The dog days of summer continue on the home market, but it is the calm before the storm. In this case the storm is a flood of TV on DVD releases, which we are starting to see show up in earnest. This is both good news and bad news. On the one hand, there are plenty of top notch releases coming out over the next few weeks. On the other hand, reviewing a full-season TV on DVD release takes a long time, which means my schedule will be packed for the next month or so. At least I get screeners for free, while consumers will see their wallet under assault week after week. The best selling release of the week is Dexter: Season Four, which is also the easy choice for Pick of the Week. I'm not sure if the DVD or the Blu-ray is the better deal, but regardless which format you choose, it is worth picking up.

Ca$h is a film with an incredibly generic name that opened in too many theaters for a limited release and got almost no reviews. I think the studio was hoping the future star of Thor, Chris Hemsworth, would be enough to help it at the box office. This was not to be. However, now that it is coming out on DVD, will it find a more receptive audience?
