(DEAD) The Loop S1 $9.99 "Temporary Price Cut" at Target (YMMV)

I thought about picking this one up today for that price. Its a funny show, but its been a while since the season was on and I couldn't remember just how funny.

I picked it up for that price last week. I enjoyed it, and would like to see it come back.

Its supposed to be back in June. So here's a good opportunity to catch up.

Now I'm thinking I'll go back and buy it. More funny things about the show are popping into my head. His boss was very Bob Kelso-like if I recall.

Came across the DVDTalk review of it: http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=26952

Picked it up this past Friday. I really enjoyed an episode or 2 when it premiered, then lost track. Great chance to catch up. I think the packaging confirms a second season.

I had it in my hand again today and just couldn't think of a reason why I needed to actually OWN it. Even at $9.99.

I'll just continue to watch new episodes on TV.

Sounds like you completed the first of a ten-step recovery program for DVD addicts. Congratulations!

Too bad I'm not there yet!

What's the 10th step, selling off your DVDs on ebay?

I read that the two female roommates wont be back this season(I know one was named Pepper). They're not on the cast list on the official site. Sucks

They were one of the biggest reasons to watch.

Now I refuse to buy out of protest.

And FOX screws up another show.

That does not make a lot of sense. I could see maybe losing the one he did not have a crush on, but the other one was a pretty big plot point in the show. From who they kept, I would have to imagine that they will be focusing more on the work life.

That sucks. I'll give it a shot when it comes back on, but things aren't looking good.

Oh well, atleast it had one good mini-season.

And again...
Buy the $9.99 one at Target and return it sealed to Circuit City (assuming you kept your receipt)

Ugh, I bought a copy as an impulse buy. I'll be annoyed if FX airs a marathon of the season 1 episodes.

I did some searching on the show and it appears that it may be dead in the water when it returns in June. The order was cut from 13 episodes to 10. The girls are gone, but the brother remains. Also, it appears several of the characters are working on other television shows (pilots) including the lead. They say the show is going to focus on work more because that was the funnier part of the show (don't really agree with that). IMHO, it is going to suck - the girls added a lot to the show.

So just buy it again, and return the unopened one for 14.99. Or, if it is in the ad, get back the difference plus 10% at CC.

Sorry, partial repost.
