The Avengers: Complete Emma Peel Mega-Set (17-disc set)
The world needs more 17- disc sets. Though it’s only going to be 14 discs, just wait for the Superman megaset this fall. . .
C.O.P.S.: The Animated Series (4-disc set)
I barely remember this one anymore. I seem to only ever recall watching the last two minutes of episodes because something I wanted to watch was always on right after it. DC did a comics series based on the show at the time, didn’t they? Hey, if Marvel was running with the animated POLICE ACADEMY comic, then surely DC should have had C.O.P.S.
Those two go together nicely. NETWORK is a great movie. George Clooney is set to remake it as a live TV movie, complete with Les Moonves returning to his acting roots. I’m sure Clooney will be sure to take pot shots at Fox News along the way, too, being the creative dynamo that he is.
The Drew Carey Show: TV Favorites
If I can’t get the season sets, I’ll settle for this for now.
The Ice Harvest (widescreen) (2005)
A little dud of a Christmas movie starring everyone’s favorite, John Cusack.
Lady and the Tramp: 50th Anniversary Edition (2-disc set) (1955)
Best-selling release of the week, I’d bet.
Night Court: TV Favorites
The first season came out a year ago already, with no second season released yet. Is this a bad sign?
Pride & Prejudice (2005)
This one features Oscar nominee, Keira Knightley, the sexiest tomboy beanpole on the planet. I’m beginning to think that that description of her is suffering from the law of diminishing returns. Do people still remember its origins? I’m probably one of the last few in an internet age where memory isn’t an issue; we have Google.
Great movie, horribly overlooked by the Oscars people. Sure, it’s got all the usual cliches of this kind of bio-pic, but it was still entertaining as all get out.
Next week: FREE ENTERPRISE gets a special edition so you can see William Shatner rapping in all his glory. The latest HARRY POTTER movie is released. The “Borg” pack of STAR TREK episodes shows up. And a couple of other quaint DVDs will round it all out.
