  3. Tom says:

  9. TV Gord says:

    I have no interest in Netflix, so I’m looking forward to hearing when these episodes will be released on DVD.

    • Mike says:

      Maybe never, if you really want to see them, do the one month free trial starting May 26, and then cancel has soon as you’ve seen the episodes.

      • April says:

        Oh no! You think they won’t come out on DVD? How will I complete my AD set?

        • tyler40 says:

          Don’t worry, I’m sure the new episodes will come out on DVD once the online viewings have dropped off – they’d be missing out on a huge potential audience otherwise. For some reason people inside the bubble of new technology always seem to assume that everybody else is too.

    • Faster says:

      No interest in Netflix? How is that even possible?

      • rc29b1 says:

        No intrest in Netflix because hulu and amazon prime are a hundred times better. But the free trial is a good idea though
