    Brilliant Flash display, Malcolm -- an absolute riot! I watched every episode back when they first aired, and I cannot believe how well the shows stands up today in repeats. I've seen most episodes over 20 times, and they seem even funnier now than when they first aired 12-19 years ago!

    Now let's hope Designing Women season sets are coming soon.

    I'm a GG fanatic, but never understood the popularity of DW at all...

    The set has been in Amazon's top ten since they began taking preorders. It is pretty amazing that is is ranked higher than the Seinfeld sets. It would be quite something if this outsells Seinfeld. Nov. 23 is going to be a great day since I am also looking forward to Seinfeld.

    Dave has posted some cover art over at TV Shows on DVD. Check it out: http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/newsitem.cfm?NewsID=2199 What do you all think?? I like it for the most part, except for the double chin photos of Bea and Estelle! haha Either way, this is one Golden Girls fan who can't wait for November 23rd.

    Not crazy about the cover. Would have preferred a group shot. Also, there is a "20th Anniversary" flag over the pic of the cover but I thought the show started in 85. Small complaints. I am really looking forward to this set, even though I watch it on Lifetime via TiVo about 7 times a day.

    It did, but the set is only being released about 6 weeks short of their 20th anniversary so why not put it on there? I think the cast photo from '85 would have worked better as a cover, but this one is okay.

    I like how BVHV is using a large point typeface on the side of their TV releases. Most TV show Boxed Sets I see have teeny tiny little writing (i.e. Buffy, Futurama). So far BVHV's designers have been hitting homers (can't wait to see what they come up with for Gargoyles!).

    Well, technically their 20th Anniversary would be September 2005.

    November 23...November 23...The roommates are all gonna laugh at me but I don't care. [​IMG] No more Lifetime reruns or not being shown on Thursday and Friday nights.

    Just as long as these shows are UNCUT we'll be fine.

    So true. No one wants to buy DVDs of the truncated syndication versions aired on Lifetime.

    They ARE going to be the uncut versions as originally aired on NBC, correct? They won't pull an ALF on us, will they?

    Wow,

    This will be an expensive week for me.

    Nintendo DS, Games, Seinfeld DVD set, Golden Girls DVD set, and two other things all released the same day.

    Glad I saved ahead.

    Counting down to this as well, it has been a long time coming.

    The good news for fans is that Disney will be releasing "The Golden Girls" at a fast pace. Season 2 of "The Golden Girls", as well as "Boy Meets World" Season 3 and "Home Improvement" Season 2, are on the schedule for next spring.

    I've posted preliminary cover art for these three upcoming sets at http://www.ultimatedisney.com .

    Very excited this is coming, but will wait to see reviews before buying. Hope it's not the syndicated edited version...

    If these are edited, those responsible should have to listen to St. Olaf stories until their ears bleed! [​IMG] [​IMG]
