Um, wouldn't that be 24, not 23, third-season episodes? Haven't tried to do this in from memory in several decades, but (not necessarily in order) here's what I can think of:
Spectre of the Gun
Spock's Brain
Elaan of Troyius
The Paradise Syndrome
Is There in Truth No Beauty?
The Empath
That Which Survives
The Enterprise Incident
Day of the Dove
Let That Be Your Last Battlefield
And the Children Shall Lead
For the World Is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky
Whom Gods Destroy
Plato's Stepchildren
The Savage Curtain
The Tholian Web
The Mar of Gideon
Wink of an Eye
The Cloud Minders
The Lights of Zetar
The Way to Eden
Requiem for Methuselah
All Our Yesterdays
Turnabout Intruder
...that's 24. My wife can't believe she married such a geek (I got 23 from memory; saw many of them first-run at age 12).

It'll probably be 26 if they include both versions of "The Cage" like they did on the season 3 dvds.

Well, forget this shit, then. If it ain't Blu-Ray, I ain't buyin'.

What's holding up the Blu-Ray versions, anyway? I hope it's something other than they're bitter at Blu-Ray for winning the war over HD-DVD. :p

Are any of you actually going to buy the DVD?
Are you going to hold out for the Blu-Ray (like Babaganoosh above) or give the whole deal a pass?
Inquiring minds want to know!

I'd consider the Blu-Ray after the obligatory waiting for a price drop, but why would anyone bother with the regular DVD release? All that work to rescan the film, clean it up, add new effects and release it in HD, then downres it to 480p??? What's the point?

CBS seems to be attempting to salvage what was going to be hybrid DVD/HD-DVD releases as they did with the Season 1 Remastered set. A Blu-Ray release will happen. In fact the films are getting the remaster treatment and there's been talk of 2009 releases for those. It's just a matter of when.

Cripes. How many times will I buy the third season in different formats? I might pass up on this one and wait for the next.
