It’s a slow week this week, but there’s plenty of good stuff coming out between now and Christmas. I’m not worried.
As always, the full list can be had at the Release Calendar section of DVDJournal.com.
# The Complete Jeeves and Wooster (8-disc set) (1990-93)
History of Britain: The Complete Collection (5-disc set) (2001)
Presented just for you Anglophiles. Both sets pale in comparison to the monster Twilight Zone DVD set mentioned here a couple of days ago.
# Ice Age (2-disc set) (2002)
The only disc I’m interested in this week. Yet, I don’t know if I’m going to buy it. Might save it for my Christmas list. Everytime I see a commercial for it, though, I want to pick it up if only for the new animated short.
# Men in Black II: Special Edition (2-disc set) (widescreen) (2002)
Based on the comic. You’d think I’d be more interested in this, but I’m not. I’ve never even seen the first one. It’s a good case of a movie becoming so popular that I lose interest in it. Does that make me a snob? Perhaps.
# The Transformers: Season #2 (4-disc set) (1985)
Pretty cool, but I’ve given up on those things. I don’t think I’d even buy a GI JOE DVD set right now, as tempting as it might be.
# Upstairs, Downstairs: The Complete Series (20-disc set) (1971-75)
OK, this comes close to challenging the girth of the TWILIGHT ZONE boxed set, but is still 29 discs short. Ooh, sorry.
# World Series 2002: Major League Baseball (2002)
I didn’t watch baseball this year. I don’t care.
Heck, I haven’t watched any football this year, either. I think college basketball (go St. Johns!) and professional bowling are the only two sports I’ve stuck with this year.
