Welcome back to another exciting episode of This Week's Discs! This week we've got...a smattering of titles to talk about. So let's get right to it.
First up is the CW television series Supernatural. If you're not familiar with the series it would be completely understandable to be a bit skeptical. Pretty boy brothers chase ghosts and goblins on the CW? Doesn't exactly sound like fried gold does it? Well, put those doubting pants away, because it turns out the show is actually pretty good. I've only seen the first few episodes, but I'm already hooked as our own Pete and Jacob Hall (no relation) are as well. This week's sees the release of the show's fifth season on both DVD and Blu-ray. From everything I hear, this show just keeps getting better as it progresses, so jump in now!
Next up is the creature feature Growth. Seems like they've changed the original cover art, which featured a naked body bent over with a creature under the skin along the spine. The image they went with is still squirmy but more obviously fake, and definitely less subtle. This makes the film look more cheesy than psychologically intense. It probably won't win any awards, but it might be worth a rental.
