The part that caught my eye was the "Amazon Exclusive Blu-Ray" edition. I'm not sure if this is the first edition of any show or movie to be offered exclusively on Amazon, and wonder what the strategy is behind this. Hmmmm...

Will you be ordering UNDER THE DOME? And if so, which edition? Let me know in the comment section, via e-mail or on Twitter!
