In mid-November we reported
the great news that Michael Landon's Highway To Heaven - Season 1
was making its long-awaited DVD debut almost immediately, but it would exclusively be available online for a while. A couple of days after that we followed up
with news that "March 2005" was the expected timeframe for that to hit stores (we also told you about a second online-only purchase option for a "best-of" type release).
Well, who wants "best-of" releases? Not me! And not most of you, either, since 97% of TVShowsOnDVD voters for this series say they want season sets! And that's what is coming to stores in 2005, as A&E is quick to tell us. However, the March timeframe has slipped just a bit.
is the in-store date for Highway To Heaven - Season 1
. It's the same 7-DVD, 24-episode release that A&E offered by direct order at the end of November. And the price is still $79.95 SRP, but you know that online sellers like Amazon and brick-and-mortar stores such as Best Buy and Wal-Mart will surely offer this at a discount, bringing it to around the $60-$70 range.
We're very pleased that we get to pass on this Highway to Heaven
news on Christmas Eve..."the Boss" would approve! Frankly, though, we're a bit surprised that they would miss the obvious Easter tie-in. Ah, well...we're just happy to get this. Here's another look at the cover:
