Don't forget about the best new show of 2006, Dexter!! HBO has something to learn from Showtime, alright, after canceling Deadwood, Carnivale, Rome, The Comeback, Tenacious D, K Street, and many other phenomenal shows.

As far as Weeds price goes, it is really good except you have to remember it is only 10 episodes of 30 min each. Still way cheaper than HBO shows, talk about inviting pirating! Who spends that much for box sets?!?

Default Great news!

I have been waiting for Basic Instinct in high-definition for quite a while now! In Europe it was released on that other format a couple of weeks ago by Canal+. Now we can have it, too, and in glorious dts HD audio and most importantly - thank you very much, Lionsgate! - in the Unrated Director's Cut!
Cannot wait to see it for the first time in full 1080p splendor!
