Hello Everyone,

It's a big TV release week: 30 Rock S1, Desperate Housewives S3, Dirty Jobs S1, Kitchen Confidential, Nip/Tuck S4, Office S3, Rules of Engagement S1, and Spongebob Squarepants S5. Somehow we missed Friday Night Lights S1 but should have it here tomorrow or the next day -- sorry about that. Lizzie Borden's 1985 movie about a day in the life of a group of prostitutes, "Working Girls", finally got it's DVD debut today. We also got David Loach's "The Wind That Shakes the Barley". Next week look for Michael Haneke's "The Castle" to finally arrive on DVD. Not a bad start to the new school year...

Hi-def scorecard: 61 HD-DVDs w/30 rentals vs 62 BluRay-DVDs w/17 rentals. A $73 price cut by Amazon catapulted Toshiba's HD-A2 HD DVD player to the top of the online retailer's bestseller list of electronics. The second-generation high-definition player is now selling for $226.88, down from $299.99 -- but, if you wait until Christmas, Venturer Electronics will be releasing a Chinese made machine for $199. And, don't forget, these machines will all play regular DVDs as well. Ohhhh... what to do?

Essential Art House Films Update: Last week's film was David Lean's Venitian romance "Summertime". This week's film will be Ingmar Bergman's "The Seventh Seal". In case you are interested, the latest review is always on Renter's front page with a link to the rest of the reviews below it.

Have a great week!

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
