TV on DVD: Tuesday, May 25, 2010

Are there vampire hoarders? We imagine most vampires don't have houses full of stuff, since they keep moving from town to town to find their next unsuspecting populace. But if there were, it'd probably be pretty dangerous, knowing that somewhere in that mound of half-empty plasma bags and dirty capes is a loaded crossbow, just waiting to go off.

True Blood: The Complete Second Season
Vampire abstinence is overrated. Indiscriminate vampire shagging is where it's at! So why not come on over from the Twilight side of town to True Blood, where you totally don't have to wait until you're married to have sex with a vampire or two. Or three. And a shapeshifter. And maybe a Maenad. That's a follower of the Greek god Dionysus, who is granted certain powers of influence and can be whipped into a murderous rage. And possibly a mermaid. Hey, Season 3 hasn't even gotten started yet.

Leverage: The Complete Second Season
If the A-Team mostly engaged in role-playing, used dynamite and machine guns sparingly, and had had a female Faceman, they'd be the Leverage team, a band of criminals bound together to take down the fat cats who have the little guy pinned under a barrel of influence and money. The DVD set for Season 2 sports a bunch of fun extras, including tips from the show's characters:

Hoarders: The Complete Season One
Does having a large collection of comic books, action figures and DVDs that you just can't bring yourself to get rid of constitute hoarding? Because I live in constant fear-slash-desire that I will somehow be chosen to be on this awesomely addictive intervention show. I'm particularly worried/excited that they will discover my box of Lord of the Rings toys and sell them at a garage sale for a huge markdown.

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (Blu-Ray)
We don't normally spotlight Blu-ray re-releases, but this is Joss Whedon we're talking about here. And this is the first Blu-ray to have a musical commentary track, not to mention the regular commentary, a few making-of docs and application videos for the Evil League of Evil. All it's missing is a Bad Horse hoofprint autograph. And if you're in the mood for more Felicia Day, why not pick up The Guild: Season 3? It's got even more Felicia, and more nerdiness, if that's even possible.

The Virginian: The Complete First Season
Do you think if The Virginian were alive today, and he was a high school student, bullies would call him "virgin" in front of the girl he liked? "Hey, virgin!" "It's The Virginian!" "Whatever, virgin -- gimme your lunch money!" And he wouldn't even be able to shoot them, because the security guards would have confiscated his six-guns at the metal detector.

Also out this week:
George Gently: Series 2 Don't let the name fool you; there's nothing gentle about murder. ...Well, most murders.
Royal Pains: Season One Obscenely rich people are getting sick left and right in this show, and yet we can't bring ourselves to care.
Flashpoint: The Second Season Not to be confused with Flash Point, the family nudist colony drama.
