Aside from that distributor's name, you get NO information about these! I can speculate with confidence that for $5.99, the 25* "classics" you're gonna get are probably not the best video quality, not to mention "entertainment" quality. In fact, if you've got six bucks to burn, maybe you should just donate it to ME and I'LL try to provide you with some "classic" entertainment. For instance...here's how I hambone! 25 Action Classics 26 Gangster Classics *(or 26) 25 Horror Classics 25 Mystery Classics 25 War Classics 25 Western Classics 25 Sci Fi Classics For no real apparent reason, here they all are again! 25 Action Classics 26 Gangster Classics 25 Horror Classics 25 Mystery Classics 25 War Classics 25 Western Classics 25 Sci Fi Classics AND THE REST OF THE MOVIES OF THE WEEK They Must Eat (2006) More info at R-Squared Films (rsquaredfilms.com) Be Mine (2009) Not in IMDb - more info at Ariztical (ariztical.com) Evil Offspring (direct to video?)

Princess of Mars (direct to video, 2009) Antonio Sabato Jr., Traci Lords - classic The Asylum spiel breathlessly states: "From Edgar Rice Burroughs' novel!

We'll take some periodic checks later to see how this holds up - maybe I should try to move up my posting date to have this available sooner. (Of course, when I only have to look at 100 instead of 400, it's a lot easier for me to think this way. ;-) ) And of course, we'll post a final update right around Monday the 28th and then close the books on another year of time down the drain! Vacation beckons (after Friday) - see you much later! Promote this thread!
SchippeWreck Banger Since: 26.3.03 From: Glendale, CA Since last post: 22 days Last activity: 18 hours # 2 Posted on 16.12.09 1809.13 | Instant Rating: 7.69 Yes, because the second part of the season doesn't begin until April 13, 2010. It's unclear how Fox is handling the DVD release of the second part of the season, though. From TVshowsonDVD.com: UPDATE: While our (multiple) sources for the above information provided a title of "Glee - Season 1, Volume 2" for the follow-up release, emphasizing another half-season set, we've quickly received an e-mail from reader Amber Bewley characterizing this information as "incorrect". She points us to a Variety story that is almost a month old (but which nobody had previously made us aware of). In that story, writer Michael Schneider says that Fox "plans to release another DVD containing the show's full first season (emphasis is ours) sometime in mid-2010." Schneider's Variety story goes on to explain that the December 29th release of Glee - Season 1, Volume 1 will come enclosed with a voucher, which "can be used toward purchase of the full season box set." The method for how this voucher would be redeemed was not described; please read the story at the above link for all the available details. We should emphasize that this does NOT match the info we received from our contacts earlier today; we'll double-check with them tomorrow and see if they have been given any info from the studio about a full-season set. It COULD be that both types of packages will be offered, but that's just a possibility worth mentioning. Link (tvshowsondvd.com) (edited by SchippeWreck on 16.12.09 1610) "It's magic! We don't need to explain it!"
