Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Though the small screen retains an unfair reputation as a lesser medium — think of all the snobby types who’ll brag about not owning a television, but would never be so dismissive about books or movies — the truth is that the medium varies as much as any other. Today’s TV Bits runs the gamut from highbrow (a literary adaptation on HBO) to lowbrow (a modeling industry reality show on The CW), with plenty of stuff in between. After the jump:

  • Noah Baumbach’s Jonathan Franzen adaptation The Corrections is a go at HBO
  • HBO will offer an early look at its highly anticipated Luck next month
  • Fox puts new eps of Alcatraz on hold while it goes back for reshoots
  • Burt Reynolds signs on to guest star on FX’s Archer

This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s.

Buy It

ARCHER (SEASON 1)
Much like its FX counterpart, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Archer is a show about horrible people doing horrible things. Premised as a ’60s spy thriller spoof, the series adopts the same irreverent brand of humor we’ve come to expect from creator Adam Reed (Frisky Dingo, Sealab 2021), thrusting our deviant band of self-obsessed special agents through the ringer as they spout fiercely clever/cleverly stupid insults at one another and zanily stumble through mission after mission—with varying degrees of blood loss. It’s everything loyal fans like myself came to love about Frisky Dingo, just with a tad bit more (very welcome) narrative structure. If you aren’t watching it, you should be.
Available on Blu-ray? No.
Notable Extras: Original Unaired Pilot, Unaired Network Promo, The Making Of Archer (3D, Animation, Art Direction, Backgrounds, Illustration, Storyboards), deleted scenes, and pilot episodes for “Louie” and “The League”.
