Okay, so you’re a devotee of “Gilmore Girls” and you missed Lorelai’s proposal to Luke because your TiVo cut off the end. Or perhaps you grew up with “The Brady Bunch” and want to relive your childhood crush on Maureen McCormick. Or maybe you just want to revisit your favorite “Friends” moments-without waiting for the repeats to roll around.
A growing number of TV fans are finding they can readily enjoy the series that made them laugh, cry, scream or throw popcorn at the screen-by purchasing complete seasons on DVD. From classics such as “The Andy Griffith Show” and “Dragnet” to today’s biggest hits, including “CSI” and “The O.C.,” hundreds of shows are now available for collection and home viewing.
Not only do DVD collections give viewers complete seasons-or, in the case of short-lived cult faves, the entire series-on just a few discs (say goodbye to that collection of commercial-filled videotapes), but they often include extras to satisfy the most rabid fans: conversations with stars and show creators, making-of featurettes, screen tests and more.
One convenient way to find your top series is through the Columbia House DVD Club. Not only do the catalogs feature dozens of new TV and movie titles each month, but the club runs frequent specials, allowing members to build their collections without spending a fortune.
