DVDomination #7

Things are being shaken up behind the scenes here at K105, the Weasel. That explains the dip in consistancy, also we work too damn it, and when that sweet payday arrives I like many others depart to the local shop to pick up this weeks top DVDs.

1. Battlestar Galactica - Season 2.5

While a show i'm not familiar with it's hard to avoid the praise that this reimagining has earned through its two seasons of airtime, which is impressive given the crowd we're talking about here. Fans looking to complete their collection and catch up before the premiere of season three can look forward to the 10 final episodes of the 20 episode season being stretched over 3 discs.

Special Features
An extended version of the first episode, "Pegasus"
Deleted scenes
Podcast commentaries
Producer's video log.

2. My Name is Earl: Season 1

Jason Lee is one of those people you just want to see more of, so it's smart to give the man a T.V. series all his own, if anyone deserves one it's Brodie Bruce. My Name is Earl chronicles Earl as he roams across the land balancing out his karma after a life of wrong doing halted by a fateful car accident. Destined to be square with everyone he's burned in the past, Earl meets with a quirky assortment of characters from his past in order to right his wrongs and earn a good life.

The show was one of the better comedic oferings of the past season and all 24 episodes here are presented once more on a three disc set.

Special Features
Commentary on select episodes
Exclusive Earl Mis-Adventure "Bad Karma"
Karma Is A Funny Thing Blooper Reel
Making Things Right: Behind The Scenes Of My Name Is Earl featurette
Deleted Scenes

3. Godzilla - Gojira Deluxe Collector's Edition

"Gojira!" also arrives to our shores in a classy 2-disc set which tells the original tale of the monsters night out on the town. The 164 ft. beast is presented here in his original Japanese edition with subtitles as well as his american debut "Godzilla: King of the Monsters" featuring a shorter cut of botable difference. For those wanting to see a serious take on the Japan bashing sea beast and have the two editions together for maximum man in suit, this is the choice pick of the week.

Special Features
• Both Japanese and American editions
Audio commentaries
• Original Trailers
Making of the Suite Featurette
Godzilla: Story Development featurette

Well that's it for this week's DVDomination, as always buy accordingly. Failure to do so can result in accidents happening. No that's not a threat, though I do know a guy....
