It's Doogan Day at The Bits with Gripe Soda & more, plus Shout Out!

Guten Tag, dear readers!  We’ve got some good stuff for you here today...

As it happens, it’s officially Doogan Day here at The Digital Bits.  Our very own Todd Doogan is kicking off a new regular column here at The Bits called Gripe Soda, where he’ll chime in about Blu-ray, DVD, film, TV, comic books and pretty much anything else that catches his fancy or gets his goat.  Doogan is also serving as the official curator for another new section we’re launching on The Bits today called The Criterion Spines Project, where we’re going to be compiling as many of our reviews of Criterion titles on Blu-ray and DVD as we can in the months and years ahead.  And he’s christening the section today with his own new review of Criterion’s terrific Blu-ray special edition of Akira Kurosawa’s Rashomon.  So we hope you enjoy it all... and stay tuned for Doogan’s future exploits around here!

Also, in release news today, Shout! Factory has set MADtv: Season Three for DVD only release on 6/25.

Speaking of which, Shout! has also started a new weekly video update called Shout Out!, featuring our friend (and special edition producer) Brian Ward talking about all the great work they’re doing on upcoming titles at Shout! and Scream Factory as well.  (Man, that’s a lot of exclaimation marks.)  You can check out this week’s new installment here…

Finally today, there’s apparently been another live video event going on this afternoon with Microsoft offering updated (and clarified) details about their newly-announced Xbox One.  Jeff’s taking it all in and he’s going to compile all the relevant information (including the gaming-related details) into another update for tomorrow’s edition of My Two Cents.  So be sure to watch for it in the morning.

And that’s all for now!  Stay tuned…

- Bill Hunt
