I know some people picked this up for a few dollars less at Costco a month or two back, but this is still a pretty good deal for one of the best mini-series ever produced.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this version is 1.33:1, which is probably why it is so cheap. There is a Signature Edition, which is around $60, which is 1.78:1. Now, if WalMart has the signature edition for $25...I'm going down there right now. Also the Signature Edition has DTS and DD 5.1 Surround. Don't think the 1.33 version has DTS. Can't remember though.

It's the new version everybopdy is posting about. The first 1:33:1 version is long out of print.

As somebody that has the first version, and believes it looks the best, I'm happy with what I got. But I wish I had only paid $25! Sadly I paid twice that.

Hey DVD Polizei, the Walmart version that I have is the Signature Edition, complete with the message on the front saying New Widescreen Transfer, Remastered in DTS and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound.

Pricematch at BB to get it for $18. That's what I did!

If anyone goes to CC I would check with them first. My store only had one copy in stock for the entire sale.

I went ahead and got this from Buy.com with the GCO. $18 shipped. Thanks for bringing the set to my attention. I always thought this series was much much more.
