iZombie Gets Blu-ray Release, Season 2 Out Today

When iZombie (a wonderfully fun and suspenseful TV show) came out on DVD last fall, unlike the superhero DC TV shows, it didn’t get a Blu-ray release. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has now remedied that through its Warner Archive direct-to-consumer line. Which is a way for dedicated fans, either of the show or the format, to demonstrate their desire for the product without the company having to commit to up-front print runs or distribution. You can order through the WBShop […]

Teen Titans Go! The Complete First Season

Courtesy of Warner Archive comes Teen Titans Go! The Complete First Season on Blu-ray. Two discs hold 26 episodes each for a total of 52, which make for almost 10 hours of fast-paced, colorful entertainment. Each episode, sans credits, is only a bit over ten minutes, which keeps things moving quickly. That suits well the daily life aspect of the show. As Warner describes the series, What happens after everyone’s favorite teenage super heroes have saved the planet from total […]

Young Justice: Invasion

OK, everyone who told me, when I said I didn’t like Young Justice, that it got better, was right. Young Justice: Invasion, the renamed second and final season of the animated series, is much more watchable. In fact, I enjoyed it enough to watch the whole thing in one long day. At the start of this season, we’ve jumped ahead in time five years, which means the characters aren’t so whiny and juvenile, a plus. The overarching theme is battling […]

Loopy de Loop: The Complete Collection

Review by KC Carlson An extremely rare piece of Hanna-Barbera history was recently released from the Warner Archive. Loopy de Loop is frequently described as Hanna-Barbera’s “lost” character. He was a relatively long-running character (debuting in 1959 and ending in 1965), but unlike popular HB characters Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear, and The Flintstones — whose prime-time series ran approximately during the same time as Loopy’s run — you couldn’t see Loopy’s adventures on your television screen. Loopy de Loop cartoons […]

Young Justice on Blu-ray

I was given a chance to check out the release of Young Justice on Blu-ray from the Warner Archive. I hadn’t gotten into the show the first few times I tried it, but I wanted to give it another shot, for two reasons. I knew it got better later, and sometimes, knowing exactly how a series played out — in this case, that there was no finale, just cancellation, after only two seasons — can set expectations more appropriately. There […]
