Desperate Housewives The Complete Eighth and Final Season DVD DVD Release Date: September 25, 2012 Rated: NR (Not Rated) Run Time: 987 minutes Number of discs: 5 Language: English (Dolby Digital 5.1) Subtitles: French, Spanish, English Studio: ABC Studios ASIN: B005Z28M58 Desperate Housewives was the longest running comedy-drama-mystery featuring an ensemble cast of all female leads Teri Hatcher (Susan Mayer), Felicity Huffman (Lynette Scavo), Marcia Cross (Bree Van de Kamp), Eva Longoria (Gabrielle Solis), and Brenda Strong (deceased Mary Alice Young).

Once Upon A Time: The Complete First Season DVD Review

Once Upon A Time: the Complete First Season DVD Release Date: August 28, 2012 Rated: PG (Parental Guidance Suggested) Run Time: 946 minutes Number of discs: 5 Language: English (Dolby Digital 5.1) Subtitles: French, Spanish Studio: ABC ASIN: B0058YPL66 In case you believe fairy tales are meant only for children, please remember that they were originally told by word of mouth many centuries ago as cautionary tales for adults.  They often coupled pain, suffering, and unhappy events with fantastic transformations.

Body of Proof: Complete Second Season DVD Review

I’m glad ABC made use of her talents and cast her as medical examiner Dr. Megan Hunt in the series Body Of Proof.  She comes through as smart, independent, pensive, and complex.   Boy, do the […]

Committed to another show by then, its promo was not enough to change my viewing habits. Still I was curious as to what tales it would tell. So when I was offered an opportunity to review its first season, I quickly accepted. Is it any wonder that television would create the series Scandal given that political scandals have played out center […]
