    BCI Eclipse presents... Prince Valiant on DVD

    Check out http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/newsitem.cfm?NewsID=5479 for information on one of BCI Eclipse's upcoming DVD releases, The Legend of Prince Valiant. Although there is a factual inaccuracy in the press release (the first two Prince Valiant episodes have been available to buy for a couple of years here in the UK on a budget price DVD) it's still great news.

    It's mentioned that this is the first in a full line of releases which presumably will include Filmation's Flash Gordon and Defenders of the Earth.

    Gosh, I don't remember this series at all. Was it any good?

    BTW: There was mention of the Flash Gordan series recently on tvguide.com

    FLASH NEWS: BCI Eclipse, the company behind the He-Man reissues, has nabbed DVD rights to liberate 20 series from the vaults of Filmation, the creators of Fat Albert. Fans of such animated fare as Groovy Ghoulies and Defenders of the Earth, or of live-action adventures such as Jason of Star Command and The Secret of Isis, will be stoked to hear that She-Ra: Princess of Power and The New Adventures of Flash Gordon will arrive in July and Ghostbusters by late 2006. The back-catalog blitz will continue through summer 2007.

    I remember hearing something about this show when it debuted, but I don't think I ever watched an episode. Looks like it has a strong voice cast. A Prince Valiant press release, but no SOTS?

    I sure hope so, I've waited a long time for those two shows to hit DVD. I own the foreign box set releases, but will gladly get rid of them if BCI makes box sets. The more shows BCI puts out the more money of mine they will get. As for DVD TV shows out on DVD I'd say they are clearly #1 when it comes to giving the fans a great product to own.

    I'm already on the hook for;

    Filmations Ghostbusters (TBA)

    He Man & the Masters of the Universe

    New Adventures of He Man

    She Ra & the Princess of Power

    I thought they already did announce that SOTS would be part of the Best of She-Ra collection that is to premiere at the Comicon?

    Chris here...

    It's many, many years since I last saw Prince Valiant, I can't remember much about it. I know when I first saw it I didn't care for it, but it gradually grew on me - if I'm honest I doubt if I'll pick this set up, but I'm eager to hear about BCI releasing Defenders of the Earth! I shall eventually pick up the complete series of Flash Gordon that's on UK DVD, but I've actually held off buying the Australian DotE DVD set until I see what BCI can come up with!

    Take care...

    YAY! This makes me SO happy! I loved this series when it first aired, and my grandmother recorded almost every episode for me. The voice talent was very good and the episodes were quite well done. Alan Oppenheimer did the voice of Merlin, so there's a little He-Man connection right there.

    If it's the complete series, why does it also say volume 1?

    Or is it box 1 of the set? If that's the case I think they should ditch the 'complete series' part because it sounds a little misleading.
    At this point I just HOPE for Dylamug and Hunga the Harpy!

    Because it'll come out in 2 sets, and since it really didn't have seasons, it'll just be "The Complete Series" Volumes 1 and 2.

    I remember this series. Wasn't a major fan of it but didn't dislike it either. Still, wouldn't go watching on DVD. On the other hand, if it repeated on TV...

    Just bought it today, loved this show and would always watch it at night when it was on Family channel or whatever itwas called then.

    I finally got around to getting these sets (before it comes too difficult to find on the secondary market for a cheap price). It was a blind buy, but I've enjoyed the episodes I've watched so far. I'm a sucker for medieval times type stuff. I would have liked to see some dragons or Merlin to use his magic more, but I guess those were part of some conditions that the Family Channel asked for. I thought sidekicks Arn and Rowanne were good editions. The show explores some adult themes and there are character deaths. The comics never ran in my local newspaper.

    A few of the episodes seem it particularly bad shape on the Vol. 1 set, but I can't quite tell if it is the masters or the disc's fault (as it has quite a few scratches). The Dawn of Darkness and one or two others on the second disc of Vol. 1 seem in bad shape. I'm guessing the show wasn't remastered. I'm not a fan of the cases. They are brittle and hard to get the discs out. The discs are double sided and overlapping plus there is a flipper for discs 2 and 3 in there that bangs together against discs 4 and 5, so you are bound to get some scratches between all those things.
