I met with Bryan Cranston in Albuquerque while he was filming Breaking Bad last month and I had mentioned the boxset coming out, he wasn't aware about it which kind of surprised me.

Territorial restrictions so to speak? Great to let us know. Did you just run into him, or were you aware he would be on the set or thereabouts?

Unhappy S1 DVD release postponed by another six months?!

Another mail from Amazon last week:

Quote:
Hello,

Unfortunately, the release date for the item(s) listed below was changed by the supplier, and we need to provide you with a new estimated delivery date based on the new release date:
Frankie Muniz, et al "Malcolm in the Middle - Season 1 [DVD]"
Estimated arrival date: January 04 2013 - January 09 2013
This is really, really hard to swallow. What's going on? Unexpected copyright issues? Aren't we supposed to be informed about major schedule changes?

Rich

That's because Amazon are using their placeholder date of December 31. It's likely to come out long before then. It just means Amazon don't have a specific release date.

Sounds plausible. Let's hope so. The Fabulous site now gives September 3 as release date.

One thing I've learned from my work is that you should never announce release or completion dates when you're not really sure you can come up with something. It sounds unprofessional and customers may lose faith and give up on the product altogether if it's put off time and again. On the other hand, I know delays are all too common for projects and such, due to the involvement of many parties we mostly don't know of, so let's just wait and see.

I've sent them an e-mail to ask whether they actually do. Who knows maybe the DVD has been published and accidentally sent to them but Fab Films are holding out until September 3rd for hope of more pre-orders... Maybe? Or is that a long shot? Anyway, we'll soon find out.

A potential upside is that with all these delays maybe work is going on for the future seasons, maybe we'll get them every one or two months rather than having large gaps between them? As long as I see Season 2 on DVD before Christmas then I finally be able to rest easy after 10 long years of doubt. :'D

Okay so now Fab Films are saying September 3rd, but amazon, play, zavvi etc are all saying September 24th, so I'd say that roughly translates to a November release! Yay!
