One thing that convinced me to purchase was the cool plastic vacuformed packaging, totally in the 60s style of the show, cleverly with season 3 being red, since it was the "redshirt" season when it was killed off...but I have to say I have never had any single purchase come with so much shrink wrap! Each season has a cardboard sleeve surrounding 8 jewel boxes, so of course that is shrinkwrapped inside the cool plastic case, which is also shrinkwrapped, then all three cases are in a low cardboard shelf case so the entire package is shrinkwrapped AGAIN! Is that really necessary?
Now, since I have all these episodes memorized anyway, will I ever watch them? mrmouse claims he's been negligent in his Classic Trek education, so it seems Starship School might soon be in session for him... ;)
(FYI, the Amazon.com price is excellent, but Costco.com has free S&H this week only, so you'll only pay $239.99 + tax, which is about $7 less than Amazon for me. I had been looking since Christmas at my local Costcos but have never seen them in stock again, so I took advantage of the free S&H off this week...but if you have other Costco DVD items you'd like, this is the week to avoid the store crowds...)
