    Buffy: Season 7 or... When will Fox stop spoiling the series?

    This was actually in response to The WB's preference for simplified, more self-contained stories, that wouldn't require a 2-minute or longer previously. I can't imagine that the DVD release had no influence on the show.

    Buffy: Season 7 or... When will Fox stop spoiling the series?

    I don't believe Mutant Enemy has a lot of say in the DVD's. Angel Executive Producer Tim Minear has said that he considers the "Previouslies" as part of the episodes, and has complained at about it (Check the Minearverse threads), and he's complained even more on...

    Buffy / Angel question

    My rankings (best-to-worst): Buffy: 2, 6, 1, 3, 5, 4, 7 Angel: 5, 3, 1, 2, 4 The only Mutant Enemy season that I feel is significantly below the others in quality is BtVS season 7.

    Roswell Season 2 (MERGED THREAD)

    The WB (which has no problem with airing shows in widescreen - e.g. Angel, Jack & Bobby, some eps of Everwood) aired the (first two seasons of) show only in 4:3, the way it was composed. But the show was shot with a 16:9 (a center extraction was used for the framing), so this is what ended up...

    Roswell Season 2 (MERGED THREAD)

    Roswell's first season was f*cking brilliant. The second season was still pretty good, although it suffered from too much network interference (and a horribly illogical climactic plot twist). And season 3 just suffered from bad writing, but it was still watchable for a few standout episodes...

    The Archive of Incomplete TV DVDs - Buyers Beware! (Updated 3/27/05)

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Four In the broadcast version of "Doomed," Forrest made a reference to a fantasy about Lara Croft. For the syndicated edits & DVD's, the line was dubbed over to refer to "the Easter Bunny."

    Aww, that sucks. Is that the only major problem you've found, at least so far?

    EEEEKKKKKKK! Show Me The Bunny!!!!!!!!!

    No. "The Simpsons" and "King of the Hill" are both animated in a 4:3 ratio. However, FOX does have a network mandate that all live-action shows be compatible for both 4:3 and 16:9, although the producer's often have their preferences. "Firefly" was filmed with the 16:9 widescreen ratio in...

    Angel season 4 DVD set (CONSOLIDATED THREAD)

    So, how badly have the "Previouslies" been chopped off for this set? Did they cut anything out of the actual episodes (as far as anyone can tell)? I read a review saying the missing Previouslies caused the episodes to start abruptly and in the middle of musical cues, but I kinda wanted to see...

    Angel Season 5

    Ryan, Gord,...Really? I thought this was the best season of any TV show I've ever seen. It may have been a subtle season, but the strengths were in the underlying themes and respecified metaphors. Plus, it made me get teary multiple times, which rarely happens to me for most shows. And, yeah...

    The Archive of Incomplete TV DVDs - Buyers Beware! (Updated 3/27/05)

    This is why I haven't bought these sets yet, although I'll probably break down and buy them eventually. But does the season one have the "Previouslies?" And what about the "In every generation..." prologues? Also, I've heard that one song in the season 2 episode "Lie to Me" was replaced.

    The Archive of Incomplete TV DVDs - Buyers Beware! (Updated 3/27/05)

    I believe there's already a few threads started on this topic...besides, it would be a lot easier to make a list of sets that HAVEN'T been abridged or altered, cuz that list would be a lot shorter.

    TV on DVD. Why do you buy it?

    I completely disagree. I good TV producer knows the most effective spots to insert act breaks in a program. The commercials make the show more dramatic, and usually actually improve the storytelling. Yes commercials are by definition a limitation, but masters like Joss Whedon, JJ Abrams, etc...

    Can you name episodes of TV shows that have been edited on DVD?

    Changes made to "Firefly" for it's complete series DVD release: 1.) The opening narrations was removed. These prologues were added to explain the basic ideas, characters, and settings of the series to new viewers, and viewers who hadn't seen "Serenity" (which was everyone). Book-Narrated...

    Future Criterion TV-DVD Releases?

    Why would they have to be obscure shows? Because of licensing issues or something? Here's some great obscure shows: John Ridley and Sofia Coppola's "Platinum" Ken Finkleman's "Foreign Objects"

    Bad dialogue? The dialogue's brilliant! It's the best reason to watch the show. I agree about the contrived plots, though.

    FIREFLY DVD Discussion Thread (Merged)

    The series can't return to television until about 2013, because of the movie deal, for which sequels preclude a TV series. The entire cast has signed on for 3 films, so a sequel will be made if the first one's successful. Also, Universal apparently wants to release an animated prequel to...

    Finished The X-Files - Need Something New

    I strongly recommend Firefly, or, since you liked The X-Files, you may want to check out the rest of the Carterverse, including Millenium and the soon to be released Harsh Realm (and The Lone Gunman, not yet on DVD).

    Special features

    The "Previously on...'s" aren't special features, they're part of the shows, and should be on the DVD releases (although they're often deleted). The next-episode trailers are cool special features, although they rarely seem to be included in sets. I love trailers - though they're almost...
