July 10th is a day many of you have been waiting for, not because there's a set you're dying to buy, but because it's a slow release day. That's right, July 10th is the slowest day you'll find for a very, very long time.

Beauty and the Beast, one of the top shows on TVShowsOnDVD.com, has its second season released, and this time there are extras! Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman provide video introductions on select episodes. It doesn't sound like much, but at least it's something.

We also see the third season release of Hustle, a BBC series about a group of con men (and woman). It's a great series, though the DVDs aren't as good as BBC's MI-5 (both shows are produced by Kudos). It's still one of my favorites, though the short seasons drive me crazy, but only because I like it so much.

My "pick of the week" award goes to another British series, Extras from HBO Home Video. Ricky Gervais isn't quite as brilliant as he was in The Office, but the show is delightfully funny, and the DVD set comes with some great extras. Look for the "Art of Corpsing" (a behind-the-scenes look at how the cast handles the most outrageous moments on the set), "Extras Backstage" (an hour-long feature that goes backstage with the cast), "Taping Nigel: The Gimpening" (a hilarious featurette that shows the "loving" relationship between Extras cast and crew), Outtakes and Bloopers. Sounds like a winner!

Also releasing July 10 - Bewitched season 5, My Sweet 16 seasons 1&2 (in one set), Home Run Derby volume 1, and 6 volumes of Punky Brewster.

So, are you saving money this week, or is there a set you have your eye on?
