Movie critic Bob Richards didn't have a single movie in this week's home entertainment preview -- all the new stuff is from the small screen.
Game of Thrones, The Complete Third Season - HBO Home Entertainment - Not Rated
Season three of the superb, addicting, HBO series Game of Thrones comes to disc with ten episodes on five discs along with commentaries, seven featurettes and deleted scenes. It's My Pick of the Week!
Nurse Jackie, Season Five - Lionsgate - Not Rated
Season Five of the Emmy-winning Showtime series, Nurse Jackie comes to disc with all ten episodes along with commentaries, two featurettes, a gag reel and deleted scenes.
Killing Kennedy - 20th Century Fox - Not Rated
Bill O Reilly wrote the book, Killing Kennedy. This is the National Geographic Channel TV movie based on it starring Rob Lowe, Ginnifer Goodwin and Michelle Trachtenberg. It's a bit melodramatic, but is decent. Extras include an extended version, and three featurettes.
House of Cards - Netflix - Not Rated
For Netflix streaming subscribers, season two of the terrific online series, House of Cards debuted on Valentine's Day. The great part is, all 13 episodes are already there and you can watch one after the other without the need to wait. I have only watched about half of the episodes so far, but season two is every bit as good as season one.
Gentle Ben - CBS Home Video/Paramount - Not Rated
Dennis Weaver and Clint Howard starred in the classic family series Gentle Ben, about a boy and his best friend - a 650 pound bear. The second and final season comes to DVD with 28 episodes on 4 discs.
Battlestar Galactica the Entire Series - Universal - Not Rated
The original 1978 science fiction series, Battlestar Galactica was a landmark and has become a cult series despite it lasting only one year. The series' 17 episodes come on 10 discs along with commentary, deleted scenes and four featurettes.
