One of the perks of getting a full series all in one package is the added bonus features -- usually added in the form of an extra disc (or even multiple discs). The other major perk is the fancier, and usually space-saving, packaging. The 4400: The Complete Series definitely benefits from the added bonus features, though the packaging is pretty standard material. The packaging is slick enough to make four seasons take up a lot less space in your DVD collection, but the liner notes leave something to be desired. They're a one-fold design, and the only information about the set is on the inside (the front and back cover are both decorative). So the writing is tiny, and all it tells us is the names of the episodes, a short description of each (including "With commentary" for those that have commentary), and then "Special Features," with no description of what special features are included on each disc until the final bonus disc. Well, guess we'll have to go digging...
TV killed the podcasting stars.
Cue up the Marty Robbins and relive the entire run of Breaking Bad.
After last week's epic hour-long trip across the pond, "The Pawnee-Eagleton Tip Off Classic" was bound to be a letdown. And while it wasn't our favorite half-hour of the show, it still had a lot of redeemable elements. We couldn't totally hate anything that involved Ron Swanson learning to Vine and Kristen Bell being mean to Leslie. Also, we're always down for anything that involves learning more about the fascinating, and fiscally troubled Eagletonians.
Pick up Downton Abbey's third season on DVD... or Shirley MacLaine gets it!
Community rocks the Comic-Con house.
Get your (animated) adventure on.
Glenn Close is back on the case for a fourth and (almost) final time.
Hail to the Chief! Well, the Vice Chief at least. HBO's Veep kicks off this Sunday and we can't wait to see Julia Louis-Dreyfus ascend to the second highest office in the land, not just because this is Elaine Benes we're talking about, but also due to the fact that it's sadly still all too rare to see a female politician elected to televised office. As Veep's first season unspools, we fully expect Louis-Dreyfus's VP Selina Meyer to become one of our favorite TV politicians. In the meantime, here's are our current picks for the best political characters to hold elected office on TV. (That latter requirement is why you won't find our favorite Deputy Parks Director and current Pawnee city council candidate, Leslie Knope, on this list. If she beats Bobby Newport in the election, though, she'll instantly jump to the number one spot.)
You know, nerd culture is totally mainstream now, so when you use the term "nerd" derogatorily, you're the one out of the Zeitgeist.
