September wraps up with a couple of notable items
before the big winter deluge.
First, the genre releases:
Comforts – The Complete First Season: A collection
of shorts from
the creators of Wallace and Gromit.
Book of the Dead Edition: No picture is available,
but I assume
it’s a repackaging to match the “Book of the Dead”
edition of the
original Evil Dead.
Fell To Earth: Criterion treatment is always
Squarepants – The Complete Third Season: I’ve
tried to watch this
show, and just don’t understand the popularity.
Enterprise Season Three: Sci-fi for the remarkably
Mythology: Collection 3: Continuing the set of
titles that help
bring the total cost of the series down by reducing
the series to the
Now, the non-genre releases:
Season One: One of a disturbingly large number of
reality shows I
don’t particularly care for.
Hillbillies: The Ultimate Collection: 26 episodes
on a 4 DVD set.
Monty Python’s Flying Circus 16-Ton Megaset: The
entire series, in
one sizable box.
South: The Final Season: This Canada-only release
can be shipped
to the U.S. via Amazon.ca.
– Season Four: A well respected show.
Finally, the pick of the week. Due South was
a great series,
and one of the best series finales I’ve ever seen.
It’s not quite up
to the finales of Angel, Babylon 5,
Leap, but it’s incredibly well suited to the tone
of the series
that it’s a part of. Highly recommended. For those
who haven’t seen
the series, it’s about a mountie who is stuck in
Chicago. Imagine if
Clark Kent were a human police officer, and you’ve
pretty much got a
grip on the character.
