Gene Roddenberry‘s classic series The Lieutenant will be released tomorrow.

 

The show, consisting of twenty-nine episodes filmed in 1963 and 1964, has been restored and will be “accompanied by an unseen theatrical iteration of the show.”

 

In The Lieutenant, “Gary Lockwood (2001: A Space Odyssey) plays young and easy-going Marine Corps Lieutenant William Rice, who commands a colorful crew of raw recruits. Rice soon finds his missions consist of dodging political grenades, searching to destroy dissent within the ranks, and mounting reconnaissance missions to obtain young ladies’ phone numbers. The series features guest star appearances from Star Trek legends Leonard Nimoy, Nichelle Nichols, and Majel Barrett, and Six Million Dollar Man star Richard Anderson.”

 

The series will be released as two “manufacture-on-demand” sets (Part 1 and Part 2), meaning that they will be available only to U.S. customers at WBshop.com. It is expected that the DVD sets will become available later from Amazon CreateSpace MOD for fans worldwide.

 

The Lieutenant Part 1 and Part 2 will sell for $39.95 each.

They have got to be smoking some crazy stuff at Warner Brothers. The worst part is that there are fans who will pay $80 for a 1 season television show burned on DVD-Rs that have a limited lifetime. DVD-Rs are the same thing you burn on your computer and do not last "forever" like a regular production DVD. This is the same BS that they pulled with Genesis II, Planet Earth, and Strange New World. The only good thing is that they did restore The Lieutenant unlike the others that are produced not restored using the prints they had available.
