Last month we had the scoop
that Little House on the Prairie - The Complete Television Series
is coming to DVD on November 4th
, from ImaVision and distributed by Lionsgate. It will include tons of all-new bonus material
to accompany every episode of the program's run, including the post-series telefilms. But what fans have been wanting to know is whether the episodes will be the same edited cuts seen on the previous season set releases, or would they be included "as broadcast."
Now, thanks to reader "Missy M.," we have the answer. Missy tells us her husband wrote to Imavision and asked this very question. We hadn't had any luck getting the right people on the phone, but the e-mail "Mr. M." sent was quickly answered by the studio. According to the person that responded, the production department stated that the upcoming Little House on the Prairie - The Complete Television Series
DVD release "will use the same cuts/episodes that are currently available." The reply from ImaVision goes on to explain that those were the only versions of the episodes which had been provided to them.
