    Instead of putting up archival, why don't you do the current week first?

    I put up the archival so that (hopefully) anyone who wants the newest info can go straight to the last post. That way they wouldn't have to hunt and find this week's info buried under archival data.

    Has anyone seen the deluxe 2 disc edition of Batman Begins? I've been to Sam's Club, Target & Walmart. Evidently it had production or shipping problems because NOBODY seems to have it, even though its being advertised everywhere. Amazon.com has it for order (shipping times not given), but both Best Buy (who is advertising an exclusive cover) & WallyWorld show it either Out of Stock or Backordered.

    I haven't seen it yet. When I stopped at my WMT (that has it for $14.87) I could only find the FS versions. Somtimes there are huge shipping delays and then you end up finding the disc weeks later for the inflated price. They did this to "Star Trek Generations" for some reason.. yanked them off the shelf and they appeared at Sam's Club for a short time, and now they can be found at BB or MediaPlay. I'd try ordering it through BB.com, Scott and trying for an instore pick-up to get that cover.

    Just an FYI for everyone. If you're buying Harry Potter 4 today, make sure you get the Special Edition (in the silver packaging). The regular widescreen and fullscreen editions don't have the deleted scenes and other extras. Kinda sucks, since we got that for free with Harry Potter 1-3. Now instead of $14.84, it cost me $22.84 (Walmart at 5520 Nolensville Pike).

    Why did they do that??? Ugh! It's not like they made the movie 3 hours long like it should have been according to how big the book was. I thought they would have included tons of deleted stuff to make us Harry Potter fans happy at no extra charge!

    Best buy was the same price as Target. Plus Best Buy is taking pre-orders for The Lion, the Witch, & the Wardrobe (April 4th). If you preorder it you also get $5 off any Disney movie. So I picked up Lady & the Tramp for my daughter.

    Let me know where the best deal on Reno 911! Season Three is... it's high up on my list. (release date is tomorrow)

    The best price for Reno 911! Season 3 appears to be $16.99 at Best Buy. I think other stores had it for $1 more, but $16.99 was the lowest I saw in the ads (Good thing you asked about a DVD I was interested in) & going totally off the top of my head I'm 99% sure BB was the only place with that price.
