    Is there anything new??

    Are they actually worth buying again or are all the special features the same from the previous releases?

    I'm unsure about special features, but the Complete Series boxset does have Seasons 1 and 2 in the widescreen format they were animated in, rather than the cropped 4:3 aspect ratio of the previous releases.

    Having done a little digging, it seems the only extras on the boxset are audio commentaries on the episodes "Garbage In, Garbage Out" and "Transwarped", which I think were released previously?

    So yeah, the only real draw to re-buy S1&2 is the 16:9 picture.

    Yeah, it's just the two commentary tracks.
    No shorts, no nothin'.

    Transwarped is split into the three individual episodes.

    Amazon IS offering the whole series for $22.00 (plus tax/shipping) currently. So at least the price is fair. Are there Shout Factory versions of Seasons 1/2 by themselves yet? I thought the only way to get them from Shout was to buy the whole series set.

    I think just buying the complete series set is the best option.

    As others have said, you'll get seasons 1 and 2 in widescreen.

    And not only that, but it saves a lot of shelf space when you have all six discs of the whole series in one regular-sized DVD box.
