I really think the distribution (couple eps. per disc) and the pricing seriously stunted the possible sales of the DVD discs of the original series. I know I would have bought the series if it had been available at a more reasonable price, in box sets. As it was, I only have a couple discs. IMO, this was a mistake by Paramount. The series looks superb on DVD and it's a shame they couldn't see fit to offer it in a logical manner. I guess they banked on the so-called "geek factor" enticing certain people to rob their parent's wallets/purses in order to purchase all of them. Why couldn't the first series have been presented like "Star Trek-Generations" 1st season, as a box set, with maybe slightly lower pricing? Star Trek Next Gen. 1st season is $130 Can. minimum whereas "Buffy" second season (a full one) is only $59.00. I guess it comes down to the size and maybe the average income of the particular fan base?
