Weekly DVD Picks – Tuesday, September 27, 2005

September wraps up with a couple of notable items
before the big winter deluge.

First, the genre releases:

Now, the non-genre releases:

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,
and Quantum
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.

    Something not in the list…
    …and being released on Tuesday is Family Guy Presents Stewie Griffin – The Untold Story. I know I’m definitely planning to pick this up as soon as I can.

      Hey, is this actually something new or just a collection of Stewie-central episodes of Family Guy?

        It’s new, though apparently it’s been available online for some time, as several of my friends have already seen it. I was under the impression, from what they told me, that it was a movie, though reading the amazon description it seems to be 3 (uncut) episodes that haven’t aired on TV, and it’s unclear if they will be at some point or if they will remain just a dvd release.

          The one that’s online is entirely new. It’s 1.5 hours long, and doesn’t have any ‘extras’ or credits. It is kinda funny. It does recycle a joke or two from the show, but they’re minor. One question, though (spoiler!!):

          The ending was too abrupt, and cheapened the whole, thing, IMO. Stewie kills his ‘near-future self’? Bah.

    Huh?
    I’m… fairly sure I already have The Complete Flying Circus… I also have the two Live DVDs… basically this is those two wrapped together?…

    I used to love Due South. going to have to buy all of those one of these days.

      That’s what it looks like, though a price reduction came
      along with the repackaging.
