    According to TVShowsonDVD.com , Anchor Bay is releasing season 1 of "The Greatest American Hero" (3-DVDs) on February 8, 2005. I can't wait! I loved this show when I was a kid. [​IMG]

    I was really looking forward to this one, but after seeing what a horrendously lousy job Cannell & Anchor Bay did on the 21 Jump Street dvd, I'm going to hold off on buying this until after street date so I can see what the reviews sound like. Caveat Emptor, and all.

    I'm pretty sure that the A/V quality on this won't be so great in light of the age of the show and the reviews for other Cannell shows. Still, I'd buy this set even if it was sub-VCR quality, I love this show so darn much. The price is right,too, considering that there aren't many episodes for the first season.

    It would be nice if they had William Katt and Robert Culp do a commentary track on a couple of episodes. The two of them were great together on the show. [​IMG]

    GAH has been recently run on Showcase in Canada. The prints I've seen looked very good. Significantly better than the prints played of 21 Jump Street on one of my local stations (in Philly). So I suspect the source material for GAH may be superior to start with, and I'm hoping for a nice release of the show.

    I have this show off the original ABC run, and I'm ready to place my order for the DVD set *now*!

    Aw hell, I'm all over this. I already told my fiance that I'm buying it no matter what, despite the fact that we're buying a house and planning a spring wedding. She asked me if I wanted her to sew me a supersuit. How cool is that???? [​IMG]

    Well I've only seen 2 online stores selling it: DVD Planet for $20.97 (not including shipping & handling) and Deep Discount DVD for $17.99 (including Free shipping). I have no idea what it would normally sell for. But I doubt you'll find a deal that's better than Deep Discount DVD. [​IMG]

    The only way I won't buy this is if they change the theme music. (They wouldn't be that cheap and dumb, would they?)

    Ouch! The loss of the theme song would really hurt. Let's hope the rights holders aren't as money-hungry as the ones holding the rights to the themes for Dawson's Creek and Married with Children.

    Since the theme song was written and produced specifically for the show, I doubt very much that it would be cut from the DVD.
