By Chris Hicks Deseret News These new-to-DVD television shows include a wide variety of old and new. "Samantha Who?: The Complete First Season" (ABC, 2007-08, two discs, $29.99). Christina Applegate stars in this sitcom about redemption, as a woman who has amnesia following a car accident and is shocked to learn that she was self-centered and mean-spirited.

By Chris Hicks Deseret News Three vintage thrillers -- two starring Ida Lupino -- lead off this look at new-to-DVD movies and TV shows. "Moontide" (Fox, 1942, b/w, $14.98). "Boomerang" (Fox, 1947, b/w, $14.98). "Road House" (Fox, 1948, b/w, $14.98). These three thrillers are the latest entries in the "Fox Film Noir" series, and they are all welcome editions -- although a couple of them somewhat strain the parameters of noir. "Moontide" is set in a Southern California seaside town and...

By Chris Hicks Deseret News These new-to-DVD television programs are led by the debut of a high-profile film that helped propel Tommy Lee Jones to stardom in the early 1980s. "The Executioner's Song: Director's Cut" (CBS/Paramount, 1982, $19.99). Made in Utah with a screenplay by Norman Mailer (based on his Pulitzer Prize-winning book), the film is about Gary Gilmore, the convicted killer who demanded execution by firing squad -- and when it finally happened in January 1977, it was the...

By Chris Hicks Deseret News These disparate TV series all arrive on DVD for the first time this week. "A History of Britain" (History/BBC, 2000-02, five discs, $39.95). Historian Simon Schama wrote and is the on-camera narrator of this documentary series, going on location to offer up events (with some re-creations) of his homeland from the earliest days of civilization through the 20th century. Talky but interesting. Extras: full-frame, 15 episodes, text biographies "Law & Order:...

By Chris Hicks Deseret News Here are some disparate films new to DVD, including reissues, debuts and one R-rated independent production that is well worth a look. "Music Within" (MGM/Fox, 2007; R for language, drugs, sex; $27.98) I first saw this film on an airline flight in January, so, of course, the foul language was excised. Still, this is a movie that deserves better than its straight-to-video treatment; it's more involving and challenging than most films that have been in theaters...
