WBshop URL: http://www.wbshop.com/ER-The-Complete-Fifteenth-Season/1000181950,default,pd.html?cgid=&adid=WB_ADS_WBE_FB_ERS15

Synopsis: With sirens wailing, an ambulance pulls into the bay. Doctors coping with too little sleep and too many patients rush to help, making split-second judgments that can mean the difference between life and death. Gurneys roll. Tensions rise. Medical miracles — or heartbreaks — unfold. And the final season of ER goes out as it came in 15 seasons before — with an electrifying mix of complex characters, rich storylines, brisk pacing and kinetic style. Favorite characters from the past (some you expect, some may surprise you) return in this 22-episode valedictory season of the series that shattered the mold for medical dramas. You’ve come to the right place. Check in one last, momentous time at County General.

The Rite

THE RITE

The Rite is available on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, On Demand and for Download 5/17! http://bit.ly/TheRiteFB

Inspired by true events, this supernatural thriller follows a seminary student (Colin O’Donoghue) sent to study exorcism at the Vatican in spite of his own doubts about the controversial practice and even his own faith. Only when sent to apprentice with legendary Father Lucas (Anthony Hopkins), who has performed thousand of exorcisms, does his armor of skepticism begin to fall. Drawn into a troubling case that seems to transcend even Father Lucas’s skill, the young seminarian glimpses a phenomenon science can’t explain or control – and an evil so violent and terrifying that it forces him to question everything he believes. http://whatdoyoubelieve.warnerbros.com/dvd/

Review:
I love Sir Anthony Hopkins as an actor. There have been few projects he has been a part of that I haven't totally enjoyed. In THE RITE, he portrays Father Lucas, an exorcist in Rome. A young seminar student is seeking his destiny and is questioning his faith. He helps Father Lucas battle the devil and in so doing, finds his path in life.
I am not usually one to watch this type of movie, but I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. The passion Father Lucas, the skepticism of Michael Knovack hit home. It is fascinating that this story is inspired by true events.
Extras included with the DVD include an alternate ending and interviews with Father Gary Thomas who inspired the film.

Green Lantern

GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD KNIGHTS

Warner Home Video will distribute GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD KNIGHTS on June 7, 2011.
GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD KNIGHTS weaves six legendary stories of the Green Lantern Corps’ rich mythology around preparations for an attack by an ancient enemy. As the battle approaches, Hal Jordan mentors new recruit Arisia in the history of the Green Lantern Corps, telling tales of Avra (the first Green Lantern) and several of Hal’s comrades – including Abin Sur, Kilowog, Laira and Mogo. In the end, Arisia must rise to the occasion to help Hal, Sinestro and the entire Green Lantern Corps save the universe from the destructive forces of Krona.
Primetime television stars Nathan Fillion (Castle) and Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) lead a diverse array of performers as the voices behind the Green Lantern Corps.
“GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD KNIGHTS is filled with wonderful backstory and exposition on the Green Lantern Corps going far beyond Hal Jordan, making this film a perfect complement to the live-action major motion picture, Green Lantern,” said Hersin Magante, WHV Marketing Director, Family & Animation.

farewell FAREWELL
Official website: www.farewellthemovie.com

Vancouver based NeoClassics Home Entertainment will release the critically acclaimed film FAREWELL, (L’AFFAIRE FAREWELL) from Academy Award nominated Director Christian Carion and starring Emir Kusturica and Guillaume Canet, on DVD in the US April 19, 2011. The film will be available on release from Amazon, Blockbuster, iTunes, Sonic, Sony, Verizon, and is scheduled to be on Vudu and YouTube. DISH, In Demand and TVN have all picked up the film for video-on-demand (VOD) for April 12. br> This French film has garnered significant acclaim and box office success since its US theatrical debut last July. It played in dozens of cities over a period of five months, staying in release through November 2010. The film world-premiered at the Telluride Film Festival and went on to the Toronto International Film Festival.
FAREWELL is the riveting true story of a KGB colonel who, disenchanted with what the Communist ideal has become under Leonid Brezhnev, gives top-secret documents to a French businessman working in Russia, helping to hasten the end of the Cold War. He didn’t do this for money, but rather that a new world might dawn for his fellow Russians, but especially for his son.
Based on the book Bonjour Farewell by Serguei Kostine, the film, directed by Christian Carion (Academy Award® nominated JOYEUX NOEL), boasts a strong international cast starring two noted film directors who are also respected actors, Guillaume Canet (THE BEACH; MERRY CHRISTMAS, TELL NO ONE) and Emir Kusturica (THE GOOD THIEF, UNDERGROUND, ARIZONA DREAM). The ensemble also includes Alexandra Maria Lara, Ingeborda Dapkunaite, Diane Kruger, Willem Dafoe, Fred Ward and David Soul.
Thomas Reed, a former US Secretary of the Air Force and historian, wrote: “Please extend my heartiest congratulations to Fred Ward for his portrayal of Reagan. I knew ‘RR’ as well as anyone, from sharing motel rooms in Modesto to coffee in the Governor's non- mansion in Sacramento. Mr. Ward captured the mannerisms; the makeup people captured the face, the wardrobe people captured the costumes exactly. Wow!”

Review:
It has been a while since I watched a movie with subtitles, but this one was worth the effort. A story right out of the history books, you follow two men (one French; one Russian) as they fight for freedom in Russia. Both have families, both know what they are doing will make a difference in the world. The lives of both families are forever changed by their actions, but they did it for love of country, not money! That is perhaps why they succeeded.
The acting is marvelous -- you see the terror in the eyes of the family as they are taken in for interrogation. You hope that there is enough time for the French businessman and his family to get across the border before word comes about his involvement in the plot. In the end, the Russian gives his life for his cause -- and his French friend.
This is a powerful movie and you really have to wait until the closing minutes to see the intricacy of the entire affair. This is a perfect movie for the thriller fan. It will keep you on the edge of your seat until the end.

Synopsis:
Batman wings into an exciting new era, teaming with a mighty honor roll of DC Comics Super Heroes in this action-packed series. Through the show’s final 13 Animated Adventures in this 2-Disc Collection, the Dark Knight allies with Aquaman, Plastic Man, Blue Beetle, Red Tornado, Green Arrow, Wildcat, Deadman, Bronze Tiger and Atom to take on an array of evildoers ranging from mad scientists to intergalactic crooks, from power-mad dictators to out-of-control teenagers. He even travels to a parallel world, becoming the villainous Owlman! In this cool, cutting-edge and often funny series bringing back old-school comic-book styling and dry wit to crimefighting, Batman faces any peril – including other heroes stealing the show – in his relentless pursuit of justice.

Review:
Batman fans will love this DVD. The stories are cleverly written and with a very distinct sense of humor. I thought Kevin Conroy was the only voice of Batman -- but this DVD introduces us to Diedrich Bader who does an outstanding job.
This DVD pays homage to the Batman of the early to late 60s. You also are introduced to other superheroes with each episode -- like the Blue Beetle, Red Tornado, Wildcat, Deadman. You also get adventures with some of your favorites like Aquaman, Green Arrow, Atom.
I know my nephew and his children are going to love these new adventures. Brings back memories for some of us older folks as well.

Review:
Everyone loves a wedding -- and a royal wedding is indeed something special.

Sherlock - First Season SHERLOCK: SEASON ONE
Release date: November 9, 2010

Synopsis:
A contemporary take on the classic Arthur Conan Doyle stories, Sherlock is a thrilling, funny, fast-paced adventure series set in present-day London. Co-created by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Coupling) and Mark Gatiss, Sherlock stars BAFTA-nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (Hawking, Amazing Grace) as the new Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman (The Office, Love Actually), as his loyal friend, Doctor John Watson. Rupert Graves plays Inspector Lestrade. The iconic details from Conan Doyle's original books remain ? they live at the same address, have the same names and, somewhere out there, Moriarty is waiting for them. And so across three thrilling, scary, action-packed and highly modern-day adventures, Sherlock and John navigate a maze of cryptic clues and lethal killers to get at the truth.

Review:
Like so many BBC series, SHERLOCK is very well done. SHERLOCK HOLMES is a wonderful combination of crisp writing, subtle humor and engaging. With the recent big screen version of SHERLOCK HOLMES, more viewers should seek out this BBC series. It is smart and fast paced, with original stories that make you want to see more. The fact that the series is set in modern time does not detract from the original concept at all -- in fact it adds to the enjoyment and makes it easier to relate to the current time period.

Going the Distance GOING THE DISTANCE
Synopsis:
When a six week romp through NYC inadvertently becomes meaningful, Erin (Drew Barrymore) and Garret (Justin Long) decide to see if they can go the distance in a coast-to-coast relationship.

Starring: Drew Barrymore, Justin Long
Supporting actors: Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Christina Applegate

Review:
I'm not much on romantic comedies. While this one had a decent story, I was turned off by the somewhat vulgar and sophomoric dialog/situations.

HEREAFTER
Available on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, On Demand and for Download 3/15! http://bit.ly/HereafterFB

George (Matt Damon) is a blue-collar American with a special connection to the afterlife dating from his childhood. French journalist Marie (Cécile de France) has a near-death experience that shakes her reality. And when London schoolboy Marcus (Frankie and George McLaren) loses the person closest to him, he desperately needs answers. Each seeking the truth, their lives will intersect, forever changed by what they believe might – or must – exist in the hereafter. Academy Award winner* Clint Eastwood directs this haunting original tale from a screenplay by two-time Oscar nominee* Peter Morgan. Jay Mohr, Bryce Dallas Howard, Marthe Keller and Derek Jacobi also star. http://hereafter.warnerbros.com/dvd/

Review:
Clint Eastwood is a master story teller. This movie starts with an awesome visual -- a tsaumi that nearly kills Marie. You see twin brothers battling for their existence with a mother who is into drugs and alcohol. Matt Damon, one of the best actors in the business today, portrays a man who can see the future. This "gift" has prevented him from having a life, a real relationship, any emotional link to another individual. His brother can't understand why George (Damon) won't return to using his gift to make a good living rather than working in a factory. All three are searching for answers and eventually find each other. Their journeys are intertwined and their stories will keep you watching.

Synopsis:
The imaginary world of the most popular fantasy role-playing game ever comes to life in this special-effects-filled adventure. In the Empire of Izmer, magic is the key to power in both the supernatural and political realms. The Mages are a sect who know the secrets of magic and use it to hold sway over the masses. The youthful Empress Savina wants to use her powers to bring justice and prosperity to all, but Profion is an evil Mage who wants to use his knowledge of magic to overthrow Savina and establish his own despotic rule. Through deceitful means, Profion wins away the special scepter that allows him to control the nation’s Golden Dragons; Savina’s only hope to recover the scepter and the rule of Izmer is to obtain the Rod of Savrille, a talisman that will give her powers over the Red Dragons, even more powerful than their golden counterparts. As Savina sets out to gain control of the Red Dragons, she gains a number of unlikely allies.

MERLIN - THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON
Availabe on DVD: January 18, 2011
Official Site URL: http://www.bbcamericashop.com

Synopsis:
Merlin is back with even more magic, adventure and romance as the young wizard struggles to protect Prince Arthur in the perilous world of Camelot. While battling deadly assassins, mystical monsters and the most powerful sorcerers Camelot has ever seen, Merlin must work harder than ever to conceal his unique abilities, as King Uther redoubles his war against magic. And Merlin isn’t the only one whose destiny calls—Lady Morgana , Uther’s ward, discovers dangerous secrets she dare not reveal; Lancelot returns, changing everything for both Gwen and Arthur; and King Uther fall in love, little knowing that the charming Lady Catrina is secretly a hideous troll. And as Arthur continues on his path from arrogant prince to the noble and just King Arthur of legend, we see the return of the one prophesised to kill him—the mysterious druid boy, Mordred. Featuring exciting new villains, white-knuckle stunt sequences, and spectacular CGI monsters, Merlin season two is more thrilling than ever.

Review:
I love BBC series! They have great stories, marvelous acting -- and in this case -- awesome special effects. MERLIN is one of those shows you could sit and watch for a while and not get the least bit bored. You are always looking for the next turn, the next magical moment. I absolutely love the dragon (voiced by John Hurt). Merlin seeks help from the dragon reluctantly -- and must promise to free the dragon from his chains one day. Anthony Head is very good as King Uther along with all the other cast members. This would be a good one to watch with children. While there is some violence, there is also lessons to be learned about leading people (from Prince Arthur) and service others (Merlin).

ER: THE COMPLETE FOURTEENTH SEASON
Available on DVD: January 11, 2011

Synopsis:
At an ER party, Nurse Chuny Marquez recalls, “I still remember when Mark Green and Doug Ross were running the place.” “Who?” asks a newcomer. So much has happened in 14 seasons, so many people have come and gone, but the chaos of saving lives and the dedication of the people who make County General run remain. In this penultimate season of the powerful, award-winning series, personal tragedies threaten – and sometimes strengthen – relationships among the staff. And the patients bring their own compelling stories. A boy genius diagnoses his mysterious illness, a cancer-ridden prison doctor is haunted by the men he put to death, a woman arrives in the ER expecting her 13th baby. Triumph, loss, tears, joy…next!

V V: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON
Release date: November 7, 2010
Synopsis: The Visitors are among us, promoting a message of peace ... but could they be a threat to our existence? While the world quickly becomes fascinated with the V's, and their promise to share technology, FBI Counter Terrorist Agent Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell - Lost) discovers a secret that may threaten the lives of everyone close to her.

Review:
Remakes -- you never know what you'll see. When this series was announced, I thought, oh no. How can they remake the original V series. It was wonderful.
Enter the new "V" series, it is even better than the original. If there have been issues, it could be with the schedule. They have aired episodes and then there is a huge break in time before the next one is shown. However, that lapse may heighten anticipation in what will take place and make you sure not to miss the next episode. They really picked the right person to play Anna - she is soooooooo wicked!!! I look forward to the new season coming out to see how the 5th Column and the V's battle it out. Excellent job on the "remake"!!
If you don't want to purchase the DVD, you can also go to iTunes and download just an episode or two.

Out of the pages of the legendary comics and graphic novels steps Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin), a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort. Jonah’s past catches up with him when the U.S. military offers to wipe out the warrants on his head if he hunts and stop dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich).

Review:
JONAH HEX is a western version of Death Wish or other vengence-based dramas. This movie is a mix of environments -- switching from comic book sketches to live drama; further seating it into the legend of JONAH HEX as read for years by comic book fans. Josh Brolin is good as the solemn bounty hunter who has special powers over the dead. The best part of the movie, I hate to say, are the toys! Lance Reddick (Fringe) supplies Hex with some unbelievable firepower.
This is not your old fashioned western with indepth characterizations or plot. The story is a simple one - revenge. The one-liners are awesome though.

Top Gear Season 13 TOP GEAR SEASON 13
Release date: September 28, 2010
Official webiste: www.BBCAmericaShop.com

Synopsis:
Season 13 of this BAFTA-winning show skids, roars and explodes its way back onto DVD, with man versus machine experiments, exhaustive road tests of the latest models, a look back at the history of motoring, weekly power tests featuring the world’s most exotic super-cars… and a surprise revelation.

Hot on the heels of their epic challenge in Vietnam, Jeremy, Richard and James are no less ambitious for Season 13. James goes for a ride with stunt-driving legend Ken Block; Richard travels to Abu Dhabi to test the new Lambo Murcielago LP640-4 SV; the boys buy three £1,500 rear-drive sports cars and somehow find themselves entered in a terrifying French ice race. Elsewhere, Jeremy and James attempt to understand what makes a great Volkswagen advertisement – and then try to film one of their own. Rather predictably, it doesn’t go well. And in a television- first, the mysterious Stig takes off his helmet to reveal just who he really is…

The Stig continues to put the rich and famous through their paces out on the test track in ‘The Star in the Reasonably Priced Car’. Celebrities include Michael Schumacher, Olympic Gold sprinter Usain Bolt, actress Sienna Miller (who has just passed her driving test), AC/DC’s singer Brian Johnson and ‘the biggest petrolhead in the world’ Jay Leno.

Review:
I have loved this series from the first time I saw it. I would love to work with Jeremy, Richard and James as they wonder the globe testing out cars and doing their hair-raising stunts! If you love cars and have a sense of humor, this series is for you. Once you get into this show, you'll want all of the DVDs so you can catch up on what you have missed! Oh, yes, the scenery is marvelous as well. Enjoy!

Mentalist THE MENTALIST: COMPLETE SECOND SEASON
Release date: September 21, 2010
Official website: http://www.thementalistdvd.com

Synopsis:
California Bureau of Investigation consultant Patrick Jane (Simon Baker in his Emmy®-nominated role) has a blatant lack of protocol but is self-assured and driven. The former “psychic” uses his talent for seeing the clues everyone else misses to solve the most baffling crimes. But there’s more than crime that makes this season a must-see: Lisbon and Cho reveal hints about their troubled pasts. Violence fells one CBI boss, and the new boss seems more interested in authority than teamwork. And as the Van Pelt-Rigsby relationship heats up, it threatens to cool down their careers. Match wits with the 23-Episode, 5-Disc Season Two of the hit series that balances nimble humor with dark thrills.

Human Target HUMAN TARGET: COMPLETE FIRST SEASON
Release date: September 21, 2010
Official website: www.humantargetdvd.com

Synopsis:
Are you in extreme danger? Need special security? Is there a bullet out there with your name on it? Leave it to Chance. Mark Valley is protector-for-hire Christopher Chance in the thrill-packed 12-Episode Season 1 based on the DC Comics series and graphic novel. From piloting a distressed, upside-down jumbo jet to bodyguarding a D.A. targeted by a gang, Chance puts his life on the line – and each new adventure reveals a little about the mysterious past that drew him to this line of work. Chi McBride as ops manager Winston and Jackie Earle Haley as techno genius/fixer Guerrero are Chance’s ace support crew in a series bursting with “brilliantly off-kilter characters and high production values” (Mary McNamara, Los Angeles Times).

Review:
This is one of my favorite shows. I was biting my nails waiting for word of renewal for the coming year and was very pleased when it came. Can't wait to see what Chance and the gang get into this year.
The nice thing about this series is that each character is being developed. You learn a little more about Chance and Winston and Guerrero -- but only a little at a time. There is no great exposition that gives you the backstory for each of them. That is what is so enticing about the show. Who is Christopher Chance?
In addition, the guest stars included in episodes are awesome -- Lee Majors, Lennie James, Armand Asante and Amy Acker just to name a few.
This show is just "cool."

SUPERNATURAL: THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON
Release date: September 7, 2010
Official website: http:// www.supernaturaldvd.com

Product Description:
Twenty-six years ago, Sam and Dean Winchester lost their mother to a mysterious and demonic supernatural force. Subsequently, their father raised them to be soldiers. He taught them about the paranormal evil that lives in the dark corners and on the back roads of America ... and he taught them how to kill it. This haunting series follows the Winchester brothers as they crisscross the lonely and mysterious back roads of the country in their '67 Chevy Impala, hunting down every evil supernatural force they encounter along the way. At the end of the fourth season, Sam unwittingly broke the final seal – that held Lucifer captive in Hell. Now, Lucifer is free, the Apocalypse is here and angels prepare for a spectacular final battle. Against a landscape of celestial violence, natural disasters and a rising human death toll, Sam and Dean, with the help of fallen angel Castiel, must find a way to achieve the impossible: Kill the Devil.

Review:
SUPERNATURAL is one of those series that you just can't get enough of. Each episode is well written -- and well acted. The series doesn't get the recognition that others do, but it is definitely a quality product. There seems to be something for everyone. The plots are sculpted so that there is nothing wasted. You must pay attention though -- seemingly small things will come back up later in the series! When you look back over the last season, you begin to pick out your favorite episodes -- only to have them replaced by the new season! Dean and Sam Winchester are a winning pair!

SMALLVILLE: THE COMPLETE NINTH SEASON
Release date: September 7, 2010
Official website: http://www.smallvilledvd.com

Product Description
After a meteor shower bursts from the heavens, raining destruction on the unsuspecting citizens of Smallville, years pass, and the healing process leaves the town's inhabitants with scars and secrets. From the ashes of tragedy, a popular yet awkward teen attempts to decipher the meaning of his life and his clouded past. As he struggles with the transition from boyhood to adulthood, Clark finds that his strength and strange abilities set him uncomfortably apart from his peers. Soaring into its ninth season, this modern retelling of the Superman legend and its classic characters continues to blend realism, action and emotional depth to reveal a new interpretation of the enduring mythology. This season, as Metropolis's clock tower tolls our characters' darkest hour, we find Clark Kent (series star TOM WELLING) finally making his first attempts to embrace his calling as a superhero.

Review:
It is amazing to think that this series has been on for 10 years now. It just seems to get better and better and I will be said to see it end this year. However, season nine may be one of the best for SMALLVILLE. Clark continues to struggle with his destiny, but he keeps inching closer and closer as he spends more time learning from his father, Jor-el. While Lex Luthor had been the primary villain in years past, this season finds Major Zod as Clark's adversary. Callum Blue is marvelous as Zod.
The relationship between Clark and Lois really take off and it is fun to watch. The underlying drama of Oliver sinking into a very dark place. You keep hoping he'll find himself -- and return to the Green Arrow.

Fringe FRINGE: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON
Release date: September 14, 2010
Official website: http://www.thewb.com/shows/fringe-on-dvd/

Product Description
From J.J. Abrams (Lost), Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci – the team behind Star Trek and Alias – and executive producers Jeff Pinkner, J.H. Wyman and Bryan Burk, Fringe returns for a second thrilling season and continues to explore the unexplained phenomena and terrifying occurrences linked throughout the world – known simply as "The Pattern“ – in pursuit of a larger, more shocking truth. Set in Boston, the FBI's Fringe Division formed when Special Agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) enlisted the help of institutionalized "fringe" scientist Walter Bishop (John Noble) and his son, Peter (Joshua Jackson), to save her partner and lover from a mind-bending death. Through unconventional and unorthodox methods, the Fringe team imagines and tests the impossibilities while investigating unbelievable events, macabre crimes and mystifying cases involving teleportation, reanimation, genetic mutation, precognition, artificial intelligence and other fantastical theories. When the unimaginable happens, it's their job to stop it.

Review:
This is one show that I have loved from the start. The chemistry among the cast is awesome -- and it has continued through the second season. Watching the relationships grow (and fall) has been what keeps me coming back each week. What new creature or disease will they feature this week? Will Olivia and Peter get together? Will Peter learn who he really is? These are all questions that continue throughout the entire season -- and more are added. If you like a show that makes you think a little, then FRINGE is for you. You need to pay attention so that you don't miss anything. THis is a smart drama that has many, many facets. Just when you think you've figured it out -- they throw you a curve ball. Now on DVD, you can watch some of the more intense episodes -- just to make sure you haven't missed anything. Caution: Don't start watching the DVD late at night. You won't want to stop watching until you've gone through the whole thing!

With the success of the TWILIGHT series, this series was a natural follow-on. Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley are absolutely incredible actors. In addition, the writing, direction, production, pacing and acting is superb. Casting has been spot-on, even with the guest stars.

New Adventures of Old Christine THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE - SEASON THREE
Release date: July 27, 2010
I-tunes download site: http://bit.ly/WBS_Christine3

Audiences will love Emmy® Award winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Seinfeld) as Christine Campbell in the third season of this hilarious ensemble comedy.
Life gets even more complicated for Christine in season three when she recognizes that her ex-husband, Richard (Clark Gregg - Ironman), has moved on with his life and his impossible-to-hate new girlfriend, aptly named New Christine (Emily Rutherford - Van Wilder). While successfully juggling the daily stresses of motherhood and owning a woman's gym with her best friend, Barb (Wanda Sykes - The Wanda Sykes Show, Curb Your Enthusiasm), "Old" Christine realizes it may be time to move on with her love life as well. Things get steamy for Christine as she embraces a romantic relationship with Mr. Harris (recurring guest star Blair Underwood - Dirty Sexy Money, Something New, L.A. Law), a teacher at her son Ritchie's school. Will Old Christine finally find new love?

Review:
This is one of those series you are either going to love or not! I think Julia Louis-Dreyfus is wonderful as Christine. She brings a lot of the issues women face as they get older to the surface -- divorce, dating, single parenthood, etc. You watch Louis-Dreyfus's character go from self-obsessed to concerned parent to passionate lover -- all in the space of an episode! She's attractive and vivacious but with low self-esteem and self-destructive in her relationships with men. She's easily discouraged, gets upset over trivial matters, and drinks too much. She's a doting mother but insecure and frequently feels guilty about her shortcomings as a parent. It is unusual to see a series that takes on issues like sexuality head-on. Body hair, body odor, sexual positions, condoms, birth control pills and the like become topics of frequently hilarious discussion among the principals. It is both refreshing and somewhat disconcerting. I guess that is what makes this series unique as a sitcom.

Clash of the Titans CLASH OF THE TITANS
Release date: July 27, 2010
Official website: http://clash-of-the-titans.warnerbros.com/dvd/

Synopsis
In Clash of the Titans, the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, Perseus and his warriors will only survive if Perseus accepts his power as a god, defies fate and creates his own destiny.

REVIEW
I really didn't know what to expect from this movie. The reviews were mixed and like most remakes, CLASH OF THE TITANS will always be compared to the one before -- in this case the 1981 version starring Harry Hamlin as Perseus. This version is a more realistic Bronze age world, but the story hasn`t changed all that much. The citizens of Argos have become disenchanted with the rule of the Gods. The Gods have caused too much chaos and ruin to their lives so they've decided to take their destinies into their own hands, and destroy the temples and statues of the Gods. In doing so, Perseus'(Sam Worthington) family is killed by a falling statue of Zeus. When Zeus (Liam Neeson) learns of the desecration urged on by Hades (Ralph Fiennes), he decides to destroy the city in four days or they can offer the sacrifice of the King of Argos' daughter Andromeda (Alexa Davalos). In a visit to the throne room of Argos, Hades tells Perseus he is a son of Zeus, a demi-god. Being told of his near divinity, Perseus and a group of soldiers go off on their quest to save the city.
The advances in special effects are very evident in this movie. They are great! The monsters look real and the characters realistically interact with them. The giant scorpions look deadly, Medusa is creepy, and the Kraken is HUGE. I sort of had a flashback to STAR WARS as I watched the heroes riding the scorpions with the help of a tribe of warriors made of stone. The photography is awesome. The special features are wonderful as well. You follow the crew as they build the ships and sets. This project became a labor of love for everyone. This is a good adventure movie everyone should enjoy.

ER: The Complete 13th Season ER: THE COMPLETE 13th SEASON
Release date: July 6, 2010

Synopsis:
Shaking things up: Former paramedic, now intern Dr. Tony Gates arrives with a straightforward attitude and a complicated personal life. Except for his devotion to healing, he’s Gallant’s opposite: brash, cocksure, with a bad-boy past – and maybe he’s the right prescription for Neela’s broken heart. Really shaking things up: Contentious Weaver leaves County General for a career move you wouldn’t expect. And the profound dramas of the outside world continue to make their way to the ER, including a hostile patient whose real condition is a secret even to himself, homeless children who escape to a magic world of their own making, and a Christmas miracle. Then again, miracles happen every day at County General.

REVIEW
This series just keeps going and going. This season opens with trama in the ER -- both patients and doctors are affected. The drama builds as Abby has her baby and Sam is kidnapped by her ex-husband. Each episode of the series is filled not only with your usual hospital drama, but deep charcterizations that have made this series a favorite for years. Even if you haven't been following the series for years, you can enjoy the well-written episodes that involve some very good segments showing surgery and trama medicine, but you'll quickly get caught up in the personal lives of the staff at County General. This season includes guest appearances from Forrest Whitaker, who received an emmy nomination for his role as Curtis Ames, a former patient of Dr. Kovac who sues him for malpractice.

Dark Blue DARK BLUE – THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON
Release date: July 6, 2010 exclusively online at WBSHOP.com and TNT.tv

DARK BLUE (from iconic producer Jerry Bruckheimer and starring Golden Globe® winner Dylan McDermott) is the story of Lt. Carter Shaw (McDermott) and his special undercover task force that tread the line between right and wrong to bring down a criminal underworld.
Experience each heart-stopping moment again or for the first time with the release of SEASON 1 on DVD before the start of the all-new DARK BLUE Season 2, August 4 only on TNT.

REVIEW
If you are looking for a good, tight, gritty police drama, look no further than DARK BLUE. From the pilot onward, you get a little information on each of the main characters -- just enough to keep you watching! Dylan McDermott is an awesome actor and he fits the persona outlined for Lt. Carter Shaw. In the pilot, one of the main characters says, he will do anthing to protect you and anything to get the bad guy. It's just hard figuring out which one comes first."
Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, you get that feel of realism and you are on the edge of your seat with each episode. There is a good bit of violence, so it may be a bit much for some. But the violence fits the feel of this cable TV show -- dark and hard. I can't wait to see what season two brings.

NIP/TUCK: THE SIXTH AND FINAL SEASON
Release date: June 8, 2010
19 episodes on five discs
Featurette: Tell Me What You Don't Like About Yourself--The Psychology

Sex. Seduction. Liposuction. Find them all in the fearless Nip/Tuck, the award-winning series that's the scalpel's edge of entertainment...and the spark for debate about what cosmetic surgery can or cannot bring to a patient's life. Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon play plastic surgeons/best friends whose glamorous South Beach practice is a revolving door for Season 4's hot-button issues (including a terrifying story arc about an organ-harvest ring) and human foibles (a ventriloquist wants to look like his dummy). Guest stars include Jacqueline Bissett, Larry Hagman, Alanis Morissette, Mo'Nique, Rosie O'Donnell, Brooke Shields and more. Thrills, surprises, shocks, stars abound in this 5-disc set. And all it takes is a little Nip/Tuck.

Edge of Darkness EDGE OF DARKNESS
Release date: May 11, 2010
Official website: http://www.edge-of-darkness.com

Synopsis:
The bullet that killed his daughter was meant for Boston cop Thomas Craven. That's what police brass and Craven himself think, but that's not what the investigation finds. Clue after clue and witness after witness, the search leads him into a shadowy realm where money and political intrigue intersect. If Craven wasn't a target before, he and anyone linked to his inquiry now is. Mel Gibson stars in his first screen lead in eight years, making Craven's grief palpable and his quest for payback stone-cold and relentless. Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) directs from a screenplay co-written by The Departed's William Monahan. Gibson is back, taking us to the edge and into the sinister darkness.

REVIEW
If you are looking for a tight, suspenseful thriller, EDGE OF DARKNESS may be for you. While there is a good bit of violence, there is also a good story supporting all actions taken. Gibson is right on as the vengeful father seeing justice for his slain daughter. You see him struggle with his desire for vengence while trying to honor the sense of justice he has lived by all his life. You feel his anger, rage, sorrow and you hope that in the end the bad guys get their due.
Director Martin Campbell keeps things moving through the Boston locale, with a nice mix of action and introspective moments between Craven and his daughter. The flashbacks add depth to the drama, and more meaning to the relationship between father and daughter.

HAMLET
Available on DVD: May 4th
Official Site URL: http://www.bbcamericashop.com

Synopsis:
David Tennant and Patrick Stewart star in this critically acclaimed production of Shakespeare’s masterpiece from Britain’s renowned Royal Shakespeare Company. No recent stage production in Britain has attracted the excitement and nearly unanimous critical praise as this Hamlet. Tennant's interpretation was recognized as defining the role for a generation, and Stewart’s complex Claudius won the Olivier award, Britain’s highest stage honor. In this specially-shot screen version, filmed on location rather than in the theater, Tennant and Stewart reprise their roles. Dynamic, exciting and contemporary, it breathes new life into Shakespeare's greatest play.

Featured Actors: David Tennant (Doctor Who), Patrick Stewart (X-Men, Star Trek: The Next Generation), Oliver Ford Davis (Waking the Dead), Penny Downie, Mariah Gale

REVIEW
This is a modern production of the play by Shakespeare. I can't remember if I have ever really sat through the play before, but I did yesterday. THe Royal Shakespeare Company is marvelous, and I kept thinking of what we have done to the English language over the years. Patric Stewart is marvelous as Claudius and the ghost; David Tennant shows tremendous range as he runs the emotional gamut of love, pain, comedy, sorry and shock. While we have seen this plot played out in many different ways over the years, this production has it all. Prince Hamlet of Denmark learns that his father's death was not an accident, but murder so that his uncle could marry his mother and become King. The ghost of his father tells Hamlet of this as he wanders the dark halls of the castle at midnight. Poor Hamlet is torn in his indecision about how to handle the situation.
This is indeed a memorable production. With this cast and modern dress, it could be just the one you will sit through.

Survivors-Original Series THE SURVIVORS - The Original Series
Release date: April 27, 2010

The original SURVIVOR series, broadcast by the BBC between 1975 and 1977 was one of the most popular series of all time. Terry Nation does a wonderful job of developing his characters so that you learn a little about them each episode. In the original series, you follow a few individuals that survived a deadly disease that struck the world with swiftly and without warning. This is the chilling story of some of those who survive -- Jenny, Greg, Abby and others -- determined to construct a new community from the surrounding wasteland where the technology and skills of the old life have become obsolete.

REVIEW
The focus of the series lands on three main characters. Abby Grant, a very middle class mother, who is played by Carolyn Seymour. Ian McCulloch plays Greg Preston, a Civil Engineer and someone who seems to find some sense of purpose in an otherwise unfulfilled life after the coming of the "death". Lucy Fleming's Jenny Richards is written very variably from occasionally being utterly wet to eventually becoming something of an action heroine towards the end of the show.

THE SURVIVORS: COMPLETE SEASON ONE AND TWO

REVIEW
In the revived version of the SURVIVORS, you fairly quickly see a group forming from some of the most disparate and desperate people. This series quickly becomes addictive -- you want to see what happens to the group next, what challenges they will be faced with as they struggle to survive.
What would you do if there was no electricity, no cell phones, no government? You see this small group of people struggle to survive, gathering food and water from warehouses, stores, homes. They fight for their survival against other looters and finally the government that is established in these primitive times.

THE PRISONER
Key Actors: Jim Caviezel, Ian McKellen, Ruth Wilson, Jamie Campbell-Bower, Hayley Atwell, Lennie James
Release date: April 6, 2010

Synopsis:
The Prisoner miniseries is a reinterpretation of the British 1960s cult hit series that starred and was co-created by Patrick McGoohan. The Premise : A man, known as Six, finds himself inexplicably trapped in The Village with no memory of how he arrived. As he explores his environment, he discovers that his fellow inhabitants are identified by number instead of name, have no memory of any prior existence, and are under constant surveillance. Not knowing whom to trust, Six is driven by the need to discover the truth behind The Village, the reason for his being there, and most importantly -- how he can escape. Jim Caviezel (The Passion of the Christ, The Thin Red Line) plays the role of Six; and two-time Oscar nominee Ian McKellen (Lord of the Rings, The Da Vinci Code) co-stars as Two.

REVIEW
The problem with remakes is that it has to be better than the original -- or different enough to give you something else to think about as you watch it. While this version of the Prisoner is good, it will never surpass the original -- only because the original was "the" original. No one else had perceived of a story quite like the original Prisoner scenario and Patrick McGoohan was such a fine actor, it would be hard to overcome any role associated to him.

That said, Jim Caviezel and Ian McKellen are outstanding. Since this is a miniseries rather than a regular TV series, there is more interaction between 2 and 6 and as a result, you get to know more about each of the principal characters. The story is more tightly written than the original because of the restricted timeframe they were working with. All in all, the new Prisoner is worth watching. The visuals are stunning!

Poseidon POSEIDON
Release date: April 6, 2010

Synopsis:
It's New Year?s Eve on the Poseidon. Partying voyagers toast the future. The future comes in a rush: a 150- foot rogue wave flips the cruise ship over?and a struggle to survive begins. Director Wolfgang Petersen (The Perfect Storm) returns to the sea with a thrill-packed, cutting-edge screen adaptation of Paul Gallico's novel The Poseidon Adventure. Josh Lucas, Kurt Russell, Richard Dreyfuss, Emmy Rossum and more play passengers who must rely on each other as they seek safety through the water, flames and wreckage of an upside-down world.

REVIEW
The special effects are the real stars of this movie. Wolfgang Peterson has pulled together a wonderful remake of the 1972 disaster movie THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE. However, this version is far more spectacular, with shocking digital effects, massive sets, amazing stunt-work and enough fire and water to fill five movies with challenging worst-case scenarios. A small group of survivors (including Josh Lucas, Kurt Russell, Emmy Rossum, and Richard Dreyfuss) begin their long climb climb upwards, to the ship's hull, in their treacherous quest for a safe exit. Unfortunately, not a lot of time was spent on character development for any of the principal characters. You are fed bits and pieces here and there, but you don't get close to any of them. However Petersen's handling of non-stop action is so slick and professional that you can't wait to see what obstacle will be put in front of the survivors next! The capsizing scenes are nothing less than awesome, with some effects so real (and so horrifying) that younger and more sensitive viewers may need to look away. Even without getting involved with a character, POSEIDON is certainly never boring.

Ripley's RIPLEY'S BELIEVE IT OR NOT
Release date: March 16, 2010
Official website: http://bit.ly/WAC_Ripley

Here is something unusual for you to consider. The all-new Warner Archive release of Ripley’s Believe It Or Not; the 2-Disc DVD set contains all 24 theatrical shorts circa 1930-1932 starring Mr. Ripley as your host through the world of “Believe It or Not”.
The collection is being made available for the first time ever on DVD by the Warner Archive starting March

. REVIEW
Everyone knows of Ripley's Believe it or Not, but I wonder how many have actually seen any of the episodes from the show. This recent release not only has Robert Ripley stalking about unbelievable things -- but showing you them through his drawings. As a cartoonist, Ripley also would draw to illustrate the item he was talking about. These new videos were part of the regular cinema entertainment prior to a major feature. Made in the 1930s, they were both entertaining and informative.

Ninja Assassin NINJA ASSASSIN
Release Date: March 16, 2010
Official website: http://ninja-assassin-movie.warnerbros.com/dvd/

Synopsis:
The filmmakers behind The Matrix and V for Vendetta bring new blood to martial arts movies in this smashing adventure. Korean pop star Rain plays heroic, deadly Raizo. Trained from childhood in the way of the Ozunu Clan ninja, he is stalked by fellow warriors and their dojo patriarch (martial arts legend Sho Kosugi)…and is on the run with a Europol agent (Naomie Harris) who has proof the clan sells assassination services to governments.

Video Clip:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQv1dk_dXIc

REVIEW
From the first opening sequence, with body parts and blood flying around the screen, you know that this is going to be an energetic movie about children taught to be assassins -- assassins like no other - Ninjas! Ninjas, an order of ancient warriors, move like ghosts, coming into a room like whisps of smoke!
I can see where men (age group 18-28) would love this movie. Rain does a wonderful job as Raizo -- a ninja that breaks with his clan and defends a researcher who is looking into ninja and the nine clans represented. The final battle between Raizo and martial arts legend Sho Kosugi is outstanding.

THE BROTHERS WARNER
Release date: March 9, 2010

REVIEW
The producer of this film, Cass Warner, is actually the granddaughter of Harry Warner, one of the four original Warner Brothers. This documentary focuses on the studio and the story of the four Warner Brothers themselves, starting back in the 19th century and their ventures into the entertainment industry that predate the forming of Warner Brothers the company by twenty years. It goes forward past the time that they exited the running of Warner Brothers the company and talks about the lives of the brothers themselves. Although there were real problems between the brothers in their own private lives, they were devoted to making movies. This is a very fascinating documentary for those interested in film history. Given Warner Bros. place in the movie industry today, it gives a different perspective on the movie industry from the early days through today.

THE BLIND SIDE
Release date: March 23, 2010
Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Download, at http://bit.ly/blfduZ

THE BLIND SIDE is a 2009 American drama–sports film written and directed by John Lee Hancock, and based on the 2006 book THE BLIND SIDE: EVOLUTION OF A GAME by Michael Lewis.[2][3] The storyline features Michael Oher, an offensive lineman who plays for the Baltimore Ravens of the NFL. The film follows Oher from his impoverished upbringing, through his years at Wingate Christian School (a fictional representation of Briarcrest Christian School in suburban Memphis, Tennessee[4]), his adoption by Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy, and on to his position as one of the most highly coveted prospects in college football. For her performance, Sandra Bullock won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role as well as an Academy Award for Best Actress. The film itself also received an Academy Award for Best Picture nomination.
The film stars Quinton Aaron as Michael Oher, Sandra Bullock as Leigh Anne Tuohy, Tim McGraw as Sean Tuohy, Oher's adoptive parents, and Kathy Bates as Miss Sue, Oher's tutor. The movie also features appearances by several current and former NCAA coaches, including SEC coaches Houston Nutt and Ed Orgeron (Oher's coaches in college, though Nutt represented Arkansas at the time and therefore does so in the film) and Nick Saban (who was at LSU at the time and represents them in the film), former coaches Lou Holtz, Tommy Tuberville, Phillip Fulmer, as well as recruiting analyst Tom Lemming.

REVIEW
If you are looking for a feel-good movie to watch with the whole family, check out THE BLIND SIDE. This heart-warming story teaches a number of lessons -- sharing, kindness, family! Sandra Bullock is awesome as Leigh Anne Tuohy, a Memphis Mom who takes in "Big Mike", a lumbering black youth who had no family but a big heart and a desire to belong somewhere. Along with his big size, he could play sports. The Tuohys took him in, opened up their hearts and home to him.
This is a wonderful, true story -- meant to be shared.

Tom & Jerry's Greatest Chases #4 TOM AND JERRY'S GREATEST CHASES, VOLUME 4
Warner Home Video - 98 min - Region: 1 (USA & territories, Canada)

REVIEW
Parents rejoice! Another Tom & Jerry DVD is available for you and your children to enjoy! Since the 1940s, Tom and Jerry have provided cat and mouse antics for all ages. What kid hasn't enjoyed these characters created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera? I enjoyed them when I was a kid; now my nieces & nephews and their children are enjoying these videos. The other advantage is that they are short, so they will hold the attention of the smallest children. The giggles that come from the room when I put on this DVD is pure pleasure talking!

Among some of my favorite shorts in this collection are:
"Little Quacker" (1950) and "Just Ducky" (1953), featuring Jerry's little friend duck
"Tom and Chérie" (1955) features Tom, Jerry, and Jerry's assistant Tuffy in the third "Mouseketeer" short (after "The Two Mouseketeers" (1952) and "Touche', Pussy Cat!" (1954))
"Jerry & Jumbo" (1953) featuring Jerry and his baby elephant friend Jumbo, who fell off a circus train
"Little School Mouse" (1954) entertains the notion of Jerry teaching Tuffy how to outwit cats and ends up with him needing to learn a thing or two himself
Watching these videos not only harkens back to a different time, but it presents a certain innocence to cartoons that I still love after after all these years. The only blood you'll see is the ketchup used to fool Tom into thinking he's bleeding every now and then. Try to find that in today's cartoons!
Be sure to look for Tom and Jerry's Greatest Chases, Volume 4. Share them with those you love -- laugh together! It's good for your health!

SCARECROW AND MRS. KING - SEASON ONE
Release date: March 22, 2010

It has been a LONG time coming, but this 1983 series has finally come to DVD. The series ran from October 3, 1983, to May 28, 1987 on CBS. The show starred Kate Jackson and Bruce Boxleitner as divorced housewife Amanda King and top-level "Agency" operative Lee Stetson who begin a strange association, and eventual romance, after encountering one another in a subway station.

REVIEW
Has it really been that long ago? I guess time has flown by, but it was still good to see this series finally hit DVD release. I know a lot of people have been waiting to see it!

This was one of those charming duos that had great chemistry. Bruce Boxleitner and Kate Jackson were marvelous together. Mrs. King was always getting embroiled in one adventure after another. It was comical watching her try to balance between her family and the "spy" business.

I think this DVD -- and the entire series -- will be a great addition to my library. There are a number of episodes I'll want to watch over and over again. The relationship between Lee Stetson and Mrs. King will remind you somewhat of other old classics -- Beauty and the Beast, for one!

REVIEW
Clint Eastwood is a tremendous story teller. He has proven time and time again that he knows what stories to bring to life on the big screen. In this collection, you will share some special moments with Clint Eastwood -- watch him play piano, talk about some of his movies and watch him work as he directs some of his greatest movies. Even if you don't like Clint Eastwood, this collection of work is impressive in its breadth of subject matter. You go from Dirty Harry to Million Dollar Baby. The emotion that comes across the screen is unlike any other. "Do you feel lucky?" "Make My Day." These are just a few of the superb lines he delivers -- as only Clint Eastwood could. Go back in time a bit to relive the emergence of Eastwood as Harry Callaghan. See if one of your favorites is included in the mix!

REVIEW
While this series was released in 1986, it holds up quite well. This thriller showcases the talent of Bob Peck as Detective Inspector Ronald Craven. It won both the Best Drama Serial and Best Original Music at the 1986 BAFTAs.
Not only is this an intense story that gives you a flavor of the British justice system, it has a hint of politcal activism and is a portrait of a father's search for the truth behind the shooting death of his daughter.
Each episode builds as Craven learns more about his daughter's activities and what could have led to her death. This is a top-rate story and production.

If the title sounds familiar, it's because the current movie out with Mel Gibson under the same name was based on this story.

SOUTHLAND: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON UNCENSORED
Release date: January 26, 2010
Official web site: www.southlanddvd.com

Synopsis:
L.A. is sandy beaches and Bel-Air mansions and flawless bodies. And it’s gang bangers and drug deals gone wrong and apartments crammed with almost as many people as cockroaches. It’s Southland, the place where a rookie cop and his savvier, veteran colleagues struggle to make a difference. Here in a 2-Disc Set are all seven Season One Episodes of the gripping, lightning-paced series about the men and women who live their lives – professional and personal – on a jagged edge, taking on criminals, victims and a sprawling city tainted by vice and seething with danger.

REVIEW
I just love this show!!!! Sometimes I don't get all the British humor or recognize all the names of people being thrown about, but these guys do have the best job on Earth! I normally don't like comedy shows of any kind. People acting stupid just don't do it for me, but these gentlemen are just hysterical! They will take cars and do some amazing things with them! In addition, their reviews of some of the new "muscle" cars is wonderful. They pull no punches in their review of Ferrari, Astin Martin, Alfa Romeo. On TOP GEAR 11, they race in the French Alps against extreme skiers, race across Japan (a Nissan car versus public transport), a cross-country fox hunt (with Jeremy as the prey), and a Brits versus German Top Gear challenge. Their race across Japan reminded me of times when I've been in foreign countries and couldn't read the road signs!
In TOP GEAR 12, the guys travel to the USA to take three new generation big-engine 'muscle' cars on an epic road trip from San Francisco to the heart of Utah; are challenged to drive from the heart of Switzerland to the North West coast of England on just one tank of fuel and James travels to the frozen North to discover why the Finns are such good racing drivers.
If you love cars, even if you don't, but enjoy good humor, you should pick up these DVDs. Top Gear 11's 2-disc set gives you about 6 hours of enjoyment. Top Gear 12's 4-discs provides you with 7 3/4 hours of fun.
Aside from all the car stuff, they also visit some of the most beautiful countries -- the photography is just outstanding!

ROBIN HOOD: SEASON THREE
Release date: January 12, 2010
Official website: www.bbcamerica.com

Synopsis:
The legend continues... With new allies and old enemies, Robin Hood returns for a third series full of thrilling adventures as Robin and his gang continue to outwit the dastardly Sheriff and his forces. As the series begins, the outlaws are in disarray. Marian is dead and Robin has split up the gang and launched a solo mission to avenge her and kill Gisborne. It is only the intervention of the mysterious Tuck that stops Robin joining Marian in an early grave. Which is bad news for Gisbourne and the Sheriff. Under pressure from Prince John, they must take down Robin Hood once and for all. When the prince, tired of their ineffectualness and bad leadership, arrives in Nottingham to reprimand the Sheriff and Gisbourne, it becomes clear that there is only room forone sidekick at his table,but which one?

REVIEW
I have loved this series from the very beginning. Jonas Armstrong is wonderful as Robin Hood -- and he has such good company in the role from Errol Flynn to Russell Crowe! There were a number of new twists in the story this season. Picturing Guy of Gisbourne as a good guy was a bit hard, but had the story continued, I think it might have worked out. Guy was indeed seeking power, but you see ocasions of hope for the true honest self to emerge. He is as haunted by Marion as Robin; so our two main characters have much in common. Richard Armitage, by the way, made a marvelous Guy of Gisbourne. Additions to the cast in this season were very worthwhile. Brother Tuck, David Harewood and Kate, Joanne Froggatt, added considerably to the enjoyment of this season. However, my favorite character was, and is, Much portrayed by Sam Troughton. The ever faithful right-hand man of Robin added a sense of humor and levity to the series.

ER: THE COMPLETE TWELTH SEASON
Release date: January 12, 2010
Official site: www.ertv.com

Synopsis:
Look who's checked in at County General: Dr. Victor Clemente arrives with a motor mouth, a load of talent, and a questionable past. Imposing, no-nonsense Eve Spellman takes charge (and almost takes over) as the new nurse manager. And hunky paramedic Tony Gates proves he's more than a guy on the make. Season 12 also brings spiraling drama and suspense to the lives of ER veterans. Abby and Kovacs share unexpected news. Gallant comes home from Iraq to be with Neela. Pratt goes to Darfur to work with Carter. And burn victims, stabbing victims, gunshot victims, assault victims--young and old, male and female, grateful and combative --keep the ER on edge. And sometimes over the edge.

REVIEW
This is one of those series that has had a number of ups and downs over its long run. When George Clooney left the series, there were predictions of cancellation -- but here it is, 12 years later -- still going. I can't say that this year has been as strong as some of the others. Many people have mentioned they didn't care for the Africa episodes featuring Dr. Carter (Noah Wyle). However, there were a number of wonderful episodes, which critics noted with emmy nominations to folks like James Woods.
Overall, a good season with varied stories and more of the internal turmoil between staff and management. There were some wonderful guest stars as well this season -- including Armand Assante, Ernie Hudson and John Stamos. Fans of the series will not want to miss an episode.

GUEST REVIEW:
I try go get different points of view -- especially since these are "family" videos and there are certain issues parents need to be aware of "before" watching these videos with their children. Here is a guest review of several of the latest DVDs from the WB that fall into the "family video" category."

Review for PUBLIC ENEMIES, FIRST FLIGHT and WONDER WOMAN
First of all I would like to say that I enjoyed all three of the movies a lot. The quality of the DC movies really does surpass that of Marvel's Animation department. They were all well done and the stories were very faithful to the comics. I understand that they are PG-13 movies but was very disappointed at how kid unfriendly they were. The violence in WONDER WOMAN was the biggest set back that I found. Most of the inuendo would be lost on younger viewers but within the opening battle sequence there is a beheading.
In FIRST FLIGHT, the language was more apparent and the violence was not as bad except for the impalement of the Battika (spelling) and that of the rogue pirate.
PUBLIC ENEMIES I was just disappointed in the language. The violence was not over the top but in several situations another word could have been chosen to make it more acceptable. I enjoyed the movie and found it close to the comic storyline. The artwork was also rendered to closely resemble the original artists work. Nice job on the movies overall but it will be a while before the kids will be watching any of them.
JOHNNY QUEST has been fun to watch. A little different then the original Johnny I remember but the kids enjoy it regardless.

GENESIS II
Release date: October 6, 2009
Official website: www.warnerarchive.com

GENESIS II, synopsis:
“My name is Dylan Hunt. My story begins the day on which I died.” Gene Roddenberry, the creator of Star Trek, brings fans another enthralling tale of the future. Set in a time between now and the era of the starship Enterprise, Genesis II follows Hunt (Alex Cord), who awakes after 154 years of suspended animation into a post-apocalyptic world that’s torn between the peace-loving citizens of Pax and the militaristic, mutant Tyranians. Both want Hunt to join their cause. But the Tyranians have two cruel weapons to persuade Hunt: a device of torture called a stim. And an alluring mutant (Mariette Hartley) with two navels…and one ice-cold heart.

REVIEW:
This was an interesting flash-from-the-past -- a series developed by Gene Roddenberry that gave us a glimpse of what the future might be. There are a number of very familiar faces in this pilot episode/movie. Mariette Harley plays a mutant with two navels; Percy Rodriguez is the leader -- many faces from STAR TREK are sprinkled throughout.
This seemed like a very familiar story -- a scientist wakes up 154 years after he is placed in suspended animation. He finds a world very different from what he left -- because of bomb has destroyed many of the major cities. Our hero, Dylan Hunt, is introduced to the new environment, first by the powerful Pax and then he sees the Tyranians. Two classes still in conflict.He must discover who are the good-guys.
Alex Cord and Mariette Hartley are wonderful in their roles. Given that this was made in 1973, many of the things we can do today had to be done with actual sets and models. Still, the story is a good one. The idea of a subterranian transit system is interesting; the idea of a device "stim" to stimulate pleasure and pain, etc.
This could have been an interesting TV series, but producers decided to go with the "Planet of the Apes" series instead. Roddenberrry came back with a second pilot, PLANET EARTH, that also fell by the wayside. Roddenberry used the name "Dylan Hunt" and a number of the ideas from this pilot on ANDROMEDA which starred Kevin Sorbo.

Nip/Tuck 5 NIP/TUCK SEASON 5 PART 2
Release date: October 6, 2009
Official website: www.niptuckthedvd.com

Synopsis:
L.A. continues to be the land of plenty for the relocated plastic surgeons of McNamara/Troy. An aspiring rapper wants more booty to shake, so would the docs please put some junk in her trunk? Can would-be vampires have those nasty neck wounds concealed? Can a yoga expert with a giant, uh, appendage have it shortened? Yes to all the above. And maybe everyone, even the docs, should also have a check-up from the neck up.
Season 5 wraps with 8 episodes of envelope-pushing surgery, surprise, silliness and seriousness. Yes, seriousness. Because Christian now battles the Big C. Sean copes with the aftermath of the knife attack. And Liz says “I do” to the last person you’d imagine. Time to stretch your imaginations, fans.

SCARE TACTICS SEASON 3 PART 1
Release date: October 6, 2009
Official website: www.wbshop.com

Synopsis
Comedy superstar Tracy Morgan (30 Rock, Saturday Night Live) hosts Season Three of the smash prankster show Scare Tactics! A psycho invades the home of a babysitter and her charge. A mutant creature bursts from a lab’s oversized cocoon. A horror film director silences his critics…permanently. From outlandish to ghoulish to downright terrifying, these are just some of the elaborate scenarios into which the victims (or prey!) are lured. Hidden cameras capture their always primal, often hilarious reactions, with the results then edited and scored to create “mini-movies” where the victim is the star and their acting is for real!

The Mentalist THE MENTALIST - SEASON ONE
Release date: September 22, 2009
Official website: www.thementalistdvd.com

Synopsis
“A mentalist is a master manipulator of thought and behavior.” The mentalist is Patrick Jane (Simon Baker in an acclaimed performance), a celebrity psychic whose wife and child are viciously murdered by an elusive serial killer called Red John. Devastated, Patrick admits his paranormal act is fake, renounces his earlier life and uses his astonishing skills of observation and analysis – talents that made him appear psychically gifted – to bring killers to justice. At crime scenes across California, Patrick now helps an elite team of detectives break their toughest cases. But no matter how many criminals he catches, Patrick never forgets his central goal: Find Red John. And bring him down.

REVIEW OF DVD

I have to admit, I didn't watch this show much this year, but have always been interested in it. Simon Baker is really easy on the eyes, and I loved him in THE GUARDIAN. He is wonderful in the role of Patrick Jane, a consultant who helps the California Bureau of Investigation with murder cases.
I love character based action/adventure shows and this one fills both bills. There is enough action each week and the characters are rich and keep me coming back for more. Thank heavens for the DVD! I started watching yesterday and 4 hours later wondered why I hadn't stayed up to watch this program throughout the year. CBS has been great at putting the show on at different times as well, but if you are like me, the DVD is what you need. From the first story, the characters, work on a number of levels. As you progress through the DVD, you see them grow and get better and closer. While Patrick is the focus of nearly everything that goes on, the B stories are very good as well. I love the growing love story between Rigsby and Van Pelt. Rigsby is a big football kind of guy who is quite shy and madly in love with the new agent, Van Pelt -- but too shy to tell her of his feelings. When a baddie comes after Jane, Rigsby is attacked and you see there are feelings between the two, but now you have a situation -- on-the-job love stories never work out.
Robin Tunney is very good as Agent Teresa Lisbon. As the series begins, she is the foil for Jane, but as the series has progressed, you learn more about her troubled childhood and you can appreciate her character a bit more.
If you love the show, you'll truly enjoy the DVD.
The new season premieres September 24 at 10:00pm ET.

REVIEW:
I have been a fan of SMALLVILLE since it began -- wow eight years ago! Where has the time gone? It has been wonderful seeing the actors grow into their roles. While I miss John Schneider and Michael Rosenbaum, Kristen Kreuk did come back for a brief period as Lana Lang. However, Tess Mercer's addition (portrayed by Cassidy Freeman) has brought new life to the Luther lab and this DVD series may be the best yet. There is plenty of action and with Clark getting help from Oliver Queen (Justin Harley) as Green Arrow. Allison Mack has always been wonderful as Chloe and she continues to light up the screen whenver she is part of it. Can't say I'm a huge fan of Erica Durance. Her Lois Lane leaves me wanting something more. In some episodes she is added more as an after thought than as a plot staple.
All in all though, SMALLVILLE fans will have a lot to talk about and with the coming new season, there are hopes for even greater adventures for Clark Kent.

REVIEW OF DVD

I have loved this show from the very beginning. FRINGE is a very thought-provoking show that has a definite grounding in real science. Perhaps that is why I like it so much. While I can watch some "fantasy" programs, programs that have some basis in reality seem to work better for me. While some of the stories are pretty much out there, the interaction with the characters is just perfect. You have Olivia, an FBI agent now assigned to investigate strange occurances, ala X-Files. You have Walter, somewhat of a mad scientist, but perhaps he is more of a visionary. His son, Peter, acts as a guardian for Walter, who gets released from a mental institution to help Olivia, is somewhat of a con-man, collaborator, partner to both Olivia and Walter. The acting is just top-rate -- as is the writing. Created by J.J. Abrams, you see a tinge of ALIAS, but only that. The chemistry for all of the characters is wonderful and I am anxious to see what happens for the upcoming second season. This is like a melodrama that teases you with clues each week. You don't have to watch each week to enjoy the show though -- but watching each week increases the enjoyment -- at least it does for me.
The DVD is marvelous. There are extra features on each of the 7 discs included in the package. You will hear from J.J. Abrams about how he created the series, you will hear from the writers and special effects genuises who have brought this show to the small screen. This DVD is definitely one you will enjoy watching on many levels.

REVIEW:
This is one of those shows that has grown better over time. We've seen George Clooney launch his career on this show. Season 11 includes Ray Liotta's emmy winning episode "Time of Death", a real time episode following the final 43 minutes of his character's life. Also during this season, Alex Kingston, Ming Na and Noah Wyle exit County General. The show continues to have wonderful guest stars including Red Buttons, Danny Glover, Cynthia Nixon, Francis Fisher and Sharif Atkins.

While the staff holds many of the plots together, ER includes some of the most memorable patient storylines. New doc Ray Barnett (Shane West) juggles medicine and music, Sam and Luka continue their turbulent relationship, and Corday is punished for performing an illegal operation.

It is good to see that the series are now coming out more quickly. You have less time to wait to see this favorite series -- on your schedule.

Third Watch THIRD WATCH: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON
Release Date: July 7, 2009

The real heroes that keep New York City and its residents safe are back for their sophomore season. Working the 3-11 p.m. shift (known as the "third watch"), these ordinary people perform extraordinary feats of bravery on a daily basis. Featuring an all-star cast including Bobby Cannavale, Eddie Cibrian, Michael Beach, and Kim Raver, Third Watch portrays the best - and sometimes the worst - of "the city's finest." Nine years after the second season's TV debut, Warner Home Video is releasing the highly anticipated Third Watch: The Complete Second Season DVD on July 7, 2009.

Created by John Wells (ER, The West Wing) and Edward Allen Bernero (Criminal Minds), THIRD WATCH: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON is an Emmy® and Peabody® Award winning series that follows professional rescuers and first responders as they take on crime, medical emergencies, and blazing buildings in the largest city in America. Police, firefighters and paramedics all work together as the show explores the intricacies of their relationships on the streets, in the station, and back at home. Episodes include situations ranging from dangerous (tracking a sniper who targets cops) to playful (a football match between fire departments), to the mundane (a frequent 911 dialer). These heroes risk their lives every day so we can sleep soundly, knowing that we're protected by the "third watch."

"THIRD WATCH: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON contains 22 action-packed episodes that focus on the unsung heroes of New York City," said Rosemary Markson, WHV Vice President, TV & Special Interest Marketing. "After the recent event on the Hudson, the world is increasingly fascinated by these first responders, and Warner Home Video is proud to present the second season on DVD."

Wallender

WALLENDER: Sidetracked/Firewall/One Step Behind

Release date: June 2, 2009

Product Description
Kenneth Branagh plays Swedish detective Kurt Wallander in three new crime dramas based on the best-selling books by Henning Mankell, an international publishing phenomenon with over 25 million copies sold worldwide. Sidetracked, Firewall, and One Step Behind follow Inspector Kurt Wallander - a disillusioned everyman - as he struggles against a rising tide of violence in the seemingly sleepy backwaters in and around Ystad in beautiful southern Sweden. Baffling crimes and apparently motiveless murders lead to surprising and shocking discoveries in these Swedish noir thrillers.

REVIEW
This is a wonderful BBC series starrring Kenneth Branagh as Kurt Wallender. These three 90-minute episodes are wonderfully written and acted. They present both a good police drama and provide you with a very human police detective not only trying to solve a very baffling case, but dealing with a number of emotional issues at home. Kenneth Branagh is awesome in this role and David Warner is absolutely memorable as his father -- suffering from alzheimer's. Here's a clip to give you a flavor of the show by Kenneth Branagh.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/mpd/permalink/m2LC8C71LPA2A6.
I would recommend this DVD to everyone who enjoys CSI and NCIS. It has that flavor to it, but is more personal than either of the two US shows, giving Branagh more meat to sink his acting teeth into.

This April, BBC Video brings the world’s most popular car entertainment show to DVD for the first time in North America with the 3-disc release Top Gear 10. One of the top rated shows on BBC America and BBC Canada and broadcast in more than 100 countries, Top Gear follows hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May as they attempt some of the most ambitious, and often outrageous, adventures on four wheels including a race through the Kalahari Desert in three 20-year-old clunkers and an attempt to break Sir Richard Branson’s record by crossing the treacherous English Channel in a fleet of amphibious cars. Rounding out the team is the silent and mysterious racing driver The Stig, who pushes cars and celebrities to their limits on the Top Gear test track.

REVIEW
If you enjoy cars and British humor, I've got a show for you. TOP GEAR, is one of those shows where you can easily get caught up in the humor and hijinks of the hosts. Highlights of this DVD are:
- A roadtrip through Europe to find the greatest driving road ever in a Lambogini, Porche 911 and an Aston Martin (so much funnier than it sounds)
- Three attempts at making an amphibious car
- A race between a fighter jet and the fastest production car in the world
- Watch the three hosts cross the uncrossable desert in three african cars that cost $1000.
- See the birth of Motorhome racing

The show is VERY diverse -- crossing generational boundaries as the three hosts wander the world to bring you absolutely stunning adventures.

And yes, this is season 10 of the series. So if you like what you see on this series, you'll want to look for the previous seasons -- just to see what you've missed.

How do you fight an extraterrestrial invasion … when you can’t tell who is friend or foe?

From Raw Feed, creators of the Rest Stop and Otis shockers, comes the sci-fi/horror tale ALIEN RAIDERS, a nerve-shredding battle for human survival against aliens that invade our world by invading our bodies. Be alert. Beware. Be afraid. The creatures’ next host could be your neighbor. Your kid brother. No – it’s you!

Produced by Dan Myrick (co-director of The Blair Witch Project, co-writer of BOOK OF SHADOWS: BLAIR WITCH 2, director of Solstice, The Believers, and The Objective) and directed by Ben Rock (Shadow of the Blair Witch, Conversations), Alien Raiders is WHV’s sixth acquired title from the successful “Raw Feed” film franchise. “Alien Raiders explores the mystery, suspense, fear and tension behind mankind's fight for survival against alien invasion,” said producer Dan Myrick. “It takes the ingredients of horror and suspense from previous Raw Feed installments and adds a science fiction element to increase the anxiety factor.”

Taking the long perspective, Schama looks at four of the critical issues facing our country: war, religion, immigration and the economic and environmental crises we face.

Tom & Jerry Vol. 6 TOM AND JERRY TALES: VOLUME 6
Release date: February 3, 2009

Everyone's favorite cat and mouse duo Tom and Jerry return to DVD in an all-new set of adventures on Tom and Jerry Tales Volume 6, which will be released by Warner Home Video (WHV) February 3, 2009. The sixth volume of the hit Kids' WB TV series will feature 15 action-packed cartoons showcasing Tom and Jerry's latest adventures.

In this volume of Tom and Jerry Tales, Tom and Jerry's unending pursuit takes them around the world from Africa to Australia and on. The duo also learns some valuable lessons about history, including an episode where Tom inadvertently turns the Declaration of Independence into a paper airplane and an episode where Jerry has a role in the Wright Brothers first flight at Kitty Hawk. Tom and Jerry are also involved in a number of musical adventures that are anything but harmonious -- Jerry sabotages Tom's efforts to win a Flamenco dance contest and Tom tries to avert his girlfriend's attention from Jerry by singing the blues. Three very cool episodes on this DVD are entirely devoted to the theme of snow and ice. The duo confronts each other on a frozen pond where Jerry wants to skate but Tom plans to play hockey. Tom and Jerry also engage in an all-out snowball battle and later on, find themselves face-to-face with the giant abominable snowmouse.

"Tom and Jerry is one of the greatest cartoons of all time," commented Amit Desai, WHV Vice President of Family, Animation & Sports Marketing. He added, "The essence of the show has remained unchanged and that's why it's as successful today as it was decades ago. Tom and Jerry Tales maintains the same classic formula that has made this cartoon a success but places the characters in a contemporary setting, which is why the show continues to be a big hit with kids today."

REVIEW
If ever there was a movie made for the BIG screen, it is THE DARK KNIGHT. If you thought you had seen some fantastic visual effects in BATMAN BEGINS, just wait until you see what they do in this movie!!!! It is awesome.

I have loved Batman since I was a kid. The thought of a regular guy fighting crime is very appealing. Unlike Superman, he has no special powers, only his intelligence and wit. That usually is enough to outsmart or outwit his adversaries. The Joker (masterfully played by the late Heath Ledger) is a different kind of criminal. He wants to control everything and everyone.

There are many characters to absolutely love in this series. Gary Oldman is perfect as Lt. Gordon, but I absolutely adore Michael Caine as Alfred and Morgan Freeman as Lucas Fox. They steal every scene they are in.

There is no doubt this saga will continue. As long as there are criminals that need to be brought to justice, there needs to be a Batman somewhere out there to help the police force.

Primeval PRIMEVAL - THE COMPLETE SERIES 1 AND 2
Release Date: November 4, 2008

Synopsis:
When evolutionary zoologist Nick Cutter (Douglas Henshall) discovers prehistoric creatures alive and well in the present-day, the natural world is turned on its head, and humanity faces a threat to its very existence. Unexplained anomalies are ripping holes in the fabric of time, allowing creatures from the very earliest stages of Earth's development to roam the modern world.
Whether it's a prehistoric predator Gorgonopsid rampaging through a quiet suburban neighborhood or a swarm of super-sized spiders in the subway, Cutter and his team find themselves up against some seriously beastly opponents. These puzzling creatures all have the same simple fact in common - they don't belong here.
While Cutter and his team struggle to keep the looming disaster under wraps, Cutter also has to deal the fact that his wife, Helen, a fellow scientist who disappeared eight years ago, is not dead as he believed. In fact, she's been traveling through time. However, now she's back, and she holds the key to the riddle of the anomalies. But is it something she's willing to share? If not, what does she really want? Why did she come back?
Cutter, his research assistant Stephen Hart, zoologist Abby Maitland, and student paleontologist Connor Temple race to understand what's happening, while government bureaucrats James Lester and Claudia Brown insist they have to keep the danger secret from the public. As the past threatens to invade the present and destroy the future, Cutter's crew faces a life-and-death race against time.

Primeval was created by Adrian Hodges (screenwriter of the film Tom & Viv) and Tim Haines (writer/director of Walking with Dinosaurs).

REVIEW
I have caught this show off and on as it airs on BBC America. I like it very much. The characters are interesting - the plot is unusual. I was SO happy to get the DVD because it gave me a chance to see the show from the beginning - which helps provide a little more of the back story - but it isn't necessary to understand why Dr. Cutter and his team are exploring anomalies in space and time. The creatures they encounter are awesome - and you at times wonder, how they did that! The only problem I've had so far is having to listen pretty hard to the English accent! This DVD set is definitely worth watching.

Annie Leibovitz Annie Leibovitz: Life Through a Lens
Release date: October 28, 2008
Official website: www.warnervideo.com

Synopsis:
Take a peek into the illustrious career of one of today?s most prolific photographers -- Annie Leibovitz. Annie Leibovitz: Life Through a Lens, traces the arc of her photographic life, her aspirations to artistry and the trajectory of her career which has produced some of today's most recognizable and iconic photos. The film directed by her sister, Barbara Leibovitz, depicts the various phases that shaped her life including childhood, the tumultuous sixties, her transition from Rolling Stone to Vanity Fair magazine and later her most significant personal relationships including motherhood. The film's highlights center on interviews with her most famous subjects, mentors and colleagues -- along with personal insight from Leibovitz herself -- to reveal the evolution of inarguably one of today's most influential visual artists. The film was broadcasted as part of PBS's award-winning series, American Masters, as the finale for its 20th Anniversary season (2006) and is now available for the first time on DVD.


REVIEW
For those of you who love photography -- or just looking at good pictures -- you are going to LOVE this DVD. Annie Leibovitz is just amazing. This portrait of her work shows just how terrific she is and what a life she has led looking through the lens of a camera. Seeing photographs of John Lennon and Yoko Ono just before he was killed is just amazing. Being able to follow her career and her growth as a photographer and person is just as amazing.

Written by: Chris Chibnall

With fearsome new aliens, compelling new storylines, and amazing guest stars the second season of Torchwood takes the close-knit team through dare-devil action, temptation, heartache, and a life changing event for one of them.


REVIEW
I liked Season Two much better than Season One. The episodes were more tightly written and easier to follow. In Season One, we were introduced to the characters and the villans and places. In Season Two, now that we know the characters, each episode could explore the characters more and their interactions with each other. If you are a fan of DOCTOR WHO, this spin-off series is sure to delight you. In addition, Freema Agyeman reprises her role of Martha Jones in a 3-story arc. She was terrific in DOCTOR WHO -- she's wonderful in TORCHWOOD.

REVIEW
PUSHING DAISIES is an unusual romantic comedy that was shortened to only nine episodes in the first season because of the writer's strike. Everyone who enjoys the show hopes season two will bring the regular 22 episodes for everyone to enjoy.

The show has perfect casting, directing, production and writing. PUSHING DAISIES is fresh, original, heart breaking and funny.

Smallville S7 Smallville Season 7
Release date: September 9, 2008
Official website:
http://www.smallvilledvd.com

Synopsis:
When Clark's cousin Kara (Supergirl) arrives on the scene, Clark advises her to keep a low profile and master her powers, but Kara has other ideas and becomes the focus of Lex Luthor's powerlust. Does Lana Lang prefer Bizarro to the real deal? Lois Lane makes a career leap and Chloe Sullivan finds that balancing a meteor power with a personal life isn't easy. New characters and complications abound, along with new secrets and lore, new thrills and special effects. Power up to Season 7!


REVIEW
With two less episodes due to the writer's strike, this season seemed less focused than the others. Not to say it was not good, but the writers seemed to be coming up with new story lines and ways to have some of the principal actors exist at the end of the season. Michael Rosenbaum has consistently been fantastic as Lex Luthor. He will be sorely missed in season eight, but the void will be filled by new characters. Tom Welling as Clark Kent has grown considerably as an actor. Having come to the role as a model, he has shown glimpses of real acting talent and I hope he continues to stretch himself during the coming season.
This season brought back James Marsters as Brainiac and he's as good as ever. He has made the character his own and the episodes featuring him are favorites.
If you had to pick some favorite episodes from season 7, there are many. "Descent" may be the best as Lex and his father, Lionel, face off with tragic results. The final scene with Lex and Clark standing by Lionel's coffin is a powerful moment not to be missed by any SMALLVILLE fan.

The New World The New World - Extended Cut
Release Date: October 14, 2008

Synopsis:
Powhatan tribal people stare in wonder as three ships approach shore. It's a story every schoolchild knows; the story of Capt. John Smith (Colin Farrell), Pocahontas (Q'orianka Kilcher). Now, as told by filmmaker Terrence Malick (Badlands, Days of Heaven, The Thin Red Line) in this Extended Version with more than 30 minutes of footage unseen in theaters -- it's a story you never imagined. Working in part from first-hand histories and adding his extraordinary sense of image and human drama, Malick crafts a visceral, spellbinding tale of the Jamestown settlement, of cultures connecting and of deadly consequences when connections fray. Christian Bale and Christopher Plummer also star.

REVIEW:

As we sit in awe of the tremendous atheltic competitions being met during the Olympics, this video puts China into yet another category -- one of old traditions, vast wilderness, many near extinct species and absolutely awesome landscapes. Segments that show how rice crops can be grown and harvested -- along with the fish that inhabit the paddies is a wonderful example of man co-habitating with the world around him. The conservation efforts of the Chinese people are little known but should be applauded. This is a story of a remarkable people and land.

As with other BBC series, this is wonderfully done with a magnificant narration by Bernard Hill (King Theoden of THE LORD OF THE RINGS).

REVIEW
I hadn't watched this series when it first came on the tube. I was never a fan of the original movies, but when I began watching TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES, I got hooked. It is an interesting and exciting drama that reminds me a lot of some very old TV series -- like THE IMMORTAL. In this case however, the baddies are almost invincible robots.

Lena Headey is wonderful as Sarah Connor and Summer Glau is terrific as their protector. If you have an afternoon when it's raining and not much on TV (and that happen more and more lately), pick up this series and give it a try. Season Two begins shortly and you'll be able to catch up very quickly.

Witchblade WITCHBLADE: THE COMPLETE SERIES

Release date: July 29, 2008
Official Website: www.witchbladedvd.com

Witchblade: The Complete Series
Synopsis:
In this adaptation of the Top Cow comic book, Witchblade is the story of a New York detective, Sara "Pez" Pezzini, whose search for justice brings her into contact with the Witchblade, an ancient, intelligent, living weapon so powerful it can battle Earth's darkest evil forces. Week in and week out, "Pez" employs her skills as a police detective to fight crime. She finds she must employ the Witchblade to combat a much greater and frighteningly organized conspiracy of evil that threatens the very soul of humanity. As Sara tries to keep the secret of the Witchblade, do her job and have a personal life, she finds that her most formidable adversary may be the Witchblade itself.


REVIEW:
I remember this series when it was on TNT and thought it was absolutely awesome. The special effects for a TV drama were just astounding. Yancy Butler was unbelievable as Sarah Pezzini - in the title role. She was perfect to play this very conflicted person who saw so much injustice around her and was trying to make a difference not only be being a policeman -- but by being a good policeman.

This was one of the most under-rated TV series of its day. The cast was wonderful and you couldn't wait for the next week to see what would happen next as Sarah learned more about the Witchblade and why she was chosen to wear it.

Batman Begins

BATMAN BEGINS

Release Date: July 8, 2008

Batman Begins: Limited Edition Gift Set
Synopsis:
Batman Begins explores the origins of the Batman legend and the Dark Knight's emergence as a force for good in Gotham. In the wake of his parents' murder, disillusioned industrial heir Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale)travels the world seeking the means to fight injustice and turn fear against those who prey on the fearful. He returns to Gotham and unveils his alter-ego: Batman, a masked crusader who uses his strength, intellect and an array of high tech deceptions to fight the sinister forces that threaten the city.

Director: Christopher Nolan
Actors: Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes, Gary Oldman, Cillian Murphy, Tom Wilkinson, Rutger Hauer, Ken Watanabe, Morgan Freeman, Mark Boone, Jr., Gus Lewis, Linus Roache, Rade Serbedzija

Blu-ray™ Hi-Def Limited Edition Gift Set extras include The Dark Knight Prologue, a 32-Page Booklet featuring an exclusive comic adaptation of The Dark Knight Prologue, a BATMAN BEGINS Motion Art Lenticular, 5 Collectible Batman Begins Postcards and $7.50 "Movie Cash" to see The Dark Knight in theaters.

REVIEW

To me, this is the BEST BATMAN movie to date. While I loved Michael Keaton as BATMAN, Christian Bale gives a more somber look to the caped crusader. Michael Caine is just wonderful as Alfred as are Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman.
While the story of BATMAN has been shown in many ways, Christopher Nolan does a wonderful job of adding tone and emotion through lighting and shadows. Liam Neeson as Bruce Wayne's early mentor is awesome and the final climax -- just the right touch of myth and wonder. You leave the theater (or in this case your living room) with anticipation about the next adventure in this saga. While you have seen BATMAN before, it hasn't been THIS BATMAN.

Let's not miss the toys! How about the Batmobile!!!! Can't you see that tooling down the highway??? I wonder how many miles to a gallon it gets???

Timing for this DVD release was brilliant. For those who did not catch this film when it first came out, there was time to catch up before going to THE DARK KNIGHT (released on July 18). For those who went to see THE DARK KNIGHT, this DVD was on the shelve waiting to give the back story and bring you up to date. I can't wait to see what is in the future for this one.

The Closer-Third THE CLOSER: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON
Release Date: July 1, 2008
Official website: www.thecloserdvd.com

The Closer: The Complete Third Season
Synopsis:
Golden Globe Award-winner and Emmy Award nominee, Kyra Sedgwick portrays the role of Deputy Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson, a CIA-trained detective who has been brought from Atlanta to Los Angeles to head up the Priority Murder Squad, a special unit of the LAPD that handles sensitive, high-profile murder cases. Despite her offbeat personality and tendency to step on people's toes, Brenda's tough-as-nails approach and track record prove her to be one of the country's leading investigators. Brenda is tapped to lead the team because she is a world-class interrogator, and when it comes to obtaining confessions, she is a closer. But her quirky attitude and hard-nosed approach to her job sometimes rub her colleagues the wrong way, as does the fact that she is a tough-minded Southern woman in a department dominated by men.

During season three, Brenda faces several challenges both personal and professional, as she is assigned to some very complex cases. She investigates a retirement facility where a man confesses to seven murders but refuses to give his name. She is put on a case that involves the slaughter of an entire family in an upscale Los Angeles neighborhood and has to deal with becoming the most downloaded video on YouTube after she's assaulted by a bride whose wedding she stopped. Half-way through the season, Brenda begins to feel ill until test results from the doctor reveal what's going on. The series also stars J.K. Simmons (Juno), Corey Reynolds (The Guardian), Robert Gossett (Passions), G.W. Bailey (The Jeff Foxworthy Show), Tony Denison (Prison Break) and Jon Tenney (The Division).

Arresting Bonus Features on the DVD set include:
- The Art of Interrogation - A featurette that depicts law enforcement professionals and criminal psychologists explaining the real-world art of interrogation and the skills necessary to be a "closer." The show's producers, writers and creators discuss the techniques used on the show and the advantages of using a female Deputy Police Chief as the show's main character.
- Gag Reel

REVIEW:
This show is addictive! You start watching it and begin to get into the personalities of all the characters. Kyra Sedgwick is wonderful in the role of Deputy Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson. She downplays her role marvelously -- often leaving you with the same feeling as the other folks in the room -- how did she do that?.

This is a brilliantly produced series, with rich characters and marvelous acting. The stories are diverse and cover a lot of very deep subjects. The plot lines are clever and fresh. If you enjoy police dramas, THE CLOSER is for you.

This is one of those programs that should be more visible at Emmy time!

Warner Bros. is pushing the limits on this one. The graphics and music are wonderful. The Batman story is one I have enjoyed for years -- along with others in my family. I can't wait to see this video. Go to Gotham-Knight for more information.

REVIEW
This was an amazing DVD. If you are a fan of BATMAN, you will enjoy this DVD. For me, I nearly forgot that it was an animated adventure. The story lines were rich in plot and the voice actors were wonderful. Kevin Conroy has always been a terrific BATMAN -- with a deep, resonant voice that seems to fit the images you see very well.

This collection of tales takes place between "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight" which starts with "Have I Got a Story for You" in which some urban gothamn kids tell their own version of how they saw Batman, "Crossfire" deals with the caped crusader saving the lives of a couple of detectives dropping off a patient to Arkaham Island where he fights off a Russian mob. "Field Test" has Lucius Fox and Bruce Wayne working on the latest invention for Batman as he fights against a gang of criminals on a boat near Gotham Harbor, "In Darkness Dwells" has our hero pitting himself against Killer Croc and The Scarecrows in the sewers. "Working Through Pain" has Batman wounded as he remembers his past in Asia where he is trained on how to live with pain from a East Indian woman and finally "Deadshot" has a top assassin who is willing to kill for a prophet until the Dark Knight stops him.

I would encourage parents to watch this DVD first -- before showing it to your smaller children. There is a degree of violence as BATMAN fights against the bad guys and you may not want to introduce this to your children. For older children, they will recognize the characters and understand more of what is going on -- and you as parents can talk to them about how right can triumph over evil but it isn't always easy. here's pretty strong language at first and the violence is a huge step up from Batman - The Animated Series. GOTHAM KNIGHT is quite different from this animated series, so don't expect the playful like humor seen in BTAS seasons 1-3. This version of Batman is something to take serious.

They compose a bucket list - things to do before you kick the bucket - and head off for the around-the-world adventure of their lives. Sky dive? Check. Power a Shelby Mustang around a racetrack? Check. Gaze at the Great Pyramid of Khufu? Check. Discover the joy in their lives before it's too late? Check!

Under the nimble direction of Rob Reiner, the two great stars provide the heart and soul, wit and wiles of this inspired salute to life that proves that the best time of all is right now.

Director: Rob Reiner
Actors: Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman, Sean P. Hayes, Rob Morrow

BRIEF REVIEW: I LOVED THIS MOVIE!
There aren't many movies about impending death that you can say are funny, full of wit and uplifting. I am a big fan of Morgan Freeman. This actor has limitless range and he proves again that he can take any role and make you care about the character. He and Jack Nickolson are marvelous together -- playing off each other, making you laugh and cry. You hear the phrase often, "Life's too short." What would you do if you had only a short time to live.

Waterhorse THE WATERHORSE
Release date: April 8, 2008
Actors: Bruce Allpress, Eddie Campbell, Ben Chaplin, Peter Corrigan (II), Brian Cox
Director: Jay Russell

I love movies like this -- something you can watch with your kids -- or just enjoy on your own. WATERHORSE is beautifully filmed, capturing the beauty of Scotland.
The movie tells the legend of the water horse that lives for one generation and when he is ready to die, lays an egg from which a new water horse is hatched to grow up on its own. Angus McMurrow is a troubled young lad, his father has gone off to war and he and his mother and sister are left to manage their farm. Their world is invaded by British soldiers coming to protect England from the Germans, presenting new challenges for young Angus. He finds the water horse egg and when it hatches, he helps the creature grow by feeding it scraps and keeping it in the bath tub. This story may bring back memories of ET for some.

Sharkwater SHARKWATER
Release date: April 8, 2008
Official site: http://www.sharkwater.com/

Synopsis:
For filmmaker Rob Stewart, exploring sharks began as an underwater adventure. What it turned into was a beautiful and dangerous life journey into the balance of life on earth.

Driven by passion fed from a lifelong fascination with sharks, Stewart debunks historical stereotypes and media depictions of sharks as bloodthirsty, man-eating monsters and reveals the reality of sharks as pillars in the evolution of the seas.

Filmed in visually stunning, high definition video, Sharkwater takes you into the most shark rich waters of the world, exposing the exploitation and corruption surrounding the world's shark populations in the marine reserves of Cocos Island, Costa Rica and the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador. Stewart's remarkable journey of courage and determination changes from a mission to save the world's sharks, into a fight for his life, and that of humankind.

WARNER GANGSTERS COLLECTION - VOLUME 3

Gangster DVD WB Banner Warner Gangsters Collection Volume 3
Release Date: March 25, 2008
Official site: www.gangstersdvd.com

Synopsis:
PICTURE SNATCHER (1933): An admirably tough B-picture enlivened by an energetic James Cagney performance, Picture Snatcher stars Cagney as Danny Kean, a former gangster who has decided to go straight after a stretch in the big house. Danny has fallen for Patricia (Patricia Ellis), the daughter of the cop who put him away (Robert Emmett O'Connor). Dad isn't convinced that Danny has left his life of crime behind him, and he isn't too impressed with his new career taking pictures for a sleazy tabloid newspaper. Between getting a lurid photo of a fireman in front of a burning building (where his wife and her lover met their fate) and a daring shot of a woman being executed (based an actual incident when a New York Daily News photographer got a photo of Ruth Snyder in the electric chair), Danny's work is selling papers but hardly making Officer O'Connor think his daughter is in good hands (especially since he was in charge of press security for the execution). Short, sweet and sassy, Picture Snatcher is the sort of gutsy fare Warner Bros. did best in the 1930's; Ralph Bellamy turns in a great supporting performance as Danny's boozy editor LADY KILLER (1933): Based on the novel by Carson McCullers, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter stars Alan Arkin as John Singer, who is deaf. Singer moves from a small town in order to be close to his institutionalized deaf and mentally impaired friend Antonapoulos (Chuck McCann). Singer rents a room with a family whose father, Mr. Kelly (Biff McGuire), is unable to earn a living due to a serious injury. His teen-aged daughter Mick (Sondra Locke, in her film debut) is at first resentful of Singer's presence, but he ingratiates himself by introducing her to classical music (which he can "feel," if not hear). Singer likewise tries to brighten the lives of such unfortunates as alcoholic Blount (Stacy Keach Jr., also making his first film appearance), dying black doctor Copeland (Percy Rodriguez), and Copeland's poverty-stricken daughter (Cicely Tyson).
SMART MONEY (1931):Edward G. Robinson and James Cagney were teamed for the only time in their careers in Smart Money. Robinson has the larger part as a small-town barber who fancies himself a big-time gambler. He travels to the Big City in the company of his younger brother Cagney, who wants to make sure that Robinson isn't fleeced by the high-rollers. Unfortunately Robinson has a weakness for beautiful blondes, most of whom take him for all his money or betray him in some other manner. The cops aren't keen on Robinson's gambling activities, but they can pin nothing on him until he accidentally kills Cagney in a fight. The incident results in a jail term for manslaughter, and a more sober-sided outlook on life for the formerly flamboyant Robinson. Watch closely in the first reel of Smart Money for an unbilled appearance by Boris Karloffas a dope pusher.
BLACK LEGION (1937): Factory worker Frank Taylor believes that he has missed out on a deserved promotion when it is instead given to a Polish immigrant. Angry and looking for a scapegoat, he is an ideal mark for the Black Legion, an underground group who want to get rid of immigrants and racial minorities through violent means. Frank joins the Legion, and with his new friends, he dons black robes and drives the Polish family from their home. His aim achieved, Frank gets his job, but soon the Legion begins to take up more of his time and money, and turns his character darker and darker. He leaves his wife, begins to drink heavily, and soon is on a downward spiral.
MAYOR OF HELL (1933): Five members of a teen-age gang, including leader Jimmy Smith, are sent to the State Reformatory, presided over by the melodramatically callous Thompson. Soon, Patsy Gargan, a former gangster appointed Deputy Commissioner as a political favor, arrives complete with hip flask and blonde. Gargan falls for activist nurse Dorothy and, inspired by her, takes over the administration to run the place on radical principles.

Lucy schemes to find all the eggs in the annual Easter Egg Hunt by planting all the eggs and recording their positions; Peppermint Patty and Marcie try to make Easter eggs, but Marcie instead fries, roasts, toasts, waffles, and finally makes soup from them. Fortunately for everybody (except Charlie Brown and Lucy), the Easter Beagle (played by Snoopy) arrives and hands out eggs (the ones Lucy planted for the egg hunt) to everyone. He runs out of eggs, so he gives Charlie Brown the basket. Includes 1 bonus episode: It's Arbor Day, Charlie Brown.

MY REVIEW
It's Easter and here is a wonderful movie to watch with your kids. All of us have had Charlie Brown in our past -- whether through the movies or the comics in the newspaper. Charlies Brown's Christmas tree is still one of my favorites and adding this movie to my collection will give the kids (and grown ups) in my family a new classic to watch each year.

The extras on the disk include IT'S ARBOR DAY, CHARLIE BROWN. It gives you some background on the holiday and you may just learn a little something you didn't know about it. Baseball fans may enjoy this one more than the Easter Beagle!

The Equalizer THE EQUALIZER
Release date: February 12, 2008

I see that one of my favorite TV series from the 80's is now on DVD. THE EQUALIZER- First Season is available on DVD. If you remember, Babylon 5's pilot music was composed by Stewart Copeland, founder and drummer of The Police. Copeland started with the very distinctive theme song for The Equalizer.
Edward Woodward is perfect as retired Cold War operative Robert McCall. The regular cast included Robert Lansing as "Control," Keith Szarabajka as Mickey Kostmayer, Mark Margolis as Jimmy, William Zabka as son Scott McCall, and Richard Jordan as Harley Gage.

If you like old TV series, you'll be happy to see HAWAII FIVE-O, THE FUGITIVE, THE ROCKFORD FILES, THE WILD WILD WEST, MAGNUM P.I. and THE UNTOUCHABLES are now on DVD.

The firm's top litigator in a $3-billion case has gone from advocate to whistleblower. And the more Michael tries to undo the damage, the more he's up against forces that put corporate survival over human life 'including Michael's.

Director: Tony Gilroy Actors: George Clooney, Tom Wilkinson, Tilda Swinton, Sydney Pollack Critic's Quotes: "Clooney is at the top of his form." Peter Travers, Rolling Stone "Gripping."

The Invaders THE INVADERS
Release date: May 6, 2008

As I was wondering about looking for news this morning, I spotted a link for the upcoming release of the first season of THE INVADERS. It can be pre-ordered from Amazon.com so that it will arrive near the release date. It was the perfect mix of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" and "The Fugitive". Created by the brilliant Quinn Martin, who produced other outstanding series like The Untouchables and the Streets of San Francisco, there are few that rival THE INVADERS for their imagination and production values. Though this series premiered in 1967, it still ranks as #6 on thee TV Guide List of Twenty-Five Greatest Sci-Fi Legends. Roy Thinnes is marvelous as architect David Vincent. As the opening narrative states: "Now, David Vincent knows that the Invaders are here; that they have taken human form. Somehow, he must convince a disbelieving world, that the nightmare has already begun..."

With the weak attempts being made at science fiction these days, it might be good for folks to look at some of the old favorites, like THE INVADERS, to see that good TV series are possible.

REVIEW:
If you enjoy dance and true artistry, you will love this DVD. The music is awesome, but the dance is amazing. The precision dance performed by the Riverdance company is just astoundingly beautiful. One can only think of how many hours of practice it has taken to bring this marvel of dance to theaters -- and now to DVD for everyone to enjoy. Jean Butler and Colin Dunne ar the principal dancers with Maria Pages, Katie McMahon and Morgan Crowley also starring in this feature. I am at a loss for words to adequately describe the marvel of Riverdance.

When Umbridge refuses to teach practical defensive magic, Ron and Hermione convince Harry to secretly train a select group of students for the wizarding war that lies ahead. A terrifying showdown between good and evil awaits in this enthralling film version of the fifth novel in J.K. Rowling’s series. Prepare for battle!.

In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry returns for his fifth year of study at Hogwarts only to discover that much of the wizarding community has been led to believe that the story of the teenager’s recent encounter with the evil Lord Voldemort is a lie, putting Harry’s integrity in question. Worse, the Minister for Magic, Cornelius Fudge, has appointed a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, the duplicitous Professor Dolores Umbridge. But Professor Umbridge’s “Ministry- approved” course of defensive magic leaves the young wizards woefully unprepared to defend themselves against the Dark Forces threatening them, so at the prompting of his friends Hermione and Ron, Harry is convinced to take matters into his own hands. Meeting secretly with a small group of students who name themselves “Dumbledore’s Army,” Harry teaches them how to defend themselves against the Dark Arts, preparing the courageous young wizards for the extraordinary battle that lies ahead.

HAPPY FEET
Release Date: March 27, 2007

Synopsis: In the great nation of Emperor Penguins, deep in Antarctica, you're nobody unless you can sing - which is unfortunate for Mumble (ELIJAH WOOD), who is the worst singer in the world. He is born dancing to his own tune...tap dancing. As fate would have it, his one friend, Gloria (BRITTANY MURPHY), happens to be the best singer around. Mumble and Gloria have a connection from the moment they hatch, but she struggles with his strange "hippity- hoppity" ways. Away from home for the first time, Mumble meets a posse of decidedly un-Emperor-like penguins - the Adelie Amigos. Led by Ramon (ROBIN WILLIAMS), the Adelies instantly embrace Mumble's cool dance moves and invite him to party with them. In Adelie Land, Mumble seeks the counsel of Lovelace the Guru (also voiced by ROBIN WILLIAMS), a crazy-feathered Rockhopper penguin who will answer any of life's questions for the price of a pebble. Together with Lovelace and the Amigos, Mumble sets out across vast landscapes and, after some epic encounters, proves that by being true to yourself, you can make all the difference in the world. Director: George Miller Actors: Hugh Jackman, Brittany Murphy, Elijah Wood, Hugo Weaving, Magda Szubanski, Nicole Kidman, Robin Williams, Anthony Lapaglia, Steve Irwin Critic's Quotes: There is no mistaking "Happy Feet" as anything but the work of a real filmmaker; in terms of composition, camera movement and editing, the pic is conceived as a "real" movie, and emerges as one of the very best directed animated films on record. - VARIETY


Casino Royale CASINO ROYALE, starring Daniel Craig as James Bond is available today on DVD. The bonus features generally celebrate Bond as an iconic figure with only one extra, "James Bond: For Real," geared towards behind-the-scenes action on the film itself. It examines the use of parkour (with co-founder Sebastien Foucan), the down and dirty fight scenes, various explosions and the record-setting seven times that Bond's car rolls before it's totaled. In contrast, "Becoming Bond" is almost a solemn affair that demonstrates just how serious casting a new Bond could be. The featurette follows the entire process: from the numerous actors being considered and the big announcement to the subsequent media frenzy and criticism. Apparently, having a blond Bond that was a relative nobody rubbed people the wrong way. The remainder of the featurette also analyzed how this new (old) Bond revitalized what had become formulaic, such as his romantic approach and his relationship with M.

SUPERMAN - SEASON FIVE AND SIX

Superman Season 5-6 Completing the collection of "The Adventures of Superman", the series' final two seasons offers something for everyone -- the laughably bad episodes (offering up green-haired, midget Martians, a mind-reading mule, and Professor Pepperwinkle's latest goofy inventions), to the surprisingly good ones (tales of the search for a Civil War-era coat, a missing circus elephant, and a barber who reforms his childhood friend, now a gangster, are all very sweet, and quite enjoyable), and one of the last episodes filmed, "The Perils of Superman", directed by George Reeves, himself, is a bonafide 'classic', with unsettling images of helmeted criminals walking the streets of Metropolis, and Clark, Lois, Jimmy, and Perry, each subjected to silent movie cliffhanger demises. Best of all, these last episodes prove that Reeves, though far heavier and grayer by the series' end, never lost the sincerity or humor he had displayed in earlier seasons. Also included in the collection is a made-for-dvd celebration of Jack Larson, offering recent interviews with everyone's favorite 'Jimmy Olsen', Noel Neill, and a variety of the series' historians. The final two seasons of the Adventures of Superman are timeless fun for all who admired the talents of George Reeves and the rest of the cast. Thanks to these DVDs, everyone will be able to look back at his portrayal of Superman that captured the imagination of millions.



TALES FROM THE CRYPT - FIFTH SEASON
Tales from the Crypt HBO's TALES FROM THE CRYPT has established itself as one of the greatest horror/thriller anthology of it's era. The 13 tales featured in this season don't have the big name horror directors of seasons past, but there are a lot of very recognizable names featured in the episodes. Ed Begley Jr. plays a con man who gets way, way more than he bargained for in "Death of Some Salesman"; which also features the great Tim Curry in multiple roles and was directed by Gilbert Adler who would go on to do the much maligned Bordello of Blood. "Forever Ambergris" features The Who's Roger Daltrey and Steve Buscemi as rival war photographers, who naturally get a taste of war and hell unlike either could ever imagine. "House of Horror" features Kevin Dillon as a frat leader breaking in new pledges (including Will Wheaton), Ernie Hudson stars as a gluttonous, evil man in "Food For Thought", "Creep Course" features Jeffrey Jones as a history teacher with a diabolical scam who gets the tables turned on him, and "Half-Way Horrible" is a season favorite featuring Clancy Brown as an unscrupolous businessman that finds his way into voodoo. This fifth season edition has plenty of blood, guts, laughs, and thrills. Don't forget to visit http://www.warnervideo.com/talesfromthecryptdvd/ for more information and excerpts from the DVD.

BABYLON 5 DVDS

B5 Legend of the Rangers BABYLON 5: LEGEND OF THE RANGERS
Looks like the LEGEND OF THE RANGERS DVD will be released on March 14, 2006. Go to http://tvshowsondvd.com/newsitem.cfm?NewsID=4523 for more information.

Synopsis:
It's the year 2264. The peace of the universe is maintained by the Interstellar Alliance who employ a military force to combat any hostile intent. The military force consists of human and alien members.

DVD Description

The Shadow War has ended, leaving hundreds of civilisations devastated by the conflict. It is up to the ISA, with the help of the Rangers, to rebuild what the great war destroyed and to maintain peace among the worlds of the ISA. The Legend of the Rangers pilot movie deals with the Ranger crew of the Liandra, a semi-organic ship based on Minbari technology. The Rangers encounter a previously unknown alien race, called the Hand, whose lethal power is far greater than any force previously known to Earth or any other world in the Interstellar Alliance. The Legend Of The Rangers is a movie spin off from the hugely popular Babylon 5 series.

While it is sad that there are no extras with this DVD of the last BABYLON 5 project, it is still a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours -- watching a somewhat familiar BABYLON 5 -- seeing Andreas as G'Kar again.

Lois & Clark Third Season Superman Season Third Superman Season Three/Four Justice League Season Two











Warner Home Video has announced five Superman-related DVD collections for release on June 20, just prior to the theatrical debut of SUPERMAN RETURNS. Following is a rundown:
* Lois & Clark: The Complete Third Season is a six-disc set that will cost $59.98.
* Superman: The Animated Series Vol. 3 is a two-disc set that will cost $26.90.
* The Adventures of Superboy: The Complete First Season is a four-disc set that will cost $39.98.
* The Adventures of Superman: The Complete Third and Fourth Seasons will be a five-disc set that will cost $39.98.
* Justice League: Season 2 will be a four-disc set that will cost $44.98.

I am a fan of this entire series. Dean Cain and Terry Hatcher are great as Clark and Lois in this iteration of the old classic. The animated series is wonderful. I just finished watching Volume 2 and I enjoyed it very much. The stories are very good and great for children to watch -- with their parents. There is some violence as Superman tries to thwart the baddies, but he does prevail. The same holds true of the ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN. I loved this show as a kid and can't wait to see the Third and Fourth Season. Season Two was wonderful and brought back some great memories. (I actually met George Reeves at Kennywood Park in Pittsburgh a lot of years ago. It was a time when I had a lot of heroes -- Roy Rogers, The Lone Ranger and Superman. Can't get much better than that!)
The Justice League series has been superb. The writing is good and the animation is very good. They have taken the Saturday-moring cartoon a lot further and given us grown-ups something to watch as well.


Superman Season Two THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON

The Adventures of Superman, the Complete Second Season
(Warner Home Video, $39.99)

Before actors Dean Cain and Tom Welling assumed the television role of the Man of Steel, George Reeves delighted 1950s viewers with his interpretation of DC Comics' unstoppable superhero. The 1953 second season of the series arrives on DVD in a five-disc set and delivers all 26 black-and-white episodes, which will make younger viewers scratch their heads at the lame effects and corny plots but allow older fans to take a nostalgia trip into wholesome family entertainment.

The season marked the return of actress Noel Neill as Lois Lane (having previously played her in the 1948 serial and a 1950 film) and plots including Superman battling kryptonite and Earth-destroying meteors and helping a little girl regain her sight. Slick menus mixing comic book page panels and footage from the show lead not only to the individual episodes but extras such as a segment on Noel Neill as Lois, a 12-minute Superman show from 1954 used to promote the U.S. Treasury Department's Saving Stamp program and optional commentary tracks on two episodes by Noel Neill and Jack Larson (Jimmy Olsen).

I had a chance to review this DVD set. Check out the review of this and other DVDs from Warner Bros. at DVD Reviews. If you have watched some new DVDs and want to submit a review, please do send it along to share with other readers.

Still on the run from his ex-captors, Jarod continues to help innocent victims even as he digs deeper into his own background and the secret inner workings of the Centre. At the same time, he also uncovers disturbing facts about Miss Parker’s family, which cause her to question her own life’s work. But in the end it is Jarod’s long-lost father who suddenly reappears with news of the Centre’s latest project - a shocking cloning experiment that has father and son teaming up in a desperate effort to shut down the research facility once and for all.

Serenity

SERENITY

After 38 days in release, SERENITY has grossed just over $25 million domestically and it'll make its transition onto DVD on December 20, a theater-to-home window of well under three months, an extra fast turnaround. Now you know what to get as a stocking stuffer for that Browncoat in your life.

The film reunites the stars of "Firefly" -- including Nate Fillion, Gina Torres, Adam Baldwin, Sean Maher and Alan Tudyk -- in another adventure that combines outer space fantasy with Western action. Although writer-director Whedon was able to complete his first feature with a relatively modest budget (somewhere in the $40 million range), the box office for "Serenity" fell short of what most observers thought would be required to greenlight a theatrical sequel.

The DVD contains deleted scenes, outtakes, a special introduction and commentary from Whedon and several other documentaries and features.

From the producers of Miami Vice and ER comes the thrilling story of Devon Adair (Debrah Farentino), who is struggling to find a healthy environment for her deathly ill son, Ulysses. Disregarding government orders, she puts together an expedition to found a new civilization on an Earth-like planet 22 light years in the future. But after their ship crash-lands on the wrong side of planet G889, the "colonists" quickly discover that their new home already has some very strange and hostile inhabitants. Catch DVD-exclusive bonus features and join stellar guest stars including Tim Curry, Virginia Madsen, Terry O'Quinn and more on all 21 groundbreaking episodes of the Emmy-winning series that critics cheered "soars to new sci-fi heights."


Space: Above and Beyond Ranger Dave writes that the SciFi series SPACE: ABOVE AND BEYOND is due for release on October 4th. Bestbuy.com is taking preorders for it. Amazon.com, however doesn't list it yet.
The television series "Space: Above and Beyond", created and produced by Glen Morgan and James Wong, chronicled the interplanetary adventures of a Marine squadron battling hostile aliens in the years 2063-2064. Part (anti-)war drama, part science fiction, it examined such themes as courage, loyalty and faith. Through the eyes of the Wild Cards, it explored what we, as humans, live for... and what we would be willing to die for.
"Space" aired on Fox-TV in 1995 and 1996, but - despite critical praise, decent ratings, viewer support, and four Emmy Award nominations - was cancelled.

A two-level playable demo of Star Wars Battlefront II is also included on the DVD.
"'Revenge of the Sith' gave audiences an extraordinary experience, and we want this DVD to do the same," said Jim Ward, Vice President of Marketing and Distribution for Lucasfilm Ltd. "From the beginning of production, George wanted to be sure we chronicled everything that went into the making of 'Episode III' specifically to create an incredible DVD experience.

Originally aired in the 90's on ABC, this humorously romantic action/adventure hour-long series puts a modern twist on the time-honored, legendary superhero, bringing to life the comic book characters Clark Kent; his superhuman alter-ego, Superman; and Lois Lane, fiction's first lady of the press, in the most unrequited romance of all time."


HARVEY BIRDMAN - ATTORNEY AT LAW

Harvey Birdman From TV Tome:
Once, he was known as the aviary superhero called simply Birdman (during the 1967 Hanna-Barbera series, Birdman & The Galaxy Trio. Along with his specially trained pet eagle, Avenger, he fought crime as many others before him, and many others following him, did. Eventually, Birdman fell on hard times, and the hero route went by the wayside. He soon shot a pilot for a talk show (which eventually became Space Ghost Coast To Coast) but it too failed to go anywhere for him as he was (obviously) replaced by Space Ghost.

Finally, at some point, Harvey Birdman was inspired to become a lawyer. Now, as an attorney, he represents his fellow former Hanna-Barbera cartoon stars, in a variety of strange cases. With opposing council made up of his former villains, the Judge a prehistoric superhero named Mightor (of the 1967 series Mighty Mightor) and his pet/partner Avenger working as his personal secretary, Harvey tackles the cases only a guy in a business suit with a mask & large wings can!

SPACE GHOST COAST TO COAST - SEASON THREE

Space Ghost Welcome to the Space Ghost Coast to Coast
Space Ghost started out as a scientist, but later was recruited into a member of the intergalactic police. His abilities come from his suit that allows him to fly, and the power bands on his wrists can get him out of almost any situation.

Now, he's a talk show host for Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block. Much like what they have done for the recent Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law, Space Ghost was an old Hanna-Barbera superhero show, called Space Ghost and Dino Boy.

WONDER WOMAN

Wonder Woman Season 2 What's Wonder Woman up to now you ask? Flash forward 35 years from her stirring Season-One adventures defending America in World War II.

Season Two (21 episodes following a feature-length season premiere) introduces Wonder Woman to a new America of nuclear power and computers. Teamed with Steve Trevor, son of the dashing major she worked with during World War II, she takes the name Diana Prince - and takes on all kinds of danger from terrorists, mad geniuses, crooks and even a diabolical rock star while working for America's Inter-Agency Defense Command. Wonder Woman, we're proud you're on our side!
