Re: The Unit S1-4, Stargate Atlantis S1-5 $10 ea @ Bestbuy.com

Amazon seems to have dropped prices for some of these, perhaps in response. S1 Unit is now $13.49 and I paid $17 a few days ago & thought that was a good deal. Of course they don't do post-order price matching. S3 is $10.99 but the other seasons aren't as deep.

Actually, skimming through Best Buy's site it looks like a lot of DVDs match Amazon's lightning deals - Smallville, Entourage, It's Always Sunny & other show seasons at $9.99 for instance.

Good deal. I've seen Atlantis S1-3 and liked them but I haven't seen the last 2. I wasn't sure about the cast changes coming about, but the reviews are still good, as well as the price.

I've never seen the Unit, but always wondered about it and it gets good reviews. Again at $10 a season how can one pass it up.

If your order hasn't shipped yet or is in transit, they will. If you refuse the package, it costs them money to have it shipped back. For items that have been received, it's a YMMV situation. It's easier to get it approved if you can show proof of the lower price and since it only takes an email or phone call and depending on the amount, it's worth the effort.

Did Atlantis end well or was it a surprise cancellation? I'm not sure I wanna invest in 5 seasons for a cliffhanger.

Atlantis didn't end with a cliffhanger, but they didn't tie up all the plots either. It basically ended with a new beginning. Best I can do without spoilers.

$10 for each season is a damn good deal, especially since only 2 episodes made it to blu ray......and no more blu planned for SGA!

I was in the same boat. I liked what I saw of it through season 3, but then got away from it for a while. Then I heard about some shifting in the cast and that they were cancelling it after season 5 to start a new series.

I did some checking yesterday, while trying to avoid actually knowing the conclusion, to determine whenether it would be worth purchasing. What I read was that season 5 was not quite up to the quality of the previous seasons, but that they did give it an ending. So i bit on the price.

I highly recommend The Unit. If you like David Mamet, or Mamet speak you will be in for a real treat! Every episode is equal parts drama and action, but alot of people hated the wives story lines....I didn't. Not much of a conclusion to the series though!

Season 4 is on blu ray and it looks fantastic.

FYI the plot lines will hopefully be tied up next summer when the direct to dvd movie releases Stargate: Extinction.

If you're talking about The Ark of Truth and Continuum, those were SG-1 stories. I think there is only one movie that continues the Atlantis storyline - Stargate: Extinction. Last I read, the project was on hold. It's supposed to pick up where the last episode ended.

The 2 episodes I was talking about are on the SGA Fan's Choice blu ray. The first episode and last.......Rising, and Enemy at the Gate were "extended" (by 3 minutes at best).

SGA Extinction, from what I've read, is stand alone and not meant to continue the plot lines from the show. If it comes out at all.

At least we will get an SGA crossover on SGU. I don't really care for SGU though. Sadly, that one episode may force me to buy SGU on blu just because of McKay. Fuck. I miss SGA!!!!

Does anyone have a sense for how long BB keeps their titles at such discount levels? Then again, I get taxed whether BB or Amazon and amazon is still pricing over $22 ea.

Thanks.

Re: The Unit S1-4, Stargate Atlantis S1-5 $10 ea @ Bestbuy.com

This question is for the Atlantis sets does anyone know if this deal is for the repackaged versions released not to long ago? or is this for the older style packaging?

The BB website is showing the older packagings, though that may not necessarily reflect what You'd get. I'd consider them if it were the new ones - just to save some shelf space. Actually - no - I probably wouldn't double dip unless they got a Blu release (and I'm not holding my breath). Galls me because that whole series was done in hi-def too.

Re: The Unit S1-4, Stargate Atlantis S1-5 $10 ea @ Bestbuy.com

I see that the foxconnect website has all SG-1 and Atlantis seasons for $12 for their Black Friday sale and it outright states you are getting the new packaging. Though the thing with foxconnect is that the sets cost a few dollars more and you only get free shipping when you meet $50 so it's good if you want half of SG-1 or all of Atlantis. I also see amazon has SG-1 for $9.99 and they display the new packaging. Not sure if this stuff is posted elsewhere or if it is it might not mention Stargate is included in the deals.

Thanks OP. Always meant to watch "The Unit"; used a $20 RZ coupon so I got the whole series for twenty bucks.

Received a Stargate Atlantis season in the mail today and it is the new packaging (at least the one I got, can't say if they all will be).

Actually, Stargate: Extinction{along with the third SG-1 movie} is on hold for now.
