Chuck Season 2 Blu-ray

Finally the Blu-ray of the second season of Chuck has a 5th of January release date.
The UK market probably wasn't considered big enough to justify it's own release when the R2 DVD appeared and the US release as normal is timed to help promote the returning broadcast of the next season.
The irony is that it looks like the show could be returning so than expected as NBC's 09/10 shows are not really doing the numbers.

Blu-ray offers from Amazon UK

Finally a half decent promotion from Amazon UK which quite frankly is most welcome because price wise and certainly the selection of cheaper titles has been pathetic and that's in the middle of a recession.

Amazon 2 for £17

Holi holi day

A week off work, well a week and a day and even longer when you add two weekends.
Nothing planned as I'm really just using up my quota of paid days off which you lose if you don't take them by the end of the year so it's Boxset marathon time:)
I have The Professionals and Quantum Leap and already onto the second disk of House season 5 bought for £17.99 from BangCD, very good price.

Michael Shanks

The news is that Michael Shanks best known for playing Daniel Jackson in the Stargate franchise is coming to Smallville playing the Justice League member "Hawkman".
Michael did buff up during his SG years so he'll probably be able to pull off the costume:)

Stargate Movie Blu-ray

Movietyme have the 15th Anniversary edition of Stargate at a reasonable £13.99 (£1 voucher and free p&p) and it's region free so I've been tempted back in the US Blu-ray market which I've ran away from with the poor exchange rates.
It's the first HD disc I have double dipped and hopefully there will not be many more:)

The second TV/DVD movie from the Battlestar Galactica franchise (The Plan) is also being offered but at a more ridiculous £20.99 which rules me out.
