I am absolutely positive they are going to make this into a complete series. 95% positive. They usually put out the complete series to shows that were very successful in their runs. You have to admit this show was very successful in its run. So dont be dissapointed when you have all of the seasons on dvd and the complete series comes out soon after the last season is out on dvd.
I think what you mean is that at some point a packaged set will be manufactured and sold that has the entire series -- all nine seasons -- in one big box. What they did with the "Buffy" and the original British "The Office" series, and presumably some other long-running series I don't know about. (I'm not counting short-lived series always assembled in one DVD box, like "Dilbert" or "The Lone Gunmen".)
I'm not an expert on the subject, but my impression is that whenever that is done, there'll be very little if any in the way of price savings. They just stick it all together -- hopefully the "complete series" box at least saves a little in the way of storage space -- and charge as much or more than ever. The idea, I imagine, is that there are fans/collectors out there eager for any new kind of addition to their collections, price being little object.
Of course, if we wait enough years, the prices will go down on all this stuff, if we're still alive to enjoy the savings.
Wasn't the seventh season of "Seinfeld" the last with the involvement of Larry David? Didn't the quality of the last two season take a huge dive following from his departure?
If so, can't discriminating viewers just buy Season 7 to complete their sets, and then forget the whole thing after that? In that event, who'd need the complete series anyway?
Season 7 was the last season with Larry David, but I personally beleive the show was still good. I mean the plunge in quality of the show is anyone's opinion but it was still good. And yes, they probably will be a box set but the prices will be higher then if you just bought them seperatly and they very rarly have special features not available on the season discs
