DVDomination #4

This week's DVDomination is completely comprised of T.V. series hitting the racks as the month's film releases haven't been upto snuff, a result of a poor spring. Luckily the T.V. series this week are above your usual offering, so we hope you enjoy.

1) Arrested Development Season 3

Really this is such a great pick who needs anything else for the remainder of the week? The epic escapades of the Bluth clan come to a dramatic conclusion in this third and final season sporting 13 episodes in anamorphic transfers. For fans of the show it's bittersweet to relive GOB's freechicken, Michael Bluth's romance with the British faced Rita, George Michael Bluth's romance with Maebe and the conclusion to the series "Harboring Resentment". For non-fans don't make a huge mistake, check this series out.

Special Features

• Select Episode Commentary
• Deleted/Extended Scenes
• Blooper Real [7 min.]
• The Last Day on Location

2) The Tick: Season 1

At last the mighty Tick finds it's way onto DVD! Fans have been waiting forever for this Saturday Morning gem to arrive, I know I have. This set collects 12 of the 13 episodes from the first season*. This is the more prominent of the Saturday morning cartoon sets also seeing release this week, the others being Darkwing Duck and Tailspin. Sadly the announcement of this release fails to mention the special features of the 2-disc set but for fans the episodes are the main attraction, any interviews and commentaries are icing on the cake.

* Due to "creative considerations" episode 11 ("The Tick vs. The Mole Men") is not included.

3) Nip/Tuck Season 3

Nip/Tuck rounds out this weeks trio of T.V. series [What can I say? Weak slate of film releases this week]. The set contains all 15 episodes spread over 6-discs covering Sean McNamara and Christian Troy's continuing body of work as Miami's top plastic surgeons. This season resolves the mystery, the identity and motive of the Carver, established in he previous season. New faces and new directions for our old favorites grace this, the most outrageous season of Nip/Tuck yet.

Special Features
• Severed Parts: unaired scenes
• Chasing the Carver
• The Perfect Look: set design
• 6 Deleted Scenes
• Gag Reel

Thus concludes another week of DVDomination, buy accordingly.
