    Well, here we are in the month of May and there's one question that's really bugging me:

    Where's I Love Lucy - Season 2?

    I know Gord & David's site mentioned a May release months ago (as did The Digital Bits), yet we've got nothing. What is Paramount doing here? I've seen no pre-orders at all, and yet we are supposedly only days away from a release of this set.

    So, does anyone have answers to this mystery? I'd love to know.

    Gary "I'd think this is a big set for Paramount, and was expecting a good build up for it - but so far we've got nothing!" O.

    Ok, to partially answer my own question, I see that TVShowsonDvd did create an "update" on their February news announcement concerning the 2nd Season set. I didn't see that before, but it says the set has been delayed. And that's it. Nothing further. So it's still somewhat of a mystery to me.

    If anyone has anything new on this delay, can you share it with us?

    Gary "thanks" O.

    It's a mystery to us, too.

    This is indeed frustrating. My season 1 collection is getting rather lonely on the shelf. Maybe they're just taking their time prettying them up.

    It's especially strange considering that Columbia House is supposedly already sending Season 3 episodes to their customers! So the delay can't have anything to do with late transfer issues or anything technical. This is really peculiar, to say the least.

    Gary "hope David can get some news on this soon - my Season 1 set is getting lonely too, Will" O.

    It looks like May's Mystery has been solved. I LOVE LUCY - SEASON 2 is being reported as coming on August 31st, with a much cheaper pricetag. Hopefully this can be confirmed by David, Gord or someone else in the know.

    Gary "why Paramount moved this back so far is still a mystery though" O.

    Dave, there's a thread in the HT Software - Film forum (which, for some reason, hasn't been moved to this forum yet, even though Ron responded to the thread). In it, Andrew Budgell posted this:
    I LOVE LUCY: SEASON TWO - AUGUST 31st, 2004

    David,

    Scott is correct as to where I got my info. I guess the guy (Andrew) in that forum reporting the news could have been lying, but it sounded so legit I posted it here in hopes that either you or Gord could confirm it.

    Gary "hope we get some definitive news soon" O.
