ST TNG Season 2 Blu-ray availability

I see that Amazon will not have it until Dec 9 and other sites do not list availability until the 12th or 13th. Was it delayed or something? I ordered mine on Dec 1 from Amazon and they say it will not arrive until the 12th

You will directly get the replacement edition with corrected visuals.

I am not sure what that means? Is there a problem with the set already?

^ I suggest you check out the official Season 2 thread for all the details. Suffice it to say that the company CBS farmed the work out to wasn't quite up to the job.

Re: ST TNG Season 2 Blu-ray availability

None of the Best Buys in my area had it in stock on Tuesday. Also could not find it at two Walmarts and a Target.

It showed up as available at the Best Buy stores today (Thursday.)

But of course I went and ordered it on Best Buy's website on Tuesday. It shipped today; original arrival date was given as Dec. 13-18.

Didn't use Amazon because it was marked then as not even shipping for 9-12 days.

The availability of this set just sucks. I wonder why.

An update... I checked online with Best Buy and it indicated that the Best Buy nearest my house on the way home had it in stock. I stopped there tonight and they had several so I bought it. Price was same as Amazon's. I canceled the order I had at Amazon. I also noticed that they had the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy on Blu-ray for cheaper than Amazon ($55). Maybe Best Buy is getting a clue on how to beat Amazon.

Wasn't even in my Target's system when somebody checked yesterday, and a visit to a larger Target confirmed (along with a target.com search) that they're not carrying it yet.

...and I had a coupon that would have been just perfect, too!

Yes, Best Buy finally got them in in Buffalo, but only after I finally relented and ordered from Amazon (and too late to cancel) Capt. Harriman is shipping the set; won't be in until Tuesday.

I wouldn't count on that. The BB & WalMarts near me had no Doctor Who S7.1 blu-rays sets.

WalMart had the DVD's & BB was out of what I can only assume was the one or two sets they got in.

I haven't even bothered to look there for TNG S2 blu-rays. I always end up leaving the store pissed off that they can't be bothered to stock this kind of thing.

And I never buy something else when that happens. I almost always did when they had what I initially went in there for.

No, I think BB is destined for the scrap heap of retail has-beens.
