Hello! This week we have 156 DVDs and 26 Blu-rays and not too much to talk about. But that's OK!

PICK OF THE WEEK
Childrens Hospital: Complete First & Second Seasons (The W at Amazon) (The WB 2.0/Adult Swim, 2008-10) Rob Corddroy and ensemble's show was originally a web series, but smashed together into 11 minute episodes for Adult Swim, who then commissioned another season - and the THIRD season will premier in June - if you recognize any of these folks from other shows you have enjoyed, you will like this one too - they all seem to run in the same TV circles



TV OF THE WEEK

The top preordered TV DVD of the week is also the #1 preorder of the week, and it is...
The Royal Wedding: William & Catherine (BBC) Cheap! (Cheap don't hurt)

The Unknown War: WWII And The Epic Battles Of The Russian Front (Soviet Union, 1978) 20 part documentary series hosted by Burt Lancaster focuses on Nazi vs. Soviet part of WWII, decried by historians as propaganda piece - I'd love to hear why Vivendi decided to release it on DVD now

Ice Road Truckers: Deadliest Roads: Season 1 [Blu-ray]

Kids In The Hall, The: Complete Series DVD Megaset 22 discs! This version includes...
