Hello Everyone,

Another big TV release week: Black Donnellys S1, Charmed S8, Forever Knights S2, Friday Night Lights S1, Grey's Anatomy S3, Gunsmoke S1, I Shouldn't Be Alive S1, Las Vegas S4, Slings and Arrows S2, Supernatural S2, and Two and a Half Men S1 (written by Urbana's own, Mark Roberts). This week we missed out on Bones S2 but should have it here tomorrow or the next day -- sorry about that. We also finally got Michael Haneke's "The Castle", two new Criterion titles (Night on Earth and Stranger than Paradise), and the indie release "Ten til Noon" -- featuring a brief appearance by former Caffe Paradiso employee Erin Stutland.

Hi-def scorecard: 65 HD-DVDs w/37 rentals vs 63 BluRay-DVDs w/32 rentals. In a surprise burst of activity, BR is rapidly gaining ground on HD -- by next week HD may be left in the dust. This week rumors were flying around that Warner Brothers was working on an exclusive deal with HD (much like Paramount did a few weeks ago) but the folks at Digital Bits (www.digitalbits.com) assure us no such thing is happening. I'm hoping that once the multi-format players come out (and are affordable) some of the hubub will die down.

Essential Art House Films Update: It's a Bergman two-fer -- last week's film was Ingmar Bergman's "The Seventh Seal" and this week's film will be Ingmar Bergman's "Wild Strawberries". 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)
