Everybody Loves Raymond Repackaged

I was at my local Target in Elmhurst, NY tonight, and I saw newly, slim repackaged cases for "Raymond". I didn't get a picture, but I was wondering who else saw these? Man, I want to update my sets, haha!

Re: Everybody Loves Raymond Repackaged

I recently bought the first volume of Moonlighting at Target, on sale for < $10. Opening the package, I was confused there was no list of episodes anywhere, not on the back of the package, and no booklet. I figured out later that while the disks were the very same, the original packaging was embossed cardboard with plastic trays and a thick booklet like you usually get with a TV series. I don't mind getting a keep case instead, but think there are certain lines the studios shouldn't cross. Obviously if I buy more seasons, I will be choosing the original release.

A race to the bottom, as usual.

Re: Everybody Loves Raymond Repackaged

I'll have to check my Target. I passed on the series a while back because of the bulky packaging and the fact that every set sounded like it had loose discs.

They do sound like the discs are loose, but trust me, I bought the sets, and the discs couldn't have been more secure. While I do like how nicely the sets are packaged, they are extremely bulky, and take up over half of a long shelf, and if I was able to sell the old ones off, I'd definitely buy new releases.

Re: Everybody Loves Raymond Repackaged

Sorry to bump this up, but has anyone bought the new sets yet and/or have pictures? At this point, thinking of selling and purchasing the new, slimer sets...

That's the problem. I'd LOVE to sell my older copies and buy the show's new slim sets, but they're nowhere to be found. Quite frankly, I'd like the show on Blu-Ray, but I don't see it happening. I think it already would have by now.

Re: Everybody Loves Raymond Repackaged

Target had a 2-pack of seasons 6&7 that I picked up about a month ago.

Maybe the early seasons were edited/assembled on 1" NTSC tape (like most other mid-1990s shows) rather than on film or HD tape and would have to be re-assembled (like Star Trek: Next Generation, but without all the pesky SFX)? The show began before the "HD era", so it may be that holding things up (surely the later seasons would've been edited on HD tape rather than NTSC).

I've seen this show in reruns so much, I've been pretty much overloaded on it, so was never in a hurry to buy the DVDs (syndication reruns kept me from feeling the need to keep purchasing remaining Scrubs seasons as they came out, too). I know I have the patience to wait-out the studio and skip any/all DVD releases of this show and wait for an HD one.

If a HD release never happens, then I'm sure there'll be plenty of second-hand/bargain sets floating around throughout the next decade or longer.

Which set would this be? Is there an Amazon, Target, or online BestBuy link you can point me towards? I'd love to sell my bigger sets ASAP.

Re: Everybody Loves Raymond Repackaged

I never purchased the big bulky sets. Now I'm collecting the slim sets. I picked up seasons 6-7 packaged together at Target, about a year ago. Recently, Best Buy had Seasons 1, 2 &8 for 9.99 each, which I picked up. And I got season 9 at Walmart for 9.99. All I need are seasons 3-5, and I don't know if they're available.
