Headsup: Chasing Bad Guys

Out now are multiple titles about those who hunt down criminals, all with their own particular style:

Hawaii Five-0 Season Seven DVDFirst up is Hawaii Five-0, a new spin on the vintage series about an elite task force charged with solving crimes that take place on the idyllic sunny islands.  Former navy man Detective Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) leads the team, following only his own rules and operating with full authority to hunt down the islands’ worst criminals and bring them to justice.  Working alongside McGarrett are Detective Danny (“Danno”) Williams, Chin Ho Kelly, coroner Dr. Max Bergman, beautiful Hawaiian native Kono Kalakaua, and former SWAT team leader Captain Lou Grover.  In Season Seven, the team must deal with some of their most dangerous cases yet as they hunt down the chess-piece killer, attempt to protect a witness in a coma from being assassinated, rescue Chin’s niece from a cartel, breaking down a sex trafficking ring, and more.  Guest stars on the season include Hawaii Five-0 veteran Jack Lord along with Claire Forlani, Darius Rucker, Julie Benz, Jimmy Buffett, and Christine Lahti.  Out now is Hawaii Five-0: The Seventh Season, which includes all twenty-five episodes of Season Seven along with some bonus content.  Featurettes on the set include “Shorelines: Season Seven” (action sequences and season highlights with the cast and crew), “The Chun Family Legacy” (actor Dennis Chun talks about continuing his father Kam Fong Chun’s Hawaii Five-o legacy), and “Tailor Grubbs Video Diary” (a peek at the video diary of youngest cast member Tailor Grubbs).  Along with the featurettes are coverage of a magazine photo shoot with star Alex O’Louhlin, some deleted and extended scenes, and a gag reel.  The complete season is available on Amazon on DVD for $29.99, or you can get the season digitally on Amazon or iTunes for $34.99. It’s important to note that not only do the streaming options cost $5 more, but bonus content on those is limited to one 2-minute featurette (“You Ask, They Tell: Grace Park”), so if you’re looking to get the most bang for your buck, getting the DVD is definitely the way to go on this one.

Headsup: Justice

 

Out now are three titles that follow the men and women who fight to keep the law and justice systems of America running:

 

Bull Season OneFirst we have Bull, the courtroom drama inspired by the early career of now-famous-talk-show-host Dr. Phil McGraw when he was the head of a trial consulting firm.  The title character Dr. Jason Bull (played by Michael Weatherly) is an ingenious and highly intuitive examiner of human nature who has expanded his own natural and learned skills into a prestigious firm of experts (the Trial Analysis Corporation).  Sometimes for a good cause and sometimes for the right price, Dr. Bull and his team craft defense narratives specific to the most minute detail in order to sway the jury, largely based on biofeedback from “mirror jurors” they recruit to give them the inside track on the mental state of the jury at any given time.  Along with Dr. Bull, the team of experts include lawyer Benny Colón (played by Freddy Rodriguez), neurolinguistics expert Marissa Morgan (played by Geneva Carr), former NYPD detective Danny James (played by Jaime Lee Kirchner), hacker Cable McCrory (played by Annabelle Attanasio), and former-football-star-turned-fashion-stylist Chunk Palmer (played by Chris Jackson).

Bull: Season One is now out on DVD, which includes all twenty-two episodes of the premiere season as well as close to an hour of special features, including “Michael Weatherly: No Bull” (an interview where Weatherly, who also co-produced the show, speaks about the fun and challenges of getting the series off the ground for its first season), “The Verdict: Bull Season One” (a featurette that goes behind the scenes of the show with Weatherly and some other cast members along with executive producers Paul Attanasio and Dr. Phil McGraw), “See You In Court” (a tour of the courtroom sets featured on the show led by Production Designer Sarah Frank), and a gag reel. You can currently get the DVD on Amazon for $29.87 or for twelve cents more can get it streaming on Amazon or iTunes (with no bonus features besides a two-minute “First Look” promo) for $29.99.  So unless you really don’t want it in hard copy, I’d say definitely go for the DVD on this one.

Your Weekend Justice #100: We Shave the Turkey and Stroke the Bacon

It’s Weekend Justice: hitting its 100th episode. We recorded this mostly live with a number of horrible, disfiguring technical difficulties and a very patient Ustream audience, who we all love dearly. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.
