After wishing ourselves a Happy 8th Birthday, we tackle the latest releases on disc. First up, Batman Brave and the Bold Season 3 (2011) finally comes to Blu-ray looking bolder than ever. Next up, from the creative team behind the irreverent, award-winning comedy Childrens Hospital comes Newsreaders Season 1 (2013) on DVD - the series explores the vital issues that actually don't affect us every day. Take your front-row seats to the best variety show of rarities from the Jazz Age, as the vaunted and venerable Vitaphone sound shorts present a third DVD collection of vintage Vaudeville and more with Vitaphone Varieties Volume 3 (1928-29). The Girl and the General (1967) is a haunting Italian neorealist dramedy about an Italian private, Umberto Orsini, who captures an Austrian general, Rod Steiger. Then we wrap the podcast up with a Flashback discussion of the 2010 release of the must-see oddball classic, Gabriel Over the White House (1933) starring Walter Huston and Franchot Tone.
