Jake And The Neverland Pirates: Jake Saves Bucky comes out on DVD + Digital Copy on October 16. If you missed the premier on Disney Chanel in September, you don’t want to miss this DVD! Recently, I was given a copy to review and I chose to watch it with my 3-year-old son, who is a huge Jake fan! As I suspected, we weren’t disappointed. We got our family room set up with pillows, drinks, popcorn and the inflatable “Jake sword” that came with the DVD. We both enjoyed the entire movie and my son has since enjoyed watching the additional episodes on my iPhone!
The movie begins with the Neverland Pirate Code which says Jake must race his Pirate ship, Bucky, against Captain Hook’s ship, The Jolly Roger. The catch is if Bucky loses, he belongs to Captain Hook… forever. After Hook cheats his way through the race and wins, Jake and his friends find out there is a way they can get Bucky back. Peter Pan joins in the fun and eventually helps Jake win Bucky back!
After eight years, and one hundred and eighty episodes, the Sunday night staple, ‘Desperate Housewives’, came to an end. The series, starring Eva Longoria, Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, and Marcia Cross had gained quite a following over the years, as fans watched Gabrielle, Susan, Lynette, and Bree go through many misadventures on Wisteria Lane, falling in and out of love, getting caught in murder mysteries, and so much more. So of course, fans were going to be sad when it all came to and end. Thankfully though, it wasn’t the end. Disney has given the series a proper send off with ‘Desperate Housewives: The Complete Eighth and Final Season’ on DVD, for fans to relive the last season of their show over and over again.
Dana Delany is back, and better than ever, as Dr. Megan Hunt, a Philadelphia medical examiner who solves many of the toughest crimes thrown her way, in ‘Body of Proof: The Complete Second Season’. The show, now in its second season, has become one of ABC’s flagship shows, gaining quite a following. I watched the show on and off in its first season, but watched constantly during its second. The show really found its footing, and I can see why fans love it. It’s a well written, superbly acted show that brings some of the best procedural storytelling to TV every week. So I’m glad to see that Disney has treated the show very well on this ‘Complete Second Season’ DVD. Featuring a bunch of special features, and all twenty episodes of the second season, this is one fans of the show will be very pleased with.
Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic return once more as Richard Castle and Kate Beckett, and they’re better than ever, in ‘Castle: The Complete Fourth Season’. Very few shows are as fun and exciting as ‘Castle’, and I’m definitely happy to see that the show, going into its fourth season, is the strongest yet. For those unfamiliar with the show, ‘Castle’ follows crime novelist Richard Castle who shadows New York Detective Kate Beckett, who is the muse for Castle’s crime novel heroine Nikki Heat. Together, they are the ultimate crime solving duo, and they solve some of the most intensive cases the NYPD land. It’s the perfect mix of crime, comedy, and fun that many TV fans have fallen in love with, making it one of the staples of ABC’s prime time schedule. So of course, Disney wants to treat one of its best shows well on DVD, and they’ve delivered an excellent set here with “Castle: The Complete Fourth Season”.
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.
