    DVDDrive-In is confirming the rumor that has floated since the Sci-Fi Channel retracted the info from their website. The entire 20-episode original run is coming to DVD from Universal this October.

    This means I'll finally get to see the 4 episodes Sci-Fi never aired.

    I knew this was coming. I prayed to the DVD Gods and they have saw fit.

    Damn, with all these stellar releases coming out at the close of the year, am I supposed to skip meals, not use the car, steal toilet paper rolls from gas stations, work seven jobs, etc etc to make ends meet to get all these must-haves?! :eek2:

    This release in particular just may be my most anticipated of the year! :glasses:

    Yep... this is definitely not a good time to be in a low paying, shit job. Lots of great stuff recently released and on the near horizon.

    Nevertheless, I'm super stoked this is coming out.

    This is awesome news! I just taped the last 8 hour run of Kolchak that Sci-Fi ran. I was hoping for a DVD release. Darren rocks!

    This is shaping up to be a very expensive next few months for me. This DVD set is a must have My hopes have been answered.

    Kolchak: The Night Stalker - From the VSDA floor - Season 1 date confirmed
    Posted

    I've been at the VSDA (Video Software Dealer's Association) show in Las Vegas all week, and I heard some great news from some rental stores that had meetings with Universal. The studio has plans to release the first season of Kolchak: The Night Stalker on October 4, the same day as Alfred Hitchcock Presents (and the same date we posted last March). We'll have more information when the title is officially announced.

    I am so excited about this release, and on the same day as Alfred Hitchcock Presents too. :banana:

    I truly hope that Universal fixes the low-grade flipper discs they use for this one. I really don't want to return two sets that are defective, again!

    I'll have to undoubtedly hold off for a while on this one. I'd love to get it though.

    No extras. Flipper discs.

    Extras sure would have been nice, but I've been waiting for this set since '97 and can't wait to relive my old battles. :D

    That's cheap for the boxed set. That's a must buy!! The 2 made for TV movies are on a double disc already, right?

    It's a flipper disc actually, one movie per side. Weird that just got that in the mail last evening from DDD! :)

    After much prodding from my friend, I think I'm going to have to buy this set and the 2 movies. I'm a major X-Files fan and he says if thats the case I'd be a fool to not buy this series.

    Buy it KC, but it NOW! Kolchak is an awesome TV series. Too bad it was so short lived. I'm so happy to have this fine series on DVD.
