    Well, since it's been stated that the Season 1 DVD will start with "Home is Where the Spark Is", this "movie" is necessary to get the complete TFA experience.

    And those bonus shorts are just sweet, sweet gravy...

    Interesting on the shorts. Don't know quite what to expect on them. Just guessing though, I seriously doubt there would be new material specifically animated for the DVD, so my guess is they are probably teaser clips from season 1 episodes to make the kids want the season 1 DVD set - or watch the show. Another possibility is the extras might be some of the pre-show test animation sequences heard about at Botcon (one example of which is the 'tunnel' sequence that appears in snips for the opening titles, and originally ending with Sari's tricycle converting into a jetpack), but that doesn't seem too likely to me.

    damn it, i would so get this if it came in a nice wide screen format like they said they animated the show in. full screen on a dvd is just insulting.

    But that's not supporting the series to well now is it?

    If I have money to spare(after buying the toys) I'll buy this and the box sets.

    Thank you, agree 100 percent. Kudos to the Venture Bros. team getting smart and going HD Widescreen for season three.

    I hate how bumblebee is so advertised on the fronts. Its sorta makes up for it by the fact that Optimus is teabagging him.

    A number of reasons:

    1. You can watch it on a nice, big television screen instead of a tiny little youtube window.

    2. Clean, crisp quality. No pixelated junk that comes from uploading and no pixerlated "ghosts" that happen when thyey air.

    3. The extras, specifically the shorts.

    4. If you live in a house with multiple people and one's on the computer, you can watch this anywhere you have a DVD player and a TV.

    5. You'll have these forever. Who knows, maybe once the DVDs come out CN will take all the Animated eps off Youtude due to copyright laws.

    There are additional reasons, but these are the main ones. They're also why I'm getting this and the seasonal DVDs when they come out.

    and there's the fact that good DVD sales might give CN more incentive to do more seasons.

    Evidently people in show business (especially Transformers) don't know what light years mean.

    Throughout Armada and Energon, they kept referring to 'light years' as a measurement of time, not distance.

    Entertainment is a priviledge not a right.

    I'm very anti pirating TV or films. When shows get cancelled and movies go lower in budget never worry you can always get that crap on youtube right.

    If you like a show or film support it and buy the dvds this is how the industry survives.

    And as an aside I would much rather watch a dvd version of things on my large screen tv than my computer.

    Thanx

    P.S. do I really have to mention that I will be buying all things TF:A. I'm one of the majority :)
