It's that time again so here's our picks for this week. We'll start out with Jericho: The Complete Series, to which I say blech. Next we have On the Doll about people whov'e been abused and how they grow up to live messed up lives. It sports some nice photography and actually looks quite interesting. Next is The Restless, a Korean "Wu Xian Pan" epic. Then we have Be King, Rewind, the comedy featuring Jack Black and Mos Def. Last off, we have one of my personal favorites, a great horror/zombie flick from 1989 called The Dead Pit. Check out all the digs after the break!

Haha, "Blech" indeed. I enjoyed the show immensely in a 24 kind of way but, in terms of it being a PA show... not that interesting.
