Best Buy.com AND Best Buy B&M are running a $19.99 TV-on-DVD sale this week. <a href="http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id=pcmcat143300050003&type=category">Online link here.</a>

I put Gilmore Girls S7 and Veronica Mars S3 in the title becase I think those are the best values and probably the ones people will be looking for the most. But there are some other good titles and price points available also:

<u>$19.99</u>
Entourage S1-3.2
Gilmore Girls S1-7
One Tree Hill S1-3
Veronica Mars S2-3

<u>$16.99</u>
The O.C. S1-4
Friends S1-10
Veronica Mars S1

I was pleasantly surprised to see this sale! Expected to wait a lot longer for both Gilmore and Veronica to drop to this price point. Picked up both.

Thanks for the heads up on Gilmore Girls S7. I was at BB today browsing the TV section and noticed Veronica Mars S3 was $19.99, so I purchased a copy.

I noticed that Amazon.com is pricematching GG S7, so I'll purchase it there (Prime Member and no tax). However, I wouldn't have thought to check w/o your post.

Thanks again!

You've clearly never watched Veronica Mars. It's clever, smart, and witty as hell-- not a "show for chicks". Plus, Kristen Bell is smokin' hot.

They're just great shows.

I completed my VM collection. Too bad I had everything else that I wanted, great price.

What makes these chick shows? Veronica Mars crosses both lines ;). Check it out....it's a great show.

Friends, Veronica Mars, Entourage, and Gilmore Girls are not ONLY for chicks. They're just great shows.

<i>technically</i>, they do list the sale as a "TV DVDs for her" Valentine's Day sale. kinda bothers me that they put these shows in a pigeon-hole, as if only "chicks" would enjoy good acting, smart writing, etc. but that's fine. got VM and GG for $10 each after my RZ certificates, they can call the sale whatever they want :)

but if you've avoided veronica mars <i>because</i> you think it's a girl's show, you're definitely missing out. i HIGHLY recommend the series to ANYONE and EVERYONE. one of the best first seasons of any television show. definitely worth making a part of your collection even by itself.

dman said it best: they're just great shows.

If you like the genre its really good. I'd say its better than seasons 2-4 of "THE O.C.," but as "the Dawson's Creek replacement show" it sometimes matches said show, but not normally in quality...

We need them to lower VM S3 to $19.99 people. I just e-mailed them.

I just started Veronica Mars a couple weeks ago and am about a dozen episodes in. Definitely not a chick show. Some of the stories are a stretch and the acting at times is a little suspect(watching Kristen Bell attempt emotion is cringe-worthy), but it's still very entertaining.

Granted I'm only halfway through the first season, but the best way I would describe it is imagine if Chloe on Smallville got her own spin-off.

I wish they'd lower VM S3 on Amazon. If not, I'll make a trip to BB tomorrow. Need to complete that collection. Such a shame that the show had to end.

And it's totally not just for chicks.

Im trying to figure out how Entourage gets called a chick show. Its definitely a guy show.

Anyhow, yes, will be completing my Veronica Mars collection finally!

Keep checking back. Amazon sometimes doesn't match BB's price until the end of the week.

Okay, guys! Veronica Mars S3 is now $19.99 on Amazon.com. :) I'm all over it!

I was skeptical, but it's a truly great series. It also has a really high replay value. I can't wait to watch S3 again. It was a bit uneven at times, but by the end, I was so disappointed that it was over. So much more could have been done. I think you'll be pleased. :)

I seem to be the one of the few people, I guess, who thought S3 was just as good as the other two seasons. Maybe it's because I can relate more to college than high school at this point in time, but it just seemed to be a much funner show (which made up for some of the weakenesses, hence just as good).

Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 1 is $14.99 and Seasons 2-5 are $17.99. Amazon is doing the same deal.

No, I really enjoyed the third season, though it is a lot different than the previous two. I think it'll be really fun to watch a second time without all the weekly gaps. :)

Wow. I think this is probably the first time I've ever seen someone criticize Kristen Bell's acting, especially when talking about S1 of Veronica Mars. lol

Anyway, I'd also definitely recommend purchasing VM. It's really a brilliant show. If you're looking for a teen drama, I'd go for Seasons 2 and 4 of The O.C. over anything from One Tree Hill. OTH's alright, but not as good.

You're REALLY missing out if you're passing up on a fantastic show like Veronica Mars, for a really good deal, because you (incorrectly) think that it's a "show just for chicks".

Cool. I can now complete my blind buy of the entire series! Hope it doesn't end up sucking.

Don't worry. The show was excellent, and even the weak season (3, which honestly works much better when watching it in blocks on DVD rather than weekly) is better than the majority of shows on television.

The payoff of the season-long arc in the season finale is breathtaking. One of the best ever.

Gilmore Girls S7 is nowhere to be found at any Best Buy in my area. So I went with amazon and also picked up Veronica Mars S3 so I got both for $39.98 shipped. :)

Thanks guys for the heads up!

I'd buy them on general principles but since HBO isn't even giving us a freaking finale, I'll wait until Deadwood goes for $20 per season. It's nothing against the show but HBO isn't getting most of my cash for that reason alone. ;)

It was out at most of the stores in my area. Luckily the one closest to me had it in stock, so I got in-store pick-up for both GG7 and VM3 and I'll be picking them up tomorrow :)

Thanks, OP.

Picked up Veronica Mars S3. Perfect timing as I had a RZ cert that was about to expire too. So I scored it for about $16.50 after taxes.

The third season was only a letdown in comparison -- it was still head and shoulders above almost everything else.

I wouldn't even call it a letdown, but I agree with the latter part of your statement. Got my VM S3 and GG S7 today. I love Prime! My VM S3 had some indentions on it, but oh well.

Went to Best Buy to get Veronica Mars Season 3 and Gilmore Girls Season 7 for $19.99!!!
And guess what...the last day for that special is Feb.9...

Oh BTW if they don't have a season you are looking for ask for a raincheck...

Despite multiple stores having some stock in their computers, nobody seems to be able to find a Gilmore Girls season 7 when I go into the store (Best Buy). Instead of ordering it online (then getting it cancelled when they can't find it in store, and getting free shipping from BB.com), I just ordered it from Amazon for the same price with no tax.

How is one tree hill? Never saw it.

1st off, you get Sophia Bush. Besides her utter beauty, the girl can act~!

2ndly, the show is phenomenal. Great writing & story. Not just your simple afternoon soap shows...

I'm not a soap guy, nor a big chick movie person, but this show hooked me right in. Watching it just for Sophia dried up fairly quick, and show became a mainstay in our family. My wife just loves it!

Currently recording S5 on the DVR.

For $20/pop...go for it
