I started working on ROX because of a passion. This show is one of the few things that let me get away from the craziness and feel free from the uncertainty that was my life.
When I “rediscovered” the show in my late teens, I began going to the MCPL and getting my hands on as many episodes as possible. VHS tapes were extremely cheap at the time, and I thought I would eventually do something with that collection. While I’m unsure of how many episodes I currently have, it has to total more than 50. Little did I know that an infamous hurricane would run me into a crash course with the shows’ producers.
I had just built an amazing computer at the time, and I wanted to condense all of those VHS tapes taking up space in our apartment. So I made a DVD set of the first 6 episodes for the shows’ creators. This would start an ongoing collaboration to stabilize the archives of this show.
Four years later, I seemed to be at an impasse. After buying a home, going to school and having a child on the way, I didn’t seem to have any free time to even relax – let alone work on a “hobby.” In that time, we had re-worked my original creation into a product that many fans have purchased and enjoy to this day. I had also done hundreds of hours of work to try to make some damaged episodes of the show up to par.
I have begun work on authoring the DVDs that will become the season one set. Preliminary results show it will be an 8 disc set. Due to packaging constraints, it will be split into two volumes; sold as one. I’m not sure on the price yet, but I expect it to be in the $30 range. With 25 episodes, and a few extras – this was a much larger undertaking than the 7 episodes of season zero.
With season zero, I was wet behind the ears. For season one, I’ve sharpened my skills.
I hope to have all of the preliminary work done within a few weeks. I’m sure editor b will make some announcement when the time is right.
A special thanks goes out to “roxfan” who sent me a few episodes on DVD. Without the kind generosity of people like him, this project would still be stalled. You will be the first to receive a set. I just need to find your address. If you read this, leave me a comment and I will get back with you.
These sets are a completely non-profit project. All charges are for cases, discs, ink, inserts and all other associated costs. The biggest of the costs being ink. We might setup a bartering system, to help eliminate costs.
