Headsup: Superheroes and the Super Rich

Disclaimer: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment requests we note that it provided a free copy of Supergirl: The Complete Thirteenth Season and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Third Season.  The opinions I share are my own.

Supergirl Season Three“In Season Three [of Supergirl], Kara Danvers grapples with the sacrifices she’s made personally while saving National City as Supergirl.  She even considers covering up her human identity altogether. Being human and vulnerable is hard. Maybe she’s better off embracing her alien DNA and only being the “Girl of Steel.” As Kara struggles with her path forward, she continues to work with Hank Henshaw and her sister, Alex, at the Department of Extranormal Operations to battle all threats to National City, including new villains Morgan Edge, and the “Worldkiller,” known as Reign.  Everything Kara’s ever known and everyone she’s ever loved will be tested…” — from Warner Brothers

Now out on Blu-ray and DVD is Supergirl: The Complete Third Season, which includes all twenty-six episodes of Season Three along with multiple bonus features.  In addition to all four DC Super Hero crossover episodes with Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and The Flash, extras include three featurettes (“Inside the Crossover: Crisis on Earth X”, “She Will Reign!”, and “The Best of DC TV’s Comic-Con Panels San Diego 2017”), deleted scenes, and a gag reel. You can grab both the DVD and the Blu-ray on Amazon for $28.95 and $32.99, respectively.

Dynasty Season One (2017)“Wealth, power, deception, and double-dealing… what does it take to build a dynasty? A modern re-imagining of the iconic primetime soap Dynasty, centering on the powerful Carrington family as they defend their throne against the Colbys, new rivals and threats, and even each other. Fallon Carrington (Elizabeth Gillies, “Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll”) is charismatic, cunning and poised to become the new COO of her father’s global energy empire – or so she thinks. When her father, Blake Carrington, (Grant Show, “Melrose Place”) summons Fallon and her brother, Steven (James Mackay, “The Leftovers”), home to the family compound in Atlanta, Fallon is horrified to learn that it’s to make the acquaintance of stepmother-to-be, Cristal (Nathalie Kelley, “The Vampire Diaries”). Cristal is stunning, but she isn’t just some flimsy gold-digger to be scared off. However, the wealth and privilege of the Carringtons’ world proves challenging to her, as she clashes with the staff, including Blake’s butler, Anders (Alan Dale, “The O.C.”), as well as Fallon, who all make it very clear Cristal doesn’t belong.” — from CBS

Now available on DVD is Dynasty: Season One, which features all twenty-two episodes of the reboot’s premiere season along with deleted scenes and a gag reel.  This one rather misses the mark when it comes to bonus features, especially considering all the fodder they would have had for extras (such as featurettes on the show’s fashion, the filming locations, transitioning the storyline from America in the 80s to that of our new millennium reality, commentary from the creators and cast members from the original series like Joan Collins, etc.), but there you have it.  With no bonus features and the DVD priced at $27.49 on Amazon, this may be a good time to think about opting for the digital version available on iTunes for $19.99.

DCs Legends of Tomorrow Season Three“Will DC’s Legends of Tomorrow be remembered for saving the world? Or for breaking time? By revisiting a moment in history, the Legends fractured their timeline, scattering people, animals, and objects across time. Now the misfit team must reunite in order to fix what they broke. Join Sara Lance, Ray Palmer, Nate Heywood, Amaya Jiwe (aka Vixen), Professor Martin Stein, Jefferson “Jax” Jackson, and new recruit and hacker from the future Zari Tomaz as they jump into action aboard the Waverider. Bucking the authority of Rip Hunter and his Time Bureau, the Legends travel to times past and future in order to return the anachronisms to their original timelines. Will they achieve their mission before the time stream falls apart?” — from CBS

Fans will be glad to know that DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Third Season has hit the shelves, including all twenty-one episodes of Season Three along with the four DC Super Hero crossover episodes with Arrow, Supergirl, and The Flash. The list of bonus features shares two extras from the Supergirl Season 3 release (“Inside the Crossover: Crisis on Earth X” and “The Best of DC TV’s Comic-Con Panels San Diego 2017”) along with two other featurettes (“The Time Calibrators: Legends Assemble!” and “Post Production Theater”), unaired scenes, and a gag reel. You can snag the DVD on Amazon for $19.99 and the Blu-ray for $27.99.

The Beverly Hillbillies Season Five“Join in the fun with the Clampett family as they rub elbows with the rich and famous in Beverly Hills — Jed (Buddy Ebsen) fights to defend his fortune from con artists, Granny (Irene Ryan) clashes with her neighbors and the city government while trying to find Elly May (Donna Douglas) a blue-blooded suitor, and Jethro (Max Baer, Jr.) seeks to put his sixth grade education to work in the uproarious fifth season of The Beverly Hillbillies.” — from CBS

There are zero bonus features on this release of The Beverly Hillbillies: The Official Fifth Season, but with all thirty episodes digitally remastered (and guest stars including John Wayne, Gloria Swanson, Robert Strauss, and Ted Cassidy), mega-fans who might be missing it from their library (or wish to update another hard copy version of Season Five) will want to at least consider it.  If that group includes you, you can check out the DVD on Amazon for $20.59.
