Direct from Fox in a snazzy press kit, here are the details for the UK Futurama DVDs!

Release date: Jan 28th 2002
Price: 39.99

Disc 1
'Space Pilot 3000', 'The Series Has Landed', 'I, Roommate', 'Love's Labors Lost In Space'
Commentary for each episode (doesn't say by whom, though)
4 deleted scenes
Script and storyboards for 'Space Pilot 3000'

Disc 2
'Fear Of A Bot Planet', 'A Fishful Of Dollars', 'My Three Suns', 'A Big Piece Of Garbage', 'Hell Is Other Robots'
Commentary for each episode
Season 1 trailer
2 deleted scenes (Amy fans note that neither is from 'Garbage', so Lauren Tom's credit for that episode - where Amy appeared but never spoke - will remain a mystery forever...)

Disc 3
'A Flight To Remember', 'Mars University', 'When Aliens Attack', 'Fry And The Slurm Factory'
Commentary for each episode
'Special featurette' (no details given - Matt Groening/David Cohen interview?)
1 deleted scene
Stills and concept art - 44 pics and 4 video segments

So there you have it! Better yet, I should hopefully have the discs in my hands in about two weeks! In your face, Gandhi!   big grin

That's wierd, on the Flyer I got with my Simpson DVDs it said that Futurama season 1 is due January 29th 2002, it also confirms this date in a UK DVD magazine called DVD Review.

Anyway the Futurama DVDs can't come soon enough if you ask me, let's hope season 2 is out by Christmas 2002. smile

Yes you can, but you will need to pay to have a chip to be put into your DVD player to make it a Multi Region player, thus it can play DVDs from all worldwide regions.

So it's not the only Season 1. It's 1ACV01-1ACV13, and imho that's fair.

Great...

Now, the question is if it is a good sign or a bad sign that they release the DVD so soon compared to other series. To me it seems like they don't expect it to be a success in british syndication.

Also, I sort of fear that FOX will go web site hunting now that they make money from Futurama things that are sold in pieces rather than broadcasted... It can't take long till the first better than mpeg1 DIVXes are available and screenshots are on various sites...

I wish they put there ALOT more deleted scenes.
Also, who needs these interviews? More scenes! =P
Well, it's hard to say that DivXed Episodes will look cool. For a DivX cartoon episode to look good, it must be approx 250-300MB. That's alot. I have couple of MPEG1 episodes, they also take 230MB each...

If making DivXes smaller - they will be VERY ugly. I also have some DivXes  smile The problem is that cartoons (especially Anime and Futurama/Simpsons too because they are alot alike, I mean "simple" drawing style) and these cartoons encode VERY badly, with lots of issues...

Not true at all... It all deppends on who decodes it.  If someone knows what they're doing, then it can look amazing full screen at only 150MB .avi.   I watch this show called noir, it is legal to download this show because it isnt even shown in the US.  Each ep is about 200MB and is pure quality.  As good as dvd.  So you CAN get amazing quality in small files.  It just depends on who codes it and if they know what they are doing.

Fox changed the date. The 28th is a Monday, which is when new DVDs get put on the shelves, so it makes more sense than the 29th.

So you saw something in DVD Review that wasn't quite accurate, huh? Um, er... look! It's the Goodyear blimp! (sound of running feet and slamming door)

I don't mind if it arrives in the shops on the 28th because it's 1 day earlyer which is cool by me.

So how do you think these DVD's will do well?  Does anybody have an idea really?

I hope they dont flop, so that Fox decided its not worth to put anymore out.

So what about people who don't have a DVD player(I wish I had a DVD player)?  Is there going to be a similar VHS copy?

Well said, anyway the VHS's will be out aswell but does anybody want to spend a load of money on the VHS version regretting it a few years down the line when they have a DVD player. Get the DVDs...

   I hope they decide to put a dvd release in America. I love futurama but never get to see it due to the fact that its on at a stupid time. So the DVD would allow me to watch it whenever.

I really hope the 1st season is a big seller because it would be a tradigy if the following seasons never made it.

Totally off-track, but when is ANSTATMAW getting updated again?

Enjoy the DVD's, hope they're worth the wait.

Click me!
                                                                                     
Thanks To Daniela for the new block.
FSAC is not just about my art, it's for the fans, any art or fictions will be gratefully received.  I'm not going to go on forever, so if I stop, then without support the site would stop, wish will be a great shame, since it seems to have some popularity

RETIRED AVATAR KING - hopefully custom rank will return one day

Er... look, a big distracting thing! (Stompstompstompstompstomp - SLAM!)

Actually, I'll probably do something for the DVDs when I get hold of them, but apart from that I;m going to be waiting for the new season to start. Which could be quite a while in the UK...   cry
