DVD Day: April 17th, 2012



? Mission: Impossible: Ghost: Protocol
I’m not sure why I feel compelled to mention this movie in DVD Day. Because it has Simon Pegg? Maybe because of the spy gadgets? Because Leonard Nimoy was on the original series?

? Frozen Planet
Meanwhile, I have no problem listing any nature documentary narrated by David Attenborough.

? American Dad: Vol. 7

? Bob’s Burgers Season 1
I know I should give any cartoon in which H. Jon Benjamin and Kristen Schaal voice characters, but god help me I just can’t bring myself to watch Fox’s animation block.

? Young Justice Season 1 Vols. 1-3
It’s kind of like a complete season one set, except done in the most obnoxious way possible! On the plus side, it is only $14.

? The Legend of the Legendary Heroes
These guys are the legendariest heroes I’ve ever heard of.

? Ben 10: Ultimate Alien Ultimate Ending
In which the chestburster finally erupts through Ben’s sternum. I think.

? Conan the Adventurer: Season Two, Part 2

? The Super Hero Squad Show: The Infinity Gauntlet Vol. 3
I point this only only because I’m pretty sure it’s going to be the only time Beta Ray Bill is ever put on a DVD cover.

? The Amazing Bulk
Have you ever wished the Hulk was purple, and also the CG in his movies were made by “an 11-year-old with freeware”? Well, do I have good news for you…
