    Universal has apparently listened to the fans of the Law and Order spin offs
    that where not satisfied with just the premier episodes being released. Law
    & Order: Special Victims Unit - The First Year and Law & Order: Criminal
    Intent - The First Year will be released on October 21st for $59.95 each
    set.

    Warner Brothers has Vegas Vacation (Widescreen) and Vegas Vacation (Pan &
    Scan) set for release on October 7th. This title is reported as sporting 5.1
    audio. The widescreen version looks to be anamorphic. If you want the
    complete set of Vacation flicks you can go for National Lampoon's Vacation
    Giftset also out on October 7th for $59.92. This set includes National
    Lampoon's Vacation, National Lampoon's European Vacation, National Lampoon's
    Christmas Vacation and the new Vegas Vacation. The specifications are pretty
    much the same as the individual releases, mostly if not all anamorphic.

    Catcom is branching out from their double feature series with some
    documentaries. A number of them have been released and are still active from

    Harbor: A Day Of Infamy.

    For Ed Wood mavens Catcom has (same release date, same price) Plan 9 From
    Outer Space and Jail Bait / Glen Or Glenda (Double Feature). For the more
    religiously inclined they have Living Christ: Challenges & Miracles, Living
    Christ: World Without End and Living Christ: As It Was In The Beginning.
