Dana Delany is back as Dr. Megan Hunt, the brilliant Philadelphia medical examiner, in ‘Body of Proof: The Complete Second Season’. Follow Dr. Hunt as she helps solve crimes in the city, using her expertise that no one else around her has. The show has been a huge success for ABC, even after middling ratings its first season. But the show gained a following in its second season and has managed to become another solid show in ABC’s prime time slot. So I’m sure fans of the series will be excited to see that ‘Body of Proof’ is coming home September 18, in this complete second season DVD box set.
Grey’s Anatomy Season 8 begins with the residents return for their first day of fifth year. This year will make or break their career. Some will persevere, some will leap and bound over the others, but one, one will surprise you when this doctor fails the boards. I was surprised by the failure of one of the residents and I’m left wondering, in Grey’s fashion, what the future of the doctor holds.
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though. Season 8 doesn’t disappoint. We begin the journey with the fallout from Meredith tampering with Derek’s clinical trial. Chief Webber keeps his promise to Ellis and watches over her little girl, much to everyone’s shock and anger. Karev must redeem himself, somehow, for outing Meredith, the most universally liked person in the whole hospital. The biggest question is: Will Meredith and Derek be granted custody of Zola?
Bailey must decide whether to ditch Nurse Eli for the Romancy Ben and later is served with a crossword puzzle of a lifetime. After completely fumbling her love’s gesture, she dons a trench coat to appease Mr. Ben. The scenes between these two are always a delight. Bailey is one of my favorite characters and seeing her vulnerable side with Ben gives me the warm fuzzies and usually a bought of giggles. It’s autonomic. I can’t help myself.
In a day in age where day time soap operas sadly seem to be a fading fad, fans must find a way to get their dose of backstabbing, betrayal, and drama. Thankfully for them, ABC has created ‘Revenge’, a show that will fall right into line with those day time soaps they love. But it isn’t just soap fans who will be won over by ‘Revenge’. As it turns out, this slick thriller of a show managed to win me over. With its intricate mystery, fun thrills, and very well written stories, this show managed to really win me over. I’m not one for prime time soaps, but this one really works for me. I resisted for a while, but when I received the first season to review, I sat down to watch it and was instantly drawn into this world of, well, quite simply, revenge. This is easily one of the better shows of the new season, and it’s clear to see why it’s such a hit. Fans of the show will be happy to know that, just like the show, this DVD set of ‘The Complete First Season’ doesn’t disappoint.
