Togetherness: The Complete First Season (DVD)

The Duplass Brothers have turned in some of the most impressive dark indie comedies of the past decade (The Skelton Twins, Safety Not Guaranteed), but it wasn’t a given that their thoughtful, subtle humor would translate to TV. Turns out it does. With Togetherness, the writer/director/producer/actor sibling team has turned in a remarkably fresh half-hour comedy for Generation X and beyond.

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series – The Complete Season Two (DVD)

Robert Rodriguez has made a career out of gory, DIY movie fun, taking B-Grade camera tricks and actors and creating hard-to-look-away stories. He’s managed to do the same thing on TV with the adaption of his From Dusk Till Dawn movie. In the second season, the morally-questionable bank robbing brothers Seth and Richie have split up, but are each still dealing with vampires south of the border.

The Jam – About the Young Idea (Eagle Vision)

There are some groups that despite universal appeal still seem very much like they belong solely to England and the rest of the world is just borrowing them for a while. The Rolling Stones felt like they belonged to everyone; same with the Beatles. The Who, though they sold well across the globe, seemed very much like a UK-centric band. The same goes for groups like Blur, Suede and The…

True Detective: Season 2 (DVD)

While it’s true that the second season of the Nic Pizzolatto-helmed crime noir True Detective never came close to living up to the expectations of the first season, it’s a tad unfair to compare the two.  The first season was groundbreaking TV and a pop culture moment (the pairing of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson was simply inspired), but the follow up was a pretty decent effort as well.

Three seasons in, this Liv Schreiber led Showtime drama continues to ratchet up the darkness and in doing so is hitting its stride. Schreiber, playing the title character, is still the go-to- fix it man in Hollywood everything from breaking legs to getting rid of bodies, but with his mentor and boss dying, he finds himself conflicted forced to work with a rich football agent (played brilliantly by Katie Holmes)…
