The Glee people are really milking everything they have. Even for a substantial show that I enjoy, I’d hate to get lost in the glare of ‘new’ and realize I’ve been duped. I’d even hate for it to happen to you, too.
Not only can you buy the overpriced Glee Director’s Cut Episode, Glee: The Music Volume 1, Glee: The Music Volume 2, Glee: The Music Volume 1 (Special Edition with 3 Bonus Songs) , every song on iTunes, and every episode on iTunes… but now you can also pre-order and purchase Glee, Vol. One: Road to Sectionals. I enjoy this show and support it… but for something that hasn’t even had an entire season there’s an awful lot of merchandise already. What’s more, lots of this stuff is the same. It’s just repackaged with a few bonus elements that probably only run a few minutes. Talk about wasting your money.
I’d implore you to learn from Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans. Some bought every season of the show as it released, but the smarter people held out to buy the entire Chosen collection of all the Buffy DVDs for what I estimate to be less than half the price. Unless you have a burning desire to re-watch Glee episodes now (and you know you can do that on Hulu.com – right?), save your time and money.
