I am in search of used (in good condition) DVDs of the A and E series “City Confidential.” The series was moved to bio a few years ago. I’m convinced it is one of the best crime documentaries of all time. I’ve never wanted to buy a t.v. series before and this particular series is complicated because individual episodes are sold for $24.95. Rather steep when there’s about 70 episodes.
I’ve been able to find a few great deals…two or three used in new condition for just a couple of dollars. This were on amazon. These are probably my least favorites but I want to find the top ones. Even on Amazon, those used ones are the same prices as the new ones…and some even higher (up to $70).
I haven’t been able to find anything on E-bay. Tonight I could only find a “best of” gift set with an hour of American Justice and an Hour of city confidential No full story on either one, just clips.
I would like to buy these for as cheap as I can find them, naturally. I’m beginning to wonder if these are somehow collector’s items, although I haven’t heard anything about that status and I visit the show’s chat rooms when possible. I suppose I may subscribe to Bio (It’s about $7 more a month for the next tier), by a recorder and tape them myself. I don’t want to go the route of DVR or Tivo as I would actually like to have the DVDs. If my understanding of Tivo and DVR is correct, you can record it and watch it but you don’t actually have the show to keep. Please correct me if I’m wrong.
I know many of you buy/sell used media on the Internet so I was wondering if you could point me to some sites. I’m not asking you to search for this show in particular, but if you could just refer me to some of the lesser-known sites besides Amazon, e-bay and half.com.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
