Amazon Blu-ray Deal of the Week: Earth Day and Star Trek - The Next Generation (Expired)

Posted April 21, 2013 08:48 AM by Josh Katz

Amazon Gold BoxAmazon's Blu-ray Gold Box Deals of the Week affect Untamed Americas, The National Parks: America's Best Idea, and seasons one and two of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Untamed Americas is National Geographic's miniseries on the wildest, most remote parts of the North American continent. Narrated by Josh Brolin (Gangster Squad), this program lets viewers stand "witness [to] the elegance, power, and speed of a world rarely captured...Scaling mountains from north to south, crossing harsh, dry deserts, trekking through forests and circling the coasts, Untamed America takes a fresh look at life, death, familiar creatures, and scientific revelations."

National Geographic presents the series in its broadcast aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and digitally mastered in 1080i. Each episode has a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track, and the two-disc set also contains a fifty-minute documentary on moose in America.

Through April 27th, Amazon is offering Untamed Americas for $19.99, or 50% off its SRP of $39.99.

In addition, PBS Home Entertainment's The National Parks: America's Best Idea is also on sale. This twelve-hour documentary, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Ken Burns (The Central Park Five, Prohibition), examines "the human history of five of the nation's most important and most heavily visited National Parks (Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Acadia, and Great Smoky Mountains) and the unforgettable Americans who made them possible. Set against some of the most beautiful landscapes on earth, each park's story is filled with incidents and characters as gripping and fascinating as U.S. history has to offer."

PBS presents the The National Parks: America's Best Idea mastered in 1080i, with all six episodes shown in their original aspect ratios of 1.78:1 and given 5.1 Dolby TrueHD audio tracks. In terms of special features, the Blu-ray collection features extensive behind-the-scenes documentaries, extended interviews, outtakes, and musical journeys through the parks included in Burns' film.

Amazon's Earth Day Deal of the Week has discounted The National Parks: America's Best Idea down to $51.49, or 60% off its SRP of $129.99.

Finally, Paramount Home Media Entertainment's Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season 1 and Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season 2 packages are on sale this week. One of the most iconic television dramas ever made, this science-fiction series focuses on the continuing adventures of the Starship Enterprise as its crew explores exciting - and often dangerous - world and galaxies.

Both multi-disc sets offer newly restored versions of the Season One and Season Two episodes; Paramount has mastered all of them in 1080p and presented them in their broadcast aspect ratio of 1.33:1 with 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio tracks. The Star Trek packages have many bonus materials as well, such as audio commentaries on selected episodes, archival mission logs, extended episodes, gag reels, and behind-the-scenes featurettes.

Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season 1 and 2 are $52.49 each, or 60% of their respective SRPs of $129.99.

Deals expire at 12 AM PST/3 AM EST next Sunday, April 28th.

Couple of things about S2: They went with a different effects house, where the results weren't quite as good. And I believe they changed film, resulting in more grain in some shots. Neither one of these is (IMO) a deal killer, and it still looks great. But not quite as good as S1, comparatively. Hopefully S3 is more on par with S1.

Season 2 is mine.

@moviefiend. $52 bucks is a great price for a Star Trek season. I don't think you'll see it any lower then this, so pick it up.

I have been waiting for ST:TNG season two to drop below 60.00. Ordered! Now I will wait for season three to drop below 60.00. Thanks Amazon.

I kind of want the TNG seasons, but I'm not sure I want season 1 for $53. People forget that season 1 and the first half of season 2 were pretty lousy. Wasn't until the episode where Riker goes in that exchange program that the series started to pick up.

I'll pick up a used one for $30 in a couple years. I've waited this long. Two more years won't make a difference, not with all the other awesome shows to see right now, like Game of Thrones and Continuum and Breaking Bad and Justified and Sons of Anarchy and Fringe and Touch and Revenge and The Following and Person of Interest and Revolution and etc., etc., etc.

Yeah, I'll wait until it's $39, or pick it up used. $39 seems to be my price point, got TOS and each season of Twilight Zone for 35-40 each.

Before I spend any more money on ST:TNG, I'm waiting to see what they do with a "Complete Series" set. I'm hoping for a nice singularly contained package of some sort that offers a reduction in occupied shelf real estate. So, for me it's not so much about how much per season... right now. That will only come into play once a "Complete Series" set is available.

Remember when dvd seasons were $100 on sale? I worked minimum wage for those as a teen.
