Buy the Complete Set of New World Zorro DVDs

For New World Zorro, A&E plans to release individual sets of the four seasons and a complete set including all four of the seasons. I highly recommend that anyone who can afford to do so buy the complete set rather than the individual seasons. The complete set is currently priced at $89.99, and the individual seasons are currently priced at $26.99.

What often happens with DVD releases is that all of the seasons do not get released at once, and the later ones are the ones never released. In this case, all of the seasons are getting released at once. However...

We know that the first season will sell the best, because anyone who decides to buy the individual seasons will buy the first season before the others. It is very possible that the other individual seasons may not sell well enough to be kept on the market. Or even worse, the entire DVD release could get pulled pretty quickly if the sales are too low to keep in production. That could leave many people with nothing except the first season, if they go for the individual seasons one at a time.

New World Zorro is, after all, an obscure television series that most people do not remember. It is not likely going to have very high sales. Therefore, if possible, start getting your money saved up and buy the complete set all at once while it is available!

I'll definitely try to buy the complete series all at once, as I read that there will be exclusive bonus features included only on the box set. I love the 1990 series. That is, in my opinion, the best and definitive, screen incarnation of Zorro.

As long as Michael Tylo who played Alcalde Luis Ramone'is in it. I know he did season 1 & 2.What about 3 and 4?

Jennifer said...

Michael Tylo was only in the first two seasons. For people who are only interested in Michael Tylo, then certainly only the first two seasons are of interest.

My comments here are directed towards people who would want to have all four seasons. I feel that those people are better off buying the complete set all at one.

Michael Tylo fans only need the first two seasons. Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. fans only need the first season. Henry Darrow fans need seasons two through four. J.G. Hertzler fans need seasons three and four. If your interest is only in a certain actor, then you would not necessarily want to buy the complete set.

Does anyone know if any bonus features and extras come with individual seasons or only with the complete set?

Jennifer said...

There is a rumor that the complete set will be the only one with the extras. However, we do not know yet. I wish the listings at Amazon would get updated with specific details so that we would know for certain.

Danny said...

According to Wikipedia, the complete set will feature all of the extras on the season sets, plus an exclusive bonus disc featuring extras only available on this set, including the aforementioned unaired series pilot starring Patrick James.

Jennifer said...

The Wikipedia information is copied from here and elsewhere. If you scroll to down under the table to the two mentioned sources, they are this blog and TVShowsonDVD.com.

I am the one who got the information about Patrick James from Daryl, but we have not received confirmation that the Patrick James version is in fact going to be on the set. Daryl is no longer certain of whether that pilot will be on the set.

The TVShowsonDVD page is where the information about the complete set having everything originated, but as I have already stated, we have no confirmation of whether that is in fact true. Once again, as I already stated, we will not know for certain until the Amazon listings get updated with specific details.

Please be aware that all of the Wikipedia information is being placed there after somebody reads it in this blog, in the New World Zorro group, or on the TVShowsonDVD site. The Wikipedia page is not going to be the first place where new information appears. It is going to come from one of the other sources first.

I have to agree with Jennifer,but i don't necessairly need the whole series to be happy.I loved learning about this series through michaeltyloonline.com and that's how i came to want to get the show. I plan to buy only seasons 1 & 2 since i was told he was in those shows only.

Hello, Zorro fans!

This is great news! Your efforts have paid off and I'm so happy that it's finally going to happen. It'll be the perfect birthday present for my brother, assuming that the release date is accurate.

Jennifer, I was curious to know if you knew anything about whether the makers of the complete DVD set prefer that we order from Amazon or from A&E. On Amazon, you can pre-order the set now -- I'd do that but I can wait if it's better to order directly from the makers so that they get more of the sales proceeds. What do you think?

Thanks and keep us all informed.

Jennifer said...

I have not heard anything about profit and whether it matters where we buy the set. I am assuming that it does not matter, even though you bring up a good point.

I'm waiting until around a week before the set is released to make my order. I have had problems with early pre-orders on Amazon.com in the past, so I feel it is best to wait until just before the release. I once ordered something a few months before it was released, and Amazon never shipped it. I had to cancel and reorder later. So, I wish to avoid that potential problem.

They have pictures of the cover art for the complete series and each individual season posted on Zorro.com and Amazon.com. Have a look.

Jennifer said...

Interesting... thanks for mentioning the cover art picture! I've been checking at least every other day for the cover art and had been wondering what form it would take.

Danny said...

Zorro Productions Inc has done it, crafting a terrific cover art for the classic series. Kudos to them for asking for the fans' input and exceeding their expectations in terms of cover art & bonus features.

Jennifer said...

Follow the links in this message to purchase the DVDs. Even though you are in Italy, you should be able to have the DVDs shipped to you.

However, the DVDs are Region 1 only, so you will have to have a machine that will play Region 1 DVDs.
