You'r Best "Blind Buy"

What DVD or set do you consider your best blind buy? For me it was randomly picking up "Dog Soldiers" for 6 bucks. One of the ebst buys I've done.

Can't beat Band of Brothers from Target's $5.99 sale.

Firefly

Any of those would be my best blind buys.

I just blind-bought Freaks and Geeks from DVDPlanet during the 20% off sale, but haven't got a chance to watch yet. I'm hoping it will live up to my expectations.

My personal favorite would be The Wire. I bought S1 when it was on sale for $25 at Best Buy. I was so impressed I bought the other two (increasingly more expensive) seasons almost right after.

Other good blind buys:

The Office (UK)
Spaced (though I saw Shaun of the Dead first, so it probably wasn't completely blind)

Another good choice. Undeclared was a great blind buy for me too.

Undeclared for me.
I did like F&G, but I liked Undeclared more.
