Hi all,

I was looking through amazon's promotion of reduced TV show boxsets and didn't see many particularly stunning deals, but I did notice this one which doesn't seem too bad.

It's the series 1 & 2 boxset, for just (amended on 17/8/09 due to price drop!) £8.98 with free super saver delivery. That's thirteen episodes in total, six from series 1 and seven from series 2. I've only watched it a couple of times when there's been nothing else on but for fans of the show, this seems like a fairly bargain price for around what, 12 hours of entertainment?

From amazon:

When evolutionary zoologist Nick Cutter discovers prehistoric creatures alive and well in the present day, the natural world is turned on its head and humanity faces a threat to its very existence. Unexplained anomalies are ripping holes in the fabric of time, allowing creatures from the very earliest stages of Earth's development to roam the modern world. Cutter and his team struggle to keep the looming disaster secret while dealing with savage dinosaurs and other deadly foes.

This 4-disc box set includes series one and two of this popular ITV1 drama.

Includes exclusive DVD extra Through The Anomaly, an access-all-areas behind-the-scenes documentary made by Andrew-Lee Potts.

Also including audio commentaries.

It's also available on for £9.99 so I guess you could technically get 5% off the price there if you can be bothered to faff about with the RAC voucher, although you would get quidco too I guess. Next cheapest after that is £25+

Never mind :)
Earlier in the week the hut were doing series 2 for £3.89 and 1 can be got for £4.99 BUT series 1 has gone back up now so this is the cheapest I can see if you want both series!
Is this any good?. I've never seen it....... i was saving my cash for supernatural 4, but the boxset isnt out till november!.

Still the cheapest (along with £9.99 @ Play) for Seasons 1 and 2 together :)

I'm sure you'll find plenty of reviews on the net from a far greater variety of people to come to a conclusion yourself that you can trust.

My opinion having only watched the odd moment on TV is that the dialog was atrocious and the special effects, when compared to US sci-fi, was laughably bad. It's throwaway TV, not to be taken at all seriously. However I feel that way about Doctor Who also, so what do I know?
Series 1 was really good - intelligent writing, good characters and dialogue and clever use of time anomolies. The cliff hanger at the end of the season was trully brilliant.
Then along came series 2 and ruined it all. Dire dialogue, scientists who somehow became gun-toting special forces operatives overnight, and a complete de-valuing of the awesome series 1 cliffhanger.
Don't waste your time with series 2 - it'll just leave you bitter like me! Buy the first series and leave it at that. Cold, sorry but any price for season 2 is too much... its only a good deal if you get value for your money.
Does anyone know where to get series 3 cheap?:?

As mentioned, there are plenty of online reviews.

Personally I found it went disappointingly downhill from the entertaining 1st series. It was never exactly highbrow intelligent sci-fi, but it was entertaining and fun to start with. Actors then started dropping out like flies and the plots getting sillier and sillier - it's literally one of those shows you end up shouting at the screen about how illogical it is at *every* turn while enjoying it at the same time. I thought the sfx were very good.
Will give this a little bump, they've knocked a quid off so now £8.98 :)

EDIT: Back to £9.98 now, still cheapest according to find-dvd as of 15/09/09.
