Mill Creek Entertainment is preparing a May 18th
release of The Greatest American Hero - The Complete Series
, a 9-disc set to replace Anchor Bay's discontinued 2006 collection. Mill Creek's new version is certainly low-frills compaired with Anchor Bay's out of print "Deluxe Collector's Tin
," but it does come with a bonus 20-minute interview with the show's creator, Stephen J. Cannell. All for just $29.98 SRP!
Also available on the same date is Mill Creek's re-issue of The Greatest American Hero - The Complete 1st Season
, a 2-disc set with the show's freshman year (just 9 episodes), plus the 20-minute Stephen J. Cannell interview as well. Price is a mere $14.98 SRP. Mill Creek made this available exclusively at one particular retail chain previously, in a pack with their version of Season 2, but we're only reporting on the "wide" general retail releases for these products. You can pre-order either The Complete Series
OR The Complete 1st Season
(in the new Mill Creek versions) from Amazon.com right away. Package art for each one is seen below:
