    The $.99 Hulu deal is still live, but eligibility is definitely selective. My account was a no-go.

    and twilight zone... but I think you're on the right track comparing it with Lucy and Andy. I went ahead and got it.

    I didn’t get the email offer. For a buck a month, I would have signed back up. Oh, well.

    Heh... all the BF deals for 4K UHDs (many coming so close to plain BD counterparts or what I'd normally spend on them) along w/ some cases where even the included BD upgrade should be worthwhile are forcing my hand to buy a big batch this go-around even though I don't have any clear plans to upgrade the hardware so far -- could easily be 2-3 years before I upgrade... when I might move and finally have a dedicated HT room while true 4K projection might finally be reasonably affordable enough.

    Too bad there doesn't seem to be any good, affordable options for downconversion to 1080p/SDR playback though -- not ready to spend the $$$ on a Panny UB820 just for that purpose...

    My Black Friday consisted of fixing the home AC (yes we still need air conditioning in Gulf Coast Texas right now). $677 later we're good. No Black Friday deal from the AC guy. LOL

    From Vermont, where the HIGH temperature on Thanksgiving was 9 degrees, I have to say I'm a bit jealous (of the nice weather, not the bill).

    I just checked the website. I see the $0.99 offer on the main page, but when I try to sign up it switches to $5.99 per month.

    Gotta love some of these discounts at the Shout! BF "sale". I guess if you add them to your cart, you get an additional discount, but I'm not sure of the point of displaying them like this in the first place?

    Awesome! Handmaid's Tale has been on our want-to-watch list for a while. But haven't wanted to sign up for another $10/mo service. But for a buck a month, I'm happy to try it.

    And I violated my rule to not buy movies until I'm more caught up on my backlog, and bought Wreck It Ralph UHD and Deadpool 2 UHD (UHD was within $5 of HD). I want to rewatch Ralph before seeing the sequel. And since I'm spending money, DP2 is kinda cheap and I haven't seen it yet.

    I picked up quite a few films on UHD or streaming that I had specifically been waiting for the prices to drop. I have more than enough new material now to keep me busy through the holidays.

    I also picked up some half price tickets for the Star Line ferry service to Mackinac Island. They have a sale on their website every Black Friday. We usually visit the island a couple of times a year, and already have one booked for June 2019.

    Picked up the Perry movie collection too. $27.

    Walmart had the Hunger Games 4 movie blu for $9.96. Isn't that like $40 less that it normal goes after?

    Now that all of my BF 4K titles are trickling in via mail/UPS/Fedex, I had no idea how many titles I had bought, but since I knew most of the 4K titles tend to stay around $20-$30 for the rest of the year, I figure I'd splurge and get any of them that piqued my interest and were in that $10 range, and maybe a few upwards toward $15 at the higher limit. Heck, I bought Thor Ragnorak for $15 since it's usually $22-$23 normally, and I wasn't planning on buying it otherwise. Same goes with most of the Disney/Marvel Cinematic Universe 4k titles.
