* The Little Rascals – The ClassicFlix Restorations, Volume 6 (ClassicFlix)
$39.99 SRP Blu-ray

—–Remastered, uncut and beautifully restored, now you can see The Little Rascals like never before! With restorations so glorious, it will be like watching these iconic shorts for the first time! By 1935, the writing was on the wall for the staple at Hal Roach Studios: two-reel comedies. While his short films were still popular with the public, Roach’s filmic output was losing ground financially to double features, necessitating that his stars either transition to feature films (like Laurel & Hardy) or find employment elsewhere. An exception was made for Our Gang as the producer continued to make one-reelers featuring the kiddie troupe with the focus on five members: Spanky, Alfalfa, Darla, Buckwheat and Porky. With the length of the shorts cut in half (Our Gang Follies of 1938 [1937] being an exception), the finished streamlined product was both cost-effective and profitable. The change didn’t seem to hurt the franchise either as the first one-reeler, Bored of Education (1936), won the Academy Award for Best (One-Reel) Short Subject the following year. In 1938, after two additional years of cranking out classic comedies, Roach would sell the property to MGM where the series continued until 1944. The Little Rascals – The ClassicFlix Restorations, Volume 6 contains the final 23 Our Gang sound shorts produced by the Hal Roach Studios: Bored of Education (1936) to Hide and Shriek (1938)—with each short newly scanned and restored from the original Hal Roach 35mm film elements. A must-have for any true Our Gang fan, Volume 6 features the talents of George “Spanky” McFarland, Billie “Buckwheat” Thomas, Carl “Alfalfa” Switzer, Darla Hood, Eugene “Porky” Lee, Tommy “Butch” Bond and Sidney “Woim” Kibrick. There are also special appearances from former members Mickey Daniels, Mary Kornman, Joe Cobb and Matthew “Stymie” Beard! SHORTS: 1936 – Bored of Education; Two Too Young; Pay as You Exit; Spooky Hooky; 1937 – Reunion in Rhythm; Glove Taps; Hearts are Thumps; Rushin’ Ballet; Three Smart Boys; Roamin’ Holiday; Night ‘n’ Gales; Fishy Tales; Framing Youth; The Pigskin Palooka; Mail and Female; Our Gang Follies of 1938; 1938 – Canned Fishing; Bear Facts; Three Men in a Tub; Came the Brawn; Feed ’em and Weep; The Awful Tooth; Hide and Shriek

“When RAY DONOVAN went off our air after seven great seasons, we heard from so many of its loyal fans that they were not ready to say goodbye to Ray and the wonderfully dysfunctional Donovan clan,” said Levine. “And so, for them, we are delighted that Liev and David are creating a thrilling new chapter of this iconic series.”

During its 82-episode run from 2013 to 2020, the series earned multiple Emmy, Golden Globe, Writers Guild and Critics’ Choice nominations, with Voight winning a Golden Globe Award for Best Performance By An Actor Role In A Supporting Role In A Series, Mini-Series, Or Motion Picture Made For Television.

* Detectorists – Series 1 (RLJ/Acorn)
$39.99 SRP Blu-ray MOD
EXTRAS: Behind the Scenes featurette (24 minutes)
—–Mackenzie Crook (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Toby Jones (The Hunger Games) strike comedic gold in this critically adored series about two oddballs scouring the English countryside for treasure. If only their characters, Andy and Lance, could be so fortunate. These amateur metal detectorists have an unhealthy fixation on uncovering a fabled trove of buried Saxon loot. Unfortunately, the world of high-stakes metal detecting is surprisingly turbulent, as are their personal lives. Andy’s girlfriend, Becky (Rachael Stirling, The Bletchley Circle), is none too pleased about the amount of time he sinks into his fruitless hobby, and even less so when a female colleague enters the equation. Lance, meanwhile, is still hopelessly in love with his ex-wife-and finds several embarrassing ways to show it. But behind the most excruciating moments lies a winning combination of warmth, eccentricity, and humanity that makes this comedy “indispensable viewing” (The Guardian, UK) and “one of the loveliest, most inventive things on TV all year” (The Daily Mail, UK).
