    The Disclaimer
     

    Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price.

    I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp. The titles included are those that I am interested in...as well as those which I consider will be of interest to a majority of consumers (and sometimes I’ll miss one!). I don't get paid for this, and I don't have the time to list every DVD. So, please don't complain! If there is a title not included in the RoundUp that you want to see, PLEASE just look it up yourself, and be nice enough to post and share the results with everyone!

    Note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the RoundUp. They set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is no way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. And, Circuit City is still out of business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their prices anyway).

    I'm betting on an Amazon price match for Enterprise S3. It's funny...I assumed S2 would go on sale right when S3 came out. So far, nothing. And it's never been "on sale" as far as I know.

    Thanks Mike!!

    Amazon is now collecting Indiana sales tax--so that incentive to consider them is out the window.

    I pre-ordered The Killing Fields at $19.59 back in September, and will wait for a Criterion Sale to buy Throne of Blood.

    Thanks for the RoundUp!

    I have Archer and Runner Runner on the review agenda, but neither has arrived. Looking forward to seeing Archer again; I remember it as a standout season.

    Amazon price matched at some point today.

    Here's something funny: season 4 is currently going for $117 on Amazon. April Fool's joke since it's coming out on 4.1? :rolleyes:

    I am working hard on the review for Enterprise S3 - it's bloody good (and a darn sight better than I recall...and I enjoyed it even back then). Hope to have up tonight, tomorrow at the latest.
