Hello.

A quick scan of our threads for 2008 thus far reveals that only the week of 1/1 saw less activity than this week. I guess the thinking is that everyone would rather go out and play during the summer than stay indoors and watch DVDs. Me... I'm a big fan of air conditioning, and I CAN'T be alone there. But along the same lines, I certainly do not mind an easy week!

And so we have a meager 139 releases - 132 DVD + 7 Blu-Ray - below. All but three are out on Tuesday, 7/15 and the three that aren't have their release dates noted in parentheses.

If you are so inclined, learn more by hovering, visiting the related IMDb and/or tv.com links, and visiting Amazon!

Purchases are always appreciated, but not mandatory!

LET'S GO



PICK OF THE WEEK

No Substitute for Victory: From Vietnam to Iraq (The W at Amazon) John Wayne's pro-Vietnam war documentary/speechifyin' (1970) combined with "new interactive sequences" to...draw parallels to our current Iraq war? Wow. I have to admit I'm a sucker for super political John Wayne because he's just so .... RIGHT (winger). I don't know how much hearing, say, Tony Blankley bring it up to 2007 (or whenever they put this out) adds value. More info about this release comes from the distributor, who didn't want to do their OWN reviews, I guess, so they just completely stole a DVDTalk review reposted directly at their own site (roangroup.com).

RUNNER-UP

8 Wheels & Some Soul Brotha' Music (2003) Roller skating and music... that's all you REALLY need in a documentary, people - More info, trailers, and pictures of chicks in skates and hot pants at Indican (indicanpictures.com)



TV OF THE WEEK

Reno 911 - The Complete Fifth Season (Comedy Central, 2008) I had no idea this was still on the air - and if TV.com is right this brings you right up to the episode that aired just last Thursday

Saving Grace - Season 1 (TNT, 2007)

Best of Manswers: The Season One Top 25 Manswers (Spike TV)

Eureka - Season Two (SciFi, 2007)

Swamp Thing: the Series Vol. 2 (USA, 1992-3) Includes what tv.com lists as the second season along with episodes 1-9, 12-13, 25, 30, 33 and 37 (if I counted right) of what tv.com calls the third season. I guess this is more of that "in the order they were meant to be seen business?" You know what, maybe you should just go check the episode list at Shout! Factory (shoutfactorystore.com) yourself.

Birds of Prey: The Complete Series (The WB, 2002-3) NERD ALERT

Dallas - The Complete Ninth Season (CBS, 1985-6) Don't worry....it didn't really happen

America's Test Kitchen: Season 8 (PBS, 2007) 26 episodes listed here (americastestkitchen.com)

Red White Black & Blue (PBS, 2006) Looking back at a Japanese invasion of American (Alaskan) soil during WWII kept secret - more info at PBS (pbs.org) or www.alaskainvasion.com

Jupiter Moon: Fires of Io (Galaxy) Fourth (and final?) set of episodes of the space opera

Laredo, Disc 1 According to Amazon review, one disc from [amazon B000TLTCOK]this "Best of" set[/amazon\
The Guns of Will Sonnett, Disc One Presumably something similarly compiled from a different western

BRITISH TV OF THE WEEK
Robbie Coltrane - Incredible Britain I believe this is "Robbie Coltrane's B Road Britain" (ITV, 2007)
Beau Brummell - This Charming Man (BBC Four, 2006)

SUPER DUPER TV MOVIE EVENT OF THE WEEK
Final Approach (Hallmark, 2007) WOW what a cast list: Dean Cain, Anthony Michael Hall, Ernie Hudson, Sunny Mabrey, Lea Thompson, William Forsythe, Barry Livingston, Tracey Gold - and that's just the first eight of the 70+ names (Richard Roundtree!) listed - as an added bonus, I believe this is the "European movie theatrical version" which hopefully means more swearing and (Anthony Michael Hall's) boobs

ET CETERA

ADVERTS

Classic TV Commercials: Ones We Never Forgot "3 discs, 110 commercials" - bonus features bring it past the six hour mark (because I doubt it's a bunch of 3+ minute commercials...?) - if I ever have six hours to watch classic commercials, it will be time to die
Classic TV Commercials: What We Lusted For Not to mention here's ANOTHER 3 discs, 105 commercials and over six hours
TV Commercials- The Ultimate Collection And with their usual fantastic logic, the box set comibing the two costs MORE than purchasing them separately - I would be AMAZED these guys are still in business, but I'm pretty sure slapping together "public domain" releases is a low overhead business - in fact, what aren't WE doing that?!

COLLECTIONS OF MYSTERY

The American Indian "3 discs, 26 features"
Bob Hope & Bing Crosby (2pc)

HELP ME HELP YOU

The Searching Generation: The Spiritual Life of Twenty-Something Where are my car keys?
Healing for A Broken World Let the healing begin

March to Victory: Road to Rome



And finally...

How to Juggle and Other Cheap Tricks with Marty Pollio

Them's it, folks. Be back Monday and we'll see if we can prune it even more with cancellations and rescheduling, and we'll see which 24 of these make it to the tippy top of the preorder list from the people paying attention!

Here's where YOU can reply, or email me at CRZ.DVD@gmail.com. Thanks!

That Devil May Cry anime is pretty good, but you only get four episodes on each disc which isn't really worth $20. I'd wait for the inevitable boxed set if you're interested.

Then again, if you're interested, you probably already bought them.

As a 'NERD', I feel I need to speak up and say that I will NOT be getting the awful BIRDS OF PREY set.

It was terrible.

This somewhat surprises me, because I thought since they sunk so much into Max that they would give him at least two years. The show had gotten better as it got older, but I never knew when the show was on.
