Multi volume/split season nonsense

"Five stars for this classic series, but again, I won't buy in.
One dud star for CBS/Paramount and (others).
More multi-volume, overblown pricing from Paramount. Buying any complete season (via split seasons) generally will run at least $50.00...for something that should run in the mid thirties (as other complete seasons "generally" do). In this case (as of this review), a whopping overpriced $80.00.
CBS/Paramount will keep releasing the split season nonsense as long as there are buyers (albeit emotionally based buying based on fear of not getting or having, or "just gotta have")...guaranteed. It's a venerable cash cow for them; from a business standpoint, they'd be insane to stop releasing split seasons (they can't stop pinching themselves with joy on all the lemmings going for the bait).
Guaranteed Paramount (and others) will/would stop the nonsense if the cash register doesn't ring...it's all numbers.
Make a statement with the pocketbook/wallet in conjunction with "we will only buy complete seasons." It's what's called market demand.
As the classic Barnum and Baily statement goes..."A sucker is born every minute." How appopro...and Paramount (and others) are laughing all the way to the bank.
Does'nt make dollars and sense !

"Why would one purchase Season 1 Volumes 1 and 2 for $80.00 when you can purchase them individually for about $25.00 tax included.
