What the... Not best pleased about this, I must say.

If you want to complain (as I have), send an email about it to If you'd like a ready-written email, just click this link and add your name at the end. (FYI, this is the same as the letter I sent, which also mentions some sound effects that are missing during the title sequence.)

Complaining might seem pointless, but their responses so far indicate that any feedback is passed on to the relevant people -- if enough people voice their displeasure, things might change. Do remember to be polite though -- not only does it make them more likely to listen, it's also not the fault of the person who'll read & respond to your email.

Collection Count

Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.

Absolutely no changes this week, which my bank balance will be happy about... although there is another big Complete Series set currently winging its way over from the States... Still, 'til that turns up (hopefully next week), there's always a new stat of the week.

Number of titles in collection: 1,183 [no change]
Of which DVDs: 1,094 [no change]
Of which Blu-rays: 89 [no change]

Number of discs in collection: 2,895 [no change]
Number of films in collection: 1,246 [no change]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 4,051 [no change]

Statistic of the week:

Number of Steelbooks:
(1.9% of the total)

Steelbooks: pretty packaging. I like pretty packaging. Ergo, I like Steelbooks.

See you next week, faithful reader.
