    Are they worth it?
    I passed on the TNG DVDs, but I was actually thinking about getting the DS9 sets.

    But $140?!?!? That’s just ridiculous.

    Can anyone who got the TNG series tell me if the high price tag is worth it? Or will I be passing on this set as well?

      I take it you are not in the US? I paid $97 for each of my copies.

      It’s worth it, if you watch them I suppose.

        The list price is $129.99, but only a few retailers will make you pay that much (ie Best Buy or Suncoast). Amazon lists them at $97. I spotted some of the TNG sets at Costco Wholesale a month or so after release for $75. I’m hoping for a repeat.

        No, I’m in the US. I was going by the list price at TVShowsOnDVD.com, which is $139.99.

        Maybe I’ll skip the first couple of seasons and just get the later ones.

      My girlfriend bought them all (she’s a huge Trek fan) and she never paid more than $110 for any set.

      Most of them she bought when they first came out at Best Buy — they were on sale for less than $100. Granted, it’s a chunk of change, but you’re talking about what — 26+ hours of material per set?

      As for being worth it… seven disks per set, four episodes per disk, plus some with commentary and a bunch of documentaries and special features on the last disk. But it really comes down to how big a Trek fan you are. Me, I’m overjoyed to be able to watch whatever episode I want, when I want it, not to mention missing the several that I’ve never seen before.

      I’ll be feeling the same way about DS9. I missed the first season or two of DS9 when it came out, so it will be great to see it for the first time.

      It beats the $180/season or so it works out to buying the original series 2 episodes per individual disk, which don’t even have any extras, and it takes up a whole lot less space. Though I’m not a big fan of the mega-foldout format…

        Have you seen the B5 DVD case? That’s a well designed unit. Instead of the fold-out, it opens like a book. I really like it.

          I have been a big fan of DS9. It’s my fav Star Trek series and I thought I had watched most of the episodes when they were first released, but now that I have season 1 and 2 DVD sets I realised that I had only seen half of them. Already I am again hooked on the series and wish I didn’t have to wait so long to watch the rest of the seasons.

          I would have been willing to pay the 139.99 or 159.99 but I found both seasons by accident on a routine trip through the video section at my local Walmart for under 100.00 each. I picked them both up at the same time and would have been willing to pick up all 7 seasons at that time had they all been released already.

          I say they are very worth it and am anxiously awaiting the release of the remaining seasons. Part of me is glad for the two months in between seasons so I wouldn’t have to spend more than 100.00 a month for them….the other part wishes they would hurry up and release them already.

          Just my opinion is all.

      I bought the TNG sets for $82 each at http://www.northamericandvd.com.

      They are selling the DS9 sets for $79.99 each. Shipping runs a couple of bucks.

    What’s B5’s problem?
    If DS9 and TNG can chuck out a series of seven disks every month, what I want to know is, why do I have to wait six @#$%^&*! months between every season of Babylon 5 on DVD? It’s going to take two more years to get the full set at that rate.

    Argh!

      Babylon 5 doesn’t have the proven marketability of Star Trek. (Compare the ratings for B5 and DS9 when they were both on the air.) Warner has said that they’ll be willing to step up the schedule if the sales of the existing sets are high enough, and early indications are that they qualify, so season four might make it out just in time for Christmas. They’re planning on adding more special features to each set, so they may be restricted by the availability of the original cast and crew, and the availability of J. Michael Straczynski in particular.
