New TV on DVD releases this week

Ricky GervaisHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I always find it amusing that a lot of standup specials and documentaries are released on DVD just a day or two after they're shown on television. Jim Gaffigan: King Baby premiered this past Sunday, and here it is for sale on DVD. I guess you could have just taped it (sorry, "recorded it"), though I'm sure there are extras on the DVDs you don't get on the TV special.

I'm just happy Volume 5 of Hannah Montana is out!

Here's the thing about the short interval between broadcast and DVD release for stand-up shows, at least those that play on Comedy Central. CC essentially uses the broadcast as an ad for the DVD. They have "available on" bugs during the show itself and run full-blown "this is what else you'll get if you buy it" ads during the breaks. So naturally, they're going to run it as close to release as possible.

Looks like The IT Crowd, Ricky Gervais and probably Jim Gaffigan are going on my to-buy list this week.

California Dreams!? I remember that show from years ago, still remember the theme song. I may have to pick that up at some point.
