Even though I’m not the biggest TWD fan, The Robot Chicken Walking Dead Special: Look Who’s Walking release does offer some laughs for both fans and non-fans alike, though the fans will likely get far more out of it.
Warner Home Video has announced the date and released artwork for the animated action-comedy, The LEGO Batman Movie starring the voice talents of Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes and Zach Galifianakis and directed by Chris McKay.

“Robot Chicken”: Season 7 is another solid season with plenty of great skits mixed in with those that didn’t quite land. What is disappointing was that Warner, after releasing the last few season sets were released on Blu-ray, including a couple specials, only to be relegated back to DVD. Still, there’s a good amount of bonus material to peruse making for an OK release.
The “Robot Chicken”: Christmas Specials collection is geared more toward casual fans as, from what I can tell, everything on this disc was previously released in some fashion in the season sets, features included. The DVD itself has OK audio and video while the commentaries are at least entertaining.
Radio Days is a fun yet poignant trip down Allen’s nostalgia lane and features excellent performances from various cast members including a young Seth Green as well as Allen staple Mia Farrow. This Blu-ray released by Twilight Time, the fourth either directed by or starring Woody Allen, offers up excellent video and audio transfers though the features, with only a single trailer, is limited.
Idle Hands is a film I initially didn’t care much for but have grown a bit fonder of over the years. The cast is great headlined by Devon Sawa and Seth Green, with Jessica Alba making an impressive appearance early in her career and serves wonderfully as eye candy. The Blu-ray released by RLJ offers excellent video/audio transfers but the features are non-existent which is to be expected from a cheap and quick release.
“Robot Chicken”: Season 6 continues to be a successful and very funny series for Adult Swim. The comedy is often gold and Seth Green and company often cross the line offending multiple people and cultures with off-color humor. The Blu-ray released by Warner Brothers once again has some great bonus content while the audio/video transfers weren’t great but still adequate considering the subject.
The “Robot Chicken: DC Comics Special” is just as funny as the show itself and for fan of DC Comics, it’s a hoot to watch. While not all the jokes land, the majority do and alongside some decent talent lending their voices, even if a few are unrecognizable (like Alfred Molina). The Blu-ray released by Warner Home Video/Adult Swim offers good audio/video transfers and a good selection of special features.
Sexy Evil Genius is a fun low budget film propelled primarily on the cast and their interactions with one another than anything else. The story itself, though, does at least keep you on edge just trying to figure out what the main character’s ultimate goal is. I wouldn’t say this was a memorable film or anything, but it is worth a one-off viewing at least. The DVD itself has acceptable video/audio transfers while the features are underwhelming, though the commentary is enjoyable.
“Robot Chicken” is easily one of the funniest shows on television and a personal favorite of mine. This fifth season, while not the strongest in its run, has some funny bits and like before, a great collection of guest voice talents. Seth Green and company also know how to package a home video release with plenty of features to justify the price given each episode is only 11-12 minutes long.
Adult Swim and Warner Bros. have announced the date and released artwork for the hit television series, “Robot Chicken” Season Five set for release on DVD and, for the first time, Blu-ray high-definition.

“Laugh it Up, Fuzzball: The Family Guy Trilogy” has its moments but I think because I’m not the biggest fan of “Family Guy”, the humor didn’t quite reach me as it would others who are fans. I did find some funny scenes and gags throughout “Blue Harvest”, a few less in “Something, Something, Something Dark Side” and even less (almost nill) in “It’s a Trap”.
