    I just spoke to someone at Warner Home Video Canada. She did say that nothing was official. But, she expected more episodes of the show to come out. The bad news is that they will probably be 2 episodes to a disc and not a season box set. And it would be a Canada only release. But, they still can be played in the US. Now, this might come sooner than we think. As she told me to call her back in a few weeks. If I hear anything, I will pass it on.
    If it looks and sounds anything like the pilot movie did. It should be great.

    Ooh, don't know if I'd be interested in a disc by disc way of collecting the series. I've been spoiled by the box sets (and Fox's new price poin for them - wish they'd lower X-Files). If she does call you back you might try passing that along, I think most people here would agree.

    Since I've already invested in the first Smallville disc, I'd rather they go disc by disc instead of me having a duplicate. I'll gladly pick up any forthcoming Smallville DVDs... the first one was top notch. Great news. Thanks for posting.

    Bring 'em on with a few extras, anamorphic transfers and in DD5.1. As was stated in the previous posts, the disc of the first two episodes is outstanding.

    I would never buy anything a disc at a time. Whenever a company does this it seems to be a lack of commitment on their part. I'd rather not take the gamble of investing in what would be the first couple of eps, only for the latter eps to get trapped in DVD limbo for whatever reason.
    Now SportsNight is how TV products should be treated...[​IMG]

    I wonder if they'll release a box once the first season has been released disc-by-disc.

    I won't pick these up like this since shipping costs are the biggest factor when buying from a Canadian website. I hope they'll reevaluate.

    Kinda off topic here, is it just me, or does the cover art for the first SMALLVILLE disc look kinda corny? [​IMG]

    Nick,

    The cover art is obviously more appealing to a younger female audience. My 12 year old niece thinks Clark is a hottie.

    WB should take a look at the Star Trek series.
    The original series was sold with the two episode each
    format and the Next Generations is being sold as the
    complete season format.
    I know more people who are dropping $100 per season,
    rather that buying each of the original series.

    Selling individual discs also runs the risk of consumers
    passing on average episodes and becomes a nightmare
    for stocking in stores.

    I like the idea of selling a pilot and then the whole
    season, just as long as you can get each.
    Twin Peaks would be perfect if you could get the pilot
    done in the same quality as the first season.

    If they did 4 eps per disk then I would have not problem with it, especially if it was priced like Stargate SG1

    Considering it was on the WB, they probably thought that was the only audience they would draw in. But I can't see watching something for the hot cast. I can't imagine anyone would. I mean, sure Buffy's hot, but I don't watch the episode going..."Oh yeah, she's wearing short shorts now!!!" seriously, the fact that she's hot really doesn't matter. Same with Smallville, but sadly, I have female friends, and they actually do watch shows for the hot guys. I just can't understand why...

    Yeah, I've been noticing that the price of Smallville came down since I got my copy! [​IMG] $3 cheaper than it used to be at Videoflicks.
