Well, . . Got my Season 5 dvd. . .

It's very odd but I went in Best Buy looking for Cowboy Bebop (because Spike rocks the casbah) and I was passing by the B5 DVDs when I saw this brown shiney box. I stared at it for a moment, picked up the box, read the back carefully, muttered an expletive or two, picked up a copy of Cowboy Bebop: The Movie and left.

Very odd. Surreal experience really. I can't believe Best Buy had S5. I've hear of smaller places having the DVDs ahead of time but Best Buy?!

Anywho, anybody else got their copy yet?

Well, what do you want to know? I haven't gotten a chance to look at the special features.

But when you put in the DVD it looks like an explosion and then the debris moves outward (SIL, anyone?). Not surprisingly the horrid morphing cast photos are back.

They look kinda grainy actually.

but Delenn's not in them for some reason.

anywho

The only reason it was on the shelves is because they F#&KED up. They could pay some serious fines for putting product (DVDs or Software titles) out on shelves before the street date. If that store gets caught, the company could get fined.

Yes, I know about the fines. I think it's something like a 10,000 dollar fine per item put out before the release date.

I thought Best Buy was tightening up on the release dates. They didn't even put the second volume Big O dvd out ahead of time. And that wasn't near as big a title as B5. Hell, it's smaller than the Farscape dvds. I can't believe they were so wreckless in putting out the B5 S5s.

You answered my question already about the special features and that you haven't looked at them.Eh morphing pictures and one with Lochley I could have lived without her .

I've seen my local Best Buy make that mistake in the past. I picked up a copy of Bob Fosse's All That Jazz there a week before the release date.

It could also be that WB f#cked up (wouldn't THAT astonish us! ) and didn't put the "do not shelve before..." sticker on the boxes that shipped the DVDs. I have seen that happen before.
