Good news everyone!

Along with a whole bunch of others, Futurama Season 1 got a price drop. $19.99 CAD. Hooray! Now more people can get in on the legacy.

(Sorry for posting this in General Discussion first. Wasn't even thinking.)

Really? Fantastic news! I love myself for not getting it yet. *Does a horrible dance which ends with me in the hospital* I know what I'm going to buy as soon as I get out!

$20 Canadian?  That seems really cheap.  $30 I could see, but 20???  It's beyond my wildest dreams of DVD bargins!  Now no Canadain fan (or USA fans who live near the border) have an excuse for not owning the DVD!

You think that's good? Season 1 of the Simpsons was dropped to 16 bucks at Futureshop... (about 12 bucks US, $20 Canadian is around $15 USD).  It's DVD buying time...

$20.00 CAD = $15.3011 USD

1 CAD = 0.765056 USD
1 USD = 1.30709 CAD

I guess it doesn't matter anyway if you're posting this information at a board full of Futurama nuts, considering all of us already have the first season on DVD. However, this is good to use if we want to brainwash more of our friends into liking it. When I was watching the first season, I held a certain magic to me that the other seasons just didn't have.

I just went out and bought the Simpsons Season One set. I also picked up a Futurama set for my friend's b-day. Like I said, there are others in this price drop, including Family Guy $22.99 CAD, Buffy $17.99 CAD, 24 $28.99 CAD & Angel 32.99 CAD. Though the latter 3 might not interest most of us (as it surely doesn't do anything for me), it's just nice to see season sets coming down in price.

I'm assuming he's talking about Futureshop, they seem to have major price cuts on a bunch of TV show first seasons. I think that Futureshop is the Canadian counterpart of Best Buy... though BB's web site doesn't seem to indicate similar prices... I think this deal is Canadian only.

It's pretty safe to assume that this is a canadian only affair at this point, but that does not mean that prices elsewhere won't fall shortly.

It makes perfect sense that Future Shop would be the canadian equivalent of Best Buy as it was bought out by Best Buy a few years back. But now, we also have Best Buys in Canada. Two huge stores with the same prices, policies and owners in direct "competition" with each other. Talk about trying to corner the market. Funny thing is that the two Best Buys in my city are right next door to the two biggest Future Shops in my city. Ugh!

Future Shop and Best Buy aren't the only places that are offering deals on these select first season titles; HMV is striking a "deal" as well. And it almost sounds too good to be true, and well... it is. They offer a "Buy 1, get 1 free" deal which sounds great and all, but here's the kicker. They didn't lower the prices when their cost went down, they raised them. Sooooo... for example:

- Futurama S1 is selling for $19.99 at FS & BB
- Futurama S1 is selling for $49.99 at HMV (over double the price)

So, HMV's deal isn't much of a deal at all... it's more of crafty way of appealing to the human brain's penchant for malfunctioning at the sight of the word "FREE". I hate HMV. They've always been robbers and always will be. Anyone who shops there is voluntarily being robbed.

HMV sucks ass, but where I live, they have the biggest selection of DVD's, so more often than not I have to shop there.
