New DVD and Blu-ray releases this week

New DVD & Blu-ray Releases on Amazon

Next week looks like there will be some new Doctor Who, Longmire, Covert Affairs, Suits and more.  Looks like a good TV week is coming up.


I've been writing newsletters since 1999. I've worked for some great sites over the years and have had my work focused on by major networks and radio stations.
