While Rizzoli & Isles keep Boston safe from crime, Bering & Lattimer keep Warehouse 13 on lockdown and Goren and Eames track down crooks in the Big Apple.
Rizzoli & Isles: The Complete First Season
One of last summer's big cable hits, Rizzoli & Isles casts Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander as a pair of odd-couple crime solvers based out of Boston. One's a trash-talking police detective and the other's an uptight medical examiner. Guess which is which! Before Season 2 premieres on July 11, catch up on such Season 1 cases as the possible return of the Boston Strangler and a sniper who takes aim at marathoners mid-race.
Extras: Two behind-the-scenes featurettes and a gag reel.
Warehouse 13: Season Two
Season 2 of the popular SyFy series finds U.S. Secret Service agents Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly) and Peter Lattimer (Eddie McClintock) continuing their gigs as the nation's highest-paid security guards as they keep an eye on the titular warehouse, where most of our UMO's (that's Unidentified Mystical Objects) are kept. Apparently their skills could use a little work though, because important artifacts keep slipping out the door. Then again, if they were actually competent at their jobs, there wouldn't be much material for a show.
Extras: Cast and crew commentary tracks on three episodes, a trio of featurettes, deleted scenes, gag reel and the Warehouse 13/Eureka cross-over episode, "Crossing Over."
Law & Order: Criminal Intent: Season 6
The third Law & Order series has seen numerous actors come and go during its decade-long run. Season 6's line-up includes Chris Noth's Mike Logan (gone after Season 7), Julianne Nicholson's Megan Wheeler (cut after Season 8), Eric Bogosian's Danny Ross (dies in Season 9) and, of course, Vincent D'Onofrio's Robert Goren and Kathryn Erbe's Alexandrea Eames, the only characters that have lasted the entire run. Jeff Goldblum fans will have to wait until Season 8 and 9 arrive on DVD to enjoy his deadpan stylings.
