What the Hell Were They Thinking?

So since I'm a super geek who has loved fantasy and sci fi for years, I went and shelled out my twenty bucks for a copy of the Harry Potter DVD, which just came out today.

It's decent enough. The movie itself is just as cool as it was when I saw it in the theater. The problem is when you try to watch the extras, all the deleted scenes that one is supposed to get as the benefit of shelling out the money for a DVD.

They're hidden behind a maze of little games you play to find clues, and once you get enough clues, you can watch the scenes. Fortunately, you can just go here to get the inside scoop on how to find them, but really, come on! Why should I have to click through one puzzle after another just to watch the deleted scenes that I payed for? And it's not like I only have to do this once, a DVD player can't save these sort of things, so I have to do it each and every time I want to watch them.

Damn that sucks.
