Friday Night Lights Season 1---August 28th (Money Back Guarantee!)

The underdog show of the 2006-07 season will be released on August 28th. One thing TVshowsonDVD.com pointed out about this ad they posted....The suggested retail price is only $29.98!! Does that sound right?

Here's the link with artwork:

This would be a great blind buy folks...I hope many people take a chance on it. This is such a great show and can hopefully gain viewers and popularity with this release, and stay on the air as long as possible.

That's a phenominal price. Best show on broadcast television last season. Maybe the best on all television.

They left "Lance" off the cover, the only regular not on there.

I never got a chance to watch this series when it aired, but have been eagerly looking forward to the DVDs. At that price the set has been upgraded from "netflix" to "must buy"!

I bet these will be two sided dvds that is why the price is so cheap.

I finally heard the good buzz on this show towards the middle of the season and am very much looking forward to seeing the show from the pilot onwards. I previewed a few scenes throughout the season, but deferred to the DVD release. I'll plan to pick this up as well. Excellent price too!

I'm looking forward to this, but if that price is correct, I'm worried that it's going to be a bare bones release, double sided disks, and/or have music replaced.

Has a full 22-episode season of a one-hour show ever retailed this low upon release?

'Cause that's priced to sell like a motherfucker. Looks like NBC/Universal is selling this at a loss (or close to it), hoping to attract new viewers for the new season.

Damn, at that price it'll be available online for under 20 bucks. Anyone who hasn't seen this show yet owes it to themselves to pick up this set. At that price, there's no excuse not to.


I do hope Universal comes through with a day-and-date HD-DVD release.

When NBC announced that FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS was being renewed for a second season, they promised a "reasonably priced DVD set" to encourage new viewers to give the show a shot before the next season started.

Yeah, I'm torn. I hope it sells well so more people find the show, because it deserves an audience. But it doesn't look like the set is going to get much love in terms of presentation and extras.

TVShowsonDVD.com has confirmed that the price is correct.

Their article lists some extras as well:

Some deleted scenes and a behind the scenes documentary....Hey that's better than nothing.

The small amount of extras and the apparent absence of commentaries isn't a deal killer, but it would be a big let down. And, I'll say it again, at such a low price, I am very concerned about possible music replacement.

I know CBS has been replacing music on some of their TV on DVD releases even for current shows like Ghost Whisperer and Criminal Minds, so it honestly wouldn't shock me.

I'm glad about the low price point, because that'll convert a lot of new fans who might have sat this out with a high list price...but if music is changed I'll be kind of pissed... I love this show and will buy it on release day (just wish it was coming in HD, but I'll take what I can get!)

The main reason for the low price point, Universal tells us at TVShowsOnDVD, is to take the hit on price and get people attracted to the show via the DVD. Then get them to watch Season 2.

Gord didn't ask about music replacement when he talked to them, but they didn't give us any reason to think that music will be replaced, either.

Another one that never watched the show but heard so much about it, so I guess I'll be picking it up.

Man, August and September are turning out to be very expensive TV on DVD months. I'm glad that I held of during the DD sale and saved some $$

Lance? Who's Lance? You mean Landry, Saracen's buddy?
On a side note, this is great show, and I'm really excited its coming to dvd, but i gotta say that the cover artwork sucks. It's real boring.
