    Thanks as always, Mike. A few Redbox rentals in the mix, but no purchases for me this week. I spent more than I was intending to on Friday.

    Thanks a bunch Mike. I am a little confused about the release date of Friends with Benefits. I assume it is a typo - December 2 instead of December 12. I will be getting FWB and 30 minutes or less.

    I'll get 30 Rock when it goes on sale but there's nothing I'll be picking up this week. While I'm not buying them, Our Idiot Brother and 30 Minutes Or Less were both worth renting. Thanks for the prices! :)

    Added One Day to the Netflix queue, but otherwise nothing jumps out at me (until Smallville can be had for $25).

    If you're referring to Miracle Day, it's a UK release only. Amazon's selling it as an import. EDIT: Despite being shot 24p, it's a 1080i50 release, so anyone who's thinking about importing needs to make sure both their Blu-Ray player and their TV can handle 50Hz content.

    Thanks for the review Richard and the link up Mike. Looks like another one bites the dust for this week and I am down to Friends with benefits and I don't think I can resist any hi-def presentation with Mila Kunis in it. Hopefully a review soon?

    Couldn't pass by the display with the Adele concert CD/DVD pack at Target! Can't wait to hear and see it!

    That may or may not be a valid price. I bought two seasons of True Blood today at Sam's Club and they seemed aghast that they were marked for such a low price (when scanned, the register charged $37.98...I had to bring it to the cashier's attention). They had to get two managers involved and for a moment I wasn't sure if I was going to get the $18.88 price, even though they were clearly price-tagged at that amount (one manager asked the other if she "should override both, or just one?"). I did get the low price on both, but I think after the override the manager sprinted to the DVD section to pull them off the shelves to be re-priced. So, as usual, YMMV on this sale. If you can find sets that are actually price-tagged with the $18.88 price, I don't see how they can refuse to honor it. They also had season sets of Bones and The Tudors marked $12.88. I also saw The Smurfs for sale today in at least one store. Wasn't that supposed to be a Friday release?

    Interesting. The store I went to had them all tagged at that price. I thought it might be wrong also, but each and every one i examined were priced that way. I dont see how they could refuse to honor the price.
