Has anyone seen Murder One? If so, how is it? Would it be a good bb?

It would be a great bb if you like drama. Check the dvdtalk review or read the reviews at Amazon.

Just so everyone knows, Best Buy price matching will match the online wal-mart price if you don't want to have it shipped.

The other night I was in BB, and asked if they would price match (since my wal-mart is out of stock), and the place that they checked the price was online (of course at that time it was $30.

It was a great show, and a shame back then that the format of a case continuing for a whole season may have kept away
late-joiners. (And forced Season 2 to span 3 cases.) The acting is top-notch and it's well worth watching. I even love that theme music!

Meaning, some stores might have the deal while others don't.

I bought this one when they had the half off deal at Fox last year. I had remembered watching it when it was originally out and was very happy to watch it all again. It was nice that I didn't remember the final outcome, so it came as a surprise to me once again

Anyone order from Walmart before? How is their shipping? Will the boxes be damaged?

I've ordered from Walmart twice and both times the DVDs were shipped in envelopes and the dvds were all smashed up. I didn't complain because they were both price mistakes and ridiculously cheap.

I wouldn't be too worried about getting these at walmart. These prices will probably spread across the retail market, the same way it did for
the Dukes of Hazzard, Everybody Loves Raymond, Nip/Tuck, Smallville, etc earlier this year.

For those in the Cleveland area, I found a display at the Strongsville location. IT was pretty full except for Millennium where there were only 2 (er, make that 1 ) left. I also picked up firefly.

I'll post it again, since some people seem to have missed my message on this same page. You can do a price match at BB if your local wal-mart is out of stock. At my local BB they used the online walmart.com price to validate my claim.

I finally got a copy of firefly

That's so true with Wal-Mart.

I went to look for a copy of Godzilla: Final Wars last week at my local Wal-Mart. After looking for a bit I asked an employee for help. He said that he's never seen that title and he was pretty sure they didn't get it yet. To be sure, he asked another employee who quickly agreed that they didn't get that title yet. As I turned to walk off the second employee pulls a DVD off a shelf in front of him and yells out "Hey, here's one right here!"

I tired to pricematch at my local BB. They called Walmart, the person who picked up the phone didn't know how to transfer lines, so they actually walked to Electronics to look for the DVDs themselves. It'd take Dr. Jones and a full entourage of literature's greatest treasure hunters to find a specific DVD on the shelves of that store, so I had little hope. Sure enough, a few minutes later they said they didn't have any.

You think they'll take a printout of the walmart.com product page as proof?

My Wal-Mart also had The Shield Seasons 1 & 2 for $19.xx. I grabbed em because I failed to get em on Black Friday at Best Buy. Got those and Murder One. I didn't see Ally McBeal at mine and Firefly was sold out. Might go back to get Wonderfalls.

I think I'm going to go back and throw some more of the titles on layaway ( Mill., Dark Angel, etc.....til next payday.

I've ordered twice and they shipped them in padded envelopes, this is TV show box sets. They both arrived smashed and in terrible condition. At least you can return them to the store if they are damaged. Best Buy now does the same thing. I will not order any DVD's from BestBuy.com or walmart.com anymore.
