    Likely a good part of it. Heck, I heard Bonnie Hammer even got her car wrapped (which was a very cool method of advertising, I thought).

    Hell, I just wish they'd fix the errors on that site that I told them about 7 years ago. Under Beings, check out the pictures for Neroon and William Morgan Clark. For Neroon, the picture is of Tannier from "Learning Curve" and for Clark the picture is of Sheridan's first interrogator from "Intersections in Real Time." Over the last 7 years, I've told them about the problem three times, and it's still not fixed.
    Sounds kind of par for the course, I'm afraid. Wasn't it their message boards that were rather unceremoniously shut down some time back? I remember trying many times to register there back during the TMoS campaign and never succeeding. At least this time JMS has a web site that we can go to if the official one doesn't do a good job.

      The fact that SFC handled the pre-publicity for LotR is hardly an indictment of WB' attitude to anything B5. SFC were the distributors, SFC were the ones who wanted to get the word out so that viewers would watch it and bring in advertising revenue, therefore isn't it logical that they would handle the bulk of (if not all) the marketing.

      TLT is being distrubuted by WB direct, therefore this time the marketing will be down to them. The Direct-to-DVD thing is a new venture for them, they want customer to take note and buy the disks so it is in their best interests to market it as best they can.

      Still too early right now though.

          Yes.

          The nearest comparison would be to their marketing of the B5 and Crusade DVD sets.

            Which I think they did a decent job of. I remember those ads popping up in every comic book I read for awhile at least heh.

              And that's OK, if you read comic books. Me, I quit reading comic books regularly about 38 to 40 years ago, so I didn't see any of those ads. However, I knew about the releases through http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/ and from following the news online.

                  both "new" formats can go jump in the swamp... i`m sticking with dvd till a format providing a greater technological leap comes along.

                        I'm not so sure it's new features so much as the enhanced picture quality of HD. But the wisdom seems to be that there's no great hurry to run out and buy a machine, even at the drastically reduced prices, until A) the companies get rid of all the hardward/software bugs, and B) one format knocks the other one out of the market and the studios agree on one format. Anybody who's got an old box of Betamax tapes in their attic will probably agree.

                          Speaking of, I now have successfully recorded all of B5 on Betamax, anyone interested?

                            currently... absolutely nothing.

                            i have a 20" widescreen monitor and no inclination to purchase an insanely large television for my home, hence no need for a HD format at all.

                            i remember betamax.. mechanically it was a pig compared to vhs.

                              It's amazing how history repeats its self. First there was the Beta vs VHS battle. Beta was far better quality which was even used by many television stations, but VHS won in the market place probably for the long recording time compared to Beta. Then there was Laser Disc and DVD. We all know DVD won out. Actually Babylon 5 was even released on Laser Disc far before it was released on DVD. I'm sure all those who purchased all those Laser Discs are slightly pissed off now, having to purchase the series on DVD. Now there's the battle between Blue Ray and HD DVD.
                              Personally I've put off purchasing either player because if I did, I'd be stuck with various discs from one player that can't be played on which ever player wins out.
                              I think alot of people are holding off also.

                                I think that the Blue Ray/HD competition is going to come to a close much faster than Beta/VHS, specifically because so many people are holding off because of the Beta/VHS fiasco.

                                It appears that Blue Ray is fairly quickly picking up momentum. Unless something dramatic happens in the next few months to swing the balance, I think we will see Blue Ray take over the market within the next year.

                                Until that happens, though, I'm in the "I'm waiting until the dust settles" camp.
