The pricing policies for TV Box Sets are all over the place. I can't understand why companies are charging the same amounts for first seasons - which are usually 12 episodes or so - as they do for all the other seasons. Surely it makes sense to charge as low a price as possible for first season sets, in order to entice people into buying the rest. Over here, box set prices are plummeting fast and I've blind bought several series like THE SOPRANOS, THE SHIELD and ALIAS when they've become available for a reasonable sum. It's now more than likely that I'll buy the second seasons and probably be prepared to pay a little more, knowing that I like them. In fact, I've already bought Sopranos 2 and 3 for a higher price, though season 4 remains unacceptably expensive, imo. I know there are exceptions to this - CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, SOAP, MARRIED WITH CHILDREN - but there are still stupid anomalies. The prices charged for the Star Trek sets (discused in another thread) are outrageous and charging the same for SEX AND THE CITY season 5 - 8 episodes only ! - as for seasons 2-4 seems positively self-defeating. I'm sure if season one of LARRY SANDERS had been priced more modestly, we might have had the prospect of one day seeing season 2.
