New arrivals for the week of September 4, 2012
The Five-Year Engagement
Piranha DD
Safe
Woman Thou Art Loosed: On the 7th Day

Greetings all,

I hope everyone is transitioning smoothly into the new semester -- we're trying to. You may have noticed a few new faces behind the counter, some new shelving in the store, and an even more overwhelming feeling of claustrophobia as you enter the store. That just means more and more films are getting packed in. Speaking of which, new arrivals this week include: "The Five-Year Engagement" (w/Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Chris Pratt and Alison Brie), "Piranha 3DD" (w/Ving Rhames, Katrina Bowden, Danielle Panabaker, Christopher Lloyd, etc), "Safe" (w/Jason Statham, Catherine Chan and Chris Sarandon) and "Woman Thou Art Loosed: On the 7th Day" (w/Blair Underwood, Sharon Leal, Nicole Beharie and Pam Grier). Kino continues their excellent re-issue series with this week's release of Buster Keaton's "The Navigator". Everything they've done so far is great! There was all sorts of new TV stuff in this week's box: Criminal Minds (S7), Good Wife (S3), Grey's Anatomy (S8), Haven (S2), Office (S8), and Parks and Recreation (S4) -- and even more we got back-ordered on but should be here soon (2 Broke Girls, Fringe, How to Make it in America, Hung and Person of Interest,). "Holy Flying Circus" is a docudrama about the period immediately after Monty Python's "Life of Brian" was released and the uproar it caused -- worth watching if for no other reason than to see the BBC interview with Cleese, Palin, the Bishop of Southwark and Malcolm Muggeridge. Check out this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

Instead of the usual Top 100 listing for the TV section, I thought I would just rank them in order of their first appearance on the list (i.e. if each season Community showed up in three places I only show the highest ranking). Note: This list does not include TV shows in found in the British Television, Science Fiction, Doctor Who, MST3K, or Star Trek sections. So, here is everything that has rented in the TV section (199 shows) in order of popularity:
1 GAME OF THRONES
2 BOARDWALK EMPIRE
3 DEXTER
4 BIG BANG THEORY
5 THE WIRE
6 BREAKING BAD
7 TRUE BLOOD
8 THE GOOD WIFE
9 TREME
10 FRINGE
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Search engine update: A few tweaks have been made to the search engine... multiple instances of the same title no longer appear, the most relevant results show up first, and we can now update the database easily. More changes coming soon -- I'll be sure to keep you posted. As always, please let us know if you run into any problems and/or have any suggestions.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
