Alfred Hitchcock: A Legacy of Suspense

How's 29 hours of Hitch suit you?


Thriller

Rod Lott
Alfred Hitchcock's early films are no stranger to bargain-priced box sets of DVDs, but not usually all in one place. Or almost in one place.

Man from Atlantis: The Complete TV Movies Collection / The Complete Television Series

Before ‘Dallas,’ Patrick Duffy made a splash as a waterlogged wonder.


Television series

Rod Lott
Being all of 6 years old during its brief run on the tube, I have only vague memories of “Man from Atlantis,” Patrick Duffy’s pre-“Dallas” TV series that has become a sci-fi cult hit ever since.

'Community' collage

‘Maybe BNL has two Billboard awards to your zero.’

One of the scant few sitcoms worth watching, “Community” is about to start its third season on NBC, but its second hits DVD next Tuesday.

We’ll have a review of the four-disc set sooner rather than later, but for now, feast on these choice clips. I point you in particular to the first, in which a diss of the group Barenaked Ladies sparks a “oh, no he di’n’t” pile-on. If I had a million dollars, I’d put this on that screen in Times Square.  —Rod Lott

Police Story: Season One

The arresting ’70s crime classic was worth the wait.


Television series

Rod Lott
Far too young to catch it when it debuted in 1973, I’ve literally waited decades to set my eyes on “Police Story,” the NBC anthology series that broke the mold for cops on the tube by adding realism. Reading creator Joseph Wambaugh’s recent episodic novels about Hollywood cops only strengthened my thirst.

Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop

How bitter Coco tastes.


Documentary

Phil Bacharach
Last year’s debacle over “The Tonight Show” didn’t quite reach Shakespearean proportions, but you sure couldn’t tell it at the time. When Jay Leno left the hallowed television franchise for a stab at prime time, NBC gave the coveted late-night slot to Conan O’Brien, who had been patiently waiting in the late-late-night wings.

If the name Eliot Ness doesn’t ring a bell, he’s the lawman played by Kevin Costner in The Untouchables who made a name for himself bringing down gangster Al Capone.
