [​IMG]

    OK, I found the missing song: it's "#1 Crush" by Garbage, and it was pulled from the "Double Date" episode.

    Ken...you are correct.

    http://dvd2.aldokkan.com/777HRA.html (See comment #2, from 3-6-05)

    This is a bit of a disappointment, since "Double Date" is a sequel to the 1st-season episode "Obsessed", in which the song is also featured (and for which it was cleared for the 1st-season DVD set). But at least Warners tried, and for that I give them major credit.

    I was one of the lucky ones who managed to get my hands on one of the original recalled sets, and I'm glad. I haven't had a chance to pick up this version yet (yes, I do indeed plan to get it, even though I have the recalled set!), so I have no idea what song they may have used as a replacement.

    BTW, any fans of the actual original music soundtracks from LFN should check out this excellent resource:

    Thanks for the info Ken and Linda.
    Since Garbage is my favorite band I'm glad I got a used copy of the recalled set relatively cheap from Ebay last month.
    It's funny though that Warner licensed a song that would return in season 2 just for the season 1 set. The only explanation I have is that they wanted to see if sales were good enough to do a 2nd season set at all. Or maybe the record label became aware of the success of TVDVD and wanted to re-negotiate.

    OK...I stand corrected...I think...

    I read the LFN newsgroup on Usenet, and one of our regular posters (very reliable and knowledgable) posted today that Number 1 Crush is indeed STILL in the teaser for "Double Date". So, the info which I "confirmed" above may in fact be erroneous.

    I still haven't had a chance to swing by either Wal-Mart or BB to pick up a revised set, so I can't check anything out for myself yet. But, looks like the search for the revision may still be on.

    Anybody else heard or found anything?!?

    Great news, Ken! Sorry that I cannot help with the soundtrack question, though. I have a copy of the recalled Season 2, but have no plans to pick up the new release with the replaced song.
