While we're on the subject of this show, we'll acknowledge something that we've gotten a ton emails about from many of you out there. Your notes have all been saying "Hey, 'The World's Greatest Super Friends - Season 4: And Justice For All
' on DVD is already available!" Yes, we know, but it's exclusively out at just one brick-and-mortar chain for now, and we don't cover those kinds of releases. The studios don't provide us with info about titles for these exclusives, the retailers who do it don't seem to want the other retailers to particularly know about it, and both we and most of our readers don't think these kinds of "promotions" are good for consumers. So we only cover a title once it's been scheduled for a general "wide" retail release. With the fifth season now announced, hopefully we'll get word soon that this fourth-season item is also going to be on the way to any store which wants to sell it. Please stay tuned until if and when we get that announcement!
