(DEAD) Nowhere Man: The Complete Series $29.00 (42% off MSRP) at DVD Empire

http://www.dvdempire.com/Exec/v4_ite...item_id=747093

This appears to be a misprice as they have the list price at $49.99 and everyone else has $69.99.

I ordered it. We'll see if they honor it.

Does this have anything at all to do with John Lennon?

Nope. It was a 1 season show from the mid 90s. Kind of Twilight Zone type thing where a man's life comletely changes and he's trying to figure out why. On the plus side, even though it is only one season, some of the central questions are answered in the 1st season, unfortunately it just leads to more questions that aren't answered http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112104/

I'll give it a shot. Excellent show. Tried to capitalize on X-Files' early success but couldn't find an audience. Bruce Greenwood is excellent in it.

Definite misprice though as this is a 9 disc set.

Actually that's new. When the "it's dead" was first posted it was at $49.99.

Interesting. Maybe it wasn't selling at the higher price?

Even with a list price of $49.99, $29.00 is a very good price. I'm not so sure anyone will beat that including DVD Empire which now has it at $31.61.

Just means it's more likely we'll actually get it at the $29 price

I'm sure Amazon and DDD will have similarly lower prices once they take into account the new SRP. This is great news since the original SRP was pretty high!

ps. - this thread ought to be renamed to something about how the SRP price has been lowered, since this is not just a pricing mistake/sale at dvdempire.

I loved this show, but wish they could have ended it a bit better ... too bad it was cancelled.

Missed out on this the first time around, I think I'll wait and see what other retailers mark it at now that the list price is lower. Amazon has updated the MSRP but not their price (it's available for a whopping 2% discount right now )

glad the price dropped. Thanks for the coupon Brett. Ordered.

If it is lower at other sites, I can always cancel later, it doesn't come out until late Dec. anyway. Plenty of time to compare.

This is an awesome show. Anyone on the borderline, get this. It's very intriguing. Or at least it seemed to be when I was in HS.

I was thinking the same thing when I hit the submit order button. Just wondering if it will hold up as well next to newer serials like Lost & 24.

I never made it through to the end so I at least have that to look forward to.
