New TV on DVD releases this week

You're A Good Man, Charlie BrownHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I guess this is a good week to find out what type of TV fan you are. Are you going to be Callan or are you going to buy Bridget's Sexiest Beaches?

The only thing I might buy is the remastered edition of You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown. I can't remember the last time I saw it, but I've been on a Peanuts kick lately. Though it's a lot of singing and dancing (it's based on the classic Broadway musical) and I'm not sure if I can handle that.

  • Bridget's Sexiest Beaches - Season 1
  • Callan - Set 2
  • Dirty Jobs - Collection 5
  • Inspector Lewis - Complete Collection, Series 1 & 2

Carl Sagan: scientist, author, singer

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 29th 2009 2:30PM
I don't know where this "Autotuning" came from, but I like it. Sometimes it seems forced, but other times it's so spot on that it actually creates a good song and not just a goofy, funny curio.

The latest is from the PBS TV show Cosmos, something I really enjoyed years ago, and features Carl Sagan (with a cameo by another famous scientist and author). This is really well done, sort of techno meets progressive rock. I love how it's not just stringing his words together, but there's actually a chorus.

Here's one for Billy Mays.

There's also two DVD sets called TV Sets, which are a mix of various episodes of sci-fi shows (Star Trek, The 4400, Medium) and crime shows (Streets of San Francisco, Dexter, CSI: NY).

MST3K XVHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Finally, a DVD release that I'm definitely, definitely going to buy: the new MST3K set! I'm also looking at the new Peanuts set because I don't have a complete collection of their holiday specials, but there have been a few of these collections released, so I'll have to figure out which one is the best one.

  • Callan - Set 1
  • Doctor Who - The Rescue/The Romans and Attack of the Cybermen

Sat Morning CartoonsHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I'm not usually a big fan of these DVD box sets that take one genre and give you a variety of various series episodes (such as the sets that have a bunch of TV westerns in them). But the Saturday Morning Cartoon sets look like fun. The 1960s set includes The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Top Cat, Secret Squirrel, Atom Ant, and Quick Draw McGraw, while the 1970s set includes Josie & The Pussycats, Speed Buggy, the Batman/Tarzan Adventure Hour, and Hong Kong Phooey. OK, the 60s set is much better than the 70s set. And the 70s set for some reason also includes The Jetsons, which is odd (it ran in 1962). Still, both sets look good.

  • The Closer - Season 4
  • Designing Women - Season 1
  • Gangland - Season 3
  • Gunsmoke - Season 3, Vol. 2
  • Jeeves & Wooster - Complete Series

Make Room For DaddyHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Let's do something different this week. Which of these DVDs do you plan on buying? Let us know in the comments section.

I can't imagine buying any of these shows. The only two I might be interested in are Just Shoot Me (though I think it's one of those shows I'm happy just to see in reruns and not actually own) and Make Room For Daddy. But I would buy that just because it's a classic show, not because it's one of my favorites. It's one of those classic shows that I just never got into, unlike I Love Lucy or The Dick Van Dyke Show or The Honeymooners.

  • Breaking Bad - Season 1
  • Canterbury's Law - Complete Series
  • Cities of the Underground - Season 2
  • Dirty Jobs - Collection 4
  • Futurama - Into the Wild Blue Yonder
  • Girlfriends - Season 6
  • Just Shoot Me - Season 3
  • The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice
  • Make Room For Daddy - Season 6, Vol. 1
  • The Mighty B - Vol. 1
  • My Wife and Kids - Season 1
  • Oliver Twist - Miniseries
  • The Red Green Show - 2001 Season

New TV on DVD releases this week

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 13th 2008 6:02PM
Here are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Lots of complete series sets this week, including two you probably thought you'd never see, Quark and Ultraman. I have no nostalgic memories of Ultraman, but Quark was a show I enjoyed. It's also neat to see shows like The Shari Lewis Show or DVD.

I wonder why the Back To You set isn't a complete series set instead of just Season 1? Maybe it was already in production before the show was canceled.

  • Back To You - Season 1
  • CSI - Season 8
  • Charlie and Lola - Vol. 1-8
  • The Deputy - Best Of
  • Life with Derek - Season 1
  • Lil' Bush - Season 2
  • Lovejoy - Christmas Specials
  • Nash Bridges - Season 1
  • The Partridge Family - Season 3
  • Quark - Complete Series
  • Rules of Engagement - Season 2
  • The Sarah Silverman Program - Season 2, Vol. 1
  • Scott Baio is 45... - Seasons 1 and 2
  • The Shari Lewis Show - A Shari Lewis Christmas
  • SpongeBob SquarePants - Who Bob What Pants
  • Survivorman - Season 2
  • That 70s Show - Complete Series
  • Ultraman - Complete Series
  • The Unit - Season 3
