DVD Release List – 10/20/09

Illustration for article titled DVD Release List – 10/20/09

This is the week for people who love TV and have hundreds and hundreds of dollars free to spend. We’re now fully in the pre-holiday-sales “complete series” season. This week’s batch of pricey DVD sets is top-lined by the cult favorite It’s Garry Shandling’s Show, a full review of which will be running here in the AVC tomorrow. But the complete series armada does not contain only one ship. Shandling is joined by complete series sets of Homicide: Life On The Street, Fawlty Towers, Black Adder, The Transformers, Saber Rider And The Star Sheriffs, and oh, maybe a little show called Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. Some of those have been on DVD before, but now they’re back—in smaller boxes or with new interviews or something. So enjoy!
