This American Life: Season One — Review

Based on the much-beloved Chicago-based National Public Radios show, Showtime's version of This American Life stars Ira Glass as the moderator of a documentary-style series that examines the infinite intricacies and fascinating foibles of ordinary people. The first season's six episodes, including "Reality Check," "God's Close-up" and "Pandora's Box," appear on one disc. As for extras, the show's director, Christopher Wilcha, and the incredibly likable Glass offer audio commentary. Even if you haven't ever heard the radio version, trust us on this one: You won't want to miss This American Life. — Nina Hämmerling SmithThis American Life: Season One is available today at Borders stores; you can sign up to be notified when it's available at Amazon.com. read more
