    I was reading something in the Globe & mail today about the new season of Oz starting on showcase next week, and they said that the first season DVDs had outsold the Sopranos and Sex in the city combined. I'm a little wary about this statistic, since I know how insanely popular (and great) the Sopranos is, and how as spectacular as it is, Oz is still the HBO "B" show. Is there any way to check these sales figures (maybe they mean that it outsold the other discs in Canada only)? Hopefully this bodes well for more Oz on DVD though.

    This statistic may stem from Tom Fontana's website, which stated the first season of Oz sold more in its first week then The Sopranos and Sex and The City.

    It's just during the first weeks. That means very little, and of course does not necessarily correspond to total sales.

    I like OZ especially the 1st 3 seasons. But after that the show got a bit silly. But it's not a show I would watch over and over again so I've restrained from buying it.
