Season 1 of Miami Vice amazed me that all the music was intact. Even though I laugh as I hear some of the songs, like Lindsey Buckingham on the Great McCarthy (had forgot about that one) but it really sets the mood as a period TV show.

I don't really look at KR as a period show. Like Neil said the scores by peake are what make the later seasons (didn't care for the season 1 music). The purists say otherwise, but I think I would be able to carry on if some of the music were replaced.

Itd suck if they replaced my favorite music pieces such as the ones in later seasons like the music in Knight of the Juggernaut. But As long as its something small I dont mind but it would suck if they started adding in *?$# from current day something like rap or crap like that.

When you say the prince song may be gone,

Do you mean just the song been deleted or the whole scene containing the song?

Well, I know that for the Miami Vice: The Complete First Season set Universal took their time acquiring the licensing for the music. The set would have originally came out last year or earlier, but Universal vowed not to release the set until they could straighten out all of the music issues.

But they also have a lot less pressure to premier a DVD set by a certain time than they have to keep up a momentum between season releases. I think this was why Quantum Leap's first season was unaffected, plus the fact that Universal only had 8 episodes to worry about.

Personally, I wish those nozzles would just suck it up, spend the money for each song (which I know are ridiculously expensive but this is a BILLION DOLLAR COMPANY that will make its money back [and then some] when the set is released anyway!), and acquire the music for EVERY season before they release it at all.

That would never happen because it took at least two years just to release one season of Miami Vice. But I'd rather wait it out and have my shows intact as they ORIGINALLY aired rather than get them sooner and butchered. I like more for my money, not less, but that's just me.

As for Knight Rider, it sounds like good news so far. Season 3 is probably the most dependent on music out of all the seasons (and there's a good amount of songs featured by the original artists, too), so that is probably the biggest hurdle to worry about. But as for now, I'm glad that the second season seems to be intact.

That sounds ok, if that's all what's deleted/altered, I'll be happy with it and will definetely buy it when it arrives here as a scandinavian version.

This is what happens when you don't check KRO before going out shopping. :D

If I had known that the DVDs were starting to show up, I would've looked in FYE and possibly Wal-Mart yesterday evening. (I don't like going to it: the local one looks realllly uninviting.)

Only one song missing? Whew. I was afraid the soundtrack would undergo a 'Quantum Leap'-style removal. Glad to see that's not the case, but I've got my fingers crossed for seasons 3&4.

I'm confused.

Isn't the release date April 12th, 2005? Aren't there laws that keep retailers from selling media before the release date?

I seriously hope that when I drive nearly a half hour to the Wal-Mart nearest to my school on Tuesday that they have it in stock. I'll be royally pist if I waste my gas for nothing. My roommate is telling me to call before hand but I always feel like a dork doing that but perhaps it's not that bad of an idea.

I got mine!!!!!! South Florida people they have it on sale at Best Buy near Sawgrass Mills Mall. Just picked it up a half-hour ago. Honestly the clear packaging strikes as a tad cheesy but I'm pleased to get it.

Well I'm not sure if it's a state law or more of a contractual agreement. It is usually more enforced with recent blockbuster movies and relies for the most part on the consumer to report the infraction. But companies that break the street date and are found out usually get the shaft when it comes to quantities or delivery of the next hot item.



And very cool that you found it Timmy. You mean the interior cases being clear? Eh, the least of the worries to be honest, it's hidden away when you're storing it on the shelf. :)

Its not a law its just a contractual agreement that the Retailers have with the Distributors. Like Neps said if companies break the street date they delay the shipping on future products so most companies wont sell them till the release date.

I would listen to your roommate if I were you. Wal-Mart tends to suck when it comes to having things shipped on time. Like I said earlier in the topic I went to a few Wal-Marts and they all told me that they wernt allowed to sell it till tuesday and then when I went back to the one on Tuesday they were like well we didnt get it in yet and probably wont till next week. So if your going to buy it the release date your best bet would be Best Buy or Circuit City or something along those lines. Hoped this helped.


Luckily but also unfortunate I work on Tuesday morning but thats cool because I can pick up my copy of it before the store even opens on Tuesday. Although im only working till 11AM which is an hour after the store opens so I can just go straight home and watch Season 2 :-D

Neil,

I have a question about the teaser for Goliath. Is it the same one that Columbia House used, or the original 1 minute NBC version that has an announcer saying "And now, there's double trouble for Michael and KITT on the special 2 hour season premiere of Knight Rider..."?

Thanks,
Joe

They also reduced the price of the Season 1 set, so if you look on Amazon, you may see the Season 1 listed as pre-order. Nothing has changed, just the price reduction for MSRP.


I don't know about the rest of you but I do not like double sided discs. I know they may contain more data but I prefer the dual layered discs containing more discs. Less chance of them getting damaged.

Yep, it does include the croping into the dessert scenes with KITT. It also includes the 30 second teasers before the episode.


:) at least the teasers are there. some Extras!

If you are going to be driving 30 minutes out of your way to purchase the KR series, it would be a good idea to call. They don;'t know who you are and it will save you the $$$ if they don't have it! 8)

Good question Joe. It seems to be the other trailer, not the one NBC made. But do we know the history of the two trailers? Did Universal produce their standard trailer, and NBC took it on themselves to create a special one?

Just to update you all on the question of what happens to the companies that sell it early...

We had a store meeting this morning and the issue of this came up in my department meeting because apparently someone in our department mixed up a box and a bunch of stuff that wasnt released yet and it ended up on the sales floor and 2 of them got sold. So basically which means if the Company finds out about it our store will be fined $10,000 per DVD that was sold. I dont think it was the Knight Rider Season 2 but just to give you an idea what happens when stores sell *?$# earlier than they are supposed to.

I have mine now, which was delivered in the mail the day before the release date, which means it pays to get the DVD ordered early via Amazon.com ...:)
The DVD set was ordered in February and it's good I have the 2nd season on DVD, which is great! :dance:
I feel as if I'm reliving getting excited over "Knight Rider" having a 2nd season all over again, too! :shock: :D :!:

I wonder if David and the cast of Knight Rider get a complmentry set of Universal?

I think it would be a nice gesture from Universal.
