Get full seasons of Battlestar Galactica and other shows for just $5 each. Amazon

In an effort to push its new-ish Video On Demand service, Amazon is offering cheap deals on full seasons of popular TV shows. For example, you can get the first three seasons of Battlestar Galactica for just 5 bucks each. Also in the bargain bin: House (four seasons' worth), Heroes (seasons 1 and 2), The Office, and, if you're really hard up for entertainment, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Saved By the Bell.

In case you're not familiar with it, Amazon Video on Demand lets you stream shows and movies right in your browser (Mac or PC), no download required. However, you do have the option of downloading videos to your PC, notebook, TiVo, or compatible portable player for later (offline) viewing.

Obviously, you can choose whatever viewing experience suits you best, but I especially recommend this deal for entertainment-starved, notebook-toting travelers. Five bucks for 22 episodes of House? How can you beat that?

Update: Sigh, well THAT was a short-lived sale! Looks like only Heroes is left at the $5 price. Come on, Amazon, give us more than 10 minutes, would ya?
