WORST RELEASE SCHEDULE EVER.
Well, it figures. Remember back when, (shortly after season 1 was released), it was rumored that season 2 could arrive as early as Christmas 2001? That was soon changed to March 2002, followed by May, then June, then July, now perhaps August. Why don't they finally announce a "sometime in the far, far, far future" and be done with it. Sorry, but this is getting really stupid.
Wouldn't this be a 1 year wait from 1st season to 2nd season? I'm sorry but I cannot wait 12 years just to get all the Simpsons on DVD.
Maybe that Groening quote inside the case about the format being obsolete for the next one wasn't a joke after all.
August 6th??? D'oh!!!
It's better than nothing.
This is ridiculous. It isn't like Sopranos, where they only have four seasons to get through. I mean, even releasing 2 a year, it will take 7+ years for all of them to come out, and the show likely will never "catch up" to new broadcasts, as the show will certainly be off the air in the next 7 years.
You know, if they don't hurry up with these, I might not even buy them. What's the point, really, of having 13 episodes on DVD when syndacation shows 3 a day, and usually the later episodes that I like better? It makes sense in my head, anyway, I am only buying the early seasons to have them all. If the later seasons come out so slowly, I won't feel that completist urge (the same urge that is getting me to order all 7 TNG seasons within one year).
I've already sold my first season, giving up collecting this show because of this foolish release schedule.
I don't think I'll be buying any of the Simpsons box sets until I find out when the third one comes out. If it's August 2003 then it truly will be 12 years to collect them all.
this sucks, Damn you Fox!!!!
also I thought MASH season 2 was supposed to come out in May, no announcement yet, wazzup with that one?
I'm still waiting for it, but I'm more thankful than ever for my taped reruns, since I doubt we'll see the entire run on DVD. Chances are they'll be up to season 5 when BAM! along comes HD-DVD, and Fox gets us to buy the entire run all over again, this time on HD...
The R4 version is still scheduled for June 5, complete with the same extras as the R1, so other than FOX trying to reduce the number of parallel imports from the US into R2 and 4 territories, I don't know why this set keeps on being delayed in R1.
I was all ready for Season 2 to come out in July but I it truly comes out on August 6th than that is only 2 weeks after the July release was supposed to come out. I just saw the Jaques outtakes on the 1st season and those were just hilarious.
Why can't they just bust out a new season every few months like Star Trek is doing?
At least Friends season 1 is supposed to come out at the end of this month so that should hold me over.
I agree with others -- I was excited about collecting the set, but see no reason to even bother at this point. It will be at least another 3-4 years until they even start hitting the seasons I even cared about, and I'll just pick up the few that interest me.
They should have done this like A&E did with the Python set. Get them all prepared and released reasonably close together, so you are very compelled to have the complete set. Now they're just ticking me off, and I have little interest anymore...
We say we are not interested now BUT once season 2 and Season 3 starts being released we(at least myself) will get all excited again and buy them.
But it is lame how Fox has gone about releasing them.
