Southland

L.A. is sandy beaches and Bel-Air mansions and flawless bodies. And it’s gangbangers and drug deals gone wrong and apartments crammed with almost as many people as cockroaches. It’s ‘Southland‘, the place where a rookie cop and his savvier, veteran colleagues struggle to make a difference. Here in a 2-Disc Set are all seven Season One Episodes of the gripping, lightning-paced series about the men and women who live their lives – professional and personal – on a jagged edge, taking on criminals, victims and a sprawling city tainted by vice and seething with danger. Buy the ‘Southland’: Complete First Season DVD right here.

MI-5

The newest season of ‘MI-5,’ the widely acclaimed, BAFTA-wining spy drama is armed with spellbinding plots involving deadly terrorists, perilous undercover operations, double agents, and a schism with Russia that reignites Cold War tensions. Harry Pearce (Peter Firth) is of course back, and joining the cast this season is ‘Robin Hood’ star Richard Armitage, who plays Lucas North, a captured MI-5 officer and old friend of Harry’s. Get all eight episodes on a 4-disc set which includes commentary, a behind-the-scenes documentary and much more. Buy the Volume 7 DVD right here.

The Waltons

Honesty. Integrity. Family. Stories of a family’s – and a nation’s – yesteryear continue in six ‘The Walton’s‘ Reunion Movies. Set in the 1940s are A Wedding on Walton’s Mountain (will Erin have a change of heart?), Mothers’ Day on Walton’s Mountain (honoring the person everyone turns to when crises arise) and A Day for Thanks on Walton’s Mountain (with Robert Wightman as John-Boy). Taking place in the 1960s and featuring Richard Thomas as John-Boy are A Walton Thanksgiving Reunion (as a nation mourns the death of JFK), A Walton Wedding (no big-city Manhattan nuptials for John-Boy) and A Walton Easter (Happy 40th, John and Olivia!). Six warm Walton memories are yours to share.
For fans of the family-friendly classic TV series, this 3-disc set features six made for television holiday-themed movies. Buy The Waltons: Movie Collection right here.

You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown

In ‘You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,’ the Peanuts gang perform the various comedy sketches from the original live-action musical.
Charlie Brown’s friends each describe him. Charlie Brown is happy as usual and then his friends say that “You’re a good man, Charlie Brown”. Lucy comes up to Schroeder trying to talk to him about that the two of them should get married(“Schroeder”). Schroeder ignores her, then Lucy says “My Aunt Marion was right, never try to discuss marriage with a musician.” Charlie Brown has never been able to keep a kite in the air and he hopes that the day it would happen would be today, but he had once again failed(“The Kite”). Sally was writing a letter to Ann Flanders about the valentines she gets. Charlie Brown gives Lucy a valentine and screws up and says “This is for you Lucy, Merry Christmas.”
