    If the numbers I've heard for the iTunes sell-through are correct, Joss has nothing to lose at this point by having them post it again for free. I've heard he's already made his money back and then some.

    Joss has plans for a 4th installment. There'll be a feature packed DVD and a soundtrack available as well.

    Don't forget the TV films, and the Broadway musical, and the theme park attractions... oh yeah, and the blimp.

    I'm sure there will also be a comic book miniseries, written by Whedon.

    Each issue of which will fall further and further behind schedule... :D

    Is this in reference to Buffy S8, et al or something else?

    Pretty much anything he does where he's on his own timetable. Astonishing X-Men is another example, I believe.

    Mostly Astonishing X-Men, though some of his post Buffy/Angel/Serenity scripts have taken longer than expected as well.

    I remember reading a quote somewhere where they said there will definitely be more comics. Not sure if they'll all be Captain Hammer-centric or not though, and I don't feel like trying to find the link again. I'm sure I found it on whedonesque.com though.

    Also, I did not hear anything about the 4th chapter, but pretty much everything the principles have said leads me to believe that they had such a good time making this, and due to its success, there will most definitely be more to the story. Would be cool to see a whole extra chapter on the DVD and it wouldn't necessarily surprise me given how much they're talking up all the extras they plan to put on it.

    Astonishing X-Men was bad, Runaways was REALLY bad. He's not writing Angel, and only select issues of Buffy.

    How does one find the sell-through numbers?

    It's not public information, as far as I've heard. Most of what I've heard is just someone doing "back of the napkin" calculations. They bounced them off of Joss, and Joss agreed that they were "pretty close." I wish I could find where I read that, but I can't. :(

    Edit: I don't think this is what or where I originally read it, but it was something close to this:

    If they were really smart, they would have only put part one up for free, and offered parts 2 & 3 for sale.

    I believe that's Penny (and Dr.Artz) on Monk on USA right now. Episode "Mr. Monk gets Drunk". (This post will be less helpful in a little while.)

    I saw the free third part. I really enjoyed this thing so he has sold at least one DVD. :)

    I wonder why he chose to release it now rather than waiting until the DVD was ready? I'll bet there are a lot of people who would have bought the DVD as an impulse buy immediately after watching all three parts (or even before). But give people a couple of weeks (or more) to cool off before the DVD is available and I'll bet the potential sales numbers drop way off.

    There are many people who will watch it who will never buy the DVD anyway, but may pay the 4 bucks to download it. Or who just missed it, but aren't going to shell out the 4 bucks or buy the DVD without seeing it first.

    It's just good exposure.

    Somewhere,...
    Does anybody with a bit more audio ability than I have any hints as to how I can get the songs in mp3 form to put on my iPod?

    As a caveat I bought the whole series from iTunes, and will buy the soundtrack as soon as it's available. I'm just not sure my sanity can handle the next few weeks of my commute if I keep humming the refrain of the Freeze Ray song and can't play the entire song! :p
