    The recent announcement of the now canceled Conviction on DVD concerns me a bit, does anyone know if this will delay the release of the next Law & Order set? NBC Universal is already releasing these very slowly and we haven't had any season of the three successful series since December. I had been expecting a season sometime in September, but I wonder if they'll be willing to release one that close to Conviction.

    I had the exact same question. They really need to release the intermediate Seasons of SVU (3 and 4) and Season 2 of CI this year. In addition they need to pick up the pace of the original.

    Dave and Gord, I know we are regurgitating an old subject, but can you guys call your contacts and get us an update ?

    I've started to wonder if this is a case of them not making much money off these releases... and if it is... part of the problem is the way they are releasing them. SVU is hot right now, from my admittedly amature reading of the market it would seem to me that they should get at least that series out probably before the fall premier.

    The problem with releasing these, I reckon, is the very nature of the programmes themselves. They're proceedurals with little emphasis on character, and are very episodic. So an episode from a first season tends to be not much different than an eighth season episode, or whatever, so there's not much incentive to 'catch up'.

    Plus these are all over television like a rash; its not like you're not going to get an L&O fix every week.

    So unfortunately I can see why these aren't heading to DVD as fast as other series.
