2PP asked me to start a thread about the DVD Set- we're just starting to send these out now, so if you want to talk about it, here's the venue for it. :)

    I'm so glad I preordered this.

    I really shouldn't be spending any money on anything but rent and food right now, but I just had to!

    Got mine yesterday, went through all the commentary and extra scenes and finished those up this morning. Great work, I do wish that there were less silent moments in some of the commentary from the PA guys but I definitely understand how it can be a little odd. All of the commentary was solid, though, and I'm really glad that everyone was so willing to be open and talk about what was going on.

    Also, Khoo: REALLY want more info on the 3/10 year thing. You're probably going to get a lot of people asking for more info - I know I'm extremely curious, both about the plan itself and what it could mean for the future. I sincerely hope you'll tell us very soon.

    Thank you for taking the time to sign 'em, by the way. I can only imagine how much your wrists wanted to fall off after signing all those copies, but for mine at least most of 'em are legible. There's one or two out of the eleven that I can't quite make out, but I'll figure it out. Also, I love the fact that the DVD menus actually contain footage. It was a really nice touch.

    One question for the 2PP guys: the end of the 2PP commentary for the Time 100 episode was just about to go into what sounded like a really good story before the guy telling got shushed. While I don't imagine I'll ever get a response, I have to ask: who was the guy involved and what happened?

    I imagine I'll receive mine this week, shipping from Seattle to Vancouver can't take long right? I'm looking forward to going through all the commentaries and bonus stuff, I'm so glad the shipping went down in price so I could preorder in time.

    I hope to get this for Christmas this year, put it on my Amazon wishlist for the family to see at least. I wish I had the money to pre-order and get it signed by the office though. Silly university and food taking all my money.

    Will the DVD (eventually) be available on digital format(s)? Like, an iTunes purchase, or maybe rentable through Netflix?

    I was kind of disappointed at the lack of interest in the drive to pre-order and bulk ship copies of this to europe.

    But tonnes of people continue to complain about the shipping costs.

    One day when I am drunk and decide that 40 quid is a reasonable amount for a DVD, I will have it.

    Mine arrived on Friday and I've found time since then to work my way through discs one and two (save for the 2pp commentaries, which I'm saving until the end).

    I'm very happy with the purchase, the extra footage really feels purposeful rather than slapped on. I feel like it fills in the gaps that were necessary to the artful story telling of the series.

    The PA staff commentaries have been solid to great. Any weaknesses have come more from what sounds like being new to the concept of laying down a commentary for one's own life. Anytime Kristin or Robert are part of a commentary, they delivered in a big way.

    One request from a sensitive man who cries at heartfelt moments, just go easy on Jeff.

    Mine was like that for a couple of days -- it finally updated to having been processed through a facility one state away, so hopefully it's coming in today.

    I mean I got the confirmation email six days ago. Let's go USPS, quit dragging your ass.

    HOLY SHIT.

    Little cardboard box, right by my mailbox, as I left for the office this morning. And it had my name on it!!!

    SCREW THE OFFICE. I grabbed it and ran back to my apartment. Sliced it open, and inside was...

    Inflatable packing material!!! MY FAVORITE ROBERT HOW DID YOU KNOW

    Oh and also there was this DVD thing inside, with beautiful silver signatures all over the front.

    Aww yisssssss

    I was late at this point, so I haven't had a chance to do anything more. But I know what I'll be watching tonight!

    After Glee, of course. :X

    I'll take some pictures or something maybe. My signatures are the BEST signatures, I am sure.

    Oh, and my shipment tracking still says the damn thing is in Washington state. Oh well. Made it to Philly just fine.
