British retailer HMV are listing a Millennium Season 2 box set for release on September the 27th, and a box set of Steven Bochco's gripping courtroom drama series Murder One for September the 6th, both with an RRP of £29.99.
I NEVER thought I'd see that show again! I wonder if they'll follow with the short lived second season? Seems like they should have just released one set of both... still I'm not complaining as the first season is the better one...
Believe it or not, Season 2 of "Murder One" was nearly as long as Season 1. S1 contained just the one case and was 23 episodes. The first 12 episodes of S2 were one case (and aired in the fall of 1996). The series was then pulled from the lineup until May 1997, when the final six episodes aired over 3 nights as "Murder One: Diary of a Serial Killer." So S2 technically has 18 episodes, and I can only hope both seasons end up on R1 DVD.
And hopefully Millennium's 3 seasons will have a speedy R1 release schedule as well!
Season 2 had three cases - the murder of the governor, then the murder of the sports team manager, then the serial killer that killed murderers.
I recently saw the second season on reruns - I missed it first time round, as it clashed with another show. While not as good as the first season - I was disappointed that they abandoned the whole one-case thing (although at least they didn't a case-a-week stories), it was still pretty good. I would buy both seasons.
