Every week films get a second chance at success from the home market; or, in some cases, a first chance at success. Here is a list of wide releases, limited releases, classics and a few from the growing TV on DVD section. There's been quite a slump for high quality wide releases the DVD front, mainly because there wasn't a single wide release that earned overwhelmingly positive reviews during the first three months of the year. This week the first such film is hitting the home market, but the DVD release is crap, so it's up to the TV on DVD section to bail us out once again. Fortunately there are two amazing sets coming out tomorrow, one was a critically acclaimed but short-lived series and the other is a critically acclaimed and incredible enduring show. The first is Undeclared - The Complete Series - Buy from Amazon
, which is coming out just in time for the release of The 40 Year-Old Virgin
, both of which were created by Judd Apatow. And the second is The Simpsons
- The Complete Sixth Season - Buy from Amazon
, which needs no other explanation. Lastly we have Ryan - Buy from Amazon
, which was released earlier in the month, but should be part of everyone's collection.

Stories about secret agents, wine and revenge are the themes of some of the films to enter limited release this week.
Unlike the past couple of weeks, none of them scream out as obvious candidates for mainstream success.
