We have a bounty of fall releases today, which makes me feel super-overwhelmed, because my DVR is already quite bloated!
The best of the bunch:
Release o’ the week: The Guild: Complete Megaset. Those who want a physical copy of Felicia Day’s landmark web series can pick up this six-disc set, complete with commentary and other extras. (The series’ sixth season also is out on DVD today.)
- The Best of An Evening at the Improv. For the first time, fans of the ’80s show can get these classic episodes which feature more than 100 comedians, including Jim Carrey, Billy Crystal, Jerry Seinfeld, Sandra Bernhard, Steven Wright, Phyllis Diller, Paul Reubens and others.

- Much Ado About Nothing. Joss Whedon takes Shakespeare and runs with it.
- The Hangover Part III. The trilogy comes to a so-so close. (The Hangover Trilogy also is out on DVD today.)
- In the Flesh: Season 1. The British zombie series offers a nice twist on the genre.
