Do You Wait For Special Edition DVDs?

This week's release of the 10th anniversary Sports Night DVD collection got me thinking about DVD sets and how I choose to add to my own collection. I was excited to get my hands on the new Sports Night set — but first, I had to get rid of my old one, which had all the episodes but no bonus features.

At least as far as TV on DVD is concerned, it's practically a given these days that a bigger and better DVD set will come along eventually to replace the one you already own. For example, I had to offload a bunch of my old Six Feet Under sets when I finally decided to upgrade to the complete series. The same can happen for movies: I was thrilled to see that a Criterion Collection edition of Bottle Rocket was in the works, except I already own the movie minus the best of the special features.

Do you hold out for complete series or special edition DVDs? And if you already own the basic version, do you upgrade when something new and shiny comes along?

it depends on how much more it cost. Everything is judged by the cost of a gallon of gas... For example... if the reg. DVD is $17 and the special ed. is $21... I say uh huh...that's a gallon of gas. :ROTFL:

There are very limited situations in which I'll upgrade. Sports Night is definitely one of them. I did wait years to buy LA Confidential on DVD, though, in hopes that a special edition would come out (which it finally did)!

it totally depends. i love love LOVE sports night, so i may be willing to splurge on the special edition, even though i have the basic edition.

Not unless I REALLY like the movie. Then again, I don't buy movies unless I really like them. Hooray for Netflix!

I almost never watch special features anyway, so for me there's no point in waiting.

It depends on the movie, but most of the time I just get the regular edition.

for me it depends on what it is and what they offer in the special edition. there are a couple that i've bought them for added scenes or commentary/features, but in some cases i don't care as much for the extras that it doesn't make sense for me to pay the extra $$
