    Definitely the "proper" packaging in the Amazon sale - at £39.99 its a bargain - I've already got seasons 1-6 and was waiting for season 7 to drop to a bargain price.
    The amaray editions were originally advertised as being available from Boxing Day last year, and have now gone back to 1st June - sounds like an estimated date to me, rather than a definite one.

    Went into Woolworths in Macclesfield yesterday, they have a 3 for £25 offer - I noticed you could pick up all 4 series of Blackadder and both series of Fawlty Towers for £50 - not in special boxes though.

    No difference in content - I believe - but it's the presentation that sucks IMHO! A separate amaray for one or two disks is crap - I presume you'll be looking at 3 or 4 amarays per season in a holder box? For those that are not bothered about presentation this is the ideal opportunity to get these releases on the cheap.

    For the majority of us though that have already got several seasons in the "decent" boxset form, the thought of going amaray - ugg!! - is a no-no - the collection just wouldn't look right!

    I've managed to collect most of my current 6 seasons quite cheap. The 1st one was the infamous Dixons Xmas special of 2000 - a delicious £19.95 - I've had several via Ipoints which, in connection with the Casino offers, they've cost me zilch. I think this (the 7th season) and the 6th Season are the only one's I've actually shelled out hard-earned for - both 40 notes which is good value in my book!

    Darn it Dave, did you have to tell us about that one so far from payday..?
    Too good to pass up though!
    Fair play to Amazon, ordered late 16th, Parcelforce delivered 19th.
    :clap:
