Those are all very good points. I think more and more dvd box sets have been the way to go. I've really started to notice that alot of shows are not airing very much in re-runs anymore after they finish their original air time. And I'm assuming the reason is, there's really not much need for re-runs, because if you want to watch the show, just buy it and watch it on your own time. I guess that's the best way to go because then you can watch however much you want, when you want, without commercials, and then the tv channels can focus on airing new things, rather than airing the same stuff over and over. I guess ultimately, I just answered my own question.
