Packed full of Extras - has anyone, other than Ridley Scott, actually viewed them all? - that boxed-set hit the shops with a steep price-tag! As time wore on, it became a lot more affordable, being indispensible for HMV's misleading "Sales." £99 reduced to £9.99 or something!Alien Quadrilogy box set today at revitalise charity shop, asking price was 90p
I had a copy before but lost it in a fire, can't remember what I paid but I know it wasn't £99 ! When I asked the price in the charity shop, the woman said "all dvd's 10p , 9 x 10p , 90p please. Last year bought Special Edition Planet Of the Apes 2 disc, asking price 20p ! ( paid 50p, its like new)Packed full of Extras - has anyone, other than Ridley Scott, actually viewed them all? - that boxed-set hit the shops with a steep price-tag!

It certainly sold well - there can't be a Cash Converter without at least ten copies! - the rest are in the charity-shops. A pound or two is the going-rate but you get a lot of Alien for your money!
I see it is a brand-name of Pickwick, an impulse-buy outfit which has been blighting the bargain-browsers since the sixties, at least. IIRC, it is an outpost of the US Hallmark empire. Their natural, retail partner-in-crime was Woolworths, back in the day of vinyl and tape. I have a feeling that the DVDs were handled by The Works and similar stores, though I do recall that HMV used to carry some of them at prices which would lead you to expect better - until you saw the brand! Their Intolerance was more intolerable than ever before.Elstree Hill were a blight on the DVD industry.
Is that you modelling?
And your wifes.ln my dreams...
TOP bargain-shopping there.A couple of years ago I saw a Barbour bodywarmer in the window of a charity shop. I can't remember how much it cost but though it was a good price for Barbour, it was expensive for a charity shop item (£20 or £30 I think). So I didn't get it and it quickly vanished from the window. I then saw a similar one in a charity shop window, went to look at it and it was a Barbour. I thought I would have a look at the price and it was £4! And it fit. So I got it.
Which is how I felt when I saw a film late one night that had Carmen Silvera from Allo Allo topless. It just didn't feel right, like seeing your boss in an indecently small pair of swimming trunks.I've seen the film of Tropic of Cancer and the image I took away from it was seeing comedienne Sheila Steafel topless. It was like seeing Bernard Cribbins naked or something. Henry, you dirty boy.
