The existence of U2 vs. new Futurama? Even Walternate would know which to pick.
Futurama Vol. 5
Holding a new DVD of new Futurama episodes in our hands makes us feel like we're living in some kind of Fringe alterni-verse. Are there really 13 all-new eps? Does this set really have commentary tracks for all 13? Plus deleted scenes, a table read and the "Previously on Futurama" recap? Even if U2 doesn't exist on this side, we're willing to make that trade for more Futurama goodness.
Family Guy: It's a Trap!
We get it, this show really likes Star Wars. Were three parodies, one of each installment in the original trilogy, absolutely necessary? I'd like to think that they won't do one based on any of the prequels, but now as I type it, I'm pretty sure they'll do all three. To be fair, this episode has some great guest stars -- Patrick Stewart , Anne Hathaway, Carrie Fisher -- and some great extras (Deleted scenes? Animatics? Nice), so kudos for that. And all three are available in a three-pack -- get them now before they're re-released in 3-D.
Caprica: Season 1.5
The last episodes of an ambitious spin-off series. Plenty of episodes (including the final five that won't air in the U.S. until January) to tide you over to the next spin-off and its eventual cancellation.
The Guild: Season 4
"Do you want to have a common-law marriage with my avatar?" A four-season marathon of this Felicia Day web series should just about do it.
Billy the Exterminator: Season 1 and Season 2
Is this what this country of short attention spans has come to? In our quest to be entertained, have we greenlit and produced two seasons of a show about a man catching and disposing of other people's problem animals? Yes, I'm aware some of those animals are alligators, but the principle is the same. Why aren't we out trapping raccoons and bobcats in our own backyards?
