Ain't It Cool News (


I am – Hercules!!

The same year Johnny Smith saw Martin Sheen’s Greg Stillson become president and destroy the world, Sheen also played the president of the United States in the 1983 miniseries “Kennedy.” It co-starred Blair Brown as Jackie, Vincent Gardenia as J. Edgar Hoover, E.G. Marshall as Joseph P. Kennedy and Kevin Conroy – longtime voice of the Batman – as Ted Kennedy. Beyond “The Dead Zone” and “Kennedy,” Sheen’s career has all sorts of ties to the Oval Office. Sheen played Bobby Kennedy in 1974’s “The Missiles of October.” He played Nixon’s White House counsel John Dean in the 1979 Watergate miniseries “Blind Ambition.” He narrated 1991’s “JFK.” He played Michael Douglas’ chief of staff in “The American President.” He played “Jack” in 2006’s “Bobby,” about the assassination of Robert Kennedy. And, of course, he played President Jed Bartlet on “The West Wing” for seven years.

    The cover art for the old X-MEN dvds is a joke

    by George Newman

    Those cant be really. that looks like bad fan art. I refuse to believe it as true. Neither FOX nor Marvel would slap such poorly rendered characters on the cover.

    Fuck You George Newman

    by White Goodman

    My retarded 8 year old inbred cousin drew that cover.

    Tru Blood Blu good to be Tru

    by CeejayNightwing

    YAY!, Tru Blood on Blu Ray, now can they manage to get All four season of BSG on Blu Ray too, and some of those cool canceled shows like Journeyman and Moonlight?

    My God...

    That Chuck cover is just terrible. A Photoshop tragedy. Actually, most of those are pretty bad.

    Lipstick Jungle...

    by BizarroJerry

    Why does every promo image I've ever seen for that show make it look like a lesbian three-way?

    Fat Albert Easter Special

    by Aquatarkusman

    This is the most eagerly anticipated DVD in years. But seriously, though, how would that even sell one copy.. ever?

    George Newman...

    by raw_bean

    ..if you click on the link you can see the cover art for Volume 1 is infinitely better. God knows what's going on with that Volume 2 cover.

    Brule rules!

    by skimn

    Just to see Steve Brule's Martial Arts Fighting techniques is enough of a reason to own Tim & Eric.

    what sort of bullshit column is this?

    by Righteous Brother

    a list of DVD's and Blu Rays - what sort of kick back does AICN get from all this?

    I seriously think someone made a fake entry

    My own worst enemy?

    by jarjarmessiah

    Did they make enough episodes to wrap up the series? Or is it like The Pretender that just stopped without resolution?

    Tales from the Darkside on dvd!

    by Yukon Cornelius

    I can not wait to see the episode with the creepy little bald albino creature that lives in the closet again. Brrrrr! Gives me the heebie-jeebies just thinking about it--reminds me of my youth growing up in New Jersey!

    Hoping for the Japanese X-Men intros

    by DeusExMachina

    I hope that both Japanese intros and bumpers are somewhere on any of the X-Men animated DVD's.

    My Own Worst Enemy

    by Mr Incredible

    No, they did not finish it. They left it up in the air, without resolution. It would have been nice if they had gotten enough episodes to finish it on DVD (remember DAY BREAK on ABC?),but that's NBC for you.

  • Feb. 10, 2009, 11:26 p.m. CST


    by tra1138

    Its about time that show hit dvd. I hope there will be a BluRay release. Either way, bring it on!!!

  • Feb. 10, 2009, 11:26 p.m. CST

    The X-MEN DVDs are comics, NOT the show.

    by gigantis2000

  • Feb. 11, 2009, 7:42 p.m. CST

    Oops, accidentally hit enter

    by gigantis2000

    The Fox X-Men show is not currently on DVD (well, not legal DVD anyway). The DVDs you are looking at are comic collections. I would've thought somebody would have figured it out since the last time one of these columns had "X-MEN!!" in the heading. Repeat: THOSE X-MEN DVDS ARE NOT THE SHOW, THEY ARE COMICS!!!

  • Feb. 11, 2009, 7:46 p.m. CST

    Fuck, now that I look at it,

    by gigantis2000

    it even says "MARVEL COMIC BOOK COLLECTION" on the fucking cover. That should've given it away. I just don't want any idiots wasting their money on something when they think they're getting something else. Actually, I take that back. If you're that stupid, then do it. Plus the comics are better than the cartoons.
