    WOW!
    They just made one DVD customer VERY happy.
    I'm buy all seasons[​IMG]
    Since they are doing season sets, maybe a nice extra would be the funny Matt Stone Trey Parker intros

    I am extremely happy for South Park fans (I am not one of them). It's nice to see Warner releasing even more TV product in Season Box Sets... hopefully Babylon 5 is not far behind.

    Hopefully these sell great, and we see some things like Dr. Katz from them in the future.

    This is indeed rockin' good news. However, I have one concern. Those of us who have the original 6 DVD volumes (before the "best-of" crap started coming out) have all of Season 1 but only part of Season 2 - there were still 6 episodes of Season 2 they had not yet gotten to. If Warner really wants to get back fan support they should release those 6 eps as a "Volume 7" designed to fit with the previous releases. Then we can pick up on the season sets with Season 3. Of course, Seasons 1 & 2 should be released as sets for new buyers.
    OK, I know there's no way this will happen. The previous release owners will probably be forgotten... [​IMG] Guess I'd better get my Volumes 1-6 up on EBay before the flood starts! [​IMG]

    Oh, and the one extra that MUST be on the Season 1 set - the original "Spirit of Christmas" short that started it all!!

    Spirit of Christmas does belong on Season 1. Since these are [rant]not meant for children[/rant] this should not be a problem.

    I'm thrilled that Warner Brothers/Comedy Central has come around. I'll buy Season 1 to support the decision and to have a consistant set. Even if I already have access to discs 1-6, I don't mind having the episodes again.

    And I just bought seasons 1-4 from R4 a couple months ago! Maybe they'll put some extras on there to justify an R1 purchase. If the price is right, I might repurchase them anyway to show my gratitude to WB for finally seeing the light. [​IMG]

    About time. Maybe my purchase of Friends season 1 convinced them of the error of their ways. [​IMG]

    This is great news. Finally, one of my favorite series (besides the old stuff) is coming out on DVD, in season order.

    A Question regarding other 'Best Of' sets: Along the same time as the second Christmas compilation was released, there was to be a "Timmy!" comp as well. Was this ever released? Or is this what the "Insults to Injuries" set has become? I ask because I've receved a LOT of blank stares around town when I've asked for it (Sorry, I really like Timmy).

    GREAT news! I probably won't buy season one again (unless the set has new extras) but I'm definitely on board for season two forward.
    Now if only we could get a SE of Bigger, Longer and Uncut....
