Blu-Ray News: Robin of Sherwood: Set 1 Blu-Ray Edition

Robin of Sherwood: Set 1 Blu-ray Edition

Robin of Sherwood is a 1980’s British series starring Michael Praed as Robin of Loxley, Ray Winstone as Will Scarlet, and Nickolas Grace as the Sheriff of Nottingham. The series is very dated, from Praed’s shag haircut to the synthesizer background music. But the Irish band Clannad’s frequent contributions are fantastic. The 2-part pilot episode introduces the audience to Robin and his merry men, with a fairly traditional telling of the legend. This series combines the popular tale of Robin Hood with magic, myth, and plenty of swashbuckling action.

On June 7, 2011, all 13 episodes from seasons 1 and 2 of the series will be released on Blu-ray for the first time. There are over 8 hours of special features including: commentaries, featurettes, behind-the-scenes documentary, outtakes, photo galleries, a 40-page booklet, and scripts from the show.

Chuck The Complete Third Season

Chuck: The Complete Third Season

Zachary Levi returns as the government’s geekiest spy in the third season of Chuck. Chuck Bartowski was a simple Buy More computer expert, part of the “Nerd Herd”, who accidentally uploaded the latest Intersect 2.0 to his brain. Now, Chuck doesn’t just know things, he has access to every kind of combat skill as well as other convenient skills. Chuck now as the potential to be a real spy. With the help of his handlers, Sarah and Casey, Chuck may have a chance. But Chuck’s big heart may be holding him back from being the detached agent that the government wants him to be.

Chuck and cast are back for another season of danger and suspense, and always plenty of laughs. The cast is solid. And the characters keep growing and developing. Just when I thought the show was getting stagnate, they upgrade Chuck to 2.0, giving the show a fresh new spin. I love the direction this latest season has gone. I hope the momentum continues. With a slew of fantastic special guest stars, this may be the best season yet.
