Yeah, the WHV reps are pretty good at completely missing the point
of a question. I still haven't figured out if this is their way of ducking questions they don't want to answer, or if they're really that dim. There's a fair amount of evidence to support either possibility.
At least this tells us that seasons 3, 4, and 5 are
all greenlit, which means they won't have to wait for sales figures (or ever preorder numbers) for 3 before they start work on 4. And whether or not this results in a speed of the release schedule, it tells us for the first time that they will definitely be releasing all 5 seasons. I've been confident all along that they would
, but this is official confirmation. Unfortunately I had to miss the chat. I really wanted to ask about the remaining TV movies, the chances of an SE re-release for ItB
and what the deal is with the "gag reel" that is listed on one WB promo page but not the other. Since a promotional e-mail that I got from WHV today also
lists "gag reel" among the extra features, I'd really like to know what this is, and if it will really be on the S2 set. Someone asked JMS about this on the moderated newsgroup, but he just ignored the thread and didn't post a reply.
