One scoop or two?

TV addicts may recall the Seinfeld episode in which George (Jason Alexander) is excoriated for going into a bowl of dip twice with the same potato chip. The term "double-dipping" came into vogue shortly thereafter, and was used in everything from business to politics to, strangely, the world of DVD releases.

"Double-dipped" DVDs refer to movies released on DVD with a minimum of extras and featurettes, then released again months later as "Special Editions" or "Director's Cuts" or the like. Peter Jackson doubledipped to wild success with his Lord of the Rings DVDs; Sony Pictures, how-ever, had far less success with their no-really-we-swearit-looks-better "Superbit" DVD collection.

George Lucas, perhaps the unheralded king of doubledipping, goes to the well yet again with new, retrodipped versions of the first three Star Wars films; if you've ever wanted to see the Original Trilogy on DVD in all its prehistoric, mattelined, non-THX glory, your chance will come early next month. (Yes nerds, Solo shoots first.) It's a "Limited Edition," so be sure to purchase them quickly before they disappear forever!

Double-dipped HD — and Blu-Ray DVDs are coming down the pipeline as well; start saving your money (or selling your old DVDs off on eBay) now.
