So I bought it, peeled off the plastic wrap, slid it out of its plastic slipcover, unfolded each cardboard section one by one, and took the seven discs out and stuck them in my slim jewel cases. First, it's fucking long. It must be like two feet in length unfurled. Second, well, there isn't a second, I guess I can say again: IT'S FUCKING LONG. It's just I've never bought any DVD set with more than four discs.
I saw the first two seconds of the pilot on DVD today (the screen just saying LOST), at this rate I'll be done when I'm about 105.79-years-old, excluding the bonus materials. My antennae suck so I almost danced the samba when I saw the clarity in that four-letter word, "LOST".
Who will win the war for the new format, BD or HD-DVD, where it's feasible an entire TV season can be stored on one disc? Imagine owning the entire X-Files series on 9 discs! Talk about storage! At least, conveniently, it will still be a disc and not some kind of tiny chip or a brain implant. Okay, bye.
