    I did a quick search and couldn't find anything on this, so I hope I'm not repeating information already discussed.

    This week, TVShowsonDVD and DVDTimes both reported the new Astro Series was coming to DVD. It is said to be a 5-disc set "containing all 50 episodes of the show, including 29 that were produced for the USA but have not aired up to this point". That sounds great, as only 20 episodes have been made available thus far (already on DVD here in Australia, as well as a few other places).

    However, the graphic on TV Shows on DVD (see above) clearly shows 5 discs that each say "4 episodes" on their covers. So if it is only a 5-disc set - where are they sticking these mysterious 29 episodes? And is my math wrong, or does 20 + 29 still equal 49?

    I'm guessing that those individual volumes were simply mislabeled. All the specs I've seen and received have stated pretty clearly that the set is 50 episodes on 5 discs. I wouldn't worry about it.
