According to Amazon, the Season Three DVDs will be released on September 22 and are available for preorder now for $32.49. And not to toot their own horn or anything, they are also promoting a box set of Seasons One through Three available the same day. The box set is also available for preorder at the low low bargain price of… $77.99?? I’m going on the assumption that the price will drop as the release date gets closer – Seasons One and Two are at Target for $40 and $20 respectively, and the prices (at least for Season One) will probably drop the week Season 3 is released.

As of this writing, Best Buy has Season 1 on sale for $25 and Season 2 for $23.


What kind of friend would I be if I didn’t mention that Scott Adsit will be sitting down with Jesse Thorn for a recording of The Sound of Young America Live on Friday, September 18th at 8:00 PM at the Jerome Greene Performace Space at WNYC? Ticket info is here. Hope to see YOU there!
