The DVD list is starting to taper off some, as many
people will have already started their Christmas
shopping. I’ve pre-written these columns for the rest
of the year; do you want them posted early, to plan
your own Christmas shopping, or would you prefer I
stick to the “one a week” schedule?

First, the genre releases:

Now, the non-genre releases:

Finally, the pick of the week. The Newsroom
was a great
series, that wasn’t intended to last more than a
season. There’s a
fabulous parody of Federico Fellini, and an incredible
amount of
subtle humour, centred around the head of the
Newsroom. There’s a
news anchor who is a complete and utter idiot, and a
number of other
interesting characters. Canadian comedy tends to be
offbeat, but this
hits the offbeat mark and is still highly
entertaining. The lines of
dialogue that end the season are some of the funniest
I’ve ever
heard. Highly, highly recommended.
