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?
