Since I'm not living in the UK right now, the price (£18.44) might be slightly off. If someone knows how to calculate it exactly, please let me know and I will update the post.

Here's my calculation:
$23.49 (Firefly) + $3.99 + $2.49 (Standard shipping to Europe) = $29.97
Yahoo Finance Converter: USD $29.97 => GBP £18.436

Thanks to huevosybacon for letting us know the exact price (£19.17), post updated.

Amazon.com description:
As the 2005 theatrical release of Serenity made clear, Firefly was a science fiction concept that deserved a second chance. Devoted fans (or "Browncoats") knew it all along, and with this well-packaged DVD set, those who missed the show's original broadcasts can see what they missed. Creator Joss Whedon's ambitious science-fiction Western (Whedon's third series after Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel) was canceled after only 11 of these 14 episodes had aired on the Fox network, but history has proven that its demise was woefully premature. Whedon's generic hybrid got off to a shaky start when network executives demanded an action-packed one-hour premiere ("The Train Job"); in hindsight the intended two-hour pilot (also titled "Serenity," and oddly enough, the final episode aired) provides a better introduction to the show's concept and splendid ensemble cast. Obsessive fans can debate the quirky logic of combining spaceships with direct parallels to frontier America (it's 500 years in the future, and embattled humankind has expanded into the galaxy, where undeveloped "outer rim" planets struggle with the equivalent of Old West accommodations), but Whedon and his gifted co-writers and directors make it work, at least well enough to fashion a credible context from the incongruous culture-clashing of past, present, and future technologies, along with a polyglot language (the result of two dominant superpowers) that combines English with an abundance of Chinese slang.

What makes it work is Whedon's delightfully well-chosen cast and their nine well-developed characters--a typically Whedon-esque extended family--each providing a unique perspective on their adventures aboard Serenity, the junky but beloved "Firefly-class" starship they call home. As a veteran of the disadvantaged Independent faction's war against the all-powerful planetary Alliance (think of it as Underdogs vs. Overlords), Serenity captain Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) leads his compact crew on a quest for survival. They're renegades with an amoral agenda, taking any job that pays well, but Firefly's complex tapestry of right and wrong (and peace vs. violence) is richer and deeper than it first appears. Tantalizing clues about Blue Sun (an insidious mega-corporation with a mysteriously evil agenda), its ties to the Alliance, and the traumatizing use of Serenity's resident stowaway (Summer Glau) as a guinea pig in the development of advanced warfare were clear indications Firefly was heading for exciting revelations that were precluded by the series' cancellation. Fortunately, the big-screen Serenity (which can be enjoyed independently of the series) ensured that Whedon's wild extraterrestrial west had not seen its final sunset. Its very existence confirms that these 14 episodes (and enjoyable bonus features) will endure as irrefutable proof Fox made a glaring mistake in canceling the series. --Jeff Shannon

That would've been for the DVD. This is the cheapest the Blu-ray has ever been on Amazon.com, it was about £1 more than this at Christmas

depending on the current exchange rate, and whether adding serenity would increase delivery costs, etc., etc., it may be cheaper to pick serenity up separately at hmv/amazon for £7.99 :)
#13
Plus you risk customs hitting you if you ass Serenity.
#14
It used to be available at Amazon.ca for around £21 delivered - I can pretty much guarantee that its never been cheaper than that as I have had it on a price-alert for the past 2 years.

Note: You might get stung for import fees. The last half-dozen times I've ordered from the US, I haven't (touch wood).

I passed on this a few times today before I realised it was the TV series, not Serenity the movie - which was the first BD I bought. Thanks OP! Shiny!

Value Added Tax (VAT) - Import VAT is charged at the same rate that applies to similar goods sold in the UK and applies to commercial goods over £18 in value, and on gifts that are over £40 in value. The value of the goods for import VAT is based on the:

■basic value of goods, plus
■postage, packing and insurance, plus
■any import (Customs or Excise) duties charged.
#25
Postage isn't included in the vat charges. As this is under the limit with out postage you will not be stung.
#26
Bought it as its £15 so under the £18 for tax and £4 postage.

It wont be that cheap in the UK

Books are exempt from import duty etc ;)

I hope i dont get stung as it is stupid. A friend of mine imported the Blade Runner Blu Ray as the set was much better than UK versions and didnt get stung either so like the above said it is probably hit and miss whether they decided the add the charge or not.
