“Cap’n Tightpants” or, New DVDS: March 9, 2010

March 9, 2010

I could not resist the tip to one of my favorite (albeit short-lived) series Firefly… Anyhow, here are some of the current DVD’s that the Library has recently received and cataloged.  It is very eclectic, from the outerverse of Joss Whedon’s Firefly to a golden age classic like Midnight, starring Claudette Colbert and Don Ameche,  passing through Australia for the thriller Restraint and ending in the alternate universe of Watchmen.  As always, the links to the titles go to IMDB and the links on the call numbers go to the library record.

Firefly  : the complete series / produced by Mutant Enemy Inc. in association with Twentieth Century Fox Television ; created by Joss Whedon. Moore Park, N.S.W. : 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, c2003.
