Star Trek: The Next Generation comes to an end with All Good Things..., the two-hour series finale. Each of the past four seasons had a two-part storyarc that was released as a separate Blu-ray to the full-season Blu-ray. It makes sense to give this show's series finale a proper Blu-ray of its own, assuming the series ended on a high note. Is that the case? If so, does the Blu-ray do it justice?

Ray Donovan began last year on Showtime and broke the record for biggest premiere on that cable channel. It maintained its viewership numbers throughout the season, while earning great reviews. Now that it is coming out on DVD and Blu-ray, is it worth checking out for those who don't have Showtimes? Is the Blu-ray worth picking up for those who like the show?

Star Trek: The Next Generation is one of the most successful syndicated shows of all time. It ran for seven seasons and was seen by millions every week. I've had a chance to review all three previous seasons. Season one was mostly mediocre, while season two had better highs, but worse lows. It was season three where the show reached its full potential. Is season four just as good? Is it even better? Or does it slip a little in quality?

Star Trek: The Next Generation ran for seven seasons and while the first two seasons were mixed, season three is widely regarded at the beginning of the classic period. Is this true? Or is it only good when compared to the first two seasons?

I don't want to be buried in a Pet Sematary,
I don't want to live my life again.
That song has been stuck in my head all week. At least it is a good song. Pet Sematary is making its Blu-ray debut this week, hence the Ramones induced mind worm. When the film first came out, it only earned mixed reviews, but it earned nearly $60 million on a production budget that was just under $12 million. At the time, it was the biggest hit by Stephen King, in terms of raw dollars at the domestic box office. (One could argue Carrie and Stand By Me were more profitable based on percentages earned.) The film is now 20 years old. Does it live up to its box office numbers? Or is it one of Stephen King's lesser films in terms of quality? Is the Blu-ray worth picking up if you are a fan?
