Unfortunately no pre-orders yet.
It's disappointing that not all the Short Treks were included, but it's good that they are including the 2 most relevant (to Discovery season 2) mini episodes. I guess they want to release the full Short Treks season separately.
Pretty underwhelming. I'll definitely wait to catch it on sale.
IDK - it would be (IMO) ridiculous to sell te 1 hour worth of Short Treks done to date as a 'Season'.
Disappointed they aren't including all the Short Treks. Maybe they will do a seperate Short Treks release later
They're trying to get people to double-dip intentionally. They're sneaky about how they do it too. By not putting "Calypso" in the Season 2 Set, it's their way of making sure people buy the separate Short Treks set that eventually comes out.
I remember Mad Men Season 6 didn't include Commentary Tracks for the episodes. Every other season did. Then, magically, S6 had the commentaries in the Series Set. I bought all the season sets up until Season 6. So now, in order to have the commentaries for S6, I would've had to have bought the Series Set, which would've been the equivalent of re-purchasing five seasons I already owned. Chicanery at its finest.
Otherwise, I'm looking forward to the Disco Season 2 Blu-Ray. Just that one thing disappoints me.
I could see maybe holding "Calypso" for season three if it has something to do with that story. But "The Escape Artist"? That is the Short Trek I actually want.
The Short Treks were interesting, but completely forgettable by my measure.
Their inclusion or absence wouldn't sway my desire for this set one way or the other
the Short Treks add up to an hour of content. That would be really sneaky, to make people fork out for a seperate release, but it wouldn't surprise me
In college, I bought The Animatrix on DVD. It came out the same time as the Matrix sequels. They had a bunch of animated shorts based off the films. What I hope they do is release a collection of Short Treks when they've amassed enough of them. Similar to what the Animatrix set was. That one was made up of nine short films, totaling 101 minutes.
Four S1 shorts, four S2 shorts, and two animated shorts just might push Short Treks up to The Animatrix's total run time.
