    I'm very frustrated. It's out on region 2 but it won't make it's way over here. Is there any chance we'll get it. If not, I'll have to make my player a multi-region player (How do you do that by the way?).

    Making your deck region free is typically not worth it, due to the ludicrous prices for kits from Europe. It requires good soldering skills even if you can get the chip. You're better off buying a new player

    You can't watch the discs with just a region free player, you need a PAL to NTSC converter, which the Malata N996 has in addition to being region free and progressive scan.

    Since the discs are basically finished already, I'm guessing that since it's cancelled they'll try to selll the show into syndication and then release the DVDs after that.

    Um, Family Guy is cancelled? Since when? I heard about Futurama being cancelled, but not FG.

    I think he is confused. Futurama is cancelled not Family Guy.

    Actually, "Family Guy" is indeed canceled. They're still showing the episodes that have already been produced but when they've been aired, the show is gone for good. I guess Fox finally realized that a small fanbase isn't enough to save a show with such poor ratings that consistantly gets bad reviews.
