    Big week for me. I'll be picking up

    The Dead Zone: Season Five
    Fantastic Four
    The Sand Pebbles
    Seinfeld: Season Eight
    and I'll probably wait to pick up the Leone titles when they go on sale in a couple of months (like all catalog titles seem to do nowadays).

    Thanks for the prices! [​IMG]

    EDIT: Let me add how well separating the SD, HD and BR titles has worked. I didn't think it was neccesary when Mike first asked people's opinion on splitting them up but it's worked out pretty well.

    Warning on the $10 Target dvds. Most of them are marked $10 on the displays for the fullscreen versions only. I took the widescreen "Breakup" and "You, Me & Dupree" to the checkout; they rang up as $19.99 each and I showed the cashier the ad. She called over someone and they gave it to me since the ad showed these titles but nothing about full versions on them (except "Blood Diamonds").

    Highlander: The Search For Vengeance for me. This is the new anime, not the withheld-from-release-because-it-turned-out-so-incredibly-bad Highlander: The Source live action film.

    UPDATE: There's a Best Buy exclusive of an on-pack comic book on some copies of Highlander: The Search for Vengence. Minimum 6 per store. This appears to be a reprint or excerpt of the first issue of the Highlander comic book from Dark Horse:

    Thanks as always Mike & Patrick.

    Only definite for me this week is Seinfeld: S8 most likely at DD.com.
    Pricing: $32.39 - 6.48 (20%) = $25.91

    I'll grab Fantastic Four: Extended Edition if I can find it locally for around $15 including the Movie Cash.

    All I can remember is that I enjoyed it as a pre-teen, but I can't recall much more than the overall concept. Here are some links that may help you out:

    Series overiew from ToonTracker.com:

    Series summary from TV.com:

    Good WTYFGH DVD review (I couldn't find a review on HTF):
    http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=28387

    Personally I'm not going to buy it now, but will probably rent it to check it out.

    Note that Target has more TV titles on sale than were listed in the ad. Yesterday I picked up Firefly: The Complete Series and Bones: Season 1 for $16.99 each. There were lots more at great prices, including some very cheap Simpsons sets.

    Cool, I didn't even know this was coming out. I might try it for $12.99. Can't be worse than the Quentin MacLeod ones...

    I'm definately planning on getting CHiPs. I want to pick up Mission: Impossible Season 2 but I don't think I can afford it this week and I'm interested in Coming To America, Fantastic Voyage and VTTBOTS SEs but I'll wait on those too. I already picked up the Fantastic Four EE, Wal-Mart had it out a week early.

    I notice Ambushed (1998) was supposedly released this week too, but only Amazon and DDD list it. Has anyone seen it at local stores?

    Leone boxset can be had for $65 at FYE (no rebate).

    They also had the separate movies for ~$25.
