I’m back from my vacation, which gave me time to catch up on my reading. Reviews to come later this week.
First, the genre releases:
- 3rd Rock From the Sun – Season Five

- Magilla Gorilla – The Complete Series
- Masters of Horror – Dario Argento
- Nightmare Worlds: Another 12 DVD set from Digital 1 Stop.
- Princess Natasha – Season One
- Scary Movie 4: The critic quoted on the cover claims it’s the best in the series. I’ve only seen the first one, but it shouldn’t be hard to be better than that.
- Surface – The Complete Series
Now, the non-genre releases:
- Apocalypse Now – The Complete Dossier: A two disk special edition of the Director’s Cut.
- Clark Gable Collection, Vol. 1: with The Tall Men, The Call of the Wild, and Soldier of Fortune.

Finally, the pick of the week.
I’ve got to go with the last two seasons of Remington Steele, which was an interesting approach to a televised mystery series.
