DVD Releases For July 29, 2008
From MGM Home Ent. and award-winning Producers Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper, STARGATE: CONTINUUM debuts exclusively on DVD and Blu-Ray Disc, July 29. In this adrenaline-driven, action adventure, members of SG-1 find themselves returning to a world where their history has been dramatically altered. Continuing the legacy of STARGATE SG-1, the longest-running, scripted, made-for television series in U.S. broadcasting history, STARGATE: CONTINUUM reunites Richard Dean Anderson as Jack O'Neill, with series favorites Ben Browder, Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge, Claudia Black, Golden Globe winner and three-time Emmy Award-winning actor, Beau Bridges and Michael Shanks as Daniel Jackson.
The most northerly-filmed movie production in history, filmed partly in the Arctic, STARGATE: CONTINUUM is the most ambitious Stargate production yet, featuring incredible visual effects, out-of-this-world battle sequences and breathtaking scenes shot on the Arctic ice.

BIRDS OF PREY: The Complete Series On DVD
BIRDS OF PREY, the hit WB show and the #5 most requested unreleased show on TVShowsOnDVD.com, will finally make it to DVD. Three young female heroines will be fighting together, living together, and soaring into adventure together when Warner Home Video releases BIRDS OF PREY: The Complete Series on July 29, 2008. BIRDS OF PREY: The Complete Series includes all 13 episodes from the series plus all-new bonus features in a four-disc collection.
From the creators of the CW hit SMALLVILLE, BIRDS OF THE PREY was produced in 2002 for the WB and is loosely based on the DC Comics series with the same name. The hit show brought in 7.6 million viewers each week and was the largest audience in the 18-34 demographic for the network at that time. While the world was sleeping at night, the BIRDS OF PREY flock together to fight crime on the streets of New Gotham City. Several years after the city was abandoned by Batman, the awesome threesome of Huntress (Ashley Scott), Oracle (Dina Meyer), and Dinah (Rachel Skarsten) was formed. Huntress is the daughter of Batman and Catwoman and can smell danger from miles away. Dinah has the gift of clairvoyance and Oracle leads the team through her cyber experience, despite being wheelchair bound by the Joker. During the course of the show, the girls are often confronted with schemes masterminded by Dr. Quinzel, but always prevail and beat him at his own game.
In addition to the entire series, complete with 13 episodes, BIRDS OF PREY: The Complete Series includes never-before-seen special features such as:
