Comments Alex: In the future, a totalitarian government has outlawed music due to it’s power over people. Only one group of brave freedom fighters can stand against this cruel force – the warrior/musicians of AKB0048. This show is a vehicle for the J-Pop group AKB48, but it’s apparently way better then it has any right being.

Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “the Warner Bros. Thriller box set is 60% movies I love and 40% movies I’ve been meaning to see. It’s an easy choice.” Alex says, “I’m going with Mystery Science Theater 3000 The Movie on Blu-Ray. It’s not the best of MST3K, but it’s not terrible either, and it’s certainly one of the best new releases this week”
