The entire series is available on DVD for under $50 on Amazon.
Who watches DVDs anymore?
If I may go on a mini-rant...
As streaming becomes more and more popular, I actually think it's very smart to buy DVDs. Reason being is that streaming services and digital downloads don't represent "real" ownership. You need something physical to really own something, otherwise your "ownership" relies on external dependencies that could be taken away or jeopardized at any time.
So, if you're really a big Twilight Zone fan... I'd say the way to go is to own the DVDs.
"Real ownership" isn't important to me. If Apple Music and iTunes go away, I'll just buy what I want again.
I agree. For those things one really cherishes, I think it's a good idea to physically possess it.
I think the time isn't far off where you won't be able to buy some things very easily.
The last three computers I have purchased didn't include CD/DVD/BlueRay drives. Physical media are fun for collecting (just like I do with vinyl records), but they are on the bullet train to antiquation.
Why would something for which there is demand not be sold?
Yes, I know. I'm suggesting that real ownership of media is on the bullet train to antiquation.
which is fine with me, it's weird for people to own other people's intellectual property anyway
You seem pretty cool with digital ownership or licensing, so that's fine. I just think the terms of digital ownership are hugely slanted towards the seller and the potential for the buyer to get hosed is high. Your comments suggest you don't see it that way, which is fine. I'm just a caveman on this topic.
