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.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: Season 1

Sure, the first season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles was only nine episodes, but the DVD is packed with more extras than most DVD sets with seasons twice that long. The DVD and Blu-ray are each only three discs long, but every disc is filled with special features (in addition to the three episodes on each disc). If you missed the season, it was recapped already, so I'll skip the episodes and go straight to the goodies.

Heroes: Season 2

Heroes: Season 2

If you are a Heroes fan, and I kind of presume that you are if you clicked on this column, this DVD set is one that you'll want to add to your collection. Now I'm not going to start defending the problematic and abridged second season of this superhero saga by saying that it was 13 incredible episodes. Because then I'd be lying, and I try not to do that on a regular basis. I thought the season was hit or miss, but still the set itself is pretty impressive and jam-packed full of extras that weren't just thrown on as an afterthought. The producers and cast of the show clearly have a passion for this series, and that comes across here.

I'm also not going to even attempt to thoroughly explain all that went down on this show in season 2; we've got full recaps for that. But suffice it to say it involved feudal Japan, a biological virus, a girl who has bleeding eyes, an Irish pub, lots of DNA stuff, a teenager who can fly and one notorious bad guy who likes to slice open heads and steal brains.

Prison Break: Season 3

Prison Break: Season 3

You either love Prison Break, or you shake your head at the implausibility of all the narrow escapes from the law and convenient mystery assistance and write the show off. If you love it, then of course you'll want to get the third season on DVD. Just don't get your hopes up for a lot of extras.

The X-Files: Revelations

The X-Files: Revelations

All nine seasons of The X-Files are available on DVD. There are also four Mythology sets of 14-16 episodes that focus on different aspects of the ongoing conspiracy storylines. But chances are, you don't have time to watch all 202 episodes as a refresher before checking out The X-Files: I Want to Believe. So don't be fooled by the promises of The X-Files: Revelations, a two-disc, eight-episode set that claims to be the "essential guide to the X-Files movie."

This Spaced for Rent

This <i>Spaced</i> for Rent

The new Spaced DVD comes out today, and director Edgar Wright and writers/stars Simon Pegg and Jessica Hynes are signing in New York as I write this, but they actually hit the Big Apple last night to host a screening and Q&A, and the event was a resounding success. There was a line of hopeful attendees stretching from 2nd Avenue all the way to 3rd Avenue (that's far, for you non-New Yorkers), and while not everyone in line was able to make it into the event (which was held at the small but pretty Village East Cinemas), Hynes, Pegg and Wright walked the length of the queue, shaking hands and posing for pictures with everyone who was waiting.
