MSCL may be gone from the tv screen, but there are lots of good (and bad) new productions airing each week. Talk with other MSCL fans about your favorite shows or the shows you hate. Of course you can also discuss TV show DVD releases here.

Then I happened to see a cart filled with new shipments and Angel S2 was on it. Guess shipments were delayed to them due to the holiday weekend. Maybe that was the problem at Costco, candygirl.
Cool,

I just got mine in the mail today. Whohoo! Our current mailman is either an A-type personality or loves to vent on packages. He does his best to cram all into our small box. So the box was a bit smushed but the discs are fine.

I still currently working on my Babylon 5 (season 3), Buffy (season 4) and Angel (season one) marathon. Soon as I am done with that, on to Angel Season 2.

:D

Very sad that. I definate felt that Quinn's character had much more that could have been done. Would have been interesting to see how Doyle would have dealt with the heavy stuff the Fang Gang ran into later on in Seasons 3 & 4.

That being said I think the addition of Wesley was a brillant move.

It is too bad about Doyle, and that would make sense, candygirl. He did seem like a character that should have stayed on for a while.

Damn you Lance, I just get S2 and you are already making me want S3 and S4 :evil: :lol:

So I finished S1 last night, but didn't get a chance to watch any of S2 yet. Tonight. I thought the S1 finale was a little anti climactic, but it did get me curious to see what is in store for S2...I just couldn't keep my eyes open anymore so I had to pass on watching any.

Of course I opened my S2 set and the Buffy curse strikes again. My disc 1 was loose, didn't look like it was really scratched. Only a very minor looking scratch or two on it, so I think I am going to play it and see if it skips. If it does I will return it. If not...no biggie then. I don't feel like dealing with BB again :? I wish Fox would figure out a way to fix this issue already.

Yup, and it's always disc 1. I really dislike the packaging they have chosen - the plastic disc holder is almost completely off the cardboard from S3, and that is the set that I had to return three times to get a scratch-free disc 1. The fold out packaging is cool the first time you see it, but it's a pain in the ass when you just want to get out one disc without squatting on the floor and unfolding the whole darn thing. I love the mini-cases they used for the Family Guy because I can take out one disc without a big production AND it takes up less space on my shelf. Why don't the DVD people (and everyone else) just do what I want? :wink:

I agree that it seemed Doyle would be on the show a little longer, if only to endear us to him further before ripping our hearts out - especially since he was such a new character (they originally planned to use Whistler from Becoming, but he had another commitment or scheduling conflict). Doyle was just becoming interesting and then pfffft. Given the circumstances of Glenn Quinn's real death, it looks like Joss made the right decision. Then again, maybe staying on the show would have given him a reason to straighten out. Who knows?

I can't wait to get my AtS S2 in the mail - if I watch one episode every night, I will finish just in time for the S5 premiere!

He he. He's hooked. Granted this hobby will cost you, but hey it will be worth it.

Yes,

I too have suffered from the curse of the Buffy Region One Packaging. Always, always my disc one comes loose. Fortunately my discs have never been scratched, so far.

Think we have it bad, I feel sorry for those people who buy Buffy & Angel in Region 2. My friend here buys his stuff from blackstar. The cardboard sleeves are so tight, once the disc is out you can't get them back in.

My favorite DVD packing so far has been with Babylon 5. These sets feature a book type format. Each DVD is mounted on a plastic "page". You don't have to unfold the whole set to get the DVD you want.

Ahhhh, after a craptacular day at work, I arrived home (at 8pm :x ) to find my deepdiscountdvd order waiting for me! I was getting a little worried/annoyed because I ordered last Tuesday and whenever I checked my account, it said my order was "in process." I will still be able to watch all of S2 before S5 begins - woo hoo! I love S2 - Darla is so great, and it's the pre-Connor era. Plus Lorne - I love him!

Last night all I watched were the featurettes - tonight I begin S2 and I will finish the season on September 30. Talk about perfect timing! :D

I have finished the first disc of S2. I am not as into the show yet as I was for S1, hoping it will pick up. I am also hoping that they bring Darla out into the "open" soon I enjoy her but I fear that this arc will take too long to play out. I am sick of the dreams already.

Still not a bad show though.

Yes, October 1.

Hang in there fnordboy - once Darla shows up in the flesh, it gets pretty good!

Yep watched the first ep on the second disc last night and she is in the flesh. It was a better episode. :)

Glenn Quinn played Doyle, who received vision from TPTB and assisted Angel in his mission to help the hopeless. He only appeared in S1. Cordy became vision girl when Doyle left.
