My Trip Down the Pink Carpet — Emmy award-winning actor Leslie Jordan has given memorable performances on Will & Grace and numerous other TV shows and films, but his greatest skill is perhaps a knack for outrageous storytelling. In this filmed version of his acclaimed one-man show, the Southern-born raconteur uses rapid-fire anecdotes and reenactments to chronicle his misadventures in show business.
Prime Suspect: The Complete Collection — Helen Mirren's formidable, multi-award-winning performance as driven, hard-living, no-nonsense detective Jane Tennison stands as one of the iconic star's finest achievements. Ralph Fiennes and Tom Wilkinson are among the numerous before-they-were-famous actors who appear in supporting roles throughout this addictively watchable police procedural. All seven seasons are collected for the first time in this boxed set.
Sons of Anarchy: Season Two — Inexplicably missing from this years Emmy nominations, Sons of Anarchy is violent, crass, and at times hard to watch — but it’s also quite possibly one of the best shows on TV. Sons of Anarchy, loosely based on Shakespeare’s Hamlet, follows a gang of outlaw bikers who essentially take over a small town in Northern California. Katey Sagal in particular stands out as Gemma Teller, the manipulative mother hen to the boys’ club, who’ll stop at nothing to get what she wants.
