Awesome deal especially considering it is the BBC version.

I would but it is missing the 110 minute documentary on the making of plus the 10 minute behind the scenes for each episode. THOSE are what is stopping me from pulling the trigger. Very, very tempting though...

They're an unfortunate (maybe inexcusable) omission. That said, having seen them, they're interesting but a "watch once" affair, whereas the main program is remarkable enough to invite repeat viewings. I don't miss having those features. For $39, I think it's a fair trade-off.

Part of me, however, is wondering whether there will be a PE reissue with this material when "Earth" hits BD, hence the steep price drop at AMZ...

I'm sure the price will go down even further than this. I'll buy it on blu when it goes to $24.99.

Oh I believe it that the program on hd is stunning but the completist in me is voicing no. I would not be surprised if they re-issue it with the missing supplements.

Excellent price for an excellent series. If I didn't already have it, I'd definitely buy it on this deal.

I fail to see how this is "a joke" - the going price for this set was in the 50's as far as I knew.
