    Do all of those “Special Features” listed for the Barrel also come on the “Final Season” Blu-ray set? I already own all the previous Seasons but obviously, I want all these great-sounding Features as well without shelling out for the Barrel. The Apron and other trinkets are a nice touch for those that do wish to purchase the Complete Series but I’m only interested in actual Video Content.
