New arrivals for the week of August 18, 2009


Greetings everyone,

Things are starting to pick up on campus... there are more people milling about, more traffic, and longer waits for lunch. It's not all bad, though. Our weekly box of new titles is getting bigger and bigger. This week there's a whole lot of new TV stuff: 90210 S1 (that's the new series), The Beast S1, Designing Women S2, Dexter S3, Eli Stone S2, Everybody Hates Chris S2, Gossip Girls S2, Greek S3, Project Runway S5, and Sons of Anarchy S1; a few new documentaries: Becoming Family, Car of the Future, Edges of Existence, and Global Warming; and, everyone's favorite, another box of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

There were two new Criterion BluRay discs in the stack this week: Akira Kurosawa's "Kagemusha" and Jacques Tati's "Playtime". As Pat pointed out yesterday, with Criterion rapidly approaching the 20 BluRays available point (we think there are 17 so far) it might finally be time to get a BluRay player. That's why we all bought DVD players and laser disc players, isn't it? or was that just me...

Important info: Rentertainment is back to regular hours (M-Sa: 10-midnight, Su: noon to midnight), the dorms open this Thursday, Quad day is Sunday and classes start on Monday...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
