    Might want to check your Doctor Who picture. Doctor Who First Series starred Billie Piper and Christopher Eccleston. David Tennant took over for him in the subsequent season thats airing currently on the BBC.

    And, oh yeah, nothing for me this week.

    Carlos V beat me to my comment on the unfortunate picture choice on Doctor Who -- that's actually a spoiler for anyone who hasn't seen the last episode of season one!

    That's my lone buy for the week. It's a roll of the dice as to whether I should order from Amazon or buy from BB - when sales tax is taken into consideration, Amazon's actually a buck cheaper, but at BB I'd get RZ points. Decisions, decisions!

    The Doctor was a pretty good Show season 1, maybe if it had a $59.99 MSRP I'd Spring, but I've said no to HBO for charging $99.99 for it's 13 episode series and I have to also say no to the BBC..

    Zero this week. I was very tempted to grab the two disc Collateral from BB yesterday for $9.99, but ultimately decided against it. It's time to start plowing through the stuff I already have.

    Thanks guys!

    I picked up Rescue Me S1/S2 and Seinfeld S5/S6 for $19.99 each at Target. They had plenty at noon. Sweet deal! (esp. on RM) [​IMG]

    Lest anyone take this the way I did:


    It's only those specific seasons on sale, not all seasons inclusive. As such, I just picked up season 1 of In Living Color; I may go back for 5 and fill in the hole when a good price comes along.

    Also noted that BB locally was already sold out of their entire stock on all three seasons of The Pretender and seasons 1 and 2 of Remington Steele. For that matter, I think I grabbed the last copy of ILC season 1. I might have gone ahead and completed the run of The Pretender (I have season 1 already) and picked up season 1 of RS had they been in stock, but unless they have 'em when I stop in for Doctor Who on Tuesday, I probably won't make a special trip.

    Anyway, these on-sale items do appear to be going fast, so get 'em while you can. If you're looking to get rainchecks, most BBs won't give 'em until the last day of the sale, so you're looking at having to make a special trip back just to get a piece of paper to come back yet again. Gas prices being what they are, there might not be enough savings to justify that...

    Missed on the above list: BB has Family Guy Presents Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story and Napoleon Dynamite: Like, The Best Special Edition Ever at $6.99. It's on the cover of this week's circular rather than being listed with the other titles.

    Finally, BB had a list of titles that were an unadvertised special at $5.99 each, including Glory (1 disc), A League of Their Own, Karate Kid (SE), A Few Good Men, Starship Troopers (SE), Just One of the Guys, Jerry Maguire and more than a dozen others that I can't recall right now.

    Worth noting that locally, Target has only been carrying the color versions of these, and not carrying them in the original B&W (Bewitched 3 was the first color season, Jenanie 2 was its first in color). I'm guessing that if you're a purist like me, you can get the B&W versions pricematched elsewhere. I might just do that on Bewitched, myself...
