I didn't see this mentioned on the forum anywhere yet... so thought I would bring it up now. When looking at the packaging of the Smallville season 1 I just got. This is the first thing I bought with this type of case. I don't know if it is something new or just my first time seeing it. I am concerned that with multiple veiwings this case will not last long at all. Just opening it a few times with people looking at the set I can see where it is creasing at the spine... my concern is the spine won't last long. Anyone here have more experience with this type of case? Has there been any problems yet? That being said... I can't wait to watch season 1 over again. I will watch this one after I watch the rest of Alias: season 1. I am now on episode 19 so that will be laster today!
