Sanctuary‘s first season out on DVD September 15, 2009. The Movie Network just keeps cranking out watchable CanCon. SPACE will re-air the series this fall, so it’ll shill the box set like it’s manna from heaven. I’m actually looking forward to Sanctuary.
The final season of Stargate Atlantis is out June 30, 2009, while the recut Stargate SG-1 pilot is out July 21, 2009. Stargate Universe is around the corner, so these releases might never end. At least Stargate exhibits better quality control than Star Trek.
Amazon.com is taking pre-orders for The Tudors‘ third-season set. If John Rhys-Meyers overacting is your thing, go right ahead.
Selected Inspector Gadget episodes out on DVD September 8, 2009 through 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. Inspector Gadget counts as CanCon due to the Nelvana connection. Global only aired reruns for a zillion years.
Canadian Connection® of note: Cookie Jar currently owns the rights to Inspector Gadget. Inspector Gadget was DiC’s most recognizable character. The company formerly known as CINAR ate DiC in 2008. So far, Cookie Jar hasn’t whored Gadget out like DiC did. Give Cookie Jar go go Gadget time.
Two Goosebumps releases, “The Headless Ghost” and “Attack of the Jack-O-Lanterns,” out September 8, 2009 through 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. With box art!
Road Hockey Rumble complete series set out July 1, 2009 through Paperny Films.
You’d think that was a joke, but the complete series of Our Hero goes for $4.99 at GT. Our Hero was sold in 2006 the same way Road Hockey Rumble is now. Think about it.
DVD Talk’s Paul Mavis reviews Murdoch Mysteries‘ first-season set as well, but Mavis is snarkier than Swindoll about it. At least Acorn Media is getting its press. Like Acorn Media employees are going to complain about making more money.
