BTW, for those who are wondering:

Knight Rider: Season 1 = 22 episodes
Sliders: Seasons 1 & 2 = 23 episodes

The Knight Rider set seems like a good deal, but Sliders is way overpriced, IMO.

for SLIDERS

for the pricing! (actually, when you compare it to X-Files or Sopranos or Oz, the pricing doesn't look quite so bad, but I was hoping for less.)

Knight Rider pricing looks good. I would guess, $43.99 at Costco.

Looking forward to that one. Glad they included the TV Movie.

True but when you compare it to Buffy/Angel... I'll end up getting both anyway. What's with the price difference between Sliders and Knight Rider? THey both have the same amount of episodes.

I know I've said it about a hundred times before, but where's "The Rockford Files?" Universal promised us this in 2002! It's now 2004! <sigh>

May pass on Sliders for now even though I would not mind having the set. Way too pricey though.

Guess I will wait and see what the actual purchase price will be with discounts ala Amazon.com.

For Sliders, I'm guessing about $70 or so.

Well it's about freaking time on Sliders. Wasn't that set supposed to be released last year? Better late than never I guess so I'll pick it up on the 3rd.

Knight Rider on DVD. Nice. When I was a kid, I would drop everything and anything to watch that show.

Now I'm glad I only bought a select few of those Columbia House VHS tapes of KR. The premiere, the ones with KARR, the ones with Goliath, the one that started the last season when he gets turned into a convertible and got that "super pursuit mode."

Yeah, it occured to me most of my favorite KR eps involve KITT getting destroyed.

How many seasons of Sliders were there? I don't recall there being a whole lot.

Edit: Found info below.

I'm willing to bet the preorder price with STL will be $56.69.

Thanks for info.

Jerry O'Connell was around for only 4 seasons. Not sure I'd be too interested in buying the 5th season. I'd be surprised if it didn't come with season 4 though.

And you know - the crazy thing is that Knight Rider SHOULD cost more, with the music clearances that Universal would have to do. And yet somehow it's half the price.

So, no - I'll pass on Sliders (rental, but no more than that) but Gimmie the Knight Rider!

I want the Sliders season 1 and 2 set, and maybe 3, but I can live without 4 and 5 (especially as things became so convoluted because of off-screen issues). However, there's no way in hell I'm paying that much for a set of 23 episodes.

Sliders was a show that really could have benefited from a little focus.

Liked the early years of Sliders but the price is waaay too high. As with Quantum Leap, I can wait on this set until the marketing folks come to their senses.

Too bad they priced Sliders so high. Would have easily bought the first 3 seasons for Buffy/Angel prices but not at that price.
