Call off the fan sites! Sci Fi's Invisible Man series from 2000 and a smattering of other long-lost shows are set for DVD.
I got the scoopage from TVShowsonDVD.com, a site that sometimes has news about TV shows on DVD.
Usually a sci-fi TV show or cartoon gets on DVD about half-past never. Here are some rare, recently announced exceptions.
Stargate: Infinity. Mid-2008. There was a Stargate cartoon. It came on Saturday mornings in 2002 on your local channels in between infomercials. There were 26 whole episodes. None of which had MacGyver, but look. Everything can't have MacGyver.
Terry Pratchett's Hogfather. March 4, 2008 The miniseries has Santa Claus' job getting taken by Death. It's a touching holiday tale. The best part: Live-action Discworld riding on backs of elephants on a giant turtle.
Space Ghost Coast to Coast. How about this? It's buyable and ownable right now, even as I type. There are 11 episodes, boasting "the most uncomfortable six and a half minutes you'll ever spend with Merrill Markoe."
He-Man (2002). Feb. 19, 2008. The modernly updated He-Man had fighting, fighting, and jumping high in the air then more fighting. Buyer beware: It also has Orko.
Invisible Man (2000). March 25, 2008. Whoo whoo! A well-beloved and right nicely cancelled Sci Fi Channel show. I never thunk I'd see the day.
Invisible Man. Feb. 26, 2008. I didn't even know this one existed. It's a 1958 invisible dude show from the U.K.
Sliders 4th Season. March 2008. I imagine there are Sliders fans out there who survived watching the fourth season. For them, a monument to their suffering.
The Starlost The 1973 TV series Harlan Ellison wrote for, and famously wrote about in his story "Somehow, I Don't Think We're In Kansas, Toto." will be watchable um, someday.
