I know, better than most, that DVDs (including Blu-ray) are pretty much yesterday’s news. I worked in that industry for many years, and it’s quickly going the way of the Fotomat. Not that it makes me happy, mind you. I like to own things. Streaming is fine, but I prefer to POSSESS the stuff I truly love. That sounds kind of weird, doesn’t it?
In any case, here are the complete TV series I’ve procured through the years:
Homicide: Life on the Streets
Monty Python’s Flying Circus
The Young Ones
My So-Called Life
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Get A Life
The Andy Griffith Show (B&W episodes only)
Saturday Night Live (original cast seasons only)
There might be others, but I think that about covers it. I’d like to add a few more to the list, including Freaks and Geeks, King of the Hill, I Love Lucy, The Honeymooners, The Twilight Zone, and The Fugitive. Maybe even Perry Mason and Mannix. Also, I’d like to own every episode of Fernwood 2 Night, but it’s not available yet. At least not legitimately. And Green Acres! They only released the first three seasons. What in the pearl-handled hell??
Do you POSSESS any complete TV series? Which ones would you like to add to your collection? Are there any you wish they’d release, and haven’t? Tell us about it in the comments.
Also, do you still buy movies on DVD? I don’t. Not really. I have a few on my Amazon Wishlist, including Over the Edge, Falling Down, and this Jacques Tati collection. But I almost never buy movies. Maybe one per year? In fact, that might be overstating it. What about you? Bring us up to date on your DVD-buying habits.
And I know this one is quarter-assed, at best. But I live a life of sustained chaos. Give me a break. Sheesh.
I’ll see you guys again soon.
Have a great day!
