Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “Tootsie is always enjoyable, and you know Criterion will put together a fantastic release, but it’s
not a terribly strong recommendation. It’ll be some time before we see the release of another ‘must own’ title.” Alex says, “Fortunately, we do get a ‘must
own’ title this week – Cowboy Bebop is a show that all fans of animation and fans of science fiction should have in their collection.”
