    Great idea-especially since it's coming out for $30 US. Wonder if they ship to Canada?

    Yes. How dare the creators of an immensely popular web series put out what looks to be a massive, well-put-together and wonderfully designed DVD set for their fans. The nerve.

    What does that have to do with anything? Why did you feel the need to say that? Some of us are happy about this release. Thanks for the useless comment. Perhaps I'll go into the LOTR: EE thread and say "Sucks that this is coming out."

    On another note, I'm happy this is coming out, and for such a great price. Hopefully it will mean more releases of some of their random cartoons.

    I wonder how the Easter eggs will be translated? In the flash cartoons, you can sometimes click on words or other parts of the screen to get a side-movie to play. You can invisible buttons on DVDs menus or video streams -- like the hidden hotspots in the flash cartoons -- but without a mouse arrow to guide you, it'd be hard to figure out what you're attempting to "click" on to see if there's an Easter egg there. They could just highlight all of the formerly-hidden Easter eggs spots like normal DVD buttons, I guess... but that wouldn't really make them Easter eggs.

    Whatever... as long as it's all there, I'll be handing my $30 over to the Bros.

    The easter eggs will probably be encoded just like eggs are on menus...

    They'll be invisible until you move your remote cursor around. I'm guessing that instead of your mouse telling you where eggs are, the egg becomes highlighted.

    It depends if DVD technology is used for good or for awesome. [​IMG]


    Geez, half the posts on Fark.com, when a SBE is linked on the front page, are like that!

    Excellent. I was hoping they'd release a DVD, though all the emails are still up and running. Must buy for me.

    From their shipping page - 'Orders from $20.00 to $44.99 - $7.00'.

    Even with the cdn dollar doing half-decent, $37US to get it up here is rough; wonder if any cdn retailers will pick it up...

    You can still watch them on the site though...

    Is this only sold online? If it is then I'm not buying, but I may pick it up if I saw it in the store.

    On a scale of 1 to Awesome, this is super-great! It's so cool, you don't even know how cool it is.

    I just hope I don't have to call Senor Cardgage Mortgage to finance buying this set.

    Ok, finally broke down and ordered this after watching the latest email. Sure I could download em all and make my own DVDs, but I'm lazy. Anyone got a copy of these yet?
