    I've been searching everywhere to try and find it, and can't find it for a decent price, let alone at all. Does anyone know why this is?

    It's out of print and thus the only ones you'll find are at wholesalers (rare) or on eBay etc.

    Um, define decent price? It's available on Amazon, and their prices are normally reasonable.

    edit
    sorry, there are sellers on Amazon, but not Amazon directly

    Decent is whatever you're willing to pay for it. Not like the only price you could get either of the Rhino Season 2 box sets were at least $150. That was the first Season 2 DVD box set and once it went out of print, the price skyrocketed. Only after it started getting re-released did the price come down. Your only other option (like I did for Season 3) was to buy a set from HK.

    Anyways, decent for me in a per-disc sense is max $10. And I only make that exception for certain movies, its definately not across the board.

    Because it was sadly released, killed, and swept under the rug. It makes me sad. :(  I am very happy to have gotten mine at retail.
