Now, if you prefer your Zone complete and uncut, in pristine high definition and supplemented with extensive bonus features, treat yourself to Image Entertainment's wonderful blu-ray treatment of the series (no, I'm not gonna stop harping on this until every one of you takes the plunge).  The complete series is available as I type this for $230.95 from Amazon, which is a helluva deal.

I've emailed Image Entertainment to see if early purchasers of the individual season sets (like yours truly) can possible get that gorgeous outer box, perhaps for a nominal fee.  I'll report back after they've (hopefully) answered.

Happy 4th, folks!

Again its a shame you don't get ME-TV in Portland, Craig. Their prints are from the Definitive Edition masters and are largely uncut (outside of omitting the Serling previews and show billboards at the end).

Actually, they do. It's KATU, Channel 2.2. I watch their L.A. affiliate, and the half hours seem uncut, but I noticed the hours were cut. I should time some episodes and see how long they actually are. I thought that maybe they were sped up, but the music sounds the same.

BifBangPow was showing off their stuff at SDCC and there are a couple of new things. There's a Bernardi bobble head and a prototype of the Cyclops figure.
