Yeah, just the boxset of every season and the two tv-movies in Blu-ray, finally.

I think the poison that was used was applied to this knife, passed to the mutton when it was cut and then activated by the wine. - MacGyver.
Sometimes you just have to die a little inside to be reborn and rise again as a stronger and wiser version of you.
It's better to be a little sad than to be fake content.

There's been no mention of the movies being remastered yet. Just that all 7 seasons will be.

Maybe the movies will come later as separate Blu-ray releases...

You can bet they will be looking to maximize profits from this.

I'd be happy if they'd just release the movies in Germany for once... tongue.gif

They're not available on DVD in Germany despite airing on German TV back then.

I'd be okay with a TOS MacGyver and Reboot MacGyver bundles.  Like get season 1 as a pack, season 2 as a pack... so on and so on.

I think i will have to draw the line there. Keep them separate. Please. biggrin.gif

Well, I'm simply thinking of options. I doubt they'll do any sort of bundles like that, though I wouldn't be opposed to it. Most likely you'll be able to buy them separately, and if they have a pack, it's just a separate option.

It was just a thought because I was thinking of getting both reboot seasons for a friend anyway. Well, maybe... XD

They will probably keep them separate no doubt. I will undoubtedly only buy the originals though.

Season 1 coming October 30 to Blu-ray in the US:
https://www.facebook.com/tvshowsondvd/posts...156362108331063

Release for November has already been confirmed for France, too, so it's probably a world-wide release at about the same time.

No word on any bonus features yet, though.

you can argue releasing each season individually is a way to make more money, but they might just be testing the waters how good it will do... also, it sure spreads the coverage for Original MacGyver over many more months.

and they can use the photos for the MacGyver Manual Book. maybe another reason why its release date was put back? they could even add some ad for it, e.g. a page with "out now" and photos of the new cover art.

so... Funko and BluRay withing a few weeks of each other. then maybe the book next year, along with maybe S2 around Christmas?

not to forget the Season 2 Reboot DVD release 10 days before the Season 3 premiere on TV. that's A LOT of MacGyver stuff within a few months.

for once I have to say: not bad, CBS thumbup.gif

|I agree. There certainly has been a lot of MacGyver releases planned. All of which are great.

Dang... look at the pricetag! That's REALLY expensive for a Blu-ray. I mean, I wasn't expecting it to be cheap, but $56 for just one season is a bit... pricy. I compared it to other season 1 popular shows, and those are more like $20-$30 (which I was expecting). I can understand that it might be a tad more since they did have to convert it from SD, but... that almost double for a typical Blu-ray season.

I bought every season for almost that price. 50 euros at least. I think it's worth it.

It's a bit pricey, but I'm not sure that price will stay. In my experience, most prices for DVDs and BluRays on Amazon drop a bit even before the release date.

Same is happening right now with the Reboot S2 DVD: It was listed as 29.98 at first - now it has already dropped down to 19.96 and it's still on pre-sale (the release date is for September 18).

Let's hope same will be happening here. On the other hand, it might be worth to wait a few months after the release date. They might have some cheaper prices or Sale Days on Amazon before Christmas.

They need to drop it at least $15 more for it to be reasonable. XD

That still seems quite high.

other shows like Lethal Weapon , TBBT are early 30's while big shows like Star Trek and Walking Dead are early 40's so I'm not sure it's going to sell very well if they don't drop the price further.

2 days before the release of the Reboot Season 2 DVD, they dropped the price down to half the initially listed price, so maybe we'll get lucky here as well...
