Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “we have a very dead list of releases this week. If you have Blu-Ray and don’t have it already, get Apollo 13. If you don’t have Blu-Ray and don’t have it already, get the Great Mouse Detective.” Blaine says, “go with the Essential Art House set, or one of the individual releases of its contents.”

  1. If you’re looking for other ideas for some (most-likely) unappreciated work, you could make the titles of each item a link to a description of the item.

    EG: I have never heard of Alias Smith and Jones, so I Wiki’d it, and got a quick answer.

    Unless there’s some script you’ve already got that would do that for you, I can’t see it being worth the effort, though. Most of the items would never be clicked.
