The State on DVD

Some of you know. Some of you know and don’t care. Some of you neither know, nor care, but I’m feeling great right now and want to share this.

I’ll have you know I’m in a really good mood this morning due to looking this stuff up right now.

Rumors about The State coming to DVD have been around for a long time, but my knowledge of the confirmation has only been solidified recently. I’d probably known for at least a month or two (thanks Lindsay!), but then forgot about it because it had been just a rumor for so long.

Here’s what’s up. THE STATE IS COMING TO DVD.

From Wiki:
The State’s official website reported in November that the DVD set was completed, but that their distributor, MTV, has “chosen not to release the set at this time. We don’t know why.”[5] As of January 29, 2008, Michael Showalter has confirmed that MTV is still delaying the release: “They have it. We’ve made the DVD, and it exists. It’s out of our hands, and I know who has it, but I don’t know why they’re waiting… we’ve done the commentary and the deleted material and all that stuff, but I just don’t know when it’s coming out. “[6] The State’s official FAQ currently states:
“There is NO WAY to get any episodes of The State on tape, unless you trade with other fans or buy bootlegs on eBay. The only other recourse is to beg MTV to rerun the show or to release episodes on video. Try writing MTV Home Video, 1515 Broadway, NY NY 10036, or MTV Programming Dept, same address. Or write to Comedy Central, 1775 Broadway, NYC, 10019.”[3]

If you’re a fan of Reno911 or Kids In The Hall or just good sketch comedy, MARK YOUR CALENDARS: July 14, 2009! Just in time to work up a good hangover for the sixth Harry Potter movie coming out the next day. 😉
