    (CC) after a title = New release in the Criterion Collection.

    Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

    Baseball Double Feature: Kill the Umpire, Safe at Home.

    Dogs O’ War Collection: World War II: Dirty Heroes, War Boy, Desert Commando, Bridge to Hell, War Devils, Heroes Without Glory, Operation: Cross Eagles, Hellcommandoes, Mediterranean in Flames.

    Mario Bava Collection: Volume 1: Black Sunday, Black Sabbath, The Girl Who Knew Too Much, Kill Baby Kill, Knives of the Avenger.

    Reel Baseball: Baseball Films of the Silent Era: The Busher, Heading Home, and 11 film shorts.

    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.

    Thanks, Mike and Patrick!

    At long last... Twin Peaks: Season Two for me!! BTW, what's up with that awful Best Buy price?

    And, I'm really leaning towards the Mario Bava Collection: Vol. 1, but from the reviews I've seen so far, there appears to be little to no improvement over the older Image discs.

    Lastly, if I were in to it (which I'm not), that $89.99 seems like a pretty nice price at Target for the Brady Bunch: Complete Series box set.

    I'm tempted to pick up Charlotte's Web as a blind buy at Target. I read that book about a dozen times as a kid and would love to pass it on to my niece...

    Gotta pick up Arrested Development S1 for $17.99! I originally rented it and bought seasons tow and three, so now the collection is complete!

    KMart's April 1-8's flyer shows the 3 disc TEN COMMANDMENTS ANIVERSARY EDITION and the 2 disc THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST DEFINITIVE EDITION for $9.99 each. (I figure this may be a photo error, but I plan to use it for price-matching anyway.)

    Toys R Us is offering Buy 1 Get One at 50% Off on all DVDs.

    Thanks for the prices, guys.

    This week is just Entourage S3V1 (which I've been watching for the past week thanks to an early shipment from my e-tailer) and BB's Natural Gift Set.

    **And a head's up on the Natural gift set - BB.com has it listed for $19.99, not the $22.99 that is listed in the flyer. So if anyone else is looking into that one, you may want to go the .com route for in-store pickup (assuming they still have that price on the site on Tuesday).

    Does anyone know if "The Natural: Director's Cut" is still coming out on Blu-ray on 4/3? Amazon has it listed but DVDempire took it off it's site. I just checked Netflix & they don't have the Blu-ray listed either.

    Anyone have any info on this?

    Thank you Michael and Patrick for your all your efforts each week to keep us informed of the best sales around. Over the past couple of years, I have saved many dollars due to your diligent work here.

    They don't stay long as I am always here reading about ways to spend them at one of the many online Buy One Get One Free Sales. You'll get no complaints from me.

    However, I was moved to write when I opened the Best Buy circular found in today's Boston Globe. While it listed all that you did, one line appears to have been left out which makes the sale even better.

    $19.99 each after savings
    Save $10-$22 on ALL seasons of these favorite shows (excludes Seinfeld Season 7 and complete series box sets.

    I would humbly suggest that the list copied below should be changed as follows:

    Best Buy on sale DVD items:

    $19.99 each:
    Seinfeld: Season 1 + 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6
    Rescue Me: Season 1 / 2
    Dawson’s Creek: Season 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6
