Hello World!

On Sunday, after almost a year of waiting, I was able to pick up Earth: Final Conflict video volumes 1.7 and 1.8.

My sorry tale started about June last year, when the first two videos from the series appeared on Aussie shores. The premiere was a great start, and I wanted more. As soon as volumes 3,4,5 and 6 were released, they were on my bookshelf. But then they stopped being released.

Suddenly, earlier this year, the videos reappeared, but with flashier covers, at a more expensive price and starting from the beginning again. My guess is that Universal didn't realise they would sell well, so they scrapped the first lot and brought out videos with nicer covers and bumped up the price by $5.

Finally, the new videos caught up to where I had been left hanging, after the excellent episode, 'Sandoval's Run.' After picking up volumes 1.7 and 1.8, I watched them in one straight sitting - my starvation had ended! Thank goodness volume 1.9 isn't too far away.
