The Affair and Madam Secretary Complete Series DVD Sets Are Now Available

Affair Madam

TV fans have a few new purchase options on the home video market with some major new releases from Paramount/CBS/Showtime.

First up, there is the complete series DVD set of the Showtime series “The Affair.” The award winning drama series dealt with the affair between a married father (Noah) and a diner waitress (Alison) and the impact it had on their respective marriages (Noah’s wife Helen and Alison’s husband Cole as well as the children both couples had). Of course, there’s more going on than just the affair and characters perspectives as there are plots involving birth, death, character journeys, relationships and a murder investigation in this five season spanning series. The series boasts a deeply talented cast comprised of Dominic West, Ruth Wilson, Maura Tierney, Joshua Jackson, Anna Paquin, and Emily Browning. The complete series set contains numerous featurettes and character profiles. If you already own the first 4 seasons you don’t need to worry as the fifth and final season has been given its own individual DVD release as well.

The 6 season CBS series “Madam Secretary” has also hit home video with a complete series DVD set and, of course, the 10 episode final season DVD release. The topical network political series initially deals with former CIA analyst Elizabeth McCord (played by Tea Leoni) becoming Secretary of State before running for President AND becoming the first female President in the sixth and final season. Extras in the complete series set include everything from commentaries and deleted scenes to featurettes and promos.

On with the list! Continue reading
