We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Ally McBeal, Anvil, Bigfoot, The Hills, Nip/Tuck

New DVD Releases Oct. 6


Ally McBeal: Season 1
An anorexic lawyer (Calista Flockhart) blazes a post-feminist trail for coed bathrooms and micro-skirts at a Boston legal firm. The DVD release has been held up for 10 years because of all that music you never want to hear again.
Anvil! The Story of Anvil
With the the help of a former roadie, influential-but-luckless ‘80s metal band Anvil stage their inspirational/hilarious comeback, despite being in their 50s and Canadian. Any similarities to This Is Spinal Tap are purely eerie.
A trio of teens rescue Bigfoot from rednecks; “Family Approved” (says the sticker) fun and frivolity ensue. On the upside, Angie Everhart finally found a job; downside, it’s her first job where she keeps her clothes on.
The Hills: Season 5 Pt. 1
The show about vapid idiots for vapid idiots continues, as Heidi, Spencer, LC, Audrina, Brody and Sneezy live and love—totally unscripted—in La La Land. Yes, five minutes of actual story will indeed be spread over two DVD sets.

Nip/Tuck: Season 5 Pt. 2
Remember these guys? The Miami plastic surgeons who moved to Hollywood to work on vapid idiots like Heidi, Spencer, LC, Audrina, Brody and Sneezy? The uneven-but-very-eventful fifth season continues … poor couch.
