Simpsons DVDHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

How can so many TV DVDs be released on one day and still there isn't one that I want to buy? The only one of the below sets that I might be interested in getting would be Simon & Simon. And that's only because it's one 80s action drama that I never got into for some reason but feel I should catch up on. But there's plenty of stuff for fans of every type of show, from Sons of Anarchy to The Smurfs.

  • The Beast - Season 1
  • Cracker - The Complete Series
  • Dexter - Season 3
  • Dirty Sexy Money - Season 2
  • Eli Stone - Season 2
  • Everybody Hates Chris - Season 4

New Amsterdam: Golden Boy

by Paul Goebel, posted Mar 7th 2008 1:42PM

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau & Zuleikha Robinson (S01E02) Whenever a character in a drama like New Amsterdam has a secret, there is always a character who knows about it. On Smallville, it was Pete and then Chloe, on The Greatest American Hero it was Bill and on this show it's Omar. The difference here is why Omar knows his secret...because he is John's son. That's different. It's really quite brilliant actually, because not only does it explain why Omar knows all about John and his entire history it also explains their relationship. Omar can be bitter and upset with John on a daily basis but they will always be there for each other since they are family. In the TV business, we call this the Simon and Simon principle.

A crapload of classic TV intros

by Richard Keller, posted Jan 6th 2008 2:01PM

Magnum P.I. is just one of the classic TV intros you'll find at Net Notables.Do you have a few minutes? How about 310 of them? You'll need that many to watch all 310 (as of this writing) classic, and not so classic, TV show intros listed over at Net Notables.

Originally, the list only contained 101 intros from shows that aired from 1989 and below. But, as commenters continued to ask where their favorite intro was, more and more links were added. Most of them link to videos on YouTube, which means the five hours and 10 minutes you need to view all of the listed items increases exponentially. To give you an example, after you watch the Magnum P.I.introduction that everyone remembers you can also view the first, more jazzy version of the theme.
