Release dates (tentative)
so, it is that time a year and the Season 10 DVD has come and gone... so, we move onward to a much reviled Season 11 contained within the Scully period.
I expect this one by XMas. (?)
In this thread discuss, speculate and bitch about the format, cover, episodes, commentaries, Mike Scully and the special features...
here are the episodes:
