Today’s post here on The Bits is all about Blu-ray reviews…

First up, I’ve finally posted my in-depth thoughts on Fox’s The X-Files: The Complete Seasons 1-9 Blu-ray box set. And by in-depth, I mean in-depth – it’s a 3-pager with everything you’d want to know about the set, its quality and extras, and word of a Fox exchange program for one of the individual season sets. Do give it a read. If you love the series and are interested in the BDs, the better course is to buy the seasons individually and you’ll save money – I’ve included purchase links to all of them (plus the movies) within the review text. Enjoy!  [Read on here…]

Note that I’ve also updated my review of The X-Files: Fight the Future on Blu-ray to go with the Complete Seasons 1-9 review. (Barrie Maxwell’s review of The X-Files: I Want to Believe on Blu-ray is also available).

Not to be outdone, our own Tim Salmons has posted a review of Kino Lorber’s new Delta Force 2 Blu-ray.

And Jim Hemphill has chimed in as well today with a review of Alan Rudolph’s Welcome to L.A., also now available on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber.

Finally today, we have just one quick bit of release news: Though it’s not yet available for pre-order on, Fox has just made The Peanuts Movie available for pre-order on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray (on their Fox Connect website) with a street date of 3/8, which is the same as the regular Blu-ray and DVD. Sale price is $25.99. We expect it will be up on Amazon very soon. Thanks to Bits reader Daniel L. for the heads-up!

Back tomorrow with more. Stay tuned…
