Of course everyone who frequents the Raven will buy them, because we're die-hard Indy fans. Indiana Jones is one of the most successful film franchises of all time, though, because every average Joe loves Indiana Jones, even if he's not a die-harder.
No male on earth doesn't like Indiana Jones, and I'd speculate that most women like the films just as much. These are people who'd buy the Indy trilogy, but wouldn't really get into the whole YIJC series. No way possible that the YIJC set could come close to matching the original trilogy in sales. No way. Period.
I don't think they'll be as popular as the film trilogy, but who knows? Perhaps it depends on how they organise the release. Most genre series like Star Trek, Buffy etc come in only in whole season box sets, which are usually very expensive overall, even if good value. I can never afford to buy these-I wish they'd also release individual DVDs with two or three eps on each one, so people could just own a few of their particular favourites.
I'm out of touch. Is there any information available about this DVD set? Content? Is there a timetable for its release yet?
What I Want is the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, Complete and Intact. What I Don't want is a DVD transfer of the re-edited mess that was the Young Indy VHS set.
If it's the YIJC, I'll buy it on day one. If it's the latter, I might never buy it.
I want the Original format. Episodic. Original title sequence. Old Indy bookends and narration. The real show, the way it was. The VHS re-edits, redubs, and attempts at new shoehorned bridging material simply sucked.

The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles was hardly crap.
The series was well made. It had good directors, good writers, and (mostly) good actors. The sets and locations really brought the time period and places to life. The music was great and the production values still surpass most shows made today, 12 years later.
You can say "I didn't like it", "It wasn't the real Indiana Jones", etc. But you can't say it was crap.
I don't like new version of series, where one episode contain two episodes without old Indy scenes. When you watch second half of episode, you forget what was the first half about. I hope that DVD will include original YIJC, and not the AIJ.
And, of course, DVD must contain one bonus disk with interviews, documentary and other good stuff.
