Just curious where others are in their TV show collecting on DVD. The first TV show I bought on DVD was back in 1999 when the Emma Peel years of The Avengers were released. A favorite from my youth and given that it is not broadcast all that often I thought it would be a good one to own. After that I continued to focus on my movie collecting. In 2004 I finished a little theater room in the basement, and between watching movies and NetFlixing a few of the more current shows, I gave up regular TV viewing all together. In 2008 I found this site (and forum in particular), which opened the door to a lot of memories of my youth (late 60's and early 70's)when I used to watch whatever was on from the 50's and 60's. Having a decent movie collection already spanning the 20's to current day, classic TV opened a new revelation of material to collect and watch. That's when I bought my 2nd TV show on DVD (a nine year haitus). Probably Rawhide Season 1 (a show I never saw in syndication). Now three years later I have 200 different TV shows on DVD, of which probably only a third I had ever seen before. As I look back now it seems like a whirlwind of purchasing with some fantastic sales and discount and an ever fear of titles going OOP or that the vintage TV market might just be a short lived on DVD. Now not all my titles are from the 50's and 60's (but the majority are). I also delved into some titles I watched in the 70's and 80's growing up, as well as a few current titles. As I sit back now I find myself in a new position. While I am way behind in my watching, I feel pretty caught up on the purchasing. I'm at a point where I am just waiting for new series and new seasons of existing series to be announced. Looking at Pre-Orders and releases with minimal discounting. That made me curious as to where others are in their collecting and how they went about building their collections. This is all based on what is available and not "wish lists" of shows stalled or unreleased. Are you pretty much caught up with your purchasing, or do you have a long way to go? Are you pretty much caught up with your viewing, or do you have a long way to go? Did you build your collection over a long period of time or did you get hit with the "bug" and just buy, buy, and buy more? How many different shows are in your collection? There are some strong opinions that show up in these threads (e.g., MOD programs, pricing strategies, best approaches to supporting this market). Knowing where someone is in the process of their collecting might shed some light on why they promote certain views. Anyways, having hit a new plateau in my collecting made me think it might be intersting to hear from others.
