    too bad they didn’t release this earlier

    i have the entire collection bought season by season all but the 8 and 9 are the “fat” packs. initially we spent between $70-80 per season by getting them on ebay when they were retailing for between $100-120. By the time we got seasons 8 and 9 in slim packs we spent i think about 20 for each (in addition to the movie for about $10). all in all i couldn’t say how much we spent but it was a hell of a lot… such is the life of early adopters.
