HAPPY NEW YEAR! Welcome to ONLY SONY HAD ANYTHING WORTH RELEASING THIS TUESDAY WEEK!

This is the first week of 2012, which means I've been doing this mostly on, a bit off for FIVE YEARS. We are all older.

This week's list currently contains 98 DVDs and 36 Blu-ray titles, but will be subject to change to closer we get to Tuesday 1/3 I'm sure.

Ok, I'm ashamed to admit that I've never seen "Blade Runner". If that's the reference they were going for, it went over my head. Didn't hurt the episode at all.
