Holiday week or no, the new [tag]DVD[/tag]s arrive on Tuesday. Hey, that’s today!
Some brief highlights, with a full podcast coming tonight:
[tag]ALF[/tag], Season 3 ALF: The Animated Series: 20,000 Years In Driving School AlfTales: Alf & The Beanstalk
It’s All-Alf, All The Time this week! Ha!
Avatar: The Last Airbender: Book 1: Water, Volume 3
I know it’s a great series, but I need to watch SAMURAI JACK first.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer gets all seven seasons re-released in the new slimcase packaging this week.
Joey: The Complete 1st Season
I admit to being one of the five people in America who enjoyed this season.
The Kids in the Hall: Season 4
I know some of you enjoy this kind of thing. . .
Night Stalker: The Complete Series
It didn’t last long last season, so now it gets burnt to the world of profitability.
Numb3rs (Numbers): Season 1
Math nerds rejoice! There’s some good stuff in there.
[tag]The Tomorrow People[/tag]: Set 3
I need to rent one of these discs sometime. I have fond memories of the series from its Nickelodeon reruns in the early 80s. I’m sure it’s awful, but I’d like to see what it was really like.
And from the movies department:
Date Movie (unrated) (2006) Date Movie (R-rated) (2006)
I’d go unrated, if I actually picked it up.
Platoon: 20th Anniversary Edition (1986) Smokey and the Bandit: Collector’s Edition (1977) Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?: Special Edition (2-disc set) (1962)
More Unnecessary Special Editions. Next week’s release list is HUGE, and most of the highlights are repackaged movies already available on DVD. I’m beginning to think that it’s only the saps who buy major (and most not-so-major) movies on their first release. Wait for the sequel, pick up the better edition.
Next week: Lots of Unnecesary Special Editions, and more seasons of X-FILES in new packaging. That’s about it.
