One of my favorite TV shows ever is Get Smart, so it is with great pleasure that I report that today’s Amazon Gold Box spotlight deal of the day is Get Smart – The Complete Series Gift Set for $74.99 (that’s 62% off the list price price of $199.95).
Also as part of the Gold Box offer today, as part of Amazon’s week of Network TV DVD deals, is Gilligan’s Island: The Complete Series Collection for $43.99 (that’s 62% off the list price of $114.82) and The Waltons: The Complete Seasons 1-9 for $103.99 (that’s 62% off the list price of $275.98).
Note, these deals are for only for today — Saturday, May 8, 2010 — until midnight PST or before that while supplies last.
The Get Smart set is a massive 5-volume collection with all 138 original episodes of the Mel Brooks/Buck Henry-created 1960s TV spy comedy, which starred Don Adams as the bumbling secret agent Maxwell Smart and Barbara Feldon as his beautiful, more capable partner Agent 99. The episodes have been digitally restored and remastered and there’s over nine hours of rare footage and bonus features — including episode intros by Feldon and selected-episode commentary by the showâ€™s cast and crew — in this 25-DVD box set, which is housed in a cute little box that opens up like the payphone from the show’s opening credits.
For a detailed rundown of all of this DVD set’s bonus features, along with some video, see the review of this boxed set.
The Gilligan’s Island set is 9 discs set with all three seasons of the sitcom about the seven stranded castaways on a remote tropical island, while The Waltons collection contains nine seasons of the 1970s family drama.
