I might finally bite the bullet on MI/MI2.

Those 2 packs are all the same that Wal-Mart offered for Fathers day for 20.00. I'd be willing to bet that The Eye + Crank, Patriot Games + ????, National Lampoons Van Wilder & Waiting, and several more will be included in the sale as well. If so then be sure to check Wal-Mart as those same titles may show back up there again as well and may save you $5.

For those who wondered if Target is doing another one of those exclusive OFFICE sets with bonus featurette, they are (a 45-minute cast interview, along with an episode script) but it's for the SD-DVD set only, which is piss poor, if you ask me. As I recall, the powers that be at The Digital Bits got Target to commit to making their exclusives available on BD, as well, after last year's THE INCREDIBLE HULK fiasco, but alas, here we are, years into this new, increasingly popular format and we're still getting punked on extra value incentives...

meh, no big deal to me. The Best Buy Office sets have been better, like last year's paper crate. my god was that a fantastic bit of packaging! besides, the extras package on this Blu-ray is top notch as is.

I call bullshit; the Best Buy sets are nothing but trinket dumps. The Target sets actually feature additional content, which is far more compelling than junk to collect dust on your desk at work...

i call bullshit in return; this release has MORE than enough extras as it is. it's already a daunting task, due to the deleted scenes. i know this, just like i know the package is a bit on the thin/flimsy side when it comes to the paper used. some things just aren't necessary. a SCREENPLAY, that isn't just junk to collect dust? kindling, sure, but other than that, it's worthless.

i'd rather have the set packaged in a Dunder Mifflin paper box (forget the "trinkets"), than have a screenplay, and an INTERVIEW.

Really? A paper box over 45 minutes of additional insights from the cast and crew? You and I have very different added-value preferences, it would seem. Surely you would agree with me, however, that in this day and age, those of us who prefer the Target exclusive to the Best Buy one shouldn't be forced to go with the SD-DVD to get it, yes?

oh i'd readily agree w/ that. i don't buy SD-DVD anymore. ever. if a title i want doesn't hit Blu, i don't buy it. i do disagree w/ the premium pricing these sets have at stores like TGT or BB, though.

i have a funcash pile at CH building up, hoping they change it so you can buy blus. if not, hey, i get some DVDs to sell.

I'm with Filmmaker on this one. It's so lame that this add'l footage is only on the DVD set and not the blu-ray. Oh well. Target lost a sale on the set as far as I'm concerned.
