A bunch of DVDs were released this week that only super-fans of the shows will probably care about, but that non-fans should probably check out anyway, just so they can see what they're missing.
The Simpsons: The Complete 20th Season
You read that correctly: the 20th season is now out on DVD, even though Season 12 was the last released. While the 20th has a few highlights, it's no surprise that "Four Great Woman and a Manicure" (the first Bart-free episode ever) is the lowest-rated episode in the Simpsons history.
Kathy Griffin: She'll Cut a Bitch
By now, you either like Kathy Griffin or you don't. The beauty of watching her stand-up on DVD is that it's uncensored, not unlike CNN's 2010 New Year's Eve coverage.
Top Gear: The Complete Season 11 and Season 12
Top Gear is essentially about two guys who like screwing around with cars, but the fact that they're British makes the show seem sort of sophisticated, even when they're doing everything they can to run those cars into the ground. Tom Jones and Mark Wahlberg make guest appearances in Season 12, which must be Top Gear's idea of including a little something for the ladies.
ER: The Complete 12th Season
The doctors treat a baby monkey in episode 6! This annoyed fans, but come on! A baby monkey!
Fame: Season 2
If the movie remake didn't do it for you, rest assured that they'll keep pumping out seasons of the original show on DVD. There's also great modern shows like Glee that are culturally relevant, but who am I to teach old dogs new tricks?
Jon & Kate Plus 8: Season 5 - Big Changes
Season 5 is the final season, when the show stops centering around the adorable kids and instead focuses on Jon being a douche.
Also out this week:
Robin Hood: Season Three People seem to love this BBC series, but I personally prefer the 1973 animated adaptation.
Make It or Break It: Vol. 1 (Extended Edition) Four cute teenage girls trying to be gymnasts. My eyes are up here, buddy.
Becker: The Third Season Ted Danson was also in Curb, Bored to Death, Damages and some other show.
Transformers: Season 2, Vol. 2 The cartoon cars, not the racist CGI cars.
