    Just a reminder for those of you who can't wait for the release on Tuesday, you can hear all of the songs from Fraggle Rock Season 2 including the Jerry Juhl tribute of "Follow Me" now on Muppet Central Radio.

    Well I can't wait for the release, but I don't wanna spoil it for myself by hearin' the songs already! :p

    (I can't listen to it here at work anyway, lol)

    But yeah, MC Radio is great!

    One thing I love about the fraggle dvd sets is that they have great extras. According to the review this set comes with another replica book. I love that feature. Plus you can ONLY get it by buying the set, unlike other extras that could be copied and downloaded in some way.

    Whoopee, I got my Fraggle Rock Second Season DVD Boxset in the mail today.

    It is as great as I had hoped.

    I have so far only watched the bonus disc which is great. The new interviews talking about season 2 is great, and it was great to see the ''All Around The World'' music Video, I own the 7" vinyl and the picture disc but didnt even know about the music Video. I did however find the 20 International Matt segments a bit boring and long, probably because Matt segments are not my best bits of any Fraggle Episode.

    I did enjoy the Docs and Sprockets segment, especially of interest to me was the hunt for which lighthouse to use for the UK spot, I visited the lighthouse earlier this year so it was interesting hearing about there search in a helicopter.

    Steves home Movie is also great viewing, Thanks Steve for sharing it with us fans!!

    While watching this set however it dawned on me that something is missing?? The Fraggles?? Most Muppets DVD's have the Muppets introducing the Extras etc, it would be great to see new footage of the Fraggles for these DVD's!!?

    The Replica Book is Great. I love the early drawings of the Fraggles and seeing how they changed, this is most apparent with Matt and Jnr Gorg!! The text and ideas are also nice and how they slightly altered. It is however different to the book pictured on the back of the box, on the box the book is spiral bound and in 'landscape' format??

    Other very small differences that I noticed are on the actual box, the 'spine which holds the plastic DVD pages is a thick white sticky tape, part of the double-sided tape was hanging over the edge and sticking to the flap which held the book. It also makes turning the pages and keeping them open harder than with the clear tape in S1. Also the top and bottom of the box has a lip where it has been folded, on season 1 there is no gap as the cover is totally glued all round the box. Finally, season 1 has a matt finish to the rock area of the cover, with the Fraggles and the logos is embossed gloss. The season 2 cover is totally gloss, and the embossed doesnt seem so bold!!

    All in All though another fantastic set from Hit, they certainly take time to get this right, and it works. Another fun filled very colorful Fraggle set, it looks great displayed next to season 1.

    All I need to do now is watch the 24 episodes included, hopefully we will see Season 3, with one of my favourite eps, so far not on DVD ''The Bells Of Fraggle Rock''.

    Gahh I feellike such an idiot. A music store here is already selling it! I happened to go in because my dad went to pick up a cd, and they had it. It was so expensive I was sure I could get it cheaper at another store, so I let it pass. I'm going there tomorrow and getting it! ^_^

    I'll have to ask for it for my birthday then. That "around the world" featurrette should be interesting. Let's hope my parents pick up my (usually not-so-subtle) hints. :)

    Well, I preordered mine some time ago from the Amazon link Phill provided. I can't wait!

    so i was wondering...why isn't this set in any of the sales papers for this coming week? what's up with that. i don't know where to buy it...what to do...what to do...

    You should be able to find it in any Best Buy, Target, Wal-Mart, etc.

    I'm wondering why there seems to be no advertising too. No tv commercials, magazine or newspaper ads, nothing. Unless you search for it on the internet, I'm not sure you could even know it's coming...

  11. getup

    getup Well-Known Member

    yeah, i know the stores will have them...it's like 44.99 at bestbuy and 39.99 at circuit city according to online...hoping there can be somewhat of a sale...i have a 15 dollar gift card to bestbuy so i hope it's a little cheaper...i'll buy it regardless tomorrow...but i was wondering why there is ZERO advertising. kind of a shame. they deserve better!

    LOL, I so can't do that...when I get a box set of DVDs I watch every single episode first, and then I watch the bonus material. It's just completely wrong to do it "backwards" (i.e., your way) in my universe. ;)

    Where to Buy

    I picked this set up this morning at Target for 39.99 plus tax.
    I had already stopped by a Best Buy to check their price, since last year they had season 1 on sale its first week--but I didn't see any copies at all there! Weird. It was right after they opened--it's possible they just hadn't gotten them on the shelves, though they're supposed to take care of that before opening. But still, it's strange, since Best Buy was so supportive of the season 1 box.

    Oh, and neither place had the Fraggle Rock box listed in their weekly print ad.

    I know someone has asked this already but seeing as today is the release day...are there any extra goodies this year like the Best Buy Bonus Disk that came in Season 1? Not that it'll help me. I'm forcing the gal I go carpooling with take me shopping! Please my Debit card begs that someone take it away from me. :)

    Hi Christy... From the posting here in this thread, I believe the set comes with a bonus disc that has the interviews with the cast/crew and a tribute to Jerry Jull, not to mention the FR book included with the set. Hope this helps, I'm sure someone else can tell you exactly what the bonuses are, unless you prefer to go through the rest of this thread to find them... That is, if you haven't bought it yet and already gone through the bonuses yourself.
    Sorry if this didn't make that much sense, but you know our credo here by now.

    i went to best buy too...they had not one copy...they had about 3 of season 1 but nothing of season two at all. i got mine at target. looks like no extra bonus this time around either (i got jipped last time on that too cuz i ordered from bestbuy ONLINE thinking i would still get the bonus cd rom. i'll never do that again) but what's with bestbuy not even carrying it in the store???? and i went at noon.

    The salesperson I spoke to at Best Buy said they had none in stock and none in transit. He said you could order it on their website, however.

    So my guess is that no Best Buy location anywhere will have the sets, which is really unfortunate since a lot of people buy their DVDs there.

    I know; I went into a Best Buy this afternoon and they weren't carrying it. I'll try somewhere else later on.
