I love some that some of these are either getting the DVD treatment, or getting a better DVD release. I think it's good to both have the used VHS out there for collectors and nostalgists, but to also try to get these on the best format possible with all the goodies possible. Nothing wrong with having it both ways.

I completely agree, DTV-C. I'm not big on the idea of constant new technology and the phasing out of old ones, but I do like when the exist harmoniously, which sadly isn't often. Tracking down an old VHS copy (which I do from time to time) is a good thing, but watching something in a new spiffy transfer with extras is also a thrill.

Lots of really good stuff coming out in the next month. DvD's always break the bank around Halloween time. I might have to settle for that VAMP disc, I want the Arrow one but it's out of my price range at the moment.
