Welcome to the dead times. DVD makers have this crazy theory that releasing stuff RIGHT before Christmas tends not to sell very well, so they don't schedule stuff this week - or they schedule it and it mysteriously goes "unavailable" by the time I compile this list. (There are over fifty titles which you WON'T see because Amazon has marked them "unavailable" - and that may go up by Monday!)

What we DO have are 59 DVDs, 27 Blu-rays and five "digital" releases...and there ARE some big titles in here, so don't just take the week off. JOIN US

PICK OF THE WEEK

Futurama: Volume 6 (The W at Amazon) (Comedy Central, 2011) A season so memorable nobody talked about it here:
Futurama 6 [Blu-ray]



THE REST OF THE TV OF THE WEEK

One Tree Hill: The Complete Eighth Season (+ UltraViolet Digital Copy) (The CW, 2010-1) This is actually selling better than "Futurama" this week. I'm going to hope it's because there are both a DVD and Blu-ray version of "Futurama" and not that the DVD purchasing public is so heavy into "One Tree Hill" ...because that's what will get me through the night.

The Franchise: Season 1 (The Franchise: A Season with the San Francisco Giants - Showtime, 2011) (Rescheduled from last week)

The Donna Reed Show: Season 4 - The Lost Episodes (ABC, 1961-2) More info on this 5 DVD set at MPI (mpihomevideo.com)

Prehistoric: Predators Of The Past (Discovery)

NY Ink (TLC, 2011)

MEXICAN TV OF THE WEEK
Triunfo Del Amor (Televisa, 2010-1) telenovela

AND FINALLY, "60 MINUTES" OF THE WEEK
60 Minutes - Hard Times Generation (DVD-R)
60 Minutes - The Flavorists (DVD-R)
60 Minutes - Angelina Or watch the entire 11/27 episode online for free at 60 Minutes (cbsnews.com) (DVD-R)

Wow, that's really it.

Pics for Saint Nick and The Devil please.

Saint Nick (Sint) was pretty good. It's certainly not gonna win any awards or anything like that, but if you wanna see a decent horror film about Christmas, this is good for a look. Make a movie night out of it and watch last years Rare Exports as well.



Forget it Josh... it's Cerebustown.

Jordis wasn't great on the other 2, but "Dream On" was the first one that was painful a la bad national anthems at minor league sports.
