Another week, another list. Another link to DVDJournal.com.
The Amazing Race: Season One (4-disc set)
This is the reality show that the critics actually like — despite that, it’s a fun show. Go back to see where it all began now. Thrill to the best token gay team ever to hit the series, Team Guido. Those guys were great. While everyone else ran around like chickens with their heads cut off, Team Guido would stop for a croissant at a fine dining establishment, because they could. It’s fun to see someone enjoy the game like that.
Chico and the Man: TV Favorites
Whose favorite is this, though?
Creature Comforts: Season One
More fun with Nick Park animation. There’s just over 2 hours of material on here.
Dark Shadows DVD Collection 20
Someone must be buying them. . .
The Evil Dead 2: Book of the Dead Special Edition (1987)
Because that’s exactly what the world needs: ANOTHER edition of this movie.
The Family Guy Presents Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story
This is definitely the release of the week. It’s a new FAMILY GUY movie, complete with the “f” word. I can’t wait.
Gilmore Girls: Season Four (6-disc set)
If Aaron Sorkin wanted to write a soapy teen melodrama, this would be it.
A Knight’s Tale: Extended Cut (2001)
We will, we will rock you. (“Buffalo wings!”) NOW with the extra verse!
The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp: From Ellsworth to Tombstone
On the off chance that Beau Smith reads this blog, I dedicate this line to him.
Robots (widescreen) (2005)
I erred in the podcast this weekend. This is not a Dreamworks pic. This is 20th Century FOX. I’ll correct that in next week’s podcast, promise. But it does once again prove a point — if you want people to respond to your podcast or column, just make a mistake. You’ll be corrected. The internet is handy that way, at least.
Thriller: Season One
Never heard of this one before today… It’s a 1980 anthology series starring Boris Karloff.
The X-Files Mythology: Colonization (4-disc set)
Go ahead – try to make sense of it all. I wish you luck.
Next week: animated BATMAN DVD re-releases (another podcast correction for next week), COUNT DUCKULA, THE INTERPRETER, STAR TREK: NEMESIS special edition, and more.
