The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Seventh Season Blu-ray Review

Reviewed by Jami Ferguson
Socially challenged they remain, but the scientific geniuses of "The Big Bang Theory" always deliver hilarious results. Leonard returns from his North Sea expedition to find that his relationship with Penny involves more beta-testing than he’s ever done in a lab. Howard’s attachment issues with the women in his life in particular and Raj’s social breakthrough with women in general provide more laughs. Bernadette and Amy stand staunchly by the men in their life, even when they’re sitting in marathon role-playing games. Sheldon sees his mom (Laurie Metcalf) in a totally different way, parties with James Earl Jones, establishes a (sort of) bond with his idol Professor Proton (Emmy® winner Bob Newhart) and makes a scientific breakthrough that breaks down before you can say Science Friday. Experience your own humor breakthrough with this 3-disc, 24-episode Season Seven set of TV’s most popular comedy.

Reviewed by Sean Ferguson
Just in time for "Arrow’s" third season on The CW, catch up with the hard-hitting action series as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group releases Arrow: The Complete Second Season on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD. Billionaire archery enthusiast Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) returns for another season in Starling City. Sworn to fight crime and corruption in his city, Oliver (aka the Arrow) – with the help of the tech-savvy Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) and his iron-fisted right hand, John Diggle (David Ramsey), and the occasional, reluctant assistance of former police detective Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) – has been waging a one-man war on crime. But in all wars, there are casualties.  To honor his fallen friend, Tommy Merlyn, and protect the people he loves, Oliver must rededicate himself to his mission and be more than just a vigilante.  He must become a beacon of hope for the city’s most vulnerable…and a weapon of justice against those who prey upon them. 

Churchill’s First World War DVD Review

Reviewed by Allie Schembra
This landmark docu-drama re-examines the darkest hours of one of the 20th century’s most remarkable heroes, combining fascinating re-evaluation of the epic and traumatic experiences of Winston Churchill in the First World War, and his contributions as Britain’s greatest warlord. Disgraced by disasters in the Gallipoli wars, and with his political reputation in tatters, Churchill was all but `finished’. He was also tormented, for he knew that he was one of the very few political leaders opposed to the dreadful one note strategy of endless attrition in Flanders which was `chewing up a whole generation on barbed wire’. His invention of the tank and promotion of air power stemmed from his determination to find another strategy. Illustrating the extraordinary correspondence Churchill sent from the trenches to his wife Clementine, revealing intimate insights into his personal life, as well as life on the front, and with testimony from leading historians and military experts, this is the story of his fall – and his road to redemption.
