    Great news and i love the show

    Grew up with it and was about the same age as Kevin and could so relate to his struggles. I will definitely get this box when it's released.

    Time/Life really like TV shows that feature Robert Picardo. ;)

    I've been re-watching very average quality TV rips lately, so this is awesome news! I really thought this one would never happen.

    Really glad this is finally getting released... but I can't help but feel like it's 10 years too late. The entire series is available on Netflix, so I don't know that I'd necessarily feel the need to purchase.

    For the original music, I assume. I don't know if the version of Netflix has any other edits or cuts, but they have a lot of re-recorded music.

    I gotta say - as expensive as it was for a single season box set, the Freaks and Geeks Collector's Edition was well worth the cost back in 2004. Of course, that was done by Shout Factory. I can't speak as to the quality of the other series sets done by Time-Life.

    Well, you can see for yourself what the other box sets by Time-Life are like: Time-Life DVD Box Sets

    I said out, dammit!
    I was Kevin's age in the late 60s, when the series was set. My wife too - she loved to watch the show and see Winnie wear the same clothe she had back then. :lol:

    I can only speak for one...I got their Get Smart box set day one and it's awesome.

    Great show, grew up watching it, but won't be buying the DVD. I'd rather just watch it on Netflix.

    But the Netflix version doesn't have the original music.

    Sorry to drag up an old thread, but the pricing has been announced three versions: $249.95 (just the discs), $299.95 (the discs plus extras including a new soundtrack album) and $499.95 (discs, extras and the yearbook is signed by the cast).
