    Fox just confirmed that Simpsons Season 2 has been bumped from 6/11 to 7/9. Well, at least that saves people a bit of money on June 11th with Buffy 2 and all.

    I think the delay is just to space out Buffy and Simpsons.

    I know that my family will be buying both as well. This does help on the wallet a bit, though.

    So at the current rate of about one set per year, it'll be 2010 by the time all the "good" seasons are released? Ouch... [​IMG]

    hey... as long as Fox releases the Simpsons in quality sets, I will be a happy camper. I am sure they are just delaying so Buffy and Simpsons aren't the same day. No Biggie [​IMG]

    The only thing that would make me give a sh*t about Buffy is if SMG was NAKED! Bring on my Simpsons!

    I don't know, I'm starting to come around to Buffy. Saw Willow kissing another chick on FX tonight!

    I think the thing that's making the Simpsons sets take so long is the commentaries they are recording for every episode. It's gotta be a logistical nightmare to get all of the right people together in a recording booth for a whole season's worth of episodes.

    Oh yeah, like many here I'm buying both "The Simpsons" & "Buffy". I think it more likely than not that the audiences for these two shows would intersect.

    A delay of less than one month. No biggie. Buffy fans have been waiting longer for their Season 2 set than I have. [​IMG]

    I wonder if this is really a "street date bump", or is it just that the pre-order deadline date got mixed up with the street date when the press release came out.
    It's not like THAT hasn't happened before! [​IMG]
    In either case it's okay; there was already too much coming out in June anyway.

    They already recorded like 65 commentaries. I remember the interview too.
    That was months ago, so it's also possible that a few more have been recorded too.
    I personally, love both series, but I'm happy it's not Buffy being pushed back, we've waited pretty long for them, and I think FOX knows that.
    I've got a better idea! Release Buffy Season 2 a month early! [​IMG]
