Top Chef DVD

catrn Sep 6, 2009 07:00 PM

So, they are releasing Top Chef Season 5 on DVD. How about seasons 1-4? Especially season 1. I would love to see that again.

      I know, but this has "never before seen footage/interviews" and also recipes.

          Sorry, should have given more info. I am one of those fans who could watch this over and over, so I will definately be getting this. With all the hours of footage they tape, I am hoping to see some new video. Still, I would like it if they would start with season 1

            You can buy it on Amazon Video on Demand. I've been playing Top Chef 1 back to remember the places they went in SF. No specials though.

        I don't believe those seasons have ever been released on DVD. Netflix only has them as "saved" selections, which is the designation they use for DVDs that are not yet out.

          wow, i just checked and you're right. that's bizarre. i do know you can download all the seasons from iTunes, but it's beyond me why they haven't bothered to release them on DVD yet, since people clearly want to keep them, and are willing to pay a premium for the "extras" that DVDs usually include.

            Yeah, I've got them all on my netflix list, but they only show up in the saved section. Considering how well they do with Project Runway DVDs, it only makes sense to try at least one season of this show too.

          I have never seen seasons 1-4 on sale anywhere, and I'd love to see season 1 again - i want to see the very first episode - they never rerun that one. There was a crazy cheftestant that was cut episode 1.

            Oh man - the Irish guy who backtalked Hubert Keller! Ken. He was a piece of work!

              Ah yes Ken. I loved him talking, yelling, and making noises while cooking. You are right, they never replay the first few episodes. I would love to be able to watch them again. Looks like Bravo has season 5 on sale now. Amazon has a release date of Oct. 20. Hopefully this well do well and they will release other seasons.

                Just to reiterate my previous post, you can download the first season on Amazon Video on Demand for $0.99 an episode or $10 for the whole season.
