Whew, well April is finally over and I didn’t see one single present from any of you. For shame people, but I’ll still keep working for you and letting you know all that is coming out. This last Tuesday of the month brings about some great titles for fans of every genre such as 27 Dresses, The Diving Bell And The Butterfly, and The Great Debaters. There are also numerous new seasons of your favorite television series on the way like Cheers, Beverly Hills 90210, and The Waltons. And the WWE continues their trend of fantastic releases with the two-disc set all about those Hardy Boyz, Matt and Jeff. Keep the umbrella handy because April showers are still about and could really ruin all your new DVDs on the way out of the store.
