I don't understand why they do this! I had some ideas for some funny Fringe fan-videos to make, and I really wanted to rewatch the first season before the second started airing. I just don't get the business plan that says releasing DVD sets just over a week before the start of a new season is best.

Andrew, send me an email about your ideas.

Don't forget you can watch the last 11 Fringe episodes online for free at either or

I was hoping for an earlier release as well. I don't want to spend 16 hours out of a single week to catch up on all the episodes, which I was really hoping to do.

The covers are really good looking, I'll especially like the lenticular (which is a word I just learned about, reading this post) aspect of it.

Can't wait!

'Gene the cow montage'
that is so unbelievably amazingly awesome it's unreal. I can't believe they're doing that, if they got any more win, the universe'd either explode or get sucked into a black hole made of geeky-cow winness.

I was honestly expecting an August release date! I guess they care about their fans less than I thought they did.
