The DVD pickings are a little slim this week.
First, the genre releases:
- 3rd Rock from
the Sun: The Best Episodes in the Universe: A “Best of” collection
for those who don’t want the complete seasons.
- The Chronicles
of Narnia – The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe: Bound to be a
- Garbage Pail
Kids – The Complete Series: I had completely forgotten they even
had a series.
- Knight Rider –
Season Four: This was the final season of the series.
- The Mel Brooks
Box Set Collection: Includes Blazing Saddles, Young
Frankenstein (which is why it’s in the genre list), Silent
Movie, Robin Hood: Men In Tights, To Be or Not to
Be, History of the World, Part One, The Twelve
Chairs and High Anxiety.
- The Science
Fiction Cliffhanger Collection: Three old sci-fi serials in one box.
- Tripping The
Rift – Season Two: This almost seemed interesting, until I learned
of Chuck Austen’s involvement.
Now, the non-genre releases:
Thunder: The Roy Scheider helicopter flick.
Mountain: One of this year’s big Oscar winners. Directed by Ang
Lee, who won for best director.
Lombard: The Glamour Collection: One of three well price glamour
collections out this week.
- Crash (2 Disk
Director’s Cut Edition): I bought the theatrical edition mere days
before this was announced. This won best picture at the Oscars this
- David Spade
Collection: In case you’re shopping for someone you really, truly
Creek: The Complete Sixth Season: Classic WB.
- Full House –
The Complete Third Season: The “David Spade Collection” too good
for the individual you’re shopping for? Get this instead!
- Mae West: The
Glamour Collection: The second collection in this line.
- Magnum P.I. –
The Complete Fourth Season: One of the best 1970s detective shows.
Dietrich: The Glamour Collection: The third such collection.
- Nine to Five –
Sexist, Egotistical, Lying Hypocrital Bigot Edition: Now that’s
got to be a more eye-catching title than “special edition.”
- The A-Team –
Season Four: Goes well with Knight Rider.
- The World’s
Greatest Lover: The Gene Wilder comedy.
Finally, the pick of the week. Of those that I’ve seen, Magnum
P.I. is the pick, though I suspect that might be different if I’d
found time to watch Crash by now.
