MGM recall

Well, well, well.

The Home Theater Forum has just announced this:


MGM Home Entertainment will not be releasing the Ingmar Bergman DVD Collection on Tuesday, February 10 due to transfer problems on two of the discs.

If possible, please hold your reviews until we announce the new street date which we expect to be sometime in May. We will contact you once we have further information.

It’s amazing what a couple of websites and a discerning consumer base can do. As my friend Nick Wrigley put it, “Pre-internet, pre-DVD, [this boxset] could’ve been released as [cropped] VHS tapes and been distributed for years and years without any feedback… it’s amazing the level of communication that the Internet has brought.”
