MARRIED WITH CHILDREN: SEASON 1 & 2 COMBO PACK ( MILL CREEK )
I hate most sitcoms, but I've always made an exception for MARRIED WITH CHILDREN.
I'm not fond of the first season. The cast was still fleshing-out their characters. However, I loved the show from season two until season seven or eight.
I wanted to purchase the second version of SONY's complete series set, but it's now out-of-print... There's NO fucking way I'm paying an absurd price for a used DVD.
MILL CREEK has released season one and two ( separately, and in a two season combo set ).
I purchased the two season combo set, and I am VERY happy with it.
It contains three single sided discs.
All the discs are housed in a standard size DVD case. The three discs all rest on one spindle. There's nothing wrong with the way the discs are packaged - so don't let anyone try and convince you otherwise.
There are no extras, and no booklet, or other inserts.
The original season sets by SONY were NOT cheap. Nor, were they ultra high quality.
After purchasing the MILL CREEK version, you'll still have money in your pocket - you can use it for frivolous things, like food, clothing, gas...
As of February 16, 2014, the following retailers are selling this set for...
HAMILTON BOOK.COM - $9.95
WALMART - Haven't found it in any of my local stores
TARGET - One of my local stores was selling it for $7.99 ( sale price? )
AMAZON.COM - $10.37... Is this the best they can do?
MOVIESTOP.COM - $9.99... Appears to be sold out... The following quote is from their MARRIED WITH CHILDREN SEASON 1 & 2 COMBO PACK page, "Item is currently on backorder. This item typically ships in 2-4 weeks"... Up to a month to restock a mass produced DVD?... Are you kidding me?
FYE.COM - $12.98... Almost everything they sell is OVERPRICED!
CD UNIVERSE - $12.99
DVD EMPIRE - I can't find it listed on their website.
OLDIES.COM - Stay as far away from these folks as possible!
DEEP DISCOUNT - $10.04... That's NOT a "deep discount"... WALMART, TARGET, HAMILTON BOOK, and other retailers are selling it cheaper.
