    Apologize if this was posted on another forum, but I'm reading an article in USA Today (click here to view it) about the Friends DVD release and what do I come across but a quote attributed to Ron. Nice job, dude. [​IMG]
    Edit: Okay, I can't resist. If you click on the link in the article for the Friends photo gallery and scroll through a few, you'll see an image where Ross bears more than a passing resemblance to Ron. [​IMG]

    Jeff, you owe me a new keyboard, since I'm sure this one is ruined by the amount of water I just spit on it after seeing that. [​IMG]

    Good article. Certainly good by USA Today standards. It's too bad they quoted the URL for TVShowsonDVD.com with spaces... hopefully the general public can mash them together and get to that great site [​IMG].

    I want my Home Theater Forum T-shirt, coffee mug and mouse pad because we do, in fact, rock.
    I'm very proud to be counted among our 27,000-strong army of devotees. If we pooled our resources, we could actually topple a small country. [​IMG]

    Congrats Ron! It's always great to see your name in print...and it's a sweet endorsement for this superlative community as well.

    Semi-related: I really love this Friends set! This is how all TV shows should be treated on DVD!

    I feel kind of cheated.
    What I wanted to drive home in that article
    was the shoddy job Warner Brothers was doing
    with their other television product -- especially
    South Park.
    I had thought the interviewer I talked to
    understood the importance of bringing this out.
    I don't know what happened to the article as
    it was originally supposed to be a much broader
    report on TV shows on DVD.

    Yeah, rather ironic that the latest South Park best-of was listed in the sidebox of "upcoming releases."

    The stories that reporters come up with often times seem to be alot different than what was expected. I know this first hand being the son of a local county official. Around here at least, they seem to write the truth as they see fit. I also hear that same opinion from many people including a police officer friend of mine that writes press releases. He says they never come out sounding the same as what he wrote when the story comes out in the newspaper.

    Hi guys i also was interviewed for that article (randy sims from San Diego) and stated my preferance for season sets rather than best-of collections.

    I think he did an ok job of stating that season sets are the way to go. with a short article i guess it is hard to get into every part of it.

    Ron congrats for the publicity for the forums.
