It's the unofficial beginning of the Christmas Shopping Season. Starting the rush this year is The Avengers, which broke records at the box office and will likely do the same on the home market. It is clearly a contender for Pick of the Week, but I'm not sure if the Blu-ray Combo Pack or the 3D Combo Pack is the better deal. The only other contender for Pick of the Week is Bond: 50 on Buy from Amazon. However, it's a double-dip... or triple-dip. I've lost count. In the end, I'm going with The Avengers on 3D Combo Pack. It's only $5 more, so it is worth future-proofing.

Disney is flooding the Blu-ray market with catalogue releases. A few weeks ago this included four horror films. One of them, Arachnophobia, was pushed back at the last minute, so all of the screeners arrived late. Tonight I'll try to get through all four of them. It shouldn't be as hard as it sounds, as I'm pretty sure I've seen three of them already. The only one I missed the first time around was Cold Creek Manor. Given its box office numbers, I wasn't the only one.

This week is again loaded with TV on DVD releases, including several in the top best sellers according to Amazon.com. The best TV on DVD release in terms of comedy is 2 Broke Girls: Season One on DVD or Blu-ray, while Person of Interest: Season One on DVD or Blu-ray is the best TV on DVD release as far as the dramas are concerned. Both are contenders for Pick of the Week, but neither quite gets there. The Five-Year Engagement on Blu-ray Combo Pack comes a little close, but in the end I went with Headhunters on DVD or Blu-ray. Just keep an eye on the price of the Blu-ray.

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 and a few from the growing TV on DVD section. A bit of a slow week, which means I was able to reduce my choices for DVD pick of the week to just one: School of Rock
- (Buy from Amazon
.) I'm not counting Father Ted - The Holy Trilogy
, because it was one of my Picks of the Week when it was originally supposed to be released.
