We let you know
back in May that Survivor - Season 17: Gabon - Earth's Last Eden
(2008) was in-the-works for DVD, as well as Survivor - Season 18: Tocantins - The Brazilian Highlands
(2009), too, as manufacture-on-demand titles available via Amazon's CreateSpace MOD program. In early August we followed up
with a report that Season 18
had shipped to customers starting 8/5, but the Season 17
set wasn't shipping at the time.
Now Amazon/CreateSpace and CBS DVD have begun shipping Season 17: Gabon
as of today, September 11th
. Our thanks to longtime reader, "Nick," for pointing it out to us! Cost, as previously reported, is $34.95 SRP. The 5-disc set comes with many extras, and they're similar to what was seen on last month's 18th season set:
- Meet the cast - an introduction to Survivor's seventeenth season contestants.
- Exit Interviews - the extended exit interviews held immediately after contestants are voted out of the tribe.
