A missed Buffy opportunity

Fox blows it again with Buffy the Vampire Slayer. From Entertainment Weekly:

There are some things you can't state often enough. The Aston Martin DB5 was the greatest Bond car ever. "The Empire Strikes Back" is the best "Star Wars" movie. And "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" is one of the seminal TV shows of the last 50 years. In the top 10. Not open for debate. So it's particularly noteworthy that now you can get all seven seasons, 144 episodes' worth of slayage, 40 discs' worth of ground broken by creator Joss Whedon, in one handy box. Behold "Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Chosen Collection." And behold a colossal missed opportunity.
Reviewer Marc Bernardin's point is that for a $200 collection, Fox should have loaded the DVDs with tons of extras. Sounds like a good point to me.

I have to agree. I bought the collection hoping for something to ease the pain caused by the end of the show. And while it is a fantastic collection, some more in depth featurettes etc would have gone down so well and ensured the collections place in the dvd hall of fame!
