New arrivals for the week of January 22, 2008
 

Hello Everyone,

"The Mod Squad" has finally come out on DVD... and not the crappy movie (although that is available) but rather the excellent 60s/70s TV series (starring Michael Cole, Clarence Williams III and Peggy Lipton). Presumably all five seasons will eventually become available. For the past few days I've been watching "Hustle: Season Four" (starring Robert Vaughn of Napoleon Solo fame) -- as soon as I am done with it you can watch it. I think it's great fun! Also, "Torchwood: Season 1" has arrived. It's a spin-off of the new Doctor Who. Did you know that Torchwood spelled backwards is... no, that's not it, maybe it's upside down... nope. Anyway, it's supposed to be good. And, we can finally put the Golden Girls to rest -- season seven (the final season) is now available on DVD.

If the on-line chatter is any indication, HD-DVD is officially dead and BluRay has triumphed. Toshiba is jettisoning the last of the players at half price (some are as cheap as $130 now), Best Buy has announced they will be scaling back HD shelf space to make room for BluRay, and Universal and Paramount are reconsidering their support of HD and will be making major announcements to that affect in the next few months. I think if I were Toshiba I would throw in the towel and get cracking on a BluRay player pronto! We will continue to buy HD and BluRay as long as we can but it looks like someday the HD will be tucked away in a corner with the Beta tapes (and VHS for that matter) and Laser Discs...

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
