New arrivals for the week of March 5, 2013
The Intouchables
Playing for Keeps
Red Dawn
Wreck-It Ralph

Greetings everyone,

The biggest news of the week is Urbana's best kept food secret, Pizza M, is opening a full-on, sit-down restaurant in a few months -- maybe by June. Watch for it next to Siam Terrace (and get in line behind me). There have also been a few new movie titles released: "The Intouchables" (Omar Sy and Francois Cluzet), "Playing for Keeps" (Gerard Butler, Jessica Biel, Uma Thurman, Dennis Quaid, etc), "Red Dawn" (w/Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck, Josh Hutcherson, etc) and "Wreck-It Ralph" (w/voices of John C. Reilly, Jane Lynch, Jack McBrayer, Sarah Silverman, etc). Also worth a mention: "Gun Hill Road" (Esai Morales and Judy Reyes), "Heleno" (a docudrama about world’s first sports superstar) and "Unconditional" (w/Lynn Collins and Michael Ealy). On the British front we added Dalziel & Pascoe S5, Murdoch Mysteries S5 and the complete Thorne miniseries (based on the Mark Billingham books). This week's complete list of new arrivals is below.

If you've been in the store at all over the past 25 years or so, I'm sure you've noticed we've always had an unusually dedicated group of employees who love Star Trek. There are the movies, the original series, and of course all the various series that have come since. I would argue you should start with the original series and work your way through the pile chronologically but, they would probably suggest you start with ST:TNG and watch that over and over again. Either way, you'll have to dedicate at least a few weekends to the project if you're going to make it through them all. And, don't forget about the big Star Trek Convention in Chicago this year (May 31 - June 2) -- better prep by (re)watching some of these Top 100 Star Trek videos...
1 STAR TREK NEXT GENERATION: SEASON 4
2 STAR TREK NEXT GENERATION: SEASON 5
3 STAR TREK ENTERPRISE: SEASON 01
4 STAR TREK NEXT GENERATION: SEASON 6
5 STAR TREK NEXT GENERATION: SEASON 3

(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
