As a kid growing up my favourite show on TV was Get Smart. I still have fond memories of spending Sunday afternoons at my grandparents house, eating a hot roast lunch (with Yorkshire Pudding!) and watching episodes of Get Smart on Channel 7 after World of Sport.
Anyway, it’s just been announced that Get Smart will be released on DVD in November. The bad news is that it won’t be available for general release in Australia (or elsewhere) until the end of 2007. Unfortunately the DVD has been released through Time-Life. Much like the release of Hogan’s Heroes and Dad’s Army, these DVDs will be available from Time-Life’s website, or I suppose by ringing their 1800 telephone number (if you call in the next 15 minutes we’ll throw in a set of steak knives!) for twelve months before they will be available in stores. From the information that I have gathered you have to buy all five seasons at once for the whopping price of US $200. (You can pay in 4 monthly installment if you use your credit card)
For more information on Get Smart, here’s the Get Smart wikipedia article
Would You Believe.com is perhaps the best Get Smart website out there.
Keep an eye on Time-Life’s Australian website for details on whether these Get Smart dvds will ever be available to us.
