The Disclaimer
Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price.

"LP" in the RoundUp table means a store’s Sunday flyer says "Low Price". That means I could not locate a definite 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, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp. The titles included are those that I am interested in...as well as those which I consider will be of interest to a majority of consumers (and sometimes I’ll miss one!). I don't get paid for this, and I don't have the time to list every DVD. So, 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!

Note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the RoundUp. They set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is no way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. And, as always, Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

The Target Family Guy disc has a preview of Seth MacFarlane's upcoming The Winner, and... haven't seen any further details than that on it. There is also a Wal-Mart bonus disc (packaged with 4 OR previous volumes- look for stickers)... I understand it's just 20 minutes of a Comic-Con panel.

Thanks for the Round-up.

Perry Mason Vol 2 and Classic Comedy Teams already on their way with Preston Sturges a real possibility if I can find a good price. One can never get too much William Demerest in their home video library.

Wow! Thanks guys!

This will be a big, bad week for me as a lot of TV on DVD I've been waiting for finally arrives...

Alias : Season 5
Boston Legal: Season 2
Seinfeld: Season 7
Star Trek: Animated Series

And... A Fish Called Wanda SE

On Friday, I will pick up Arrested Development: Season 3 at Best Buy.

Also, I would love to get the Alias "Rambaldi" box set simply because it looks so cool, but with everything else coming out over the next couple of weeks, I'll have to settle for the five individual season sets.

Thanks, once again, for all the great work Mike and Patrick. Much appreciated! Big week for me: Boston Legal #2 Seinfeld #7 (and #3 which I missed on the last big discounted sale) Desperate Housewifes #2 (how can you pass it up at this price?) Looney Tunes #2, #3, and #4 Preston Sturges Collection (Highly recommended if you love screwball comedy)

Seinfeld And Perry Mason for me...possibly "Grinch" based on any reviews I see. Looks like possibly waiting on TV sets (rather than purchasing during release week) is becoming a viable option, especially for less important titles...and it gives me time to catch up on all the sets I already own!
