You've GOT to be kidding!!
I expected to pay maybe $40-$50 for this DVD. But $99?? When the actual
price of a DVD is DOUBLE what you thought it would be.....Guess I will just
watch the video I taped off of Sci-fi.

Well, the Simpsons is like $35, and thats about 8 hours long. Taken is
about 16-18 hours long, so you'd just figure it's about twice as much as the
Simpsons at $35, that gives me $70. Okay, market it, $69.99.

The thing I don't get is this was on the Sci-Fi channel. It's basic cable
(I'd think everywhere, but atleast AFAIK).

I can see how they can get the Sopranos to be $89.99, even though its 13
hours long. That's HBO, that's premium cable. If you don't get HBO, then
this is how you can watch the show, great show btw.

<< Taken is that long? I thought it was like a 10 hr deal >>

All told, there's around 840 minutes of actual content in the mini-series
itself....about 14 hours.

However, I've seen one site listing this collection at 1008 minutes, meaning
there may be almost another three hours of specials/bonuses if this figure is
true.

It's got to be less than that! They have it on sale for $99.99 in
Canada which is about $76 US right now.

I forget exactly how much I paid... $85.00 US I think. I'm watching
it for the first time now and it is worth every penny to me. But
that's me...everyone is different.
