Sopranos complete set in the works

Sopranos"Reserve lots of money for Christmas, 2008."

That's the word from HBO Home Video head Henry McGee, speaking at the DVD and Beyond industry conference. He's talking about a Sopranos complete set. TVShowsOnDVD.com verified the info with McGee, and says it will be an expensive set. Though I wonder what they mean by expensive, since TV fans are used to paying $150-300 for complete sets.

Maybe the set will have commentary by David Chase on that series finale, or maybe deleted scenes or other info that will give more closure (for you fans who need that). Or maybe they'll be more of that black scene, which Chase wanted to last 20 seconds longer than it did (HBO talked him out of it).

You know, one apparently unintended consequence of the ambiguous conclusion to the series might be that folks don't have too much reason to revisit the show. I don't know how post-Sopranos life has been for the rest of you, but I haven't had much of an urge to watch the show again. I have HBO On Demand and had been in the habit of watching most of the episodes that On Demand offered each month in order to try to guess how the show would progress. Now that I realize that Chase isn't willing to commit to any clear-cut resolution to the series, I just simply don't care to watch the old shows . . . and this isn't out of disgust for the final episode, which was I thought was wonderful. My point is that if individual episodes aren't supposed to add up to one specific conclusion, then why bother watching them? Maybe I'll change my mind in a year or two, but I can't see the DVD selling too well. Maybe I'm in the minority, though. Any thoughts? If you have On Demand, have you been watching the Sopranos?

Or you could just download the 32GB .torrent file, and save the 500 bucks :)

What complete set of anythingn cost $150 -300? The X Files, Star Trek, Stargate dvd releases (and many others) cost considerably more for the whole series.

I just hope they do it in the high def formats too. Otherwise, why would I rebuy?
