The distant past! The far-flung future! The present day! These are all things that could be referred to as "The Situation."
The Situation Workout
According to Mike Sorrentino's abstinence PSA, "Situation" can be used interchangeably to mean the man himself, his abs, reproductive organs and venereal disease/pregnancy. We're assuming this DVD will work out the first two things, and maybe the third.
The Pillars of the Earth
In case you missed the TV mini-series based on the Ken Follett novel, you can now own your own copy of this tale of intrigue in the time of cathedral-building. Where were you when rush hour hit the transepts?
Idris Elba plays a detective traumatized by a brutal case who discovers a vigilante streak in himself. I'm surprised he didn't snap trying to manage Michael Scott on The Office
I don't know if Ninth Doctor Christopher Eccleston actually gets naked in this made-for-TV movie about John Lennon, but Lennon himself certainly wasn't above stripping down in the name of a good photograph. Hopefully this will lead to a sequel starring David Tennant, titled McCartney in Short Shorts.
Space Precinct: The Complete Series
If they'd just called this show Law & Order: Space and added a robot Jerry Orbach, maybe it would've lasted more than a season.
7th Heaven: The Final Season
Godspeed, Reverend Eric Camden. May you find your continuing spiritual fulfillment playing a villain on a mediocre science-fiction show.
Also out this week: Deadwood: The Complete Series (Blu-ray), Murder She Wrote: The Complete 12th Season, Batman Beyond: The Complete Series, The Tudors: The Complete Series, Wagon Train: The Complete Season Two (in Collectible Tin), 12 Men of Christmas.
