*Sigh* another boutique project that will likely be WAY overpriced. CBS/Paramount really needs to stop doing this to the fans.


Assuming you're working a full time job, how hard is it to put away $20 a week?

1) that's a big assumption, and

2) even if it were true, that's still a lot of money.

I admit, that even at a discounted price, a 15 disc set is going to be a bit pricey. Why not split it up into individual volumes so that people could buy it in sections? Or only buy the parts they REALLY want. Why is it "all or nothing"?

And whether it's La-La Land or CBS/Para or whomever, Trek has always been pushed out at a premium price. It's wrong, and they should have more consideration for the fans.

3-4x industry standard MSRP for a season set on DVD (to use another example) is price gouging, pure and simple. Even at a discount, expect to pay at least 2x the going rate.
