This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s.

Please don’t take the commentary on the movies and TV shows too seriously, as they’re meant not to be reviews but rather previews that include the general thoughts and ramblings of a twice-committed DVD addict. The categories represent solely the author’s intentions towards the films at hand, and are in no way meant to be a reflection on what he thinks other people should rent or buy. So if he ends up putting a movie you like in the “Skip it” section without having seen it, please keep in mind that the time you could spend leaving a spiteful but ultimately futile comment could instead be used for more pleasant things in life. Like buying DVDs.

FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS (SEASON 2)
It’s sad to think that this may be the last we see of Flight of the Conchords (in TV show form, anyway), but at least they went out strong, providing us with another wonderful season of offbeat, deadpan hilarity. …It isn’t perfect, however. Unlike the first season, where writers/creators/stars Jermaine Clement and Bret McKenzie already had the songs and needed to find a way to craft the episodes’ storylines around them, this time around, all of their songs were created exclusively for the new season. As such, the songs often tend to relate rather specifically to events taking place in the episodes, and a number of the tracks don’t hold up nearly as well on their own because of it. This is a minor quibble though, and isn’t nearly enough to detract from what’s otherwise a brilliant final outing from everyone’s favorite (and maybe only) New Zealand comedy duo.
Blu-ray? No.
Notable Extras: Deleted scenes, a documentary, and more.
