Way, way too silly

The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season

Quite good, but a bit repetitious

Television series

Rod Lott
I had no doubt “The Walking Dead” was going to be a smash upon its Halloween premiere on AMC, the cable network that shepherded the rather edgy “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad” to similar critical and commercial heights.

Spy show wants to be sassy, doesn't always deliver

Television series

Only if you're really 'Taken' with Liam Neeson


Rod Lott
In "Unknown," his third at-bat under the Dark Castle Entertainment banner, director Jaume Collet-Serra ("Orphan," "House of Wax") delivers his most accomplished film yet.

Breaking Bad: The Complete Third Season / The Big C: The Complete First Season

Two great buys of two great shows

Television series

Rod Lott
As if you needed more evidence that cable TV has network TV in a now-years-long creative choke hold, the junior and freshman seasons of AMC’s “Breaking Bad” and Showtime’s “The Big C,” respectively, are now on home video.

Sucker Punch

Plenty of kick for an overnight rental


Rod Lott
With "Sucker Punch," few in-betweeners exist. You either like it or you hate it with a fury of a thousand suns.

Warehouse 13: Season Two

Syfy's slyest series

Television series

Rod Lott
Proof Syfy viewers can have great taste: "Warehouse 13" is the cable channel's most successful original series. And it's not totally geeky.
