Black Friday – Once Upon A Dark Knight (UPDATE x3)

Tom Huxley has madly been spening his money on Black Friday at Amazon. Why not sell a kidney and join him?

Black Friday begins in earnest with two of last year’s most celebrated new shows that couldn’t be more different.

On the one hand, you’ve got Homeland. Fresh from Emmy awards that speak for themselves, Homeland is the tale of a US soldier, played by Damian Lewis, whose return to the States as an apparent war hero after several years in the capture of Al-Qaeda prompts an investigation from a bipolar CIA agent – a tour de force performance by Clare Danes.

The show is adapted from the Israeli series Prisoners of War very loosely. To demonstrate how loosely: in the original, there is no analogue for the Danes character. The new version was created by 24‘s Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, which along with an immaculate score by Sean Callery makes it must-see television for lapsed Jack Bauer junkies pining for a new hit. It’s called Homeland, guys, and it’s right here.

And then you’ve got Once Upon a Time. From LOST‘s Ed Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, Once is what happens when the Evil Queen casts a spell that traps all the fairytale characters in a town without magic – a town in our world – where they cannot remember anything about their former lives. It falls upon the Jennifer Morrison as the orphaned daughter of Snow White, played by Ginnifer Goodwin, and Prince Charming, played by Josh Dallas, to set things right.

But as an outsider she refuses to believe that this is a town populated by former fairytale characters. One of the most compelling and entertaining shows of the last season.

Homeland season one is $19.95 on DVD (66% off) or $24.95 on Blu Ray (65% off). Once Upon a Time season one is $19.99 on DVD (57% off) or $24.99 on Blu Ray (69% off).

UPDATE:

Now is the time to buy Iron Man on Blu Ray. But get your repulsors on, it’s part of Amazon’s Black Friday deal and won’t last long. Just $3.96 on Blu Ray, or $1.96 on DVD if that takes your fancy. Also available, The Matrix on Blu Ray for $3.96.

They’re gone.

And now, the third biggest film of the year, The Hunger Games, on Blu Ray at $8.99 (78% off). Get in there quick as the competition will be tough. Probably not ‘hunger games’ tough. But you never know…

UPDATE x3

Why so serious? Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight is now at $3.96 on Blu Ray and $1.96 on DVD for a very limited time. But get your batcycle on as they’re going fast…
