I'm in total agreement with you there, Ptrope
is by and large the worst example of price gouging on the DVD market. Yeah, the DVDs are nicely done, and they're chock-full of special features, but when it gets down to brass tacks, people are buying the DVDs for the episodes, and that's where the value starts to fall apart... a full season of one-hour Trek
episodes retails for what, $120? $130?* A comparable full season of Boston Legal
goes for half as much. Paramount's charging an arm and a leg because they know the Trekkies will let them get away with it.
*I realize the prices have been lowered as time marched on, but let's face it... those were obscene, ridiculous prices, even in the earlier days of TV-on-DVD.
