    Why is collecting TV shows on DVD such an expensive past time!!

    Stargate SG1 R2 - £250
    Buffy R2 - £485
    Angel R2 - £180
    Sopranos - £140

    with all the work I have to do to save up for them I wont have time to watch them!!

    I know what you mean, can get pretty expensive buying all the different series/episodes. Could always just buy the best series of the bunch? Mind you, depends how fussy you are for collecting the entire series or not.:blush:

    Wouldn't it be cheaper to just get TiVO and record them?

    Get a DVDR works out at about £3 per season

    the extras on TV DVDs especially the American ones are usually awful anyway

    Recording TV onto DVD. No thanks!

    Voiceovers, adverts, split screen credits, DOGs......

    Would you put up with those on movies? I'm guessing no, so why on television shows?

    I'm happy to say that TV DVDs make up the bulk of my current purchases, by the end of this year over 50% of my collection will consist of television material. Given a choice between movies and TV shows I'll take television anyday.

    i do not even record the credits, never seen the point in them

    voiceover, this is not really an issue since they only really appear on credits

    (apart from BBC3 being ****wits on 24 last sunday)

    Adverts - these can very easily be edited out cleanly

    DOGs yep you have me there, DOGs I hate them :mad:

    (why do broadcasters have them?)

    but I think the advantages far outweigh the cons

    So much cheaper

    You do not have to wait a ridiculous amount of time after the broadcast date

    Seinfeld for one has not being released on DVD yet. However, thanks to my DVDR I now have season 7, albeit with the paramount DOG on DVD.

    swings and roundabouts

    Hi,

    DOG stands for Digital Onscreen Graphic! However, for viewers, it frequently means Digital Onscreen Gumph! :lol:

    It's that stupid unnecessary annoying Logo, usually in the top left hand corner. It's unnecessary, because anyone who doesn't know which channel they have selected, shouldn't be allowed to watch Tele anyway.

    They don't call me LOGO HATER for nothing.:mad: :mad: :mad: :suicide:

    I see from your collection that you have bought a good number of TV DVDs ;)

    Would you put up with DOGs on movies, do you record the credits on movies?

    Yes i did and I still will buy certain TV DVDs. The extras on some TV DVDs are definitely worth having. The commentary on the Phoenix Nights DVD is worth the price of the DVD alone

    It was becoming far too expensive, hence the need for the DVDR

    I too probably prefer TV Series DVDs to one off films and don't get me wrong if money was no object I would of course buy the DVDs available. However, money is an issue as is the frustrating long delay in releasing TV DVDs

    I do not think DOGs are acceptable but it is a price I am prepared to pay at the moment

    an no I wouldn't bother recording credits on films I am one of those annoying buggers who leaves the cinema as soon as it ends
