Considering Tripping the Rift‘s third season was buried by both Teletoon and Sci-Fi, why didn’t Anchor Bay put out the complete third season to begin with? Why would anyone pay for the same lousy T’Nuk-is-ugly and Chode-McBlob-likes-Six-fucking-him jokes twice?
For those fans willing to rebut me with “you seem to know so much about the show” comments, I reviewed Tripping the Rift: The Movie and watched maybe five minutes of a few random episodes. You’re kidding me if you think the show has actual depth. What a waste of Stephen Root and Maurice LaMarche.
Super Dave’s Super Stunt Spectacular Volume 1 box art! I hate posting articles about box art, but the art’s fairly good here. I like the shark in the top-left corner.
Bob Einstein looks a bit sickly, though. I know he’s in his mid-sixties by now, but there’s something not right about the way he looks. If that’s airbrushing, sheesh, at least use an older Super Dave picture. He looks almost Roy-Orbison-in-1988 pancakey.
Box art for The Border Season One. Honestly, that’s awful box art. Not only is it a bunch of heads backdropped by some blue, the artwork looks strangely unprofessional compared to, say, jPod. Usually VSC has at least half-decent box art, but not here. All that motion-blurred text…ugh.
The Starlost complete series set has been delayed by VCI until November 4 – no reason, VCI just felt like it. Every time I see that logo for The Starlost I keep thinking “Coneheads.”
In other news, The Starlost is already being sold at amazon.com for half its list price. It’s the price of the future…TODAY!
On a personal note, I recently posted to Canuxploitation.com‘s forums about the Canadian TV-on-DVD Roundup. I don’t think I need to explain what Canuxploitation.com is about, but think Jon Mikl Thor films and Prom Night. Hell, just think Jon Mikl Thor. He’s a cottage industry in himself.
I’m already #1 or #2 at Google.com on the subject of Canadian TV-on-DVD, and I think sweetposer.com may be the first site to talk extensively about the subject. Sure, there’s a hometheaterforum.com topic about Canadian TV-on-DVD releases, but this site may have set a trend. Whether this translates into people actually reading sweetposer.com remains to be seen.
