box set complainers
Just a note to remind those buying 'complete' box sets that 'christmas speacials' mean just that...these are always 'normal' episodes that go out around christmas time, have a christmas theme etc. Sometimes they may be slightly extended but they are NOT Feature Films. So those thinking they have been short changed when a box set doesn't contain two full length films as well need to think again. The box set says all 'episodes' that is, normal length tv weeklys and the Christmas Specials which are also just episodes...Ride Again and the original Steptoe and Son were Feature Films therefore NOT episodes as you would normally understand it. I would not have ever expected them in a set marked as all episodes and christmas specials...not Play's mis selling, perhaps your mis interpretting ... The features, as you can see are available in a set of their own...As for buying individual sets then being dissapointed when mega sets come out, that's just a reminder to hold your guns a bit..why buy a movie you love for example knowing that there's going to be a sequel or two when you know for sure they will be released as a box or gift set down the line...we've all done it once at least but we learn by it. I was working hard on Only Fools and Horses and you can see how many are there to buy and they are still way expensive individually then...they bring out a mega set, everything ever made...doh ! live and learn eh?
