ABC Studios is coming out with a slew of television DVD releases once fall approaches, and the pack of offerings run the complete gamut of reaction possibilities. From your favorite shows, to television's biggest "oh my God, that's still on" titles, to "Woops, there goes that show," it's all coming for your viewing and owning pleasure.
Of course, all of these shows have their fans, and ABC has put together nice packages on their previous releases, and these are no different.
Whether you love or hate the shows, they are at least upping the game a bit on DVD release bonus features. I suppose it's becoming mandatory as audiences demand it, and DVD sales (apparently) are slipping in general, but I find that TV shows feel like they are lacking without them even more than films. Something about the long-term investment, fan status, and apparent ease of creation, I suppose. »

Consider James Denton (luckily!) dogged by Lois Lane. Not only does he call Lois & Clark‘s Teri Hatcher “wife” on ABC’s Desperate Housewives (Sundays at 9/8c), but he suits up as the Man of Steel himself in All-Star Superman, the latest in Warner Home Video’s series of DC Universe animated movies, on sale Tuesday.
TVLine spoke with Denton about his maiden flight as Supes and working with one of the series’ most vivacious Lois Lanes — Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks. He also shares a peek at a funny-slash-sexy Housewives twist, and previews how a surprise savior will keep Mike from losing Susan forever. »

Paul enlisted the help of his mortal enemy Feb. 13 to find out who tried to kill him. As it turns out, the answer was… kind of obvious.
It was Zach (Cody Kasch), okay? Zach Young shot his daddy (Mark Moses) point blank after last winter’s big riot. I’m sorry to come to right out and say it without a big “spoiler alert,” but wasn’t it obvious at this point? It was even obvious to Paul, who asked Mike (James Denton) to track down his biological drug-addict son personally. But maybe Mike should have been paying less attention to Zach and more attention to his wife…
Susan (Teri Hatcher) got a kidney this week… and a stalker! She bumped into an old ‘friend’ from high school, Monroe, who suspiciously decided to donate his kidney to her cause. As it turned out, this ‘friend’ has been carrying a torch »

Despite having only several titles released this week in our beloved genre, some of them are deemed very worthy of our hard-earned dollars.

Let Me In (Blu-ray Review)
The ladies of the lane squawked accusations on the Jan. 9 episode, but the final moments revealed yet another suspect.
Vanessa Williams‘ face sums up my feelings about this week’s Desperate Housewives. While most of the hour felt like empty calories, the main course proved juicy enough to keep us hungry for answers! Stop reading now if you don’t feel like being spoiled, because I’m about to discuss this week’s bomb-shell appearance by…
Zach Young (Cody Kasch!) Yes, Mike’s son is back on the lane — and he stirred up some serious drama at Bree’s (Marcia Cross) house when he posed as a flower delivery man. By planting a gun under Beth’s (Emily Bergl) seat, he set of a bitch-fest of The View proportions. Beth’s really bad at making friends.
Now, let’s talk about all that other filling:
Remember when Gaby (Eva Longoria »
Here are a few clips from the January 9th, 9pm Est episode of Desperate Housewives "Where Do I Belong".
"Where Do I Belong" - While Susan continues to undergo dialysis, she is stunned when her flighty mother, Sophie (Lesley Ann Warren), along with her Aunt Claire (Valerie Harper), pays a visit but won't agree to get tested to see if she would be a potential kidney donor candidate. Meanwhile, not knowing where biological daughter Grace is causes Gaby to turn her feelings of loss into an obsession; Lynette exacts revenge on Tom after she learns about his past with Renee, and Bree tries to befriend a friendless Beth Young, on "Desperate Housewives," Sunday, January 9 (9:00-10:01 p.m., Et) on the ABC Television Network.

In last episode's crazy riot, a few of our main characters were hurt pretty badly. But, it seems the "Desperate Housewives" producers have moved on from the incident to the last big event before the winter hiatus: Paul Young's (Mark Moses) shooting.
Otherwise, the producers have finally given Susan (Teri Hatcher) a storyline other than "Oops, did I do that?" After being trampled in the riot, she lost her one good kidney. The other one isn't working too well and until she can get a transplant, she'll be on dialysis.
Even more interesting is Gaby's (Eva Longoria) descent into crazy as Carlos (Ricardo Chavira) forces her to let go of all things "Grace," so that Juanita (Madison De La Garza) gets over her displacement issues. We cannot wait to see how far off the deep end Gaby goes. The "Grace" doll has to be the start of something craptastic. »
