Due to a mistake on my part for bringing my arguments in the past into the Battlestar Galactica topics, and I understand why Gord has been so upset, thought I'd create this topic instead. In the past several years my collection of TV Shows on DVD has grown in leaps and bounds. While most TV Shows on DVD have remained stable around the $40-50 mark does the number of episodes released in a set have a direct influence on your purchase? When I have decided to latch onto a new TV on DVD series, some shows which begin with an initial 15 episodes but level out around 22 episodes for less than $50 does not bother me when purchasing these sets. But, the number of episodes in direct impact with the price does affect my purchase. Most of us, and I think there are a huge variety of fans who find themselves in a position just like myself, purchase these sets in real brick and mortar shows and often purchase these sets on the week of release. However, price often does bear a consequence of whether or not I purchase the series. Most often, if it's a series I caught watching on television then usually price doesn't matter as long as it's within reason. The only time I spent over $50 for a set was with Battlestar Galactica and Buck Rogers at a whopping $80-90 per set. While I haven't seen the new BG series on television I had seen the mini series but with Universals pricing structure and it's not just that company either, Fox seems to have the same problem with high profile TV Shows. While single DVD releases have leveled out between $10-20, if you're lucky enough to find a store chain that discounts its DVD's but the TV DVD format hasn't exactly caught up to that point. While it's a dreadsome subject, most fans dislike spending $40 for a Boxed set that contains only 10 episodes. Battlestar Galactica, OZ, Shield, MI-5 and many others have suffered from this problem preventing many new fans from discovering these shows. It's a conbination of things that determine this, msot people work on shifts where they aren't able to watch the show when it's broadcast or don't receive that channel from their cable company and prevent those new fans from discovering or purchasing that show on DVD. Most are on a budget and this sort of hinders other people from picking up the series and resortinh to other methods such as ordering Region 0 DVD's through auction sites. If I had watched some of these shows during their broadcast, I might have different feelings but the fact is that price isn't a neccessary factor for me. I had never seen Gilmore Girls or Smallville before I picked up the first two seasons of each show for $20 each. The following seasons I gladly paid $45 for the remaining seasons because I absolutely fell in love with the shows. Warner Bros is a good example of doing good business and keeping their DVD sets at an affordable price while giving their fans of their shows a reasonable number of episodes for what they are pay8ing for.
