Hopefully this does mean a DVD set will be coming, presumably from WB. And hopefully it will be comprehensive. The show's been rerunning on cable for quite a while now, and I got to catch up with most of it that way last year, but they left off a few episodes, specifically the Egghead and Shame 2-parters which both featured rather stereotypical "Indian chief" characters, presumably for fear that that would be offensive. But they were products of their time, and I don't think the Indian stereotypes were any worse than, say, the Middle Eastern stereotypes in the King Tut episodes which they did rerun, or just the general exaggerations of all sorts of character types throughout the show.
