Due to Addicted2DVD's un-buried thread I was looking over my own collection. I have a flag that tells me if I've completed a series.

But it also gave me pause because there's a new thing happening in the past decades: revivals.

So what does constitute a completed set for you? Let me give an example. Gilmore Girls & Veronica Mars

Gilmore Girls completed it's original run after seven seasons, Veronica Mars after three. Does that mean when I have that I have a complete series? But then last year there was an additional season for Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars respectively. Does it make my collection incomplete? Do you consider this to be a new series? Basically like The Connors are to Roseanne?

What about that new season of 24 with the new character replacing Jack Bauer? That new season of Prison Break?

Let me guess: You don't think about this at all like I just did

Dunno but if I was a fan I would probably collect them all. But you could at least claim that you have a complete collection of the series original run.

As far as I am concerned... I mostly worry about the original run. But if the revival comes out on disc I would consider getting it to have everything.

I treat the separately.

For example, Battlestar Galactica. The 70's one is on it's own from it's remake/revival.
Same thing with Will & Grace.
Doesn't matter if it's been decades or just a few years between them or if it's the same cast or not.

I also would treat it separately. I have the complete original Outer Limits series and some of the new ones and I treat them as a separate series.

yeah... the more I think about it the more I see the revival series as a seperate series.

Surely it depends on the series?

The new Dynasty is clearly not a continuation of the original, so it's not the same series, whereas Dallas clearly IS the same series.

The 2017 Twin Peaks wasn't a separate series - it was a direct follow-on, so it counts as the same series.  Same for The X-Files.  Jordan Peele's Twilight Zone is a new series, not a follow-on from the Serling original (or the '80s version, or the '90s, all of which are separate series).

The V remake is a different series to the original, so counts as separate, as does the most recent Battlestar Galactica.

I'd take it on a case-by-case basis.
