    Dude, Season 2 is not even out yet. I'll be happy with that first.

    At the rate they're going, we'll probably get season III in holographic Ultra-HD-mini-DVD in 2115 [​IMG]

    I wish we could find out the reason for this delay! All the reviewers have been given Season 2, but yet its been pushed to August 6th. The set is obviously ready for release.

    I'm sure the reason for slipping to Aug 6th is to make sure enough copies are output by the factory to fulfill demand! It's kinda popular, y'know!

    >>I wish we could find out the reason for this delay! >>
    You know folks, Matt Greoning himself appears at the San D comic Con, and IIRC, it's pretty darn soon [​IMG]. Maby someone can ask him there? I remember asking him in 1998, the one and only time I got there, if Simpsons would ever make it on DVD. I was nervous meeting him, and sort of mumbled it out. Wish I had more courage to ask him a few Q's, since I was the last in line anyway and could have chatted him up [​IMG]..

    I think the reason the set is delayed in America is to stop people importing the R1 set into R2.

    For the first season, the set could be imported for HALF THE PRICE (including postage) of the R2 release.

    Nobody I know bought the R2 release, they all imported and saved themselves a bundle of cash.

    The second season set is being released on this coming Monday in the UK (Monday 8th July). I expect the month difference is to encourage us British to buy the domestic release instead of importing again.

    Exactly, but as the R1 will cost only £22 to import I will wait a month. Saves about £8.

    A good argument about the R2 issue. I'm going to try my favourite retailer tomorrow morning - if I can get series 2 at under 30, I'll buy it. Otherwise, I'll probably wait a month or so for the R1.

    re: the delays: Doesn't anybody remember all the player incompatibility and other gaffes that happened with season 1? I'm betting that the extra time is to work all of those out with this set.

    Yeah, I'll wait until some concensus is reached on the reliability of Season 2's discs before I buy them. Speaking of which, is there word that the Season 1 sets currently in the BBs and CCs are fixed versus the initial offerings?
