Pirates of Dark Water Finally Coming to DVD Tomorrow
Chunga lunga! Seventeen years after the premature cancelation of the dark, weird, and wonderful Pirates of Dark Water, all 21 episodes from the show’s original run will be coming to DVD as of tomorrow. We may not know what happened to the last five Treasures of Rule, but this is a decent consolation prize.
Warner Brothers is releasing Pirates of Darkwater – The Complete Series on … August 31st. Cost is $29.95 for a 4-disc set, which runs 462 minutes long for all 21 episodes of the show’s run in the early ’90s.
Pirates of Darkwater – The Complete Series will not be available in local stores, but instead is found exclusively at Warner’s online outlet, The WB Shop (WBshop.com), and is available to pre-order right now (when you land at the site, just use the “search” field in the upper right and start typing in “Pirates”; it will auto-fill in with the title for you to click on). You can pre-order your copy this minute, and it will ship out beginning next Tuesday.
The show’s super excellent opening animation:
