This dvd set contains very few episodes. Why don't they release this show in series anymore? The used versions of the series sell at inflated prices, so obviously that's the format that people would rather purchase. Why did they discontinue the season releases? I know this show doesn't follow a season format, but the Discovery Channel could release every 25 episodes in a box set and call it a season. Or they could package all the episodes that aired over the course of a calendar year and call that a season. I hate trying to collect an entire series when the releases are haphazard.
My specific problem with Collection 5 is that, as other reviewers have pointed out, it offers less episodes than the previous Collection releases. I can't see any motivation for that since there are plenty of episodes waiting to be released except to stretch out the releases as thin as possible to sell us as many Collection sets and take more of our money for the same amount of product.
It's a great, stimulating show-5 Stars. The marketing decisions get 1 Star. The average of the two = 3 Stars, hence my rating. Show good. Discovery Channel bad.
-Alcohol myths, -Motorcycle Flip (My Favorite), -Coffin Punch, -End with a Bang,
-Alaska special 2, and Banana Slip Double Dip. Great dvd but buy this at target. I love it and no flaws.
My question: If I own Mythbusters Collections 1 though 7, do I own all the released episodes? Or were any of episodes released in the Seasons sets and not the Collections sets?
Good packaging, quick shipping, CD's were in perfect shape as would be expected from new product.
Face it, these guys make blowing stuff up an art. I do so envy their job :)
