Re: the Family Guy LEs, from what I have read at various sites, each LE features a T-shirt and a bonus DVD containing a trailer for the new FG season, the pilot for American Dad, and some "behind-the-scenes" stuff at FG. Not exactly enough to make me re-buy the series. According to BB's site, the shirts are:

Volume 1 — Brian Griffin, the family dog
Volume 2 — Stewie Griffin, the baby

Also, BB is advertising a BB-exclusive bonus disc with the sets. According to their site:
"The disc contains the "Best of Stewie," trailers, teasers and the pilot for American Dad."
Seems similar to the disc included with the sets at all stores. Not much exclusivity to it, from what I can tell.

Here's the link to BB's info of everything, including images of the shirts:
http://www.bestbuy.c.....at59400050010

Again, doesn't seem like enough for people who have the original releases to double dip, but if you haven't bought the series yet it's probably a good deal.

Mike, cc.com doesn't charge sales tax to NY residents? I could have sworn they did the last time I ordered from them.

Thanks Scott! I appreciate your feedback. Thats kind of what I figured too, the BB disc seems awfully similar to the other ones. I haven't bought any of the Family Guy sets yet, so it's about time for me to pick them up.

cc.com now has Lemony CE back at 29.99 so amazon is the best price if you add something else for free shipping.

I wonder what's on the CC bonus disc, the CE extra disc didn't seem to interesting from what amazon lists.

Scott: Don't know. I've never ordered from them. Wouldn't be surprised since they have a strong in-state NY presence.

And, I still don't know since I'll be stopping by my local Circuit City Tuesday...hoping they don't sell out of copies of Survivor/Outback before I get there.

Boy, I'm still burning about that. Even with the sales tax...there would have been no shipping and I would have been ahead another $3.24!

Thanks for the Roundup Mike. I haven't been checking it lately as I haven't bought anything but WW Season 4 in about 3 months I think.

Blade Trinity for me and thats it.

Well, I just purchased the New version of Family Guy Vol.2 at Target to save $5 over the BB price.
I originally couldn't decide if I wanted the Best Buy Exclusive disc or the disc that came with Targets set.(Couldn't tell if there was a difference).
Well, to answer the question if there is a difference, there does seem to be. Best Buy advertises a "Best of Stewie" with commentary. This is NOT on the Target disc. So Best Buy does have an exclusive disc after all. If you want this featurette then get the BB disc.

The Wal-Mart near me had the Family Guy LEs with T-shirt and bonus DVD. Probably the same as Target's version. Unfortunately, I forgot to write down the price of the sets. Sorry. (I want to say they were in the $31.xx/$32.xx range.)

In the meantime, here are some of the prices on new releases which I saw tonight at my local Wal-Mart (East Greenbush, NY):

Survivor: Outback $33.24
Assassination of Richard Nixon $16.99
ER - Season 3: $28.49
Crank Yankers - Season 2: $17.09
Lemony Snickett...: $15.87
Lemony Snicket...(w/ an on-pack book): $19.82
Blade - Trinity: $15.87
Blade (3 pack): $49.96
Darkness: $18.94


This Wal-Mart had both the rated AND NR versions of Darkness.

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

2 Questions for those who purchased the newly released Family Guy sets:

1) Are the sets themselves different in some way compared to the Season 1/2 and Season 3 box sets that came out in the past couple years?

2)So what is on the Target bonus disc?

And another minor question:

what does LE stand for?

Limited edition

I got the Blade trilogy for $34.99 PM to frys. Is there any reason to also get the R rated Blade Trinity? or is every thing duplicated on the unrated version?

Thanks, Randy B A

These new sets are limited? are they different that the old sets?

I should have guessed "Limied Edition"

No. The dvd's themselves are the same as before. The only "limted" thing is the t-shirt and bonus disc.

Some DVD prices seen during a quick tour of my local BJs Wholesale Club tonight (Albany, NY):

Lemony Snicket... $17.99
Lemony Snicket...CE $24.99
Blade: Trinity $18.99
Darkness PG-13/NR $17.99
House of Flying Dagger $18.49
Love Song for Bobby Long $18.99
Spanglish $17.99
ER: Season 3 $29.99
Waltons: Season 2 $27.99
Hotel Rwanda $17.79
Raging Bull SE $18.99


Again, no signs that the week's "big" releases (such as Lemony Snicket or Blade: Trinity) were subject to any further reduction at the register.

Also, my BJs looked like it has been doing a thinning out of its DVD selection. A much smaller amount of titles with many empty slots in its usual racks. Maybe a change is in the works.

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!
