Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “I usually make it a rule that I don’t recommend titles I haven’t seen, but given the spectacular quality of Supernatural‘s first four seasons, I’m comfortable recommending season five even though I haven’t seen it yet.” Alex says, “Full Metal Panic is one of the best modern mecha anime series. If you haven’t gotten it already, I really can’t think of a good reason not to get it now.”

  1. Is the Blue-ray Forbidden Planet release, the same as the HD transfer, from a couple years ago? The Amazon listing didn’t give much details.
