ICQ: # 1 Posted on 30.6.09 1148.59 | Instant Rating: 8.51 Sorry I'm late...I unwittingly fell asleep for like a zillion hours. This Tuesday - well, okay, TODAY we have 254 new DVDs and 20 new Blu-rays. Some of these may already be out of stock because I am so late! You probably were not interested in any of those! As usual, more info can be found by hovering, clicking on IMDb or tv.com icons, clicking on movie website icons and/or company links, or you can turn the computer off and go outside. It's (still) (mostly) a free country. PICK OF THE WEEK Parker Lewis Can't Lose: The Complete First Season (The W at Amazon) (FOX, 1990-1) I can't believe it's finally on DVD, either. More info and previews at Shout! Factory (shoutfactorystore.com) Kim really likes this show, but I didn't make it her pick of the week. See below for THAT... MOVIES OF THE WEEK THE BIG ONES Jonas Brothers: The Concert Experience (Single-Disc Edition) (2009) NOT in 3D on DVD...sorry Jonas Brothers: The Concert Experience (Two-Disc Extended Edition + Digital Copy) Jonas Brothers: The 3-D Concert Experience (Blu-ray/DVD Combo w/ BD Live + Digital Copy) [Blu-ray] Princess Protection Program (Disney, 2008) Like there wasn't already enough for the tweens to ingest with the Jonasfest above.
