The thread on TV show pricing got me thinking about whether it was even worth waiting for a lot of these TV on DVD discs. Recently, I've made my own DVDs of Enterprise season 3, and am working on Six Feet Under right now. True, these DVDs aren't up to the professional quality that we've come to expect, but when you combine the high price of these discs with the long waits for some of them, you have to wonder if it's really worth waiting. Also, when you consider that the blank DVDs I'm using are down to around $1.20 each, then the first season of 6 Feet Under that I just transfered has run me about $8.50 in media (and a few hours of time). Contrast that with the $90 the same episodes would cost retail-are the retail discs really 10 times better? Don't get me wrong, I'll still buy some TV on DVD (the collector's mentality is truly an evil thing), but I'm definitely going to think twice about whether making my own discs is "good enough".
