Another random trip to a thrift store another sweet score of things I don’t really need. First world problems, I know. This time I walked away with a tiny misdemeanor of collecting craziness with some fun things to add to my ever growing, if a little late collection of DVDs. First up I found the first three seasons of the TV show CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. All for the low price of $2.00 each season. I could not pass up these up. I thought something might be wrong, is there used condoms inside the cases? Blood soaked discs or some missing and it’s up to me to find out where they could’ve gone. But nope, they are in great shape!
Traditionally I’m not a big fan of crime shows. Everything seems just to perfect for investigators that have way to much power to void people’s rights. I think it has a negative impact on society on how people understand what the police can and can’t do. But that’s for another time. I watched the first season of this show years ago and have not seen the others before. I know now they are many seasons to catch up. So I’m excited to see if I like it or not. I saw they have these on Blu-Ray now but for the price I’m excited to watch them.
Hey look its two with Sylvester and Tweety. I mean Tom and Jerry, cause having a mouse instead of a bird makes it TOTALLY different! That and the characters talk in the first show. I kind of prefer Tom & Jerry, I always love a good mime performance and a focus on the actions rather than the dialog. In collecting DVDs I think cartoons are great. They look fantastic so getting a blu-ray is not really required. There are so many to collect as well. I think I will be adding a section of cartoon DVDs I own.
For these I can’t say that I remember seeing these before. Maybe the covers are different for this one but I will have to watch them and see what I think of them. Cartoons also make a great background noise to have something running. This cost me $2.00 as well.
The last DVD I got this day was the Riddick Trilogy with the baldness that’s known as Vin Diesel. I wonder if the clean energy movement, which in-itself is a misnomer, has hurt Vin’s career at all. I’m sure there are some metrics that show it has. He’s kind of gotten lost, like a B version of The Rock with only countless lame “racing” movies keeping him with a roof over his head.
I’ve never seen Riddick before. I make it a point not to watch things with the word “dick” in the title. Maybe I’m missing out on something awesome or at least worthy of the $2.00 I paid for this trilogy set. Check back later when I let you know how this dick filled movie turns out.
That’s all I have got for this update. I got some other stuff but was too lazy to make a proper post for it. I will try to make a section to see my collection of what I have. If you’ve seen these before let me know what you think of them and if you have them in your collection.
