That's true, but this is an entirely new release of the series, by a different company with different packaging, and with newly encoded discs. To not bother throwing something new on...strikes me as cheap.
I agree. But filming extras takes time and money, and I'm sure they figure that the passage of time and some new box art will be enough to please the die hard fans. It's a niche series anyway ... enough will buy to make it work for 'em. It's sad, but it's also the way of the world. If they can screw you, they will.
