    On the Amazon web site there's a comment about problems with disc 9:

    " Great show, but beware!, February 3, 2006
    NowhereMan was a fantastic show! It truly was one of the first "appointment" television shows. However, concerning the DVD...I've purchased 3 copies and ALL three had a problem with DVD #9, which includes the final episode. Amazon is supposed to be investigating this problem, but I have not heard as to whether there is a resolution. Beware before you buy."

    Has anyone else encountered this?

    hi Emma

    Could you tell me what the problem is and where on the disc you encounter the error? I will check it against my copy.

    Thanks

    I popped disc nine into my DVD player today, but since I'm not up to that final episode yet, I didn't want to play it. I did play through a couple of the extras, and they played fine - no problems.

    Gregg, I was quoting a review from the amazon.com website. I haven't bought Nowhere Man yet.

    hi all

    I sent an email to the Creator / Producer of NwM. He talked with the DVD producer. There have been 11 complaints of disc problems out of the xxxx number of copies sold. I think that this is a non issue?

    BTW, dont cut / punch your cigars with a pencil...its bad karma.

    It seems like yet another Amazon false alarm review.

    Gregg, thanks so much for contacting the source in order to find out about this rumor. In the future, if I don't read about it on the HTF, I'll ignore it :).
