New Video Group's Red vs. Blue package includes ten full seasons of the popular comedy web series, which follows the goofy adventures of Red Team and Blue Team, two units inspired by the multiplayer mode in the popular Halo video game franchise.
The Gold Box deal presents the fourteen-disc bundle at a 67% markdown from its SRP of $179.95; the Blu-rays are remastered in 1080i and carry 5.1 Dolby Digital audio tracks alongside a generous assortment of supplementary features, such as audio commentaries on selected episodes, outtakes, and deleted scenes.
Through April 6th, Amazon is offering Red vs. Blue for $59.99.
In addition, Paramount Home Media Entertainment's Borgias set is also on sale. Created by The Crying Game and Interview with the Vampire director Neil Jordan, the series stars Jeremy Irons (Dead Ringers) as Rodrigo, the scheming head of the Borgia family who uses his taste for power and manipulation to become Pope Alexander VI in sixteenth century Italy.
This three-disc set presents the series in its broadcast aspect ratio of 1.78:1 with 5.1 Dolby TrueHD audio tracks and a number of sample episodes for other Showtime series, including Dexter, Gigolos, Californication, House of Lies, and Episodes.
The Borgias: The Complete First Season is $29.99, or 55% of its MSRP of $65.99.
Deals expire at 12 AM PST/3 AM EST next Sunday, April 7th.
I'll have to take your word for it. The grossly unhelpful, repetitive selection of screenshots used to corroborate/illustrate the review on this site makes rvb look beyond bad: uninteresting subject matter in every single frame, and video game graphics - I pretty much dismissed it when it came out, because of the screenshots and price.
The Borgias looks more promising, but 30.00 is still a bit pricey for a blind-buy of such a short season, for me.
$4 is a fantastic price on Hang 'Em High this week though.
