OK, so we all have our series that we intend to collect until completion, given the chance, but are there any that you have started buying, but already abandoned (even before the studio has)? Mine are: King Of The Hill: I remembered watching some of it on TV and bought season 1 because it was cheap, and enjoyed it enough to take a chance on season 2. However, I found that set a struggle, and am unlikely to add any further seasons. Sanford & Son: Season 1 was a blind buy, and I enjoyed it enough to continue. I'm currently working through season 3, but I think that three seasons will be enough, as most of what I have read suggests that it is downhill all the way after that. The Monkees: This is strange, as I always enjoyed watching it on TV in my early years, and continued to enjoy reruns in the 80's and 90's. But watching Season 1 now on DVD leaves me cold. Given the poor audio and video quality on this set as well, I have not been tempted to spring for Season 2. Given the chance, I would abandon Happy Days probably after 3 or 4 seasons, and Laverne and Shirley after probably 2.
