So much for my post-exams reward - the Australian release of The West Wing on DVD has been delayed until August 5. EzyDVD.com.au has the set priced at $149.95 for all 22 first season episodes, which is pretty good value considering.
However, something even better will soon be arriving on DVD - Disney's animated 'Robin Hood'! I just love this film so much - Peter Ustinov is just perfect as the voice of Prince John. But the character that makes this film is Sir Hiss...my favourite part is when he floats around in a balloon...er, shutting up now.
