    For $46, I'm really worried about the way the discs are packaged inside the box. They may just be stacked on a spindle inside there with no housing or inner case. I know that Sanford and Son, Good Times, Married With Children are all terribly packaged complete series that are cheap in price.
    If it is packaged properly I'm all for it. I always hated the how radically different each individual box set was. You put them together on shelf, and you would think there are four different seires according to the spine.

    I can not see charlie's angels selling for $46. I can see it priced at 95-110 for the set. You may be able to get the complete set on sale in a few years when price typically drop.

    That really is the Amazon pre-order price:
    http://www.amazon.com/Charlies-Angels-Complete-John-Forsythe/dp/B008H6GHII/ref=sr_1_8?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1342975601&sr=1-8&keywords=charlie%27s+angels+complete+series
    You can see that the other seasons are discounted to about $10 too. Obviously they feel this is where the price needs to be to sell quantity.

    But you forget... Sony does their complete series sets dirt cheap, in cardboard packaging with all the discs packed on a spindle.
    So, 46 bucks does sound right if you compare it to other longrunning Sony series like King of Queens or Married With Children. And the price looks even better when you consider that they're printing new S5 discs to go with the set instead of being able to just re-use the old ones.

    Yup. That is what I'm thinking too. This may have an atrractive outer case but inside will be a pity.

    I think the best packaged Sony complete series I've ever seen was the one released by Shout... The Complete Barney Miller. The box was still fairly small thanks to the use of cases that stored 6 or so discs per case, and best of all, everything was protected much better than just stacking the discs on top of each other.
    Hopefully, Sony will go that route with their upcoming complete series releases instead of continuing with just stacking the discs.

    I just want them to release S5 separately as I held off buying S1-S4 fo this exact reason, so let's hope the studio does the right thing and offers an alternative from having to buy the entire series, especially for those that got the first four seasons already and make S5 a seperate item.

    Yeah, but at 46 bucks for the entire series, one could sell off their S1-S4 sets for five bucks apiece, use the money to help fund buying the complete series set, and still probably wind up paying around the same price, or less for the entire series than the single S5 set would cost.
    However, I do agree that a nice, cheap, bare bones S5 set for people who don't want to go through the hassle of selling stuff off or re-buying sets would be nice to see.

    Forget it. Unless season 5 is released individually, I'm not double dipping for this. Sorry, I like my individual season sets. I know Sony does this on the cheap. I don't feel like rewatching the entire series just to make sure the discs are playable and then hassle of selling off the extras. To much of a pain.

    I just bought Season 4 last week! I figure it only took a few years for Season 4 to come out. 5 will come out as an individual season eventually.

    I will not be buying the complete series just to get season 5. I bought all 4 previous seasons. Will wait for a season 5 set. I am still working my way thoriugh season 2 anyway.

    If by some slim chance that I do get this, I will take out the season 5 discs and sell off the rest of the set. I won't get rid of my previous sets. They are too nicely packaged and the chance that this is going to be some super cheap packaging really worries me.

    The webmaster at Charliesangels.com states the packaging contains over 80 photos which means it can't be one of those cheap cases like GOOD TIMES, SOAP etc. came in when Sony released the Complete Series of those.
    You can see the front of the box at the above link.

    The Barney Miller style packaging makes more sense with "over 80 photos" mentioned.

    I have been a fan of all of the Angels since they started in 1976, however the only way I would purchase season 5 (or the complete series box) is if the Season 5 Premiere episode was in its original 3 hour format.
    The original airing had the first story (Julie's intro) running about 2hours and 15min (with commercials, etc) and then they were off to Hawaii and the next 45 minutes were about Kris getting kidnapped. The season 5 premiere syndicated episodes cut out a lot of footage from the Julie intro segment to fit into 2 one hour syndicated blocks. Another reason for wanting the original airing, is each season premiere of Charlies Angels had an opening credit sequence unique to that premiere episode. The season 5 has been shown only once during that original airing. Also the original title was "Of Street Models and Hawaiian Angels".

    It'll depend on the packaging whether I get this release or not, I don't have any of the other seasons yet so maybe it'll be worth it. Maybe not, no cardboard stuff for me that is. Could be a R2 release is coming too, that one might have subtitles I believe R1 Sony doesn't.

    ME-TOO in Chicago have been airing the Season 5 episodes but in whacked-out order as of late, and managed to tape 12 of the 17 episodes they aired but would rather have them compete as a Season 5 box set, just another option for all those who spent their hard-earned money to get the first four seasons, is all I'm saying.

    For $46 I'm likely to just say screw it and order the set. Just annoyed that they couldn't be bothered to release the last, truncated season separately especially because the people that would most want it are the people that already bought the last 4 (and season 4 of this show was absolutely atrocious to me). 17 eps should have an msrp of $30 and a street price around $20- so $26 extra for material I just don't need. Not cool, Sony.
