    We've already seen the cover art posted in another thread, but here's the first look at specs:

    Just in time for Oktoberfest! Beauty!

    I'm quite pleased with the announced specs, particularly the SCTV sketches. Commentary by Bob and Doug would have been great, but maybe they heard about Ahnold's pay for Total Recall and all of a sudden 10 bucks EACH seemed like morons' pay, eh! No mention of aspect ratio, though...

    Bring it on!

    It will be 16x9 ... I hope?

    I also would have loved a Spinal Tap-esque commentary.

    I must say, that I'm somewhat disappointed by the lack of a commentary track, but If I can pick this up for around $14, I'll probably still get it. Hopefully the SCTV skits are more than 5 minutes worth. I guess we'll see when the reviews start flowing in.

    Im pretty sure Warner will be releasing this title, not MGM. And I also think that Warner realizes this has a cult following so I'd venture to say that its pretty safe bet that it will be 16x9.

    Beauty, eh?

    Sounds like a real winner if it is indeed in OAR and with the cartoon and skits (hopefully lots!) of the Hosers from SCTV.

    My fave line: "I want you to take them to level 5"..."Level 5?"...."LEVEL 5!!"

    Was there a video shot for the "Take Off" song that they did with RUSH? I'd love to see that on the disc.
