Heres a link to some of the extras for S2. There mainly deleted scenes, but there should me some more. I hope they're better quality than the ones on S1

Thanks for the heads up.  There should be audio commentaries as well as other stuff.  David Cohen mentioned that they were almost done with the season 2 commentaries when the first dvd set came out.

Cool, koolj (No pun intended, whatsoever), thanks for the info. By definition, wouldn't cut scenes be of lower quality, than the finished product? I think these CS would be just as fuzzy and sound-deprived as the others.

I'm really looking forward to the audio commentaries of "Xmas Story" and "AOI I".

Wow! Those are a lot of deleted scenes! The Soylent Chow sounds good. I can't wait for this set. Let's just hope it's the entire 2ACV production block, apart from what's left from season 2.

However, it won't be out September. It'll be held back to October, December and February, before being released in March. What? Me, bitter about the huge wait for Simpsons season 2? Never! :P (though at least R2 gets it a month before R1  smile).

So does America hate Futurama or what? Cuz I want these DVDs bad. I like those short clips and 'commercials' that they show in the beginning of the episodes. Why did they stop making them? That's A+ omake (bonus) material!

The US doesn't hate Futurama any more or less than other countries, it is just that television companies will not pay as much for syndication rights if the DVDs have been released.  Either Fox hasn't gotten good enough offers to syndicate it or Fox is waiting until the show is over before syndicating it, either way the show will have to be syndicated or a period of time has passed that proves the show cannot be sold, which Fox considers five years (but it is not a law, just a rule of thumb).

From the DVD: David Cohen said they stopped doing "cold openings" because they decided people weren't noticing the show was on.  The loud funky theme music would help alert people that the show had started.

Syndication is when a TV station (such as FOX) sells the right to air a show (such as Futurama) to other American networks or TV stations. As I understand it, there are no rules for when a show can be sold in syndication but logically you have to have a reasonable amount of episodes and a somewhat interesting show.

A DVD set released in USA would of course lower the value of Futurama as a syndicated show.

But I'll probably be overruled by some American PEEL'er.   big grin Just my understanding of it.

Looks right to me...
Simpsons is massively syndicated, its everywhere.
5 Canadian stations that I know of routinely air episodes. I dunno if international matters, or intercontinental...

I wonder what the packaging will be like for Season 2? I hope it'll be done in a similar style to the first Season because that packing was cool, and it would be great to get a continuing theme, but I also hope it’s got some originality smile

The outer box should prety much stay the same, but could have other drawings on the wide side. The inner box should diffinitely have some other drawings, like the inner of the PE building or the ship or something.

I hope they make some changes to the way it's made though. You can damaged the color on the outer box by sliding the DVD boxes in and out. Not good, that should change. And for gods sake use some better glue. My inner box have already started to crack, soon I'll have to resort to scotch tape.  frown Not goof either.

According to Futurama.ru(Russian Futurama site), you can already pre-order it from dvd.co.uk and even save 10 off the RRP of 40! 40!?! That seems a lot - well only a fiver more than S1, but what warrents a rise in price?

You probably all know this already anyway...

Ooh, ooh, ooh, I just checked dat, and it's true! F2 is available for pre-order! BAM!

Actually, the second-season and first-season sets are going for the same price at the site Zed cited...which is cool, because Season Two has more more more! Me excited!

(NOTE: DVD.co.UK only ships inside England. Bloody Brits.  tongue The rest of us will have to wait for Amazon.co.UK to offer it.)

Right, S1 had 3 DVDs with 4 episodes per DVD and 13 episodes. S2 had 20 episodes requiring about 2 DVDs more.

30/13=2.31

ALARMING NEWS

According to BBC Ceefax, The Simpsons Season 1 DVD box set sold badly, and if Season 2 performs as badly, there WON'T be a Season 3 set.

Knowing that, I have to ask: How well did Futurama's Season 1 sell compared to The Simpsons?

Sold badly where? Here in the US, that DVD sold a whole mess of copies. And I'm still waiting for Season 2. STILL WAITING! And in response, I think Futurama would do worse than the Simpsons over here because I don't think it's as popular. (Why, I dunno)

I always thought that Season One of The Simpsons sold well, it sold very well. I don't know what Fox are playing at. Maybe it's because they're too lazy to make any more sets, I mean Season Two was due out before Christmas last year, all the commentaries were done last year and yet it's still not released. It's all about money, and I think Fox know that they can make more money by ripping us off with overpriced themed compilations of random episodes.

Also Futurama Season One has sold very well too, not as well as The Simpsons, but it still made number one in the DVD charts, and stayed in the top 10 for ages  smile Luckily it seems that on DVD, Futurama is getting treated better, we'll soon see if this stays true when we find out if Season Two gets delayed or not. I must admit that the news of The Simpsons possibly stopping on DVD after Season 2 is making me worried about Futurama. Lets just hope every Futurama season gets released on DVD  smile

I don't know about low sales numbers for the Simpsons Season One (are you talking European sales or combined?), but some people gripe about not liking the first season of the show.  I think the sales will pick up with the later seasons, but I'll be buying them all myself.  Wouldn't put it past FOX to screw something up.  The second season release taking so long isn't helping things either probably.
