NEWSRADIO --Not coming out on 2/3 ??

The Newsradio (1st and 2nd Seasons) DVD was supposed to come out on Feb 3, but now I see that Amazon has changed the release date to "undetermined".

Anybody know anything about this?
I was just about to order it.

There is good and bad news on this one.

The bad news is that it has been delayed. The good news is that the delay will bring a better set.

From www.tvshowsondvd.com on 12/27/03

A few weeks ago we told you that NewsRadio was delayed. The set was originally scheduled for release on Feb 3rd, and the new date, or the reason for the delay, wasn't known.

This past week we contacted Columbia TriStar to find out why the set was delayed, and we got some good news. The set that was to be released in Feb was going to be a 3 disc set with very few special features. Creator Paul Simms caught wind of this and called Columbia TriStar and asked to take part in the set. Simms has material that can be used for special features and plans to add more. Because of Simms' involvement, the set couldn't be finished for 2/03, and the new date isn't known.

My sentiments exactly. I am really looking forward to this one (excluding the Lovitz seasons).

I'll gladly wait longer for this if Paul Simms indeed has some great stuff for bonus features. Newsradio is still to this day one of my all-time favorite shows, and I'm glad it looks like it's going to get a decent treatment on dvd.

While the quality did decline after the death of Phil Hartman, you have to admit that the D.B. Cooper plot line was pretty hilarious. Matthew asking Mr. James if he is "Doobie Keebler" cracks me up every time.

Probably my favorite show of all time. Depending on what the extras are, I don't think that I really want to wait for it. I guess that I have no choice. My seven taped off VHS tapes will have to hold me over

So many great episodes.
