iZombie Season 3 Announced for Blu-ray and DVD

iZombie is a lot of fun, with some great performances, and I’m glad to hear there are already plans for a fourth season. In the meantime, all 13 episodes of season 3 will be available on DVD and Blu-ray (via the Warner Archive, as with Lucifer) on October 3 as iZombie: The Complete Third Season. Rose McIver plays Liv Moore, a medical examiner who uses her unique state to solve crimes in partnership with police detective Clive Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin) […]

Riverdale on DVD, Blu-ray on August 15

After complaining about Riverdale early on, I have to admit that the show grew on me. It helped that I quit thinking about it as an Archie comic adaptation and instead approached it as a CW “angsty teen drama“. It made for fun popcorn viewing, particularly as we settled into the characters and how extreme they could be. It was the CW’s top new show this year, so maybe other people felt the same way. In case you missed it […]

Lucifer Season 2 Comes to DVD, Blu-ray in Split Release

I know a lot of people giggle at the premise — she’s a cop, he’s the Devil, they solve crimes in LA — but Lucifer, starring Tom Ellis, is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. This past season, season 2, increased the family dynamics by adding in his mother, played by Tricia Helfer, to complicate his relationship with Detective Chloe (Lauren German), his angel brother Amenadiel (DB Woodside), his demon friend Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt), and his therapist Dr. Linda (Rachael […]

Static Shock: The Complete First Season

While I liked Icon better (because of the lead female character), the Milestone comic Static, launched in 1993, was more fun. The title character, a teen with electrical powers, was a modern take on Spider-Man. Virgil Hawkins was a kid given amazing abilities, struggling with how to use them well while juggling family and school responsibilities. The first issues were written by Robert L. Washington III and Dwayne McDuffie and penciled by John Paul Leon. I never watched the cartoon […]

Batman: The Brave and the Bold Season Three on Blu-ray

Completing the trilogy of seasons, Warner Archive has released season three of Batman: The Brave and the Bold on Blu-ray. This final season only had 13 episodes, contained here on one Blu-ray disc, but there are some real gems, with many inspired by famous comic stories or nostalgia for a certain style of storytelling. The season begins with “Joker: The Vile and the Villainous!”, an episode from the villain’s perspective as he teams up with his inspiration, the Golden Age […]

The Zeta Project Now Fully Available From Warner Archive

Back in 2009, the first season of The Zeta Project was put out on DVD. This animated series isn’t well-known, but it’s loved by its fans. It’s a spin-off of Batman Beyond, focusing on a rogue robot who doesn’t want to be an assassin (voiced by Diedrich Bader) and the young runaway (Julie Nathanson) it teams up with. The show ran 26 episodes. (Click that first link for more information from our previous review of the set.) The first season […]

Thirteen Women

I watched Thirteen Women, a 1932 proto-thriller, because I was inspired by the impressively good You Must Remember This podcast, which has started a new series on “Dead Blondes”. It sounds morbid, but it’s an interesting way to explore how women are sold as sex objects and often end up the worse for it. The first episode focused on Peg Entwistle, whom you’ve likely never heard of. She’s best known, if at all, for being the woman who committed suicide […]

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 […]
