I think this thread fits ok in this forum, please move it if not. Anyway, I haven't counted my collection for the first 3 years and only started in recent 12 months or so, and it troubled me (as much as this kind of thing can of course ). Just counting by the boxes isn't fair, you got things like X-Files, a good 16 or so hours, a full season, 7 discs, pretty expensive, etc, and it's what, just 1? No, that's not good enough. Also some discs have 2 episodes, some 3 or 4 or more. Each episode is usually written and directed by a different person and is like a whole sequel, so the series is like a pilot with 200 sequels. So I counted by discs at first, but then there are some double feature titles like Fly/Fly 2 and Arrival/Arrival II, that's one disc but two movies on either side. Plus the number of discs does not fairly represent the actual number of movies. Some are just 1 movie but 2 or 4 discs, some movies I have two copies of to get all the extras or diff versions of films, like with Dir's cut R1 of Impostor and theatrical cut in DTS from Japan, etc. Some tv series are shorter, some run for years, so it's better to count episodes as well. So, I've decided to count the movies (no matter how many copies/versions I got, still one movie is one movie) and tv series separately, and then all their episodes together, as well as separating anime features and series and documentaries/video music/concert dvds, and then counting the individual discs, plus the little left overs of VHS and LDs and it's all in my new sig and this is the only way to accurately represent anyone's collection because counting by only one method, boxes, titles, discs, etc, is not accurate. So, is there anyone as obsessed as me? I don't think so, short of counting all the featurettes and maybe adding all the running times of all the discs So how do you count your collections?
