It is my understanding that Naked City is coming to dvd. I checked amazon site and it has no date. I welcome any thoughts or suggestions on naked city.
I'd have kept the Amazon pre-order as WM can always cancel pre-orders saying it was a price mistake. While they've honored such mistakes in the past there's nothing that says they have to do so. It's quite different than going into the store and seeing something mis-priced on the shelf. That one they typically *have* to honor until they take down that mistake (most will still argue if it's a large price difference and in this day of computerized inventory it's even harder still to get them to honor a bad shelf price). As an example: A couple of years ago they had a price mistake on a game controller/game combo. WM let some go through but cancelled *some* of the orders. On others, like mine, they cancelled the *game* portion of the combo but shipped the controller at "normal" price. It took a considerable number of back-and-forth emails to convince them that if they shipped *part* of the combo they were obligated to ship it all at the price listed. In the end I got the combo at the price it had listed but only because they did a partial ship and then cancelled. Had they cancelled *all* of it I'd have not bothered.Mr. Handley said:Thanks for the heads-up on the Wal-Mart price! I had just pre-ordered this on Amazon the other day at $99 (which I thought as a steal), but decided cancel that and go ahead with that Wal-Mart option. Once the pre-order is in, don't they have to honor that price?
Yes, IMHO this is obviously a pricing error. For that reason I edited my original post and bolded the line which essentially says you're taking a chance of cancellation if you order a copy at this price. Some people have speculated what *should* be on that page is the "Best of" set. If that's the case, the page changes to reflect this, and that is what ships, you can always return it to a local store with nothing lost other than time/gas for a return.John Karras said:$25.48 for a 29-disc box set???....I hope that's true but something seems awfully wrong about that giveaway price. They have the list price as being $29.98, when the actual list is $179.98.

Right now Walmart is possibly the best choice as they have a what looks to be a pricing error on their site. The full series is currently pre-selling for $25.48 plux tax with free shipping to your house. Whether or not these pre-orders will go through is anyone's guess but it may be worth a chance. It has a 11/5/13 shipping date.
I'd be very surprised if they did that since the picture shows the complete 29 disk series and the description matches the complete series. If they did they would just have to process all the returns or take even more heat for shipping the wrong product. Especially, since the best of sets are also listed on their website for a cheaper price. It would make more sense, and would be much less work on their part, to just cancel the orders or post an out of stock soon and fill just those that made it through. Its not like those ordering don't know what they are ordering. I'd give it a decent chance of being filled, but would obvious understand if they decided to cancel it.Hollywoodaholic said:I'll be curious to hear what happens with the Wal Mart orders, but don't be surprised if you end up with the Best of set, which that price sounds more likely to represent. I have that set and am enjoying it, even though it's not really so much a Best of as a set that features guest stars who became more famous later. The show has a timeless appeal though because it's so character-oriented, like Route 66, which followed it from the same producer.
I ordered one from Wal-Mart and one from Amazon. If they both come through at that price one will make a nice Christmas gift.BobO'Link said:^There should be no need for that. If a pre-order price drops Amazon will automatically give you the lower price.
^^It looks like they are price matching WM.
