It took a few months but finally the cover art has been finalized and can we present it to you. The release date of has been pushed back a few weeks to August 26, 2014, so a little over a month later than first announced. You can already pre-order it on Amazon.com but remember this will most likely be a region 1 DVD Release. See full post below:
You Only Live Twice. NOW AND AGAIN: The Complete Series is available for the first time on DVD! Starring Eric Close, Margaret Colin, Heather Matarazzo, and Dennis Haysbert as Dr. Theo Morris, this action-packed 22-episode, 5-disc set is truly an experience not to miss. When insurance salesman and family man Michael Wiseman is killed in a subway accident, the U.S. government preserves his brain and puts it into a new, genetically bio-engineered body that's young, attractive, and can do anything a superhero can do.
But as a top-secret experiment and weapon, the new and improved Michael (Close) can never let his wife Lisa (Colin) or daughter Heather (Matarazzo) know his true identity. With the strict but brilliant Dr. Morris as his mentor, Michael takes on deadly terrorists, corrupt agents, killer bugs, and an extremely dangerous international criminal known as "the Egg Man." Michael can do anything...except stay away from the family that he loves.
We told you back in March that this was coming, and now CBS DVD and Paramount Home Entertainment has formally announced the DVD release of what they are titling as "Now and Again - The DVD Edition." Originally reported as a June item, the studio has finalized a street date of August 26th for this long-awaited show. In addition to the episodes, you'll also get these special featurettes:
March 20, 2014
In September 1999, the ABC network debuted a show called Once and Again (two of that show's three seasons have been put out on DVD). Three days after that romantic drama's first episode was broadcast, the CBS network premiered a science fiction thriller program with a very similar name, Now and Again. This program starred Eric Close (Nashville, Dark Skies), Dennis Haysbert (24, The Unit), Margaret Colin ("Eleanor Waldorf" in Gossip Girl), plus recurring appearances by John Goodman (Roseanne, Alpha House). The show ran for a single season of 22 hour-long episodes, before being cancelled for ratings that didn't justify the high cost of each episode.
There has been no formal announcement yet by CBS DVD or Paramount Home Entertainment, but a new Amazon pre-order listing shows that Now and Again - The Complete Series is coming to DVD on July 22nd. The listing gives a $39.98 SRP list price (but you can lock in a copy for yourself, at discounted prices, right away!). No other information is there yet, nor do they have any cover art. Since the item isn't officially scheduled by the studio at this time, then you might want to consider this info to be non-finalized, and possibly subject to change. But that's what we know so far! Our thanks to one of our long-time readers, "Matt," for spotting this item and tipping us off. Stay tuned for updates, as further developments occur!
Unfortunately, for now, this is only the case for North America, there's only a slim chance, I think, this is also going to be released in other parts of the world. So you will need a DVD/Blu-Ray player which is capable of playing region one coded DVD's.
