    It might be a decent release by VEI standards. I don't recall if there was ever a syndication package for this show, as it only aired for one season. Could be original length network prints if that's all CBS Television has available.

    That's what I'm thinking too. Since it was only one season doubt there were any syndication prints made. I just wonder what shape the original prints are in.

    And I wonder if this release will have Paramount Television's normal and tall-peaked Blue Mountains, as were on the original NBC broadcasts in 1982-83 (given VEI's track record with Petrocelli and The Magician, among others, I would expect nothing less).

    I, too, am excited about this one; never thought I'd ever see it again (on DVD, at least).
    I have vivid memories from when I was 7 years old that fall of '82, watching Powers of Matthew Star & Knight Rider back-to-back - both brand new shows that fall.

    Never thought it would get a release. I loved the show and often think of it when I see Peter Barton in Friday the 13th 4. Day one pick up for me.

    I think it did run once or twice on SciFi. It might have run once on USA.
