Very hot!

Best TV show ever made for those with a spare tenner get it bought:thumbsup:

release date, 29/12/2008 ???

Hot, hot, hot. One of the best ever. But don't think you're only paying £9.99 though, oh no no no. You'll buy the lot, yes you will - even you shaking your head at the back. You will, mark my words.

Read a few things about this tv show ....is it good?

Buy this sit back, and watch the best TV show ever made. You will soon be buying all the other seasons. I finished all of them in less than a month.

Not a ****-lickingly good and evangelical as some people think but as TV series go it is an extremely fine example of what emotional, powerful, intricate and thrilling storytellling the medium can sometimes be capable of.

So, yes, it is. Not a 'dipper' of a series though, more a several eps in one sitting type. Plus the dialect can be tough if you're not a street smart playa like what I are.

Yo blood, you should be chatting what I IS, not what I are.

You're right about buying the lot though. I watched season1, missed season 2 because my sky box broke and ended up buying it on dvd. Gradually bought the lot and was only missing season 4 - thanks to this post in around three weeks I shall be the proud owner of the lot.

You're wrong about it not being as good as some people make out. At the risk of nailing my colours to the mast, it is the best TV show ever.

Fact.

Veryyyyy tempted. :santa:

It's a great series, but I don't agree with all the hype around it on various forums. Season 1 is a slow-burner and quite dark/dreary (I suppose that's down to the setting). Season 2 I thought was much better, in terms of characters, storyline and dialogue. Just started Season 3 and so far it's closer to the first season in watchability - very enjoyable but in no way on a par with the like of Oz, the Sopranos, or West Wing.

Is it 2 OR 4?

It's BOTH

its my favourite show, great price.

Seen all 5 seasons.

Thanks just got Season four. Please post when you hear of great discounts on season five.

Not watched any of the previous three I have bought yet but everybody whose opinions I respect raves about it so I have put my trust in them.

the 29th though, so the 4 seasons available are pre-orders?

So it will at least play in a region 2 player

yep, they are region 2, and region 4. They will play in region 2 players, and region 4 players.

Bought all 4 !!!!

Look on Amazon, there is hardly one bad review out of about 200 - nuff said.

Try not to watch it before at least 1 and 3. You will pick it up but it's the sprawling epicness of it that is a large part of its appeal and 1 and 3 contain so much backstory.

Why do you think this isn't till 29th Dec release?

Everyone has their own favourite. Thats wah's so good about it.

Personally S2 was the weakest for me. Ziggy is the worst character across the 5 series.

S4 is the best by far. Omar best bad guy, Bunk the best cop. All IMO of course

Oh, and greatd deal, H+R!

It took me ages to get into the first season. I left a gap of a few months after the first few episodes and then got right into it and watched the next 4 seasons in about as many weeks! I was watching 3 or 4 episodes a day sometimes.

Oh come on! It poos all over Oz. Oz went totally off the rails in last 2 seasons. The ending was laughable. This is a slow burner because it takes time to establish it's characters and detail plots. Every season starts slow and builds to an incredible crescendo. Admittedly it's not action all the way but that's what makes it so real. I've watched Sopranos, West Wing, Oz and this right through and it's right up there. And you're right, Season 2 is about as good as telly has ever got.

Damn, that's a good deal! Hot hot hot!

Hey, thanks for this couldn't resist such a bargain, I bought all 4 seasons even though I've never seen it before but i figured id like it as I like Dexter, Prison Break, Lost etc. I would of come across this sometime but can anyone tell me why the release date is 29th Dec on the site?

im sure it's good but band of brothers is meant to be the best tv series ever from imdb's rating

Once you've seen it, you'll feel ashamed that you wrote that sentence.

Buy it !!!!

Stunning series.

I dont even buy that many DVDs but I want to buy the complete boxset shrink wrapped and leave it on my coffee tale as a reminder of its greatness.

Absolute bargain for a belter of a series - certainly for my money the best on TV.
Slow burner, sometimes frustrating, but that's what makes it so real.
buy it!

may have already been mentioned, but it has first 4 series for this price!

I am seconding that. BOB is good, but this is the best written and acted show ever IMO. This isnt hype, its really that good. I have the 1st 2 seasons so will buy 3 and 4. MAJOR heat from me.:thumbsup:

It says no special features, I'm hoping this isn't some cheaper edition re-release? Not that it would affect how good the show is, of course, I just like to get the full package on boxsets.

What a price, great series love em watched all 5 series in about a week!!!I didn't get out much that week!!

I watched the first series to see if it lived up to the hype.

Unfortunately it was slower than a 3 toed sloth and not half as interesting

Just warning newcomeers that it may be an acquired taste and they should watch a few eps first (if they can stay awake)

Believe the hype, really is the greatest show of all time

Season 4 is by far the most powerful season of any show I have ever seen

Heat added....now i just need season 5 to come down in price
