Any rumored date yet?
Having just received my set today from DDD, I'm patient for Season 2. I hope WB does an aggressive release schedule though while maintaining and improving quality.
I just hope theyre faster releasing the seasons than Fox has been with the Simpsons... Now, I'm not expecting Paramount's Star Trek: TNG speed releases (7 in less than 12 months) but I hope they get out 1 maybe 2 more before the end of this year.
Same here, 1 or 2 more this year would be a great timetable, and won't spread my DVD budget too thin. Hopefully we'll be hearing an announcment from Warner in the next couple months.
I'd like to see several more seasons prior to the end of the year, too.
I, um, "asked". Nothing yet, but that doesn't mean that word couldn't come down the pike tomorrow.
You know, I'm okay with 2 a year, or 1 every 9 months. It gives me time to reload the finances. ST:TNG is a classic example of high cost and quick output. The result? I haven't bought one yet although I'm a fan of the series. Hopefully these won't be put on moratorium so I can get them later when I win the lotto.
I'd be happy with no more than 3 seasons a year of anything
There's enought TV product out there right now to break me good. 2 releases a year is great IMO.
One of the reasons why I'm not buying TNG yet is that it's coming out so fast. I'm going to buy 1,2,3 and then hold off on the rest till I recover from the blitz of DS9
3 a year is good for me. I would emediately prefer the way TNG is going, but that won't happen. This is the first seasoned set of anything I've bought. I hope Warner puts these out fasted than some other companies have put there's out.
I think we are pretty well agreed on faster than Stargate, slower than TNG.
I wonder if the high price on Friends Season 1 was meant to discourage us from buying the series so WB could say season sets don't sell. Weren't the Best-of sets significantly less expensive per episode?
I bought mine partly because I wanted to encourage WB on season sets, but I'm quite enjoying them so far.
To John and Malcolm:
What did you both pay for the complete first season?
I think we somehow have a really good deal in Canada for this set, inasmuch as 2 stores here in downtown Toronto had it for 60 dollars Canadian (which is equivalent to approximately 40 dollars U.S.)
Usually the translation of prices to Canada matches the U.S. price (more-or-less). For instance, Training Day is presently 20 bucks on Amazon, which would amount to close to 30 bucks Canadian and that is the retail price of it here. This would mean that Friends Complete First Season (going by Amazon's price) should be approximately 90 dollars Canadian.
I found these DVDs to be exceptional and I look forward to future seasons as well.
I need to correct myself. I thought the 2-disc 10-episode set was $20. It turns out that was the one disc price. Still, WB is starting off at some of the highest priced TV material to date. Hopefully it will sell well to continue. I certainly would not buy at MSRP. I paid $39.
I paid $47 at Costco.
I paid $44.99 at Best Buy.
$44.99 Best Buy for season 1. $30 for 2 "best of" discs. I'll take the $44.99 per season.
Damn, I paid $49.99 at BB, how'd you get it for $44.99?
I've got my receipt right here. Looks like a trip to BB at lunch today to get my 5'er. Thanks David
