Futurama Volume Two- 8/12? (1 Viewer)


May 6, 2003
Hey, I've been reading this board for a while and this is my first post, but anyway according to http://www.foxtvdvd.com, it says Futurama Volume Two will be out on August 12. I hope so, that happens to be the day before my birthday. Anyway just thought I'd share what I found.

Great find Kon! It's good to know they aren't waiting an eternity to release the show on DVD.

DVDEmpire has had that pic for a while...it's the R2 cover. There's no telling if the same cover will be used for R1 yet...probably, but who can be sure? DVDEmpire just probably nabbed it as "temp art", though.

As far as the FoxTVDVD.com site goes, I think the site may be suffering from a series of typos, including that Futurama date and two other dates. Here's why:

1) M*A*S*H Season 4 is shown there as 6/15...a keystroke away from being right. Per Fox's password-protected retailer/press information network, and all the other official sources, the release date is still 7/15 for that item. Looks like a slip o' the finger.

2) Futurama 2 and Angel 2 could be a case of release date switcheroo (plus a 1-week offset on the August date). The new site is saying:
* 8/12 Futurama "Season" 2
* 9/02 Angel S2

The dates previously made available are:
* 9/02 Futurama V2
* 8/19 Angel S2

The simplest explanation is NOT that Fox changed release dates on three titles, but instead that the people creating that web page made a mistake.

3) Proof of a DEFINATE mistake? Futurama and Family Guy are both listed everywhere on that site as "Season" instead of "Volume". As we know, Fox isn't sticking to "Season" sets on these two shows, but putting them out by "Volumes" instead. Someone got in a rut and wasn't careful. :)

4) It can't even claim to have "all Fox TV DVD titles", since nowhere does it mention Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding or Death Of The Incredible Hulk. Okay...both of those were post-cancellation telefilms. I'm only half-serious about that one! :laugh:

But really, I'm not trying to beat up Fox here. I'm just trying to point out multiple inaccuracies so that noone is too quick to be *sure* that the 8/12 date for Futurama is correct. Not based on this, anyway.

Hey, if we get different, definative info that verifies that the FoxTVDVD.com site is correct after all, then I'll be the first to jump on the bandwagon! :wink:

In any case, welcome to the HTF, Kon! Thanks for bringing that website to our attention; I think it had slipped under the radar here. I hope the errors can get straightened out and I'll be keeping an eye on it for any cool info that might leak out from there.

Excellent news! I wish Fox would get the Simpsons sets out this fast...

This set will be 24 episodes correct?

However Fox chooses to mangle this order will mean nothing once they run their final 8 episodes.

I also came across this very cool interview with series co-creator David X. Cohen in which he divulges a few fascinating DVD tidbits:

There's a LOT more to this interview, so Futurama fans will want to check it out.

Hmmmm? Interesting...I added this to my Amazon wish list on April 28th 2003, and I wrote the comment (September 2, 2003) which was what Amazon originally said.

They've since retracted the date and left it as "Not Yet Released"
Futurama Vol. 2 on Amazon

Mystrery Solved! Thanks Dave

Edit: I just noticed they did the same thing for "Family Guy" Vol. 2...Not only do they both say "NOT YET RELEASED", but the artwork is gone as well.

p.s. I had Spet. 9th for the date on Family Guy.

Ah nuts. '24': Season 2 is now unconfirmed as well.

I still hope they keep the Spet 2nd date (if indeed that's what it really was), 'cause I can't wait to rewatch that season, and possibly in DD 5.1.

Wow, it's the day before my birthday as well. Great timing, since I still haven't had an excuse to pick up the first one.

I can't wait for this to come out. The secound season is so much better than the first.

www.davisdvd.com is also reporting the 8/12 release date, and this site rarely steers us wrong. Yay! August! Good news everyone!

(P.S. Last night's "new" Fox episode ("The Sting") was a lot of fun!)

Head back over to TVShowsOn DVD and you'll see that last night I published updated specs for Futurama V2, NYPD Blue S2, Angel S2, and Family Guy V2. Fox updated info for all four last night!

Futurama V2 is definately 8/12 now, switching with Angel S2 which is now 9/2. The other two dates remain the same. I have a full list of specs and extras at the site. Gotta jet, sorry.
