    *** Official V FOR VENDETTA Discussion Thread

    Saw the film last night. I couldn't really judge what the rest of the audience thought, but my friends and I all thought it was great.

    Arrested Development - The Final (?) Season Announced

    I guess a quicker dvd release is the one good thing about cancellation. I'll be anxious to get this as I missed a few episodes this season do to the fact that you never knew when it was going to be on or not for a few months there.

    Star Trek: Borg - Fan Collective... first details

    I might pick this up. Most of the star trek seasons contain a few more episodes than other shows, but if they want to turn new fans on to the franchise, the prices should be in line with other series. I've noticed prices on the earlier sets coming down a bit. Combine that with these theme sets...

    Soderbergh's "Bubble" in January

    Soderbergh was on NPR today talking about the picture and the release strategy. A small film like this would probably not be in the local theater for a lot of people anyway so I can see the logic here with something like this rather than a big studio picture. Soderbergh's reasoning though was...

    Current fall season--which shows will you buy on DVD?

    As far as new shows, I think Rome has been the best and I'll probably buy that. Also, Prison Break is worth owning. I've been enjoying Reunion, but I don't think I'll want to own it, though the format of the show makes me feel like it would be better to experience on dvd in a few sittings if...

    Arrested Development season 3 thread

    Apparently, they still have five episodes to shoot, so hopefully they'll be able to give the show some conclusion. Even with low ratings, all the positive press the show gives Fox, plus the good dvd sales, you would think would make it worth keeping around. If The War at Home makes it through...

    First Wave on DVD?

    I remember I used to watch it when it was first on scifi, debuting alongside Farscape. I don't think I saw any of the last two seasons though. Might be nice to catch up.

    Interesting article on the state of TV shows' running times, commercials, DVD, etc.

    that is an interesting article. I guess I agree that one of the reasons Lost seems to have so many commercials is because it is so gripping and maybe you're not as annoyed when even a good family sitcom cuts to commercial. Still, nobody likes that the ammount of commercial time is steadily...

    Once and Again

    I picked up season 2 when it came out and was pretty happy with it. I thought they were never going to put it out. They improved on the first season release by making it cheaper and adding a commentary by the creators. I didn't notice any problems with the discs, so I wouldn't worry about...

    *** Official SERENITY Discussion Thread

    I enjoyed this movie immensely and plan on seeing it again before it leaves theaters. My girlfriend just got back from a month-long trip and I promised to get her to a theater this week so she could see it. I really am amazed Joss Whedon got this movie made. Given the second week box office...

    Massive Discounts on Warner Brothers DVD Boxed TV Sets

    I'm glad I heard about this deal before it was over. I picked up Smallville season 1 and Nip/Tuck season 1. The shelf tag said Smallville season 2 was on sale for the same price as well, but my Target seemed to be out of stock.

    Veronica Mars Season 2

    I caught up with this show over the summer and really enjoyed it. One of the best shows on tv. Unfortunately, I haven't seen the second season eps yet because my friends and I are all addicted to LOST, so I'll probably end up waiting for the dvds or catching the reruns. Kind of a bone-headed...

    Notice anything strange on the Space: Above and Beyond main menus?

    this is too funny! I'm planning on picking this set up soon, to be honest I hadn't realized it was already out. Perhaps later this week.

    Reunion - ongoing thread

    Fox does usually seem to come out with the most interesting concept shows each season, though they don't always stick with them. Let's hope they they keep this one on through all twenty episodes or there'll be some pissed off viewers. As far as the first episode, I thought it was pretty...

    Would You Buy A Series Out of Order?

    yeah, i started voyager with season 2. If it was a show i hadn't already seen all the episodes of, i would never do that, but for shows like that or buffy and angel, which i've seen most episodes multiple times, sometimes i just buy the season i feel like watching most. that said, it is...

    Packaging Overkill: Or when the package is so nifty you can't get to the discs.

    Unfortunately, when people try to make the package look cooler, it often ends up making it harder to get to the dvds. While I'm glad we don't see the fold-out packages like on buffy or the alien quadrilogy too much anymore, we still end up seeing a lot of experimentation with packaging that...

    Beast Wars Season 3

    I'm looking forward to owning beast machines. I thought it was a worthy successor to beast wars and I've been enjoying rewatching those as they have come out on dvd. I know some people thought beast machines was a little weak, but I imagine after sitting through things like robots in disguise...

    Sky High Review

    My girlfriend and I saw this yesterday and really enjoyed it. Family films that actually are fun for adults are rare and we found ourselves laughing throughout at all the superhero jokes. Sure the plot is straight out of every teen movie ever made. That's the point, it's part parody that loves...

    Bakshi's "Fire and Ice" - 8/30

    I haven't seen this one, but I was very happy with the Wizards dvd, so I think I will check this out when it comes out. The interview with Bakshi on the Wizards dvd was great, both funny and very informative. I hope there's something similar on this.

    If studios released TV shows in their full seasons for download .....

    Isn't there already a service that let's you pay to download movies? I got an e-mail from Entertainment Weekly a few months ago with a free pass for it, but couldn't use it because they can't download to mac. What if their model was applied to tv episodes?

    Gargoyles DVD news

    I can't wait for season 2. I was pretty enthused to finally have the season 1 set. Is there any information as to how they're breaking these up though? If it's all of season 2, then that would have make it a bigger set than season 1.

    Sin City -- barebones edition in August?

    This is definitely a movie that NEEDS to come with some sweet extras on the production. I think we all wish they would just get it right the first time, but as with Kill Bill, they're hoping we'll be willing to buy it twice. As much as I want to own this, I'm going to wait for a special edition...

    Battle Royale at Netflix?

    I've heard it's the starmax edition, which you shouldn't be disappointed with. I bought that version quite a while ago and am pretty happy with it. A lot of people were surprised Netflix was carrying it, since they never seemed to carry non-region 1 dvds before. My guess is they were just...

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: Pocahontas 2-disc 10th Anniversary set, OUTSTANDINGLY RECOMMENDED

    After the incredible revival of Disney animation starting with the Little Mermaid, I remember this picture as being something of a disapointment, the beginning of a decline. The animation style is beautiful and I think it might be worth picking up on the strength of that, but the story and...

    EARTH 2 (Street Date 7/19/05) (contains spoilers)

    This is great news. I think this series is due a second look on dvd.

    The Shield - Season 4 ongoing thread (merged)

    All I know is Dutchboy must have some sort of Death Wish to be pulling what he's doing.

    Will Ferrell to star in "Land of the Lost" film

    I think a land of the lost movie would be cool, but finding out they're taking a comedy angle totally turns me off. Will Ferrell is funny, but Land of the Lost should be a fun family action film, not a vehicle for a comedian. Perhaps something more like what the Lost in Space movie was trying to be.

    Finally! Once & Again Season 2

    I saw Amazon's got Once & Again Season 2 listed for August, which is awesome. I remember when Buena Vista released the first season a couple years ago the same day as the first season of Felicity. The Felicity releases kept on coming, but I guess Once & Again didn't sell well because even a few...

    Paramount's big 3...I'm really surprised...

    Paramount does have some catching up to do in regards to tv releases. I second the hope that they will be more in line with the price of releases from other studios rather than the price of the trek sets.

    Shows in my collection which I am doubtful will be entirely released.

    The only show I have that seems completely dead on dvd is Once & Again. Buena Vista released season 1 the same day they released the first season of Felicity. While the latter is now out in its entirety, O&A has never had a S2 announcement. MST3K and Showtime's Outer Limits are two that I...
