do that, and I can't see the reason. You'd think that if they want to drive eyeballs to the current telecasts, they'd release DVD/BD sets several months
in advance so anyone who wants to catch up to a series could do so before it starts back up. But nooooooo.
I turned a friend on to the LOST DVD's several years ago, hoping he would catch up and could join the "water cooler" discussions during the season. But they don't release these things in time for anyone to catch up before the season starts unless they "binge-view". So, 4 years later, he's still always a season behind and misses all the fun of sharing the latest episode with friends. All these serialized shows are like that, and I've never understood it. Seems like bad business to me.
