whose line is it anyway
'The Shield' (Season 7, The Final Act)
What the Season's About: The final season of this gritty cop show follows Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis) as he battles with former teammate Shane (Walton Goggins) and faces off against the Armenian mob. As if that's not enough, Vic's ex-wife plots against him to expose all the crimes the Strike Team has committed, and he faces losing his job or landing in jail.
Special Features: Episode commentaries, deleted scenes, a behind-the-scenes featurette about the series finale and a season retrospective.
I sometimes enjoy watching Judge Judy, but it's one of those shows that I can't possibly imagine owning the DVDs. Once is enough for me. But if you're really into the show, there's a 2-Pack set being released this week.
But I have to get the Get Smart DVDs at some point. That's the only show being released that I have any interest in.
- The Cleaner - Season 1
- Corner Gas - Season 6
- Danny Phantom - Season 3
- Father Knows Best - Season 3
- Get Smart - Season 3
It warms my heart when I learn that a nerdy-looking guy like Carey can find love later in his life. His wife-to-be, Nicole Jaracz, is a culinary student graduate and doesn't seem to be involved in show business judging by the article. This can only be a good thing.
Here are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I have always been a sucker for Whose Line is it Anyway?, so I'm going to give this one a chance for sure. Thank God You're Here premieres on two Mondays, April 9 and 16 at 8 pm, before moving to its permanent timeslot on Wednesday, April 18 at 8 pm.
The original UK version of Whose Line Is It Anyway? that also aired on Comedy Central way back in the day is coming to DVD, and Adam couldn't be happier. This version was much smarter and funnier than the bastardized American version with Drew Carey because it never undermined the intelligence of its audience: the performers would throw out historical references and lines from Shakespeare without so much as batting an eye, while the ABC version stayed within a mainstream template by basing games on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? and other references of mass appeal.
That's not to say the US version was never funny, and it was helped tremendously by the fact that much of its main cast also appeared in the UK version (Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, Greg Proops, etc). If I had to choose just one version to watch for the rest of my life, though, it would be this one.
A box set including seasons one and two will hit stores on February 27.
