TV on DVD: Tuesday, November 9, 2010

Picture it... 1985! A relatively young Betty White enters, stage left...

The Golden Girls: 25th Anniversary Complete Collection
Remember how Sophia would carry her bamboo handbag everywhere? Well, now you can carry it everywhere as well, although you really only need to carry it from your rocking chair to the TV. That's because the special faux-bamboo gift packaging contains all seven seasons of the best show about senior citizens ever to air on television. That's 180 episodes of Sophia, Rose, Blanche and Dorothy, all of whom won Emmy Awards for their performances! Plus, in addition to each season's bonus features -- including interviews, trivia and fashion commentary by Joan Rivers -- the collection comes with a set of Golden Girls-themed playing cards. Perfect for bridge night on the lanai!

Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Season
Whether you love the new Doctor or hate him, you -- really? You hate him? C'mon, he's no David Tennant, but he's fun and wacky! He wears a bow tie! Well, for those of you who do love the new Doctor (and the new companion, Amy Pond), this set contains all 13 episodes, an inside look at each, two new between-episode "Meanwhile in the Tardis" scenes, outtakes, commentaries, video diaries, Monster Files and more. Sonic Screwdriver sold separately.

Sherlock: Season One
The BBC is on an updating frenzy! After successfully relaunching Doctor Who, they rebooted King Arthur, Robin Hood and now Sherlock Holmes. Kicking off from the recent movie, this series sets them in present-day London, where a high-functioning sociopath and a PTSD army doctor team up to solve crimes for Scotland Yard. This set of three feature-length movies includes commentaries, the pilot episode and a making-of documentary.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: Vol. XIX
Four terrible movies -- Robot Monster, Bride of the Monster, Devil Doll and Devil Fish -- make up this latest set of MST3K goodness, complete with introductions, mini-posters and a figurine of Gypsy the robot. If they make a Cambot figurine for the next boxed set, we will literally piss ourselves with incredulity.

Men of a Certain Age: The Complete First Season
I enjoyed the first few episodes of this series, and I think it represents some of the best acting Bakula, Braugher and Romano have ever done. However, I need a little something-something more to really grab my attention. Three middle-aged guys having mid-life and mid-career crises just doesn't do it for me. Now, if the three of them fought vampires? Van Helsings of a Certain Age? I'd leave TNT on 24-7, just in case there was a re-run. Still, worth checking out on DVD, especially with behind-the-scenes footage, deleted scenes, gag reels and commentaries.

Hell's Kitchen: Season 4 - Raw & Uncensored
If food as raw as this DVD was sent up the pass, Gordon Ramsay would probably go back into the editing room and yell something uncensored at the producers. "Why are you sending me raw DVDs, you f$#%ing donkeys?!"

Also out this week: Lie to Me: Season Two, Californication: The Third Season, Metalocalypse: Season Three, The Boondocks: The Complete Third Final Season, Scooby Doo, Where Are You?: The Complete Series, Whale Wars: Season 3.
