Collectors have two cult classics hitting HD this week as January 19 sees the arrival (via Shout! Factory) of William Friedkin’s 1990 horror thriller, The Guardian and (via Warner Archive) of Stewart Raffill’s sci-fi comedy adventure Ice Pirates.
On the small screen, Syfy brings home two sets of original programming with the first season of 12 Monkeys and the fourth season of Continuum. There’s also Adventure Time: Stakes, which includes the full eight episode Cartoon Network miniseries.
