    Yeah - me too! This seems like the longest gap between series releases so far. I have heard that it will not be until around March next year! :( (can't remember where I read that though)...

    For Mrs StooMonster :blush: honest :eek: cough

    It seems like the biggest gap between seasons so far, and March is still long time away. Earlier in the year some online retailers had October-03 listed, but obviously that's been and gone.

    Wonder why the delays?

    I thought that was who it was! :)

    StooMonster doesn't mind Faith episodes at all. (In fact after watching so many of Mrs StooMonster's Buffy and Angel's should admit to quite liking them.)

    A theory posted elsewhere was that possibly Fox have left the DVD sets unti next year to give the VHS version one final Christmas, before DVD becomes the dominant format.

    Or waiting for USA to catch up, I know a lot of 'merkins are mighty POed about R2 having televisions shows on DVD before R1.

    Season 3 of Angel is out in R1 format on 10-Feb-04, and Buffy Season 5 is out in R1 format on 9-Dec-03; although Buffy still cropped to 4:3 for US release.

    There is a "Best of Buffy" due in R2 on 23-Feb-04; but who wants that? Perhaps Fox going greedy and doing compilations before S7, could we be due to see others such as "Faith Episodes" boxset?

    Been checking and all we have for release are...

    "Buffy The Vampire Slayer - The Slayer Collection: Faith" and "Buffy The Vampire Slayer - The Slayer Collection: Willow" and "Buffy The Vampire Slayer - The Slayer Collection: Angel" and "Buffy The Vampire Slayer - The Slayer Collection: Spike" and "Best of Buffy" DVDs published in February.

    So, my joke above was right!

    what the fudge is this all about, where are Buffy season 7 and Angel season 4 on R2 DVD?

    Angel Season 4 (R2) has a release date of 01/03/2004 but I dont know if that is fixed or is it will slip.

    Also, believe I read somewhere that TV Shows shown in the US have to wait 5 years before they can be released on VHS or DVD, that is why they are so far behind on everything but dont know if that is still true.

    I am not sure of what the exact time delay is, but it is due to TV syndication in the USA - after a show has been broadcast on it's own Newtork it is syndicated out on to other local networks, and so is held back from DVD release until these deals expire.

    Is that not 5 April 2004?

    Although, Indiana Jones pointed out Angel was 01/03/2004 before my post. :)

    Certainly seems to be the cheapest, almost everwhere else is £49.99.
