Sorry for the delay. Today’s my last day of vacation, so I went golfing instead of sitting in front of the computer. Given how I swung the club today, I think I should have stayed behind the computer.
But look what’s coming out this week:
Animaniacs: Vol. 1 Pinky and The Brain: Vol. One
REJOICE! I’m hitting Best Buy tomorrow, for sure.
I saw some of the writers and voice talent for both shows at the San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend. I have pictures and video from that to show all of you. I hope to get to that in the next week. Or, check YouTube. It’s probably already up there from someone else’s digital camera. You can’t beat a live performance of “All The Countries Of The World” by Rob Paulsen. . . (I hope I got that title right.)
La Femme Nikita: Season Four (6-disc set)
Best Buy has a decent sale on all the boxed sets in this series, if you’re so interested.
Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers: Divimax (1988)
Is “Divimax” supposed to be a new format? Or is that just the latest and greatest way to say, “We’re asking you to buy this for a third time, so here’s a new banner to splash across the top of the box”?
Hudson Hawk: 15th Anniversary Edition (1991)
Wasn’t this thing savaged when it came out? Didn’t it bomb? Or was this one of those movies that was unfairly criticized when it first came out, and now is ready to find its true audience?
Maybe I need to bring back the DVD podcast and retitle it “I Hate The Movie Industry.”
JAG: Season One
What took them so long? It’s CBS’ Little Engine That Could show.
Now, they have NCIS.
Laguna Beach: Season Two
Did you just die when Lauren did that thing she did to that good looking guy, who was really in love with that other blonde chick that he always talked about on the basketball court with that other cute guy with the five o’clock shadow and runway model good looks? Ohmigawd!
Punky Brewster: Season Three
As big a child of the 80s as I am — NO.
Next week: When people ask why I stopped doing the DVD podcast, I’ll be able now to answer it thus: Because I’d have to find something witty to say to put down next week’s release of the direct-to-video “I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer.” Would you wish that on your worst enemy? I didn’t think so.
On the bright side, V FOR VENDETTA is also out next week.
