Click the corresponding retailer for their ad for the week of August 31st to September 6th: Best Buy, Target & Circuit City. I’d say The Office: Season 4 is the big DVD release this (er, next?) week. Circuit City is still offering their exclusives at no extra charge.. but theirs isn’t all that great anyway. Basic editions of The Office: Season 4 will go for $32.99 at both Circuit City and Best Buy, while Target will have it a bit lower at $29.99. Circuit City will include a “stapler in jello mold” keychain with their copies. See what I mean? ..Meanwhile, Target will have a Deluxe Edition with added notepad and possibly a bonus disc for $36.99, while Best Buy will once again be offering their boxed gift set (this time with Fun Run T-shirt. water bottle and wristband) for $42.99. Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow (the Teen Titan wannabes) will be on sale for only $14.99 at Target and Best Buy. Target offers their usual digital comic CD-ROM, while Best Buy will have an actual Avengers comic book. Circuit City will offer it for only $12.99, while all previous Marvel Animated Features (Invincible Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Ultimate Avengers & Ultimate Avengers 2) will be just $4.99 each..

Supernatural: Season 3 has a couple exclusives as well. Target has it for $37.99 with a calendar, while Best Buy is offering a Chevy Impala model with their copies for $39.99. Cool. Circuit City has the cheaper price again though — $36.99.. The Transformers: Two-Disc Special Edition is back out in stores next week, with transforming Megatron packaging.. to match the Optimus Prime version released exclusively at Target last year. Psh. Circuit City will have the cheapest price for that: just $17.99. Target will have it for $19.99. All three are staying firm on the Blu-ray debut of the 2-disc set though — all have it for $27.99. Not bad, but I’ll probably wait until it gets even cheaper. Just look at those $14.99 Blu-rays in Best Buy’s ad. Great to see them get so low, now they just need that price (or lower) on a title I’d actually want. :p

DVDActive has new details about The Incredible Hulk‘s upcoming DVD & Blu-ray release. As stated before, the DVD will come in one-disc bare-bones and three-disc special editions as well as a Blu-ray. A whole disc is wasted on a digital copy of the film, so don’t get all excited over the extra disc. :/ It’s set for release on October 21st, just about a month after Iron Man‘s DVD & Blu-ray release on September 30th..

BBC America has issued a press release with new details concerning the upcoming third season of Torchwood. Filming has begun on the five-episode mini-series/season titled Torchwood: Children of Earth. Looking forward to it.. Meanwhile, ABC has picked up five new series for the fall, including a second chance for past ABC series Cupid from Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas.. And CTV has ordered a second season of the hit CBS series Flashpoint, though CBS hasn’t signed on to air it in the US just yet.. TV Land just continues to try and catch up to current TV, throwing classic TV away in their vaults. A marathon of Scrubs is scheduled for Labor Day, September 1st. :/

I awoke in the morning before my alarm, which is odd because I went to sleep pretty late again last night.. I got online for a while, then prepared.. and headed out to media buy..

First, I headed to Target. If their Heroes: Season 2 – Target Exclusive Collector’s Edition DVD set didn’t have a bonus disc, I was going with the $8 cheaper basic edition. But luckily/unluckily, it does have a fifth bonus disc that features a 30min featurette on last summer’s Heroes world promotional tour. So *mine*. :p And here’s someone else’s pictures of this release.. Next, I went to Best Buy.. and managed to “buy” two free copies of the True Blood: Episode 1 promo disc all by themselves. Yay. My store didn’t have that many on the shelf though, so I’m glad I went instead of waiting over a week.

Then I.. passed on my icee.. and bought some more ice cream at the grocery store instead. They had gotten some new stuff that mixes cherry italian ice and vanilla ice cream. Wish the cherry ice was by itself though.. We returned home, then I got online to inventory etc etc.. I eventually returned and watched the last four episodes of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles – Season 1 (great episodes, the series really came together in the second half.. I’m sorta hoping next season is short like this one too, maybe 12-13 episodes.. makes it seem more like a movie on DVD.. the terminated scenes “scissors” icon after the episode title is handy, like those in the Smallville sets.. but the branched recaps that are turned off by default.. not so much.. and the extended episode wasn’t all that great either.. rather than finishing music and effects on the new scenes, they stripped the music and effects from all the episode’s scenes so they match up, including one scene where Summer Glau just stares a green screen -_-).

I returned to my room and got online to news-gather. We had some supper (the best we could anyway), then I finished up online by 8PM. But then I had to wait nearly 40 minutes for my dad to come back in from outside. *sigh* Then we watched America’s Got Talent and Wipeout (lol).. that that was it..?

See ya.
