When this DVD comes out "I wanna dip my BALLS in it!"

Good to see they're making progress with this.

I'll believe it when I hear a release date from MTV. How many updates have been posted to their website in the past few years?

Thanks to the TVShowsonDVD website, we can resurrect this thread! Looks like The State is actually going to be released this time, according to a trailer posted on David Wain's MySpace. Here's a link to the blog entry:

blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=35163686&blogID=289425020

If you watch the trailer, there's a picture of the box art... and seeing some of those sketches made me love the show all over again.

And reading the comments, one of the commenters mentioned just having finished the audio masters.

A guy can hope, right? After all the false starts, I'm still pretty guarded.

I bet that trailer winds up on the soon-to-be-released "South Park" season 10 and "Upright Citizens Brigade" season 2 DVD's.
Don't you ever, EVER compare me to "Family Guy," you hear me Kyle? Compare me to "Family Guy" again and so help me, I will kill you where you stand!

Do you have any idea what it's like? Everywhere I go: "Hey Cartman you must like 'Family Guy,' right?" "Hey, your sense of humor reminds me of...

Just went to the State's site, and this message was up there, dated 11/1/07:

* * * NOTE (Nov 1, 2007): We are sorry to report The State DVD is now NOT being released this fall. We worked closely with MTV to make a great DVD set with lots of extras for the show, and the DVDs are completed, but they has chosen not to release the set at this time. We don't know why.

It's the worst knowing that the DVDs are out there and done, but that we can't get them. I hope it'll come out soon...

That's odd.

I know an ad on another DVD is no guarantee that it will be released but that trailer was eventually officially released on the "Sarah Silverman Program" DVD.

I think it'll still come out. We all knew it wasn't coming out this fall a long time ago.
