    I knew that if I went late, I'd never find it in time, so I went early. An hour after the mall opened, Sam Goody was the first store I checked. They had a big display case, and all where gone within that first hour. Probably all pre-orders.
    So, I went across the 'street' to the other side of the mall, and stopped at Suncoast. Is there another big DVD release on this date? There was a line of about 5 people ahead of me for something, wich is strange so early in the morning. The lady in front of me was the only one I saw buy a set, but the only other DVD I heard mentioned where Spiderman pre-orders. I also noticed they only had it behind the counter, isntead of out on the floor. Guess they wanted to spread it out between customers as much as they could.
    Heh, anyone else miss getting one today? I might have been lucky because there where a few left [​IMG].

    Luckily, I got one Friday. It was the only one and could not pass it up. This is the 1st time I have ever seen a DVD on the shelf before its release date so I took advantage. Plus it saved me a trip today. Now hopefully season 3 won't be too far off.

    If you have a Best Buy near you, check them. Our BB had easily 50-100 copies out.

    Got mine on Wednesday of last week. I had some free time this weekend and got to watch the entire season. You won't be disappointed! A great DVD set. Can't wait for Season 3!

    My pro-order shipped last Friday. It usually takes a week for a Canadian order to get to The Netherlands, so I'm patiently waiting, and hope it doesn't get delayed by customs....

    Bought mine from Best Buy today. Had no problems. They must have had around 50 on the shelves. Can't wait to get home and watch this. Hope season three comes out soon.

    Flew back into town today and stopped by Target on my way home from the airport (about 9:30 AM) and picked up Season 2. I got the second to last one at the target I went to. I also got LOTR but it took me a while to find a widescreen version for LOTR at Target. [​IMG]
    Looking forward to popping in Disc one of The Simpsons tonight when my friend gets off work. [​IMG]

    Just a question, did a booklet come inside the packaging? Mine didn't come with one.

    I just want to say thanks to whatever individual chucklehead at Fox decided to stick a big black security sensor tag on the OUTSIDE COVER of my Simpsons: Season 2. Removing it left quite a lovely mark on the case. I understand the need for security, but for God's sake could you people find a better way than marring the product?

    My BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: SEASON 2 dvd set was the same way, but I was able to get it off without a mark. Sorry they did that to you. [​IMG]
    Mine came on monday in the mail. [​IMG]

    Has the new Season 2 Simpsons got that rather difficult-to-remove glue on the back cover (like Season 1)?

    David,
    Yes it does [​IMG]. I had even more trouble removing the glue from Season 2 than I did from Season 1. However with a little grit and lighter fluid, all was well.

    The glue peeled off mine with zero hassles. YMMV.
