...probably just the first couple of episodes. I wouldn't expect any more than that such as extras, commentary, etc. Although, maybe a trailer or two to advertise the other "starter sets".

It's an interesting idea, these "starter" sets. The TVONDVD guys put up a great post on this (as usual Posted Image )

Since I'm already going to get the 1st season set I won't get the "starter" set but Gord and Dave's take on it will undoubtly help those that are out there considering getting the season pack make their decisions.

TVshowsonDVD says this about the starter set:

The sets carry a suggested retail price of $9.99, though they're already being marked down by online retailers like DVDPlanet (the discs are just $6.99 there). Fox is also offering a coupon for $10 off the set, should you choose to purchase it after watching the "Starter Set."


Anyone know how these coupons will work? I usually order from Amazon.com, and I don't know if they would take a coupon.

Also, is the coupon supposed to come inside the starter set? Gilmore Girls was supposed to have a similar deal (buy the pilot on a 'starter' disc, and get a coupon for the boxed set), but the Gilmore Girls starter disc didn't come with the coupon information.

Christi, they're usually rebates. They companies do this because most people don't send away for the rebates, but it'll influence them at the checkout counter. I'm guilty of not sending away many, many rebates.

Anyway, you should be able to redeem them if you purchase from Amazon.com.
