Moral Orel comes to DVD next year
In the beginning, Dino Stamatopoulos created Moral Orel, and it was good.
Anyway, if you read my interview with Dino, you know that at some point Moral Orel would be getting the versatile digital treatment, and Warner Bros. has just announced that Volume 1 will be in stores March 20, 2007. The set will include fifteen episodes, and I'm going to assume that means the ten episodes that comprised season one plus the first five episodes from season two (Dino also told me in an e-mail that'll most likely be the case). I tend to like my DVD sets in seasons rather than volumes, but when the episodes are only about 11 minutes long sans commercials, this approach does make more sense. No official word yet on extras, though Dino tells me they have recorded commentaries for the episodes.
The set will retail for $29.98, which may seem like an arbitrary price, but if we look at the numbers in the price as "Genesis chapter 29, verses 8 and 9," we get this quote: "And they said, We cannot, until all the flocks be gathered together, and they roll the stone from the well's mouth; then we water the sheep. And while he yet spake with them, Rachel came with her father's sheep: for she kept them."
In other words, moisten your sheep, because then you can then pop them in the dryer and shrink them, making them easier to carry around. This is just one of many agricultural tips found within the enigma that is Moral Orel. Those who seek the truth shall be rewarded.
