Season one of NBC’s newest drama hit, The Blacklist, will arrive on home video on August 12th. The series, in which Raymond ‘Red’ Reddington aids the FBI in tracking criminals so good they’ve remained completely undetected – but only if deals directly with Agent Elizabeth Keen, was a surprising hit, maintaining top ratings even when accompanied by lead-in The Voice.
The Blu-Ray release, from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, will include ten new featurettes; 22 episodes of Beyond the Blacklist, and commentaries on three episodes – the Pilot, Anslo Garrick Pt. 1 and Berlin: Conclusion – with Jon Bokenkamp, John Eisendrath and Joe Carnahan.

One of the best mini-series of all time is (finally) coming to Blu-Ray. James Clavell’s Shogun, directed by Jerry London, may have been the best thing Richard Chamberlain ever – and it introduced Japanese star Toshiro Mifune to his biggest American audience. The plot had Chamberlain’s John Blackthorne, and English navigator going from being shipwrecked off the coast of Japan to becoming part of warlord Toranaga’s efforts to become Shogun. The mini-series was notable for not employing subtitles, so viewers had to not only follow the complex plotlines, but figure out what was being said. Even with that couldn’t keep Shogun from becoming a ratings giant. The Blu-Ray set, due July 22nd, includes a series of featurettes under the heading The Making of Shogun, a series of Historical Perspective Featurettes and Select Scene Commentary by Jerry London.
