Even though it's getting a DVD release it is still a shame. As a general rule, unless it's an old tv series and/or shot on video, or a situation like when the negative no longer exists and an HD transfer isn't possible I don't purchase DVDs anymore. Where once I would have purchased Death Valley outright, now it only rates a rental. I love Shout, but they should get with the program, take a page out of Synapse's playbook and do DVD/blu ray combo pack releases.
