The problem is with this latest edition, and the shortcuts and poor production of the collection and physical product. The previous 5 seasons (BLUE) were done as a 3-fold case that insert into a nice box. Each of the discs fit securely into a clear recessed panel over an episode photo montage. The back of each panel contains an episode listing with title and story description. The on-screen selection interface also shows this title and episode summary along with a thumbnail photo. The thumbnail photo is an easy way to remember an episode and title connection.
This 6th season edition (YELLOW) replaced the box-set design with a cheap plastic DVD case, without any episode listings or descriptions. The case center spindles were broken on 3 out of 6, preventing those discs from staying in place. The on-screen selection interface is "title-only", sans description and photo, so it's a challenge to connect an episode with it's title for later viewing. The final indignity was the discovery of a pressing defect on one of the discs that lock-up the player during that episode.
Several more seasons of AHP await release. Let's hope they return to the previous seasons release format--Alfred deserves it!
It's unfortunate that Season 6 was issued on a did-r (that is, manufactured to order) because it delays delivery and costs more than the other Hitchcock seasons. Also, there isn't a single damn program note inside nor ever a bare-books listing of the titles and actors on each disc. For $40-plus, every purchaser deserves better. The vastly wealthy Universal owes us a better product.
Does anyone know when Season 7 of the half-hour episodes finally will be released? Hell, if it's going to be dvd-r anyway, what's the delay?
