The Video Unlimited Service is celebrating the collective cinematic works of four-time Oscar winner Woody Allen with the Woody Allen Collection. Whether you’re a fan or a film aficionado in general, there is something in this collection for everyone to enjoy. It covers four decades of Allen’s films, including some of his more popular works, rom-com Annie Hall and slapstick comedy Bananas.

Woody Allen redefined the genre of the classic comedy by breaking the established narrative conventions and creating characters and stories with unprecedented substance and depth. One of the best examples of this signature style is his 1977 dramatic comedy Annie Hall, which follows the tale of a neurotic New York comedian (Woody Allen) who falls in love with the ditsy Annie Hall (Diane Keaton). Allen won both Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for the film at the ’78 Academy Awards, solidifying his place among the other legends in film.

Here’s the full list of Woody Allen movies on sale now on the Video Unlimited service:

Annie Hall
Manhattan
The Purple Rose of Cairo
What’s New Pussycat?
Bananas
Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Too Afraid to Ask
Love and Death
Shadows and Fog
Stardust Memories

After a couple months off where we were forced to wonder what was next for Rick, Merle, The Governor and the rest of our favorite characters from The Walking Dead, they returned in a big way last night in “The Suicide King.” If you missed it, we’ve got last night’s commercial-free episode ready for you to download or stream.

The three things you’ll want to know if you haven’t yet seen the episode (the below guaranteed spoiler-free):

1. All is still not well in briefly bucolic Woodbury. We pick up right where we left off in the Daryl-and-Merle mortal (k)combat cliffhanger from the last episode, and the fireworks go off from there.

2. Rick’s mental instability and his major trust issues continue to complicate the pack’s decisions on next steps.

3. Being brought to within inches of one’s life, and watching powerlessly as the girl you love is tortured tends to change a man. Just ask the pulpy, caved-in zombie skull under Glenn’s boot.

If you’re looking for even more The Walking Dead and want to go behind the scenes of this current season, the Video Unlimited service has a number of free extras you can download today:

In addition, you’ll find lots of other things to enjoy, including a Walking Dead XMB™ theme and games to play that pit you against the zombie horde.
