At the risk of repeating some links and news for those of you who read tvpicks.net or my journal, I figure I'll post some DVD news here. Better than nothing. Honestly, I'm just not poking around the web much these days or I'd write more here. Still recovering from the deaths of my grandfathers, and now my Grandma landed herself in the hospital for a little while, too. Still unemployed, too. So things aren't exactly coming up roses around these parts and a result I guess I haven't been in the mood to post here all that much. Will try to do better, butI make no promises.
You can now pre-order Season 4 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer on DVD from amazon.com. It's due out on June 10th, if you pre-order you can usually save a few dollars off the price (and you'll get it right away). Season 1 of Angel is out now, as are seasons 1-3 of Buffy. Yes, I know more seasons of each are already available in the UK (I've listed those on my TV on DVD page).
Season 4 of Sex and the City is due out in May. Lots of other cool TV DVD sets are forthcoming (check out the TV on DVD page for a much longer list).
TV DVD sets due out on Tuesday, February 25th include: Season 1 of Deep Space Nine; Series 1 & 2 of Red Dwarf; Season 2 of Queer As Folk; Tales of the City; the 4th collection of episodes of Dark Shadows; and the 5th collection of episodes of The Twilight Zone.
Release dates have now been announced for all of the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine DVD sets: Season One (February 25); Season Two (April 1); Season Three (June 3); Season Four (August 5); Season Five (October 7); Season Six (November 4); and Season Seven (December 2). I covet them.
Non-TV DVDs I'm excited about: Peter Gabriel's Secret World Live concert is finally coming out on DVD (on March 11th). The quirky Ted Demme film The Ref is due out in March, too (Kevin Spacey and Judy Davis and Denis Leary star in it). The special edition DVD of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home comes out in early March and is chock full of extras. (I still want the special editions of the previous Trek films, too).
Now if only I had more time to watch the DVDs I already have. If I didn't spend so much time writing about TV and DVDs, I'd probably have time to watch 'em!
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Blaargh. I bailed after the second season.
Star Trek: The Voyage Home: Effectively marked the end of Star Trek as an interesting and fun franchise.
Wot, no mention of the Babylon 5 season 2 DVD due out on April?
And did I hear a rumor that Homicide seasons 1, 2, and 3 may be issued in the next year or so?
