I'm not sure why Season 6 went out of print. It was originally a MOD DVD-R release from Universal which they then quietly switched to pressed disc release.
I cannot say for sure but I got the impression that it went out of print because they had many problems with the sets. I remember reading about it (I think it was on this forum but I could be mistaken) and it can also be seen in some of the Amazon reviews. While they did seem to fix the issues it seemed like by the time they did they just decided to throw in the towel. Once again, I could be (and probably am) wrong about the reasons but that has always been my impression.

They should make the necessary corrections and release it again. Also what does that mean for Season 7 and the Hitchcock Hour in Region 1?

On James Burke's Connections:

I received the BBC version 2 days ago.

The BBC version is visually inferior to the $150 version from the late 1990's.

Image is extremely flat, with no black, only dark greys. Colors are very dull. Audio is fine.

It's better than nothing, but not by a whole lot. . .

In my previous post I forgot to mention the Jesse Stone TV movies. I rented the DVDs from Netflix and they were kinda soft, that is unusual for a Sony release. A couple of Blu-ray sets have been released and Stone Cold (the first movie broadcast) is now available on Amazon Prime (free!) but these use old MPEG4 transfers that look soft by modern standards. According to IMDB these were shot on 35mm so good transfers are possible. If anyone out there is working on a new Blu-ray releases please let us know, these movies have a huge following!!
