Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Now who did *that*???


Last night, while we were setting up the Wii, I was using the TV remote control, mainly to get the aspect ratio all correct. And yet, by the time I went to bed, I couldn't find the darned thing anywhere. I had a basic search of the lounge this morning, but it was still playing hard to get. I think this evening Sarah and I may have a fun and entertaining game of "hunt the remote". It will be slightly annoying if we can't find it. Although on the bright side, it's one less distraction in life if I can't actually get the TV operating (I'm not actually sure how much can be done without the remote, in all honesty).

Oh well...
Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

I'm not being terminally thick here, am I?

Just did an Amazon search for Buffy the Vampire Slayer on DVD. I'm not necessarily buying it straightaway, indeed, it's going on my wishlist with the vague hope that other people might buy it for me at Christmas if I don't get round to buying it for myself before then.

But I digress as usual.

I appear to have spotted something anomalous:

Season 1: £11:77
Season 2: £12:52
Season 3: £11:99
Season 4: £11:77
Season 5: £11:77
Season 6: £14:97
Season 7: £11:77

Total: £86:56 (all prices are from DVDs described as "New Edition")

Complete Collection (boxed edition of all seven seasons): £129:99

It seems to me that there doesn't appear to be anything extra in the Complete Collection as opposed to the single season sets - indeed, the Complete Collection description states, "all the special features from the original Buffy DVD box sets," (emphasis mine) so it might even contain less than the "New Edition" DVDs.

There's not really a great incentive to buy the Complete Collection, is there, really? Unless anyone else knows any different?
