birdmanOr, the unexpected virtue of this awesome DVD order.

The 2015 Oscar nominations just came out (more about my thoughts on them in a future post), so this order makes sure the library is fully stocked on all major nominees.  I’ve also begun to work through some of the more popular patron requests that I have received (there’s something like 150-160 titles in my requests file), as well as ordering new releases.

Here’s the first order of 2015:

  • Archer (Season 5)
  • As Above, So Below
  • The Best of Me
