We love the '80s.

Jane By Design: Volume 1
A silly, spirited amalgam of every single '80s movie ever made, this ABC Family series has overcome mixed beginnings to become one of our favorite guilty pleasures. When our plain Jane (Erica Dasher) heroine scores a coveted job at a major fashion house despite still being in high school, she has to find a way to balance her school life with her job as a foot soldier for her demanding Anna Wintour-like boss, Gray Chanlder Murray (Andie MacDowell). Like all guilty pleasures, Jane By Design is often oh-so-bad, which is precisely what makes it oh-so-good.
Extras: None

Batman: The Brave and the Bold -- Season 2, Part 2
The penultimate DVD release of the much-liked Cartoon Network superhero team-up series (which ended its run last November -- the final DVD set with the entirety of the show's third season will be available in June) offers 14 episodes from the back half of Season 2. Watch the Caped Crusader join forces with such colleagues as Plastic Man and Captain Marvel to stave off such threats as the Supreme Chairman of Qward and the Monster Society of Evil. The Dark Knight this ain't.
Extras: None

Scarecrow & Mrs. King: The Complete Third Season
If the return of 21 Jump Street has got you eager for more '80s nostalgia, check out the third season of the 1983-1987 CBS series starring Bruce Boxleitner as government agent Lee Stetson a.k.a. Scarecrow and Kate Jackson as Amanda King, the divorced housewife he recruited to join his top-secret organization. Needless to say, they eventually go from being professional to personal partners, if you know what we mean. In fact -- spoiler alert! -- this is the season where they lock lips and enjoy their first for-realsies kiss.
Extras: None

Also on DVD:
A week after Steven Spielberg's big-screen Tintin feature arrived on DVD, here comes The Adventures of Tintin: Season 2, the second season of the animated series that played on HBO in the '90s. Relive the '90s and the '70s with the Blu-ray release of That '70s Show: Season 1 the show that can be credited (or is that blamed?) with making Ashton Kutcher a star.
