Amazon's Blu-ray Deal of the Week affects Starz/Anchor Bay's The Walking Dead: Seasons 1-3 bundle. Through February 8th, Amazon is offering this set for a 64% discount from its respective MSRP.
Based on Robert Kirkman's long-running comic series and developed for television by Academy Award-nominee Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption), The Walking Dead examines a United States in the wake of a catastrophic biological pandemic, one that turns the dead into mindless, flesh-craving zombies.
The show puts a particular focus on Georgia policeman Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln, Love Actually) who tries to protect a diverse band of survivors from the terrors of this new America, though he finds his mission complicated not just by the zombie hordes, but also by unstable tensions between the living.
The three-season package features a plethora of behind-the-scenes featurettes and cast interviews, audio commentaries on selected episodes, and extensive making-of documentaries.
For this week, The Walking Dead: Seasons 1-3 is $71.99.
This deal expires at 12 AM PST/3 AM EST next Sunday, February 9th.
This comes out to 24.00 a season. Not much of a deal. The season 2 has been running at 19.99 for a while. The special edition 3-disk season 1 has been available at various times for 15.00 bucks. Nothing here to make me want to jump at this deal. I had high hopes when I saw the title, oh well.
Amazon should be ashamed of themselves. I bought season one and two for $9.99 each and purchased season three for $24.99 last year...and this was before the holiday shopping season. $71.99- what a joke!
