Best Buy-Exclusive Mr. Show Giftpack $66

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=++&id=1488124

Not sure exactly what's in this, but I recall David Cross mentioning on his site a while back that a giftpack with some extra stuff was coming.

I need to see what extras are included before I sell my current sets.

I think early word is that it came with an air freshener or something, so this is more for people who haven't bought it yet.

Is this worth a blind buy?

I'd have to second that.

Definitely worth a blind-buy for anyone who likes Monty Python, since this is it's 90's incarnate.

I think it's totally worth a blind buy. Hands down my favorite show. Ever. It's hilarious. David Cross is my hero.

If you end up only liking half of the skits, you'll feel like you got a bargain! Wish I had that cool box, but seemed like forever just waiting for the individual releases (one each year).

Does anyone know if this will be exclusive to the website or will it be available for in store purchase? Also, it looks as if it includes seasons 1-4. Can anyone vouch for this? At $66 its practically stealing considering they are roughly $30 a peice for individual seasons.

Boy this is going to drive me crazy. I hate when things like this that I'd buy pop up with no information whatsoever.

Yeah, it would be a great deal for those who don't already have it. I wish I had waited for a box set instead of buying each one as soon as it came out, but I LOVE that show and could not wait, same with Curb Your Enthusiasm.

I'm with you Lecithin. It doesn't seem like we'll be missing much. I feel the extra $10-$20 I spent over this to get each of the three sets at release has been well worth it. Now if it came with a Pit-Pat plush or a coupon to Coupon: The Movie, I'd be burning down Globochem and HBO headquarters.

I just have one other question. Do you think this is the set price or a sale price?

It says "On Sale" right under the price...

I wouldn't go as far as that but if it came with a free Red Balloon, well Jeepers Creepers, I don't know what I may do then.

Already own all the seasons, but if this came with a Three Times One Minus One cd I would be all over it.

DAMN.

I don't see any news about this at Bob and David's website. They're usually really good about letting fans know when something new and worth their cash is out there. Also, they say why Run, Ronnie, Run is not worth buying, so I would take that as an accurate display that this is nothing but the previous releases in a shiny box.
