51mInyjxrpL._AA240_.jpgI thought you might want to know what new DVDs are hitting Best Buy shelves, Target shelves, and Amazon.com’s non-existent cyber-shelves today, January 15th. You know, if case you had some money to burn.

? Family Guy Blue Harvest Star Wars Special
Comes in regular and highly unnecessary Special Edition, with a lot of shit.

? Dragonlance: Dragons of the Autumn Twilight
An animated adaptation of the high-school-nerd-classic Dungeons & Dragons novel, with the voices of Lucy Lawless and Kiefer Sutherland. Yeah.

? Bleach vol. 8
Anime on Adult Swim. Either you’ve been planning on buying it for a long time, or you don’t care.

? The Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin: Six Crystals
Contains episodes 1-20 of the animated series whose existence I clearly intentionally repressed.

? Biography: Chuck Norris
The A&E show takes on the man, the legend, the tired internet meme.

About Author

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
