Well if you're reading this and you don't know me, you're a sucker since this is just for people buying me presents (apparently there are a lot of suckers because a LOT of people have read this guide and very few of you have actually purchased presents for me. Shame on you.). Lets get down to business: I like DVDs, lots of them. I've started adding some non-DVDs to the list however, because people complained about my lack of variety. So see, whining does get you places in life.
I'm also curious why people would vote that this guide is not helpful. It's designed to do one thing, and that's give ideas to people who would like to buy me a birthday gift or Christmas present. I've looked over it several times and I must say it seems to perform that function quite admirably. If you're viewing this guide and you're not interested in buying me anything, well that's not really my fault now is it? So please think of the children and use your votes wisely!
TV Seasons The Simpsons: Season 10 The show was nearing the end of its golden age during this season, and many of my favorite episodes are included in this set. Add in commentaries on every single episode and other bonus features, and this would make a great gift. While the show is still on the air after some 25+ seasons, I think this will be the last season I get, rounding off my collection at an even 10 seasons.
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Season 5 I've got the first four seasons of this cool series that spawned the current procedural craze. I've never really kept up with the series on the air so these episodes will all be new to me. I definitely still want this season, but as I don't have a desire to collect this whole show, this may be the last season I get.
Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season 6 [Blu-ray] I own this series already on DVD, but for the Blu Ray sets they've gone back and painstakingly recreated all of the effects shots (as they were originally mastered to tape, and thus needed to be remade for HD), and have spent a lot of time fixing other visual issues with the original versions, and the show has never looked better. I own the first five seasons on Blu-Ray already.
TV Volumes Mystery Science Theater 3000: XXIII I have Collections #1-8 and #10-#22 of MST3K along with many of the individual disks (sadly, #9 is out of print), and Volume #23 continues the great tradition. This is a classic and unique series with the host and his robot friends making fun of terrible old B-movies that they're forced to watch.
The Simpsons Movie [Blu-ray] A true classic, the show had dropped in quality for years by the time the movie came out, but this seemed to recapture a lot of the magic and I loved it the one time I've seen it.
Veronica Mars: The Movie (Blu-ray) The final(?) installment of the franchise starring Kristen Bell, the Kickstarted movie features the eponymous Veronica returning to Neptune after several years away, and being embroiled in a murder investigation to help clear her ex-boyfriend's name. One of my favorite shows of all time, and the movie did the series justice.
