Television on Blu-Ray

Hannibal: The Complete Second Season (Bryan Fuller) Explores the early relationship between the renowned psychiatrist and his patient, a young FBI criminal profiler, who is haunted by his ability to empathize with serial killers. Starring Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, and Caroline Dhavernas

Based on all the murmurs and the buzz, I should be making Hannibal a priority to knock off my shame list. Special features included are:

  • Audio Commentaries on Select Episodes with Cast and Crew
  • This Is My Design Documentary
  • “The Style of a Killer” featurette
  • “Bodies of Lies” featurette
  • Hannibal Season 2: Killer Intentions
  • Post Mortem with Scott Thompson (Webisodes)
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Gag Reel

Arrow: The Complete Second Season (Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Andrew Kreisberg) – Spoiled billionaire playboy Oliver Queen is missing and presumed dead when his yacht is lost at sea. He returns five years later a changed man, determined to clean up the city as a hooded vigilante armed with a bow. Starring Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, and David Ramsey

Our own Gwen Stacy reviewed this title. Here’s what she has to say:

For avid viewers of the show, the plot and story lines of Season 2 should not be unfamiliar. Deathstroke makes for a spectacular villain. Aside from this season’s narrative arc, the quality of the season visually has vastly improved and is clear on Blu-ray. This Blu-ray boasts many special features that should be of interest to fans. The featurettes should be of particular interest to film geeks as the production staff go into great detail behind visual effects such as the CGI construction of the island flashbacks, the physical stunts the actors and actresses of the show endures, interviews with stunt doubles, and a behind-the-scenes look at wire-fighting techniques and how they are filmed. The gag reel in particular is above average for its level of comedy. Special features included are:

  • From Vigilante to Green Arrow
  • How Did They Do That?! Action & FX
  • Wirework: The Impossible Moves of Arrow
  • Select Episode Commentaries
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Gag Reel

The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Seventh Season (Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady)  A woman who moves into an apartment across the hall from two brilliant but socially awkward physicists shows them how little they know about life outside of the laboratory. Starring Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar

(We’re giving this away – ENTER TO WIN!)

Season 7 of The Big Bang Theory has many particular moments that continue to make this show enjoyable for long term fans. I’m not really a fan, but I do appreciate that creators and writers allow the characters to be themselves without the idea that they need to change because of who they are or what they like. There are ton of great special features that are sure to make any TBBT fan yell Bazinga! From experience, I know panels are really hard to get into for top level shows like this, so being able to see them from the comfort of your own home is a treat. The special features included are:

  • String Theory Serenade
  • James Earl Jones: The Un-Conventional Guest Star
  • BBTea Time
  • The Big Bang Theory‘s May the 4th
  • The Big Cendrowski
  • 2013 Comic Con Panel
  • Johnny Galecki Crashes the BBT Writers Panel
  • Gag Reel

Sleepy Hollow: The Complete First Season (Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci) Ichabod Crane is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to unravel a mystery that dates all the way back to the founding fathers. Starring Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie, and Orlando Jones

I cannot champion Kurtzman and Orci after what they’ve done with Transformers, Star Trek, Cowboys & Aliens, and now Spider-man. They are toxic, and this show is pretty terrible as well. The concept is unique, but the writing is pretty awful. Special features included are:

  • Welcome to Sleepy Hollow
  • Mysteries and Mythology: The Secrets of Sleepy Hollow
  • Deleted Scenes
  • The Corbin Files
  • Welcome to the 21st Century, Mr. Crane
  • The Horseman
  • The Horseman’s Head
  • Audio Commentaries
  • Gag Reel

South Park (Trey Parker and Matt Stone) Follows the misadventures of four irreverent grade-schoolers in the quiet, dysfunctional town of South Park, Colorado. Starring Trey Parker and Matt Stone

I feel like it has been forever since this season aired. The Black Friday/Game of Thrones episode alone is a sight to behold. I think that because this season only had 10 episodes compared to the rest of the series is one of the reasons it feels so long ago. Usually we get some episodes in the spring to make a full 20+ episode season. Regardless, the Parker and Stone continue to keep their controversial social commentary cartoon ahead of the pack. Special features included are:

  • Mini-Commentaries for Each Episode with Parker and Stone
  • Deleted Scenes
  • More TBA

Dragon Ball Z (Season 5) (Daisuke Nishio)  Seven years of peace have passed since the defeat of the monstrous Cell, and the Z-Fighters have enjoyed a return to normal life. Goku has eagerly continued his training in Other World, Krillin has gotten married, and Gohan has renewed his scholarly pursuits while attempting to navigate the pitfalls of high school. Two fresh new Saiyan faces have also appeared on the scene—Goku’s son Goten, and Vegeta’s son Trunks! Starring Sean Schemmel, Stephanie Nadolny, Christopher Sabat, Daisuke Gōri, Mayumi Tanaka, and Kenji Utsumi

This is wear the show kind of loses me. This is the between saga between Cell and Buu. Not much really happens and it’s just a lot of filler. Special features included are:

  • Inside Dragon Ball Z: Interview with Justin Cook
  • Inside Dragon Ball Z: Interview with Nathanael Harrison
  • Dragon Ball Z Card Game: Past, Present and Future
  • Textless Opening Song
  • Textless Closing Song
  • U.S. Trailer
  • Trailers

Grimm: The Complete Third Season (Stephen Carpenter, David Greenwalt, and Jim Kouf) A homicide detective discovers he is a descendant of hunters who fight supernatural forces. Starring David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch

I’ve never seen this show, nor do I know much about it. But it has it’s fandom, which has kept it alive for three seasons thus far, with a fourth starting this October. Special features included are:

  • Something Wesen This Way Comes: Inside Season 3 of Grimm
  • Double Take: Fighting a Hundjäger
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Gag Reel
  • Meltdown Digital Series
  • Love Is in the Air: Elegant Endeavors Digital Series
