Awesome! Love them both. Their releases for these series so far have been technically great!

**Admins, the links are to the wrong seasons of these series.

To whom it may concern,

That is great news for Murdoch Mysteries season 5's release. However I still don't understand why season 2 is not planned in Blu-Ray (all the other seasons are available and on DVD all of them exist already). I'm seriously considering buying the DVD because Acorn has replied to me that they have no idea when it will be released; I think it is a shame why having all the other seasons in Blu-ray except this one, it doesn't make sense to me. Anyway if you have any kind of information that would be highly appreciated.

Sincerely

There's no firm information, but I've been informed that Blu-rays for Murdoch Season 2 are a likely bet for 2013. Acorn is certainly aware that fans are impatient for a complete set.

I wish they'd sort out the early Midsomer DVDs if they don't do Blu-Rays for them, but I guess releasing them in a 14:9, non-anamorphic aspect ratio means I actually have a use for the Zoom button on my BR player though

@ Acorn Media and @MichaelR

REALLY that is great, so far I have only seen the news about season 5 but if you release season 2 as well at the same time that would be great!!!!! Do you know when we can expect an official confirmation? Thanks again for taking the time to answer my request!!!
