Get A Life complete series $24.99 @Amazon

Link. Historically low price according to camelcamelcamel; part of a "classic TV box set sale" involving a few other titles as shown in this link. Since it's a Gold Box deal, the price might only be today (Sunday June 9th) only. Not sure.

The set got a "Highly Recommended" review here at DVDTalk. Chris Elliott's humor admittedly is an acquired taste for some.

Personally my backlog of unwatched box sets is so massive right now, I'm going to hold out for $19.99 on this one....

This is something that's going to silently go OOP and skyrocket in price. There wasn't a huge demand for it but the fans have been wanting it for a long time. I'd get it now if you liked it.

They don't usually include Lightning Deals in the price history, but I think I only paid $23 for my set during the one in November last year.

Picked 1 up on Amazon Marketplace "Like New" for $18.00 and change shipped! Thanks OP for bringing this up though. Never knew about this series but sounds very interesting! Looking forward to watching this now-

It seems the quality is not great, but this is not likely to get any other release, so I ordered one.

It's been around $20 on ebay regularly since release. Several sellers.

I disagree with that. It looks pretty good to me and the extras are nice for such a show with a small fanbase.

Sorry, I was just going by the Amazon customer reviews about the transfer quality. I loved the show when it originally aired and am really looking forward to seeing it again.

I thought the picture quality sucked. But I'm extremely happy it came out at all.

I guess it's one of those, it is what it is. I'm used to the old DVD releases and VHS. Since the set looks like the previous DVD releases, I was happy.
