    I'm surprised Warner has the courage to participate in an online chat after the killing that has gone on in these forums. [​IMG]

    If Warner doesn't PROMISE in the chat that we will get discs identical to those released in the UK and Australia, I will buy the Australian discs and not think twice. Best-ofs are a waste
    Oh, and Bill, if you're reading this, Seasons 1 and 2 of South Park are discs 1-6. It's after Rhino lost it that they started to suck

    This is bullshit. Somehow I'm not surprised that warner did this but it still is very annoying. O and only 1/2 of Season 2 is on dvd. When will Warner just release the rest of South Park on dvd. Especially with the 5th season of South Park being absolutely hysterical we need more south park on dvd. Peace

    This is sad. Rhino gave us the entire first season on DVD and later compiled a package set. Ever since Warner has taken over they give us only this "best of" junk. This spring I purchased the Season 3 discs separately and last week ordered the Season 4 boxset. I plan on purchasing the Season 2 set and dumping my "Best of" discs now that it is confirmed Warner does not care to meet the need of the US customer unlike their foreign department has done with South Park and Space Jam. I'm guessing the chat is going to be cancelled. There is no way they have the guts to take the harsh criticism due them.

    (I have no affiliation with Amazon.co.uk, but they have all the info so I used it. Blackstar.co.uk is another retailer I use for region 2 discs.)

    Warner sucks ass. They don't listen to our requests. SP discs 1-6 sold really well. There are two copies in my house of each. Nobody in my household has any interest in this best of shit.
    Kind of appropriate that a family of shit graces the cover of the second set. It should come with a disclaimer... "This is what we're feeding you."

    Perhaps Cartman could make the marketing morons at Warner eat their parents, that might teach them a lesson. I'm getting sick of this shit, its like they don't care one bit about the people who made this format a success. Us enthusiasts were out there buying everything we could in the early days, if it wasn't for us its always possible that Divx could have succeeded. Back then Warner was one of our favorites, now they are the absolute worst. I was able to forgive them for those crappy snapper cases because aside from that they were a great supporter of DVD. But now they just don't care and it shows. I too will be surprised if they show for the chat. I can't believe there's going to be too many happy people involved with that.

    To paraphrase last week's episode:
    "Warner, you're the worst studio ever."
    "We know."

    Hehehe Damn that Towlie referrence about killed me [​IMG] Anyway, I agree that these have all sucked since Rhino lost the rights to it... Why the hell can't Warner just release the season sets?!? They were cheap individually if someone wanted to buy just a few episodes and was very reasonable to the rest of us to own the whole season. Why screw with something that was working...

    I think Warner just wants to get high.

    "I swear, if you let me get high, I'll remember to release season sets."
    "Oh all right, here you go!"
    ...
    "So where are the season sets?"
    "What season sets? Oh, man, I am so high right now..."

    Hey folks, if you don't want to buy non-Region 1 DVDs, just do what I do, collect the episodes off irc. The quality is decent, and they are free free free. I've gotten all the episodes of South Park, including the eight they aired this summer, off Dalnet.

    This topic has been discussed over and over again. Being a SP maniac it makes me want to be the $hit out of somebody. Someone better mention it at the chat and get a straight answer.

    Furious furious FURIOUS!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Why des it seem that the studios that supported the format initially and pretty much helped get DVD to where it is now suddenly have come 180 and the studios that used to suck are now the ones to beat? Warner was one of the first studios to support the format. Disney and Fox were like trying to pull teeth to get them to release anything not on Divx. Now Disney and Fox have the best DVD's out there (Well Disney's on their way at least...finally).
    I was geeked when the flood of letters hit Warner about the first best of series for Friends and it sounded like they'd do it right by releasing by season. Guess not. I will not be buying any more Bes tof Friends Series. Like someone else said, I can get them off irc. Not the same as DVD but i'd rather have that than best of crap. plus the ones they are putting on DVD are IMO definately not Best Of material. Who the hell votes for these episodes anyway?
