I believe this is the lowest price it has ever been. Unfortunately it's missing all of the extras from an apparently out of print "Rhino" version, but is it worth paying triple or quadruple the price for that? Only if you're a big fan. I think I may order at this price because the episodes themselves are all there and intact, from what I read. We'll see if I like it as much as I remember watching it as a kid.

Watch the preview on amazon from the 1st ep. I remember watching part of an episode years after I had originally watched the series and thought it was terrible but that is only my opinion. For this price, it will not matter either way.

I loved this show as a kid. I'm 46 now, and I still love it. The first two seasons were great. For a kid's show, it was remarkably well written and thought provoking. The third season was dumbed way down, but it's still fairly entertaining. The cheesy FX only adds to the show's quirky charm.

Maybe that's the reason for S3 being @ Big Lots now for $3 (if I recall right - no more than $5)?

I recall liking the show as well as a kid. But, after watching a portion of an episode a while back, I couldn't see a reason to pick it up - effects were way too awful for me - IMHO.

Actually ... this was $8 + tax during the 2010 Cyber-Monday sale at Target.com. So now it will always haunt you if you purchase this

I'll confirm that particular season has been $3.

Now I'll never be able to sleep again at night! :-( I probably should've said the cheapest ever at Amazon. I had forgotten about the magical $8 Cyber Monday sale at Target.com where lots of TV season sets and BDs were around $8 or less. I totally missed it due to it being described very poorly when I first saw the thread, and when I checked back much later when people clarified it it was dead. Then I got to see everyone post all the great deals they got.

I got in on the target.com deal VERY early, but Land of the Lost was already sold out. It was one of the first titles to go, so no need to kick yourself. Only a lucky few got that title... To make the sweet deal even sweeter, I decided to return a few of the items, and was given back full price! I used my receipt, but apparently that discount was applied differently, so I got back $30 or so for each of the 3 titles I returned.

I already owned it, but I bought four extra sets at that price. I'll sell 'em when it goes out of print and make a small fortune like I did with the Pufnstuf set.

Right now this is on sale for $12.99 at Buy.com (though you have to buy other stuff to get free shipping whereas at Amazon I have a free Prime trial still)!

I barely got this set from Amazon a couple days ago and I'm already in the hole by a whole buck! Oh the humanity of it!

This was in my Gold Box Quick Picks today for 13.29. Interestingly, the price went up to $20 at some point today but I was still able to buy it for 13.29.

For those still interested in this set, Familyvideo.com has it for 11.99 plus tax. Shipping is 1.99 for any size order.

That explains it. Thanks. The Familyvideo.com deal is good if you don't have Prime and can't get to $25.

I'd probably be all over this if I didn't already have the Rhino set.
