I know you are in Houston, what location did you find them? and what did you get?

For those of you who haven't got the 5/10 to work, you might need to use your Buzz card to get the discount, since it's only for Buzz members.

Westheimer and Gesnner near the beltway. I picked up Twin Peaks S2, Police Squad, and Mork & Mindy S2.

They also had CSI Miami S1, Diagnosis Murder (not sure of the season), random seasons of Family Ties, Cheers, Melrose Place, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and 7th Heaven. They did not have Friday the 13th, which is the one I wanted. They had two rows of them in the wire rack.

If there's anybody in the L.A. area that might want to "join forces" (hit different stores, exchange wish lists, etc). send me a message. I'm hoping some of the stores put these out next week because I hate the BF crowds, but if not I may try and stop in that morning to see what's there.

So do I have to wait for Black Friday to get Black Sunday?

Thanks, hoping it was a little close location. Since the orig. post was yesterday morning and I wouldn't be able to go until tonight, I will probably pass. Hoping my local location will put them out early as well.

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

I went to another BL and there were no signs of $6 DVDs there. I haven't yet had a chance to go back to the 1 store where I found a small amount of these to see if they've pulled them. Anyway, it's not looking very promising that I'll get any more early.

With the old $3 and $6 Warner sets which were not BF, it was just a matter of going to various stores at the right time, and the competition didn't really start for several days (i.e. most people didn't become aware of them immediately), so I got a fair amount of those, bought extras, and traded for most of the ones I wanted.

This sale being limited to BF means everyone will grab them immediately because people are normally in frenzied grab mode on BF, and those of us who go to other stores first on BF will probably not get any by the time we make it to BL.

Had I known these were BF specials, I would've grabbed more stuff to have available for trades. Family Ties is my all-time favorite series, and I guess the concept of anyone passing over them for $6 is beyond my grasp, but we're all different. I passed over Matlock, Macgyver, and JAG, and I bet some people love those. If my store hasn't been reprimanded and pulled theirs (very unlikely), I'll grab some extras next time I'm there in hopes that others will do the same in trade forum.

In exchange, we will be sending you 200 units of Joey Season 1 for your Black Friday sale.
Thank you for your understanding,

Big Lots Corporate Offices
Haven't heard a good Joey joke in awhile.

That goes without saying when dealing with BL... As the store is only a mile from my house and only adds a mile detour going home from the office I plan to swing by every day "just in case".

The best part is the contacts I have will call me if they show up so I really don't need the stop in but I enjoy the hunt as I seem to find a new selection almost every time I give the displays another going over.

I was also at the stores:
US 17-92 and SR 434
Semoran Blvd. and Howell Branch Rd
Colonial Dr. and Bumby

None of these three stores had the TV series.

Picked up Benchwarmers, North Dallas Forty, Big Top Pee Wee, Zodiac, and Dogma Special Edition in the 5 for 10 sale Friday morning at the Longview, Texas Big Lots. The Marshall, Texas one had a pretty horrible selection. Neither of these had any of the seasons you guys are talking about.

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

The TV box sets list just keeps growing and growing! Every time I come on here I have to jot down a few more onto my list. I have 38 box sets on my list already that I'd want to buy out of this sale. But Black Friday at Big Lots? I just don't know. Sounds like a mess / battle to me. I'd miss out on other stores as well. I was thinking of only doing Cyber Monday this year online and forget crowded stores.

Add North Augusta to the list of stores receiving Joey product.

I got two things I was looking for, which is rare for my retail outings: "Son of Rambow" and "Fugitive S1 V1." My wife racked up for Ch'mas, though.

The discount deal allowed me to finally get Powder Blue for the Jessica Biel strip scenes. I would have passed but 2 dollars made it a buy as a fifth selection with a few others.

Not suggesting you do it, but does anyone already have a typed out list of what's been spotted? I'm going to have take some notes myself.

Finally found a very picked over display in Lexington KY (Pavillion Way). Still grabbed quite a few including Family Ties-Season 4 which was the highlight for me as it has been on my wish list since it was released. There's plenty of others I'm interested in so the hunt continues.

^ Excellent! I thought about doing myself, but I was certain someone had probably went through the trouble. Thanks!

I'm trying to recall ones I spotted today and one missing from the list was a Star Trek Borg Collection (?) - I'm not a ST fan so I passed on it. Here's the Amazon link--I'm nearly 100% certain this is the one I saw, several copies in fact.

I want to get Twin Peaks, but after learning S1 doesn't come with the Pilot episode for the series, I might hold off.

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

And for anyone using the above list and trying to maintain a complete list, the Perry Mason that I spotted today was S3V2.

Since the store I found sets at today was picked over, I neglected to pick up a bunch of extras for the trade forum (otherwise that would have really cleared them out). I did buy a single copy of Family Ties S1 (already own it) and an extra copy of Family Ties S4 (since I remembered one or two had mentioned looking for it). I posted in the exchange thread for anyone interested.

More seasons than just the first of Sabrina the Teenage Witch have been showing up? Drats. I guess I'll be making my Big Lots rounds at a few different stores this afternoon.
