DVD set to grab

Season two of  Happy Endings comes out on DVD  October 2n (and October 23rd, new episodes begin airing on ABC).  Right now you can grab season one on DVD and we suggest you grab it at Target.

Online, it's $12.99 but two readers wrote in to say that they grabbed it for $11.99 at actual Target stores.  It's a funny show but for 13 episodes on two discs, the thirty dollar list price always seemed more than a bit high.


In addition to the 13 episodes, what do you get?

Some promotion featurettes about the cast, an interview with Adam Pally and Casey Wilson, a parody theme song, some outtakes and some deleted scenes.

The deleted scenes should inspire a lot of debate.  For example, watching them, we all agreed that the whole how Bo got to Alex and Dave's wedding sequence (walking out on his job, getting stuck in traffic and skating to the church) wasn't necessary.  Had it been included, people would have assumed Bo was a regular character and waited all episode for his return.  However, we're split on the scene where Penny frets over being a ma'am to Jane while Alex drops a line about how awful her solo honeymoon was.   We agree Andrea agreeing to sex after a movie with Dave should have been included because it provided another (needed) example of Dave attempting to break up with her.  You might agree with our calls, you might not.  Watch and see for yourself.

But this is hilarious sitcom and a ground breaking one (see Ava and C.I.'s "TV: Exploding a stereotype").  You'll watch the episodes repeatedly.  Stars: Eliza Coupe, Elisha Cuthbert, Zachary Knighton, Adam Pally, Damon Wayans Jr. and Casey Wilson.

And what of Blu-Ray?  Oh, please.  They're the laser discs of this decade.  The new format will be stored on Cloud or stored on a chip or something we haven't heard of yet.  Blu-Ray?  It's just another way to milk the consumer to pay all over again for a 'deluxe' edition of Die Hard.
