Being in an academic library, my first priority is to order whatever the
faculty request for class use, but for my discretionary funds, my
informal policy is to designate a percent for TV series and then try to
pick a selection of titles that I think could be of use in class, plus a
title or two that college students would enjoy (i.e. The Simpsons).
Generally, I've picked up the first season plus the "best" season as
rated by the critics.

When asked about additional seasons, I explain that we can't afford to
buy everything, and suggest trying interlibrary loan or a subscription
to Netflix to get hold of the others.
