One thing that kept me away from buying TV for awhile was the investment required to own an entire series. As a result, I started out with just the Avenger's (Peel years) that I bought when they first came out. They don't air that often and there were only a few years so I felt it worth it. In the last two years everything changed and I've really gotten into TV. Especially, older series I rarely was able to watch if any. Now I don't mind the investment. I wonder if studio's find that each season of a series brings in a little less then the previous. That only the truly faithful will keep buying and at that point pull the plug. Or another option is that they keep looking for another Star Trek that will sell no matter what. So they are willing to try a season or two and if it doesn't take off they abandon it. Another negative is that these types of series are only going to bring in so much, so they break up seasons into two volumes to get more revenue. Then you get people complaining refusing to buy like they can really change anything. Next you know it gone for good. Personally, for older series that had more episodes per season, say 30 or so, I would buy in volumes for up to $25-$30 a volume or $50-$60 a season if they would just keep them going. While I'm a fan of some extra's focused around interviews of critical players (which we generally do not get), if there is extra cost attributed to these so called fancy boxes, I'd rather they skip them. Just give basic containers that don't damage the disks to minimize cost to get them out.
