Re: Battlestar Galactica: Complete Series Blu-ray Collection -- July 28th

Yup, still waiting here, too. Which is fine. Gave me a chance to watch the entire series of Veronica Mars. Well, it was fine. Now that I'm done with VM, I'd like to watch Battlestar.

Not only that, but the first two Bourne flicks were also available before the release of the "box set." Not so for Spidey. This would seem to pump up Bourne's single-disc release and Spidey's box...

Because, based on the dismal sales numbers we've all seen, they obviously think the Blu-Ray sales they'll lose over the term of the deal will amount to less than what they're being paid in the deal.

I really don't think it's much to expect of people. Hell, give it an easily identifiable case and train your employees to confirm at the time of rental.
