Also noted, "Thriller: Complete Season One" for $15.95:

This is a 70s-era British show from Brian Clemens, creator of Danger Man and The Avengers. Can anyone recommend it? Online pricing ranges between $50-$80 for this set. Thanks for the original post.

The links you guys are posting include some sort of session information. I can see billing addresses and shopping carts that aren't mine.

Delete everything in the URLs between "filereader?" and "+EN"

When I click on the links I can't access my address at all.

What city were you guys seeing?

I can't believe you can't check online to see the status of an order, or if it was even placed. Would be helpful.

I happened to catch the session issue, and logged out, then logged back in, but I haven't received any confirmation of my order yet (but my card was authorized...ehhh). Hopefully it will work out.

Some great stuff rich-y. Thanks

Oh, also I ordered:

GUYS AND DOLLS, DELUXE EDITION
Item #7090471
$7.95

This is the cheapest I've seen it (Amazon is $21.99 right now, DeepDiscount is $18.xx I think). If you order it with the other stuff, the shipping is moot.

I ordered:

Thunderbirds Mega-Set
The Complete Hammer House of Horror
Guys And Dolls: Deluxe Edition

$67.55 shipped. :up:

That's a pretty good price, but doesn't compare to the deal at Big Lots ($3).

It's very much a Hitchcock-style suspense series. I've seen the first three, and very good they are too. These ran in a 75-minute slot with commercials in the UK so the run time per episode is around 65 minutes.

However, it looks like there's little or no likelihood of the remaining episodes seeing the light of day in the USA, so the way to go for these is the massive 16-disc R2 set, which is currently selling for 40.97 at Amazon UK. Take 15% off that price and add around $6 for shipping and it's a veritable bargain IMHO at around $75.

Worthy of note are the two Romance Collection Megasets, selling for $39.95 each. Some great literary adaptations in these, including Tom Jones, The Flame Trees of Thika, Ivanhoe, and the widescreen version of the mid '90s Pride and Prejudice, which retails for $40 on its own anyway.

Kind of a crazy thing since I'm not from San Fran (or California for that matter).

I was hoping that if my address did show up that someone would order a gift package of DVDs for me. Ha! :)

Yeah, it would be great. But I'm sure you'll receive a confirmation soon.

Good thing about this company is that they've never left me in the lurch. Every order I placed with them was fulfilled flawlessly.

As a matter of fact, I check their website EVERY time I get ready to order a book - just in case they have it for cheap!

Does anyone have this: HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN: The Fairy Tales.

Includes 30 newly animated fairy tales. Welcome to a world of emperors, little mermaids, tinderboxes and flying trunks, along with ugly ducklings and wicked stepmothers. All ages. Nearly twelve hours on 9 DVDs. Published by Starlight Home Entertain.

It's 19.95 and a lot cheaper than anywhere else. I am having a hard time finding reviews of it though.

IMO, if you have kids, how can you go wrong for $20.00 though.

The Saint Mega-Set - $79.95

The Complete Hammer House of Horror - $19.95
.

Saint can be found on eBay for a little cheaper (got mind for 29.99)
The Complete Hammer House of Horror is also 19.95 at oldies.com


Thunderbirds sounds pretty good though (remember paying 21.99 for TWO of the discs in the day!)

Not much in reviews from Amazon but new copies starting at $7 -- it would seem that if you can get it for $7, you would definitely "go wrong" by picking it up for $20.

Suspect the T-birds set is being blown out because of the recent re-release of the set as the "40th Anniversary" remaster. I gather the difference between the two sets is not that dramatic in terms of quality.

Probably that and the fact that the new packaging saves a ton of room on the stores shelves.

Today I was at Best Buy and noticed that A&E repackaged "Space 1999" to fit in the space of about 3 regular jewel cases. It used to be nearly as big as the Thunderbirds mega-set (about a foot long), but now features DVDs packed 2 discs per slim case. It used about 6 or 7 slim cases total.

The magazine Video Business News said that retailers have really started to complain about the size of these mega-sets and the studios are trying to keep them happy.

A&E has also recently re-packaged the first Romance Collection, so the second one will no doubt have its RRP halved soon too.

Oldies also has Edward & Mrs. Simpson for $14.95. Superb mini-series, though Costco packages it as an extra in one of the Romance Collections; don't think it's included from any other retailer.

Just an FYI, the Thunderbirds Megaset has shipped to me from Hamilton. Some of you ordered this and you probably received an OOS email. However, it is in stock now. If you haven't ordered but want this set, get it now. I doubt it will last.

They have the Cell Block H 1st collection for 7.95 and the cheapest I can find it is on deepdiscount for 33.19. They also have the 2nd collection for 14.95 which deepdiscount has for 30.36.

I might just order those by the end of the day.

Thanks!

Don't miss out on History Channel's Century of Warfare at $39.95 ($139.95 MSRP). Excellent collection and a fabulous price.

Couldn't resist picking up "The Complete Hammer House of Horror". And just literally got shipping confirmation from yesterday's order.

An FYI, on the A&E Romance Collections. Apparently, there were editions of these which contained an extra title with them. I noticed these editions were listed on Daedalus Books website for $60, but I figure the extra title in each addition, is more than likely under $20 from places like Amazon, so this is still a good deal. I bought both romance collections, btw. Got the second one a few days ago and it will certainly take up some space.

Most, if not all, of these titles are available at:

http://www.edwardrhamilton.com/

You can't order online or use a credit card. You have to snail mail the order, but you only have to pay $3.50 for shipping. There's no per item charge, as there is at hamiltonbook. The choice is yours.

These are the same companies. One is for internet orders and one is for orders to be placed through USPS mail. They used to have a link on the edwardrhamilton site that said something like, "Want to pay by credit card?" that linked to hamiltonbook.

You might want to check Amazon Marketplace for some of these ... I picked up Century of War SS for $30+ shipped ... The Saint Megaset can be bought SS for less than $40 shipped ... but after reading this Amazon contributor review, I decided to pass ... I gotta draw the line somewhere :)

This A&E megaset contains ONLY the later color episodes and in my opinion the weakest episodes in the series as a whole. These color shows were original tales written for television and not based on the stories of Saint creator Leslie Charteris. These color episodes come off lighter and more tongue-in-cheek. This could be because ITC was pandering to the US in order to sell the series to an American television network or it could be the simple evolution of a series entering its fifth year of production. On the other hand, it could be that the writers devising the color stories didn't know Simon Templar the way Charteris did. ...

I got my Thunderbirds set around July 18.

(sigh) Previously I had bought a couple of the 2-pack sets via Hamilton Books and I only needed one more to complete the full set. I found the last 2-pack needed online for $30 and then this offer came along for the megaset and roughly the same price. Seemed like a no-brainer to pull the trigger and get the megaset. :D

I'm in a similar spot. I have "Secret Agent" sets 1-5 and to complete the series need only set six ...which never goes on sale.

There are currently 2 volumes of the The Saint The Early Years (B&W).
Does anyone know how many B&W episodes are unreleased on DVD ?

Update. I did my own research. Vol 1 is the complete 12 episode series 1.
Vol 2 is the 1st 16 of 27 episodes of series 2. So they still need to release the rest of series 2, 23 episodes of series 3, and 9 episodes of the short series 4.

The color mega set are the 47 color episodes that made up series 5 and 6.

Its been several years since there has been a new release so this maybe one of the many incomplete series.

There are 71 B&W episodes of The Saint. Right now the only way to get them is to go PAL, from either the UK, where they're in a huge 18-disc set, or from Australia, where they're in three sets of six discs each. The Aussie ones are region-free.

Thank you for the information.

Are you sure the Aussie ones are region free ? Per an Amazon user review of Vo1 2 of the early years:

"I bought the entire set from Australia, not knowing they were not "region free" as stated. Been watching them on my PC. Fabulous! What can one say about Roger Moore that hasn't been said. Can't wait to finally watch them on my TV!!"

I own several ITC series from Umbrella Entertainment, and all the packaging have the region globe with the word "ALL" in it. Perhaps the Amazon reviewer was using a player that can't handle or convert PAL?

HamiltonBook apparently has just about their entire inventory of 800+ titles gone from their site. Not sure what's up. :(

A few new titles were added, however. Only 45 titles are available at the moment.

Fantastic !
As soon as I read this message, went right to page and got it. Been looking for it to go down to a reasonable amount. Watched it as a kid (prime time) and enjoyed it. Roger Moore perfect for the part.
Now looking for a good price for MacGuyver Complete Set.
If anyone had a better amount than $145, let me know.

Thanks again Deckel !!!

P.S. I hope it's not one of those "oops we made a mistake and need to credit your account". Happened to me last year on another DVD title.
