You know that episode of Seinfeld where Elaine ruins Frank’s TV Guide by dripping gyro sauce all over it?  And then the ever-so-creepy Ricky (played by Sam Lloyd) brings her a bouquet of flowers made from a TV guide and proclaims, upon seeing Twilight Zone on TV, “oh, this is a good one!”  Yeah, he could have just as easily been talking about this order (which is actually like 6 orders all smushed together).

Fiction DVDs Ordered (week of 7/14/14)

I’ve heard your cries for Arrested Development Season 4.

Just sent in a new cart of DVDs this week.  It’s mostly TV, and quite a bit of it is just reordering things that we had but now don’t have for one reason or another.  What reasons are those you ask?  Well, I don’t know exactly, but if I had to guess:

  • Someone didn’t have a soft cloth  to clean the disk with, so they just used sandpaper instead.
  • Someone thought they were more important than everyone else that uses the library and decided not to bring back the movie.
  • Someone accidentally stored their DVDs in the cabinet marked “Narnia”.
  • Someone was running late for ultimate frisbee practice and just grabbed the first disc-shaped thing they could find.
  • Someone gave the disc to their baby/dog/rabid wolverine.
  • I discarded a movie because it had never checked out, and then instantly became the most popular movie in the world.

Here’s hoping none of these titles suffer any of those fates:

  • 2 Broke Girls (Season 3)
  • 3 Days to Kill
  • Angel (Season 2)
  • Arrested Development (Season 4)
  • Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
  • Big Love (Seasons 1, 2, and 5)
  • The Blacklist (Season 1)
  • Bowfinger
  • Doc Martin (Seasons 1 & 2)
  • Flashpoint (Season 5)
  • The Glades (Season 3 & 4)
  • The Green Mile
  • Haywire
  • Hot in Cleveland (Seasons 3 & 4)
  • How Stella Got Her Groove Back
  • The Hunger (Season 1)
  • It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (Season 8)
  • Longmire (Season 2)
  • The Men Who Stare at Goats
  • Midsomer Murders (Sets 22, 23, and 24)
