    Well, you can tell by looking at this week's grids that the quantity of releases is starting to pick up.

    'Tis the season as it'll be getting busy between now and Black Friday.

    Safe shopping!

    And thanks, in advance, for any likes to this week's OP. Love being here together with you folks. :thumbsup:

    I'll pick up American Crime Story: The People Vs. O.J. Simpson, South Park and Supernatural at some point.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    I was surprised you didn't list Limitless S1 (complete series) in the DVD section.

    Regardless of its absence in the grid, I'll be picking it up


    Currently $39.99 at Amazon

    Thanks once again for the round up ...

    I hope the bluray named "The Katate Kid: Part III" is a mis-key and not another one of "those" kind of movies you had to wear an overcoat and dark glasses to see in the theater (so I hear) ;)

    Thank you for your work, Mike!

    Love & Friendship, Genius, The Meddler and The People v. O.J. Simpson are all good. But the only one I need to own this week is The Iron Giant, and all I have to say about that is that it is about damn time. I would normally be in for the deluxe version with swag for a title that important, but since Amazon isn't discounting from the $74.99 SRP, I'm sticking with the regular one, which feels like a steal at $9.99.

    Thanks as always, Mike!

    I think there's a typo in the Target section of the specials; it says Best Buy again instead of Target.

    Thanks for the ROundUp. Really appreciate your going back and picking up the link to CSI: Cyber which I posted several hours after the RoundUp was posted.

    I do have The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story here ready to tackle when I finish one more project tomorrow, and there are several other films in this week's list on my agenda to review though the review copies haven't yet arrived.

    David: Not sure if I dropped the ball, or it wasn't in my list. Regardless, THANKS!! And, HERE'S THE LINK to Limitless: Season 1 on Amazon!

    I'd have included the entry in the grid in the article, but I haven't yet figured out how to do that <embarrassed> :mellow:

    Fixed! THANKS, Adam!

    And...I see Matt has posted a review of CSI-Cyber: Season 2. I have added a link in the original article. THAT I know how to do. :D

    If you haven't seen it yet, it's pretty darn good.

    Thanks, Mike!

    At my age, I'd rather be subtracting the years rather than adding more, but what can you do?

    Six this week for me:
    • A Boy Named Charlie Brown
    • The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother
    • Daddy Long Legs
    • Haunted Honeymoon
    • The Iron Giant
    • Snoopy Come Home
    Hmm, that's odd. The two Gene Wilder films are slated to get to me on Thursday rather than Tuesday.
    What's up with that, Amazon?

    I was just thinking about this the other day. . .first, birthdays are great because you're getting parties and gifts. Then, for a while, they suck because they remind you you're getting older. Then, after that, they're great again because you're still having 'em!

    Personally, my mood goes back and forth. :)

    I guess Amazon is pretty confident it has loyal customers that don't price match. South Park is $18 cheaper and was also a store exclusive till now. I've noticed much higher prices for pre-orders at Amazon compared to other stores and then on release day they drop the prices to match other stores.

    Not sure about other genres but I see it a lot with horror on Arrow and Scream Factory type releases. Barnes and Noble is hit or miss on decent pre-order prices. For the ones they're cheaper on, a lot of the time it's a better deal to pre-order than wait for the release and then use a 20% coupon.

    My Walmart has Now You See Me 2 (Blu-ray 4K) for $24.96.

    I almost bought it, but decided to save the $5 and just got the regular blu for $19.96.
