    Please, oh please Mr. Blythe DO NOT use "The Godfather" packaging scheme with the your upcoming release of the Star Trek :TNG Boxed Set. Please, oh please Mr. Blythe use the X-Files packaging scheme. Your non-standard scheme for "The Godfather" is, in polite terms, BAD. Thank you for your kind attention & consideration. Live long and prosper!

    Please Oh Please use Stargate season one packaging scheme. Each disc gets it's own keepcase with artwork on front and back.

    I would not have any argument with that scheme.

    While I might regret this in a few years when a cardboard box-type thingie falls apart, I will say for now that I prefer - for 3-or-more disc sets like this - an X-Files or Simpsons type case, instead of the StarGate SG-1 type of a-keepcase-for-each-disc storage.
    Why? Because my DVD storage space is large, but not infinite. I'll take any space-savers I can get, but in good quality sturdy packaging. I don't endorse cardboard for 2-disc sets, like X-Men and Close Encounters did (in fact I prefer Cast Away or Jesus of Nazareth cases at best and Abyss or Supergirl at worst).
    I'm still trying to find places for all of my Star Trek: TOS and Best of The Muppet Show cases...

    I would prefer Stargate style packaging, or perhaps a combination of that style packaging with the double-disc cases such as Gladiator and Cast Away.

    Thank you Sci-Fi channel for Season 6 of Stargate SG-1

    I can certainly understand and agree with people when they point out that TOS disc's take up a lot of room. But we know Paramount will put more than 2 episodes per disc on TNG so we know each season will not be 11 or 12 disc's. If you have Stargate season one collection compair it to X-Files collection. Is the space saved worth getting a cardboard box that will wear out?
    Another nice thing about keepcase collections is you can get the disc you want without having to unfold the entire package. More art work (even more if they do inserts). Best of all, if for some reason the plastic gets damaged it's real easy to replace.
    Try to replace Godfather, X-Files, Sopranos, Close Encounters type packaging. Also try to remember how many complains have we seen on that type of package. I may be wrong but I can't remember one complaint on Stargate season one collection.

    I entirely agree with John - SG-1 style boxsets using thin double-alphas are the best solution. They won't take up too much space, but will still look impressive on the shelf. [​IMG]
