    Great news from www.tvshowsondvd.com!

    Tru Calling - Best Buy exclusive season 2 set
    Posted by Gord Lacey 4/29/2005

    Reader Steven Serridge emailed us last night with the news that Best Buy had Tru Calling: Season 2 up for preorder, which was listed as an exclusive to the chain of stores. We tried to get more information from Fox, since Best Buy doesn't list much information, but we came up dry.

    Here's what we know: the 6 episode set, which contains an unaired episode, will sell for $29.99. It'll be available on August 2nd. Hopefully we can dig up more information next week.

    I so want this set! but I am a bit disappointed that it is a best buy exclusive... I wouldn't mind so much but $30.00 for such a short season seems a bit steep to me!

    I probably won't be able to get this right away... but sure I will get it eventually. I HAVE to complete the set!

    Exclusive or not, I think that $30 will be the MSRP so Best Buy (or other stores) will have it cheaper. [​IMG]

    Is that officially going to be an unaired episode? They had the last episode pre-empted by a SIMPLE LIFE episode. I was HOPING that it would air in the next few weeks. (especially since critics have given this season of TRU some very good reviews)

    I kinda doubt it will air. The show is no longer listed on fox.com

    I recall from the Greg the Bunny commentary that if the network doesn't air one episode, they get to be paid off when it comes time to get the show onto DVD. So they'll hold one back sometimes.

    Is it true that the show got cancelled? I think it got better during season 2.

    It's a shame the show got cancelled. IMHO, the episodes in season two get better as they go on. I saw the last few episodes, but I'm sitll looking forward to picking up this set.

    My favourite part in season two is when Jack accuses Tru of murder in front of a large crowd/police by saying "Oh my god! She killed him". Jason must have attended the Keanu Reeves school of acting b/c when he delivered the line, I couldn't help but laugh.

    Thank God they finally listed a release date. I hope they have some extras like commentaries and deleted scenes.

    Wasn't really a spoiler, just a part of an episode.

    But yes, the show was very good in the second season. Even better than the first.

    I'll definitely have to add season 2 to my DVD collection. I really liked the few episodes of Tru Calling that I caught during the first season and really looked forward to a summer full of repeats to catch me up for season 2. Of course that never happened. I ended up buying the first season on DVD and I like what I've seen so far. It really is a shame that this show wasn't given more of a chance.

    $29.99 seems a bit high to me but if it is a Best Buy exclusive, I guess they can charge whatever they want to for it.

    Oh ok, I'd averted my eyes after the first few words so wasn't sure.

    I hope this turns out to not be a Best Buy exclusive because I don't have a Best Buy in my area (About every other big store is in the area except for Best Buy, Circut City, and Barnes and Noble).
