Drop Dead Diva: The Complete Third Season DVD Review

Drop Dead Diva: The Complete Third Season DVD Review



Synopsis: Praised by critics and loved by fans, the one-hour, comedic drama tells the story of a shallow wannabe model who dies in a sudden accident only to find her soul resurfacing in the body of a brilliant, plus-size and recently deceased attorney, Jane.

Review: We began watching Drop Dead Diva from the beginning.  I wasn't sure how much longevity it had, but boy was I wrong.  This DVD represents the third season of this charming comedic-drama.   The third season was more of the same great show and its so wonderful to have a show with a lead that is full figured, you just don't get enough of that on television when the majority of our country is closer to her in size than these tiny actresses.  Its hard to relate sometimes.  This show leaves you with a positive feeling and an overall sense of fun, even when the situations get dramatic and messy!  We highly recommend this one.

    The Universe: The Complete Season Six Blu-Ray Review



    Synopsis: SEASON 6 of the pioneering series THE UNIVERSE takes viewers further than ever, to the extreme edges of our solar system where chaos and catastrophe bring epic drama to the planets - including some of the most horrifying days on Earth. Through stunning CGI, witness the birth pangs of the solar system, shocked into existence by a nearby supernova, and enduring over 700 million years of brutal bombardment by deadly asteroids; colossal cataclysms that shaped the planets and transformed their climates forever; and startling new scientific discoveries revealing a hellish history of continuous devastation on Earth. And travel to the system's very fringes to explore the possibility that the Sun has an evil twin, a monstrous star known as Nemesis suspected of causing every mass extinction in Earth's history. In signature cutting-edge style, THE UNIVERSE features astounding NASA footage and the opinions of leading astrophysicists to probe even more deeply into the billion-years-old story of the world beyond Earth presented in stunning high-definition on this Blu-ray set

    Review: The Universe was cut a bit short last season (season five) with only eight episodes.  This new blu-ray release of season six includes a full 14 episode season!  This is great news for us fans.  If you're familiar with the Universe show then you're getting more of the same high quality science and CGI fun.  If you're not familiar, know that you can jump into this one at any time and there is no time like now.  This set is great for homeschoolers and classrooms and those who just love to learn about space in a very entertaining way!

    History of the World in Two Hours Blu-Ray 3D



    Synopsis: Did you know that 1% of the white noise you see on your television is actually background radiation from the Big Bang? From the formation of the earth and the emergence of life, to the advance of man and the growth of civilization, the CGI-driven special HISTORY OF THE WORLD IN TWO HOURS offers viewers a rapid-fire view of 14 billion years of history - an epic story that reveals surprising connections to our daily lives, for the first time in majestic 3D!

    Review: The History Channel is renound for their quality documentary and educational programming. The History of the World in Two Hours is quite an undertaking! And its just like it sounds..they literally slam through millions of years of history in a few hours, lightly touching on most subjects and breezing by others. If you're looking for something in-depth, this one isn't for you, however, if you're looking for something well produced, fun and informative..check this one out! Its a blast.  This new release puts this great special onto a high-definition, 3D format!  This one is idea for those that have access to the technology.  The 3D is absolutely fantastic.  The select CGI effects come right out at you and really enchance the whole experience.  This makes the special even better for kids!

    Hell On Wheels - The Complete First Season Blu-Ray Review



    Synopsis: A Confederate soldier, out to exact revenge on the Union soldiers who murdered his wife, follows their trail to the raucous, traveling town alongside the construction of the transcontinental railroad.

    Review: We're a fan of westerns here at the Legion.   When AMC announced that they were following-up their fantastic drama "The Walking Dead" with an original western surrounding the events of the building of the transcontinental railroad, we were intrigued.  When we saw the pilot episode we were interested and as the show moved on, we were absolutely engaged and addicted.  This is without a doubt a new era for the western.  The character-driven drama follows a former confederate soldier, Cullen Bohannon, as he seeks out the Northern soldiers that murdered his wife.  The show takes on far deeper dimensions as you start to meet those surrounding this huge American venture.  The show has action, suspense, drama and sex.  This one is not to be missed!  We'll fill our time impatiently waiting for season two by watching through this season one blu-ray again and we recommend that you do the same!

    Dark Blue: The Complete Second Season DVD Review



    Synopsis: Season two of Dark Blue continues to thrill as Dylan McDermott stars as Carter Shaw, part of a crack undercover team of police officers so covert, many of their own colleagues are kept in the dark. The strong-willed Carter often pushes the limits of the law in his efforts to bring down bad guys through complex undercover assignments. His team includes Ty (Omari Hardwick), whose commitment to his covers have left him struggling to define the boundaries between work and his home life; Dean (Logan Marshall-Green), a shoot-from-the-hip cop whose activities make his fellow team members wonder which side he's really on; and Jaimie (Nicki Aycox), a green patrol cop brought in for her shady past and excellent skills in lying, who's out to prove that she has what it takes. New to the team this season is Alex Rice (Tricia Helfer, Battlestar Galactica), a sarcastic and ambitious, Berkeley-educated FBI agent brought in to oversee these covert cowboys. But it's Carter she really has her eye on….

    Review: Dark Blue is one of the last good cop dramas on television.  This cable drama is one of the coolest and best written we've seen in a very long time.  The second season of Dark Blue is now available on DVD, only online from wbshop.com (see our link above).  The show has gotten darker and darker with the lines blurred between good and bad and an uncertainty about who is on what side.  This season kept us on the edge of our seats until the finale and its epic conclusion.  Unfortunately, the show wasn't renewed for a third season, so this DVD set represents the final season of this show.  This is your chance to complete the series.

    95 Miles to Go DVD Review



    Synopsis: Ray Romano's eight-day drive through the south on a stand-up comedy tour becomes more than he bargains for when longtime friend and opening act, Tom Caltabiano, brings a film student along to document their thousand-mile journey. Together, all three struggle with Ray's obsessions, phobias, and insecurities in this unscripted exploration of newfound fame.

    Review: Ok, let me preface this review by saying I can't stand Ray Romano. He's whiney and annoying and his show had a great cast..all except him.  So, now you know my bias and you can keep that in mind when reading this.  That aside, this indie film is an ok watch.  It premiered years back on HBO and is finally getting a DVD release.  Its basically a look at the "real-life" obsessions and quirks of Romano on the road.  I found this more tolerable than his actual shows, so I can recommend it, especially if you dig Ray.
