    Yeah, I called Best Buy to see if they had it, and was really surprised to hear that they didn't. The salesguy I spoke to sounded really surprised that they didn't have it in stock, also. He was thinking that maybe the release date had gotten pushed back or something, which also seemed odd. So, I ended up getting mine at Target, also.

    Another extremely unhappy BestBuy customer here. I had been looking forward to this all day and went down to BestBuy this evening since it's the closest place to my house and was really disapointed it wasn't there. Now I have to wait until tomorrow and go downtown.

    I got mine at Wal-Mart tonight for $38. I'm going to start watching a few episodes tonight right before I go to bed.

    Found mine at Target yesterday. I have already watched the bonus features and really enjoyed them. I espcially liked the new version of Follow Me on the Jerry Juhl tribute. It brough tears to my eyes. The Uncle Matt sketches were great too. I was laughing so hard. So far definitly the dvd set most worth my money that has come out this year.

    She's partially correct - the show was taped as four "seasons", but the final taping block (Oct 85 - May 86; 24 shows; "Sprocket's Big Adventure" to "Change Of Address") was split into two runs for transmission in the US, airing a year apart (86 & 87). The shows "Wembley's Wonderful Whoopee Water" and "Sidebottom Blues" were held over from the third taping block and aired in the fourth run (which is presumably why they are the only episodes in that run not to have on-screen title captions).

    The UK airings were split into six runs which didn't bear much relation to the US airing order.

    Yeah I stopped at Best Buy to check the price but they didn't have it either. That really surprises me because BB tends to have a big selection.
    I got mine at Meijers...if anyone has one near them it is only $32.99 plus tax. (on sale this week)

    Got my set at Wal*Mart first thing yesterday, well, when I got off from work that is. Was only $38.74, and they only got 4 copies!!!

    Not enough to spread the word methinks, but hopefully the other fans in my town will be able to pick one up.

    Watched the bonus disk first, sad about Jerry. His wife must be one tough cookie to be able to hold it together for what looked to have been a long interview (cut into segments of course). Like everybody else, loved the memorial rendition of "Follow Me" that the performers sang, very moving. The wife and I laughed a lot during Travelling Matt's bits from around the world. And I even told her about the lighthouse, how Kermieuk got to talk to the owners a little 'bout Fraggle Rock.

    Awesome set overall, watched the first couple shows, and maybe 3 or 4 a week until I'm ready to watch my new favorites for a second time! :excited:

    Best Buy didn't have copies in on Tuesday, but I went directly to Virgin Megastore afterwards and they DID have it in. So far, I'm loving it! :)

    Best Buy Bonus?

    Does anyone know if Best Buy has a bonus...umm... anything to go along with FR Season 2? Perhaps like the way they had that bonus CD-ROM packed in with their Fraggle Rock Season 1 DVD set? Anyone know? I haven't heard anything myself. :smirk: :excited:

    I think Kathryn Mullen ( a.k.a. Mokey ) was present during Mr. Balsam's updated version of " Follow Me " during the Jerry Juhl tribute. Was that her? . I've been kinda worried she became a recluse or something.:smirk: :excited:

    I've been watching quite a bit, and I think HIT has done another great job with this set. It's wonderful!

    Just like last fall, I think it might be a really nice gesture to send a short note to HIT thanking them for the great Season 2 set, for continuing Fraggle seasons on DVD and to let them know we're all eagerly awaiting an equally great Season 3 set.

    I think it's great, just waiting on the last two seasons. The series finale is always a tear jerker for me, and I can't wait to have it on DVD. :)

    Yay! It came in the mail! Yay!!!!

    Ok, so far all I've watched is "Fraggle Wars", Steve' Home Movie and the Season 2 overview.

    Thankfully, "Fraggle Wars" was the fantastic episode I hoped it would be. For anyone who doesn't know...


    Mokey and Red are on camping trip and Mokey discovers a group of Cave Fraggles who are mean and have no sense of humor. They capture her and lock her in a cage. The Rock Fraggles (that's our guys) and the Cave Fraggles nearly go to war over their differences.

    The anti-war and anti-prejudice themes are great of course. But also, there was the sense that the Rock Fraggles represented a free and equality society, whereas the Cave Fraggles lived under a dictatorship, something we in the real world can identify with. At one point while she's in the cage, Mokey sings, "pity the soul that's not free." She's not just talking about herself, locked in a cage. She's speaking for the Cave Fraggles and anyone else who's not free to think for themselves. It was very moving.

    One more thing, as the episode starts we see Red and Mokey camping out, discussing how exciting they are to be out exploring on their own. Mokey slyly asks Red why they seem to have gone exploring in the OPPOSITE direction of Gobo (you know, implying that Red did that on purpose). It was interesting, I don't think I saw such a deep conversation between the characters in the first season. This was an indication of how the series was starting to mature.

    Steve's Home Movie was great, it was very generous of him to include it. In a way, Richard got his moment in the Bonus Features after all, despite obviously not being able to do the main interviews. It was also good to see Kathy Mullen.

    Season 2 overview was good, not as intimate or as long as Season 1, but that makes sense. People's schedules are probably very busy. Only thing, you didn't really feel Jim's presence like you did in Season 1, which had the Down in Fraggle Rock documentary.

    I was so very happy when I found a copy at Target the other day! ^_^

    One of my very favorite episodes is Wembly's Egg - the first one on the first disk! Yay! Also, like many, I was moved by hearing the revised 'Follow Me' in memory of Jerry Juhl - beautiful.
