Direct to DVD

This is a weird time of year- betwixt and between seasons. A few summer shows- like Breaking Bad and Weeds– are still airing, but they’re winding down. The True Blood and Damages season finales have already aired, and other shows, such as Leverage and Pretty Little Liars are on hiatus for a month or two.

Other things are coming back, and some new shows have already started. The first episode of Ringer, Sarah Michelle Gellar’s much-hyped new show, already happened, and next week there’ll be new How I Met Your Mother, Glee, Community, Supernatural and much, much more.

But what are you supposed to do up until that deluge?

DVDs may well hold the answer. Not only can you prepare for the upcoming seasons by rewatching episodes, but you can also discover hidden delights amongst the DVD extras.

More recently I discovered that there’s a documentary included with Supernatural‘s season six about Jensen Ackles’ experience of directing his first episode. It’s an interesting behind the scenes peek, with insights into the show and directing in general:

What other DVD extras would you recommend we pore over to get us through the week?
