Babylon 5 Fans!! Be afraid. If my recent attempts at trying to see who is selling the new direct to DVD movie – Babylon 5 The Lost Tales is any indication , we’ve got trouble.

The DVD has been out for over a week and in that time i’ve tried to locate it at stores in Toronto, Buffalo and San Francisco with little luck (yes i travel alot).

Best Buy stores in Toronto did not have any kind of special display and didn’t even have it on their new releases shelf. In fact i went to three different Best Buys and all of them said they never even got the movie.

Target in Buffalo didn’t have Lost Tales either.

In San Francisco, I went to the Virgin Megastore off 4th and could not find the DVD. After going to the counter to ask, they said they had 50 copies. None of which were on the shelf. Again the DVD was not on the new releases shelf and was not being promoted.

If Babylon 5 The Lost Tales is not adequately promoted at retail how does Warner Bros or JMS expect for it to be successful?

Is Amazon enough?

Currently Amazon.com has Lost Tales listed as #12 on its Top DVD listing. Personally i think that Amazon is a great outlet but its not enough. And if JMS is wondering why Lost Tales isn’t selling more all he needs to do is walk into his local DVD retailer to try and find the movie.
