Football drama junkies, rejoice! If you haven’t already picked up all five seasons of the critically and popularly acclaimed Friday Night Lights on DVD (no Blu-ray yet, sorry), today’s your lucky day. Yesterdays’ price of $86.93 on Amazon wasn’t much of a deal over buying each season individually, but today only, they’re dropping another $30.94 off the sticker, making your final cost $55.99. That’s just over eleven bucks a season.
Extras from the individual season releases seem to have carried over, and the complete series collection comes in a nifty book with images from the series scattered throughout, which will not only look a whole lot nicer, but also take up a lot less shelf space than five individual boxes.
