Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “I’m going with Stand Alone Complex Seasons 1 & 2 on Blu-Ray. I’m tempted to pick up the release of Tezuka’s Metropolis, if only to see the quality of the release, though I doubt it’s going to have much in terms of bonus features.” Blaine says, “I would go with Doctor Who or a Best Picture nominee.”
