Click the corresponding retailer for their ad for the week of July 27th to August 2nd: Best Buy, Target & Circuit City. I’m eyeing quite a few releases this week.. The only exclusive for Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay seems to be Best Buy’s three mini-posters with the $22.99 two-disc edition. Avatar: The Last Airbender – Book 3: Fire, Volume 4 is being released this week, featuring the final six episodes.. of Season 3, including Saturday’s epic two-hour finale. 🙂 Doomsday seems fairly priced, and Heroes: Season 1 is once again on sale at Target — for just $18.99.
The new release of Dark City: Director’s Cut is featured in none of the ads, but Best Buy has a $14.99 DVD price and a $24.99 Blu-ray price on their website. But now that I hear that the theatrical version is only included on the Blu-ray, my purchase of it is now up in the air. 😦 ..But the title I’m most looking forward to isn’t in any of the ads either — Freakazoid!: Season One. Best Buy’s site claims the 2-disc, 14-episode set is going for $24.99.
Circuit City is advertising the first three PlayStation 3 Greatest Hits titles in their ad this week: Warhawk, Motor Storm & Resistance: Fall Of Man — all for $29.99 each, with new red trim on the cover art and a clear red case (well, once your store runs out of the non-GH versions anyway). Out of these, I was only interested in Resistance.. until I played its demo. I don’t like FPS’s. Wake me when Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction is $29.99.. if I can wait that long to purchase it..
TVShowsOnDVD now has complete details and cover art for the October 7th DVD release of How I Met Your Mother: The Legendary 3rd Season. Wow @ all those extras. Can’t wait to own it.. Fox has also announced specs and (temporary?) cover art for October 21st’s DVD release of Family Guy: Volume Six, featuring just 12 episodes.. and a truckload of special features. That includes commentary on every episode, the 100th episode special, and 50 deleted scenes.
This isn’t much of a surprise, but I’m reporting it anyway. The “season-three finale” of Avatar: The Last Airbender pulled in the highest ratings ever for the series among its demographic. “The season-three finale, Avatar: Sozin’s Comet, was the number-one telecast on broadcast and basic cable television for the week of 7/14/08-7/22/08, averaging 5.6 million total viewers, up +195% over last
year’s like time period.” Nice. With Nickelodeon refusing to use the term “series finale” to describe it as well as these series-record ratings, you think they’re now begging the creators to bring it back in some form..? Heheh. :p
CBS has switched its two new drama series effective immediately. Swingtown will move from Thursday to Friday at 10PM, while Flashpoint will move to Thursday at 10PM. Flashpoint would make more sense after CSI than Swingtown does.. and Flashpoint is a way better series than Swingtown and deserves such a spotlight IMO. 🙂
I awoke in the morning and got online for a bit. Then watched a little morning TV before getting ready and heading out to media buy..
First, my dad wanted to go to this tour of the new stadium downtown. But because they’re offering tickets online at Ticketmaster for free, everyone wants to get them then sell them. The first time they offered the tickets, they sold out in under twenty minutes. Just think of all those people waiting in line downtown. They must’ve gotten 15-20 people before selling out. 😦 But they offered more tickets today. And due to the local news falsely claiming (for the second time) they were available at all Ticketmaster locations, my dad didn’t get any tickets..
We moved on to Best Buy, where I picked up Robot Chicken: Star Wars on DVD at last. She price-matched me down as if someone had already come in with the same ad though the place has just opened.. and also took my free X-Files tickets away. Damnit.. I got an icee, then my dad went somewhere before we returned home.
While my dad watched his news, I got online and discovered that those tickets had already run out again. The news said they sold out in under 20 minutes again too.. and some are already on eBay for like $35.. for free tickets. *rolls eyes* I eventually took over the TV and watched the Robot Chicken: Star Wars DVD (lol.. coool), followed by the first two episodes of The 4400: Season 4 (time to get this final season out of the way, I guess.. 😦 ), and last night’s The Middleman (this was my favorite episode yet.. and yes, it’s about aliens).
I found it difficult to pay attention though because my dad had brought in a mostly-black cat from outside. She acts very similar to the smaller cat we previously let into our home.. and looks the same. She was definitely looking better than she used to though. My dad fed him, but she doesn’t get along with our cat at all. Probably due to him being a male. My dad let him back out a few hours later and now she won’t leave our porch. You think my dad would learn this by now..
We had some supper, then I got online to news-gather. I finished up online by 8PM, then I watched Wipeout while my dad was outside. It’s been so long since I’ve experienced the comedy of John Henson. 😦 ..My dad eventually came in and we watched America’s Got Talent.. and that was about it………
It’s been a while since the first one.. due to so few downloading the first one, but here is Marvel’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Issue 2. I couldn’t find Issue 1, but do have 2-7.. See ya.
