In 2005 I paid £159.96 for Xena: Warrior Princess - The Complete TV Series (DVD) in a nice collector's pack that's like a big book.  Haven't got around to watching that yet. 


This one?



I just checked and I about paid the same but at least I watched them all. 



Yep, that's it.

I will watch it eventually, I've just got a bit of a backlog to get through.

Thanks people, I'm starting to feel a bit more normal now.

In 2005 I paid £159.96 for Xena: Warrior Princess - The Complete TV Series (DVD) in a nice collector's pack that's like a big book.  Haven't got around to watching that yet. 

Also in 2005 I bought Buffy The Vampire Slayer - The Complete DVD Collection for £134.99.  (This one I did finally watch last year.  Need to submit that sometime; it took forever to profile.)

I'm pretty sure I've probably spent over £50 on a single disc once or twice, but many films in my database don't have a price with them, as I got them before I started using DVD Profiler and a lot of the places where I got them online have now gone out of business, so I've no way to look up the information now.

There was a lovely Marvel Studios: The Infinity Saga - Collector's Edition Complete Box Set that came out (last year I think), but I've only just got over the therapy I required after seeing the price; I think it was over £400.

I remember considering The Skywalker Saga on 4K, but in the end I went for normal Blu-ray instead.

*Special Note:  Anything Star Trek related is ALWAYS good value, regardless of the price.

I paid $100+ for the Dawn of the Dead 4K set last year.


Is that just one disc?

I know it's beyond sad replying to your own posts but financial panic over.  For my Stargate SG-1: The Complete Series on DVD (yes, my recent purchase was a double-dip and to add insult to injury my DVD set is still unopened, so I never even used it), ziffit.com will give me 10p, yes an entire ten of our British pennies.

I've seen quite a few posts around these parts about how cheaply things can be bought in various places at various times, such as the entire back catalogue of, eh, everything, for $1 from Dollar Tree, (provided you don't mind them all sharing the same barcode; the Pound Shop in the UK just can't compete)!

What I don't remember seeing is anyone admitting to the most expensive disc etc they've ever bought.  Having just had my annual Black Friday blowout and cashed in all the vouchers etc I've collected over the past year, I've realised that a lot of physical media seems to have gone up - a lot.  I rarely used to spend over £20 on any Blu-ray or DVD disc, but this year there seemed to be quite a few.  I'm not sure what the most I've ever spent on a single disc is (I'll have to investigate that further), but buying Stargate SG-1: The Compete Series on Blu-ray, on import, was a sobering experience; (and it will be sobering as I can't afford to buy any beer now!)!  It cost £186.71 from Amazon, including import fees.  That's definitely the most I've ever spent on a single purchase.  (And no one please tell me it's now only £171.93, I already know. Or that it's only $1 from Dollar Tree, but shares a barcode with Dude Where's My Car?)

Anyone else got any confessions to make?  Don't be (too) ashamed, we're all tared with the same brush here.  You won't be ridiculed too much for your financial indiscretion.

We're up and down more than Star Trek movies.

I seem to be in the minority here, but always thought we were supposed to keep credits as close as possible to what is on the screen. I know I have done the 2 as one person each, credited as both.

Minor issue though, just keep contributing either way.


I have to say this was my view too, but it seems to be in the minority here.  I also have to say that it does mean that when using the desktop version of Profiler, the Credited As entry appears in the 'box' where you can toggle between cast and crew, which I don't think is especially useful.

Good day good people.

I can't ever remember this being discussed before, (but please feel free to put in a link or comment below if it has and you can find it or remember anything about it).

Sometimes in the on-screen credits, two people are entered as one line; e.g. Producer: Abigail & Zack Smith.

How do we contribute these?  At present, the way this is done seems a bit haphazard.

(I'm assuming here it's not made more complicated by either of them having a different Common Name.)

Thanks.

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot

Under a group heading "Special FX" in the end credits are four names, including both "Philip Beck" and "Philip Beck, Jr", the first above the other.  Different people?  Are they even valid?

Thank you all.

I quite like the sound of a Proclamation, although I'm such a humble person I'd probably find it a bit embarrassing.

Feeling a bit anxious about going out tomorrow, in case I'm mobbed in the street.    Maybe I should just stay home and watch films, until the excitment all blows over. Got the UHD Director's Edition of Star Trek: The Motion Picture today, in a nice box.  The company I bought it from (via eBay) was so nice it sent me two copies but only charged me for the one I ordered.  Stupid me, I let it know about its mistake.  Last time something like that happened I got four, nice, Criterion Collection Blu-rays that I hadn't even ordered.  In that case I did just hang onto them.  That probably makes me a bad person.    I'm probably going to lose my Star now.

For @&£$% sake! I got a Gold Star! 

After 12 years my true worth has been recognised.  Somehow, I feel just a little bit more special this afternoon.  I finally have evidence that my life actually does have a purpose.  It's something to cling to in these times of uncertainly and change, an anchor to hold tight upon, my rock of stability, the eye in a hurricane, a shining beacon in the darkness, an island of calm in an ocean of chaos, a sliver of sanity in a multiverse of decay and squalor, the original series in a franchise got mad. You probably get the idea...

I do have a few questions for those of you that have also been elevated to this incredibly prestigious position:

Do I need to learn a special handshake or something?
Where do I buy the t-shirt from?
Will Mr. Invelos be personally coming to visit me to give me my Star?
The award ceremony: is it a formal event that I need to dress up for?
Will people be able to tell as I walk along the street?
And most importantly, do I get paid more?

Finally, thanks to anyone who's ever taken the time to acknowledge anything that's I've ever written here.    I couldn't have done it without you.

Tortoise in Love: Sam Jones listed under the group heading "Sean's Children"

I don't know for sure, but a lot of local people (non-actors) had small parts in this film and it wouldn't surprise me if this was one of them.

As a weird aside and of no relevance whatsoever, this was filmed a few miles up the road from where I live and at the time I sat on a local development trust's community funding committee.  We gave the film £10,000 or £20,000 (I can't remember now) towards its post-production costs.  I think it got the maximum we could award and as it was the first time the committee had met, we were still trying to work out exactly what it was we were meant to be supporting and how much interest they'd be in the grant scheme, so it probably did pretty well out of us!  Most of the grants were for things like new village hall toilets and community allotments, etc.  It was also called The Husband Obedience Trials then. That's the sort of trivia that's too obscure for any pub quiz!

His name is all in capital letters, so make of that what you will; I've no idea how the "I" translates to lower case.

Until you no longer own it, since their content can disappear without a trace at any time.

I can understand people who want to subscribe to a streaming service to watch something once or twice, but I don't understand the desire to "purchase" digital content unless it can be downloaded locally and viewed whenever (and on whatever device) one chooses.

I agree.  Although I will say one thing, Red Fox AnyStream.  That certainly makes me feel a lot more comfortable about 'buying' digital content, especially when it's simply not available on physical media or only as a very expensive import.

Since the introduction of the alternate disc Id this is not a problem anymore, yes this makes it a box set.

One profile for the UPC/EAN and then two child profiles with the same disc Id but alternate versions.

Good day, fellow physical media enthusiasts!

A quick question.

I have a double feature, with two feature films on the same side of a single disc in a single keep case.

To contribute, do I make a box set profile, then separate profiles for each film and then add the latter as child profiles to the box set?

The separate profiles for each of the features seems very explicit in the Rules now, but the addition of the box set profile seems less clear, hence my question.

Thanks.

Hello

Quick question.

I'm about to submit the detail for seven seasons of a TV series.  The box set they're part of is already in the online database (I've just submitted an update for it), but I don't think the individual seasons are.

Each season comes in its own digipak, but they don't have their own UPC/EAN; only the box set itself has one of these.  Each season contains 3-6 discs.

So what do I submit the seasons under?  None have their own UPC/EAN and each has several disc IDs, so I don't know what one to use for each season in the latter case, if any.  And as the seasons aren't in the database, there's nothing to make an alternative version of. (I'm not submitting child profiles for each disc.)

Thanks people

The Addams Family (the 60's series).  Presently on Season 1.  DVD

Will be watching Star Trek Picard (Season 2) when it comes out next month (I think). Streaming on Amazon.
