Re: Season 4: Just how much of it can be called Fanwank?

I tend to get impulsive on these things sometimes. I checked the used music store on the way home this morning (where I got 2 Fan Collectives and DS9:Season7 last month, but they had no Enterprise.

And that monthly bill was with the corner mom & pop type convenience store, where they let me run a tab because I've shopped there for 15 years.

So I might get an urge to spend the big bucks early while I have them, and worry about it around the 15th, when I'm usually broke anyway. And this is a short month, so March's check will be less of a wait.

Either way, I'll add the extra $100 to my usual more than minimum credit card payment, and try to sit on it as long as I can.

I've read too many horror stories about E-Bay and don't visit it. I've only used Amazon twice and they haven't disappointed me.
I've had over 100 purchases on eBay, never burned once. They have ratings systems to avoid this... only buy from a seller with very high feedback or a minimum of a few thousand transactions and you'll be sound as a pound.

I picked up Enterprise season 4 at my local used media shop... for $20. It was a real steal ,even in CAD!

Re: Season 4: Just how much of it can be called Fanwank?

Ebay is pretty much my Walmart. Most people who have horror stories took a risk on a purchase with clear red flags. People complain they bought a fake item and yet the feedback is full of people complaining the item was fake

There are many established dvd sellers on ebay with stellar feedback who have specialized in selling dvd's for years. I often buy second hand dvd's as well and never had any problems.

Re: Season 4: Just how much of it can be called Fanwank?

Okay, I committed. Amazon's price dropped another $25 (matching its Christmas price), so I jumped for it with next day shipping. And they showed it as the only one left for that offer. It's shipped by Amazon, and I think they have a distribution center in my city.

I should be able to start catching up tomorrow.

Edit: Just looked, and the price jumped back up after I bought it.

Re: Season 4: Just how much of it can be called Fanwank?

I'm getting the complete set with all seasons, which is why I had trouble committing. I'd been thinking about it since December, was hoping for last month due to my birthday.

The only complete collection I ever had was Paramount's pre-recorded TOS tapes, until someone I trusted robbed me.

You won't regret it and I must say I envy you with NEW TREK in front of you.

Re: Season 4: Just how much of it can be called Fanwank?

I'll probably start with Broken Bow, though I didn't start missing lots of shows until S3. I missed a lot after the Xindi were introduced, and sometimes had no idea what was going on if I caught an occasional episode. I should probably limit myself to 2 hours a day rather than jump ahead or watch them right after another.

EDIT: It's here! I'll watch the featurettes first before getting down to business.

Yeah, Season 4 is basically the very definition of fanwank.

That being said, it was kind of interesting to see how Trek looks like when it has a showrunner who's seemingly obsessed with canon and continuity.
