More TV shows on DVD - some faves!

Saw these announced on www.davisdvd.com from Universal (NBC shows):

Amazing Stories - Season One (AWESOME!)
Bionic Woman - Season One (Where the hell is the Six Million Dollar Man?!)
Alfred Hitchcock Presents
Miami Vice - Season One (I don't care about this but tons of people do)

Old news:
Also on tap for those that don't know yet are Season sets of the original Twilight Zone ($120 per season, ouch) and the 1985-1987 version as well ($70 per season, season 2 & 3 combined into a second set).

Yeah, I just saw this too, and I am excited for Amazing Stories too!

How many seasons were there? My guess is 2 or 3, hopefully I'm wrong and there are more...

I can't wait for Las Vegas S1, which Universal has announced, but without a street date.

Hopefully this year!

Is Alfred Hitchcock Presents the 1980's version or the black and white version?

I am hoping for the 1980's version. There was one episode with a prisioner trying to escape from prison that still haunts me to this day......

Is the episode you are talkng about the one where the inmates hides in a coffin, gets buried alive, with the idea that someone is supposed to dig her out?

That one freaked me out too. It was a remake of an original story from Hitchcock Presents from the 60's.

I don't know if Universal owns this but when will they release:

Tales from the Darkside: Season 1 ??

I've been waiting forever for this set to come and still no word.

Anyways.. I can't wait for The Amazing Stories set. Also the much anticipated Bionic Woman: Season 1 set. It's about time!

Can't wait for Season 2 of this set where they feature my favorite episodes as:

Kill Oscar (The Fembots and the Weather machine.. love the music behind it)

and

Doomsday is Tomorrow (A.I. against Human Bionics.. let's see who outsmarts whom)

Also on tap for those that don't know yet are Season sets of the original Twilight Zone ($120 per season, ouch)
I have been considering buying the Twilight Zone. Would it be cheaper to wait for the season sets, or buy the 3 or 4 "collection" box sets they have now?

Yeah, I would buy these in a heartbeat. HBO recently announced Dream On so maybe Crypt isn't far off.
