    I'm not sure how many of you are fans of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman", but I'd certainly like to see this series released to DVD. I seem to remember DVDFile reporting a couple years ago that a couple eps were scheduled to be released, but nothing ever came of that. Anyone think there's a chance of seeing this show hit DVD in the near future?

    May have to wait for syndication rights to clear. Then again it's showing on TNT so it may be a moot point.

    LOIS AND CLARK ran for four seasons, 1993-97. Columbia House is offering the series on DVD, but it is just 2 shows per disc.

    I might get them from CH if it was 4 episodes instead of 2.

    Well for me, Season sets or fugghedaboutit. I'm a big Trekkie, (Trekker), but no TOS due to lack of season sets.

    In regards to the Columbia House version, there are 2 eps per disc for (I believe) $24.95. And there's still no guarantee that all the eps will be released. This show had quite a large "cult" following, and I hope WB at least releases the first season to test the waters at some point.

    Lois and Clark was shot 16x9. It was running concurrently with Babylon 5, and I read several stories about both using the wider frame in preparation for HDTV. I should hope that when the DVDs come they'll be 16x9 anamorphic.

    I ordered the Columbia House DVDs. A month or 2 later I got a letter saying that they were no longer able to offer that series on DVD. I believe they still sell it on VHS.

    Hopefully they stopped production of the individual discs to do season sets. [​IMG]
