This imaginative family drama series chronicles the sub-conscious adventures of 11-year-old Jay Ziegler, who is in a coma after falling from a tree fort. As he lies in a hospital, watched over by doctors, nurses, and his mother, Jay's mind journeys to another world - one without adults.
Fans of the mid-'90s Canadian series The Odyssey
have been clamoring for a DVD release of all 39 episodes from the CBC program. Last week, the folks at OmniFilm made those wishes come true, and sent out the following e-mail to their mailing list of fans. It says that a 4-disc release of The Odyssey - The Complete Series
is now available...but not in stores! However, they will sell it to you directly for CA$99.99, plus shipping and handling fees. This is great news for folks interested in the series, and we thank everybody who wrote in with this info (there were a lot of you, but Elyse Salberg deserves a special mention for all the help!). Our thanks also to Gary at OmniFilm, who sent us a look at the front and rear package art for this release, which you'll see below the e-mail that has all the purchasing instructions:
Dear Fans of the Odyssey,
The wait is FINALLY over... the DVD set is ready! I want to thank you for your patience while I worked to have this project completed. It has been a few years in the making and I believe the finished product looks wonderful. I hope you all agree.
You can now purchase all three seasons of the Odyssey on DVD for $99.99!
Simply reply to this email or write to firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, mailing address, and preferred payment method (either cheque, money order, or credit card via PayPal). Please note that there will also be a $2.00 handling fee and a $10.00 flat rate shipping fee for anywhere in the world.
As soon as payment is received your order will be shipped and you will be sent a confirmation email.
I can't wait to hear from you!
