Today is my birthday. I say that not to beg for birthday greetings — although I’d be down with a few — but because today’s DVD Day offerings are so lame that my birthday actually might genuinely be more interesting to you. I’m not too concerned, personally, because I believe my copy of Venture Bros. Season 3 and my long-awaited copy of Fallout 3 are arriving today as a birthday treat. Hope you guys are similarly occupied.
? The Real Ghostbusters Vol. 1
The one real gem of the week, a 4-DVD set of the cartoon for those who didn’t pony up for that massive firehouse box set. Contains 30 episodes and 3 hours of extras.
? The IT Crowd: Complete Season One
One of those hilarious British sitcoms about six people in America watch.
? Pok?mon: Giratina and the Sky Warrior
The new movie, which features both Giratina and the Sky Warrior. I know, I couldn’t believe it either.
? One Piece: Season One, Fourth Voyage
Okay, this contains the end of the best One Piece storyarc of the entire series (that I’ve seen), the Arlong saga. I swear I’m done pimping this series now, because only even less people are buying it than watching The IT Crowd.
As we discussed, this is an H.P. Lovecraft movie which actually stars Tori Spelling, and yet has not totally been despised by horror fans. Unsettling!
