Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes Season 5 DVD problems

Vol 5 is out now apparently, but has some pretty serious problems. First off, the eps are in production order, not air order, which means that the storyline is scrambled, and some eps are spoiled.

Secondly, only 13 eps are on these two discs, but Disney has told at least one person who wrote to them that this is the "entire" 2nd season. That is patently untrue, as S2 has some 24-25 eps. It appears Disney isn't going to finish the release (which shouldn't surprise anyone, how many shows has it done this to now?)

Does anyone have any newer or better information?

Re: Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes Season 5 DVD problems

The complete season 2 was available through other means 6 months ago (longer?) because Australia said fuck it and aired half a season in a month. The US on the other had is still airing episodes, they're only up to episode 20 last I noticed.

Maybe you're jumping the gun?

Of course they're not going to release a dvd of a show they haven't finished airing first run yet.

You could dvr the episodes as they come out/ in rerun. have you cracked your dvr and connected it to your pc?

Perhaps you should wait patiently for the tenth anniversary special Boxset which will have all the episodes in the in the correct order and dvd commentaries?

Re: Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes Season 5 DVD problems

^Don't have a dvr as I don't have cable. Can't afford it. I get a VERY select handful of shows on DVD as they come out.

Is it announced for certain that the US will get the 2nd half?

Episode s02e24 (of 26.) aired on September 25.

They can make money off these dvds so it's unlikely that the production will stop no matter the premature cancellation of the series, but you just have to be patient. Two more weeks, and the whole series is broadcast and only then can the dvd people start to get behind the ball.

Forget about DVDs. They are slowly degrading on your shelf/drawer. Amazon.com is going to rule the future. Just download everything, via your portable device. Digital content is being made available with extras, now.

To old people it's about about pretty bookshelves with boxsets.

We want to display our shit so that others will marvel and envy.

It's also about momentum.

You don't change horse half way through the race.

It's also about expense and not being able to afford a good enough computer, a good enough internet connection, etc, never mind the per download fee.

At this point, I'm waiting for them to release the entrie series as a complete dvd set.

No way I'm spending $20 for six episodes on a dvd.

Your stoner nephew who no one thinks is going to amount to anything has already downloaded them. Ring him. He'll burn you all of season 2 onto one dvd.

Yup. Or eventually someone will sell them used for $5+S&H, and then we'll talk.

In other words, be an IP pirate.

Series are downloaded by Season as well as by episode. Downloading the season is cheaper. I've got my collection building on my X-box.

Others will envy enough to borrow, and then never return. But, to each their own. I have a "progress" mindset, regardless of my age. If I could change my "horse" from loser to Seabiscuit halfway through the race, guess what?

Re: Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes Season 5 DVD problems

I like buying all my stuff on disc; I'm not depending on a studio to always allow me access to that digital copy I bought. Publishers can and will yank your access; it's already been happening with eBooks on Amazon. Then what do you have? Your money gone and no product.

If I've got a disc, I can watch it. They can't take it back from me without breaking into my house.

That said, here's hoping that Canada will do a bluray of season two; there's no hope of seeing that in the US.

Wait?

They've washed their hands of Avengers Earths Mightiest Heroes?

So sad.

Ian?

That nephew actually exists?
