Many of these FOX Season One titles were previously $15 in an earlier Amazon sale (including 24) so I guess a few of us are still waiting for better prices on later seasons. Most studios are now pricing older, slower-selling seasons lower so they shift off shelves as seen with recent price drops on Futurama and some other Fox TV titles.

Wow, can´t believe my eyes. Roswell S1-S3 for only 19.97/19.99 each, now that´s the best price i´ve seen them online, ever.

(Excluding the S1 deal for $15, of course.)

Additional $5 off if you buy Roswell Season 3 with Season 1.

Calmuser - yes, if you are prepared to wait - most DVDs will keep price dropping until they become reasonably-priced enough to buy.

Of course if they don't sell enough initially then some short-sighted studios will delete them, or delay the release of future seasons. Firefly seems to be a perennial top selling TV series on DVD, yet it failed according to Fox TV execs.

Well most will, depends on how one likes the series will determine how much they will pay. But I highly doubt ST will ever get low enough for me to plunk down the cash for.

Been waiting for Roswell to come down in price, as it wasn't a high priority item.

I picked up Dark Angel Season 1 and X-Files Season 1 from this sale, now to find Dark Angel Season 2 for a good price. I wish I had grabbed it a few weeks ago when Best Buy had it for $14.99.

This is the old "Collector's Edition" which originally came out with an MSRP of $149.9x if you can believe it.
They were knocked down to $99.9x after a few years. Never went down further except with stores who didn't have the energy to differentiate when the new editions came out.

If you want Roswell, you better order it now. Lately, Amazon has been matching sale prices from Best Buy. BB has all three seasons of Roswell on sale this week for $19.99. The sale ends tomorrow, so Amazon will most likely raise their prices in the next 48 hours or so.
