While June may be my birthday month — thereby the best month ever — July brought with it some of the greatest DVD gifts a TV addict could ask for. Including some long-awaited arrivals, as well as two takes on L.A.'s prettiest people. So if you missed any of them, get with the program. Just don't ask to borrow mine. 'Cause I'm not sharing these goodies! — Damian HolbrookFastlane — Finally! Fox's uber-fab cars-and-cops series parks itself on shelves, complete with Peter Facinelli in low-rider leather pants, Bill Bellamy doing drama almost better than he does comedy, and a scorchin' attitude. In fact, the only thing missing is the "Amber" from Tiffani Thiessen, who is still pretty hot as the ex-junkie in charge of the Candy Shop, a sort of sexed-up Batcave for her bad-boy employees. And yes, Pervy McPervesters... the Thiessen-Jaime Pressly hot-tub smooch is intact. Buy Fastlane on Amazon.comTiny Toon Adventures — They're tiny, they're tooney, they're all a lit... read more

Last week in his "Joy of Sets" column right here at DVD News & Reviews, Damian Holbrook posted his "wish list of shows [he] would LOVELOVELOVE to show up on DVD during 2008" (that's a direct quote). Near the top of Damian's list was the 2002 series Fastlane, created by McG through Warner Bros. Television, and airing on the Fox Network.The show starred Peter Facinelli (Six Feet Under, Damages), Bill Bellamy (How to Be a Player, Any Given Sunday) and Tiffani Thiessen (aka Tiffani-Amber Thiessen; Beverly Hills 90210, Saved by the Bell) as undercover cops using confiscated goods to go after the crooks in L.A., and included a ton of great guest stars among the 22 episodes produced.Now Peter Facinelli's official website is saying that the show is on its way to DVD this coming summer. If that doesn't put a smile on Damian's face, I'm not sure what will!For more details about this, and for a look at the graphic showing off the news, read the full story at! — David... read more

OK, so how cool is our new DVD blog? Fancy, huh? Yeah, I know, it’s like cracking open that full-season set of your dreams and finding out they threw in a secret bonus disc!To celebrate the cool new digs—and the new year (which sadly for me kicked off with the stomach flu from Hell)—I thought it would be nifty to do a wish list of shows I would LOVELOVELOVE to show up on DVD during 2008. And once I'm done ya'll need to send me your picks so we can all commiserate later on, aiiight?Models Inc. — Laugh all ya’s want, but 1994’s cheesoid Melrose spin-off had a pre-"Matrix" Carrie Ann Moss and a wedding-day sniper cliffhanger that Aaron Spelling himself told me was resolved in the UK version of the finale. For the love of Emma Samms, I need to know who took the bullet!Wonderbug — Just to shut up my brother the mechanic! Once a month he’s all “find me that show!” Honestly, the Sid & Marty Krofft Saturday-morning head trip about a talk... read more

Fastlane's Girl-on-Girl Encore

Viewers may have gotten a kick out of Tiffani Thiessen and Jaime Pressly's sapphic hot-tub smooch on the Jan. 17 Fastlane, but filming the same-sex sequence was no picnic for the former Saved by the Bell goody two-shoes. "It was freakin' freezing in the jacuzzi because they didn't heat it," Thiessen tells TV Guide Online. "That was the only thing that was really difficult about it. It was so cold." Well, the ex-90210 hellraiser can warm herself with the knowledge that her suffering was not in vain. The heavily-promoted lip-lock gave the show a considerable ratings bump in its new Fridays-at-8 pm/ET time slot. Not surprisingly, Thiessen though read more
