It's coming 2/15/2011. At this rate, all 5 seasons will be out by the end of summer 2011.

As you can see, Image went with a green color scheme this time around (after blue for season 1, and red for season 2). What colors will grace seasons 4 and 5, I wonder? Yellow, probably.... but what else? Orange? Purple? Please, not purple. Um.... plaid???

Man, I haven't even posted my review/spotlight of the season 1 set yet... I should probably get on that, eh?

Isn't that going to be hard since you can't get any of your disc 4's to work eh Craig?

Disc 4 doesn't work in my PS3, but it plays fine in both my newer Samsung BD-C6500 and my old Sony BDP-S300. I will definitely be addressing the problems when I spotlight the season 1 set.
