    Apparrently a production copy is trying to gauge support
    for this show on DVD. Anyone interested in this please email the guy in the post.
    Thanks

    Hi all,
    I'm posting this survey for Kate Duncan.
    Faith
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    SURVEY: "Space" on DVD?
    I was recently contacted by a film and video production company that is looking into producing licensed DVDs of "Space:
    Above and Beyond". They tell me: "We intend to produce a thoughtful, creative and compelling set of discs that will allow
    significant insight into how the series was created and where it was intended to go. This would include production designs
    and interviews with the creators and actors. Like yourself, we are huge fans of this program and believe that it never
    received the acclaim or attention it deserved... We would like to determine how big the current fan base is and whether or
    not a DVD series would sell. We would also like to establish pre-sales within this market, if at all possible, as a way to get
    Fox to move on the concept."
    Having been a SAABer since its first broadcast (six years, now!), I know there is interest -- I'm just not sure how
    *extensive* that interest is. So... please send an e-mail to me at with "Space DVD Survey" in
    the subject line. Tell me whether you'd be interested in watching "Space: Above and Beyond" episodes on DVD, and
    whether you'd be willing to order and pay for them in advance of production. I'll forward all comments to the production
    company.

    I would buy a "Space: Above & Beyond" set without question. But to pay for them prior to production?? I think not.

    This would be a definite "Must Buy" for me. I'm a big fan of the show and would love it on DVD.

    I'm in, especially if they don't go nuts on price. There were what 24 episodes? It'd be nice to get them all for around $150 or less. Especially with all the good TV shows hitting DVD. I'm not much for paying ahead of time, but if they want to do something like AnimEigo did with Macross that'd be ok.

    I think it all depends on who's making the set, Fox or and independant house. I think they might ask for a deposit on the set, but the whole price up front? I don't think so.

    I would buy this series on DVD without thinking twice.

    But I wouldn`t pay in advance.
