Today was supposed to be a fantastic day. I was supposed to wake up to an e-mail that said my copy of The Boiling Point was on it’s way. Instead I woke up to an e-mail that practically said Amazon has no idea when in the hell it will be shipped.
Yesterday reports started coming in that the release of the Season 10: Part 1 dvd was going to be delayed. Amazon.ca initially changed the release date from May 17th to May 24th in Canada, but now it’s at May 31st. A majority of the majority U.S. retailers now say the release date is May 31st as well (except for Buy.com, who’s just saying the dvd is “temporarily sold out”).
Amazon.com still has the release date set as today, but they’re now saying shipping may take 3 to 5 weeks. So if you pre-ordered with them as I did, they could basically ship the dvd anytime now….though it’s best to just assume it won’t be shipped until May 31st at the earliest.
We don’t really know the reason why the boxset has been delayed, and at the very last minute to say the least. Stephen Stohn couldn’t even get a straight answer from the U.S. distributor, Echo Bridge Entertainment. I joked yesterday that the reason for the delay was because they had to redo the boxset cover because of all the complaints about EClare:
Oh yeah, Stephen said that Season 10: Part 2 will probably be released in September…but who really knows.
