    Found a few here like that.
    Usualy PAL titles are like that,i didn't came across any NTSC ones.

      I have only a few DVD's where I can't skip the ads for the studio, where they show the other titles they have on DVD.

      With regard to Babylon 5, the price for each season was reasonable. $60-$75 is something I didn't complain about. Compare that to the X-Files and the Star Trek series, where it's $100 per season. I spent $100 for a 16 disc boxset of the entire "Monty Python's Flying Circus" series.

      Thank you Memphis Grizzlies for a great season.

        Paying upfront money for programs that I didn't or couldn't watch free (or paid cable) TV? I'm not sure I'd do that, or complain about it later. I mean, if I did do that I'd only do it because I wanted that in a collection before it came out.

        Also, first time releases? I wouldn't pay the money up front either to watch it. If the series was that good, it would be released by pay-per-view or I could pick up a singular episode at a bookstore, and decide by myself. They're still going to release it on tape/DVD on a singular basis.

        If Babylon 5 came out like this now I would buy it. But it would be a decision by pre-viewing it rather than paying a lot of money for the whole lot.

          I will buy "Babylon 5", "Star Trek", "Futurama", "Farscape" and other good series direct to DVD products if there would be any.
