Hmm. Seems kind of high for 1/2 a season, but I guess this is the results of the new writer's contract.
I think I'll wait for a bigger sale hopefully.

I'll have to agree with you here. Shortened season shouldn't be this much. But I've already seen it, so I'll wait for it at a better price.

$43.45 here after taxes, assuming in-store pickup. Amazon: $43.95.

I'll stick with Amazon. Might be a better deal in low-tax states.

Of course.
Even the SD sounds a little high. I still have them queued on my older HD DVR, since the wife hasn't watched them yet. I can wait awhile too.

I preordered it from Borders with a 40% code for a grand total of $40.69. I think this code works. BR4906

Do we know the difference in content between SD & BD? Chuck seems like a much better deal for BD then Heroes does at $5 difference.

According to Amazon.com the difference for Heroes: Season 2 pricing is about $15... As for CHUCK, it's actually $10. Never pay SRP.

Different Studios... Different Pricing.

Thanks for the heads up. I went ahead and just ordered from Amazon. $43 after tax + free shipping.

More differentiating factors:

Heroes: 11 episodes
Chuck: 13 episodes

Heroes at least has a precedent set with a feature laden first season, the second season should deliver as well.

I'd call it a wash.

tv series tend to drop in prices fairly quickly (unless it has "trek" in the title).

I'll wait for the inevitable b1g1 or a general drop.

Wow. That sounds pretty cool, especially since the show was getting back on track when it ended. I wonder if that means unfinished CG or missing scenes or what. NBC should have ponied up to finish them and use it as a marketing tool for season 3.

Not generally on Blu.

I sat in on the Heroes panel at Comic Con where they showed the whole first episode of S3, and I can tell you that things look very very good.

Just bought it from B&N [27.99] if your a member and plus if you use the 5% off Visa plus any one of the 15% off coupon codes comes to ..........22.90. Now if you can wait until tomorrow and if they still have it down @ 27.99 then you can use the 5% off Visa link plus 20% off codes C7J8D4W you can get it even cheaper.

You big tease!

Can you tell me if Adam is in the episode?

Now if you can wait until tomorrow and if they still have it down @ 27.99 then you can use the 5% off Visa link plus 20% off codes C7J8D4W you can get it even cheaper.
Now will that 20% code be for anyone or just members?

I got all excited until I realized you bought the SD DVD.

I can, and I don't believe he was. Entertainment Weekly and a whole host of other sites have posted spoilers from it, or a PM would work.
