Sam & Max the animated series DVD

posted by Javi-Wan Kenobi on - last edited - Viewed by 778 users

I think I did this question somewhere earlier, but now I can't find the answer.

Does the Sam & Max animated series DVD have subtitles? Not even translations, but just English subtitles?
I think the answer was no, the DVD hasn't no subtitles at all, but I want to be sure.
I don't want to buy it if I won't be able to understand it. My English comprehension so far doesn't allow me to understand some spoken stuff (specially when it's fast spoken and using slang, as Sam & Max is) without subtitles.

  • hey, that's pretty cool. but I like the box art, like on the box, not the slip covers. but still, nice!

    It just doesn't compute...

    It makes a lot of sense when you learned a language by reading books in it and using the Internet. Also, French and English are pretty close when you look at them, but pronounced very differently.
    My father is a very good example of that. He reads books in English, writes in English without a problem, but just a few years ago I heard him talk and for instance he pronounced the word "dead" as "deed", and other things like that, that are pretty big mistakes.
    There is also still a very big number of words that I have only seen written and never heard spoken. It was only recently that someone pronounced the word "leopard" and that I said I didn't know that word, until from their explanation (it's a big cat with spots, etc), I got what they meant. In my head I had always pronounced it "lee-oh-pard" and certainly not "lepperd".

    When I moved to Canada, I started being able to understand some people perfectly. But I also realised that everyone speaks differently. I never noticed in French, probably because it's my first language, but basically I have to learn how everyone speaks, even from the same family. When I first hear them I rarely understand them, it's like every person has their own very specific accent and their own intonations that take time getting used to.

    Plus, in the Sam & Maw series, they speak very fast.

  • Yeah, and a lot of Sam and Max's speech are slurred and garbled. I actually may need some second opinions on some lines...

    Yeah I still utilize the slip case I just put the new 3disc dvd case in there instead of the two separate slim cases..

  • This reminds me of that thread in 2007 where Laserschwert did a slip cover for Sam & Max Hit the Road. Yeah. This one. Not that I was around here in 2007.

    This doesn't apply to other languages? [or, at least French, for that matter? Oh, apparently not.]


    I'm also really surprised to learn that your listening comprehension isn't great, because of your writing, but it makes sense. Also explains why you're so strict about grammar, lol. :)

    I've tried to keep from using words like 'kinda, wanna, dunno, sorta' and stuff like that on these forums as to not confuse people, but I can't help it sometimes. :)

    You really just dropped your whole "Im just a boy who doesnt know what copyright is" phase and jumped right into "Im going to make a living virtual hell out of whatever I post" phase.
