With the Independence Day holiday Monday, it seems like this week was a blowoff week for all the majors - no big time movies out on DVD, but a good number of TV seasons, so they dominate this week's top 24 (large italics). Only 136 DVDs and 30 Blu-rays make up this week's list.

Pretty much by default...there could be no other

PICK OF THE WEEK

Hobo With a Shotgun (The W at Amazon) (Canada/USA, 2011) Rutger Hauer IS
Hobo With a Shotgun 2-Disc Collector's Edition Second disc adds a documentary, deleted scenes, alternate ending, "video blogs" (OH BOY!), and some trailers - along with info on how to obtain a totally bogus digital copy
Hobo with a Shotgun [Blu-ray]



TV OF THE WEEK

Eureka: Season 4.0 (Syfy, 2010) First half (10 episodes) of the season - season 4.5 starting soon!
Eureka: Season One (SciFi, 2006)
Eureka: Season Two (SciFi, 2007) And here are the first two seasons again for some reason (I guess so devotées can buy these and exclaim "it was so much BETTER then!")

Boy Meets World: The Complete Sixth Season (ABC, 1998-9)

Mannix: Fifth Season (CBS, 1971-2)
Mannix: Five Season Pack TIED FOR MOST EXPENSIVE ITEM OF THE WEEK

Transformers Japanese Collection: Headmasters (Japan, 1987?) Aficionados of these things say the Japanese Series 4 blows away the US season 4 - now you can FINALLY find out without having to endure a horribly dubbed 10th generation copy! More info at Shout! Factory (shoutfactorystore.com)

McMillan & Wife: Season 5 (NBC, 1975-6)
Mcmillan & Wife: Season 4 (NBC, 1974-5)

Southland: The Complete Second Season (Uncensored) (2 Disc) (TNT, 2010) from Warner Archives for some reason (DVD-R) (7/8)

Dynasty: Season Five Two Pack (ABC, 1984-5) Inexplicably, more expensive than buying two halves separately:
Dynasty: Season Five V.1
Dynasty: Season Five V.2

Gettysburg / Gods and Generals (Limited Collector's Edition) Six DVDs in a crazy box
Gettysburg / Gods and Generals (Limited Collector's Edition) [Blu-ray] Four Blu-ray discs in a crazy box

According to Jim: The Complete Fourth Season (ABC, 2004-5)

VICTORiOUS: Season One, Volume One (Nickelodeon, 2010) First half (10 episodes) of the season

The Cape: The Complete Series (NBC, 2011)

The PJ's: Season Two (FOX, 2000)

The FBI: Season One Part 1 (ABC, 1965-6) Probably half (15 or 16 episodes) Also from Warner Archives (DVD-R?) (7/8)

Witchcraft: Myths & Legends (National Geographic)

Mysteries At The Museum Season 1 (Travel) Not at tv.com but there's a series guide at Travel Channel (travelchannel.com)
Dogs 101 (Animal Planet, 2009) Don't know how many/which episodes
Cats 101 (Animal Planet, 2008-9) Ditto

America the Story of Us: Boom (History, 2010)
America the Story of Us: Millennium (History, 2010)
America the Story of Us: Rise of a Superpower (History, 2010) No idea why they're only offering individual episodes instead of the entire season

Making of the President The 1960s - 3 DVD set - more info at Athena Learning (athenalearning.com)

Tom & Jerry: Fur Flying Adventures 2 14 (probably really crappy) cartoons

"SERIES SO FAR" RELEASES FROM ADULT SWIM WHAT THE I HAVE NO IDEA OF THE WEEK
Aqua Teen Hunger Force 1-7 & Movie TIED FOR MOST EXPENSIVE ITEM OF THE WEEK
Metalocalypse: Seasons 1-3
Squidbillies 1-4
Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job: Seasons 1-5
Venture Bros: Seasons 1-4 I'll BET you could collect the individual seasons' sets for less than these prices...if you were so inclined, that is. Maybe you like to pay for convenience! Maybe you could pay ME to find them for you for cheaper! I've got nothing better to do and I LOVE your money as much as they do!
