Season #0[edit]

it would appear that this was treated as "season 0" or not a season; The bracketed numbers after episode titles listed here indicate broadcast seasons accurately except for the filmisodes with BBSp1 being 001 rather than 601. Additionally, this refers to 6ACV it as season 6. I'll wait until Saturday when the schedule will include Rebirth (601), but I believe that we'll need to change up the broadcast listing and all the other places. - Quolnok 02:42, 3 June 2010 (CEST)

Well, Rebirth and IaGdL are officially broadcast numbers 601 and 602 according to Comedy central. Do we make the change? - Quolnok 09:06, 4 June 2010 (CEST)
I am still split on this issue. One part of me says outright no, because it doesn't make sense to make the broadcast season of season 5 into an 'non-existing' season. I think the real reason behind Comedy Central's decision is that they got confused by the producers and creators behind the show were talking about a sixth season and they thought they already had one (I know for a fact, that during the early days of them broadcasting the films, they were season 6).
On the other hand, broadcast seasons is about picking what the broadcasters decided to go with. Even if they fuck up, right? --Sviptalk 11:37, 4 June 2010 (CEST)
That's a good theory. Perhaps it's simply that four batches of four episodes, aired on the same night, with months between each group are more accurately described as specials rather than a season. A season traditionally being a continuous weekly or weekdaily airing schedule, with possible weeks off due to news or sporting events or holidays and no more than one prolonged mid-season break. I do like that this brings the production codes and broadcast numbers back in line, and I think it is up to CC to decide these numbers. - Quolnok 13:19, 4 June 2010 (CEST)

Blu-ray[edit]

Are the first two films going to be released on Blu-ray? Lordqaz 07:37, 10 January 2011 (CET)

I asked myself the same question when I pre-ordered Volume 5 on BD a few weeks ago. Still don't know the answer. I guess that info's just not out yet. Sanfazer 18:35, 10 January 2011 (CET)

Wait...[edit]

Is this the only entire season where broadcast order is faithful to production order?--Icyweaner2999 20:42, 30 July 2011 (CEST)
