Is there anything worthwhile this Tuesday, or should you just give the new Superman a shot?
First, the genre releases.
- Banner of the Stars: Anime Legends Complete Collection Vol. 2: How complete can these be if there are multiple volumes?
- Chicka Chicka 2-Pack: If you have kids who need to learn their alphabet, get this.
- Cult Classics 20 Movie Pack
- Danger After Dark Collection: Three Japanese horror films.
- Galaxy Angel – The Complete Collection
- Galaxy High, Vol. 1: I never missed this series. Let’s see how well it holds up over time. The rest of the series will be released with volume 2 in July.
- Masters of Horror – John Landis
- Masters of Horror – Lucky McKee
- Tales of Terror 50 Movie Pack
- Ultraviolet (Unrated, Extended Cut)
Now, the non-genre releases.
- Acapulco H.E.A.T. Season 1
- Civilisation – The Complete Series
- The Color Honeymooners – Collection 1: Not colorized, but a colour set of episodes.
- Columbo – The Complete Fifth Season: Always a worthy purchase.
- Commander In Chief – The Inaugural Edition, Part 1: This only contains ten episodes.
- The Complete Sherlock Holmes Collection: The Basil Rathbone set.
- Failure to Launch: A romantic comedy from earlier this year.
- Family Affair – Season One
- Fear Factor – Season One: Just in case watching it once wasn’t enough.
- Monk – Season Four: Television’s second greatest detective is also getting another DVD release today.
- Project Runway – The Complete Second Season
- Queer as Folk: Final Season
- Roseanna – The Complete Fourth Season
- Slings and Arrows – Season One: I’ve heard nothing but great things about this Canadian series.
Finally, the pick of the week. I’ve got to go with Columbo myself, though the best Amazon.com reader reviews are for Slings and Arrows. (At this time, it’s got six reviews, all five star.) I don’t recommend what I haven’t seen, and I know Columbo is great.
