Holy shit what a packed week! TV shows galore, plus all the other usual goodies. With the kids back to school its time for the adults to watch some DVDs!
Supernatural The Complete Fifth Season was supposed to be it for the show. But it wasn’t. Tune in next season for the shark jumping but stick around on this set for the Apocalypse.
Smallville The Complete Ninth Season throws the no capes no costumes rule of the first years and throws it through the window. A Justice Society of America meeting window. Plus all your expected relationship dramas.
Criminal Minds Fifth Season is the latest in TV’s only horror crime drama. This show has gone places, gross disturbing places, that other shows wouldn’t dream. Probably not a good show to watch late at night. What was that sound?
The 4 Complete Ed Sullivan Shows Starring the Beatles. Recorded history. You can take your Bieber and boy bands and Tiger Beat magazines. This is all that and more. Bigger than Jesus? An unwise thing to say for sure, but at the time that didn’t mean it wasn’t true.
Its Doctor Who time!
A strange signal from Earth draws the TARDIS to the island of Lanzarote, where Turlough rescues a young American girl, Peri, from drowning. Among her possessions is an artifact bearing an alien symbol – the same triangular mark that Turlough has branded into his arm. The mystery deepens when Kamelion falls under the control of a powerful mind, and the TARDIS travels to the volcanic world of Sarn. As Turlough is forced to face his past, the Doctor must stop his oldest enemy from harnessing the revitalizing powers of Numismaton gas.
Doctor Who The King’s Demons (Story 129) The Peter Davison years.
England, March 1215. King John is visiting the castle of Sir Ranulph Fitzwilliam. The arrival of the TARDIS disturbs a medieval joust, but the Doctor and his companions are proclaimed to be friendly demons by the King, who seems strangely interested in their “blue engine.” It soon becomes clear that neither King John or his Champion, Sir Gilles Estram, are who they pretend to be. One of the Doctor’s oldest and deadliest enemies threatens the future of democracy on Earth, and he must be stopped!
Doctor Who The Creature from the Pit (Story 106) The Tom Baker years.
On the planet Chloris, metal is scarce, and without metal for tools, it is impossible to keep the planet’s fecund jungle under control. When the TARDIS is forced to make an emergency landing on Chloris, the Doctor is captured by the power-hungry Lady Adrasta, who controls the very last metal mine on the planet, holding onto power through her Huntsmen and Wolfweeds. Romana is taken prisoner by rebel bandits, looking for some way of getting their hands on Adrasta’s wealth. If K9 had feelings, he would have much to fear. Made of metal, he is a valuable commodity indeed. As if the situation were not bad enough, something is lurking in the pit of the last mine.
This has been your regularly scheduled Doctor Who break. Now back to the column.
Forbidden Planet comes out on Blu Ray! High-def Robby!
MacGruber! He’s on DVD now! MacGruber! No one saw it in theaters, so see it here for the first time! MacGruber! Starring many WWE Superstars! MacGruber!!!
Bugs Bunny Howl-oween is not worth the money. From 1978, the twilight years of Looney Tunes, this DVD is only 28 minutes with a suggested price of $15. Yeah, no. I can probably find the whole thing for free.
Did you see that?! That has to be one of the strangest, most over the top Bugs Bunny cartoons ever. Sold.
RIP OFF OF THE WEEK!
Lost in the Barrens. Which is very obviously using the LOST font and logo to fool people into buying this movie.
UFC Presents the Best of WEC. Lighter weight guys fighting. Lot of good fights on here. Faber, Pulver and many more.
Growth is a very good looking creepy experiment gone wrong movie. Secluded island, lots of nasty creatures, nice amount of gore and we got the horror movie of the week.
A Call Girl (previously called Slovenka (Slovenian Girl)) is my surprise of the week. While it may be the usual tragic story of a prostitiute movie, the exotic locations and language punch it up that extra spot.
