Women. If it weren't for them, there'd be no civilization. (quote from Kuffs)

[c]Posted Image[/c]

Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed advertisements, the Sunday of the week of release (so as to catch any week-of-release sale prices). All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. If a price is marked "$_N/A_" in the grid, it means that this title is not shown as available on that chain's website or perhaps in their ads...but it COULD still be in-stores!

$_"LP" means the advertisement says "Low Price", and $_"HP" means the advertisement says "Hot Price". Use of either of these in the Roundup grid indicates that I could not locate a definate price for the item, and the ad is all I have to go on. Retailers use these phrases in advertisements so that they do not violate MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) agreements with the studios. Doing so can cost them thousands or even millions of dollars in co-op advertising funds.

I only include the titles I feel like including. In fact, the titles are pretty much the ones I'm personally interested in, with few exceptions. I don't get paid for this, and I don't have time to devote to doing every DVD. I have a lovely wife and a five-year-old son I'd rather spend time with. Please don't complain. If there is a title not included in the Roundup that you want to see, just look it up yourself, and be nice enough to post and share the results with everyone...like I do!

Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

Thanks again, Dave. Nothing for me, but I'll probably rent The Hunted.

Hoping for a bit of a better price on B5. I may seek this one used.

Were did you hear 24.99 for futarama season 2 at Target? I really hope so because I don't feel like paying 35.99. I will have to check it out. Thanks for the roundup! Troy

Thanks Dave. Nothing for me this week. There was a rumor a while back that Timecop would be coming out this week (OAR, not the current p&s), but that didn't materialize, so a rest for my wallet.

As Troy said, could you post where you found the 24.99 for Futurama at Target? I couldn't find anything on Target.com and while there are no Targets near me, it would be really helpful to price match at Best Buy.

Nothing this week because the lack of money, but later on in the year I will pick up Futurama season 2 (not in a big hurry since seeing the season a while back).
I need a new signature.

Per my spies, Target's price for Futurama is more likely to be $34.99 or $29.99...I think he typo'ed when he wrote that. *I* am not gonna hold my breath on a price that low! Posted Image

George, Timecop is merely a markdown this week (see bottom of Roundup).

For all the folks welcoming me back: Thank you. My family and I had a great time, but it's great to sleep in my own bed again.

To John B.- Bab 5 is going for $54US at amazon.ca. After adding in shipping, you should be able to have delivered for under $65. It's just a matter of putting up with the incredibly slow Canadian post.
