Oh Harry, I don’t even know who you are anymore.

It’s time for another DVD order!  There’s some weird ones, as you can see from the Horns trailer above, plus Kevin Smith’s Tusk, and the always-bizarre TV show Shameless.

There aren’t many DVD movie releases in December and early January, so this includes mostly patron requests and a few new seasons of TV.

Spoiler alert: the next order (coming later this month) will include the new seasons of Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones, due to be released in late January and early February, so keep your eyes open.

Here’s the list:

  • The Americans (Season 2)
  • Cavalry
  • Dallas (new series, Season 3)
  • Doctor Who (Series 8)
  • The Drop
  • The Equalizer
  • Extant (Season 1)
  • Family Guy (Volume 13)
  • Girls (Seasons 2 & 3)
  • Horns
  • House of Lies (Season 3)
  • Justified (Season 5)

This order continues a new project to rid the collection of unused items, and replace them with the titles that are already popular with patrons, or which are widely requested.

If you see some empty shelves in the DVD section, or if I’m out there pulling titles off the shelf like crazy, don’t worry, those areas will soon be filled with new TV and movies, as well as some other things that we’re thinking about that we’ll talk about later.  Oh, and Midsomer Murders will return!  We’re just trying to combine episodes where we can.

For now, here’s the list this week.  Again, it mostly includes things we already have, but that we needed more copies of.  Let us know on Facebook or Twitter which ones you’re most excited about!
