MTM is one series that was on my DVD list from the beginning. When I saw the first PR image of the packaging, I knew I had to have it. I don't remember being distressed at the price I paid at Costco, but couldn't tell you what it was. I'm very happy with the set, and recommend it to anyone who is on the fence. I have no problems with the White Christmas edit, as I know that songs that you might think are in the public domain are the most expensive, most obnoxious ones to license. I'd prefer it be there, but it's not going to keep me from enjoying the other HOURS of entertainment in this set. I too think the best hope for this series is for season 2 to come out. Best Buy and Deep Discount would both likely offer some bonus price for people buying both. I can't say I blame Fox for not wanting to pursue it though. I've been seeking to "get the word out" for 24, so I've been passing it around the office, and bought the set for my mother's birthday. I did the same with Stargate. Perhaps anyone who really wants to see a season 2 should look at who is on their gift list, and get them season 1 for the next holiday or birthday.
