We are all excited about the release of Season 4, but that is no reason to spam up this thread with a countdown.  Please only post new developments for the DVD.

Nonsense! We could do hourly countdowns until the next rerun comes on Adult Swim, or count how many episodes are left before they start the cycle over!

That is if anyone was really desperate to do countdowns.

Actually guys I've got bad news. I was on the foxdvd website and looking at season 4 (I don't have to worry cause I got it from the UK already) but it said that it wouldn't release until November...sorry  frown

Fox store still says August 24th.  Where's the page that says November?

I wouldn't mind it getting delayed for the purpose of getting new features (if that would happen), as opposed to having them release it in august and then do a re-release of some sort later on down the line. I don't think I would be able to justify re-buying something that I already own just for some more features. Awesome though they may be. Anyway, that was just my thinkings. Amazon (and most other places I can find) still says it is due on the 24th (though, interestingly, futureshop doesn't have a listing up for it yet... I'm waiting to see their price before I pre-order it).  I think word would have gone out to the stores had there been a delay.

Methinks, perhaps, Spacedal, that you found this site, which lists the release date as November 2003.
It's also the UK one.

So, no need to fret, folks.

Yeah, I was sorta thinking that too...thanks, Slack Jawed.

On the topic of those potental rereleases....I'd consider it if the price was right and the special features were truly awesome, but yeah, otherwise I'd probably pass or at least put buying them on hold.  Still, if they do come to pass I'll be interested to see what the new features would be, to say the least.  And its certainly encouraging in that Fox (at least the home video sector) has apparently taken a good look at the show's profitability....may or may not help instigate some sort of comeback.

I know that this is off topic...But hey, everyone was doin' it--I just wanted to be popular.

Anyway, if Fox was to ever rerelease the Futurama DVDs (as unlikely as it seems), I would definitely consider buying it. Of course, the special features would have to be very tempting. But hey, even if they weren't, I'd still consider buying rereleases somewhere down the line. And, if you look at this thread and what futufan (sort of) implied, a rerelease may be more likely than we think. And, like DtB said, it's definitelty encouraging to see Fox (Home Video) taking an interest in the show and its profitabilty...certainly a bit of hope for those of us who are hoping for a comeback (i.e. all of us).

And it actually says 2003, not 2004....

Volume four is definetely coming to these shores on August 24th, guaranteed.  They wouldn't push it back this late in the game anyway.

Fox is consistant with dvd release dates though.  The home video sector is seperate from the lousy television sector.

The only Fox release I can really remember getting pushed back was The Simpsons season two, which kept switching dates a lot.  Other then that, when they set a date, they stick to it (aside from Futurama Volume Two, which I believe they actually released earlier then the original date).  Plus, now that its less then a month before release, they won't change the date.  Release dates never change that close to release.

Exactly. Since the R1 and R2 DVD releases are essentially the same (except for the release date, that is...), there is really no reason to push the date back. Sure, there are complications for Fox when they release the R1 Futurama DVDs (causing our dates to always be later than the R2ers'), but with the release less than a month away, the date is pretty solid.

Also, I think that you may be right about the Volume 2 release being ahead of schedule (though correct me if I'm wrong). I remember season 2 of The Simpsons being a killer, now that you mention it (if memory serves, the release date was constantly changing), by the way.

To tide us over, here's an IGN review, which I just discovered (I don't know why they put it up so early, but who am I to complain):

Thanks for the review, DtB. Can't figure out why it's out so early, but hey, I'm not complaining.

Wow, only 15 more days, and I still have to pre-order this (I'll probably get around to it some time this week).

Hey, that's an early review...  and pretty short, too.

I don't think I'm going to pre-order this time, I'm going to be on vacation still, so it won't do me much good. What kind of places would have good deals on the set when it first comes out, anyone have any ideas?

Well, for Volume Three and Simpsons S4, Best Buy seemed to have the best deals around.  Hard to beat 30 bucks each on those.  Of course that's the opening week price and they probably up it a little afterwards, but still.

To make it easier though....

dvdpricesearch.com

Although specific deals usually aren't known until very close to release, that site at least gives one a good idea of what the best prices are.

Agreed on Best Buy being the cheapest (Target and Circuit City are the next best--I believe that both had Volume Three and Simpsons Season Four for 35 bucks). I'm debating on whether or not to pre-order, but I think that's what I'll end up doing (Although, if truth be told, Best Buy is actually, in the long run, a bit of a better deal than Amazon price-wise. I just feel that Amazon delivers better quality products than Best Buy. That may just be my case locally, though.)

If you plan on getting it at Best Buy, no matter what, they'll never run out (well, that's the case at my BB, I don't know about yours), and the sale price since it just came out will only be $29.

Same case over here. When I got Volume Three, there was a pretty big surplus over at Best Buy. I don't have any experience with many other stores (Target, Circuit City) as far as DVDs go--anyone ever get them from either of those places? As far as online stores, while I highly regard Amazon, I was wondering if anybody here has ever pre-ordered a DVD from another online store. If so, were they worth it? Thanks in advance.

Yeah, went into Best Buy on both Volume 2 and Volume 3 releases; FILLED with Futurama.  Couldn't believe how many copies there were.  That partially allows for me to select which one looks the best package-wise too.

The day Volume 3 came out I actually hopped on a bus from school and went early (too early actually, they weren't open when I got there) to Best Buy to make sure I got it as soon as possible.  Pathetically geeky, but good times nonetheless...

Yup, getting there early is a plus, but even if you get there relatively late, the store always has a large amount in stock. I arrived there "late" on the day of Volume 3's release (about 3 o'clock), and even then there were at least 20-30 copies. It's a nice attribute of the store that you can get your "pick of the litter", so to speak.
