The Mentalist

A team of the Californian Bureau of Investigation (CBI) may officially be led by haughty agent Lisbon. However, her mediocre intelligence and methods by the book are no match for ‘Mentalist‘ Patrick Jane (Simon Baker). Formally, the ex-medium-hustler is just a police consultant. In fact the detectives soon learn to look to him for ever brilliant and surprising observations, deductions, ploys and traps. No criminal ever outsmarts Jane – except perhaps Red John, who unwillingly motivated Patrick to start fighting crime. Buy the Season 1 DVD set of the smash hit CBS series right here.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Based on the phenomenally popular Terminator movie franchise, the Fox network’s ‘Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles‘ picked up the action where the second of the three films, “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” left off. The series stars Lena Headey and Thomas Dekker, and season two featured memorable guest appearances by Brian Austin Green and Shirley Manson.

30 Rock

After a slow start, ’30 Rock’ finally hit its tonal stride in the third season. Fey and her team found figured out how to balance their brand of satire, lightening-quick dialogue wit, and ridiculous farce in turn penning some of the funniest episodes in the show’s brief history. The industry must because the third season just won the “Best Comedy” Emmy. Memorable episodes to watch: “Reunion,” The Fun Cooker” and “The One with the Cast of Night Court.” There are also a ton of funny episode commentaries, deleted scenes, a table read of the season finale, and the making of ‘He Needs a Kidney’ (not a favorite episode of the season, actually).
