    I just got the second box set of the classic Britcom, ARE YOU BEING SERVED? and am really happy about having all the episodes. There's a bonus disc with some nice extras. Anybody else a fan of this show?

    Absolutley. Although I'm more a fan of the early years than I am the later years. I'm assuming it's a region two release, correct?

    Oh, and I'm a bit surprised that no e-tailer or B&M that I've seen seems to be carrying this item that's also due out Tuesday! [​IMG]

    I havent even seen the 1-5 box in stores, just occasionally the individual episodes...

    i wonder if anyone will have the 1-10 for less than that $200?

    I still remember getting the similar 14 disc Monty Python set from Costco for $99 right after it came out.

    I'm figuring that Costco and Borders are the B&M's to look for this at.

    As for the 1-5 box, I eventually got mine as a gift from my wife about 6 weeks after release; she bought it at Borders...used a coupon or a discount or something and picked it up for $97.74 (reg: $119.99).

    Borders is supposed to be carrying the 6-10 box for the same regular price. Considering that it's $89.98 at Amazon and $83.99 at DVDPlanet, I may be heading online for this purchase.

    The set is highly reccomended for fans of the series, it's great to now have the entire run in chronological order. The last disc in the set has some great new interviews with cast member, as well as a bonus disc with the first episode of "Allo Allo."

    You can get this set for $90.99 Canadian at Amazon.ca. And there is an active $10 coupon which would help cover the cost of shipping.

    Here is a $10 off $50 coupon that should work.
    MAPCARTEFRAN expires 10/31

    Oh man, if Costco has that 14-disc set, it is so MINE! [​IMG] They had the big Monty Python set, so I hope they have this one too. [​IMG]

    I like the series, but I just can't bring myself to pay so much for it. I really think it is overpriced.

    Most BBC releases are overpriced, and spread across an unnecessarily large number of discs.

    This is why I'll be looking for an exceptionally good deal on this set (and why I haven't purchased the first set yet).

    Yeah, what's the deal with most BBC releases (even new ones like Neverwhere) using single-layer discs?

    I can understand that obscure shows will be more expensive, but going over the $100.00 mark is the kiss of death for a product with me. That number is magic and I just can't bring myself to pay that much for anything. I think they hurt themselves in the long run.
