Just spotted that stng season 3 is now on pre order here on Amazon but at the ridiculous price of £77.20 what's going on here seasons 1 and 2 were cheaper than this. Unless they drop the price to a reasonable level just before release.
I was perfectly happy with c. £50. Given they haven't spelled the name of the show correctly ("Star Tre" at the time of writing) and that a lot of sites still aren't listing I'll assume £77 is provisional...even as an opener though it is ridiculous.
Hopefully the price is just a place holder because £77 is a slap in the face when the other seasons can be picked up for £40-£50. What's even worse is that they're releasing a separate "Best of Both Worlds" disc which is supposed to have its own exclusive extras.
I have just seen the price £77 !!! Are they mad !! Even c. £50 is quite expensive these days for a season box set on Blu-Ray but I was still quite happy to pay it, but £77 is extortionate and an insult. Amazon needs to knock £25 off this price now! If it stays at this price I certainly won't be pre-ordering it. Enterprise season 1 is also coming out in April and this is currently about £52. The original series, TNG seasons 1 & 2 were all about £50 when they first came out, so why the sudden and unexplained price increase ? Amazon - explain yourself !
I don't mind them releasing a "Best of Both Worlds" disc seeing as it's the highest rated episode of TNG and having to swap discs from 2 different season sets would just be a pain. I do have a problem with them putting exclusive extras on it though when they should also be on the season sets. I can't see them doing it with any other two part episodes except for maybe "All Good Things" but both parts of that will be on the season 7 set.
Yeah im more than happy to pay £50 for each of them, but £77 wtf? That will most likely come down soon but I like to pre order straight away and then forget about it and I get a nice surprise when it comes through the door
That BOBW disc, is that going to be the full length TV movie version? If so I'm definitely getting it! When BOBW was released as a TV movie they cut out a few seconds at the beginning of part 2 where Geordie says "discharge in 10 seconds" it really slows down the action and suspense after riker says "fire!" at the end of part 1, so when it was on telly as soon as Riker says "fire" it fires straight away, it was released as feature length on telly and VHS like this and im so glad they are doing it on blu ray too. But anyway, you probably know that anyway :) but thats why no other 2 parter will be on its own disc as they were never made like that
Actually Stephen all of the 2 parters have feature length versions but the only 2 that were initially filmed that way were Encounter at Farpoint and All Good Things which has more footage in the feature length version than the 2 part version
£77 is criminal and blatent extorsion from Amazon to cash in on season 3's cult status. For the first time ever I'm pre ordering this from Sainsbury's as it's only £51 there. Really Amazon, shame on you and shame on the capitalist PIG who decided a £77 price tag.

I was surprised that Amazon wants to charge over £77 for season 3 of TNG. I wanted to pr-order this from Amazon, but not at any price! I have therefore pre-ordered this from Sainsburys at a more reasonable £50!
