This Week's Interesting DVD Releases (October 7th, 2008)

The eleventh season of The Simpsons hits store shelves tomorrow. Fans of the show are often split about when the series peaked, but any season that includes the brilliant "Tomacco" and "Missionary: Impossible" episodes deserves a spot in my media library,

Other television releases worth checking out include Speed Racer: The Complete Classic Series Collection (which comes in a metal car-like case), the adorable Tina Fey in the second season of 30 Rock, the third season of How I Met Your Mother, and the third season of Robot Chicken.

Feature film Boy A is one of the most impressive dramatic films I have seen all year. Paranoid Park and Tom McCarthy's The Visitor were also critically well-received and are high in my rental queue.

In case you didn't download it legally, Michael Moore's latest film, Slacker Uprising arrives on DVD tomorrow. The documentary I most look forward to is Indyfans and the Quest for Fortune and Glory which explores the fan community of the Indiana Jones film series.

Music releases include a 1988 Big Country Moscow concert and the Johnny Cash Christmas Special 1976-1979 (also available individually),

What are you adding to your Netflix queue from this week's DVD releases?
