justified dvd'Deadwood' alum Timothy Olyphant traded in his Old West dress hat for a Stetson to play a modern lawman in 'Justified,' the critically-acclaimed FX drama inspired by an Elmore Leonard short story.

The show, about a U.S. Marshal charged with cleaning up his Kentucky hometown, was a hit for the cable network, earning more than 4 million viewers for its premiere episode, the second highest debut for FX since 'The Shield.'

The first season of 'Justified' was met with universal acclaim and helped bumped Olyphant's star up a few letters on the alphabet.

Season 2 premieres Feb. 9, but you can catch up with Marshal Raylan's adventures now with the recent release of the first season on DVD and Blu-ray. The discs feature several episodes with commentary by the cast members and series developer Graham Yost as well as a special preview of the second season.

But before you inevitably become obsessed with the exploits of a hard-partying group of American teens, why not catch up with their British predecessors?

'Hot in Cleveland' and New TV Shows on DVD, Streaming Online for Jan. 11, 2011

by Mike Moody, posted Jan 11th 2011 1:30PM
hot in cleveland season 1 dvdTV Land's surprise hit comedy 'Hot in Cleveland' takes the old fashioned approach to crafting a sitcom -- they do it in front of a live studio audience.

The show's cast also boasts the unstoppable Betty White and the lovely Valerie Bertinelli, as well as seasoned vets from sitcoms past, Jane Leeves ('Frasier') and Wendie Malick ('Just Shoot Me').

In the age of the single-camera comedy and the mockumentary, 'Hot in Cleveland' is definitely a throwback, but it's a funny, comforting and familiar throwback. Season 1, out on DVD today, also features guest spots from familiar faces like TV legend Carl Reiner, Susan Lucci and Huey Lewis.

The show heads back to the tube on June 15 with an even bigger lineup of guest stars, including Mary Tyler Moore, Isaiah Mustafa and Melanie Griffith.

'The Sarah Jane Adventures' and New TV Shows on DVD, Streaming Online for Jan. 4, 2011

by Mike Moody, posted Jan 4th 2011 1:30PM
sarah jane adventures season 3 dvdFor most of The Doctor's companions, flying around in the TARDIS and battling Daleks and Cybermen is the most dangerous and exciting time of their lives. But not for Sarah Jane Smith; her life only got crazier after parting ways with The Doctor. Now she's forging her own strange sci-fi tinged path in the BBC's 'Doctor Who' spinoff 'The Sarah Jane Adventures.'

Essentially pitched as 'Doctor Who for Kids,' 'Sarah Jane,' created by former 'New Who' mastermind Russell T. Davies, has won over critics and audiences of all ages with imaginative storytelling, humor and an assured lead performance from Elisabeth Sladen.

Season 3 of 'The Sarah Jane Adventures,' on DVD today, finds Sarah Jane and crew teaming up with new alien friends and going on some memorable timey wimey trips of their own.

Despite some sketchy-looking visual and make-up effects here and there -- the result of a reportedly slashed budget -- season 3 of 'Sarah Jane' offers six episodes of witty and fun fantasy/sci-fi that, like 'Doctor Who,' isn't afraid to get a little dark and challenging every now and then.

'United States of Tara' and New TV Shows on DVD, Streaming Online for Dec. 28, 2010

by Mike Moody, posted Dec 28th 2010 3:00PM
united states of tara season 2 dvdThe first season of 'United States of Tara' ended with Tara, a mother with Dissociative Identity Disorder played by Emmy and Golden Globe winner Toni Collette, on the road to recovery and surrounded by her dysfunctional but supportive family.

As season two begins, Tara seems to be winning the battle to suppress her alternate personalities, but tragedy soon strikes next door and her "alters" reemerge, more destructive and real than ever before.

Collette's performance, again nominated for a Golden Globe this year, is probably the best reason to recommend the second season of 'Tara' on DVD, but it's not the only one. The Showtime dramedy, created by Diablo Cody and produced by Steven Spielberg, is a smart, funny and engrossing look at a family dealing with a complex problem and learning to accept that the word "normal" means different things to different people.

The series returns to Showtime for a third season next year, so catch up with the Gregson family and Tara's growing stable of alters now.

'Futurama' and New TV Shows on DVD, Streaming Online for Dec. 21, 2010

by Mike Moody, posted Dec 21st 2010 3:00PM
futuramaComedy nerds everywhere cheered when Comedy Central announced it was bringing 'Futurama' back to the tube. But after a series of hit-and-miss DVD movies (that also aired on Comedy Central) and talk of recasting the show's lead voice actors (luckily, that never happened), fans started feeling nervous about the relaunch of Matt Groening and David X. Cohen's sharp, bitter and hilarious ode to the future.

As our own Danny Gallagher pointed out in his recaps of the show, the comeback started out on a rocky note with Groening and crew tying up the loose ends from the final DVD movie ('Into the Wild Green Yonder'). But the new season started to hit its stride around the halfway point with episodes about "robosexuality" -- the love that sprouts between a robot and a human -- and managed to end on a high note with an all-out mutant revolution.

The Volume 5 DVD and Blu-Ray set features commentary tracks for all 13 episodes, plus deleted scenes, making-of featurettes, and "Bender's First, Best, and Only Music Video!" Watch an exclusive deleted scene clip from the DVD, after the jump.

Plus: TV Squad is giving away five copies of the 'Futurama: Volume 5' DVD. To enter the giveaway, scroll down to the bottom of the post for details.

When TV Squad asked MacFarlane a week ago about the success of 'Family Guy: It's A Trap!' (his spoof on 'Return of the Jedi'), which comes out on Blu-Ray and DVD on Dec. 21, he carefully replied, "We don't know [it's a success] yet. It could bomb. You never know."

Yeah, right. Who doesn't want the highly-anticipated movie as a holiday gift or stocking stuffer? (All three 'Family Guy' 'Star Wars' spoofs are now available, too, on either DVD or Blu-Ray as a boxed set -- 'Laugh It Up Fuzzball: Family Guy Three-Pack.')
