    I usually try to stay below $1.00 per episode and These were all about 30-50 cents per episode except a few of the rawhide sets and the Flash which was Blu-ray.

    Steve doesn't do things by halves. When he goes to town, he really goes to town! ;)

    Lots of good stuff there, Steve! Good to know you ended up with an official Newhart Show set, after your earlier trouble. Think you'll enjoy those Rawhide episodes as well.

    That's a very sensible selection criterion, if I do say so myself!

    I hope so, I've been watching Rawhide on MeTV but there's nothing like watching the restored uncut episodes on DVD.

    It kind of puts it in perspective. Fifty cents is hardly anything compared to being able to watch a show when I want as many times as I want without having to worry about some network or streaming service taking it away. My wife and I sat down Wednesday and watched an episode of Bewitched from the Sony release and thoroughly enjoyed it. I think that set was thirteen cents per episode.

    I do the same. I'll go up to ~$1.50 for certain hour length programs but that's rare. I'll admit to paying more for a few highly desired series but those are more rarefied than my normal $1.50 max.

    Oh, just surprised that you're getting a version of Lost in Space that is not in its original aspect ratio, that's all. Hope you enjoy it, anyway!

    $50 at Wallys! They had 2, one had the cover torn up and mine looked perfect. Wally's shelves tear stuff up. I've gotten so many great deals on TV stuff from Wallys lately... I think I saw All in the Family for $60. I'm going to grab one when I go back. I have the whole show but 1 disc died from rot. Just to be safe... the whole thing again! And I'm waiting and hoping they get Maude.

    We just bought seasons one through five of Scrubs for $20 at a second hand store. New condition. I hope I like it.

    It's the UK release. And the price is ~$30 higher than if purchased from Amazon UK directly (it's ~$61 shipped to the US using their currency converter). Other than that... no... except for the page style holders I detest as much as digipak holders.

    The users reviews on it are all over the place. One review said the dvd version has a misprint "also available on blue ray" or something similar (I couldn't find that review again just now) A seller on ebay has it listed as region B. Amazon says all region and PAL. I think blurays, dvds and knockoffs are getting all mixed together on this. :(

    Bob, I think $61 is for the DVD? The blu ray is a bit higher. They raised it on amazon.com as well from what it was yesterday. I'll prob wait on this.

    I already have the series on Blu-Ray OAR. I'm buying the widescreen DVD solely out of curiosity.
