Help Me Decide Between two Box Sets!

Postby hoytereden » Tue Dec 09, 2008 12:01 am

Such a dilemma, I can only get one! Twilight Zone-The Definitive Collection or Deadwood-The Complete Series. On one hand the TZ set is a great price at about $150 and I know what i'm in for but, on the other hand, I love Westerns but I've never seen Deadwood so.....?

(I'm leaning towards TZ since 50% off might not happen again anytime soon and I recently got burned by my own match when I hesitated on the X-Files box set at that great $124 price and it shot back up to $275. OUCH! My own fault!)

Wadda ya think? Thanks!

If you can get TZ for a good price, go for that. I love Deadwood but wouldn't think in a million years to recommend the complete series as a blind buy.

Hey hoy,

Another vote for TZ. I got it and never regretted it. It's one of the crown jewels of my collection. Good price, too. Go for it.

As much as DEADWOOD is a show that demands to be checked out, TWILIGHT ZONE is a classic that trumps it hands down without any hesitation. You get more stars, more budding young directors, and a show that never gets old which can watch in any order. I don't think there is even a contest here.

Wow, two very fine shows. However, I agree with most of the folks here... The Twilight Zone is probably the way to go. Plus, Deadwood will undoubtedly be getting a Blu-ray release within the next year or two... probably better to wait for that, anyway, if you're planning to be BD-enabled at some point.

JERRY: This is like that Twilight Zone where the guy wakes up and he's the same but everyone else is different.
KRAMER: Which one?
JERRY: They were all like that.

While we're at it, why doesn't he not pick up Unforgiven in favour of getting Krull?

This! It was given me to know!

Giant boomerang ninja stars are cool.

Man, if Columbia weren't goddamn retarded and actually moved this out a year or two from Return of the Jedi, we'd have a blockbuster classic of at least Monster Squad proportions... maybe even Willow or Legend!

EDIT: This too it was given me to know:

Krull probably actually made more cash than Legend...

I dunno man, Ridley saved a bundle on the effects budget by using fishing line and christmas tree lights to portray the enchanted creatures of the forest.
