All nine episodes will be featured in their original fullscreen aspect ration and audio in Dolby Digital 5.1. No extras will be included, but the package does promise to come with a fairly comprehensive booklet in the case (a welcome feature in a time when DVD inserts are dissapearing fast).
Arriving on August 26th, the series will carry a suggested list price of $24.95.
