MSCL may be gone from the tv screen, but there are lots of good (and bad) new productions airing each week. Talk with other MSCL fans about your favorite shows or the shows you hate. Of course you can also discuss TV show DVD releases here.

From tvshowsondvd:
After the pleasant suprise a couple of weeks ago, when we found out that The Sopranos - The Complete 5th Season would make it out June 7th (instead of the previously mentioned timeframe of "late 2005"), we knew it wouldn't be long before HBO Home Video and distributor Warner released the rest of the details. Yesterday they did just that.

This will be a 4-DVD set that lists for $99.98, and isn't supposed to be advertised for less than a $79.99 discounted price. We had previously mentioned that there would be 4 commentary tracks, and who two of them would be by. Now HBO has revealed all commentators:

* 4 audio commentaries with Directors Steve Buscemi, Peter Bogdanovich (Oscar Nominee for The Last Picture Show), Mike Figgis (Oscar Nominee for Leaving Lost Vegas), Rodrigo Garcia (Six Feet Under)
The only other listed extra is a "Seasons 1-4 Recap"; that plus the 13 episodes are the main selling points for this compilation. We expect to also see the normally-included "Previously on" and "Next on" sequences, too.

Are they kidding with that price? I don't know how much seasons 1-3 sold for, but HBO has no business asking that much.

I am mildly awaiting the new season to begin, frankly I found last season pretty disappointing, and on the whole, anti-climatic compared to the preceding season, and considering they promoted it as the "sh** is going to go down" season.

The previous seasons of the Sopranos all had the same list price of $99.

That's just how much HBO charges for their DVDs. If you look at their other shows, it's about the same.

The Sopranos
$99 for 13 hour long episodes

Sex and the City
$39 for 12 half hour episodes (S1)
$49 for 18 half hour episodes (S2-S4)
$49 for 8 half hour episodes (S5)
$49 for 12 half hour episodes (S6, part 1)
$49 for 8 half hour episodes (S6, part 2)

Six Feet Under
$99 for 13 hour long episodes (S1-3)

Oz
$64 for 8 hour long episodes (S1-3)
$64 for 16 hour long episodes (S4)

Ah, I guess that makes sense (the price difference between the 1/2 hour comedies and the full hour dramas). I only own Curb and Sex&City seasons, so that explains it. (Still waiting for Aril$$)
