DVD Vol. 1 now on Amazon for pre-order

The Legion DVD (vol. 1) is up on Amazon. List price is $14.99, they've got it for $9.99.

The suckiest part of this is that you can get something like the JLU Season 2 DVD (which has the "Far From Home" episode, by the way) for $26.98 list price, and it has all 13 episodes in the set. If we get gouged on 3 volumes of 4-5 episodes each for all of season 1, that's $45 for 13 episodes.

(OK, I signed up for the Amazon Associates program. I get a whole 4% bonus if anyone orders through me. Woohoo! I better set up that Wish List, the money's going to be rolling in!)

Kind of annoyed that it's just the first four episodes of the 12 or 13-episode first season. I was hoping to get the whole first season on DVD, since I've not seen most of it.

This is the way WB always gouges its customers on DVD releases. The season set will follow, eventually, although it may take a year or more, like JL. I'll wait for that one.

Confirmation word: "fgeokr" - the swear word I said when I found out that it was only 4 episodes.

Well, Warner didn't do this with the BABYLON 5 stuff, but like you, I will wait for the full set on DVD when it comes out. Can't get a channel up here that shows them anyway, so I will live vicariously on what folks post in blogs and the like about the various episodes.

In the meantime, the new made-for-DVD B5 movie comes out the same time, so that's where my bucks will go. :)
