A&E will release the 1958 TV show MIKE HAMMER as a 12 DVD box. Decent pre-order price as Amazon is 62 bucks.

For those who've lived through the original Back to the Future and Season Six of the Office Blu-ray packaging, you'll be happy to know that Season Seven of the Office is in normal overlapping hubs like Season Five (and comes with a free poster of the cast laid out ala A Saturday Afternoon). Thank God Universal gave up on that Worst Packaging of All Time

Good to know. And also good I never had to deal with that ridiculous debacle. (BTTF, I got the UK, The Office, I've only had on DVD) So Season 7 will be the first time for me to get on BD.

One good addition not on the previous season:

The Blu-Ray edition of "Modern Family Season 2" has a "resume playback" function, so when you have it on "Play All" and you eject the disc, the player will save the place you left off. Something definitely necessary for TV season sets.

There is no greater TV set feature than the one on the Lost Blu-rays. You are able to utilize "SeasonPlay," which plays the episodes one after another like any other "Play All" function, but at the end of each disc, much like a multi-disc video game or a multiple laserdisc film, it instructs you to insert the next disc (along with some cool "What's coming next?!" spoiler-free teases). Once you insert the next disc, it automatically jumps right to the next episode, skipping even all those FBI shenanigans. It's cooler than it sounds. And it also saves your place.

"Community Season 2" comes with multiple ugly subtitles this time: with on black boder English caption subtitles, and bright yellow Sony English subtitles... I really don't know why Sony can't do white like they have on their Blu-rays.

Paramount is releasing Quentin Tarantino's episode of CSI on Blu-ray (Surprised we don't actually have a Tarantino thread to put this in...)

Yes. I haven't seen it since it aired, but I still remember the rather amusing complications the episode kept piling on

Is anything less functional than the forum's search function?

Good news for those who haven't already bit the bullet: HBO's repackaged the Wire: Complete Series in normal keepcases:

You mean I don't have to awkwardly make space for it on top of the DVD rack along with my Mel Brooks Blu-ray collection and I Love Lucy complete series set?!

Is that this listing? It has the later release date but the customer photos look like the original release.

Nice packaging. Hope they do the same for the Six Feet Under set.

Is the repackaged version of The Wire already OOP or something? Amazon is out of stock (and while they had dwindling stock, there was no indication that there was "more on the way").

check out the screwed up "The Invisible Man" TV series on DVDBeaver, with the squished ratio on the first episode, the cropping on the later ones, no lossless audio, squeezing the entire 11 hours on 1 disc...

Not that I'd have any interest in watching this series again (cropped or not), but I've never forgotten the hilarious image of an "unconscious" Ross Martin being walked out of a room by the invisible one - a great bit of physical acting.

Not a fan of the show, but that SRP strikes me as very reasonable! Hopefully it'll be a precident.
