Glad to see this is 1.78:1. Amazon lists it as 1.33:1. Thanks for the box art, gerrythedon. For the rest of today, it is $24.25 at FYE.com with coupon code FEBDVDTENOFF (additional 10% off of that for backstage members). There is tax, but shipping is free... For $23.05 shipped, I bit...

This show was actually not bad. I was really surprised that Sci-Fi threw in the towel on it especially after ordering 22 episodes for this season.

Kristanna Loken is nice to look at and there was some good action.

Unfortunately, I missed episodes 20-22 as they were airing when the fall season began.

Currently $24.99 preorder at Bestbuy, and Amazon. Even better price now!

I picked this up at Best Buy yesterday ($25), but am wondering now if it was wise. I'm reading a lot of negative reviews about the show.. but the couple of comics I read I enjoyed. Also, $25 for 6 discs seems a good price! Has anyone else picked this up and watched it yet? And if so, what'd you think?

I watched 19 of the 22 episodes on Sci-Fi and pretty much enjoyed it. It's very action oriented and I thought Kristanna Loken was pretty good as Jane. It felt like watching a straight to video B movie.

I think the show mainly got criticized because of the acting, but IMO who gives a fuck especially for a Science Fiction action show? It's not Battlestar Galactica quality, but it was fun. $25 for 22 episodes is a good price IMO.

OK, I guess I got sick of waiting. Took the plunge for $20 at Amazon because I had some Borders store credit and it's likely that Borders GC's won't be valid at Amazon for much longer.

Off-topic, but why do you think that Borders GC's won't be valid at Amazon? I usually get my Discover cash back in Borders GC's to use on Amazon.

part of the B1G1 at DD, but there is nothing to pair it with.

There is a long discussion of it in the Store forum, but on (or around) May 18th Borders will take it's new website on-line and divorce itself from Amazon. After that time, the GC will only work on the new Borders site.

Just an FYI, if any of you guys have Netflix, you can watch this show's entire season in the Instant Viewing/streaming section.

Thanks very much for the information. Hopefully the prices will be in line with Amazon's prices instead of RRP. I'll make sure to check the Store Forum thread. Thanks!
