    I got an email from sainsbury's as The Complete Series set is up for pre-order and comes out on the 25/11/2013. I already have Season 1-4 on BD so I'm only interested in S5 but it looks as if they've split it over 2 releases The 'Complete' Season 5 and The Final Season. Anyone know whether there are plans to release a proper complete Season 5?

    I don't think they are at least not yet anyway as they've called the 'second' part of Season 5 "The Final Season" instead of something like Season 5.2.

    The two complete season sets (the normal version and the Deluxe version) come out on the 25th of November but there's no listing for a complete Season 5.

    Yeah I'd seen that but I'm like you and got S1-4 already and was just waiting for a complete S5 but it doesn't seem like there's going to be one :(

    I think if they were going to bring it out and announced it then people would be less likely to buy the first part of S5 and it would hit sales.

    Sales have already been hit going by you not having bought it, I haven't and two people at work who haven't. I know it's not a representative sample but I doubt many people would have bought it. I think the studio realised this hench the attempt to 'pull the wool over...' by calling it 'The Complete Fifth Season'.

    Sounds about right and the studios love anything to milk a good thing

    I'm desperate to watch this so I've no option. This is the only series I'd pay above the odds. I've pre-ordered the 'Final Season' but I'm going to hold off getting S5 in the hope it's discounted between now and November.

    I don't have any of them on bluray yet so the complete set is a no-brainer for me as a Christmas present to myself and the wife.

    Gonna start saving for the deluxe version - started getting the DVD boxsets, but only the first two, so might switch to BR eventually. It's my favourite show, so I want to get the best set for it - next year that boxset is getting bought!

    Deffo buying this, I'm also kinda gutted about it, I came to this series very late on (three weeks ago) and I'm hooked!

    I've watched from the pilot upto current episodes and that made me subscribe to Netflix, roll on tomorrow morning for the latest episode.

    Wonder if it's worth waiting for it to get cheaper after release?

    Really tempted to get the complete box set - are there any exclusive extras to this set as opposed to the ones just on the single releases?
    I think this price will stay a while, though most shows that are on Netflix drop on price quickly I have noticed, this my be the exception to the rule

    I've been trying to find out if the barrel box set has extra content compared to the standard box set on Amazon.

    According to Amazon,the barrel box set has 16 discs with a run time of 2563 minutes
    ,while the standard box set has 13 discs with a run time of 2949 minutes.

    Confused!!!

    The normal set should have 15 discs, my guess is that Amazon have screwed up their listings again.

    The barrel set has an extra disc with an 2 hour special feature not on the normal box set
