New TV on DVD releases this week

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 31st 2009 6:01PM
Doctor WhoHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I find myself buying more old shows on DVD than I do new shows. I have no interest at all in buying C.S.I., Desperate Housewives, Two and a Half Men, Brothers & Sisters, or Supernatural, and there are no classic shows being released so it looks like I'm going to save money (again) this week.

Heroes? I like the show well enough, but I just can't imagine I'm going to want to watch this season again. Maybe I'll get it at some point, just so I can make sure I have the whole series, but who knows.

New TV on DVD releases this week

Stargate DVDHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

How can there be so many DVDs released in one day and there not be one that I want to buy? I never got into Stargate, I don't want to own Dallas on DVD, ditto Reba, and I refuse to buy Walker Texas Ranger because a.) it's not very good, and b.) it replaced a show that I really loved in the early 90s. I enjoyed Benny Hill, but I don't know if I enjoyed it enough to own it. So it looks like I'm going to save some money this week.

Yeah, right. Like I won't find something to buy that was released a while ago.

  • Alvin & The Chipmunks - The Chipettes
  • Ben 10 Alien Force - Season 1, Vol. 2
  • The Benny Hill Show - Best of the Early Years
  • Captain and the Kings - Miniseries
  • Dallas - Season 10
  • House of Payne - Vol. 3

Animation Update: Cartoon Network's Upfronts - VIDEO

by Richard Keller, posted Apr 6th 2008 10:01AM

Batman returns (again) in a new team-up seriesClone Wars, Secret Saturdays, a teenager with a super watch, and yet another Batman cartoon. These are just some of the items that were announced at the Cartoon Network upfronts this past week. A presentation, mind you, that was attended by one George Lucas.

Lucas was there to promote the CN's pickup of the animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which many are expecting big things of. This series, which we told you about way back in May of last year, will continue the adventures of Obi-Wan, Anakin, and many others during the Clone Wars. According to Stuart Snyder, President and COO of Turner Animation, Clone Wars will be a game changer for the network and will be event viewing for kids as well as entire families. "Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be appointment television for everyone in the family", said Snyder

Animation Update: Legion of Super Heroes, Ben 10

by Richard Keller, posted Mar 22nd 2008 12:09PM

Take a good look, because these Legions of Super Heroes will be gone after this seasonTwo items of interest this week...

Warner Brothers Animation is confirming that this will be the last season for the Legion of Super Heroes, as production has halted for the Kids WB! series. There will be three more episodes of the series, with two of them being part of the series finale that will air sometime later this year. Replacing this series, on someplace other than Kids WB!, which ends its run this season, will be a new program entitled Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Whether this show will replace the current The Batman series, or where this show will air, has yet to be determined.

Ben 10 live-action movie wraps filming

by Kevin Kelly, posted Sep 18th 2007 2:07PM
Ben 10: Race Against TimeThe Cartoon Network announced today that they've completed work on the first live-action Ben 10 movie, Ben 10: Race Against Time. Directed by Alex Winter (yes, that same Alex Winter of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure fame), the adaptation of the hit kid's animated show stars Graham Philips as Ben, and Lee Majors as his Winnebago-driving Grandpa who accompanies Ben and sister Gwen on their many adventures.

If you're not familiar with Ben 10, then you're probably over the age of 12, don't have kids of your own, and/or aren't a comic-book loving, nerf-toy wielding, anime-watching geek. I probably fall into the latter category, because Ben 10 is one of my favorite animated shows. In fact, should I even be admitting out loud that I dressed up as Ben Tennyson for Halloween last year?

Cartoon Network developing animated and live-action Ben 10 movies

by Adam Finley, posted Feb 17th 2007 10:01AM

Ben 10The Cartoon Network series Ben 10, about a young boy who uses a mysterious device called the Omnitrix to change into different super heroes, is being developed into both a full-length made-for-TV animated movie, and a live-action movie, also presumably for television.

None of the reports from the Cartoon Network upfronts have any details on who will star in the live-action movie, or even what the movie will be about. I myself have never seen the show, though since I tend to spend a lot of time on animation blogs I've heard some good things about it. The show just seemed to be geared towards a much younger crowd, even though I can and have enjoyed cartoons not necessarily intended for grown ups. Do any of you watch it or have kids who watch it? Does a live-action version make sense?
