Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “If you can’t wait (or don’t want to wait) for the DVD or Blu-Ray, go with the Amazon Instant video release of Skyfall. Otherwise, I’d recommend Volume 4 of Animaniacs or Joseph Cambell: The Power of Myth.” Blaine says, “I also vote for Animaniacs this week, and Skyfall in your preferred format between Feb. 5 and 12.”
