(Click on the "DVD" thread icon to find threads going back to the beginning of the year...here are links to the previous four weeks: 7/24 - 7/31 - 8/7 - 8/14)

Hello.

A light week of 192 releases for Tuesday awaits you - read on for the gory details!

For those of you who HAVEN'T been here before, these lists work like so:

Hovering over links should provide you with Amazon's current price.

CLICKING on those links will take you to the Amazon shopping cart with a friendly referral from The W - consider making your purchase through us and it'll place a few coins in our tip jar!

Because Amazon sometimes can't come correct with the information, you will see some exposition from me (or, more likely, a bad joke) in addition to the listing along with IMDb icons (which can be clicked to take you to a movie's IMDb listing) or tv.com icons (which can be clicked to take you to the relevant episode list from tv.com)

All links should open in new windows so you can come right back here after your research! (If you want - we're totally flexible about that!)

Please tell a friend (or vote this thread up Digg/Netscape/&c. with a click of the icon(s) of your choice at the bottom) about this post because it takes me a long time and I'm a big fan of more eyeballs!

Please feel free to add a reply and share your two cents about any of the listings you see here - show off your impressive knowledge, share your opinion about something you've seen, something you're looking forward to seeing, or make your own crappy jokes which are better than mine!

We also hope that if you buy something, you come back and tell us what you thought about it! This hardly ever happens, but again, we can dream!

If you have something to say but don't want to say it publicly (or register for the board - but geez, why not just register for the board?), you can also email me direct at CRZ.DVD@gmail.com!

The horses are on the track...

I might have to pick up that two-disk RoboCop set, even though you're right, it's a new version of a film I've already bought.

Wasn't Janine Turner a classically trained pianist before she got into acting? I remember reading this somewhere.

I also can't help but notice that you have the pseudo porn right after the religious DVDs... is this catholic guilt?

What happened to you Cover of the Week? There hasn't been one in... er... weeks.

Not much to change today - in fact, only ONE:

NEW FOR THIS WEEK:
Coleccion de Oro: Antonio Aguilar Vol. III (The W at Amazon) - I'm sure you were on pins and needles waiting for this one

Fortunately I messed up Saturday, so there's also this:

MYSTERY LISTINGS MYSTERIOUSLY REMOVED FROM THE FINAL EDIT:
The John Wayne Collection
Voyage of Discovery
Once Upon a Time in China: Next Chapters Collection Well, it's almost six hours, whatever it is
Message in a Cell Phone
Monkey Business
Wild Side

Maybe the Netscape guys figured out I only had 186 listings instead of the promised 192 and removed the link for THAT reason. Maybe somebody thought I was spamming and didn't bother to check to see if I'd been doing this for almost nine months. They didn't leave me a message explaining it. That's not very curteous! Ah well, who needs 'em. (I'll try again if there's another post next/this week.)

Amazon only put 12 on the page this time, but just for you I looked at two pages to make a Top 24:

1 House, M.D. - Season Three
2 Serenity (Collector's Edition)
3 South Park - The Complete Tenth Season
4 The Lives of Others
5 Dexter - The First Season
6 JAG (Judge Advocate General) - The Complete Fourth Season
7 Ugly Betty - The Complete First Season
8 The Ultimate Gift
9 Trapped in the Closet: Chapters 13-22
10 Perfect Stranger (Widescreen Edition)
11 Disney's Little Einsteins - Rocket's Firebird Rescue
12 Dog Whisperer With Cesar Millan: The Complete Second Season
13 Robocop (20th Anniversary Collector's Edition)
14 Loreena McKennitt: Nights from the Alhambra (Amaray - DVD + 2CD)
15 The Milky Way (Criterion Collection)
16 House of Games - Criterion Collection
17 Jethro Tull: Live at Montreux
18 The Lives of Others [Blu-ray]
19 Handy Manny - Tooling Around
20 Perfect Stranger [Blu-ray]
21 Immortal Beloved [Blu-ray]
22 Broken English
23 Redline
24 Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan: Cesar's Toughest Cases

That's PROBABLY right.

Amazon currently says there are 714 results for next week, so that may be a good time to quit - we'll see!

I don't see it that way at all. Each of the final three (shortened) seasons needs to tell a compact, tight story with no room whatsoever for running in place.
