    . . . include some TV on DVD sets. As one might expect, theatrical releases dominated the list, but TV shows on DVD made a respectable showing.

    The top “TV on DVD” set was season 1 of “Sex and the City” at #15.

    Rounding out the top 25:

    #19: “Band of Brothers”
    #22: “Seinfeld: Seasons 1 & 2”
    #24: “The Simpsons – Season 1”

    Here’s the link for the full list:

    I'm not sure if I should be concerned or not. I have 16 out of the 25 (none of the TV on DVD though...)

    I have 18 of the top 25, and if you count the Ultimate Matrix Collection that would make 19.

    I don't have Sex and the City Season 1 anymore, I don't have Band of Brothers, Any of the Harry Potter Films, or Saving Private Ryan.

    I bought none of them from Amazon. I believe I have a friend that has all the DVDs in the top 25.

    Wasn't "Chappelle's Show" supposed to be the best-selling TV-on-DVD champ? I guess most people didn't buy it from Amazon. I'm also kinda surprised that "The Sopranos" didn't make the list.

    I currently have 12, but I used to own another 4 that have since been removed during my annual DVD collection thinnings.

    I have 23 of them. The 2 that I don't have are Sex and the City and Seinfeld. If I ever come into some disposable income, I'll pick up the Sex and the City sets, but never Seinfeld. Never been a fan of that show and never will be.

    I don't still own all of the discs, but I've owned 23 of the 25 - everything except "Sex in the City" and "Band of Brothers"!

    Geez, the only one I don't have is Band of Brothers. Is it any good? Since I don't have any sat/cable/OTA TV here, I rely on word of mouth (mainly here) to decide what TV DVD to buy. All the other discs they mention I also happen to think are pretty good to excellent. So IMO not a bad list, no real dogs.

    I have 20/25.

    On my list to buy though is Gladiator & Braveheart.

    No Matrix, Godfather or S&TC.

    Still a very good list.

    I wish they would do a top 25 TV on DVD and see how many of those I have

    Yikes! I've got 23 of 25! :b (No Simpsons or Sex & the City for me!) Guess I should be laughing at myself, too, Ric!

    I've got 18 of the top 25. No tv sets though with no desire
    to purchase those particular ones.

    Actually, technically... Sex in the City is my wife's! I find the show demeaning to men!
