WE'RE ALMOST THERE....from Barney via Carole

Dear All

Barney is currently in Seattle, recuperating from his second shoulder replacement, and attending the USC Washington football game (USC won).  It's difficult to type with one's arm in a sling so he has asked me to let you know the distributor has published the "official" press release for the Cagney & Lacey DVDs -- both the LIMITED EDITION and the boxed set of 119 episodes. 

The LIMITED EDITION can only be purchased through the Cagney & Lacey official website and the order form will be posted on the site no later than Tuesday, October 16th (we believe).  It will give you all the information you need re purchase price and shipping,  but the boxed set is available for pre-order on-line through Amazon USA and Amazon Canada.

Both women will be doing radio, television and print interviews and we will keep you up to date on www.cagneyandlacey.com.

It has been a long struggle, but well worth it!   Best wishes to family and friends with special thanks from me to Jackie Danson, Gail Reese, Ann Wilson, John V. Fahey and the fan clubs.

Enjoy with all good wishes from us all.

hope these boxes will be sent overseas. Not only in North America.

Little Sis Parker said...

The cost of the boxed set at Amazon is $189.99. That is $50.00 dollars more than what is stated here and in the "official press release". Just wanting to know why such a big discrepancy? Is the limited edition going to be a lot more than stated, also? I still plan on ordering it but it helps to know how much money I really need to put aside.

Thanks for updating all of us again,Carole. Tell Barney that I hope he heals quickly. I empathize with him. I am still trying to heal from rotor cuff surgery. It isn't being very cooperative.

Take care...

CagneyandLaceysWebSquad said...

Yes arrangements are being made to ship LIMITED EDITION "overseas."

CagneyandLaceysWebSquad said...

Sorry about the discrepancy in prices. All will be straightened out.

FabJay said...

Thanks C&LsWebSquad

Overseas shipping from the Official Website directly ?

Thanks a lot

As an european fan, I also excited.

Anonymous said...

Do you already know if any region 2 boxes are planned for europe in the furture?

Velicia said...

Thank you for the update, Carole. Feel better soon, Barney!

Jack MPLS said...

I wonder if we can pay via PayPal? The info states order form will be available... Any idea when the sets will start shipping for the Limited Edition Set?

CagneyandLaceysWebSquad said...

Sorry all,not sure about subsequent Region 2.

And yes, Pay Pal will be involved in payments for LIMITED EDITION.

I regret I cannot be more specific but hopefully ALL will be answered in due course.

Barney is pleased to read all your kind words about his surgery.

Thanks.

Carole

Beren said...

Best wishes for a speedy recovery Barney.

SarahC said...

I hope you feel better soon, Barney!
And thank you so much to everyone involved for all the hard work you've put in to getting these DVDs produced. I can't wait to watch Cagney and Lacey again!

olzki said...

So excited that the box set is nearly ready... gonna be refreshing into the early hours to make sure I do not miss out... Hope Barney is feeling better; one of the things I'm looking for the most in the box set is him reading his autobiog - should be excellent!

CagneyandLaceysWebSquad said...

To Olzki and others

I know Barney will be very pleased to learn that you are looking forward to his reading of the book. I know I'm biased, but he's really good at it!!!!! The stories come to life when he reads them. Thanks

Carole Smith

Sharon said...

The wait is kill'n me! LOL

R,Rodriguez said...

Get well soon Barney. I have the book and it's great. Can wait to hear his voice on the audio book.

lin said...

will the form be up today oct.. 16 before the debate I hope

CagneyandLaceysWebSquad said...

I am sorry for the delay in posting the order form but it is out of my hands. I promise all of you who have written will definitely be able to purchase the COLLECTOR'S LIMITED EDITION.

Thanks for writing.

Frank Florie said...

THank you for the update. I must have checked the website 10 times today waiting to fill out the order form! Haha. To be this close to FINALLY getting this series on DVD is unbelievable. I've been a fan since 1982 and I'm SOOOO tired of rewatching the series over the years on my VHS tapes which I mostly taped off Lifetime and TNN, where the episodes are heavily edited. Watching the series on DVD will be like watching new episodes since I have not seen them in their unedited form in DECADES!!! Thanky you Barney so much for persevering all these years.

Jaxi said...

Been checking the website from my phone all day. I want soo much to be able to get the limited edition.

Paula Lee said...

Don't worry I'm sure we can all hold on that bit longer. I'm really looking forward to watching the BFI event, since I missed out on tickets. Hope Barney is recovering well from his op and a big thanks again to everyone involved in the DVD battle. Your hard work is greatly appreciated.

SarahC said...

Not to worry, Carole, and thanks for keeping us updated :)
Anyway, it's like being a kid at Christmas waiting for Santa to come - the fevered anticipation is all part of the fun!

SheilaG said...

Get well soon, Barney! Thanks to everyone making this happen! Can't wait to see my all time favorite show in its entirety again. Is there any such thing as patiently anxious or anxiously patient lol

JarrInvaded said...

Can't wait!!!

Actually, just a thought, directed to the guys & girls running the site.

Is your site robust enough to handle the expected throng of would-be-buyers when the DVD set finally comes up for order?

Much bigger corporate sites (including government ones) have crashed in the past under the sheer weight of numbers trying to get through.

I'd hate to see it crack under the strain when people jump in to order a copy!

Manuel said...

can't wait for the limited edition - and hope I'll be able to order one as I will be traveling next week...

but more importantly: get well soon, Barney!

DebWhit said...

I'm having a hard time getting my comment to post. Just wanted to say I can't wait for this collector's set. I will be heartbroken if I somehow miss out. I'm driving my husband nuts. :)

This show is my favorite of all time...I loved the way the characters interacted and the series was so well-written and the acting so good, that you just felt you knew the characters and cared about their lives. I also appreciated the way they tackled tough subjects....way ahead of anybody else.

Barney, hope you get well soon and thanks to everybody involved in getting this done. I know it took great effort, but I hope you can see that the effort was worth it. There are a lot of grateful fans out here!

Daly & Gless said...

I cant explain how excited I am for these dvds!! I check the website every hour of the day and night so I dont miss the chance to get them!!. Get well soon Barney, I wish you a speedy recovery

Hilary Winn said...

I am so excited for the limited edition set!! I've been streaming reruns through Hulu (and before that Netflix) and it's just not the same as watching on DVD! I first caught the series in reruns on Lifetime when I was a teenager, and it's still one of my top two favorite shows (the other being Dr. Quinn which has a lot of former C&L actors on it!).

Hope Barney is doing better. I'm looking forward to hearing his reading of his book, since I really enjoyed reading it!

sandra said...

Get well soon Barney. Checking website constantly. Can't wait for the chance to own the best series ever to be made .

Sam O'Dell said...

Hi Barney/Carole,

firstly I trust you are feeling better?

Secondly, is there any idea of when the form will be up yet? The only reason I ask is because I keep checking the site all the time, including at work, much to the annoyance of my boss. I fear if this goes on much longer I will not have a job :-)

Best wishes to all, Sam

Craig H said...

The suspense is killing me! We’ve all been waiting for so many years I just hope we all get a copy. Checking in every chance I get!

CagneyandLaceysWebSquad said...

Sorry sorry sorry. Not to worry. Site will not fail. You will all get your collector's edition.

Very very soon!!!!!!!!

Lin F. said...

Thank you all for keeping us posted on when the coll. series form will be posted and the assurance to all of us that we will get a copy. With Barney's surgery, (hope he is doing well)
there is a lot on your plate.
Life others, I also am afraid I will miss the form...can only refresh so many times a day. So thank you again, for all you are doing.

Best series on Tv - EVER.
B

Velicia said...

Cannot wait for the collector's set to come out. Still waiting patiently. 'Hope your shoulder's mending well, Barney!

Anonymous said...

Congratulations to all involved in getting this project to bear fruit. It's great news.

I'm really hoping the price of $139 still holds. I've budgeted for that!!

Cheryl Larkin said...

You guys are awesome for fighting to make this happen and keeping us informed. Just wanted to let you know that. Whenever it is ready... ill be ready. Thank you for all your hard work.

Anonymous said...

Is the price of $139 still good?

I've tried to ask this a few times, but it never ends up getting approved, which is worrying...

Anonymous said...

Cant wait for this to come out, ive been looking forward to this for so now the wait is killing me. I was wondering will the limited edition set be shipped out of the states? I do have a region 1 dvd player and was just wondering could i get my hands on it?

CagneyandLaceysWebSquad said...

Sorry again for the delays. Yes the price of $139.99 plus shipping still holds. Yes, it is Region 1 and can be shipped to UK. The electronic gremlins are attacking the site. All will be fixed asap.

sandra said...

Will I be able to pay by visa without it going through paypal?

Barney Rosenzweig said...

Again, to all of you who are asking about the LIMITED EDITION,
the electronic gremlins from the post office are now acting up....but if you are planning to order through the web site you will get your Cagney & Lacey DVDs.

Sorry....

Carole

R,Rodriguez said...

Hi CagneyandLaceysWebSquad, I just ordered my dvd set from Visual Entertainment Inc. In the info it reads total 38 dvds. Is that correct and this set is it the limited edition since it read all episodes and movie and booklet. And if the set is the autographed set since it did not state that. Please let me know.

Neil Ryder said...

I've just tried to order the boxset but apparently VEI will not ship to the UK

CagneyandLaceysWebSquad said...

The 38 disc Limited Edition ordered from the VEI site does have all the extras.

I am sorry about the shipping information to UK. I will get on it immediately. Thank you.

Anonymous said...

is the set at VEI signed,includes Barney's Book, etc etc or do we need to order that through cagneyandlacey.com?

DebWhit said...

The VEI site is having problems, too. I'd like to know if it is feasible to try to be patient and wait for this Limited Edition set to be available here, or if it is safe to order from VEI's tumblr site. I will say that they have responded fairly quickly when someone posts of having a problem.
I don't know what to do. I really don't want to miss this.

Katrina said...

Have now bought and it will be coming to Australia :) VEI is having trouble with its website and has put up an alternative way. So looking forward to it! And amazed that VEI is selling the Limited Edition so cheaply. Much cheaper than Amazon is listing the basic boxset for.
Thank you so much for all the work to get this out!!!!!

Anonymous said...

I'm in the UK and I was able to order through the VEI site. I used PayPal to checkout, and was able to change the country using a drop down menu.

Shipping to the UK was CA$25, though I imagine we'll get some heavy import charges at this end too.

It's very exciting to know I can now just relax and look forward to it arriving!!!

Alan Bagwell said...

i've ordered the dvd's from VEI nad the shipping was canadian $25
