Andromeda Season 2 Collection $23.99 + s/h & tax @ BestBuy.com

Andromeda Season 2 Collection [5 Pack]-DVD SKU: 6649013
Best BUY ONLINE @$23.99 plus 1.69 shipping & tax-Still only $27+
Looks like IS FOR season2 only...but it should be a find for those fans of this great sci-fi series who haven't bought it already.
Anyone who finds subsequent season prices, please advise...love the series, can't afford the cost unless it's a deal like this that can't be passed

How does this show rank with the likes of Stargate, Battlestar G., Babylon 5, etc.?

too bad i already have this. it is a very good deal though. I second the sentiment that if anyone finds other seasons for a cheaper price, please do share.

At the bottom, way, way, way, at the bottom. It started out OK and goes downhill quickly.

It's not a bad show though for that kind of money. Although there are much better ones around to spend money on.

I agree with this assessment. At the start it had promise, and the premise was different enough to seem interesting. Sorbo's a likeable performer, and the composition of the rest of the cast was pretty good (the only one I couldn't stand was Harper). Things went wrong IMO when they fired Robert Wolfe (best known for doing a lot work on Deep Space Nine) after a couple of seasons. Reportedly, the show's story was too complex for Sorbo, and they wanted to dumb things down. The new writers (and Sorbo, who was now shouldering a lot of the creative decisions) immediately took things in the wrong direction. Two of the more interesting characters left the show, existing female characters had their personalities tweaked. Worst of all, the entire premise and motivation of the show was ditched. It was like the show went from "Deep Space Nine" (or at least trying for this) to "Cleopatra 2525".

Though if you like Sci-Fi, the price is right, and you don't go in with overly high expectations, it might be worth it. For ~$20, the 1st season might be a good blind buy.

Watch the extras. Sorbo comes off as a complete moron.

Just be aware that this is cheaper release for a reason ... these are Double Sided Discs. The original release(s) were all single sided discs with artwork but there were 10 per season.

On the plus side there are less discs thus taking up less shelf space.

The bad well we all know the issues with Double sided discs don't we??

Still a good show (yes it fell off the truck quickly) and a nice price.

Thanks

Greg

The first 2 seasons of Andromeda are pretty good... would recommend to most sci-fi fans. After the second season, the shows quality drops.

Ya know how they should make double-sided seaons sets? For example sake, lets imagine each side of a disc only contains 1 episode. Five discs, a total of 10 episodes.
Disc 1 - Side 1: Episode 1 - Side 2: Episode 6
Disc 2 - Side 1: Episode 2 - Side 2: Episode 7
Disc 3 - Side 1: Episode 3 - Side 2: Episode 8
Disc 4 - Side 1: Episode 4 - Side 2: Episode 9
Disc 5 - Side 1: Episode 5 - Side 2: Episode 10

This way, people like me, who own a 5-disc player, could just stick in the five discs, play through all of the episodes, then flip all 5 discs, and play through the rest of the episodes.

Maybe they already do this, but I highly doubt it.

But wouldn't you be pissed if you had a 10+ disc player? You would have to flip the discs, instead of being able to have all of them in the player at once...

Well, obviously, single-sided is always preferable, hehe. But if they just HAVE to make the discs double-sided...
