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.

Star Wars Is Now Available On 4K!

SW

The home video event of the year has arrived. Prior to this week only “Solo: A Star Wars Story” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” were available on 4K. Now, all 11 Star Wars films are finally available on 4K. Fans have a couple of options in how to purchase the films. Best Buy is currently offering up a massive box set that contains the entire Skywalker Saga for $249.99. The contents include “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace,” “Star Wars: Attack of the Clones,” “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith,” “Star Wars: A New Hope,” “Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back,” “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” and “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.” Unfortunately, “Rogue One: A Star Wars: Story” and “Solo: A Star Wars Story” are not included in the set and would need to be purchased separately. Outside of the box set, you can purchase each of the 11 films individually. Alas, the original trilogy titles only includes the special edition versions and not the original cuts. Additionally, it should be noted that the box set contains a 3 disc version of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” This set doesn’t contain any new extras that haven’t been available before, it’s just a new reissue. At some point, this 3 disc set will be released on its own as well. Currently each individual title is going for $29.99 or more.

“Piercing” hits Blu-ray and DVD March 12, 2019!

Piercing

Based on the novel by Ryū Murakami, “Piercing” is a horror-mystery film that had been written for the screen and directed by Nicolas Pesce. The story involves a depraved family/business man, a prostitute, and a murderous plot. I’m sure there is bound to be a few twists along the way as well. The movie stars Mia Wasikowska and Christopher Abbott.

“Piercing” is being released by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment on Blu-ray and DVD on March 12, 2019.

Below I have listed my personal list of the 10 most anticipated fall and winter films of 2018 in no particular order. On with the list! Continue reading

Doctor Who- The Daemons DVD  Doctor Who- The Time of the Doctor Blu-ray Doctor Who- Death To The Daleks DVD
