TV on DVD: Tuesday, September 22, 2009

Wow. Some of the best TV shows on the air today (and one that got canceled, but is still pretty dope) come out on DVD this week, and we would totally run out and buy all of them and watch them back-to-back-to-back, but we have waaaayyy too much TV to watch tonight. There's just no time! Maybe next summer...

Castle: The Complete First Season
One of last year''s breakout hits, Castle combined the old-fashioned crime-solvin' of Murder She Wrote with the delicious Nathan Fillion goodness of Firefly. The supporting cast isn't necessarily up to Firefly levels, but Susan Sullivan is great as Castle's mom, and even the dull, professional Stana Katic promises to become more interesting as the show progresses. However, she is currently being outshone by the child actress who plays Castle's daughter.

30 Rock: Season 3
You may have heard of this show -- it's won a lot of Emmys. That's because it's pretty amazingly funny. This season includes several appearances by Jon Hamm and the episode where Salma Hayek wears a Battlestar Galactica T-shirt. Try not to let the backlash ruin it for you.

The Mentalist: The Complete First Season
Psych comparisons aside, Simon Baker is certainly charming, and I have no complaints about Robin Tunney as his boss. But Tim Kang steals the show with his deadpan, and Owain Yeoman oozes goofy charm. And Amanda Righetti... you just keep doing what you're doing. Which is apparently wearing very tight button-down shirts.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles - The Complete Second Season
I just used up my allotted word count on that title. I wonder if a shorter title would have helped the ratings...

Ugly Betty: Season 3 Apparently, they're going to make Betty less Ugly next season, which makes this a collector's item! Buy three!

Also out this week:
Law & Order: SVU - The Tenth Year Celebrating a decade of smacking around pedophiles!
Ghost Whisperer: The Compete Fourth Season Warning: Contains Jaime Kennedy.
Brotherhood: The Final Season Also available in the Complete Works of Annabeth Gish Collection.
Friday the 13th: The Series - The Final Season You know you've been waiting for it...
Taxi: The Complete Fourth Season I would buy this, but I already follow Danny DeVito on Twitter, and it's pretty much the same thing.
