Six Feet Under: The Complete Series DVD $69.99 at Target

Valid online and in-store:

http://www.target.com/Six-Feet-Under...20under&page=1

24 disc set that includes a special collectible booklet and both series soundtracks. Just picked up one of these bad boys and it's a really awesome looking set - layed out like a book, with each "page" containing a disc.

This is $88.49 at Amazon, $114.86 at Wal-Mart, and $129.99 at Best Buy.

Beautiful and a great deal.

How's the disc protection? Are they scratched?

Absolutely worth every cent! I got the old packaging with the grass on top from Amazon for around $55.

One note though: Next week all HBO sets will be 50% off at Best Buy. So, this could be cheaper then.

It will be $74.99, so this deal is still better. Plus it doesn't come with the soundtracks at Best Buy, as far as I know.

I'm still holding out for the blu ray release. That is a great looking set though!

Pretty sure the soundtracks are not some Target exclusive and come with it everywhere....I got my wife the original fatty "grasstop" box set of the complete series a few years back, and it came with the soundtracks....I recently saw this new slimmer version at Costco, and it indicated the soundtracks CDs were still included too....

While it is a nice looking set. I have yet to see one using any kind of cardboard slots that didn't have issues with the disks at some point. Too bad.

I was in Best Buy yesterday and it wasn't packaged with them. Could be different store-to-store though I guess.

The slim version has no soundtracks. The fat version does.

From my understanding, at least. Can't remember where I read that.

So true, unfortunately.

I might think about buying it from Costco for their great return policy and see just how bad it is. The lowest individual season sets go is $17 and this complete set is the size of only like 1.5 of them. If it doesn't scratch too bad, it may be worth it.

Thanks for the heads up!

I already have all the individual seasons, but it's great to see pictures of the new packaging!

Re: Six Feet Under: The Complete Series DVD $69.99 at Target

I went over to Target after reading this, because I ordered the old packaging for $88, and $18 is enough for a whole new DVD for me, and I didn't really care which package version I wound up getting. Anyways, I scoured the shelves at Target and the set was nowhere to be found . There wasn't even a spot for it on a shelf or anything - I guess my Target isn't carrying the title.

You can use the inventory checker on the link in the op to see which nearby stores have it in stock.

Yeah, the HBO packaging on their complete series sets is a major turn off here...

I buy travel CD books for my complete collections that are in cardboard (the little cases that hold like 40+ disc)

i have my shield and wire sets in them, i know some people prefer to keep the disc in the sets but mine are just displaying and if i wanna watch them i pull out the cd case


EDIT- BTW you can buy the FAT original packaging for the same price from target

http://www.target.com/Six-Feet-Under...20under&page=1

still comes out cheaper then the best buy deal and its the original packaging.

Every store in my area that listed the original, fat set as "Available" did not seem to actually have it. The skinny versions were all I could find (I had the associates check in back and everything). I just purchased the fat set off of eBay for about $88, but I would have bought from Target at this price, were I able to actually find it.

The new set looks cool too, I suppose, but the book design is a little unoriginal (the Rome collection shares the same design) and those cardboard disc holders look prone to scratch.

Your link is the same as the one by the OP. I couldn't find the large SFU case on Target's website.

I bought my complete set off of eBay back in 2006 for $97 (w/shipping), but it was made in a Asian country and the box looks a whole different!

Does anyone know if the Season 1 and 2 discs in this new set are the same 4:3 ones as the original season sets? Or, has HBO finally made them 16:9?
