Amazon Lightning Deal - Dollhouse Season 1 Blu-ray for $26.99. This is at 6 AM PDT for only 4 hours or until they sell out.

The deal is "Dollhouse: Season One" on Blu-ray for $26.99
Bummer, it is just a Blue Ray discounted item (I have sworn to never buy Blue Ray, I think it is the 8 track tapes of the video format).
"Dollhouse: Season One" on Blu-ray
List Price: $69.99
Amazon's Price: $37.49
Gold Box Discount: - $10.50
Gold Box Price: $26.99 (61% off)

So, really - it's $10 off the 'regular' Amazon.com price, not $48 off.

I've amended the title to show that it's Dollhouse.
Embers, I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who has sworn to stay away from Blu-Ray.
Not following the Blu-Ray trend either - i'll buy my first BR the day they stop producing DVDs, and I can't see that being any time soon.
Always at the end of the month when I have no money.

Balls.
Bluray is so much better than dvd when done properly and viewed on an HDTV. The problem with thinking of it as the 8 track of video is that it's already outsold 8 track players and it's actually selling faster than dvd at this point in its life. So it's going to be around for a long while. I would not be surprised if bluray/dvd combo packs become the norm and single dvds go away in the next 5 years.
I already bought this or I would've gotten it. Now they just need to do the same thing with Season 2 and I'd be happy.
I forget, do they still have trouble with that blu-ray/DVD combo disc? I remember that HD-DVD at least figured out how to do that before they went belly up. These current packs where they have blu-ray, DVD, special features (also maybe on DVD?) and a digital file (on its own disc for whatever reason) sort of stupidly unwieldy/wasteful even if they're still smaller than a DVD packaging.

I just wish that they'd really go all out in terms of special features now since there's no longer any need to worry about compression as much. Like Futurama would have commentary on every episode of their show on normal DVD, or Edgar Wright movies/TV shows sometimes have up to five.
