Share yer poison
I'm been doing some media acquisition as of late.
Looking up what highest quality format titles got, each variant of the release and looking up their prices to gauge whether its ultimately worth the buy/shelf space.
After I check to see if its available on the internet somewhere.
So far I've been severely disappointed with the internet. Having never looked before I kinda figured there would be giant collections holding certain medias something akin to game collections. Games collections are organized by consoles, roms/isos organized by region releases, manuals, box/disc/cartridge art all widely available on the net.
Movies/TV Shows have nothing like it. I figured there would be collections for say Netflix/Hulu/Kids' WB/Fox Kids/4Kids TV/Fox/MTV/Adult Swim/Cartoon Network/Disney Channel/History Channel/Movie Studios. There really isn't. Considering streaming services are trying to own all the media in the world I would think there would be some communities out there undermining them. Man was I wrong, Sure you can find specific things with public torrents but I thought those organized TB mega collections existed. All I come by are the disorganized ones.
Sadly the only other collections I've found that gets near the organization of games are JAV collections. Those collections got cover/back art and have the entire collection of releases organized by adult studio. Impressive stuff
Book collections truly win out though, Those fucks got the dewey decimal system on their side.
The VHS version/and DVD torrent is there but the shock still stands.
