"Don't buy this set yet if you are thinking about it because HBO has announced they are planning a "Premium" Sex and the City release this coming December, right before Christmas. The set will include all six seasons, with new disc art and new "lavish" packaging. (They're hyping it up to look really nice, so we'll see). Finally, there will be new content and extras on the discs. There hasn't been word on the picture quality. I hope HBO runs through the seasons and cleans up the picture and sound to pristine condition. So, mark your calenders for December if you're a big Sex and the City fan because the "Premium" is coming your way."

"As of this review date, one can pickup "Sex and the City - The Complete Series (Collector's Giftset)" for the same price as this set at Amazon.com. However the Collector's Giftset due to be released on November 1, 2005 will have the following extras:
· Sex Essentials - a video jukebox for advice, quips and quotes on dating, sex, fashion and more. · Location, Location, Location - a guide to the restaurants, clubs and boutiques frequented by Carrie and friends. · Naughty or Nice? - the ultimate test to find out which character from the series you are most like. · You Can Quote Me On It - a "finish that phrase" game that tests your knowledge of the show. · En-SEX-lopedia - an all encompassing guide that takes a look back at the defining moments in dating, fashion, friendship and relationships.
Now its up to you, wait for couple of months and pick up the series in nice packaging and all the above cool extras at no additional cost or be impatient and buy the bare bones version today. Either way the cost is same. Now what was that saying mother always used to say "Patience is a Virtue" she was right after all!! "
Great Series, but what about the Price?

"I love this series. I saw a couple of episodes out of order and had a little bit of a hard time watching, but when I started renting the series and watching, I couldn't stop until the whole show was over. The thing that confuses me about this box set, however, is the fact that if you buy each season separately you save over fifty dollars. Can someone enlighten me as to why it is more expensive to buy the box set? Thanks"
Not a review, just an observation and a question

"I haven't purchased this set, but by my count, it'd be a lot cheaper to buy the individual seasons rather than the Complete Series box set (actually, the best deal seems to be to buy the Seasons 1-5 box set, then Season 6-I and Season 6-II individually). If the box set contains extras not found in the individual season releases, that might make it a worthwhile purchase....
Which leads me to my question: does the Complete Series box set include something extra that you won't get if you purchase the seasons individually? Seasons 2, 3, 4, 6-I, and 6-II, contain 3 discs, and Seasons 1 and 5 contain 2 discs, for a grand total of 19 discs. Yet, the contents of the Complete Series box set is listed at 20 discs? Where is that extra disc coming from? Would anyone who has this box set care to comment or write a review on that?"

"Amazon is currently selling each of these seasons individually for $20.00 each, give or take some pennies. That's $140.00 for all seven packages. They're also selling the excellent Sex and the City - The Complete Series (Collector's Giftset) for about $200 -- and though sometimes that price inexplicably drops or goes up by a few bucks, I've never seen it go as high as $220, which is the price they're currently asking for this one "collection".
If you actually purchase all of these, in their flimsy plastic packaged glory for $220.00 when you could get the entire thing for as low as $140 by simply buying individually, the more fool you. Here's hoping you're too smart to make that mistake. And that Amazon.com will STOP DOING THIS, as this is the third time I've caught them inflating the price of a DVD collection when they come cheaper on their own."
