Collection update:

I didn’t go too crazy this month, only spending about $25 on DVDs. Thanks to post-Thanksgiving deals on Amazon, I was able to stretch that $25 pretty well and pick up a few TV seasons I’ve had on my wishlist for a long time. These items haven’t arrived yet, but they’re paid for, so I’m including them in this month’s update. Here’s what I picked up in November:

  • Friends, Season 6 – I own seasons 1-5 of this and have been hoping to complete my collection in the near future. At only $3.99 for a fulfilled-by-Amazon, like-new copy, I couldn’t pass it up! Unfortunately, the rest of the seasons were more expensive, so I’ll have to wait to collect those.
  • Mad Men, The Final Season: Part 1 – The DVD that prompted my little Amazon splurge! The original price is RIDICULOUS for a half-season, but it was on sale for only $10. That’s a great price, considering how much I love this series and how eager I am to do a re-watch before the final episodes air.
  • Sex and the City, Season 3 – Another show that I’m slowly collecting the complete series of. I picked up seasons one and two at Target earlier this year. Season 3 was a $6.99 Amazon pick-up.
  • That ’70s Show, Season 2 – Aaaand yet another show that I’m slowly collecting! We’re seeing a trend here, with the exception of Mad Men. I’ve been slow to collect this one since it’s usually available on Netflix. (Sometimes it disappears for a few days, but they usually renew the license for it.) However, I’m still hoping to collect all seasons. It’s one of those shows I can re-watch endlessly, and I’ve loved it since its original TV run.

I also received Pitch Perfect as a gift from my dad. I’ve already watched and enjoyed it. He saw it while traveling, in its theatrical run — one of the few films he’s seen without me, as we usually visit the theater together. (Yes, I am a 20-something who enjoys hanging out with my parents. They’re awesome. Sue me!) We are suuuuper “aca-cited” to see the sequel together next year.
