A question, why don't current TV seasons get released in the summer, rather than the fall? It seems that it would give more time for audiences to catch up with a show, then be ready to watch when the new season begins. As it stands now, most of last season't shows aren't being released on DVD until right around when the new season begins, making it impossible for new fans to watch and catch up before the new season begins. For example, the show VERONICA MARS. Despite the rave critical reviews, I had never seen the show. But, in order to get people interested, CBS aired the pilot and another episode last Friday. I watched it and LOVED the show. So, I wanted to watch the rest of the season. Unfortunately the second episode they showed was from later in the season and I wasn't sure of a lot of what was going on, so I figured I'd have to wait for the DVD. But, the DVD doesn't come out until the second season starts. Meaning, I probably won't be able to watch it in time for the second season to air. So, I'd have to wait for the second season to be on DVD to see it. I understand from a marketing purpose, how they can advertise the DVDs AND the new season at the same time, but it just seems natural to release them earlier, build an audience on DVD then convert them into regular show watchers. This is how I got into 24, getting the box set over the summer and then watching it all before the second season began. I don't know why more don't do this.
