  • Captain Power on DVD - Dec. 6, 2011

    Just found on the JMS Facebook page:

    J. MIchael Straczynski
    Appropos of nothing B5 related as April grows near...if there are any fans of the Captain Power show out there, you may want to keep an eye on Amazon for the next week or so. Just sayin'.
    Stay tuned...

    Jan

    PS: No, I'm pretty sure this won't count toward the Skywatch game.
    "As empathy spreads, civilization spreads. As empathy contracts, civilization contracts...as we're seeing now.

    Probably, the most heartbreaking ending of any kid's show ever.

      I've never seen it. Hoping that it might be a DVD release, given that JMS said to watch Amazon. Wouldn't it be great if there were JMS commentaries, too? Hoping...

        So far nothing seems to be up on Amazon but JMS posted this last night:

        The .com website only leads to a placeholder but http://www.captainpowerreturns.net/ has content.

          The link to the Captain Power facebook says "Captain Power returns in 2012." A DVD release of the show is mentioned on one of the pictures and another shows the "production headquarter for new Captain Power projects." There's also a current picture of Larry DiTillio and JMS together: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...type=1&theater

            Thanks. I've changed the thread title since it doesn't appear that the release is imminent.

                    I asked JMS about commentary and another poster asked about whether they'd still be interactive:

                    Originally posted by Fans of J. Michael Straczynski
                    Dunno the answer to the second part...to the first, there has been talk of commentaries, I know Larry's done one, and they mentioned it to me as well, so I'd be surprised if I didn't do at least one, probably A Summoning of Thunder or the season finale.

                              hm I should be able to make it there right after work! It says on their page that Jessica Steen may make an appearance as well if her schedule allows it.
