Life Expected: The Best Show You’re Not Watching Gets a DVD/Blu-ray Release!

LifeUnexpected_Complete

While The CW has yet to make an official announcement, by not picking up the ‘back nine’ for Life Unexpected, it effectively let it be known that the series was canceled. Now comes news that Warner Home Video will be releasing Life Unexpected: The Complete Series on DVD and Blu-ray on April 5, 2011.

Although the set will include all twenty-six episodes from the show’s two seasons, it’s incredible light on bonus material. The WHV press release only lists the following: Life In Portland: The Making of Life Unexpected; Lux, Cate, Baz, Ryan & Math: The Casting of Life Unexpected; Deleted Scenes, and a Gag Reel. It’s a sad end for the best teen soap on TV.

Shawn, Gus, Julie & - Alan Zenuk

The mid-season finale of Psych [Wednesday, USA, 10/9C] begins with an e-mail alerting Shawn and Gus to a ‘cinnamon festival’ in the small [so small it’s in parentheses on the computer map they check] town of Dual Spires. The guys immediately set off [they do love their cinnamon] – and find themselves in the strangest little town they’ve ever visited. Then, a plastic-wrapped dead girl turns up. The dead girl is Paula Merral, niece of the owners of The Sawmill Café – and we cut to the opening credits and… Julee Cruise singing an Angelo Badalamenti-like arrangement of the Psych theme.

SyFy’s Auction: Finding your own ‘Hollywood Treasure’

 

SyFy’s popular new program Hollywood Treasure is a different type of reality-based show.  It has a premise and format that hooks the viewer through the presentation of interesting Hollywood memorabilia, while tapping into the curiosity factor of wanting to know not only how much they are worth but what others are ultimately willing to pay for them.  The show has an addictive, quick-paced formula basically consisting of three ‘hooks’ and each week presents two half-hour episodes.  There are even special auctions held to benefit charity.  And the best part is that SyFy also makes it possible for viewers to take part in auctions.  This includes unique items from fan favorites Battlestar Galactica, Caprica, Warehouse 13, as well as trip packages for Comic Con with VIP access, and an all-expense paid weekend with the Ghost Hunters.  You can also get your hands on scripts signed by the cast of Stargate Universe or Warehouse 13. Or how about the purple dress worn by Alessandra Torresani on Caprica?  These and many other items are now up for grabs to the highest bidder.
