New arrivals for the week of October 1, 2013
The Croods
Fright Night 2
The Frozen Ground
This is the End

Greetings everyone,

Sorry, I got a late start on the update this week. Let's get right to it... This week's biggest new titles include: "The Croods" (animated; w/voices of Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, etc), "Fright Night 2" (w/Will Payne, Jaime Murray and Sean Power), "The Frozen Ground" (w/Nicolas Cage, Vanessa Hudgens and John Cusack), "This is the End" (w/Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen and James Franco). Lots of TV stuff, too: Beauty & the Beast S1, Big Bang Theory S6, Glee S4, Homeland S2, How I Met Your Mother S8, New Girl S2, Revolution S2 and Supernatural S8. From across the ocean we got: Jack Irish S1 (w/Guy Pearce) and Maigret S9 (and S6 since we missed that one somehow; but, we now have everything available). You can check out this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

The TV section is one of the most popular sections at Rentertainment -- second only to the General section. Since we have each title listed by season, if we did a straight Top 100, the list would consist primarily of seasons Breaking Bad, True Blood, and The Wire. Instead, the listing is by title and where the first instance of that title appears on the Top 100 listings. So, here are the Top 100 Television shows (actually Top 104 because there was a tie towards the end) from the past year...
(Note: This list does not include TV shows in found in the British Television, Science Fiction, Doctor Who, MST3K, or Star Trek sections)
1 GAME OF THRONES
2 HOMELAND
3 MAD MEN
4 TRUE BLOOD
5 BREAKING BAD
6 NEWSROOM, THE
7 DEXTER
8 BOARDWALK EMPIRE
9 HOUSE OF CARDS
10 SOPRANOS
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
