"You'll never kill anyone if you go around thinkin'."
Greetings all. This is a pretty light week, as far as major hits and big classic re-releases so let's get right to it with this week's crop of DVDs (I'll thow some HD stuff in at the end just for grins):
Columbo: The Complete Fifth Season
Commander In Chief: The Inaugural Edition - Part 1 This now-cancelled show, which some wingnuts thought was an attempt by "liberal" Disney to promote Hillary Clinton's 2008 run, is being released in two sets adding up to one season; this one contains the first ten episodes. The good part about this is that apparently the show went south in mid-season. However, I would think that anyone who is fond enough of it to buy it would want the whole thing. It's probably an excuse to get extra money for it.
Failure to Launch (2006)
Family Affair: Season One There was a time when I was growing up that this show was in heavy circulation on TV (reruns, I'm not that old!). And then in the 80s, it dropped out of sight. Like many things I watched as a kid, it's probably better not revisited.
OLYMPIA -The LENI RIEFENSTAHL Archival Collection (1937) I think this marks the first complete release of this on DVD. It's funny, when I looked at it on Amazon, it suggested Brokeback Mountain as an alternative!
Project Runway: The Complete Second Season
And here's the hi-def roundup for this week:
Crash (Blu Ray)
Lethal Weapon (HD-DVD) Man, I've been wanting to see this in HD since...uh, what was I talking about???
Lord of War (Blu Ray)
The Punisher (Blu Ray)
Saw (Blu Ray)
Terminator 2 (Blu Ray) OK, this one makes sense.
Ultraviolet (Blu Ray) Wow, they managed to squeeze out a hi def title the same day as the DVD.
