    Hope they're not counting the sales of season 1 as a level of 'consumer demand', since I already bought the first discs and didn't buy the season 1 set since I already have all the episodes on it. I'll start buying them when they have 'new' episodes on them though.

    I'll only buy if Warner grows up and lets Matt and Trey record commentaries and don't tamper with them

    Warner better not screw 2 and 3 up like they did with 1. When something as basic as chapter stops (esp. after the introductions) is missing, you know someones not doing something right.

    Very good news. I'm glad I don't have to wait 8 months like I do with The Simpsons (Anybody share my doubts that we won't finish the collection by the time the next format hits?)

    I can't wait. Season 3 with Mr.Hankey's Christmas classics can't come fast enough.

    Did the original Rhino discs end at the end of Season 2 or was it midseason?

    Anybody remember?

    Thanks.

    The Rhino discs started getting into Season 2 - about halfway IIRC.

    I wonder if "Not Without My Anus" will be included on the WB Season 2 set?

    IIRC - if I remember correctly.

    "Not Without My Anus" is episode #201, and it appeared on Volume 4 of the Rhino releases. Even though it was a "Fake-out" episode, it's an official one, and should be there. The running joke during the intros is that every episode of South Park is Matt and Trey's (and well, old Scratch here) favorite episode. But NWMA was Matt and Trey's REAL favorite (up until their new favorites, "Cripple Fight" and "It Hits The Fan"), so if Warner forgets to include that episode, then it will REALLY hit the fan.

    One question to ask is, will Matt and Trey even bother to do commentaries, or be asked to do so, because of what happened the last time?

    And another: will Warner finally have better video transfers? I have an SVCD copy of the fifth anniversary special from satellite and the video quality of the episodes shown there far exceeded any South Park DVD released thusfar. They can do WAY better than the first season DVDs.

    Well MWMA is included in the other region box set (Each disc is region 2/3/4 and 5! - Released through Warner Vision International BTW) so I expect it to be on the R1 version.
    However I would not expect commentaries. Even if the whole fiasco over season 1 had not taken place, I think it would be asking too much for Trey and Matt to comment on every single episode of South Park.
    I always assumed that the commentaries (when first announced) would only be for Season 1 anyway.

    South Park has a bizarre look at society, and usually has a significant message, so a commentary on a few episodes each season would be nice.

    Simpsons is mostly pop culture references and such, and I can't imagine listening to a commentary for 300+ episodes...

    Matt and Trey could always just use a different kind of alchohol for each commentary [​IMG]
    "Now this is a glorious 12 year old scotch which should get us hammered really quickly...."
