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

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

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.
