Was Futurama ever fully produced on VHS?

VHS.. really, I did not know that.. hmpf

Did the VHS Futurama cassettes had a different intro or something between the episodes?

I see season 1 had Deleted Scenes and Featurette according to the Infosphere.. how did that work on VHS..?

I'd say at the end of the tapes actually, out of the way of standard viewing that way.

It's funny to think that about 10 years ago, people were still buying and watching VHS tapes. DVDs are much better, though.

I wonder if within the next 3-5 years DVD's will be like VHS, and Blu-Ray will be the new DVD? tongue

Because I don't want to spend twice the price for the same film?  Because I have no interest in purchasing a Blu-Ray player?  I already have a DVD player.

Do you have anything that will sway me to go out and get a Blu-Ray player?  What does the Blu-Ray offer that the DVD does not?

HD quality. Bonus features not usually on the DVD.

The BluRay does not come with large enough advantages and innovations over the DVD for it to make the latter obsolete.
The step from VHS to DVD was a big step. Better durability, easier and way faster access to certain content on the medium. Better quality of the content, longer lasting equal quality (VHS tapes often got worse and worse the more you watch them). Unless you scratch DVDs they're way more durable, VHS tapes sometimes had the problem of the tape itself being swallowed by the VHS player (same advantage CD has over cassettes).
Several audio-tracks are also a great advantage of the DVD and of course the greater space of the disc itself while the space used up by the packing became significantly smaller.

And that are only a few

Yes, this is exactly what I care about.  But Bend-err explained why Blu-Ray is nowhere near the jump that VHS was to DVD.  You need the same advantage to make people want to repurchase their stuff.  It happened with CDs and it happened with DVDs.

I doubt it will happen with Blu-Ray.

they could fit the first four seasons on ONE blu-ray each, instead of four DVD's.

that's the only advantage.

They could, though that would mean it would still be the same quality in picture and sound, so it takes away the advantage of itself over DVD away. Which is in itself moronic.

Blu ray takes me out of the film because I'm too preoccupied trying to analyze and judge the quality of the picture

Well, but that is your own fault.

Did you do the same when you switched from VHS to DVD?

Blu-ray doesn't really have any advantages if one's screen isn't HD-compatible, right? Cos my TV itself isn't even high-def. So.

I really hope Blu-Ray doesn't render DVDs obsolete, I have so many DVDs. I also have a fair number of VHS and cassette tapes. Ugh.

Yes, if your TV isn't HD-compatible, then yes the advantage of the BluRay does get lost.

And since BluRay players easily play DVDs I don't think DVDs will become obsolete.

Actually.  You may want Blu-Ray to become semi-successful, as it may be influential in determining the prices of DVDs making them cheaper as an inferior medium.  For all the reasons Bend-err stated though, they probably won't quit producing the DVDs, so you get a buyer's market. smile

This is quite true. On a related note, I already spend a lot less buying episodes and seasons in SD instead of HD off iTunes. 90% of the time I'm watching them off my iPod, I don't need no fancy pixels. -grumbles about the good old days-

As long as I can play DVDs on my laptop, I'll be set. Course, they've already started removing CD/DVD drives from laptops. So.

Truth. On-topic: I don't own DVDs or Blu-Ray or VHS tapes of Futurama. I do have most of the episodes on my iPod. The VHS cover designs are cool and I still have a good VHS player so it would be neat to get my hands on one. They are probably not worth it though.

That's ok spira, I haven't boughten the season 6 DVDs because for one thing, they're broken up into two volumes (that's about 40-50 dollars total). Nor did I even buy any of the movies for the same reason. That's 200 dollars at least that I can't afford, regardless of how big a fan I am.

But I did just buy this:



Yay!

I don't have any figures either. I am just not cool.

I bought the tin signs a few weeks ago though, and they're hanging next to my bed now and they make me happy. So I guess I could be doing worse.

WTF! When did this happen? Crazy crazy world!...

There are certain things I will re-buy on Blu-Ray, but not many. I'll keep most of my DVD's. Blu-Ray is a lot better than DVD though; the picture quality is absolutely amazing! Seriously, it is a big difference from DVD, not as big as VHS to DVD, but worthwhile and definitely very noticeable by quite a long way. That should be enough, but it also has more space capacity, and often more extras and better packaging. Also, the boxes are a tiny bit smaller, and boxsets are often packaged in smaller sizes to DVD's which is good when you have space issues in your closet...

Get the DVD.  That is what's most convenient.  I am going to get the Blu-Ray myself, not because it is convenient, it hardly is.  For one thing, the PS3 won't allow me to see the video in its actual colours but rather with a green taint, because I am using a SCART cable.  But I am getting the Blu-Ray because I believe the purchase to be more longevity than a DVD purchase.

That being said, I would not recommend anyone getting the Blu-Ray unless they knew what they were doing.

Eventually something will come along and replace both.  For that, I am putting my money on the Blu-Ray outlasting the DVD.
