    Does anyone know when Buffy: season 3 is coming out? I hope soon. I want to watch what happens in Season 3 after the events of Becoming, parts I and II. The ending was such a downer that I don't think I can wait for six months for the DVD box set. I may end up buying the crappy VHS tapes that sell on eBay. [​IMG]

    If you looked in your season two set behind the booklet with episode descriptions, you would've seen a little card that says "Winter 2003" (most likely January). [​IMG]

    Errrr...thanks, Matt. My bad. Guess I'd better start exploring the packaging a bit more, eh? [​IMG]

    That's what you get when you don't support fabulous show when it first airs, you get stuck in suspense [​IMG]

    Geez, didn't you just get season 2? I'm having to wait for MONTHS to get Oz, The Simpsons, and the Sopranos (although the last one is almost current) but Buffy and Star Trek are being released this quickly? Where's the justice in that?

    Seems to be about right, but what about OZ? There are still four seasons that aren't on DVD, correct? Might they have all of these out as a promo for S6 perhaps (wishful thinking...)?

    I don't know about Oz; honestly it's just not my thing so I haven't kept up with it.

    I had never watched Buffy on TV, but I couldn't pass up the deal that Best Buy was having on the S1 set last week so I picked it up oyt of curiosity. Needless to say I'm now hooked and am eagerly awaiting the arrival of S2 from Amazon (good deal with coupons)! Being that I have an all-code player I'm now also finding it hard resisting buying the other seasons from Region 2, but they're pretty expensive over there!

    Actually, the Buffy release did not go that smoothly. The region 1 release was delayed for almost a year because of syndication issues. Apparently it could not be released in the US until after it had run through at least once in syndication. They are up to Season 4 or 5 in the UK, and it is SOO tempting to just buy both. [​IMG] The only thing stopping me is that I can only play region 2 DVD's on my computer and compared to my RPTV my monitor is way to tiny. I prefer my Buffy in all it's huge sized glory. lol.

    At least 4 months for Season 5 over here I would say...

    I agree, Buffy was one that took a while to be released.

    I was hoping that FOX would speed up the releases a bit, which they seemed to do slightly with season 2, but with winder 2003, it seems like we're back up to 6-7 months between seasons.

    Did anyone think that maybe it was a typo? They had many copies of the first season released with "Included all 24 episodes of season one" on the package.

    Maybe the same thing happened here...

    I wish it was winter 2002, that would put it about 2-3 months ahead.

    Less drooling time for me.
