    I already have the previously released DVDs, so there doesn't seem to be any reason for me to buy this if there's no commentary. I'll buy the season sets that have the episodes after Volume 6 though.

    Yanking commentaries is becoming a habit with WB.

    Jeff Kleist, all. It's a 5-CD set with commentaries for all 13 episodes.

    doh

    Highly annoying, but at least they're available in some form instead of just vanishing into the ether

    I just about went through the roof when I saw this tid bit of info posted over at the bits. Warner, when will you understand the the true fans of this series want the extras such as audio commentaries? For me, even more so on a series like South Park than on a movie. Stop telling us what you think we should be able to listen to...if we are fans of the show, we are used to it. If it was a decision of space and/or quality I would understand, but it is neither. WB was a leader in the launch of the DVD format. At the time, Contact was one of the best DVDs out content wise. You have failed to keep up with the curve. WB is about at the same level as Disney in my book right now, as far as censoring. While this isn't really censoring, its not including what YOU think we can't handle because something offensive may be said and some yahoo out there will pitch a fit. I already bought the orignal releases when Rhino did it right. When Rhino stopped, so did I...I refused to buy them if they weren't at least in an order that made sense. I planned on buying the Season sets because of the commentary, but now i don't see a reason to. No sale.

    redundant...


    Anyways.... WB isn't near the censorship powerhouse Disney is. Do you see any of their DVDs with "original and uncut" on the front only to be censored? No.

    Yes, their Tom & Jerry DVD has a scene censored, but at least it isn't touted as restored, uncut, and original.

    And if this so bad, why hasn't anything been done about Disney's censored DVDs? It's ok for Disney to get away with it while it's not for Comedy Central?
