We're here a day early - it's a whole lot easier when you're only looking up 93 DVDs and 20 Blu-rays! LET'S GO PICK OF THE WEEK (The W at Amazon) (FOX, 2011) Family Guy: It's A Trap! It'll air later, but you must have it now. "Family Guy" may suck more than it used to, but the Star Wars parodies are still money. I preordered this as soon as I knew it existed. Family Guy: It's A Trap! [Blu-ray] If you haven't already bought the first two in the trilogy ("Blue Harvest" and "Something Something Something Dark Side"), why not get all three in a pretty box? Family Guy 3-Pack (Blue Harvest/SSS Darkside/It's A Trap) It's in a DIFFERENT BOX!!! (They're BOTH called "Laugh it Up, Fuzzball" - don't know why the DVD set didn't get that in its description but now you know) Laugh It Up Fuzzball: The Family Guy Trilogy (It's A Trap / Something Something Something Dark Side / Blue Harvest) [Blu-ray] TV OF THE WEEK (Comedy Central, 2010) Futurama: Volume Five Marking their glorious return to television and picking up like they never left off (well - if you ignore some of those "movies" we got in the interim) - tv.com calls this "Season 7" but I think we called it season 6 on the board...well, most of the time (The W).) Futurama: Volume 5 [Blu-ray] (Syfy, 2010-11) Caprica: Season 1.5 Hmmm....according to tv.com this season hasn't even ended yet - oh, I see, the episodes shelved after the cancellation will all air 1/4 on a Syfy marathon. Well...might as well buy this if you haven't already torrented them from Canada or something (A&E, 2009) Gene Simmons Family Jewels: Complete Season 4 (A&E, 2010) Gene Simmons Family Jewels: Season 5 TV THAT DIDN'T AIR ON TV OF THE WEEK (watchtheguild.com, 2010) The Guild: Season Four includes the "Danny Thomas Show" episode which served as the pilot, the reunion movie "Return to Mayberry" (NBC, 1986) The Andy Griffith Show 50th Anniversary: Best of Mayberry and 17 selected episodes The Secret Life of the American Teenager: Volume Five (ABC Family, 2010) Probably all of season 3? Billy the Exterminator: Season 1 (A&E, 2009) aka "The Exterminators" Billy the Exterminator: Season 2 (A&E, 2009-?10?) Gilmore Girls: Complete Seasons 1&2 Wow, CHEAP! (STILL wonder if they'll sell any.) The Virginian - The Complete Season Two - 30 Full Color Episodes! 10 DVD Set in a COLLECTIBLE EMBOSSED TIN! (NBC, 1963-4) Ages of Man - John Gielgud (CBS, 1966) Bob Ross: Joy of Painting - Waterfalls Collection 13 episodes of the waterfall theme - I love how the description ends: "...which includes six-and-a-half hours of Bob Ross patiently teaching you his world famous Wet-on-Wet Painting Technique." Bob Ross: Joy of Painting - Barns Collection 13 episodes featuring (probably happy and little) barns Sesame Street: Old School, Vols 1 and 2 (Amazon Exclusive) Pushed back from last week - see last week's report to see my witty remarks about this one (or don't, it's totally not worth it - which is kinda what I said about this...hey!) History Classics: American Adventurers (History) History Classics: Famous Figures of the Civil War (History) The Rivals (Smithsonian Channel) More info over there (smithsonianchannel.com) TV MOVIE OF THE WEEK Stonehenge Apocalypse (Syfy, USA/Canada, 2010) Misha Collins, Torri Higginson, Hill Harper COLOMBIAN TV OF THE WEEK Munecas De La Mafia: Part 1 (Caracol Telvisión, 2009) 6 discs AND FINALLY, "60 MINUTES" OF THE WEEK 60 Minutes - The Chairman (December 5, 2010) Wasn't this a rerun? Oh well (DVD-R) 60 Minutes - Facebook (December 5, 2010) See this entire episode over at 60 Minutes (cbsnews.com) (DVD-R) MOVIES OF THE WEEK (2010) Salt (Theatrical Edition) Angelina Jolie, Liev Schreiber, Chiwetel Ejiofor Adds not one but TWO "unrated extended cuts" along with some other bonus features - AND, as I type this, it's a buck CHEAPER than the theatrical version, so....c'mon. Salt (Deluxe Unrated Edition) Of course, adds even more stuff you'll never watch - or watch once - more info at the movie website linked up there Salt (Deluxe Unrated Edition) [Blu-ray] (2010) Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps Hurry and buy it before Michael Douglas dies!! Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (Blu-ray + Digital Copy) Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (Two-Pack w/ Wall Street) There was also a version of these two in a fancier box, but Amazon says that one's currently unavailable. Wall Street:Money Never Sleeps Rr [Blu-ray] Hmm, maybe rental editions? (You probably don't want 'em - too expensive!) Wall Street:Money Never Sleeps Rr (2010) Easy A Emma Stone, Penn Badgley, Amanda Bynes, Thomas Haden Church, Patricia Clarkson, Cam Gigandet, Aly Michalka, Stanley Tucci - gee, I wish they'd put some more names on the cover... Easy A [Blu-ray] (Step Up 3D - 2010) Step Up 3 Sadly, movie webside has been bumped to a mere Facebook page Also sadly: NOT in 3D... Step Up 3 (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) ...well, OK, if you buy THIS Blu-ray it's in 3D. Good luck to you all. Step Up 3D (Three-Disc Combo Pack: Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy) (2010) Devil Oh wow, remember this movie? Remember that elevator? Remeber allllll those ads? Well, I do. F-U, Devil movie! Devil [Blu-ray] BIG COLLECTION OF THE WEEK The Films of Rita Hayworth (Cover Girl / Tonight and Every Night / Gilda / Salome / Miss Sadie Thompson) (1945-53) "Cover Girl" and "Gilda" are not new to DVD, but the other three are (and will not be available separately) MOVIE STARRING THE GREAT KHALI OF THE WEEK Ramaa - The Saviour (New Hindi Movie / Bollywood Film / Indian Cinema DVD) (India, 2010) Hey! That guy on the cover looks just like Dalip Singh! (12/27) MOVIE WHICH INEVITABLY WILL GET MORE ATTENTION THAN IT DESERVES BUT I AM NOT IMMUNE OF THE WEEK Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus (direct to video...and surely Syfy, 2010) Jaleel White, Gary Stretch, Robert Picardo - no, REALLY. I'm sure by now you've figured out it could only have sprung fully formed from the collective mind of The Asylum (theasylum.cc) THE BLU-RAY SECTION Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad [Blu-ray] (Japan, 2008) "Bikini samurai squad" - my interest just perked up DVD was out last year The Matador [Blu-ray] (USA/Germany/Ireland, 2005) Pierce Brosnan, Greg Kinnear, Hope Davis Orlando [Blu-ray] (UK/Russia/France/Italy/Netherlands, 1992) DVD was out in August Once An Eagle starring Sam Elliott!
