Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “Just to stick with what I have seen before, I’m going to go with Bizet’s Carmen. It’s a very nicely done production that I was particularly impressed with. Slayers Revolution and Evolution R will be going in my Netflix Queue.” Blaine says, “similarly, Charade is the title I can strongly recommend based on past viewing. However, given the strength of the first season, Castle: Season Two is a must-own title for me.”

  1. Fez says:

    +1 for Castle Season 2 here. Also, How I Met Your Mother is surprisingly enjoyable for a sitcom. (And stars Alyson Hannigan, among others)

    I didn’t realize Mythbusters was up to vol. 6. They release the oddest sets, it seems. I’d much prefer full seasons.

  2. Damien says:

    Another +1 for Castle.

  3. Jethro says:

    Just want to mention that Spartacus: Blood and Sand was pretty good, except for the CGI blood (‘real’ fake blood I’m OK with). I mean we waited HOW long to see Lucy Lawless naked? Plus it was pretty decent drama.

  4. I overlooked the Gamera double features. Those also might end up in my Netflix queue – just so I can watch them with the Japanese dub.

  5. sjaskow says:

    Another +1 for Castle.

    For those of us in the US, season 3 starts tonight at 10 EDT on ABC!
