Amazon Blu-ray Deals of the Week: The Walking Dead and Sons of Anarchy

Posted August 26, 2012 10:19 AM by Josh Katz

Amazon Gold BoxIn anticipation of the upcoming The Walking Dead: The Complete Second Season and Sons of Anarchy: Season Four Blu-ray releases, Amazon's Blu-ray Deals of the Week affect both of Anchor Bay's The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season packages as well as Twentieth Century Fox's Sons of Anarchy season sets.

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.

Amazon's Deal of the Week has discounted prices for Anchor Bay's two Season One Blu-ray iterations; they include:
Both editions feature a plethora of behind-the-scenes featurettes and cast interviews; the three-disc set retains everything on the two-disc package and includes audio commentaries on each Season One episode, extensive making-of documentaries, and a black-and-white version of the series' critically acclaimed pilot episode.

The two-disc collection is $19.49, or 61% off its SRP of $49.99, while the three-disc version is $24.99, or 58% off its SRP of $59.99.

The Sons of Anarchy deals, on the other hand, impact: These three inaugural seasons of showrunner Kurt Sutter's hit FX crime drama loosely filter the criminal activities of the title California motorcycle club through the template set by William Shakespeare's play Hamlet.

Like Hamlet, Sons of Anarchy focuses on a curdled stepfather/son relationship, as Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam, Children of Men), the Sons' vice president, finds himself increasingly suspicious of club President Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman, Drive), the man who married Jax's mother (Katey Sagal, Futurama) and took control of the Sons in the wake of Jax's father's death.

Fox's three-disc sets include a wide assortment of bonus supplements, such as behind-the-scenes documentaries, interviews with cast and crew members, deleted scenes, and audio commentaries on selected episodes.

Amazon is offering the Sons of Anarchy packages for $25.99 each, or 63% off their SRPs of $69.99 (in Season One's case, 57% off its SRP of $59.99).

These deals expire at 12 AM PST/3 AM EST next Sunday, September 2nd.

None of these prices represent historic lows. Not a great deal, but good enough if you can't wait

Really want the 3 disc special edition of the walking dead first season but that price really isn't quite good enough. Im going to keep waiting until it drops to at least $20, even if it takes until black Friday.

Anyone else get the Price Match alert at 3am this morning that the special edition of TWD Season 1 was going for $19.49. I woke up so excited after reading that, only to see that it was back to $24.99 at 7am when I woke up.

@truckdaddy
That's what I get for not staying up all night like I used to hahaha. Ah well, 5 bucks more for a show that all of my friends told me was amazing shouldn't hurt me. I won the second season in a contest, so $25 for both seasons arriving at my house on the same day is pretty good (for me).

Wish I had more fundage... if the deals were sick I would put them on credit but these are only 60% off. I'm sure it will come around again. Hopefully I'll see them again Black Friday.

Both shows are very worthwhile. Walking Dead isn't as much of a priority as I've read the graphic novels, but the show is very well produced and acted. I've just seen these stories 5 years ago so they don't have the same shock value for me.

Sons of Anarchy is wonderful, Sometimes a bit brutal but very much worth watching and if you are like me, owning. The show has many actors from some of my all time favorite TV series. X-Files, Deadwood, The Shield come to mind. (this isn't by chance). Like the Shield, there are often sequences of events that are shocking, you have no idea if a major character will live through every episode. Lots of turns, twists and incredible movie actors that make the show very exciting to watch.

The Hamlet parables are endless, even the characters names start with the same letter as the names in the original Shakespeare.
