Three different police chiefs in three different eras become involved in a growing mystery -- who is the mass murderer behind the killing of transient youths in and around the fictional southern town of Delano over a forty year period? In this three-part, six-hour miniseries, Charlton Heston, in his return to TV acting after fourteen years (his career in television goes back to 1949), is one of the town's founding fathers and he has stayed on as a powerbroker as, successively, cotton farmer Wayne Rogers, racist Brad Davis, and college educated Billy Dee Williams become police chiefs over the years in this adaptation of Stuart Woods' novel. Keith Carradine replaced an ailing Andy Griffith as Foxy Funderburke, a disgruntled local harboring a forty year grudge, and received an Emmy Award nomination as Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series. The production itself was nominated as Outstanding Limited Series and for art direction and set decoration.

|National Geographic Search for Battleship Bismarck [VHS]

"Sink the Bismarck" was the cry as British forces searched the Atlantic for the German navy's most powerful vessel. The pursuit ended on May 27, 1941, in a battle that plunged the Bismarck into waters nearly three miles deep, taking with it more than 2,000 lives. Almost half a century later, explorer and scientist Dr. Robert D. Ballard, who discovered the sunken S.S. Titanic, searched the Atlantic for the infamous Bismarck. On June 8, 1989, he located the sunken ship, 600 miles off the coast of France. National Geographic looks back at the first - and last - mission of the Bismarck and talks with survivors of the notorious World War II battle. Then, in its climactic chapter, SEARCH FOR THE BATTLESHIP BISMARCK reveals exclusive footage of this remarkable undersea exploration.
The battleship Bismarck, the pride of the Nazi navy, was thought, like the ill-fated Titanic, to be unsinkable. When it left port in May 1941, even the formidable British navy professed to be nervous, and the rallying cry "Sink the Bismarck!" was born. Amazingly, just two weeks into its maiden voyage, the Bismarck was spotted, torpedoed, and sunk by the British in the North Atlantic, an almost unbelievable turn of events--as crucial a turning point in World War II for the Germans, according to one survivor interviewed in this video, as Pearl Harbor was for the Americans. In 1989 Dr. Bob Ballard, the man who discovered the Titanic, and a crew painstakingly searched a 100-square-mile area off France, and after some heartbreaking near misses, ultimately found the remains of the once-glorious ship. The video cuts effectively between historic footage, interviews with British and German survivors, and scenes from the Ballard expedition, expertly woven together to paint a complete portrait of the sinking and its aftermath. Fans of Titanic and World War II buffs especially will be fascinated. --Anne Hurley

During the 1980s, one cartoon series ruled the airwaves... TheTransformers. This paragon of consumerism was created with a dual purpose--to entertain and to galvanize children to buy the toys. Somewhere along the line, the show became a cult favorite, so in 1986 they fashioned an epic tale of good versus evil specifically for the big screen. The result looked vaguely like an animated remake of Star Wars. Who are the Transformers? The good guys are the Autobots: Optimus Prime, Jazz, Ultra Magnus, and many more. Their mortal enemies are the evil Decepticons, led by Megatron and StarScream. The Autobots must save their home planet from an evil entity known as Unicron (voiced by Orson Welles). At the same time, they must defend themselves from an all-out attack from the Decepticons. Along the way, lives are lost, battles are fought, and a new Autobot leader is born. The story and action never stop in a thrilling ride that often makes you forget that you're watching an '80s cartoon with inferior graphics. The violence will also come as a mild shock to those who haven't seen this film for a while--definitely a movie for the 8 and over audience. For those who grew up on this series, this is a movie that must be watched. Unlike cartoon serials before and after, The Transformers relied on solid stories and interesting characters, a manifesto the film itself upholds with gusto and grace while also being morally responsible. Don't underestimate this movie; there is definitely more to it than meets the eye. --Jeremy Storey
|The Newsroom, Vol. 1-4 Boxed Set [VHS]

Brand: CBC / Acorn Media
In the same vein as The Larry Sanders Show, The Newsroom exploits the foibles behind the scenes of a television program (this time a Canadian public newsroom rather than a talk show), using dark humor and incredible wit. Ken Finkleman stars as George Findlay, a news director with few morals, an affection for bran muffins, and a BMW constantly in need of repair. (One of the funniest running jokes of the series is his quarrels with his BMW dealer, who must submit to George's tasteless anti-German remarks; when the dealer refuses to send someone to pick up George's car in order to fix a broken window, George retorts, "Well, listen, you had no trouble sending people over to Poland.") Finkleman is supported by a wonderful cast, including a less-than-submissive intern (she refuses to run his errands), two producers who are happy to "alter" the news, and a somewhat clichéd anchorman who makes bubbleheaded on-air faux pas. This set contains all 13 episodes of the show. For those lucky enough to have seen The Newsroom on television, this is a wonderful chance to relive the hilarious moments. For those who have yet to see the program, this is the perfect opportunity to discover one of the most intelligent and clever television shows made. --Jenny Brown

|The Sopranos - The Complete Second Season [VHS]
Lowest new price: $6.95
Lowest used price: $0.01
List price: $14.99
The most-nominated show on television, winner of critical raves and awards (Emmys, Golden Globes, Peabodys), this gripping HBO series redefines family with unforgettable characters, tough-guy patois, and a hip, eclectic soundtrack. Season two. 13 episodes; 13 hours on 5 cassettes or 4 DVDs.
In its second season, The Sopranos sustains the edgy intelligence and unpredictable, genre-warping narrative momentum that made this modern mob saga the most critically acclaimed series of the late 1990s. Creator-producer David Chase repeatedly defies formula to let the narrative turn as a direct consequence of the characters' behavior, letting everyone in this rogue's gallery of Mafiosi, friends, and family evolve and deepen.
That gamble is most apparent in the rupture of the relationship that formed the spine of the first season, the tangled ties between capo Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) and monstrous matriarch Livia (Nancy Marchand), whose betrayal makes Tony's estrangement a logical response. Filling that vacuum, however, is prodigal sister Janice (Aida Turturro), whose New Age flakiness never successfully conceals her underlying calculation and opportunism. Soprano's relationship with therapist Jennifer Melfi (Lorraine Bracco) also frays during early episodes, as she struggles with escalating doubts about her mobbed-up patient. At home, Tony contends with wife Carmela's ruthless ambitions on behalf of college-bound Meadow, as well as son Anthony Jr.'s sullen adolescent flirtation with existentialism--the sort of touch that the show handles with a smart mix of sympathy and amusement.
Without spoiling the surprise of the season's climactic last episode, it's worth noting that only on The Sopranos could we expect a scene that sets up a mob hit with a perversely funny touch of magic realism--a talking fish, lying on a fishmonger's iced display, speaking with the voice of the victim. It's a touch at once morbid and goofy, and consistent with the show's undimmed brilliance. --Sam Sutherland

|The Thorn Birds - The Complete Miniseries [VHS]
Lowest new price: $6.45
Lowest used price: $3.26
A priest tormented by an earthly love; a beautiful woman who desires what she cannot have. Their destinies intertwine in this epic story set against the breathtaking Australian Outback. Based on the Colleen McCullough bestseller, The Thorn Birds won six Emmy® Awards and was one of the top-rated miniseries in television history. Barbara Stanwyck, Richard Charmberlain, and Rachel Ward star. About 8 hours on 4 cassettes.
The second most-watched miniseries (after Roots) of all time, The Thorn Birds was originally broadcast in 1983 and captivated viewers with its story of a lifelong conflict between the spirit and the flesh. Adapted from the bestselling novel by Colleen McCullough, the production stars Richard Chamberlain as a Catholic priest named Ralph de Bricassart, whose life in Australia between 1920 and 1962 is one long torment as he pines for his lover, Meggie Carson (Rachel Ward), while seeking advancement in his clergyman career. The passion and the guilt make for compelling drama, but a stellar cast of supporting players adds muscle to the proceedings: Barbara Stanwyck (who won an Emmy for her work as Meggie's tough grandmother), Jean Simmons, Richard Kiley, Christopher Plummer, Bryan Brown, and Mare Winningham. Chamberlain, who was something of the king of the miniseries form at the time, is very good in the lead, as is the often-underrated Ward. Their affair is indeed irresistible to watch, which proves to be true, too, of the story's thick weave of church politics, forbidden desire, social change over decades, and family secrets. --Tom Keogh
