FINALLY!!

And yes, extras would have been nice, but I am not surprised by the lack of them, considering the fact that the first season doesn't have any either.

Great news but the MSRP is too high for 3 discs. If the 4-disc S1 retails for $80, then the 3-disc S2 should be $60.... There I go being logical again! Of course I'll get it but it seems like gouging to me.

17 Episodes...

Since there are 3 DVD-18's, I guess we will get:
Disc 1 : 3 3
Disc 2 : 3 3
Disc 3 : 3 2

Thank goodness. There were lots of rumors they weren't even going to bother with the second set... I'll be picking up both sets now...

I'm wondering if they'll also release a couple DVDs with Showtime Outer Limits episodes the same day like they did last time.

I think DVD-18's are double sided, so in actuality, it's like 6 discs.

There were only 4 discs for the first season set, and it had 32 episodes.

Let's be optimistic and assume there will be supplemental material with this release. Commentary tracks, interviews, etc. Then it won't hurt so bad to shell out the $$$.

But STILL -- It's nearly 17 hours of viewing, right? (Okay, without comercials, it's still 10 hours of viewing )

The announcement has already been made, and there are no extras. But I don't care (much). I will have no problem paying for this set, especially when I know that most retailers will have it available for under $50.

Oh, and BTW, this was a 60's TV show, before the time when commercials became the dominant life form, so the per-episode run time was betwen 51 and 52 minutes. So, we will actually be getting about 14 1/2 hours of pure sci fi entertainment .

I did know this, and I was trying to be funny, as my was meant to convey. I actually saw these episodes first time out in my far distant youth. And yes, there were FAR fewer commercials than today.

Sorry to hear there will be no extras, though. (sigh) - But am VERY anxious to get my hands on the set, nonetheless! Happy happy. I had thought the poor sales for set 1 convinced them NOT to release this set at all... (I HAVE to stop babbling... sorry)
