Batman: The Television Series -- The Second Season, Part One Some great TV shows have made their way onto DVD recently including: Batman: The Television Series -- The Second Season, Part One - This show is a pop art mix of chapter serial thrills, broad-yet-straightfaced satire, goofball slapstick, and a surreal, hyper tone of comic book fantasy; Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons - The Complete Series - disarmingly charming and impressively elaborate puppet series produced by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson in their emblematic "Supermarionation" process; and Gunsmoke: The Eleventh Season - Volume Two - these 16 black-and-white episodes are another terrific round of great Western drama. Want more?  Check out all of the TV on DVD reviews in the DVD Talk database.

To Sir, With Love This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: To Sir, With Love - Sidney Poitier takes control of a class of unruly students and improves their lives, by demanding respect and in return offering his good will, good advice, and excellent example; The Prowler - Scheming cop Van Heflin cheats, lies and murders his way toward a life where he can "make money while he sleeps" -- all he has to do is seduce an unhappy wife (Evelyn Keyes) and get her radio-personality husband out of the way; and The Sure Thing - Rob Reiner's first light comedy teams a young John Cusack and the charming Daphne Zuniga for a dumb but diverting college break/road trip. Not bad but awfully inconsistent. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.

The Bridge Some great discs are being released this week. Check out these new movies: The Bridge [review] - a highly disturbing, intensely moving documentary about suicide and mental illness; Blacula / Scream Blacula Scream [review] - This pair of 70's blaxploitation vampire films are strange and ridiculous and stupid and clever and terrible and wonderful, and finally on Blu-ray; and Exterminators Of The Year 3000 [review] - a "so bad it's good" film, Shout Factory's Blu-ray serves up a perfectly capable A/V presentation and a few minor but thoughtful supplements. Be sure to check out our DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

The Theory of Everything Some cool discs have been reviewed over the past week. Check out these recent entries: The Theory of Everything - this docudrama based on the true life story of Stephen and Jane Hawking tells an important story and is highlighted by some impressive production elements and extraordinary performances; Love and Death - forty years after its initial release, this Woody Allen film remains a highly rewatchable, brilliantly polished comedy gem; and The Marcel Perez Collection - a colllection a ten incredible and funny shorts by a forgotten silent film comedian that fans of early cinema should seek out. Other recent reviews include: The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, The RKO Brown & Carney Comedy Collection (The Adventures of a Rookie / Rookies in Burma / Girl Rush / Genius at Work), and Video Nasties - The Definitive Guide: Part 2.  Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Nurse Jackie - Season Six Interested in the latest TV on DVD reviews? DVD Talk has you covered! This week's notable entries include: Nurse Jackie - Season Six - the program hasn't lost a bit of a punch, and like its titular character, drug addict and acerbic nurse Jackie Peyton (Edie Falco), the show is full of ballsy surprises and stronger than ever; Friends With Better Lives: The Complete Series - an enjoyable series with witty writing, solid characters, and an excellent cast; and Olive Kitteridge - this riveting and sensitively done drama offers a quirky, beautifully acted portrait of a manic-depressive family. Other shows recently reviewed include:  Fairy Tail: Collection Three, A Certain Scientific Railgun: Season 1, and Ben-To: Complete Series.  Want more?  Check out all of the TV on DVD reviews in the DVD Talk database.

The St. Valentine's Day Massacre This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: The St. Valentine's Day Massacre - Roger Corman's semi-doc approach to Al Capone's wipeout of the Bugs Moran outfit... Jason Robards doesn't look like Scarface but works up a righteous fury when killing men with razors and baseball bats; The Night They Raided Minsky's - Jason Robards and Norman Wisdom are Burlesque comics out to bed Britt Eklund, a virginal Amish girl who dances stories from the Bible; and Syncopation - This musical history of jazz is racially integrated, but its good intentions go only so far -- the music is great and the sentiment honest, but it's still a movie about black music told mostly from the viewpoint of white leads Bonita Granville and Jackie Cooper. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.

Big Hero 6 There are a few new releases this week that you won't want to miss. Check out these hot titles: Big Hero 6 [review] - a thrilling superhero adventure with plenty of genuine emotion and humor... the animation is beautiful, the action is exciting and the film never panders; Frank Darabont Collection [review] - a trio of great films directed by the three-time Oscar nominee on Blu-ray: The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, and The Majestic; and Watership Down: Criterion Collection [review] - a dark, disturbing, and essential slice of animation that's aged perfectly well during the last 37 years. Other reviews of note include: New Year's Evil [review], Black Sunday [review], and 52 Pick-Up [review].
