Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “I haven’t seen the strong contenders this week, but Psych: Season Four and Film Noir Classics Collection Vol. 5 are both must-own titles.” Alex says, “I haven’t seen anything this week, so I can’t make an official pick. However, Black Cat and In Bruges are definitely going to find their way into my Netflix queue.”

One reply

  1. +1 for Psych, and White Collar is also pretty good (though some episodes are better than others)

    My wife wants to see Chloe, that’s getting dropped into our Blockbuster queue.
