DS-9 is ~$98/season.There are 7 seasons. $700 is a bit much to pay for a series.
Slayers ~$117/season. 3 seasons. $350 for the series? That's on Amazon. On ebay, they're closer to $25 a season
X-Files ~$130/season. 10 seasons? Over $1000 for the series??
The Simpsons are about $30 a series. Not bad.
It makes me wonder who actually buys this stuff. I'd love to get DS-9. But they charge for a season what i'd rather pay for the series. Especially with no real reruns, who's going to buy it anyway?
As for Slayers, i've downloaded mostly all the episodes. Though i've watched most of them on i-channel first. When i have some money to spend, i'm thinking of buying the series. Oddly enough, without downloading them i probably never would have been interested. At $30 dollars a season its ok. I'd *never* pay over $100 for them!
X-Files, well the first eight seasons, i'd love to purchase. Again, however, they charge for a season what i'd rather pay for the series. I'll probably just download the series instead.
Who are they trying to target with these outrageous prices? Imagine, if any one season for any tv show cost ten dollars. Would that change your purchasing habits? I'd most certainly go and buy a few seasons of old shows, and possibly purchase the entire series. Instead, with these prices, they are targetting die-hard fans. And are unlikely to attract any new interest in old shows.
How much do you think they should cost?
