Skyland Episodes 1 & 2, and lastest poll

A few weeks back, I ran a poll to know if any of you would be interested in buying the Skyland animation series if it ever came on DVD. Well it seems that quite a lot of you would, so you'll be happy to hear that the series is being released in France this fall, though there is no news on the North-American market or elsewhere. Guess we'll just have to wait for that. If you have any news on it, please let me know.

Back to the poll results now. So here are the results after running the poll over a 2 weeks period:

    • What the hell is Skyland? - 13% (2)
    • Maybe, if the price is right - 13% (2)
    • Maybe, if the rest of the series is as good - 13% (2)
    • Most likely - 13% (2)
    • Definitely - 50% (8)
Looks like this would be a hot item! I do realize that I did not have the choice to say that you would not be buying the DVD series at all. What can I say, this whole polling thing is new to me! I will next time I promise.

Finally, I've had quite a lot of emails and posts asking me where one could get the first two episodes of the series. As I mentioned in this post a few months back, Nicktoons had made available the initial two episodes. But for some reason, they removed them. Lucky for me (and you), I downloaded both back then. And so, I was able to email them using Pando to a few of you. But, the demand has been so great that it no longer is convenient for me to use that utility.

Last week I came across Box.net, a great site that offer online storage. And so over the week-end I uploaded both episodes, and you can now download them yourselves! One thing though, I've to subscribed to the service ($5/month) in order to be able to upload the episodes which are about 130Mb each. The five bucks a month gives me 5Gb of space and 20Gb of bandwidth monthly. As write this, I have no clue as to how quickly I'll go though that. We''l just have to see. So here are the two links:

Please let me know if you run into any trouble trying to download either of them. You can also drop me a comment or an email to say thanks and Hi!

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for the links. I hope to see this series out on DVD in North America as well. The 13th and final episode of the first season should be broadcast soon. Also I should hope for it's release in English as it is a Canada/France co-production. :)

Cheers,
Frittz

Glad to be of help! If the DVD does come out in NA, I'm confident it will be in English also, since the series airs in the States, Australia and English Canada.

I'll be pissed mad if it doesn't come out though! =)

I absolutely LOVE Skyland, it is my favorite show in the world. I am sooooo obsessed with it! I've been on basicly every site on the planet that has to do with Skyland and I've seen all the episodes a zillion times. When it comes out on DVD I will DEFINATLY buy it. It would make a great movie too. Great website by the way.
Cheers!
