The CW has been green lighting several pilots in the last several weeks but one green lighting got a lot of attention. Green lighting Green Arrow. The producers on the project are Greg Berlanti (from Everwood), Andrew Kreisberg (from The Vampire Diaries and Fringe), and also Marc Guggenheim (FlashForward). For those hoping for Justin Hartley to be back in the role, they have cast another Green Arrow. Stephen Amell will be in the lead role. It will be interesting to see how this turns out. The early talk seems to be that this Green Arrow will be a different style of character than the one we are used to in Smallville. This will be something to keep an eye on.
Season Five of Chuck will be released on May 8, 2012 on DVD and Blu-ray. The Warner Brothers press release shows these as the DVD and Blu-ray extras on the set: featurette on shooting the final episode, featurette called "Sandwiches and Superfans: The Saving of a Show", a featurette on the music scoring for Chuck, gag reel, full versions of the Buy More ads with Big Mike and Captain Awesome, audio commentaries on two episodes, "declassified" scenes, featurettes on "The Beginnings", "Through The Years", and "The Future", and also an extended version of the series finale. I really enjoyed season five of Chuck and thought that they did a lot with 13 episodes. The extras look like a lot of fun and it looks like a good tribute to the show especially with the featurette on saving the show cause the fans are a huge part of the legacy of that show. Great show, cast, and crew. I am looking forward to seeing the extended finale as the producers have been talking in interviews about stuff they had to unfortunately cut out due to time. So, May 8 is your date Chuck fans to pick up the final season.
TV on DVD for this week. Downton Abbey (Season Two), Father Dowling Mysteries (Season One), Laramie (Season Two), Rocko's Modern Life (Season Two), Rules Of Engagement (Season Five).
