The real, flamboyant Mr. Selfridge brought about a complete revolution in the way that Londoners shopped, introducing a new American retail model which made shopping less of a practical pursuit and more of a luxurious adventure.

What's up with the price?
Have been waiting for this to appear on iTunes! Loved the show when it aired, but why is the full season $6 higher than buying the individual episodes? I'm not seeing extras, so what gives? Will be buying individual episodes on this one.
More episodes to come?
I would assume that the reason the season pass is currently more expensive than buying the four episodes as of June 24, 2014, is that there are more episodes to come. I see that the Season Pass description says “…all current and future episodes…” If that is not the case, then indeed someone slipped badly at PBS.
