The Prisoner Blu-Ray On Sale At Deep Discount
Deep Discount is running their semi-annual DVD sale right now, but it's not quite as good as it usually is. Instead of 20-15% off their usually already low prices, it's 40% off of the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price this winter. In some cases, that equation works out in the consumer's favor. But in most, it means you don't save as much as you used to. Still, with the site's free shipping, you can still find a number of good deals for your holiday spy shopping. Foremost among them is a special offer that appears to be available for a single day: you can save a whopping sixty percent on A&E's Blu-ray edition of The Prisoner: The Complete Series! That makes the entire series (and we're talking about the utterly brilliant Sixties original here, starring the great Patrick McGoohan, not the new version) in high-definition, including all of the fabulous extras available in the United States for the first time with this release, only $39.99 as opposed to a hundred bucks. Wow! If there's a spy fan on your shopping list this season, pick this up now! In fact, if there are any intelligent people who like great television on your list, pick this up. And, of course, get one for yourself. That's a hell of a deal. And, just to maintain a shred of dignity, I'd like to stress that I'm not shilling for Deep Discount, but for The Prisoner itself. This deal just happens to be the cheapest way to get it. The series is absolutely essential television, spy or otherwise.
