Avengers ten-disc Blu-ray collection surfaces

Oo-ooh! Need to sell my Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America BDs now...

Primeval series five to air on ITV1 a year after Watch broadcast
by Morgan Jeffery (from Digital Spy)
Well I never. It's nearly 18 months since they aired season four, a year since season five premiered on Watch, and it's been out on DVD & Blu-ray for about that long too, so I didn't think ITV were going to bother -- it can't be a huge ratings draw at this point, especially considering it wasn't that big before. Perhaps that's why they're dumping it in the summer. But I don't mind -- despite it's low quality, last series ended on cliffhangers and I want to know what happened without having to pay for the thing.

Collection Count

Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.

A few sale acquisitions this week -- including The Exorcist on Blu-ray, a film I've been meaning to buy (and see, of course) for God knows how many years -- give a bit of a boost.

The Artist was also out this week. That's on order. I waited until it was out to use a 10% voucher I had (not useable on pre-orders), then the next day found it cheaper still somewhere else. I was able to move the order, but wasted the voucher and needn't have waited. There's a moral in there somewhere.
