OK, listen:

The 1st season of Rocky and Bullwinkle comes out August 5th.

A collection of some of the best Looney Tunes comes out at some point. This includes Duck Dodgers and Duck Amuck, two of the best creations of man ever. :(

Space Ghost: Coast to Coast and Aqua Teen Hunger Force, two of the greatest TV shows ever, come out on November 18.

And the Critic is coming out at some point, too. :(

Also:

Futurama: 2nd Season comes out August 12th.

Family Guy: Volume 2 comes out September 9th.

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

I need august 26th to get here pronto because of the release of many quality DVDs but escpecially the Simpsons Season 3.  In the past year, my faith in the Simpsons has reached an all time low, because this season's episodes are pure garbage compared to the previous seasons and when compared to other quality shows like south park and curb your enthusiasm, AND because I live in the only city in the world that doesn't show the simpsons in syndication, so I haven't seen a good episode since i watched my season two DVD many many moons ago (on a side note, my friend, who spent the last year in Malta, the third smallest country in the world, an Island just south of Italy, got to see TWO SIMPSONS A DAY on Maltease television! and i saw ZERO PER DAY!)  Also, Aqua Teen on DVD means Aqua Teen marathon which equals AWESOME!  Additionally, the Critic on DVD is like a dream come true in DVD form.  Furthermore, August 26th is Mr Show season three (which is a great thing)

sorry, i forgot about my responsibilities here.  perhaps i found out about it pre-xixax.com (the dark ages), and didnt think to post the news here.  i have 17 VHS tapes they have released of random episodes, that are due to be upgraded to the complete seasons (so you can actually follow the storyline), and i CANT WAIT.

ANybody hear when South Park Season 3 comes out?
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

From: http://critic.nohomers.net/

USA Today has reported that The Critic DVD is in the works!  Click here to read the entire article which contained the following information.

While many beloved series have found a new home on DVD and on viewers' shelves, a few holdouts such as Seinfeld and Northern Exposure remain — but not for long. DVD releases are in the works for both series. They are among the most requested DVDs on Amazon.com. Also in the works: Jon Lovitz's animated The Critic, King of Queens and Barney Miller.

Al Jean (series creator) also leaked this info two months ago but I was not allowed to say anything.  I guess since this report came out it's ok for me to say that this IS official and confirmed to be worked on very soon.

ANybody hear when South Park Season 3 comes out?

 
According to tvshowsondvd.com, A tentative date of December 16th has been set for the third season of South Park. Just in time for Christmas, whoo hoo! Of course as you can all see, the date is subject to change. Hopefully it will be out just in time for the Holidays.



Volume 1: Space Ghost Coast-To-Coast
Features 16 episodes and lots of special features on a 2-disc special edition set.
English language, with Eng/Fr/Sp subtitles and CC
$29.98 SRP
Street Date 11/18/03


Volume 2: Aqua Teen Hunger Force
Features 16 episodes and lots of special features on a 2-disc special edition set.
English language, with Eng/Fr/Sp subtitles and CC
$29.98 SRP
Street Date 11/18/03

All information is tentative, and subject to change. But independant sources confirm that a huge marketing campaign is in-the-works pushing the November 18th date, so that's about as firm as you can get.

Fuck it. Fuck it all. It all means nothing until I finally get my Tick DVD's.

When Lord? When?
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

This is some pretty stellar news, dudes!  I am so stoked!  Pizza dude!

Anyway, I'm in the same boat with Raikus about "The Tick."  Pretty funny show:

Guy in restaurant:  Ticks suck blood.  Do you suck blood?
Tick: Uh, yeah.  I suck blood all the time.
Guy in restaurant: Yeah, right.
Tick: Look! I got a straw right here, pal, you want a demonstration?
