    Well . . . Guys. . . Did any of you ask for any TV DVDs from Santa this year? I asked for Wild Wild West season 4, the complete Man From Uncle set, and Bonanza set 1?

    How about you guys? And were you good enough to ask? Or do you think you have coal coming?

    I've asked for ...

    Mister Ed: Season One - I would rather have this be given to me than buying it for myself.
    Rhoda: Season One - Same as Mr. Ed
    MacGyver: The Complete First Season
    The Simpsons: The Complete Eleventh Season

    I've asked Santa for DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES Season 5. Beyond that, it's a relatively quiet Christmas regarding new TV-on-DVD sets. I've bought so many during the year, I've decided to slow it down a lot in 2010, by only getting further releases from shows I'm already collecting. I have decided I would not buy any new series in 2010, unless Warner surprises us by releasing CHINA BEACH, but I'm not holding my breath.

    I actually buy what I want during all the pre-Christmas sales and hand them to my wife to wrap and put under the tree. She *hates* this 'cause there's no suprise. I *love* it 'cause there's no suprise. So... getting:

    Planet Earth - The Complete Series
    Red Dwarf - The Complete Series
    Sliders - S4
    Friends - S1, S2, S4 (Filling in gaps from last summer's Big Lots sales)
    NewsRadio - S5 (finally picking this one up to complete the set)
    Three Stooges - V6
    The Big Bang Theory - S2

    Our "Santa" uses the Amazon Wish List since it's a public list and Santa can order from the list.

    You must have all been very good boys and girls. Don't see too much mention of coal in the stocking coming.

    Could be getting Coal.. but I would prefer Pellets so I can burn them, mighty cold up here today!

    As far as TV sets, I too usually buy what I want, I might ask for Best buy or Amazon Certificates to help that. I find TV Box sets are for the most part mostly attainable online at good prices or for that matter at all. Not too many Brick and Morters carry the ones I want, it makes it too difficult to ask for.

    Santa Claus has gone "Green" this year. Coal, when burned emits "Greenhouse Gases" so he has discontinued giving these out. Instead, all of those who have been "Bad" will receive "Reality" Show DVDs instead of Presents!

    Not necessarily from Santa, but the only item on my wishlist this year is Lost: Season 5 on Blu-ray. In the unlikely event that it cannot be found, my alternate BD is Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles - Season 2.

    And I think I added the first couple volumes of Peanuts/Charlie Brown cartoons from the 60's and 70's. Can't remember the exact titles.

    - Days That Shook The World, Season 2

    Got the first season last Christmas and just loved it.

    - Mystery Science Theater 3000 Vol. XVI

    Love me this show. Really need to get caught up in my collecting.

    - Lost Season Five

    Goes without saying. This will *crosses fingers* hopefully be the first Blu-Ray on TV I'll get.

    - Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season One

    Dying to see this on HD-TV given when I saw the first season on regular TV, it was too dark to make a lot out.

    - Star Trek Season One

    Oh come on. The classic show on Blu-Ray, loaded with extras? Yes, sir, I want some.

    There are others, but realistically, that's about as much as I'd expect to get. Anything else is gravy.

    Santa did the asking this year. "Do I want an Amazon gift card, and how much?"

    Didn't ask for any myself, but my mother will be getting from me both volumes of S4 of "Perry Mason" since she loves to go through those.
