The next chapter
A prequel to The Godfather is reportedly being penned by author Ed Falco for a 2012 release. According to Entertainment Weekly, the book will be titled The Family Corleone, and it is being published with permission (and support) of the estate of Mario Puzo, who wrote The Godfather in 1969. The story will be set in depression-era New York “before the Corleones rise to power” and tells the story of how Vito Corleone “fought to survive in the brutal criminal underworld to become the influential and respected Don in The Godfather.”



Friday Night Lights' final season on DVD – then on TV

The fifth and final season of the critically acclaimed Friday Night Lights makes its broadcast television debut Friday, April 15, on NBC (it has already aired on DirecTV), but it will be available on DVD April 5. Yes, the plan seems a bit schizophrenic, but for those of us who can’t flip past The Shawshank Redemption, The Godfather, A Few Good Men or Saved By the Bell reruns – even though we have seen each dozens of times and own them on DVD – there is something special about watching it on TV. What movies and shows get you to stop flipping channels, even though you already own them?
