Well… there seems to be much happening in the world today, but there’s a little bit of ground to cover in the home video world as well.

First up, as you’ve seen in our earlier post, Amazon’s now taking pre-orders on Batman: The Complete Television Series – Limited Edition on Blu-ray for an impressively hefty SRP. [Read on here…]

Meanwhile, Amazon is also now taking pre-orders on Fox’s 24: Live Another Day on Blu-ray and DVD (SRP $59.99 and $49.98 – street date TBA). Interestingly, there’s also a pre-order listing for a DVD box set version of 24: The Complete Series with 24: Live Another Day (SRP $179.98). Sadly, no sign of a Blu-ray set of the Complete Series yet (or at least individual seasons of the show), though we know many of you would be interested in such. Anyway, here’s what the above look like (click the art for the pre-order pages for each)…
