I'm so pissed about this. WHY THE FUCK DO THEY DO THIS TO US?! mad

Im so annoyed, does anyone know what the delay is???

I actually can't think of any reason, other than production/licensing issues, I guess.

P.S., we have a thread for Futurama in the UK where you can discuss stuff like this in more detail.. wink

Wow, that sucks noodles. Sorry to hear that! You wouldn't think one ocean would cause these delays we are seeing, especially with a piece like Destructor.

That really sucks, but I'm not really bothered as I have all the episodes on Netflix and I'm not fussed about the commentaries.

O sorry I must have over looked the thread. I am just annoyed, delay it a week or even like 6 weeks... thats bad enough, but the march of the following year, is just so unfair.

I knew for sure that it was going to be pushed back considering they haven't even started airing 6B yet but for almost nine whole months?! Come on!

I still don't have 5A on DVD.

Why are the DVDs even being sold as broadcast and not production? I want a Season 5 (5a and 5b) box set frown.

Maybe, in fourty years time, when they finally release the Volume 1-4 re-issue, they'll quietly switch to "Volume" instead of using "Season".

The email from Amazon originally said the DVD/Blu-ray had been pushed back to 5th March, but the site now says 3rd March... Yay, 2 days less! no no

There is no 5A and 5B, season 5 is all the movies.

In a sense, 5A and 5B do exist, but so do 5C and 5D.

This delay is ridiculous. December would have been bad enough, but March is unacceptable. Not clool, not clool no no...

Doesn't really matter. You can watch them all free and legal on the Internet.
But why are you doing this DVD company, why!!!

Blu-Ray too! So America gets the new eps (most have which haven't even aired yet) on DVD and Blu-Ray before we get this...

Yes it does! The quality (visual and sound) is absolutely terrible, there's buffering and loading and advertisements and sometimes it can take quite some time to find a good site to watch them on.

I'll stick to the DVDs/Blu-rays thank you very much.

One bit of good news though, Sky1 have quietly put up a trailer for the new series:

http://sky1.sky.com/futurama/new-futurama-trailer

It says Friday at 8pm, but looking at the TV guide at the moment it's got a Simpsons repeat in that slot so which Friday is anyone's guess...

Hello by the way! I've been lurking around for a while but just registered!

Too lazy to do the tinkering to enable that! At least hopefully I won't have to wait too much longer!

HOLY SHIT it's finally here!

But yeah, The Simpsons is showing up in the Friday 8pm slot on my TV guide too. hmpf

Maybe it's just a trailer they've got prepared and they've decided to put it up on the site?

It doesn't start the following week either. I see Sky is screwing us over yet again.

Dammit! I was hoping to get the new season before my birthday. Is this some sort of horrible karma for the UK getting the older seasons on DVD before the US  did for some reason before?

Even less reason for us to get them later though, because the gap in the middle becomes longer at both ends...

Hopefully this means that the stupidly long wait for the DVD may become shorter..

Knowing our luck we'll get an email from Amazon:

"Sorry, but the following product:

Futurama Season 6 DVD

has accidently been listed as 3rd March, 2013, the correct release date for this product is 3rd March, 2014. Thank you for your patience."


I pray that does not happen. mad
