I think that the comparisons to other shows are mostly not apt. I don't think LHOTP is getting any where near the amount of bonus material this set is, I mean multiple versions of every episode, sometimes 3, and everything else. This is a huge thing to put together, it's not just slapping the episodes on discs. I'd bet anything that they are probably only working on season 2 now. To release a complete series set with this level of features would be years of work so it only makes sense to put it out a season at a time as you complete the work.For me, the price is higher than I'm willing to pay, but I'm now glad I've held off on the DVDs When it gets to a place I feel I can justify, $40-50 range I would probably get this.
