Joey: Season 1 - $15.99 on Amazon!

Amazon has dropped the price on the awesome Joey - The Complete First Season by a whopping 60% to $15.99, by far the best price of any online retailer.

I don't know how long this sale is going to last, but at this price I'm sure their stock is going to run out pretty quickly.

Joey Season 1:

Probably as quickly as the show getting cancelled.

Actually, that price drop is a pretty good sign that they haven't been able to give this thing away.

Re: Joey: Season 1 - $15.99 on Amazon!

For those that don't get the joke: The original poster is being sarcastic and is making a callback to the seemingly unlimited number of copies that everyone found at Big Lots last summer that they couldn't even move at $6.....it was a running gag in those big threads for quite awhile....

^ In my opinion, the references in those threads grew just a bit tiresome. And now to have a brand new thread created seems like overkill to me.

Hey, you can pair it up with The War at Home, priced at $12.49, to get free shipping!

Me, too, and I like both, but this thread is totally unnecessary...

What is with that eerie picture in the upper left of the box art?
Looks like one of the masked nurses in the Silent Hill game.

Maybe it would increase sales if the second season would make it to the US at a reasonable price. I like the show & it was the first title I picked up in the Big Lots/Warner ordeal.

Re: Joey: Season 1 - $15.99 on Amazon!

Heh, I approve of this topic.

That show is a staple example of how people in television don't know what they're doing. They take a great character and just surround it which uninventive crap. If I had control on a spin of with Joey I would have kept him in New York and had him dive into theater work with hilarious results. Plus they completely seemed to forget about Joey's number of sisters (what were there? like 7 or more?) which could have been great to use for the spin off sitcom. Totally dropped the ball NBC.

The problem with keeping him in New york was that you would have to explain why the rest of the cast from Friends is no longer involved in his life. It was easier to have Joey move from NY than it would be to say that the other five friends moved out of New York.

I enjoyed the show and was glad to get a copy from Big Lots for $6. Was it the greatest show ever? Not even close, but it was more entertaining than a lot of the junk on tv now days.

I'd like to see season 2 on dvd for $6......

I still see this for $6 at some Big Lots stores- I might buy it if it ever goes to $3.

Re: Joey: Season 1 - $15.99 on Amazon!

I did like the very first scene of the new show, where he takes a cab from the airport and tells the cab driver about starting a new life in L.A., and the cabbie says "But what brings you to Dallas?" Then Joey says "Doh! I did have a layover in Dallas..." Good stuff, man...

They missed an opportunity to show the weird and wooly side of struggling actors in LA, with bad showcase theater trying to get an agent. He was too comfortable in LA. It should have been more of the fish out of water, complaining about LA. The show was too generic and comfy with him living in that enormous guest house. This is why sitcoms today are few and far between.

I'm not sure what you mean by this.

Wasn't this a $3 Big Lots title last year?

I didn't know this was a spinoff of "Friends". I thought it was a spinoff of "The Sopranos" and picked up after Adriana was whacked and went to Hell.

Actually I would have had him trying to catch ghosts while getting into all manner of zaniness ... while juggling cats!

I could never get into this show ... just a cheap spinoff.
