It is $26.99 at Amazon so that qualifies for free shipping with a $25 purchase.

So free shipping by itself.

Very cool. I love Dennis Miller. I don't understand all of the hate he gets. He's one of my favorites. I'm in for the set.

I don't like his politics, but at its best his comedy is unparalleled

I agree. I was a huge fan of Miller's back when I was in college, and was lucky enough to see him live at Washington University in St. Louis, just after his first HBO special aired. What I liked about him was that he made good political points on both sides, so you never knew what his take on a subject was going to be. But after 9/11, he snapped, and his rants just weren't funny aymore. He just sounded like a cranky old man.

Still, this is a pretty impressive set for the price. It's worth it to me just for his early stuff.

I couldn't agree more. I think he's had about 30 jobs since 9/11 (when he lost his sense of humor and became a neocon). I wish they offered a set of pre 2001 specials.

Five of the seven specials in this set are pre-2001, so I figure it's worth the $27 purchase price. Even the post-2001 specials have their funny moments, but even if you never watch them the set is still worthwhile.

Yes, he seemed to become an immoderate reactionary overnight. I don't remember him being that way before. I miss his old show, especially the part at the end when he commented on news photos.

Sorry to hear that. I've bought from them often have been fortunate enough not to experience the problems that others seem to encounter. For this price, I can't pass it up.
