Unusual DVD classifications at BestBuy.com

I went to BestBuy.com to check out their online price for Stargate SG-1, Season 6; only to discover that it is listed as:
Best Buy > Movies > Horror > General Horror >

I also discovered that Season 1 and Season 4 are listed under:
Best Buy > Movies > Horror > General Horror >

Strangest of all is Season 5, which is listed as:
Best Buy > Movies > Comedy > General Comedies >




For what itís worth, Seasons 2 and 3 are more appropriately listed as:
Best Buy > Movies > Television > General Television >

Keep in mind that BestBuy.com is run by idiots and monkeys. You can't expect intelligence out of them.

The Best Buy site ranks right up their with Microsoft's site... HORRIBLE. I don't get how these companies make millions but can't for the life of them make a search feature that actually works on their web sites.

At least you can hope a monkey picks up the phone when you call them to complain.

Commander Dan - This is nothing. At least on BestBuy.com you can do a search. Have you ever tried to find something in one of their STORES?!

Reading the title of this thread, I thought it was referring to that congealed mess they call the "special interest" section at their B&M's. It should more appropriately be called their "we're too lazy to file the loose dvd's" section.
