    Right on...[​IMG]...
    Only one downside - unless I get a good raise soon, I dunno if I can afford a new season every 2 months! I'm glad they're doing it, but man...this is gonna be tough. [​IMG]

    Woody! Shhhhh! They might hear you. This sort of release schedule might convince Fox that if they pull their finger out we can have Buffy S6 and Angel S3 on DVD alongside the VHS!!![​IMG]

    Even though I'm strapped, I am ordering these discs "throughout 2002." If anything, it would be nice to see TNG in its entire frame and without TNN's stupid logo/message bar.

    Hmmm. It's about the R2 release and it's nothing we don't already know, or strongly suspect.

    I'll wait for official R1 info before I get exciting. Not trolling here, just trying to point these things out.

    hmmmmm...
    well I don't really have a lot of money to spend usually so...
    B5 season box sets or TNG season box sets?
    I think I'll stick my plan with the B5 season box sets (if Warner ever releases them that is). [​IMG]
