      They aren’t that much if you think about it because you get a magazine and a DVD for the price of a single DVD.
      The only thing you don’t get is the Special Features, but I don’t watch them anyway.

    i stopped collecting these after issue 79 because the dvds didnt have special features or restored bits. i just get the dvds themselves now. i really the like the magazine though. I wish they sold the magazine seperatly.

      I think you have your facts mixed up there. The DVDs do have restoration despite what some claim. People have just been misquoting the publishers, they feature no further editing or restoration than appears on the DVDs regardless of what it is (removed songs, improved picture quality, removed nex time clips).

      FP still does it (or at least mine does) but it can be quite eratic sometimes they have it, sometimes they don’t. Sometimes they’ll get one, sometimes they’ll get ten.

      No, someone added that series, but it wasn’t the publishers.
