New arrivals for the week of August 5, 2014
divergent
God's Not Dead
Need for Speed
Oculus

Greetings everyone,

This week's biggest new titles include: "Divergent" (w/Shailene Woodley and Theo James), "God's Not Dead" (w/Kevin Sorbo and Shane Harper), "Need for Speed" (w/Aaron Paul, Dakota Johnson and Dominic Cooper) and "Oculus" (w/Karen Gillan, Katee Sackhoff and James Lafferty). The PBS Masterpiece Mystery show, "The Escape Artist", stars David Tennant (Doctor Who, Broadchurch, etc) as Will Burton, "a talented junior barrister of peerless intellect and winning charm who specialises in spiriting people out of tight legal corners". We also brought in a few new seasons of TV shows: Californication S7, Community S5 and The Saint S1 (this is the late 80s version w/Simon Dutton as Simon Templar, not the 60s version w/Roger Moore -- which we also have). And, from the way-back machine, we got "Phantom of the Paradise" (1974, dir: Brian De Palma, w/Paul Williams and William Finley) on BluRay and "Who is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe" (1978, w/ George Segal, Jacqueline Bisset, Robert Morley, etc) on DVD. Lastly, we got the "Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery" BluRay box set in: Season One, Season Two and Fire Walk With Me on 10 re-mastered BR discs with tons of extras! You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

Regular Summer Hours: Monday-Thursday 11-9, Friday-Saturday 11-10 and Sunday noon-8.

There isn't nearly as much screaming, swearing and crying in our Top Renting Cooking, Drinking & Nutrition Section Competition as there is on the Food Network shows, but it's fun to check in on occasionally anyway. The top renter is the documentary "Somm", about four sommeliers attempting to pass the prestigious Master Sommelier exam. Another wine documentary, "A Year in Burgundy", which follows seven wine-making families in the Burgundy region of France through the course of a full year, came in 2nd and celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey's "The F Word" rounds out the Top 3 with another of his exciting kitchen/chef cook-off shows. The rest of the list is the usual mix of America's Test Kitchen (and their sister show/publication, Cook's Country), Anthony Bourdain, Gordon Ramsey, and a few wine/beer shows (including my latest favorite, The Mind of a Chef). For more films about food, check out the Food Films section of our Pocket Pal. We've got a great selection of Cooking, Drinking & Nutrition Shows -- here are the ones that rented this past year:
1 SOMM
2 YEAR IN BURGUNDY: FILM ABOUT WINE
3 F WORD: GORDON RAMSAY: SERIES 01
4 MIND OF A CHEF, THE: SEASON 02
5 EL BULLI: COOKING IN PROGRESS
6 MIND OF A CHEF, THE: SEASON 02
7 OZ & JAMES' BIG FRENCH WINE...
8 AMERICA'S TEST KITCHEN:BEST BAKING RECIPE
9 BOURDAIN, ANTHONY: A COOK'S TOUR
10 BREAKFAST SPECIAL
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
