It was a hard slog to get through the spotlight reviews this week. I live in Abbotsford, and this was the weekend of the Abbotsford Air Show and the constant stream of jets flying overhead made it nearly impossible to watch movies at times. (Do you know how loud you have to be to drown out Cutthroat Island?) As for this week's list of home market releases, there are a number that are worth picking up, but none that are must haves, and none rise to the level of DVD Pick of the Week. However, while there are no DVD Picks of the Week, there are enough reviews that the list had to be split into two with the first part found here

We are starting to see the flood of TV on DVD releases that hit the home market this time every year.
It makes sense: after all, what better time to release the previous season on DVD than just before the next season starts?
Three such releases, The Middleman - The Complete Series, Battlestar Galactica - The Complete Series - Blu-ray Box Set, and Dollhouse - Season One - on DVD or Blu-ray are in contention for DVD Pick of the Week.
The Battlestar Galactica release is a tad too expensive for most people, while I am unsure of the exact nature of the extras on Dollhouse.
That leaves The Middleman - The Complete Series as the DVD Pick of the Week, for the second week in a row.
With the increasing number of TV on DVD releases, the list is large enough that it has to be split into two parts with part two found here.
