Best of Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventures: Animated TV Series
Amazon
  • DVD: US, CAN
Comments Blaine: The first iteration of the animated series lasted 21 episodes, and the second iteration lasted 8 (including the unaired pilot.) This collection includes 16 out of the 21 episodes from the original run. Don’t ask me why they chose this release pattern, since the first season was 13 episodes and the second was 8. How did they decide which 5 to leave out? Why not just do two season releases, or three discs for a complete series, or even four discs for both series if the rights are available?

Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, ” I’m going with Star Trek: Into Darkness as my pick, with Lupin III: A Woman Called Fujiko Mine as a very close second.” Blaine says, “I second the Star Trek Into Darkness recommendation if you go for the digital versions. If not, pick up the Hitchcock set, or just wait for the inevitable glut of great titles that comes through every September through November season.”
