News Roundup: Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill and 90210

23 08 2010
  • TV Guide Magazine has a few Gossip Girl spoilers.
  • Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl) is on the cover of Nylon’s September issue.
  • Interview has an, um, interview with Taylor Momsen (Jenny, Gossip Girl).
  • Everly, featuring Bethany Joy Galeotti (Haley, One Tree Hill), has a new website.
  • Austin Nichols (Julian, One Tree Hill) has started a humorous (parody?) Twitter account under the name @SensitiveJulian.
  • Tristan Wilds (Dixon, 90210) tweeted that he started a blog.
  • The Beverly Hills 90210 Season 10 DVD will be released November 2. TVShowsOnDVD.com has a look at the cover art and reports that The Final Goodbye will be included as a bonus feature. (The set itself is being marketed as The Final Season, as opposed to The Tenth Season.) While I am happy that there are special features again (it’s the first time since season 4), I wonder if its inclusion and the timing of the release means there won’t be a complete series set. They are not only missing out on the opportunity to market it for Christmas, but to have it come out on a year of double anniversaries for the show. But I suppose anything is possible own the road. And at first I was thrilled to see what I thought was an authentic cover photo – as in, it was an original group photo with all of the tenth season’s regular cast members; no one was photoshopped in or out like in the past and the photo wasn’t otherwise altered in any way- but I doubled-checked and a Google search of the original photo shows they did make some subtle, needless changes. It’s pretty amazing: ten seasons, ten DVDs and not one with appropriate and/or unedited cover art! The photo on the top left also looks suspicious but I can’t say for sure without seeing the cover first-hand. Also, it’s interesting that there’s three pictures of Tori Spelling (Donna) on the front and another on the side. I mean, are two solo pics necessary? Really? Also, love how Vincent Young (Noah) went from being left off the covers for seasons 8 and 9, but gets two pictures on this one. Sigh.

Official Announcement for Dawson’s Creek: The Complete Series

1 09 2009

Last week TVShowsonDVD.com reported that the Dawson’s Creek Complete Series set would be released November 10.  As expected, they were right–and now they have more information to share.

This screenshot comes DIRECTLY from their Web site. For the full story, click the link.

DC news 3

Some thoughts…

1. Interesting choice not include Kerr Smith (Jack) on the cover art and what we can see from the inside art.  Yes, there was a core four but it really became a core five for a lot of viewers.  What do you think?

2. A little disappointing but not surprising that most of the extras aren’t new.

3. The new ones seem interesting–but we all know you can play Dawson’s Creek trivia anytime with me!

4. Not clear if the episodes have the original music, or the edited soundtracks that appear on the individual season sets.

5. Not clear if the “bonus CD” is a new compilation or one of the previously released CDs.

6. Interesting that it mentions an official Web site.  I assume they are referring to DawsonsCreek.com, but I don’t see how that counts as an extra.  It also hasn’t been updated in a few years.

7. Not clear if *all* the deleted scenes from prior sets, including the extended version of the series finale, will be included.  If it’s not, I highly suggest you still purchase that disc separately.

8. I wonder if any of the cast will comment on the set as we near the release date.  I’m sure someone from somewhere will ask them about.

10. I CAN’T WAIT TO BUY IT!





Random Thought

28 07 2009

Look at the recent release dates for the Beverly Hills 90210 DVDs:

Season 4: April 29, 2008

Season 5: July 29, 2008

Season 6: November 25, 32008

Season 7: April 7, 2009

According to the past schedule, then, we’re due for another release but it’s way too late for the summer cycle.  They could be going right to fall, but they usually announce the set a few months before it officially goes on sale.  For instance, the season 7 DVD was announced in January–4 months before it was released.

By that calculation, we should be hearing about season 8 any day now, especially since we haven’t already.  And my anxiousness is getting the best of me.

I keep checking my number one source, TVShowsOnDVD.com, but they’ve been silent.  And if they don’t have anything, then there’s nothing.

Which makes me a) sad and b) nervous.  It took a long time for season 1 to come out–the pilot was released separately a whole 2 years before and a whopping 4 years after the series ended–particularly because of struggles with rights to the show and the music.  I can only fear that the same is what’s holding up the last 3 seasons and I can only hope that it won’t hold them up for good.

Another theory is that they’re planning a package release for the last 3 or working on a complete series collection, a la Dawson’s Creek.  But they’d make a lot more money first releasing them individually and then enticing fans to buy the series (I know I would).

Of course, they could just be taking their sweet time and maybe working on some awesome extras (especially since the last few sets didn’t have any).  They could also be waiting for the 19th or 20th anniversaries of the show’s premiere, coming up in October of this year and next.  It’s also a lot harder when you don’t have a new season to promote, an advantage shared by One Tree Hill and Gossip Girl.

So what’s going on?  I have no idea and it’s killing me!
