I love Mister Ed, but I don't understand why, if the first "best of" set was profitable enough to make a second "best of" set worthwhile to produce, we can't have season-by-season box sets. I don't want someone else deciding for me what the "best of" is; I want to watch the show in order of broadcast and enjoy it.
So, a year or two from now will there be four, five or more "best of" sets out there -- in other words the entire series -- all jumbled out of order? Or, will the seasonal box sets be released thus making these sets worthless?
Or, worse yet, will half the series eventually be released as "best of" sets while the other half sits collecting dust in a warehouse somewhere forever because someone was too cheap to create seasonal box sets?
If you're a fan of Bewitched, Gilligan's Island, Green Acres, and others, you get to buy the entire series a year at a time, but not us Mister Ed fans! We get a pre-selected mess for the price of a seasonal box set.
Neeeeeeeigh to that! I'll bet if Mister Ed were alive today he'd have something to say.
