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!

  • California Dreams - Seasons 1 and 2
  • The Fugitive - Season 2, Vol. 2
  • Goosebumps - Return of the Mummy and The Scarecrow Walks At Midnight
  • Hannah Montana - Vol. 5

Where are the Schoolhouse Rock singers now?

schoolhouse rockI'm just old enough to remember watching Schoolhouse Rock on ABC, and getting all those catchy but educational songs stuck in my head. The series of shorts that popped up between cartoons on Saturday mornings was conceived by Thomas G. Yohe and based on the simple idea that rock lyrics stick in kids' minds easily, so why not make them educational? The series has become one of the defining pop cultural icons of Generation X, and YesButNoButYes has a brief history of the series and the men and women behind it, complete with video clips. The piece mentions Jack Sheldon (the "I'm Just a Bill" guy) lent his voice to an episode of Family Guy, but it forgets to mention he was also the voice of the "Amendment To Be" in an episode of The Simpsons: "There's a lot of flag burners / who have too much freedom / I wanna make it legal for policemen / to beat 'em." It's a great bit of TV history, definitely worth checking out.

iTunes TV Shows Wave 3 (or is this 4?)

Some call me an idiot, some, an idiot savant. Both are unfortunately probably accurate descriptions (just ask C.K., Keith or Tom), but sometimes, I tend to get lucky. Let's take a trip in the wayback machine and go aaallllll the way back to October 13th 2005, when I asked you guys what shows you'd like to see in iTunes' music store. In that post, I said that I'd personally like to see some of Disney's classic 'toons available for download, and then in the comments we talked about how doing recaps of ABC/ESPN's Monday Night Football the day after the game would be a great idea. So, flash forward to today; if you check out the store, recaps of last night's Sugar and Fiesta Bowls are available. They also have schedules of when the other BCS games will be ready for you mobile sports nuts to download to your iPods. Also, according to iLounge, ABC is going to offer select animated shorts and films later this month.
