    I can't recall if it was established at the time why Sony bought just the one season, and what the hell they intended to do with it. Did the reasoning (if that's the right word :lol:) ever emerge?

    In NZ you can get the full 4-season (full seasons) set in one pack, for US$88. No extras though.

    Not a bad looking box too. If I liked the show I would've snapped it up.

    What? You mean you weren't provided with a full set of the show? What kind of frelled-up operation are those thoddos running, anyway? :p
     
  5. Sony only bought the rights to S1 because those were the only rights available at that time, since S2-4 rights were still held by ADV.

    I read on a DVD board I visit that all of the Starburst Editions from ADV are now OOP (out-of-print), so it's possible that Sony may release the whole series now since they (presumably) hold the rights to everything (except the Peacekeeper Wars, as that's through Lionsgate.)

    I guess we'll see.

    That makes sense. It also makes sense that they'd sit on the first season 'til they get the rest. It'll be interesting to see what happens - I'd like to see some better quality sets available in R4. The ones we got were / are an absolute joke.

    Along with Lexx, this is a series I fancy having on DVD from time to time. So from time to time I check the prices and decide not to :p

    Your mileage may vary, from Ebay to Play.com, £28 to £80 :rolleyes:

    Now, all the starburst editions have gone OOP. Is Sony ever planning on re-releasing them?

    I did the same thing, I waited till they got rid of the double sided crappy ones. I have seasons 3&4 of the Starburst packs, never got to buy Season 1.
