Conan: The Complete Series coming to DVD (not O'Brien, or the anime series)



From TVShowsOnDVD.com:
The late-90's series Conan The Adventurer (often just called Conan) arrives on DVD this Sept. 21st from Image Entertainment. It stars Ralf Moeller, who has been seen in smaller roles from a number of films, such as Cyborg, Universal Soldier, Batman & Robin, The Scorpion King, and this year's Max & Grace.

This action-packed fantasy takes place twelve thousand years ago, an undreamed-of age before recorded history filled with fantastic kingdoms across an uncharted world. An age of superstition and myth populated by mystical wizards and menacing creatures, this Hyborian Age spawned a true hero, Conan. With the aid of ragtag warriors Otli, Bayu and Zzeban, he quests to free his homeland from the rule of an all-powerful sorcerer and deals with beautiful, fiery bandit queen Karella.

This special box set of the entire series provides dazzling, sword-swinging entertainment for the entire family. Episodes: The Heart of the Elephant (Parts 1 & 2); Lair of the Beast-Man; Heir Apparent; The Siege of Ahl Sohn-Bar; A Friend in Need; The Ruby Fruit Forest; The Three Virgins; Labyrinth; Ransom; Amazon Woman; Shadows of Death; Homecoming; Imposter; The Curse of Afka; The Taming; The Crystal Arrow; The Child; Lethal Wizards; Red Sonja; The Cavern; Antidote.


Screen Format: Full Frame
Audio Format: English Stereo
Length: 957 minutes
MSRP: $ 49.99
Release Date: 9/21/2004

This was a guilty pleasure of mine; I may have to pick this up.

Wow, I forgot about that show. It was okay, kind of like the Beastmaster series on TV but maybe slightly better.

I recall seeing an episode of this and pretty much hating it. It was certainly no Hercules or Wizards and Warriors.

I don't remember this series either. Well being that it only lasted a season, that may explain it. How's it compare to Herc, Xena, or Beastmaster?

EDIT: Oh after looking at the TVShowsOnDVD link, and seeing the cover-art, I do remember this show. I think I may have fleetingly caught an episode or two. Wasn't too bad. And for a MSRP of $50, that'll translate to about $35 or so. I'll probably pick it up sometime. I'm still debating on whether or not to get the Beastmaster sets. They're only $24 each.

I say the more syndicated shows that come out on DVD, the more chance I'll eventually get that Jack of All Trades series set!!
