This week’s DVD and Blu-Ray releases include SYFY CHANNEL’S EUREKA SEASON 5. The final season to one of science fiction’s most quirky and fun show ever. Amazon also has a special bundle price for all 5 seasons together. Two other SYFY favorites coming out are SANCTUARY – SEASON 4 and the new hit series ALPHAS – SEASON 1.
I’m including Sci-fi and Comedy and a classic western that hits its 60th Anniversary in this list.

Eureka: Season Five - The Fifth and Final season to one of SYFY’s most popular shows. This set includes farewell videos from the cast. This season guest starred sci-fi fan favorites Wil Wheaton and Felicia Day.
ONLY $19.99 (as of this Posting).
Eureka: The Complete Series (Amazon Exclusive) - This Amazon exclusive bundle includes all 5 seasons in 7 DVD sets:

Lockout [Blu-ray] - I thought this film was a little on the silly side, but it’s a fun Sci-fi for a lot of people I’m sure. Be aware that this version is ‘Unrated’, unlike the PG-13 theatrical version.
“A renegade CIA agent (Guy Pearce), falsely accused of murder, must overcome a gang of ruthless prisoners held 50 miles above Earth and rescue the President’s daughter (Maggie Grace) in order to regain his freedom.” – Amazon Editorial. Also available - Lockout (DVD Version)
Alphas: Season One - I personally love this fairly new SYFY series. It has good acting and solid storytelling. The ‘ALPHAS’ are people who have been born with powers and extraordinary abilities, but they are regular people too. If you liked the first season of the TV Show HEROES, then I highly recommend this series. The second season starts on July 23rd.
Sanctuary – The Complete Fourth Season [Blu-ray]Another staple from SYFY’s original series, ‘Sanctuary’ centers on a group of people led by Dr. Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping) that hunt down and capture strange creatures and monsters.
