Earlier this month we published the list of the most pirated movies of 2010. Today we bring you the listing of the most pirated television series of 2010. The number one show seems pretty obvious to me… Any guesses? See the full list after the jump.
This week, David Chen, Devindra Hardawar, Russ Fischer, and Adam Quigley discuss the merits of the newest movie from the mind of M. Night Shyamalan, praise the surprisingly good Easy A, debate just exactly how brilliantly Animal Kingdom was, and spend some time in The Town.

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.
The apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic subgenre has been worn out. Between recent outings such as The Book of Eli, 2012, Daybreakers, Doomsday, and The Happening, it’s becoming apparent that there’s really not a whole lot else that can be done with it, and at this point they’re just recycling clichés (e.g. villainous hillbillies, wandering through destroyed landscapes, people turning on each other). The Road though, while not at all exempt from these clichés, is different in one very significant way: It’s not meant to be “fun”. Most movies of this ilk are designed specifically to find the entertainment value in a world reduced to chaos, but very rarely do films ever attempt to find real meaning in that premise. And while The Road may not be as balls-out exciting as some were hoping (you can thank the deliberately deceptive trailer for that), it does put its desolate backdrop to good use, thoughtfully and believably exploring the ways in which our sense of humanity can become lost in times of fear. Those that have read the book will be sure to note how lacking the film is without the artistry and flow of Cormac McCarthy’s prose, but given the limitations of the medium, this is a fine adaptation.
Available on Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: DVD & Blu-ray – Commentary by director John Hillcoat, deleted and extended scenes, and a Making of The Road featurette.

Okay, so we took a day off from the Poster round-up and it seems like the one-sheets have really stacked up fast.

True Blood has quickly become my favorite summer show. With the airing of last night’s season two finale, “Beyond Here Lies Nothin“, I can already feel the pain of another year-long wait ahead of me. Just like Dollhouse, the first season of True Blood took a few episodes to truly get in gear—but once the series found its groove it became an intoxicating combination of sex, violence, and camp. (Anna Paquin’s increasing disregard for clothes was yet another plus.)
The True Blood panel at Comic-Con was one of the bigger ones. Many cast members showed up alongside writer/creator Alan Ball and Charleane Harris, author of the books that led to the show. They seemed grateful for all of the fan response and the packed room. Apparently their panel was in a much smaller space last year since nobody knew about the show.
They showed a short teaser for the rest of season 2, but it was just a quick glimpse. We saw the Texas vampire contingent, Sookie getting into trouble (again), and Jason getting closer to the preacher’s wife he’s been eying.
