According to http://www.digitalbits.com/ :

In other news, it looks like Fox is temporarily delaying the release of the next seasons of Buffy and Firefly. We'll post more details when we get them from the studio.

Keep Flying!

The problem is likely because the offshore DVD factory can't make them any faster.

Fox: "Make more Firefly DVD's! That is an order!"

3rd world Factory Foreman: "But sir, I'm running out of small children!"

Am I the only one who found that digitalbits link to be totally useless? I couldn't see anything about Firefly on there. Come to think of it, even if I did I don't think I'd trust it. That page didn't look as official as it could have.

they've never steared me wrong. they're almost always right.

the thing about firefly is in the "MY TWO CENTS" part, right on the main page. thats where they have all the new news. I do, however, have it cut n' pasted under the link above.
it's right under a thing about David Cronenberg's Naked Lunch and right above a thing about self-destructing Disney dvds.

If they don't release until after Christmas, sales will be reduced.

Perhaps Fox is trying to avoid looking *quite* so foolish.....

WTF! What's the meaning of this?!?!?! I hope this isn't Fox being about Firefly. Leave the Gorramn show alone already! You've already killed it, Gail. Now you want to bury it? GRRRRRRR Somebody give me a Gorramn fox!

Viva Firefly!

always happy to oblige Gorramn Fox!

As for the DVD news I guess we'll wait & see. I want them now, but if I gotta wait. I don't like it but I will have them, oh, yes...they will be mine.

Suddenly had this crazy vision of a bunch of us browncoats doing a covert landing on some unknown island and liberating crates of completed DVD sets which are simply being held back to create a supply demand levy. Just thinking crazy. I'm medicated this morning!!!

Keep an eye on this Fox site.

http://www.foxhome.com/firefly/

It should become active when the release date approaches.

In case anyone is interested, here's the one for Angel

After reading about crappy transfers on some early 20th Century Fox DVDs, I’m not all that surprised by this news. This major studio used its resources to slow down the DVD market’s progress to con us into paying them more for future “special editions”. Only since the turn of the century have we been able to count on a new DVD release actually being worth buying. That stage of development should have come much sooner, and we the consumers have been the victims of their scam.

Okay, I will admit that MGM used to be really bad too, but they aren’t as high-profile.

Warner Brothers, Universal, Paramount, and Columbia were the major North American studios that made efforts to put decent transfers on their DVDs when they first became available. If it weren’t for their efforts, we might still be stuck with crappy new releases.

On a more positive note, Barnes and Noble still have the release date set at December 9. So, here's hoping that Fox doesn't screw us over. Again.

Self-Destructing DVD's?

Idgits. If they don't last at least as long as a Blockbuster DVD (about 1 week on many releases) then they aren't worth getting.

I can imagine how pissed I'd be if I went to the store and bought a DVD, and it expired before I could watch it.

And since its utility is designed to fade with a color change, it only makes sense that some DVD players will stop reading it before others.

those self destrucing deals are only going to be available through video rental places.
the idea is that you pay 4 or 5 bucks for one, take it home and a couple days later it "expires" and you just toss it out.
it's part of a plan to combat pirates and make renting dvds easier.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


I truly hope that the DVDs are not seriously delayed. I have been looking forward to the release for months, and had hoped to have them in time for Christmas as gifts.

If they are delayed past XMas, this is for the people behind the delay......

Am I overly cynical in thinking the delay might be because they want to hike the price? I remember when the pre-order stuff went up at Amazon, and I thought "huh, if they know that the demand is really high among the die-hards (who will buy no matter what), couldn't they just charge whatever they want and laugh all the way to the bank as we desperately paid up?"

Only the fact that Buffy DVDs are being delayed also makes me think this might not be true...
