    Just read the news, Oh Boy[​IMG]
    Looks like a long wait. It figures.

    Thanks.

    I don't think it will be THAT long a wait.

    When we first heard it might be coming, we heard about a Nov. 2003 date, right? Well, MGM's announced their complete DVD slate through the end of December, and it's not on there, so it won't be 2003.

    In the news item I posted at TVShowsOnDVD, I had to say "All we know is that it won't hit stores before 2004", because that's the God's-honest truth. That's all I know.

    But my gut instinct is that it will be announced shortly for release in January. That's just a feeling, and you shouldn't place any bets on it.

    But if I'm right, it's just a 90-ish day wait from today. Merely a couple of months after the initial (unofficial, never-confirmed) timeframe. Not too bad.


    I'm sure half the forum would have loved to buy Green Acres (and Lost In Space) for Ron as a holiday present. Alas, he'll have to settle for a gift certificate as an "IOU". :wink:

    January 13th, to be exact. To see the final cover art for the release, you'll have to go to the TVShowsOnDVD news item; I'm unable to link to it here.

    Mister Ed fans note that the talking horse gets released the same day, at the same price, and you get 21 episodes spread out from over the first 4 seasons.


    Oh, and about the post above mine: don't you mean SCOOTERVILLE? [​IMG]

    There is an actual town in southern Florida called Greenacres, not too far from where I live. I always chuckle when I drive by the Greenacres City Hall or Greenacres library (which is surprisingly large, all things considered [​IMG]), although I then pay the price of having that damned song rattling around in my head for the rest of the day. [​IMG] It is located just where I said it is. Look up zip code 33413 or 33463 on MapQuest [​IMG]


    ("Remember, this is Eva Gabor, not Zsa Zsa. Eva is the Good Gabor. Eva will not harm you" - Nick at Nite promotion for Greenacres)

    Regards,

    Joe

    I really can't wait to get Green Acres: Season 1 in January because Green Acres is one of my favorite TV shows.

    BTW: The trailer park where I live (Breinigsville, PA) is called Green Acres.
