Rich Man, Poor Man (mini-series) - A&E Home Video to Release 'The Complete Collection' on 9 DVDs!


Looks are promising that this will contain both Rich Man, Poor Man AND Rich Man, Poor Man - Book II in one set!

Well, we have to admit that this one caught us entirely by surprise! A pre-order listing at Amazon was added today for "Rich Man, Poor Man - The Complete Collection." This shows it to be coming from A&E Home Video, with a September 28th release date and a cost of $79.95 SRP (but you can lock in your copy at a discount, by clicking the link above).

With a title like "The Complete Collection," fans will be wondering if this includes both the original 12 episode mini-series (that aired starting in February 1976) AND the 21 episode sequel mini-series Rich Man, Poor Man - Book II (which began airing in September 1976). Well, Amazon's entry doesn't have too much information at this time, nor has A&E formally announced the title yet.

But Amazon shows it to be a 9-DVD set, which is enough room for all 33 hour-long episodes. On the other hand, Amazon's listing also gives it a 720 minute running time, which is just 12 hours...but that's got to be a mistake, because you don't need 9 discs for a twelve hour running time (three DVDs would be enough room for that). So, for now, based on the title and the disc count, we're going to ASSUME it's both mini-series in one big package. We don't have box art yet, obviously, but stay tuned for updates!
