'Mad Men' and New TV Shows on DVD, Streaming Online for March 29, 2011

by Mike Moody, posted Mar 29th 2011 1:20PM
Mad Men season 4 blu-rayDon Draper took a bold stab at building a new life during 'Mad Men' season 4, available today on DVD and Blu-ray. Season 4 followed Don, Peggy, Roger and the rest of the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce clan as they experienced small successes, bitter failures and, of course, tragedies in their relationships and business ventures.

Season 4 almost felt like a fresh start for the Emmy-winning series, as Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce began to take off, and Don, now divorced from Betty, stumbled in his new role as a single father and authority figure. One of the great joys of season 4 was watching Don and Peggy work together more than ever and seeing their relationship evolve from the boss/secretary dynamic to a more rewarding teacher/student scenario.

Roger and Joan's drama seemed never-ending, and Don almost fell off the deep end (again) in a whirlwind season that ended with a huge question mark hovering over every major character's head. Here's hoping AMC and Matthew Weiner settle that reported contract dispute already and start production on the much-anticipated fifth season.

'The Venture Bros.' and New TV Shows on DVD, Streaming Online for March 22, 2011

by Mike Moody, posted Mar 22nd 2011 7:00PM
the venture bros. season 4 blu-rayIt could be argued that the world is split into two camps: those who get and love 'The Venture Bros.' and those who don't.

The bizarre, hilarious and (sometimes) brilliant Adult Swim series skewers the conventions of 1960s action toons like 'Johnny Quest' and 'Space Ghost' while paying homage to their silly and antiquated storytelling and animation styles. But 'The Venture Bros.' is much, much more than a campy parody show.

In four short seasons, creator Jackson Publick has crafted an intricate mythology for his cracked fantasy world that features an ever-growing cast of weirdo scientists, adventurers, heroes, and villains with dueling agendas, strange love lives and shifting personalities.

The Complete Fourth Season, available today on Blu-ray along with Season 4, Volume 2 on DVD, follows the Venture family as they're separated from brawny bodyguard Brock Samson and Dean Venture is tasked with killing Hitler, whose soul has been transferred to a bull dog. Yeah, a bull dog. Like I said, two camps!

'Batman: The Brave and the Bold' and New TV Shows on DVD, Streaming Online for March 15, 2011

batman brave bold dvdThe Dark Knight's animated adventures in 'Batman: The Brave and the Bold' offer a pleasant departure from Christopher Nolan's dark and broody Bat-films.

The Nolan flicks are great, but 'Brave and the Bold' feels almost revolutionary and, in a way, punk rock in its depiction of Bruce Wayne's crime-fighting world as a colorful, jokey, kid's comic book come to life.

Catch up with the sunny Cartoon Network series with 'Batman: The Brave and the Bold' Season 1, Part 2 available today on DVD. The show isn't exactly for everyone, but it should please any Batfan looking for a smart, action-packed and humor-filled dose of cartoon superhero badassery.

'The Walking Dead' and New TV Shows on DVD, Streaming Online for March 8, 2011

by Mike Moody, posted Mar 8th 2011 12:00PM
AMC and Anchor Bay EntertainmentIt's a good day for discerning gorehounds: Season 1 of AMC's 'The Walking Dead' hits DVD and Blu-ray today. (Didya enter our giveaway yet?) Both sets feature all six season 1 episodes of the hit zombie-apocalypse drama based on the graphic novel by Robert Kirkman.

Kirkman even co-wrote a few episodes, including the haunting and suspenseful installment 'Tell It to the Frogs,' which saw lawman leader Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) finally reuniting with his family after fending off gobs of hungry, undead Atlantans.

Filmmaker Frank Darabont ('The Mist,' 'Shawshank Redemption') is the mastermind behind the show's artful mix of panic and pathos. Darabont pops up in a producers' convention panel and a "making-of" featurette on the season 1 DVD and Blu-ray special features (sorry, no commentary).

The highly anticipated second season of 'The Walking Dead' premieres later this year, but the short first season should satisfy your zombie fix for now.

'ReBoot' and New TV Shows on DVD, Streaming Online for March 1, 2011

by Mike Moody, posted Mar 1st 2011 3:15PM
reboot shout factory dvdBefore 'The Matrix,' there was 'ReBoot.' OK, maybe that's taking it a little too far, but it's hard not to overstate the importance and influence of 'ReBoot' -- it was the first fully computer-generated animated TV series, after all.

The sci-fi adventure series, which aired on Saturday mornings in the U.S. in the mid 1990s, stood out not only because of its highly stylized (but admittedly clunky by today's standards) computer-generated visuals, but also for its ambitious serial storytelling and its sly take on the world's growing obsession with technology and video games.

Shout! Factory has released Seasons 1 and 2, packaged together, today as well as the nine-disc 'Definitive Mainframe Edition,' which features a 20-page booklet, making of doc, and episode commentary from the series creators. Shiver me templates!

'Weeds' and New TV Shows on DVD, Streaming Online Feb. 22, 2011

weeds season 6 dvdSeason 6 of 'Weeds,' released today on DVD and Blu-ray, saw the Botwins fleeing (again) from the law, from a rogue journalist, from angry baby mamas and from Nancy's mob boss husband Esteban after the shocking event of the season 5 finale.

The uneven season, with the Botwins usually on the road or trading locales in seemingly every other episode, almost felt like the show was trying to reinvent itself after every hour. But, as usual, everything was held together by an engaging season-long arc, the Botwin boys' growing pains (Silas found a new dad! Shane is a demented genius!), Uncle Andy's wise, X-rated quips and, of course, a sad-funny guest spot from Oscar winner Richard Dreyfuss.

The emotional and exciting season finale still has fans looking forward to the show's seventh season, which premieres later this year.

'Project Runway' and New TV Shows on DVD, Streaming Online for Feb. 8, 2011

by Mike Moody, posted Feb 8th 2011 2:50PM
The Weinstein CompanyAfter jumping from Bravo to Lifetime for season 7, and the cancellation of the vapid spinoff 'Models of the Runway,' 'Project Runway' took a risk and expanded its format for season 8.

Episodes were stretched to the extra-fabulous running time of 90 minutes, and 17 contestants were chosen (one more than usual).

'The Complete Eighth Season,' released today on DVD, kicked off with the show's shortest challenge ever -- the aspiring designers only had five hours to make it work -- as Tim Gunn, Heidi Klum and returning judges Nina Garcia and Michael Kors presided over a season full of bitchy bickering, stressful challenges, big upsets and a few stunning collections.

A few celebrity guest judges, including Selma Blair, Betsey Johnson, Kristen Bell and January Jones, arrived to help separate the hot messes from the future runway stars.

Ricky GervaisIt's the moment all 'Office' fans have been waiting for: David Brent and Michael Scott finally cross paths in tonight's new episode (9PM ET, NBC).

Ricky Gervais makes a cameo in the show, which is a remake of the BBC show he created almost 10 years ago.

"It's a little more than if you blink, you'll miss it, but if you don't set your TiVo right, you'll miss it," said 'Office' show-runner Paul Lieberstein.

To celebrate the meeting of these two characters, we're giving away three copies of 'The Office: The Complete BBC Collection (First and Second Series Plus Special).' If you've never seen the British original, catch up on the inane and cringeworthy antics of David Brent, as hilariously played by Ricky Gervais.

'Glee' Season 2, Volume 1, available today, features the first 10 episodes of the hit series' sophomore year.

This first batch of season 2 eps, from 'Audition' to last December's 'A Very Glee Christmas,' are worth re-watching to see Ryan Murphy and his game cast tackle some heavy issues like bullying, faith, coming to terms with one's sexual identity and, of course, Britney Spears. Plus Gwyneth Paltrow!

The three-disc set also boasts a few featurettes, including 'The Wit of Brittany,' which captures all of Brittany's quirky one-liners going back to season 1, and 'Getting Waxed with Jane Lynch,' which chronicles the creation of the Sue Sylvester statue at Madame Tussaud's museum. There's also a bonus 'Rocky Horror' song that was recorded specifically for the DVD release.
