FOX Action: Now on DVD and TV

Have you been missing Christopher Chance, really excited about this week’s premiere of Human Target, well, you will have to wait a little longer. Due to Tuesday’s sad cancellation of Lone Star, FOX has opted to pull Lie to Me (which was scheduled to debut November 10th) to Mondays at 9/8c starting next week, and pull Human Target from the death that is Fridays up to Wednesday which means waiting till after baseball on November 17th.

While I should be happy that this means more eyes for a premiere that is wonderfully action-packed, it does mean we have to wait a bit longer. Thankfully, the first season of Human Target, which stars Mark Valley, Chi McBride, and Jackie Earle Haley, as a group of bodyguards that go way above and beyond the call, is now on DVD thanks to the wonderful people over at the WB. The set includes all 13 episodes, plus some commentaries, and behind the scenes features. I was a late adopter to this series, but I am glad I found out about its great action and intrigue. You can purchase the DVD anywhere or here at the WBShop.

But FOX Fridays are not without some action, The Good Guys, continues to air at 9/8c on the night. The Good Guys, premiered this summer to modest numbers, the series stars Bradley Whitford and Colin Hanks, as low-level detectives that get stuck on mundane jobs that seem to always have a bigger story. Created by Matt Nix, the show is more humor than anything, and that over the top stuff sometimes makes me laugh or cringe. In this week’s episode, co-star Jenny Wade gets to step out of the ADA office and gets to do some fun stuff including romance some villains. This may or may not be your cup-of-tea but there really isn’t anything else on to stop you from tuning in, is there?

Fringe: The Complete Second Season – Some Sci-fi plays it safe, some goes all the way, and in FOX’s Fringe, the second season meant taking the viewer’s expectations of their world, and throwing that across universes.

Modern Family: The Complete First Season This is a MUST-HAVE. The best new show of the last year, has a fun DVD release with making-of specials on the finale and the powerful Hawaii episode, plus fun specials with the cast, and a HI-larious gag reel. Each of the 22 episodes is so great, you must check this out on Tuesday!

Glee: The Complete First Season Are you a Gleek? I was once, and after the long hiatus, it just has worn of me. All the season 1 episodes are included on the set and I really have no need to go back and if you purchased the first half on DVD, most of the bonus features are the same including casting specials and more.
