UK get Knight Rider 08 - 4 Disc DVD in September!

Post by DaveR » Thu May 14, 2009 5:43 pm

Hi

I've been lurking on these Forums from the UK for years, but having had a quick look round the site I couldn't find this news any where else so I thought I'd take the plunge with my first posting...

I recieved an e-mail from http://www.Play.com today announcing that Knight Rider: Season 1 (2008) (4 Disc) was now available to Pre-order on their site! - They claim it is due for release on 14th September 2009!

http://www.play.com/DVD/DVD/4-/9732591/ ... duct.html#

It seems quite strange that us Knight Rider fans in the UK are going to get the whole series on DVD before the US, but I'm not complaining!

I see that the show is getting a lot of collumn inches in the UK Press, some good, some bad - The repeat of the Pilot on Sci-Fi today (Thursday) was listed as "Best Drama" in the Free "London Lite" paper tonight...

So come on NBC I think the UK want season 2 - and we've only seen the Pilot so far!!!!

Awesome!

and only £25 too - quite a little bargain. I never like to wish the summer away, but roll on September!

Yep, already ordered this baby :) And unlike with Amazon, Play.com doesn't allow pre-orders until they have solid dates available, so we can pretty much trust this release date. I still have the U.S. version on order too (even though I don't have Region 1 DVD player).

BTW, has anyone noticed anywhere if there will be a BlueRay release? When BlueRay was announced I (half joking) told my friend I won't upgrade to BlueRay until Knight Rider ships on those :)

I'm pretty sure Shapeshifter said he had spoke to one of the KR producers and they confirmed the DVD release but had no plans to release it on Blu Ray. I would post a link to that thread but I cant seem to find it.

I really do hope they change their minds seeing as the series was filmed in HD, perhaps they will if there is a big enough demand for it.

I don't know to pre-order DVD from Amazon.co.uk or not, i'm hoping for Blu-Ray, if there would be a Blu-Ray release, i would be pre-ordered it already.
