Brisco = Bare Pockets = Good Night Sleep
So I bought the complete seasons of Brisco County Jr. I just started watching them from the beginning, and dammit if they aren’t as good as when I saw them back in 1993!
The even better part? I dreamt about my boyfriend, Bruce, all night!
Ah….What a dreamboat!
So my reason for ranting: Why was this DVD box set so expensive? I looked around online and think I got a pretty good deal, but this reminds me of ALL DVD series sets. Buying the complete seasons is very big right now. Heck, I am only 1 season away from having all 7 seasons of Star Trek the Next Generation! Of course, I couldn’t actually AFFORD all 7 seasons. Star Trek is over $100 per season – anywhere you look! I burned them through Netflix. But my question is this: Why are they so expensive? It’s like they’re charging $15 per disk per set! Well I don’t like it! Thank gawd we can burn DVDs. Otherwise, I’d NEVER be able to get all seasons of X-Files!
Holy crap. Looking at the above paragraph, I just realized what a nerd I am.
But cereally, why so expensive, mon frere? I mean, most of the box sets aren’t even in syndication anymore. NO ONE wants to buy half of what they’re putting out! I mean, Land of the Lost? The Facts of Life? What’s Happening? Webster? Who wants to buy that crap? And even if you DO want to buy it, why is it so damn expensive? Okay, so many of you may be thinking the same about Brisco – which OBVIOUSLY you’ve never WATCHED that show – but are Warner Brothers and UBU Productions worried about LOSING money over the selling of their ‘great’ TV shows? I would think they’re actually MAKING money buy just putting them out there! And think about all the MORE money they’d be making if they lowered the cost of these stinker’s – so the general public could actually AFFORD them!
Okay. I’ll stop ranting. But I really DO wonder who is gobbling up the complete first season of Diff’rent Strokes at an amazing $40 a pop. I ask you?
How about any other stinker box sets? I’d LOVE to hear about them!
