Re: Big Lots Part 8 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

4/$10 ended last Saturday at mine. They were kind of a mess - a lot of $5 titles mixed in with the $3s. I think people probably brought stacks of the $5 ones up to the registers thinking they were $2.50 and then put them back randomly.

Was still going on this past Sunday at the Pearland(Tx) store - sign was up & the $3 DVDs rang up that way ($2.50 for 4+). Don't know about since then.

Re: Big Lots Part 8 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

A *few* box sets appeared here yesterday at $8/each:

The Invisible Man (SciFi channel one) S1 (one copy)
Magnum P.I. - S7 (one copy)
Simon and Simon - S1 (one copy)
Coach - S2 (5 copies)
Starter Wife - Miniseries (4 copies)

At first I thought "Coach" was a "best of" type thing as it is 2 standard keep-cases in a cardboard holder. But it's the entire season (20 episodes) on 2 disks.

and at $4:
Fear Factor - S1 (6 copies)
Sitting Ducks - S1 (4 copies)

There were also *lots* of the "Saturday Night Live" - "Best of" compilations. I didn't look to see which ones, but there were 30+. I *think* they were $3/each but I didn't look too closely.

SNL stuff was $4 at my BL. Nothing that hasn't been there before -- David Spade, Adam Baldwin, Commercial Parodies, Cheri Oteri and Sat Morn Funhouse

Restock of Legend films with some new ones as well. Saw a couple of RiffTrax ones (Missile to the Moon and Night of the Living Dead). There is no indication these have the colorized versions included. Anyone verify?

Also saw:
Pied Piper http://www.amazon.com/Pied-Piper-Don...0919077&sr=8-2
The One And Only ~ Henry Winkler,
The Optimists -- Peter sellers
a Beatles doc and some others.

Spotted those this evening... and yeah, the SNL stuff is $4.

Picked up the only copy of Invisible Man S1 as a blind buy...

Pearl Tacoma Wa got SMALL amounts of the stuff reported above: Mystery Theater, 3 or 4 weak TV boxes @8, SNL, Legend (both new & restock) & 1 or 2 animae titles. Bridgeport still hasn't gotten anything since the $5 Paramount batch.

Re: Big Lots Part 8 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

One of my closest locations received a big restock of the Warner titles. Plenty of copies of Red Sonja, Unforgiven and other Clint Eastwood titles, Prince and the Showgirl, Exorcist 2, and various others of the Warner titles that came with this batch. It was not new to them since I know they received these titles last year. I was disappointed since I was hoping for something new.

One of the most witty and fun shows ever to grace that TV quality wasteland that is the SciFi channel. The character chemistry was amazing, the four leads come from four different corners and then bounce off each other like they've been performing their act for years. And the visuals are impressive - not for the effects (which aren't bad, but this is made for TV), but for the brilliant execution. As an example, if I live to be 90 and go senile, the jaw droppingly hilarious chase scene of the invisible biker and invisible skateboarder through a crowded downtown will forever remain etched in my memory (caveat - I do not remember if that was season 1 or 2).

It was criminal that the series was cancelled after 2 seasons, especially in favor of preserving the garbage that is the Stargate franchise. Like Farscape, about the only thing SciFi channel knows what to do with quality written shows is to strangle them in the crib. The disappointing part about the DVD set showing up on clearance at Big Lots is it probably indicates we'll never see season 2 released to DVD.

Re: Big Lots Part 8 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

Went to Big Lots on Saturday (My Birthday) and did not really find much, but I did find two titles of interest:

Beverly Hills Cop (I Love the 80's Edition)
The Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear


both were $3.00 and I think I got the last copy of BHC.

Other movies I saw (but did not buy) were:

King Kong (1976)(Old cover art)
The Bad News Bears (1976)
Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
The Naked Gun (Which I already have)

The Kennett location just got a shipment yesterday, but didn't put any new stock out. We'll probably see the new stuff in about 2-3 more weeks.

Re: Big Lots Part 8 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

I'm hoping my BL restocked this week. I'm getting tired of picking through Bad News Bears and all the other titles I've been passing over for weeks now. I'm still hoping I'll find Chinatown Centennial one of these trips.

Re: Big Lots Part 8 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

I got lucky yesterday and was able to pick up The Invisible Man for $4. The box was missing the pricing sticker so the cashier used a copy of Fear Factor to scan

Me too. The BL by me has had the same stuff for a couple months now. I wanted to nab Airplane since I found the sequel there a few weeks back. It seems they only get a couple copies of it and they go fast.

Re: Big Lots Part 8 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

My BL got a shipment in this morning and had 8 of those cardboard trays packed full of new titles. They also had a pallet still shrink-wrapped that the clerk said were more DVDs. Just wish the store wasn't cross town. Saw the 6th day and And Justice For All that hasslein mentioned. Each tray had three copies of each title. I picked up an assortment including The Cave, Anacondas - Hunt for the Blood Orchid, Roughnecks - Trackers, Master of Disguise and Wind Chill.

Thanks Drake, I took a swing by and grabbed a copy of Coach S2 and The Invisible Man S1. Also saw about half a dozen copies of The Starter Wife so I picked up one of those as well. Last, but not least, I found a single copy of "Hana: The Tale of a Reluctant Samurai". I hadn't heard about that one mentioned here yet.
