Amazon Canada: 75% Off The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital Copy – Now $10

Amazon Canada: 75% Off The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 Blu Ray + DVD + Digital Copy   Now $10

Did you miss seeing the first part of The Hunger Games Mockingkay movie? Then make sure to grab it at Amazon because it’s currently 75% off and includes a copy of the movie in all of the following formats: Blu-Ray, DVD and even a digital version. Originally priced at $39.99, it’s now down to just $9.99.

Admittedly, the first part of the Mockingjay movies only got up to 6.8/10 in terms of rating on IMDB with numerous reviews stating how disappointed they were in the movie. Personally, I rather loved it and I can be pretty harsh in my reviews as well! It’s a 2-hour movie that will definitely keep you on your toes the entire time but it does definitely help to have watched the previous movies in order to understand what’s going on. It’s not necessary per se, but it does help to situate you and understand some of the jabs.

In a way I can understand the why some reviewers found this movie disappointing but in another way, it makes total sense. Having watched the previous movies and read all of the books, it makes sense that the part one of the Mockingjay series would be setting up the part that is to follow. We would need to wait and see for the second part to hit theatres but I would expect it to be very grandiose with loads of banging action scenes, given that the first part is slower and quieter.

Shipping is only free on orders over $25, so you would need to another filler item. I had a look around in the TV shows and movies currently on sale for 70% off or more and found plenty of great picks like:

If you haven’t see it yet, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is also currently on sale for just $9.99, which is 75% off its original price of $39.99. Reviews for this one are far more favourable as well with a total rating of 4.5/5 stars and 166 reviews in total.

Zumba Fitness Exhilarate Ultimate Experience DVD Set Was $130 | Now $66 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on May 6, 2015 at 7:41 AM

Zumba Fitness Exhilarate Ultimate Experience DVD Set Was $130 | Now $66 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Move and groove with the Zumba Fitness Exhilarate Ultimate Experience DVD set. This large boxed set was $129.99, but you can purchase it for only $66.04. This set also qualifies for completely free super saver shipping.

I have been curious about Zumba for a while now but never made the jump. Near my house, a Zumba fitness studio is pumping up the tunes at least five days a week. I see many tall and lean women (and a few guys also) frequenting that class. It would probably be in my best interest to join them. I think by the time I could escape my house and family regularly for the evening, all of the classes are long over.

Rather than paying for classes that I know I will end up missing half of, I could invest a little less money and pick up this fantastic looking DVD collection. This set includes seven DVDs full of workouts and music that will keep you dancing. I find I need to have a lot of variety in my workout to keep interested, and this set is packed full of options. The music and workouts vary between upbeat Latin, salsa, hip-hop and even belly dancing. Your set will also come with toning sticks, which are a nice set of light dumbbells to help you sculpt as you dance your stress away. I also like that there is an option to turn off the verbal instructions. If you get good at the steps, you can just lose yourself in the dancing.

You could pick up this Zumba set at Walmart.ca for $99.99. Canadian Tire also sells this DVD set in store for $99.99. Sears.ca carried this Zumba set for $99.99 also, but it is currently out of stock. Looks like Amazon is setting the bar for the best price on this set.

Looking at the reviews, many people are talking about this set. Over at Amazon Canada, 116 people have reviewed this set and it carries a hefty four out of five stars. After scanning the reviews, most people seem very happy with the workouts. Zumba has had a big following for a while and the reviews seem to reflect that trend. The main issue anyone notes that the packaging is a little on the flimsy side. I noticed that this particular set currently sits at a number fourteen slot in the exercise video category. In the number one exercise video slot is a similar Zumba set with less included DVDs.

Swimsuit season is coming up and I have been unmotivated to stick to my workout routine. I think this Zumba set might be just what I need to jumpstart a little fun into my workout. Grab yours set now Bargainmoosers! We have not seen much in the Zumba line go on sale in over a year according to a quick search of our site.

Amazon Canada: Get House: The Complete Series On DVD | Was $230 Now $75 *BUMP*

Posted by on May 1, 2015 at 10:22 AM

Amazon Canada: Get House: The Complete Series On DVD | Was $230 Now $75 *BUMP*

*We are bumping this post about Amazon’s house, which is now $5 cheaper than it was when we blogged it before and it sold out. Get it while you can Moosers!*

Good afternoon, my fellow Bargainmoosers! Today’s deal on Amazon allows you to get House: The Complete Series on DVD for $74.99 (was $229.99). You’ll also qualify for free shipping! This critically acclaimed series stars Hugh Laurie, and if you’ve never seen it before, you should at least check out an episode of it online before you decide to get this DVD box set. Personally, I loved the series – it was must-see-TV at its finest.

This DVD set is huge. It comes with all 8 seasons of House, which should definitely keep you entertained for quite a while! Whether you love or hate the brooding and sarcastic character of Dr. Gregory House, it’s a show that’s addicting to watch (especially when you have every season on DVD).

I first watched House in the late 2000’s (my mother was a big fan of the show), and from there I was hooked. I’d sit down with my mom every week and watch the latest misadventures of Dr. House, and I can honestly say that it was a lot of fun. It was also a nice break from my hectic work schedule at the time! I was freelancing and spending countless hours in my office, so watching House was a great way to break that monotony.

House: The Complete Series on DVD currently rings in at $159 at WalMart.

If you’re looking for a new TV series to check out, then you should consider getting House: The Complete Series on DVD. Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Amazon Canada: Sons of Anarchy Was $200 | Now $140 & Free Shipping

Aching for a Jax fix? With my favourite show completely over (Sons of Anarchy) and my other favourite show done for the season (Shameless), I need something to tide me over for a while. I could really get into the complete series of Sons of Anarchy and Amazon has a great deal for me. Get Sons of Anarchy: The Complete Series giftset for only $139.99, with a regular price of $199.98. Because it is over $25, free shipping comes along with it.

This giftset would also make a great Father’s Day gift for a lover of the show or for someone who has never seen the show and definitely should. I have to say, I was very disappointed in how it all ended, although I am in the minority with that statement.

I could not really find any details anywhere about what exactly this set contains. I do see that it has 23 discs on DVD with seasons 1 – 7 of the show. On top of that it looks like it has a very cool wood box to keep this collection. Then it has what looks like a replica of the gang’s table with the Sons etched design. On top of that, there is a photobook, which will help you relive your days with Sam Crow.

Reading the reviews on Amazon.com, they say that a real fan will absolutely love and need this set. There are only two reviews on Amazon.ca, but both give it a 5-star rating, citing that its a great set to have.

This is definitely the cheapest you will find set, if you even find it elsewhere. Best Buy was selling it for $184.99, but it is completely sold out. If you wanted just the discs, each season sells for about $25 – $35 a season, bringing your total to a minimum of $175, without all the extras.

Today Only! Sex And The City Complete DVD Set Was $160 | Now $90 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada

Posted by on April 15, 2015 at 11:09 AM

Today Only! Sex And The City Complete DVD Set Was $160 | Now $90 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada

Watch all of your favourite episodes of Sex and the City again with this fantastic combo pack from Amazon Canada. Right now, you can purchase the complete box set that was $159.99, for only $89.99. That saves you 58% on the list price plus qualifies for free super saver shipping.

Sex and the City is a fantastic show that focuses on love, sex and friendship. Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte are four bachelorette friends living in New York City. The show follows all four of them through hookups, marriage and divorce as they try to navigate the complex web that is life in your twenties and thirties in a fast-paced city. Fashion forward Carrie leads the show. She weekly inspired us with her columns about sex and relationships as she tries everything she can think to balance modern love in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Carrie constantly consults her three closest friends, who also are also running into hilarious snags with their love lives. This shows is full of laughs, memorable quotes and lots of fantastic fashion to ogle.

This is a good series to unwind with at the end of the day with a glass of wine. I was always rehashing this show with my friends the next day after a new episode when it was new show. The series has a huge following still. If you ever visit New York City, you can take tours that show you all the places the show was filmed.

This set includes all six seasons on DVD. Several reviewers are reporting that this set includes both Sex And The City movies, although I cannot find any details that specify that from Amazon and confirm that it includes the movies. The first movie was decent, but you are not missing much if you missed the second movie in my opinion. The series was where these characters shined. Ratings on this DVD set are very high with a four and a half star rating with over 60 reviews. According to Amazon Canada, this series is ranked number three in the category television comedy on DVD. There is a lot of competition in that category! A few reviewers had trouble with the packaging being tough. I would open this carefully the first time to avoid damaging the discs.

Checking around the web, this set is starting to get harder to find than it was a few years back. Costco Canada is the closest to Amazon Canada’s deal, selling this Sex and the City box set for $89.99. This set sells @ Chapters for $159.99. A similar set was available @ Best Buy Canada for $149.99 but is now out of stock.

Grab this set now, this is a special one day deal. I am going to grab a copy for myself, and plan a night for my friends when it arrives to watch the first episode.

Amazon Canada: 73% Off Game of Thrones Season 1 DVD – Now $20.49

Posted by on April 8, 2015 at 8:37 AM

Amazon Canada: 73% Off Game of Thrones Season 1 DVD   Now $20.49

Ahhh, I can hardly contain my excitement! The Game of Thrones season 1 DVD is 73% off at Amazon right now and can be yours for just $20.49!

I just finished watching season 4 and boy oh boy, if you haven’t watched Game of Thrones yet, then this is a fabulous opportunity. I was a little iffy about giving this TV show a try because I seem to remember watching a scene that looked to have been very poorly made but after marathoning through all four season, I can safely say that this definitely isn’t the case.

All of the Game of Thrones seasons are very well made and the great part about this TV series is that it will have you at the edge of your seat the entire time. So many times, my hubby and I simply sat in shock as events in the series unfolded that we never thought would ever happen because things like that just don’t happen on TV!

But of course, George R. R. Martin, the author of this crazy book series, is widely renown for his plot twists and turns, though that’s what makes watching them even funner. An article I read once concerning one of the most shocking scenes in the series (in season 2, mind you), pointed out that watchers of the series are much more vulnerable than book readers because of the immense foreshadowing in the books. In the series, there is hardly any foreshadowing. One second, you’re cheering for the characters and the scenes and the next, you’re in complete shock and wondering what the heck just happened.

What’s cool about the DVD is that it also comes with bonus footage like:

  • The making of Game of Thrones
  • An explanation behind the creation of the Dothraki language
  • Insight into The Night’s Watch
  • Audio commentary from the cast & crew
  • 15 character profiles

Shipping is only free on orders over $25, so you would need to add a filler item. You can get the other seasons on DVD for:

Get it quick though because the fifth season of Game of Thrones is airing April 13th!

Breaking Bad: The Complete Series Was $161 | Now $70 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada

Posted by on April 6, 2015 at 8:49 AM

Breaking Bad: The Complete Series Was $161 | Now $70 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada

If you are a fan of Breaking Bad, need to get your fix and Better Call Saul just isn’t getting you that high, you could get this hot deal from Amazon today. Get the complete series of Breaking Bad today for only $69.99, with a regular price of $160.99. Because the set is over $25, it will also ship for free.

This is the DVD set and has about 3000 minutes of terrifying goodness. If you were sick or had to stay up for over two straight days, you could watch this entire set in those 50 hours.

If you haven’t seen Breaking Bad, you really are missing out on one of television’s greatest series. The show has its emotional moments and also its gruesome. There were times I had to look away and many times I could not look away. The adventures of Walter White and his gang make for some amazing TV!

Just to show you that this is the best price around, check it out at Walmart, where it sells for $107.97, although it does have a bonus bottle opener. I don’t think I’d pay $37 for a bottle opener. I didn’t see this set anywhere else on DVD, but know that the blu-ray set is about 2.5 times the price of this set at Amazon.

If you are more of a collector, Amazon also has a sweet deal at 63% off today on the Breaking Bad: The Complete Series Limited Edition 2014 Barrel. It regularly sells for $299.99 and is now on sale for $109.99. It has been on sale before, but not for this low of a price. Walmart sells it for $210.97. Otherwise, I didn’t see this set elsewhere either.

I’d love to pick up this set just to watch the two-hour documentary that is included.

You can take a read of the reviews yourself, but as you’ll see, the general consensus is that everyone loves Breaking Bad and loves the collector’s set as well.

This might make a fantastic Father’s Day gift!

The Office: Complete Series On DVD Was $230 Now $63.49 @ Amazon Canada! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 21, 2015 at 9:14 AM

The Office: Complete Series On DVD Was $230 Now $63.49 @ Amazon Canada! (EXPIRED)

*** BUMP – there’s been a further price drop on this item at Amazon. When we first published this post, it was $89.99. It’s now dropped to $63.49! ***

That’s what she said. Today’s deal at Amazon is for the complete series of The Office on DVD – normally selling for $229.99, you can now purchase this set for $89.99 only $63.49. You’ll also get free shipping with your order!

The Office: The Complete Series on DVD is currently on sale for $172.99 at Best Buy and Future Shop. It’s also $165 @ Walmart.ca.

Oh, how I loved The Office – its dry humour that gave us a glimpse into a, often-mismanaged Scranton, Pennsylvania paper company known as Dunder Mifflin was a ground-breaking show for its time. It intrigued me when I first watched it back in the mid-2000s, since I didn’t hear the obligatory laugh-track in between every joke on the show.

Remember when TV shows had to remind us when we were supposed to laugh? After watching The Office, it kind of ruined many shows with laugh-tracks for me (at least the newer ones – I will always love Seinfeld and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air).

Either way, I really enjoyed watching The Office. It was a thoroughly enjoyable series with memorable characters such as Dwight, Andy, and of course, Michael Scott (played by Steve Carrell). One of my favourite lines in the series is when Michael Scott (the manager of the Dunder Mifflin office in Scranton, PA) is trying to motivate his employees, and has the following inspirational line written down on chart paper: You miss 100% of the shots that you don’t take. -Wayne Gretzky -Michael Scott. 

The last few seasons aren’t as creative or hilarious as the earlier seasons, but they’re still fun to watch. Mindy Kaling of The Mindy Project also rose to prominence during her time on The Office.

Get this great DVD set before it’s sold out! Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

VHS to DVD Conversion Kit Was $70 Now Only $14 & Free Shipping @ nCrowd.ca!

Posted by on March 14, 2015 at 10:02 AM

VHS to DVD Conversion Kit Was $70 Now Only $14 & Free Shipping @ nCrowd.ca!

Do you have any old home movies on VHS gathering dust in a cupboard somewhere? I think this could be the case for quite a few Moosers, if you’re anything like me. If so, you might have considered getting those VHS movies converted to DVD or digital files, so that you can watch them now and in the future. I’ve found a deal that will help you on that quest – it’s an offer on a VHS to DVD conversion kit. Usually this type of kit is around $70 to buy, but you can actually get this one for only $14 with free shipping @ nCrowd.ca!

When you click through on the above link, you will see that the price on the VHS to DVD kit is currently $19. However, there are a number of nCrowd coupon codes here which you might want to use with this order, the best of which is free5 for a $5 discount. This brings the final price down to only $14 with free shipping which is a really nice deal.

Before I started this post, I actually saw that this was a popular offer here on Tuango, where the kit was going for $22 PLUS shipping. However, when I started price comparing and discovered the above offer from nCrowd was even cheaper… and then found the additional $5 coupon code, I thought that I really must share this with you guys!

In the nCrowd deal, you get the following items:

  • Video adapter
  • CD-ROM & software
  • USB cable
  • User manual

From the looks of it, you will need to have an old-style VCR on which to actually play the tapes, during the conversion process. If you only have the tapes and not the actual VCR, then you’d need to maybe find out if any friends or family have a VCR which you could use this with.

For me, I’ve got a VHS tape here which is around 30 years old. It contains some old, grainy footage of me when I was around 4 years old, and my little sister, playing in our yard. It’s the only tape I have of myself when I was young. I haven’t watched it in a few years because we don’t actually have a VCR any more! I really, really must get it converted to have it for the future. Do you have any tapes you need to convert?

Boy Meets World Series Collection On DVD Was $100 | Now $27.49 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (Expired)

Boy Meets World Series Collection On DVD Was $100 | Now $27.49 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (Expired)

Check out the complete series of Boy Meets World on DVD. You get all seven seasons of this hilarious and cheesy show. This series was $100 but is now only $27.49. It qualifies for Amazon’s free shipping with a minimum purchase of $25.

Amazon is stocking us up with some of my favourite sitcom shows from the 90s this week. Yesterday Margarita blogged about Sabrina The Teenage Witch being on sale. It was not long ago that Anna posted about Saved By The Bell being on sale. It is time to dig out a flannel shirt and some Doc Martens for a 90s series marathon. I think we only need a good quality does of Sister Sister and Home Improvement to complete a 90s sitcom marathon.

I really loved this series. It was another one of those guilty pleasure shows, and I would watch the syndicated reruns repeatedly. I wanted to be Topanga once she grew out of the earth mother stage and became a little cooler. I cheered on Cory and Sean as they goofed around and learned a lesson or three in Mr. Feeny’s classroom. I loved the cheesy jokes, the love story between Topanga and Cory and the rebellious friend Sean with just a little bit of an edge. Boy Meets World Is a classic nineties sitcom with the right balance of cheese, lessons to be learned and loveable characters. The seven seasons of this show takes us from middle school all the way through college with our favourite characters as we cheer them on to make good choices and navigate growing up.

Did you wonder what happened to these characters after college? Disney recently created a spinoff series, Girl Meets World. Once you have finished all of the classic episodes in this box, the new series is worth checking out. Cory and Topanga are married now with a quirky daughter and an edgy friend. Girl Meets World does hold true to the essence of the original show. The new show has plenty of cameos and nods to the original series. Check out a little more about the buzz surrounding both the old and the new shows in this article from Entertainment Weekly. You can re-watch the original series with your partner or kids, and then have a few extra laughs at the new series.

Walmart has this series for the low price of $70. This series is also on sale right now at Chapters for $70. You could buy seasons one through five only at Staples for $17.81 a piece, but you would still be missing two seasons and would pay $89.50. I noticed Best Buy and Future Shop both retailed the complete series at around $75 but, neither had it in stock.

You do not have to take my word for it. There is plenty of love for this series on Amazon.

It definitely brought back my childhood. I used to love this show and when I saw that amazon had it on sale I knew that I had to buy it. And still to this day, this show does not disappoint!

Grab it at Amazon while it is a steal. My husband was even eying this deal over my shoulder as I typed this out. I do not think the stock will last long.

To get you ready, here is a great funny clip from the show.

Bargainmoosers, what is your favourite nineties sitcom?

Amazon Canada: $97 Off Sabrina The Teenage Witch Complete Series Box Set – Now $62 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada: $97 Off Sabrina The Teenage Witch Complete Series Box Set   Now $62 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Moosers, don’t you just miss Salem the Cat? I sure do! If you’re in the mood to re-watch the best TV series of all time (okay, I’m slightly exaggerating on that one), then grab the Sabrina the Teenage Witch Complete Series box set while you still can because it’s currently on sale for $62.49 at Amazon. It was originally priced as high as $159.98, which puts it at a 61% discount. Shipping is also free.

A TV series that first aired in 1996, Sabrina the Teenage Witch is an iconic series of the 90’s starring Melissa Joan Hart, Caroline Rhea, Beth Broderick and many other great actors. Here’s what someone had to say about this series:

This show is a classic. Watched it in the 90’s and ordered it for my daughter, she loves it! Highly recommend for good family fun.

The picture quality seems to be somewhat of a hit or miss with reviewers with some praising it as being clear and others stating the following:

The picture quality however is very grainy and is sometimes so bad it’s kind of distracting. The picture quality is the worst I’v ever seen on a dvd.

But I think it’s important to remember that this show is nearly twenty years old and so some graininess is definitely to be expected!

Browsing around Amazon’s TV show section, I also spotted a deal on the Breaking Bad complete series limited edition 2014 barrel. Originally priced at $299.99, it’s now 38% off and can be yours for just $184.99. During Boxing Day, this box set fell in price to just $120, but since there is no guarantee that it will go back to that price any time soon, I thought I would let you Moosers know of the current price drop.

On top of including all of the seasons, it also comes with a 2-hour documentary, a commemorative challenge coin, a Los Pollos Hermano apron and a “Better Call Saul” matchbook 4GB flash drive. Keep in mind that with regards to the flash drive, it comes with a coupon code to use online to unlock special content but although it’s unavailable to Canada, here’s a great tip from a reviewer to view it anyways:

Using a proxy to disguise my location allowed me to enter the code and see the site. There is a photo gallery of “Better Call Saul” & Breaking Bad props and a 4 minute video showing day one of filming at a skateboard park.

Saved by the Bell: The Complete Collection DVD, Was $62 Now $27.49 & Free Shipping @ Amazon! (EXPIRED)

Saved by the Bell: The Complete Collection DVD, Was $62 Now $27.49 & Free Shipping @ Amazon! (EXPIRED)

For today only, Amazon.ca has a great price on a great little piece of nostalgia – the complete DVD collection of Saved by the Bell! Originally priced at $61.99, you can get this classic TV show for only $27.49 with free super saver shipping.

In the above DVD deal, you are getting all four seasons of this show which actually started airing in 1989. Way back in April 2014, this DVD set had dropped to $24.99 for a couple of days, but I haven’t see it that low since then. And as for a price comparison just now, the very same DVD boxset is $45 @ Staples, $46 @ Chapters, $50 @ Walmart. The Amazon price today is really great.

I am sure you are all familiar with the show, but just in case you are not, here’s a quick blurb:

A TV show centered on six students and their years at Bayside High School in Palisades, California.

I was surprised to see that this show only gets a score of 7.0/10 on IMDB, I thought it would have gotten higher ratings.

I LOVED THIS SHOW!!! I was only aged 8 at the point when the show first started, but I don’t recall watching it at that early age. However, it must have been the re-runs that hooked me, and created my first ever teenage crush… on Zack Morris, of course. Look at him now – still hot! Since Saved by the Bell, he’s been in a lot of other TV shows which you will recognise such as CSI and Weeds. It looks like he never gets major roles though; they’re usually single-episode, bit parts.

As for the other characters, actors and actresses, I recently spotted “Kelly Kapowski” (Tiffani Thiessen) with a fairly major role in the TV show White Collar. I’ve seen the first five seasons of this show and I am waiting for the next season to be made available on Netflix. And you know what? She’s hardly changed at all – you can easily recognise her as Kelly!

Amazon Canada: Are You Being Served? The Complete Collection On DVD | Was $125 Now $45

(BUMP: The price on this Boxset went back up to full price, but it’s down again, back at a lower price!)

Good morning, my fellow Bargainmoosers! Amazon has  is continuing their savings-filled march to Black Friday this deal for Are You Being Served? The Complete Collection on DVD. It normally sells on Amazon for $124.98, but you can now buy it for $45.99 $44.99! You’ll also qualify for free shipping when you purchase this huge box set! This deal is only valid today, so get it while you still have a chance.

For those who aren’t aware, Are You Being Served? was a popular comedy program that played on the British BBC network. Episodes of this comedy show were also played on YTV here in Canada (and I’m sure it was on some other channels as well, but I specifically remember finding it on YTV late at night when I was a child, and it continued to be played when I was a teen).

This is a cute set for fans of this hilarious British show. My best friend was born in England, and I still specifically remember his Grandma and Mom watching this series and having a great time while doing so. This Are You Being Served? The Complete Collection on DVD set would certainly please fans of the series, since it’s packed with tons of episodes spanning 14 DVDs. It could be a great gift for the holidays.

If you wanted to buy this Are You Being Served? The Complete Collection on DVD from WalMart Canada, it would cost you $94.21 (that’s more than double the price on Amazon today). I’ve included a brief review of this set from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

 I have been a huge fan of Are You Being Served for decades. This complete series is a necessary part of my DVD collection. The episodes need no comment, they are funny, entertaining, a great British show.

Here is a sweet little deal where you can pick up a couple of great classic TV series. Amazon is offering an extra $10 off when you purchase 3 select TV series on DVDs. Free shipping is available on orders over $25 and it’s likely your order can easily reach that total depending on the series you choose.

Snatch up some of your favourite TV series while they are hot, folks. I can see some of these DVD sets making great Valentine’s Day presents. The selection of these DVDs seems to be a mix of classic TVv shows and more modern sci-fi, and favourite TV series from the last 20 years or so. The good news is there are some great series to be snatched up here and the prices are low to begin with, averaging between $8 to $10 per season.

Some of the more modern series available include:

  • Firefly
  • 24
  • Archer
  • Prison Break
  • White Color
  • Burn Notice
  • How I Met Your Mother
  • Futurama
  • The X Files
  • Buffy
  • Angel
  • Stargate SG-1
  • Lie To Me
  • American Dad
  • Malcom In The Middle
  • Planet of The Apes
  • Saving Grace
  • It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Also included in the list are some classic shows including:

  • Green Acres
  • Mash
  • Remington Steel
  • The Mary Tyler Moore Show

You can really see a clear divide between two different TV eras, looking at that list. The good news is you can mix and match to get a taste of both if you have a foot in each camp.

I have to admit I am partial to a couple on this list. My hubby and I worked our way through Buffy from beginning to end, while we were still dating. The series writing is written really well. Buffy is witty and has lots of action. It is hard not to cheer on a kick-butt chick, fighting zombies while trying to maintain some semblance of a life in high school in the 90s. I could see easily snagging Buffy again to watch from beginning to end. Once you get hooked you may be craving more and it is a great time to pick up the spinoff/crossover series Angel also.

There are many great quotable lines including one of my favorites:

If the apocalypse comes, beep me. – Buffy

If you are in the mood for a great comedy do not overlook How I Met Your Mother. Those syndicated reruns will not be playing forever folks! My favourite thing about this series is it really is a series that you can pick up in the middle and still enjoy episode by episode, with lots of laughs. If you watch this series from beginning to end, you will catch more of the complexity of the story the writers add between the laughs. At its core, this series is a comedy that is a great to unwind to at the end of a long day. It will not take long before you are cheering for Ted, Robin, Lily, Marshal and even Barney and wishing you had a spot at their table at the bar as they navigate life in their 20s and 30s.

If you see many series on the list you like, I would recommend creating more than one order. For every 3 series you purchase, you can receive $10 off. So if you want to score all 11 seasons of MASH for example, you may want to split it up into multiple orders to save more. Here’s an example, to show you what we mean:

Buy 3 Select TV Series on DVD & Get Extra $10 Off @ Amazon.ca

The first three seasons of MASH come to around $27. But as you can see above, it totals $16.97 AND you get free shipping as well, as the pre-discounted price was above $25. Sweet!

Bargainmoosers, what is one of your favourite series on this list?

It’s Bender Baby! (63% Off Today Only) Futurama The Complete Series DVD $75 @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Its Bender Baby! (63% Off Today Only) Futurama The Complete Series DVD $75 @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Futurama fans we are calling you. Today only, you can pick up the complete series of Futurama on DVD including all 8 seasons at 63% off. Originally priced at $124, you can now buy the whole series for only $75. Free shipping is included for this item on Amazon.

Futurama is a hilarious series set in a retro yet futuristic world. We follow Fry, a not-so-smart human who is frozen cryogenically in the year 2000 and finds himself awake in the year 2999. He gets a job as a cargo/pizza delivery boy with his only living relative and makes a group of misfit friends both human and alien alike. The show is created and written by Matt Groening and David Cohen of The Simpsons and has a similar sense of humour. Personally, I think it is a hilarious series and have spent many evenings enjoying an episode of Futurama over the years.  I find the series has the humour of The Simpsons or Family Guy combined with the futuristic space fun of The Jetsons plus they added in more aliens.

Futurama fans mean serious business. The series has had a tough haul from beginning to end as it moved around to multiple TV networks and even stopped production for about 4 years in the middle. Producers felt that comedy was too harsh and crass for prime time TV. Fans of the series felt differently. Fuelled by reruns, they created online campaigns to bring the series back. Somewhere I even have a T-shirt for saving Futurama, in my closet. Eventually the series did return to a different network with the entire original cast. Futurama has won numerous awards for being an excellent animated series including 6 Emmy wins and 14 Emmy nominations.

I would pick this one up on DVD and not bother waiting for the Blu-ray version myself. Since the series history is so disjointed, I suspect it will take them quite a while to reformat this into something decent for Blu-ray. Enjoy the episodes now instead.

I should note that I have seen several places around the web that the series was on sale for $70 just before the holidays. If you missed that sale however, $75 is still an amazing price for this entire series. Check out what the competitors are offering.

  • $117 @ Walmart – only sold as individual seasons, ranging from $10 to $25 each
  • $135 @ FutureShop.ca – Reserve for in store pick-up only
  • $140 @ Chapters Indigo
  • $169 @ Archambault.ca

As I mentioned before, fans of this series are full force in their love and loyalty for the characters. Several reviewers are mentioning packaging flaws on the DVDs. Here’s one happy reviewer overall.

A few minor packaging flaws but it’s nothing in comparison to the content of the series. I have been a fan of the series since it started and couldn’t wait to get a complete set. Love the Hypnotoad extra episode.

I would pick this one up now, folks. The series has only been available on DVD for about a year and I do not think we will see the price drop down again like this for a while.

Bargainmoosers, are there any TV shows you like enough to own the T-shirt?
