THE INCOMPLETIST - Christmas Wishlist

Usually, The Incompletist is about things I want to own on DVD but can't get.  And by usually, I mean that one time I did The Incompletist.  However, with Christmas about to hit us again, I thought I'd post a "Christmas Wishlist".  Things I don't own on DVD, not because I can't get them, but rather because I just haven't got them yet.  Perfect for gifts!  (He hints, knowing that he hasn't left enough time for anyone to get them.  So here they are in no particular alphabetical order:
Archer - Season 2.

Coupling - Series 4

Dexter - Season 8.

Game of Thrones - Season 2.

The IT Crowd - Series 3

The IT Crowd - The Internet is Coming.

Justified - Season 4

Luther - Series 3.

Veep - Season 1.

Looking at my compulsion to collect DVDs... like movies I don't want to own, even to complete the set.

Being a completist I want the complete set of stuff I own on DVD.  But some times I don't like a film or season... but not owning it bugs me.  This is my attempt to exorcise the completist demons by sharing why I don't want certain discs in my collection.

Part of my completist urge is I don't like incomplete box sets.  You know, the "Season 1 to 3" of a 5 season series.  One exception is Scrubs.  I was happy to buy the Season 1 - 8 box set of Scrubs (Scrubs: The Complete Seasons 1-8) and not to buy Season 9 (Scrubs: The Complete Ninth and Final Season).

This series of blogs is designed to look at a TV show (or perhaps movie series) but a completed show or movie series.  To look at the whole thing from a completist's point of view.

It is designed to look at the when a show "got good", if it went bad and whether it came back.  It also looks, briefly at the ending (without spoilers) to say whether there was resolution or if the destination was worth the journey.
