A few customers had come in to ask if we have 3D movies – unfortunately, we don’t have those yet – because they are not on sale very often nor does any of my suppliers carry them yet.   3d tvs are still not very common – but at the Source at the mall – they […]

Putting some Focus Back on TV Series

Posted on August 28, 2008 - Filed Under DVD, Entertainment, TV | Leave a Comment

Our TV series rentals have been rather dismal over the last year or so, mainly because they’ve been crammed onto a shelf that’s away from the regular rentals. Another problem is that we don’t have the room to spread them out like we used to, so instead of renting them out by the disc […]

The Hollywood writers strike is finally over so with any luck we’ll get a few more episodes of our favorite shows before the season ends. A lot of the shows I watch don’t seem to have been too affected by the strike though, with one big exception, Heroes was cut short by several episodes. […]

For the last several years I’ve taken TV box sets and split them up to rent as individual discs for $2 a night. It worked well for a long time, people could rent a disc or two, depending on how much they could watch in a night or a weekend and then come back […]

This show is heating up quite nicely in it’s second season.  I really enjoyed season 1 and found the general plot of the show to be rather unique among the sea of doctor/cop/lawyer shows that plague the airways.  Dexter Morgan has a problem, he’s a serial killer.  But he has a conscious and only kills […]
