Expensive Extras

Sales of Sex and the City's DVD collection just never seems to let up...what with them comin in different packagin from the DVD regional play...the producers of the hit series have now come up with a massive 20-disc collection of the entire 7 seasons on DVD...

The catch: it costs US$300...

Holy crap...

On top of the usual hooplapalooza of episodes and extra that came together with the original DVDs...the box set also comes with 3 alternate endings to the final episode and an entire disc containin bonus features such as guides to fashion...New York restaurants...datin advice...a quote trivia game and highlights of high-profile guest appearances...

Wowzers...

It's over the top if you ask me...many SATC fans would already own previous seasons of the series...and to fork out that sum of money just for those extras just isnt worth the money...


There are other options though...Australia has a different box set that comes in a cute cosmetic case...at A$200...it's almost 50% cheaper than the US version...then again the verdict's out there for rabid fans...it's all a matter of choice...

I can understand the producer's desire to rake in profits...but dont they realise they're screwin us fans royally over and over? As it is Buffy fans are being flayed and left out to dry with the crazy amount of money being traded over eBay for the limited edition Region 4 cardboard box sets...i cant justify the amount of money being paid for several pieces of plastic and cardboard just becoz the producers decide to put a stop to production at their whim and fancy...

Im uncertain bout other TV series...but im sure there're similar cases...genre television i.e Buffy, Babylon 5 and Star Trek will never be as big as the 'commercialised fast food' Sex and the City...so why are us fans marginalised? Why are we shellin obscene amounts of money? Is riddin the world of evil and vampires/inter-stellar war/explorin the galaxy more expensive than 4 stereotypical women who prance around in Manolo Blahniks and bitch bout sex and love?

Cmon...priorities...get with the program Hollywood...
