A shoddy, cynical and embarrassing box set.
on 29 November 2013
As an avid follower of SOA I was delighted the just released Season 1 to 5 box set was featured on Amazon's Black Friday deals, and I quickly snapped one up.
I was appalled and dismayed when on opening the (cheap, flimsy) outer box, it contained one box containing seasons 1 to 4 (12 disc set), and a separate box containing season 5 (3 disc set).
A quick check also concluded it would be far cheaper to purchase the two sets separately, saving amost 30 pounds on the selling price of the 1 to 5 box set. To add insult to injury, the main season 1 to 4 (12 discs) were packaged in only what can be described as a flimsy carousel style holder that isn't even affixed to the box itself and fell out when opened.
Perhaps I was expecting a little too much in expecting that some effort could have gone into presenting what should be a premium, blu-ray box set and making it that little bit special, but alas wasn't to be.
I will be returning it for a refund and I think that whoever approved this for sale should be ashamed.
