I was wondering what Season 4 of Lost would eventually cost on DVD/Blu-Ray back when they cut it from the normal 22-23 episode season to a 16 episode season. I feel that since 13 episodes is just a little more than half of the previous seasons, the price should be equivilently around half the cost of the previous seasons. As far as fitting all 13 episodes on one Blu-Ray disc, it could be done but the quality would suffer. I have Season 3 on Blu-Ray and I think there are about 3 or 4 episodes per disc and it looks fantastic. There is a little greeting on the first disc by Lindelhoff and Cuse talking about it being the best possible version of Lost available. So I don't think they would compress them more to be able to squeeze more on to one disc. My guess is that it'll be a 4 disc set. Three discs just for the episodes and 1 disc with 1 or two episodes and special features.

I believe Lost season 3 on Blu Ray has 5 eps per disc and the 5th disc has the last 2 eps. As far as the new seasons go, the prices won't change. Look at the Shield, Nip/Tuck prices, and they are usually around that lenght long. Entourage is the same with HBO,

It probalby will be the same price, because they know suckers like me will buy it anyway. I will even double dip, and rebuy seasons 1 and 2 if/when they get put out on Blu-Ray. Then I'll sell or give away my DVD versions.

Yup, way to go isgrimner. Thanks to many people like you the 13 episode season will be $50. You must have all the super duper triple, extended editions of DVD's in your collection. All those DVDs of the same movie. Hollywood loves ya! I on the other hand am not a fool and will not spend the money and let them rip me off but to each their own. That's the biggest reason I don't own BSG on DVD with that split season crap charging full season prices.

That's why I still haven't nabbed season 1 of The Office nor will I until I can find it for 10 bucks or less. As to these microseasons, they need to be released at greatly reduced prices. Half a season should equal half the cost.

Actually, I normally wouldn't pay a huge price, but Lost is my favorite show so for it I will. I like Heros a lot, but I doubt I'll ever buy it. As far as double dipping and buying Blu-Rays of the first two seasons should they come out, I would do that because I could then give my DVD copies to my younger sister who also loves the show, but is in college and doesn't have much disposable income. I didn't start watching 24 untill season six started. I didn't want to buy 5 seasons worth of DVDs so I joined Blockbuster online to watch them all. I don't buy a lot of the complete TV series seasons. I own Lost, The Office, a couple of Scrubs, a couple Buffy's that were gifts, and some Aqua Teens. As far as my movie DVD/Blu-Ray collection. I don't think I have ever double dipped. I waited for the extended cuts of LotRs because I knew they were coming. If I own a DVD and later on a "new and improved" version comes out, I don't replace my original, though I may rent it to check it out.
