    According to http://www.thefutoncritic.com/cgi/go...wswire&id=5857 , "Will and Grace", "Kingpin", "Saved by the Bell", a smattering of "Saturday Night Live" releases, two "Homicide" season sets, a Canadian release of "Little House on the Prarie", "It's a Very Muppet Christmas Movie", "Providence", and "Rebecca's Garden" are all coming to DVD.

    "Ed", "Crossing Jordan", and "The Pretender" are in talks for an Artisan release.

    SNL and "Muppets" sound good. How about a best of Conan O'Brien set, NBC?

    Saved by the Bell: The Complete First & Second Seasons on September 2!

    This is easily the greatest news in the history of the DVD format.

    SNL releases? Let's hope it is the good seasons and not those one's in between that no one wants to admit to...I assume as well that these will be 'best of's' and not complete seasons?

    Will and Grace...that would be a purchase as well.

    Paul, the info is from the article linked in the first post. IIRC, all SBTB season's were fairly short.

    Joel, SBTB S1 was with Miss Bliss, in Indiana, though the exact same school as Bayside in California, go figure [​IMG]

    I agree craig. This is fantastic news. SBTB, I have my ReplayTV record it every morning. I can't wait for the DVDs. I have a feeling Season 1 will indeed be Good Morning Miss Bliss...but renamed to SBTB as it is in syndication. This way the product line would all have the same name.

    This news has made my day, week, year [​IMG]

    Maybe it'll be GMMB with SBTB "season 1" in the same set?

    The article says Starlight will be releasing episodes of Rebecca's Garden in October, implying that will be its DVD debut. But Starlight is releasing three discs culled from the show on April 15. Not a big draw, I know, but I just wanted to clarify for interested parties.

    Totally thrilled about Saved By The Bell. I wonder if by First & Second Seasons, they mean the first two of the High School years or the 13 episodes of "Good Morning, Miss Bliss" and the first high school season.

    I have no doubt these will sell well - even my rudimentary understanding of demographics tells me that people between the ages of 15 and 30 buy a lot of DVDs, and these are the people who grew up watching this. Great, great, great news!

    Disney owns Scrubs, and I think they'd be the ones to release it.

    I'm a little embarrassed about SBTB, but I watched it recently and found it held up a lot better than I thought it would. Still, the one I'm looking forward to is Little House. What kind of quality can we expect from Imavision Direct, though? I'm used to the show looking pretty crappy and faded in syndication. I hope they can spruce it up. Either way, a must-own for me.

    EDITED to note that Luke is the fastest draw on the net for Buena Vista data!

    Well, we already knew some of this: Kingpin (but in-stores news is certainly welcome), Will & Grace (but a street date is great to get!), Little House on the Prairie, and Homicide: Life on the Streets.

    In fact, here's box art for both Homicide (5/27 release) and Profiler (6/24 release):
    [​IMG] [​IMG]



    But there is a *LOT* of new info there:
    * Saved By The Bell (yaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy!!!...dances around the room naked)
    * Saturday Night Live releases (I assume the "spotlights" mostly continue the exisiting series; the 25th Ann. 5-disc set is the one I want!)
    * Muppets (always welcome in my house)
    * Providence
    * and perhaps different episodes of Rebecca's Garden (Randy is, of course, right as usual...there are 3 Starlight DVD releases of Rebecca's Garden for 4/15th...maybe Brian at FutonCritic just got a wrong date?).



    Adam...thanks for passing this on! [​IMG]

    The Muppet one is good news in my book.

    As for Saturday Night Live, I'm feeling a little mixed. I was hoping for season-by-season sets, but if it starts to look like it'll never happen, I may go for this set.
