A few days ago we first brought you
the exciting announcement that Buck Rogers in the 25th Century - The Complete Epic Series
would arrive on DVD November 16th
We know that this is a 5-DVD set (expect some or all of the discs to be double-sided), containing all 36 episodes of the show, with an $89.98 list price. We also know that this is going to be shown in the original broadcast format of 1.33:1 video. What we hadn't had any word on yet was the extras...until now.
Naturally, there is a focus on the bonus material for this set, due to our April report
that Universal had decided to drop the participation of show stars Gil Gerard and Erin Gray, who were ready to do commentary tracks and other possible supplements for the set. Since then, there hasn't been a word about this, and so far, Universal hasn't announced what extras, if any, would be included on The Complete Epic Series
Well, today we have bad news for fans of Erin and Gil. We've gotten information that Universal has not - yet, anyway - changed their minds in regard to commentaries or interviews with the two stars of the show. As of right now, neither of them have recorded anything, I'm told.
Of course, there's still a small amount of time for the studio to change their minds on this, and get it done in time for the November 16th release date. I think they know how MUCH fans would appreciate that material to be included. For now, I'd suggest that potential buyers continue to send the studio feedback using the contact methods we described in our previous news story
. And if anything changes, or if any extras whatsoever DO get announced, we'll be sure to let you know. So stay tuned!
