    I wonder if anyone is going to post that corny picture of the roundup with muscles ! I remember they did that when Dave used to be late with the roundup, it was hilarious!

    Mike, don't apologize for being late, it's always a little Sunday joy to read your Roundup whenever it is posted. (You too Pat!)

    Now! Star Trek-Next Gen.: Comp. Series $304.99, $450.48, and $499.99! How does that break down per show or year? Is Paramount ever going to drop Star Trek prices? [​IMG]

    Well Mike,

    Albeit inadvertently, you have just shown how one can take things for granted, and how when they are not there how much one can miss them.

    So, a HUGE thank you for all your work this Sunday, and every Sunday. It's a fantastic service.

    Thank you!!!!

    Dan

    Thanks Mike and Patrick.

    Late or not, you save me mucho time each week as your post condenses everything into one easy to use chart. Saves me the hassle and time of hunting through the Sunday's circulars or visiting countless websites.

    (And you always include something that's coming out that I missed seeing before. This week it's "Paul Lynde’s Halloween Special." Gotta get it just so I can take a trip down Nostalgia Lane.)

    I'll be picking up:

    Entourage: Season Three- Part Two
    Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer
    The Jungle Book

    As always, thanks for the prices! [​IMG]

    At $305, that's less than $45 per season. I'm not super familair with ST prices but I think that's pretty cheap for them.

    Jungle Book and F4 for me. I thought Surf's Up was this week, must be next week. Caligula, I've haven't seen it in almost 20 years, I'd love to see the unrated version. Is it the same as in the movie, that left a lasting memory.

    Thanks for all the hard work on the roundup! I really missed the usual info on Sunday morning. Much appreciated [​IMG]

    Misery, Prom Night, Jungle Book, & maybe F4 for me.

    Thanks everybody--for all the kind words.

    I'm kind of amazed myself that I am usually able, somehow (often with Patrick Sun's able help!) to have the RoundUp ready for its Sunday morning "deadline."

    There have just been a few things over the past few weeks that have been getting in the way of me getting the darn thing done on time.

    So, thanks again for your understanding and support.

    =======================

    For me this week: I think I'll double-dip on The Jungle Book. My new working theory (read "rationalization") on Disney double-dips is that I am putting aside all my first-issue Disney DVDs for the grandchildren! [​IMG]

    I also think I'll be picking up that "best of" set of the Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour. I was a huge Campbell fan as a kid and I figure if I can find that disc for $11.99 at BB, I will either have a flood of warm & fuzzy childhood images opened up to me or else I will be hopelessly embarassed. I am sincerely hoping it will be the former. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the RoundUp Mike and Patrick!

    I thought this was going to be a slow week for me, but now that I see it in RoundUp form, I realize there are several titles I'm interested in...

    For sure - - Universal Horror, Jericho: Season 1 and Paul Lynde’s Halloween Special. Plus, once I figure out which "bonus DVD" edition of Fantastic Four is the best way to go, I will pick that up too.

    I wasn't planning on buying The Jungle Book since it is not one of my Disney favorites, but at $13.99, I may take the plunge. Speaking of which, will we EVER see a platinum edition of 101 Dalmatians?? It is the title I most want, and it looks like it will be the last one out the gates... [​IMG]

    Don't forget folks, that if you plan on getting Ratatouille and want to do a Best Buy pre-order, you can also take $5 off The Jungle Book...bringing it down to $9.99 at BB.

    That's what I think I'll do.

    Seems to me there is another deal just like it at BB. Maybe on a Meet the Robinsons pre-order.
