Same. I just found myself yesterday spending around 60 bucks on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Season 5. It should arrive at my house in two or five business days... The store never has my DVDs in stock! I always order them now! Well, after season five, I only have to get season 7 to own the complete series of DS9! Then comes voyager, and if I feel like it, TNG... And of course the Animated series... I have hgeard positive things about the episode Yesteryear... Supposedly the only good episode in the entire series... That's why it lasted a season and a third of quarter... It probably had two or three episodes in season 2... Season one was a full blown season...

Most of the series I want still haven't been released, and it doesn't look like they will be for a while. I could import but I'd rather wait for Region 4 copies.

What about Wonder Years -- I liked that as a kid ---  ;)

I read about Wonder Years -- not being released in the Wall Street Journal because the songs were not licensed for DVD at the time the show was made so it would cost lots of $ to have the series come out -- Any comments?

That happens with some old shows and even anime. An anime series has just started being released out here and they had to change the theme song due to licences. The original theme song was by Duran Duran and was just gonna cost too much. :-\

Thanks, Racx!  I feel it is too bad when the music changes because sometimes the music helps make the show.  I guess it is people's greed that causes this to happen.

Why does the word Greed bring to mind a Ferengi?  ::) I got season 5! A friend's mom lent me the first season of Farscape. I find it to be much different, but in a good way!

Only time will tell...  :P Although I do wish they would put Mighty Max on a DVD! They have a fan DVD, but I would rather not get that one... I also would like to see The Real Adventures of Johnny Quest on DVD someday...

Do you mean the tiny leperchaun, and the last unicorn? I loved the last unicorn! I hear they are doing a live-action remake. I would do anything to get the last unicorn on DVD!

Oh man I remember the Last Unicorn. It was great, I really liked it and would love to see it come out on DVD.
A live–action remake of it? ??? Oh goodness I hope not.  That would just be horrible. There is just no :no: way they could turn that animation in to a live-action movie and do it ANY justice. Just leave it as it is and release it on DVD for us to enjoy again. ;D

Hey, I'm just reporting what I heard. I thought the original was good enough, but some people would probably disagree with me. Some people seem to be blinded by the surface appearance. Since I grew up on KQ, I am able to see things for what they are on the inside and not be blinded by it's appearance. I can see how good something is despite how "outdated" the animation may be. Although I must admit that the old black and white movies really put me off... I guess my eyes can't penetrate that surface! XD Maybe it's because my eyes are so accustomed to modern day technology with it's action and special effects... Who knows... Perhaps the new James bond and Harry Potter movies really change my vision of things... XD

Sorry DD :angel: I wasn’t griping at you. I honestly did mean it as a gripe at all. I just liked that show, if we’re talking about the same one. While I haven’t seen it in a long time I think it would still hold up rather well now days (maybe that’s just my minds eye making it look better). I’ve never been a fan of movie remakes though; very few do any justice to the original. I actually kind of like the original black and white movies, like Casablanca, I would never want that to be colored.

I do not know what that means, but I am not blaming you for anything. I am not mad... We all have different views. It's life... I think a few remakes could do well, depending on the movie... I'm betting in years to come, the Harry Potter movies will be remade with more special effects and longer times to incorporate the lost scenes. Besides, the movie industry is in a slump right now anyway. They need business, and so they do what they have to to get money. I would like to see more sequels personally.

*Revives*

A DVD that I'm looking forward to is the Extended Edition of Peter Jackson's King Kong, which will be released on Nov 14th.

There were quite a few things in the trailers that I noticed never made it into the theatrical release, so it will be cool to see what is new, very much like the Extended LOTR DVDs. :)

*Hopes that there's a commentary*

I <3 The Last Unicorn! It's been a favorite of mine for as long as I can remember, and it's already available on DVD too. CLICKY!

Zelly has both the novel and the movie, which I've yet to read but she says the movie is a very faithful adaptation.

As for a live-action version, it could be awesome if it were done correctly, but also has the potential to be very disappointing indeed.... :-\

Another November DVD release I'm looking forward to is Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut

It's basically the film as it was originally intended to be, because during mid-production Richard Donner (director of the first Superman) was fired by WB due to various disagreements, and the reigns were handed over to another director to complete it. Of course the new director had a different style of filmmaking, and chose to take the movie in different directions, deciding to discard a good deal of what Donner had already shot to replace it with his own scenes. These cut scenes will now be put back into the movie.

Of course this new cut could never replace the theatrical cut, but it is definitely something I'm interested in seeing. :)

Wow I didn't know that was out. Thanks. :D
No problem! ;D

That sounds cool. I want to see that when it comes out. I probably won't buy it but I'll probably rent it.
