As inflation tightens its grip on America, its consumers are staying home more often. Consequently, DVD and video game sales have increased dramatically. In response the DVD industry are releasing old television shows like, Emergency and China Beach, as well as new shows. However, it is the high quality of television programs today that are causing the newest DVD releases to sell out in stores across the country. Shows like Prison Break, Dexter, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles have been creating an extra wave of excitement on top of the increase in sales already underway because of their high production value, intense story-lines and great acting.

As if to complement the exceptional drama, two new comedy shows have made their debut on DVD which are as high of quality as they are funny. The Big Bang Theory and Spaced are both surprisingly funny with good story lines and new gags an accomplishment that is rarely seen in television comedies.
In The Big Bang Theory physicists Leonard and Sheldon understand everything from the inescapable gravitational pull of a black hole to the intricate structure of the atom unless those atoms are assembled into a woman, then their comprehension comes to a grinding halt. So when Penny, a woman with all those atoms in all the right places, moves in across the hall, Leonard and Sheldon’s universe begins to expand in ways they never could have imagined.
In Spaced two idle twenty-something flatmates – would-be comicbook artist Tim (Simon Pegg, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), and moody writer Daisy (Jessica Hynes), exist in a world precariously perched on the edge of sanity. So when their self-induced lack of success in employment, relationships, and their oddball assortment of friends and neighbors, Marsha, Brian, Mike and Twist get thrown into the mix their world gets hurled into hilarious insanity.
This selection of titles is just a small part of the great DVD sets being released. Television shows on DVD are this summers perfect fix for high gas prices and travel expenses but since there are no commercial interruptions, the popcorn is perfect, and the chair is comfy, why bother going to the theater.
