Simpons and 40-Year-Old Virgin are on the way.

I'm sure Airplane will find its way to my home eventually.

Also, the Producers "deluxe edition," which I realize is an opportunistic repackaging, but I hadn't added the "special edition" yet.

Also buying the new special edition of Rock 'n' Roll High School. Why? I'm not sure. Maybe it's the Ramones outtakes, maybe it's just the audacity of a "special edition" of such a low-budget exploitation hack job.

Tom, why did you buy The Hitcher, have they re-released it as a SE or something? I bought that DVD not long ago my self and quite enjoyed that movie....

Jeff,
I really like the film and wanted to watch it about a couple of weeks ago. When I realized I didn't have it on DVD, I hit up Amazon.com.
Incidently, there was talk of an SE version some time back, but nothing ever materialized. I do know that there is quite a bit of unused footage, including a very, very graphic version of the Leigh death scene. Now that I've bought this one, I'm sure that the SE will be announced soon. Perhaps it will coincide with the remake (yep, they're already remaking it) next year. :roll:

Jeff,
The only bad thing about season 1 is that it's censored. Still hilarious, though.
