Every day, Amazon offers up Lightning Deals, limited quantities of various products for a discounted price for a 4-hour window of time. You have to be on the lookout for these deals and once the item runs out, the sale is over. Meaning, if you see something on sale that you want, buy it immediately before it’s gone.

Typically you don’t know what will be on sale until the minute it gets posted, but for Black Friday week, Amazon has released the Lightning Deal schedule and prices for Movies & TV on DVD and Blu-ray for Sunday, December 1, 2013.

See here below for a few highlights from Sunday’s deals, like Chuck, Fringe, Alien, Millennium, Frasier, and more, along with more information on how these special deals work, and be sure to keep an eye out on the main DVD/Blu-ray Lightning Deals page for sale launch times and countdowns, as the first of the deals begin at 12:20 am PT (3:20 am ET) with new items going up for sale through the very end of the day.

Kickstarted ‘Veronica Mars’ Film Could Help Bring Back ‘Chuck’ and ‘Firefly’

Veronica Mars

Veronica Mars is one of those television series that has a small, but vocal fanbase. If you bring the long-cancelled show up to a hardcore fan, you may as well grab a cup of coffee (or a stiff drink depending on the fan) and cop a squat because the conversation is going to be long and one-sided. They are like a smaller version of Firefly fans, but more on that later. The show’s creator Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell have been desperate to revive the show in feature film form basically since it was cancelled after it initial three-year run. Warner Brothers never believed there was enough of a following for the series to merit the big budget studio affair that comes with the creation of a feature film. Finally, Thomas was able to get the WB to agree to foot the bill for a limited theatrical run, the marketing of the film, and the distribution of the film in digital form (VOD, iTunes), if he could come up with the shooting budget.

Bell and Thomas crafted a film with a minisule $2 million budget. Then they put it to the fans on Kickstarter to make the movie happen. The goal was to get the full film budget in 30 days. The full $2 million was accumulated via Kickstarter in just under 10 hours. Rewards for those who donated were many, starting from updates during production and a copy of the script on the day the movie premieres for just a $10 donation all the way up to a speaking role in the film for a $10,000 donation. So the money is in place and plans to go into production are underway. The movie will be shot this summer and have a limited theatrical release in early 2014 before heading to digital distribution.

TV Madness: NBC Renews ‘Chuck,’ Cancels ‘The Event’; ABC Cancels ‘V’

The Movie God   |  @   |

As you may have noticed, there’s been a bit of television shuffling lately. It’s that purely chaotic time of year when networks decide what shows they keep and what shows they kill, as well as what new shows they’ll order seasons of.

Last night news broke that CBS was going to keep pressing on with their seemingly doomed Two and a Half Men by replacing Charlie Sheen with Ashton Kutcher. Then, late last night, it was reported that NBC was not going to take the chance everyone thought they would on the much talked about comic book adaptation, Wonder Woman.

This has continued today with a mess of announcements and updates making their way across the ‘net. Some will not matter much to anyone while others will either excite or devastate loyal fans of these various titles facing the firing squad.

SDCC 2010: ‘Chuck’ Panel Reveals Actress Who’ll Play Chuck’s Mom

Week of Geek: San Diego Comic Con International 2010

SDCC 2010: Chuck vs. Comic Con PanelBig news for fans of NBC’s Chuck came on Saturday at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con as the actress set to play Chuck’s mom in season 4 was revealed, and it’s none other than Linda Hamilton (The Terminator). In a show that has prided itself on having a lot of popular guest stars may have topped itself with this casting. Creators Chris Fedak and Josh Schwartz spoke about the upcoming season and how the main plot running through the season will be Chuck’s (Zachary Levi) search for his mother.

If you ever get a chance to come to SDCC, I highly recommend checking out the Chuck panel, as it’s always a good time. This year’s panel opened with the Hamilton announcement and then cut into a performance by series band Jeffster dancing to Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance“. Then the cast was introduced and discussed the upcoming season as well as their yearly “Thank You” to the fans. If you’re a fan of the show, you always feel very appreciated after seeing one of their panels, and you can tell that this is a show with a very passionate fan base.

Prime Time Anarchy: ‘Heroes,’ FlashForward’ & More Canceled; ‘Chuck,’ ‘V’ Renewed

Heroes

The biggest television networks have been firing on all cylinders this week, choosing what shows to renew, what new shows to add, and what titles would be executed via cancellation.

The busiest of the powerhouse networks have been ABC and NBC, who extended and killed off some big names in their lineups. The biggest of these was easily NBC’s Heroes, which people have expected to get canceled for a long time now, but it just kept on going. There were thoughts of bringing the show, which lost its appeal by the end of the second season, back for one more closing season. Instead, NBC decided to just end the show now, but they may still do one more special finale to wrap up whatever might need wrapping up in the world of Heroes. The network also ended Law & Order (but renewed spinoff SVU) and medical dramas Mercy and Trauma.

Geeks of Doom Invades WonderCon 2010

Chuck panel WonderCon 2010Positive emotions were high among attendees at Sunday’s WonderCon 2010 Chuck panel featuring Zachary Levi, Josh Gomez, and Adam Baldwin, along with show creator/producers Chris Fedak and Josh Schwartz. This was no doubt caused by the Con’s surprise screening of the latest episode a day earlier than its regular prime time air date.

That episode, “Chuck vs. The Other Guy” was originally written as the show’s Season 3 finale, but after the network ordered more than its initial 13-episode run, the team had an option to amend it for the new finale but decided against it after reading the script.

“Essentially we had designed the whole season to get to that point… Chuck and Sarah in Paris,” Fedak said.

“It actually works out great for fans because you get what was designed to be a season finale in the middle of the season and then it’s on us to ramp it back up again, Schwartz said. “So you get twice as much excitement. It’s a win-win.”

Geeks of Doom Invades WonderCon 2010

I’m currently sitting on a flight bound for San Francisco where I will provide Geeks of Doom’s coverage of WonderCon 2010 — thus kicking off convention season, which is far more exciting than baseball and football season by default of it being acceptable for those in attendance to dress like The Batman and/or Slave Leia.

“Ridiculously excited” would be an obvious understatement.

Of course if you can’t make it to the convention this year, you can always follow @geeksofdoom on Twitter for all the latest news from WonderCon 2010 and also live vicariously through my own experience by following me at @tched.

This year the show is chock full o’ DC Comics panels — many of which feature new Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns. With the Blackest Night arc coming to a close, I’m extremely curious to hear what’ll be revealed about the next big DCU event, Brightest Day.

There’s also plenty of panels with creators and actors from this summer’s big movies — including Kick Ass, Prince of Persia, Resident Evil: Afterlife. There’s also some great stuff in TV with BBC showing the premiere of Doctor Who: Season 5 and a panel for NBC’s Chuck.
