Universal Studios has announced this morning the release of Miami Vice - The Complete Series
on DVD. It incorporates all 5 seasons of the show, previously released over the last two-and-a-half year period (has it been that long already?), into a single package that will be released on November 13th
. The 27-DVD collection will come in a Faux Alligator-Skin Box which holds the five "digipak" sets together in one place.
Good news for folks who hate double-sided DVDs: while the first two season sets of Miami Vice
were originally released on "flipper" discs in their individual sets, the season packs included in this collection will contain only single-sided DVDs! So instead of getting three double-sided discs for each of the first two seasons, you'll get six single-sided discs instead. That's how the disc count gets to "27." Nice!
From what we see of Universal's announcement this morning, there will be no other content that is new to this release. The only extras are the same five featurettes seen on the original Season 1 set
Cost is $199.98 SRP. As before, expect video to be the original full-screen picture and audio to be English Dolby Digital 5.1, with all original music intact on all five seasons. Stay tuned and we'll bring you a picture of that Faux Alligator-Skin Box just as soon as we can!
