    have lots of extras including audio commentaries by J Michael Straczynski. This is great news !!:D . Does anyone know any more details as I've checked some dvd sites and theres nothing

    HI,

    Sadly, you have been slightly misinformed. The "official" statement from J. Michael Strazynski and Warner Bros is this:

    - B5 will be released in Season-by-Season boxed sets on DVD.
    - Each DVD should contain three or four episodes per disc.
    - No specific date has been set, though Warners are AIMING for Autumn 2002 for the USA.
    - No other Regional release has even been considered at this time!
    - JMS is working on the extras and audio commentaries.
    - He is also personally sorting out the subtitling as well, to make sure of absolute accuracy in names, places, and that kind of thing.
    - Until another announcement is made, by Warners AND JMS together, all other announcements are purely speculative.

    Hope this helps.

    Pooch

    JMS is quoted elsewhere stating that the US will see a release this Fall. He makes a point of saying he is the first to confirm it's for real. All in all I'd say it'll happen for a Christmas shid sching cash in.
