Pushing Daisies: Season 1

Pushing Daisies: Season 1

The first thing you'll notice about the Pushing Daisies first season DVD is that underneath the totally expected cardboard sleeve with Lee Pace and Anna Friel on the cover are an inner case and liner notes that look like a diner menu from the 1950s. Oh, and the actual discs? Look like pies! Very sweet, and we're just getting started.

Each of the three discs includes three of the season's nine episodes, but Disc 3 contains all of the special features... or, wait, make that THE special feature, since there is only one. (Unless you're counting the ability to turn the pre-episode "Previously on..." segment on and off, in which case, don't count that. You'll only be cheating yourself.)

Human Resources: Toby and Holly Talk Season 5 of The Office

Human Resources: Toby and Holly Talk Season 5 of <i>The Office</i>

For years, HR sad sack Toby has been a thorn in the side of The Office manger Michael Scott, not allowing him to have fun because the "fun" is usually mildly sexist, or racist, or both. Well, the Season 4 finale saw Dunder-Mifflin bid a fond (on Michael's part, anyway) farewell to Toby as he left for Costa Rica, and a lukewarm welcome to his beautiful and goofy replacement, Holly. In anticipation of the September 25th premiere of the new season, writer/producer Paul Lieberstein ("Toby") and Academy Award nominee Amy Ryan ("Holly") held a conference call where reporters got to ask them all of the questions we were dying to know about Season 5. The best parts are of the call are below, so enjoy! (That's what she said!)

Ugly Betty: Season 2

Ugly Betty: Season 2

Much as it pains me to admit this, I'm disappointed with the Season 2 set for Ugly Betty. I love this show. I think it is so smart and clever, and while Season 2 lacked some of the charm of the premiere season, it still had some stellar episodes. Those are all on here. But there's not a hell of a lot else.

Gossip Girl: Season 1

Gossip Girl: Season 1

Okay, first things first: How did Gossip Girl manage to have pretty much a regular-length season in the year of the writers' strike? Was it just too hip and sexy to be hurt by the strike, and thus immune? Or did the CW have the foresight to plan waaaaay ahead? Whatever it was, this five-disc set contains 18 episodes and is loaded with special features. But the slim and trim packaging is just like a true-blue Gossip Girl character: thin, sexy, and full of surprises.

Chuck: Season 1

Chuck: Season 1

The 13 episodes of the first season of Chuck are worth buying the DVD even if it weren't loaded with special features. And, while there aren't as many extras as some recent TV on DVD sets, almost all that's here is worthwhile. To wit...

Hellboy Meets World

Hellboy Meets World

This past summer, Hellboy 2: The Golden Army continued the big-screen exploits of Mike Mignola's devilish comic-book character, and the film was promoted with commercials putting Big Red into some well-known TV shows, including Chuck, American Gladiators and Inside the Actor's Studio. And while director Guillermo Del Toro wants to come back to do one more big screen entry, we may see Hellboy on the small screen again before that happens. And I ain't talking about Ron Perlman being in Sons of Anarchy, either.

Paging Tina Fey: SNL Needs You!

Paging Tina Fey: <I>SNL Needs You</I>! Dear Ms. Fey,

I know you are all busy casting guest stars like crazy for 30 Rock (though we sincerely wish you'd quit it for a while) and yeah, it's probably gonna take you hours to get ready to meet Oprah (what will you wear?!), but still, could you spare some time to help out an old friend?

Something For the Slacker in All of Us

Something For the Slacker in All of Us Are you sitting at work, watching the minutes tick by until you're finally free for the weekend, wondering how you'll occupy yourself for the next two days of work-free bliss? Are you thinking about risking the wrath of your significant other to go see The Dark Knight for the fifteenth time? There's not a lot new coming out this week in theaters. No new comic book hero movies, no new sci-fi epics, and no new horror villains to make you scream... unless you count Nicolas Cage's scary-ass hairdo in Bangkok Dangerous. Screw it. You might as well be a slacker and waste away the weekend on the Internet.

Here are a few things to help your eyes glaze over as you stare at the computer screen:

On Second Thought…

by Mindy Monez September 5, 2008 11:34 am
On Second Thought… Yesterday I did my fair share of bitching about the recent slew of stuntcasting news for 30 Rock's upcoming season, saying as a longtime fan I personally don't care to see an episode where Jennifer Aniston or Oprah Winfrey eats up significant screen time, but that I understand 30 Rock is in desperate need of ratings so I'll just suck it up for now. It's fair to say I owe them at least that much for all the hilarity they've given me. My resolve to give the show a break is wearing a little thin, however, with today's news that Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester and Blake Lively will be appearing in a November sweeps episode. Really? Now I have to endure those two as well? And more importantly, why those two over Chuck Bass?! He's hilarious! This begs the question -- how much worse is this going to get?

Bones Gets All British

<I>Bones</I> Gets All British

I know, Bones is a procedural and normally I'm not a procedural kind of girl, but I love this show. It just makes me happy. It's funny, and gory... and really, what more could I ask for? Now that they've got that whole ridiculously irritating and unsatisfying Gorgomon serial killer storyline out of the way, they are back on track. The season premiere was especially amusing, lots of great stuff with David Boreanaz's Booth suffering from culture clash during his trip to London with the sassy Dr. Brennan. And lots of Brennan making sexual innuendos about hot brainy guys, just to get a rise out of Booth. I just laughed, and then was grossed out, and then laughed some more, and then was sad for a minute and then laughed some more at the site of Booth in an itty bitty car. If you missed it, you can watch the whole episode after the jump. Trust me, even if you haven't been watching the show, you can hop right into this episode.
