Late last year CBS/Paramount had been planning
a November 1st release of The Fugitive - The Complete Series: The Most-Wanted Edition
on DVD. Then, at the last minute, the studio recalled the title
"because it was inadvertently manufactured with discs that have potential technical issues.
" After a long delay, those issues have apparently been resolved, because now CBS DVD and Paramount Home Entertainment have announced a new street date for this 33-disc set: October 23rd
It's nice to see this back on the schedule at last. As of this writing, the studio hasn't revealed there to be any differences between this version, and what was previously announced on last year's press release
. If there DO turn out to be any differences between that version and this version, we hope to have information for you about such changes soon. Hopefully Amazon.com will also put this back up for pre-order very quickly, too! Stay tuned.
