  1. Hey RoundUppers!

    Another week of interesting titles. Hope you find something you like!

    I'll be picking up seasons 5 & 6 of Last Man Standing…but not until they drop in price (or I finish the first four seasons…which I just recently picked up. I'm really enjoying them. But I have yet to finish season 1!)

    Not to discourage you too much, because your mileage may vary…

    …but I really enjoyed the first season of "Last Man Standing", too. However, after the first season, they retooled the show, recasting the oldest daughter and aging her, her son, and her baby daddy up by a few years — basically turning the latter into a less intelligent version of Meathead from "All in the Family". At that point it became more of a straight sitcom, without the interesting and surprising touches that I appreciated in the first season.

  3. Thanks for the prices, Mike. Nothing for me this week. That’s good, as I got in on the Kino Lorber sale, as well as a Deep Discount DVD sale for some Warner Archive titles. Between those two orders, I spent around a hundred bucks.

  4. Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike! :thumbsup:

    I already received The Complete Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly (Hal Roach) Comedy Collection from ClassicFlix.

    I will be adding Peyton Place: Part Four and Curse of the Cat People eventually as well. Spent quite a bit on the Kino and Twilight Time sales and I now need to save up for the Barnes & Noble Criterion sale next month.

  6. I had the MI movies on preorder, but cancelled them. They need to come way down for me for me to official bite.

    A couple new things popped up on the Cartwheel app today. Daddy Home's 2 (all formats) 20% off, Saving Private Ryan (UHD only) 25%, there's more so check it out.

    Target is also showing a price reduction on Black Panther UHD down to $23.99. Amazon has matched last I checked.

    Thanks Mike…I may bite on something from the TT sale too…I'm hemming and hawing right now.

  7. So yesterday was fun. I stopped into BB to price match Black Panther 4k with either Target or Amazon. I figure the price match to $23.99 + $15 in BB rewards got me to a price I was happy with.

    Went to check out and the cashier found B/N had Black Panther for $18.67…so the original $29.99 price was knocked down to $18.67. Then the $15 in certs…so final price, with tax was $4.04. Completely worth the five minutes it took to find the new price match and get manager approval.

    I was very happy. It reminds me of the "old" days at BB.

    Mike, since you just recently picked these up, I'm curious did you receive DVD-R or pressed discs from Amazon? When I purchased these roughly 3 years ago, I got pressed for seasons 1 & 2 and DVD-R for 3 & 4.

    I have yet to tire of watching this show no matter how many times I've seen a particular episode.

  9. Hey Jason!

    I'm no expect in discerning if a disc is pressed or mod…but it sure as heck seems as if all four seasons of discs look the same (pressed) to me.

    The labeling is identical. And here's proof:

    [​IMG]

    Do the labels on your discs for seasons 3 & 4 look different than seasons 1 & 2?

    And I just saw an ad on TV about LMS moving to Fox this fall!

  10. Hey Mike, thanks for the reply & pics of the LMS discs. Sorry it took a bit to get back to you with my reply, but am moving things around the house and had to rearrange some things to access where I have my TV on dvd stored. Anyway, looking at your pics, I'm guessing you did receive all pressed discs. My discs for seasons 3 & 4 do have 1 key difference on their label, which is a UPC label printed at the bottom. The cases they came in also do not have a flipper tray; instead disc 1 is on one side of the case with disc 2 & 3 on the other side overlapping each other.

    One other key way to tell the difference is by looking at the UPC code on the back of the case. The DVD-R version will have "Manufactured by Amazon in Lexington, KY" printed directly over the UPC code. The pressed version just has a normal UPC code. Can't see that from your pics, of course, but based on the other differences, it does appear your's are all pressed, so congrats!

    May have to give it another purchasing whirl as I would prefer to have all pressed, if possible. Did you get all 4 seasons direct from Amazon when you made your purchase, or did you get some from a 3rd party seller?

    Jason: All four seasons came from a 3rd party vendor (but filled by Amazon) in one fell swoop. They are selling a bundle of all four seasons for $45. That's what I bought.

    Personally, I'd figure you're probably all right with the DVD-Rs (maybe only replace them if they give you a problem?)…but I'm no expert.

  12. BEWARE…THIS IS A BUMP OF AN OLD ROUND-UP. 😀

    Hey, Jason!

    Here's an update on this issue with Last Man Standing discs.

    When I bought Seasons 1-4, you asked about the discs I got and I posted this picture showing that they were pressed discs:

    [​IMG]

    Well, I just cracked open seasons 5 & 6 so Peg and I can finish our binge watching of the series in anticipation of the New season on Fox.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So it looks like this time I got I got DVD-Rs for seasons 5 & 6.

    I got the pressed discs of Seasons 1-4 from a third party vendor via Amazon. Seasons 5 & 6 came from Amazon directly. Go figure.

    Did you ever pick up 5 & 6?

    It seems odd to me that they would issue DVD-Rs early in the release's history and then switch-over to pressed discs. It seems like the opposite is usually what happens. Isn't it?

    I just checked on that and just as you described, that text IS just above the UPC code on the back of each of these two new LMS cases.

    Hey Mike,

    Thanks for the update on what type of discs you received for the new seasons. I haven't picked 5 & 6 up myself as of yet although I do plan to do so eventually. I never seem to get tired of watching repeats of this show. I am glad Fox gave the show a reprieve and is bringing it back this coming season; hopefully, when it's decided to end the show this next time around, they are given enough notice to provide it with a proper send-off.

    I agree about the oddity surrounding the pressed discs for this show, but you're right, it is usually the other way around with pressed 1st and then DVD-Rs later.
