For everyone out there like me, whose felt somewhat left out by the recent spate of “warrior women” TV to DVD releases and 70’s-80’s TV to DVD releases in general; Universal Television has announced a line up of shows coming to DVD in 2004 designed to please. Among the titles now scheduled to appear later this year are, one first crush and two personal favorites of mine, The Bionic Woman, Kojak and Miami Vice.

We’ve also gotten word from those nice folks at Universal that they’ll finally be releasing Sacha Baron Cohen’s hilarious feature outing Ali G Indahouse on November 2nd. The film (which has been available over in the UK for 'round about a year or so) will retail for $27.98. In addition to a 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer and an English Dolby Digital 5.1 track, the disc will include an Audio Commentary with Ali G, Deleted Scenes, a Video Diary, a Talking the Talk feature, a photo gallery, and three trailers (theatrical, Ali teaser and Tupac teaser.

In honor of the ongoing, and increasing bitter, political season Universal’s slated an October 5th street date for The War Room, a fascinating look inside Clinton’s first presidential campaign. This Academy Award nominated documentary, will be available for around $14.98. The film itself will be presented in 1.33:1 full frame along with an English Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo track. As far as we know, the only extra material will be an introduction from the filmmakers.

And last but certainly not least, Universal’s DVD release schedule has conspired to make me a completely happy man by including the second wave of the Monster Legacy Collections. Up for grabs on October 19th will be the greatest man-in-suit monster film made by anyone who wasn’t Japanese...The Creature From the Black Lagoon, we’ll also be treated to collections of both The Mummy and The Invisible Man. Each of the new titles will retail at around $29.98. The films themselves will be presented in full frame along with English Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono tracks. You’ll find full specs for each of the discs below:
