The last week of the October glut is upon us, soon to be followed by the November glut. Later today: a Halloween review of “Them!” So much later today that it might actually be tomorrow: the “Spider-Man” chapter of the “History of the Marvel Universe” series.

First, the DVD releases:

Now, the Blu-Ray releases:

The HD DVD releases are as follows:

Finally, the pick of the week. It says a lot about the quality of the series that I’m choosing the repackaging of Angel over Spider-Man 3, considering how big a superhero fan I am. (I’ve read every issue of Amazing Spider-Man ever published, for example.) Joss Whedon’s show was always entertaining, and was constantly revising and redefining its cast and status quo. Wesley Wyndham-Price went through more character development in five years than I’ve seen (outside of Londo and Garibaldi on Babylon 5.) If you haven’t seen the series yet, give it a try, even if you didn’t watch Buffy. Some of the early episodes refer a lot to Buffy, but it started to stand on its own long before Buffy went off the air. Plus, it’s a series about a demon hunting vampire that hits the market the day before Halloween.
