The additional Jason S. footage, broken down by Part, sounds incredible. Wasn’t “Behind the Red Curtain” already the title of the Beymer doc, though?
Is it safe to assume that the first people to preorder are guaranteed a copy, since it’s a limited edition? Not sure how that works, but I’m flashing back to the horror show of the “Limited Event Series” release, which wasn’t a limited edition, and many of us who preordered the thing on the first day possible had to wait weeks to get it.
I'd say, in theory, the first to order are the first to get served. In December 2017, I was lucky to have a friend who had the day off and picked up two of only three or four copies that Best Buy had. I had pre-ordered pretty early on Amazon, but judging by the fact that Amazon didn't ship it to me until a week later (I'm a Prime member who orders multiple new releases every week and this almost never happens to me), and that Best Buy only had a few copies, and that so many had trouble getting it, I think it was widely assumed to be a blunder on Showtime or the distributors' part, either not having enough copies prepared by release date or having not ordered/shipped enough to meet demand. I think this time they won't make that same mistake and the available box sets will be immediately available to those who ordered, so you won't have to worry about a shortage in that regard. 25,000 is a limited number for a popular show, but it's still a fairly large number for a cult series that has already been released a few times, so I don't know how quickly it will sell out. If anyone's worried, I'd just preorder and lock the order in with Amazon since they don't charge you until the item ships.
It's always exciting to have a new boxset, like you're watching it for the first time, and I'm so grateful for the effort that has been put into this one, from the new features to the 4K disc/tease. I too can't wait for the additional Jason S. stuff, and also hope it's just footage of cast and crew sans the narration.
