View Full Version : what shows do you collect on DVD?

09-26-2004, 09:38 PM
This is really just an excuse to flaunt an impressive list of my own by the way, most of it due to my brother. He collects TV shows like I collect toys.

Here goes, in no particular order:

Deep space nine
Star trek: OS
The west wing
The shield
Red Dwarf
The Office
Six feet under
Babylon 5
Murder one
Band of brothers (a one-off but it was episodic)
Teachers (a UK show)
ER (an obscure US hospital drama)
Battlestar Galactica (the modern mini-series and possibly the rest)

Most of the above I haven't watched, some of it I never will. Nip/Tuck has my attention at the moment. Can anyone else rack up that many Tv shows in their DVD collections?

I forgot The sopranos and 24.

Well, here's what I have access to:

Batman: TAS (Volume 1)
Batman Beyond (three compilation discs of the early episodes)
The Simpsons (Seasons 1-4)
Futurama (Volumes 1-4)
Family Guy (Volumes 1-2)
Night Gallery (Season 1)
The Outer Limits (Seasons 1-2 of the original series)
Beast Wars: Transformers (Seasons 1-3)
ER (Seasons 1-2)
Green Acres (Season 1)
The Waltons (Season 1)
Kung Fu (Season 1)
Little House on the Prairie (Seasons 1-2)

TV on DVD is an expensive hobby to get into. Very expensive. There's definitely a lot more I would like to get, though.

I've moved (temporarily) from buying movies to TV shows in the last year. There are a lot more on my wishlist but this is what I have so far.

Simpsons (Season 1-4)
SCTV (Season 1)
Knight Rider (Season 1)
GI Joe (Season 1 Part 1)
Robotech (Parts 1-3)
Monty Python (Compete set)

You're right JBF, TV shows are an expensive genre to buy into. It's easy to buy a movie on a whim but my TV show purchases are really planned out months in advance as they are sure to set you back a minimum of $40-$50.

My near future purchases will be 1 or 2 of the following:

GI Joe (Season 1 Part 2)
Transformers (Season 1 Part 1-2)
Dukes of Hazzard (Season 1)

I'd like to get Simpsons and Seinfeld (when it gets released) but do to $$$, I probably will wait until a sale comes along. I'm planning on getting Clone Wars, Droids, and Ewoks when they come along. The only show I have now is SciFi's Dune and Children of Dune, but they're more miniseries/long movies so they probably fall outside of most peoples' considerations of TV shows.

'Firefly' is the last one that I forgot. Only one series made and have only seen one episode. It seemed good but I haven't felt pushed to watch it from the beginning.

Its my older brother who buys all these shows and lucky for me they're all pooled together for everyone's consumption. The only ones I bought were about 5 X-files seasons, Smallville 1 and 2, and 24 season 3 over a very long period of time. My brother though seems to come home with a new TV show box set every second week. If I was to buy as many series box sets I'd have no hope to collect toys. As I said though I get to enjoy the best of both worlds. In fact its my hobby which is probably the least useful to the other members of my family. My Mcfarlane figures add to the aesthetics of one room which they like but beyond that theres no reason for them to feel like they benefit from the things I buy.

Certain shows really benefit from DVD and being able, time allowing, to watch episodes one after the other. 24, with cliffhangers on every episode, is particularly enjoyable on DVD yet quite frustrating to watch on TV when you have to wait a week to see how it picks up from the last episode.

I think its great to have all these shows archived for future referance. It needn't be a matter of merely catching one episode of an old show on telly and saying 'oh remember that' when you can actually have every single episode.

The only shows I will actually buy on DVD are:

The Sopranos
Curb Your Enthusiasm
The Office (US)

Anything other than that, I will just watch through Netflix...I was collecting The Simpsons but there's no way I will see that one through to the end and I haven't bought the last few sets.

I don't plan on see it through to the end either, with how bad the seasons have become. I will probably pick up a few more (I have the first 7 or 8 right now), and that will be it.
