"I tell ya, the things that fall off of me... it's embarrassing!"
There are days when I think I'll never find time to watch all the cool stuff I've got access to (not to mention the few video games I've got), but then a weekend comes along and we blow out a bunch all at once. It just hasn't happened recently. Oh well...if that were the biggest issue facing me or anyone else, it would be pretty sweet.
So, with that lame statement aside, here's this week's DVDs.
The Amazing Race: The First Season Get those reality shows onto DVD while they're hot. Seriously, who buys stuff like this on DVD. I can understand why people watch them when they're on or even renting them, but is this the kind of thing (and this is supposed to be one of the better shows) that you'll return to years from now?
Anything Goes (1956)
Bad Timing (1980) Criterion issues the Art Garfunkel film...wacky!
The Beverly Hillbillies: Ultimate Collection Volume 1 Even though I would be happy never seeing this show again, I've gotta feel a little sorry for its fans since there's never been anything other than "best of" sets released for this one; no season sets. Are there rights issues or is the company who owns it a bunch of jackasses...?
The Complete Monty Python's Flying Circus 16-Ton Megaset This is basically the same box set of the series that came out before. It has a couple of small bonuses, but costs the same. It's all great stuff of course, but without new transfers or significant extras, it's a big yawn.
Evil Dead 2 (Book of the Dead Limited Edition) Another reissue of the cult/comedy/horror flick...
Gilmore Girls: The Complete Fourth Season
Hogan's Heroes: The Complete Second Season
The Man Who Fell To Earth The Bowie cult classic arrives via Criterion.
Oliver! DVD and CD Gift Set A reissue of the film that won best picture the year I was born...now with bonus soundtrack CD.
Star Trek: Enterprise - The Complete Third Season
