1.0 out of 5 stars They Ripped Us Off, Again, And They're Not Finished Yet!, February 29, 2012
This review is from: Young Justice: Season 1 - Volumes 1, 2 & 3 (DVD)
This is just ridiculous. They released volume 1, then 2, then 3, each at full price. Now, they are releasing these three volumes together without even completing the season package, so that they can release it all yet again in a few months with more episodes. What are these execs smoking?

You're only ripped off if you buy it and the packaging lied. If you actually look at the DVD packaging, nowhere is this called the COMPLETE first season, or anything of the sort. It only says vol. 1, 2, and 3. It doesn't say this is the whole season at all. It may be a bit misleading, but it's not lying. If you didn't even buy it, you have no right to say anyone ripped you off. A rip off is defined as a bad financial transaction (with the issue of what constitutes "bad" is subjective). To use it in the past tense implies you made the purchase. If you didn't buy it, you're being just as misleading as this listing.

Also, the "execs" are practicing the kind of business that keeps them afloat. Some people will buy season 1 vol. 1 and never buy another DVD. Or maybe vol. 2 or 3. These are targeted at children, not adult collectors. Down the road when it's well into season 2 or even off the air they'll release a collection of the season or half seasons. These are for the collectors and people who want it on the cheap. And they do that only when it is finacially feasible. Just because you and twenty other people on a single message board say you'd buy a season box set doesn't mean that there's enough people out there to justify a $25-40 season set. I can't tell you how many times I've heard people get all excited about full season sets, they finally get released, and then they sell poorly. And if it's not successful, they (the execs) would have no incentive for releasing the second season, etc. Once bitten, twice shy.

Long story short, if you want something cheap, you have to be PATIENT. Convenience sooner is usually more expensive, not less.

If you are responding to Pride's comments, at no point did he complain that he was being "ripped off." He merely complained about the inadequate packaging. If the execs truly wanted to "test the waters" they could have done so with the FIRST DVD collection of several episodes --- to continually parsimoniously dole out a few episodes at a time is not an attempt to see how interested children (or adults)might be in the series, instead it smacks of a blatant attempt to capitalize on whatever interest there is by manipulating fans to buy the same episodes again. In any case, DVDs can now be produced on demand, much like "print on demand," so your basic point is moot.

If they want to see if people are interested, then why don't they just release the complete first season on DVD and Blu-ray. That's the only way they will know if people are actually interested in this show. What they are testing here is how many times people are willing to buy the same thing. I LOVE the show but I'm not buying until I get a full first season set on BR. I mean, why would I? The show is in HD on TV !

I just wanted to tell you that the execs at Time Warner are probably smokin the finest green. Haven't you wondered why they green lit Adventure Time?

First, Adventure Time is AWESOME. Any show that features a gelatinous cube is a-okay in my book.

Second, the execs are probably just smoking cigars. They are lighting them, however, with crisp $100 bills.
