Danny McBride on DVD Week continues with the Season 2 release of his hysterical HBO series Eastbound & Down.
Eastbound & Down: The Complete Second Season
It wasn't until I caught that first season of the HBO series Eastbound and Down that I really got Danny McBride's brand of comedy. But now that I've seen his id completely unleashed as the ex-baseball player/professional scoundrel Kenny Powers, I'm a convert. Season 2 picks up with Powers in the process of fleeing his hometown and crossing the border into Mexico, where he ingratiates himself with a small-time ball club to scheme a comeback that naturally ends badly. Eastbound & Down isn't a show for everybody -- largely because it asks you to cheer on a raging, unapologetic asshole -- but at its best, it's one of the savviest, most daring comedies on TV right now. And look for Season One, newly out on Blu-ray this week as well.
Extras: Audio commentaries, deleted scenes, outtakes and a making-of featurette.
United States of Tara: The Third Season
Season 3 of this Diablo Cody-created series about a woman (Toni Collette) with dissociative identity disorder unexpectedly became the show's last when Showtime announced that they wouldn't be renewing it for a fourth year. So consider this your farewell to Tara, Alice, T and, last but not least, Buck. (Those are her alternate identities by the way, not the names of her family members.)
Extras: Nothing substantial has been announced.
Everwood: The Complete Fourth Season
It's finally here! The fourth and final season of one of The WB's most beloved (if, at the time, perpetually low-rated) shows. Watch Dr. Andrew Brown (Treat Williams) reconnect with his son Ephram (Gregory Smith) after the whole Madison fiasco, while Ephram and off-again, on-again love interest Amy (Emily VanCamp) decide whether to be on again. Also, marvel at Chris Pratt's ability to play a normal guy, before he discovered his hilarious inner idiot on Parks and Recreation.
Extras: You'll just have to content yourselves with the last 22 episodes.
Also on DVD
Tom Selleck continues to crack crimes as investigator Jesse Stone in the latest Stone TV movie mystery, Jesse Stone: Innocents Lost. Gordon Ramsey harasses chefs and gets paid big money for it on Hell's Kitchen: Season 5. And Storm Chasers: Season 3 follows a group of people that think driving into they eye of a hurricane is a better life choice than running away from it. But hey, they seem to be the ones with a TV show, so what do we know?
