Definitely.UniversalPhan said:Not only that but Universal re-releasing these TV shows via single sided DVD sets and the single DVD cases gives them a chance to soak TV fans for DVD sales. If you've noticed, many of these re-issued sets are averaging between $25-30. It's offensive. One would think that Universal would lower those price points down to around $15-20.
This would be further compounded if Fox also starts to re-release their previous flipper sets, as single-sided disc re-releases. (Dunno about Anchor Bay considering some of their original flipper sets were Stephen J Cannell tv shows, which they don't have the license to anymore. Mill Creek now has the rights to many of Cannell's old shows).
In the case of Warner, I'm willing to double-dip on the remaining Dukes of Hazzard flipper season sets (seasons 2, 3 and 6), the original V tv series, and the Wonder Woman seasons, if and when they're re-released as single-sided discs.
In the case of Fox, I'm holding off on buying The Pretender until it is re-released as single-sided discs. Though I'm willing to double dip on Remington Steele if they're ever re-released as single-sided discs. (If this ever happens).
For Fox shows I don't have yet, such as Hill Street Blues, NYPD Blue, LA Law, etc ... I may just wait for or pick up the "complete series" single-sided disc sets released by somebody else (such as Shout! Factory).
Looking more closely at Fox, I just noticed the season 1 dvd set of Bones is a double-sided flipper disc set. At this point, I'm tempted to just wait for a possible "complete series" bluray set for Bones, in the hope that seasons 1 to 3 are eventually released on bluray. Bones has been consistently released on bluray since season 4. (The "bonus episodes" from the season 3 dvd set, are included on the season 4 bluray).
