Does this make me a bad person, or just a bad fan?

The House Season Two DVD is coming out tomorrow, and I had been intending on reviewing it whether or not I got a review copy from NBC Universal. But then I didn’t get one, and I haven’t felt motivated to get a start on what I could write without having the DVD in my hands. I was feeling a little burned out on House reviewing by the end of last season (not the show, just the reviewing), and I don’t seem to be completely … unburned. So even though I’ll likely pick it up tomorrow, I don’t think I’ll have the time or motivation to watch and write anything quickly, and it’s going to seem a little beside the point the longer it takes me to get it done. Besides, now I have a stack of other review materials I’m excited about that I need to prioritize because I did get review copies, which makes companies expect timely reviews, and I don’t want to get my kneecaps broken by angry PR people.

But anyway. It’s out tomorrow. Great show. Buy it.

DVD Features:

  • Anamorphic widescreen [I guess they’ve learned since last year]
  • Available Subtitles: English, Spanish
  • Available Audio Tracks: English (Dolby Digital 5.1)
  • “An Evening With House” panel discussion at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences with the cast and executive producers
  • Commentary by executive producers David Shore and Katie Jacobs on the episodes “Autopsy” and “No Reason
  • Alternate takes from the episodes “Daddy’s Boy” and “Sleeping Dogs Lie” with Lisa Edelstein (Cuddy) and Jennifer Morrison (Cameron) performing, like, Valley Girl style [not exactly on the top of my extras wish list, but mildly amusing – they were on Amazon as a preview for a while]
  • “It Could Be Lupus…” – A montage of clips highlighting the shows oft-repeated diagnosis [ha! glad they didn’t pick vasculitis]
  • Blooper Reel

    we forgive you Diane…besides, you’ve written plenty on the show to date.

    Gee, thanks Will! After all the verbiage I’ve produced over the past season, I kinda feel like I should write the DVD review, but then I figure that’s a sign I shouldn’t write one, if it feels like an obligation when there is no actual obligation. But then I feel strangely slackerish about not writing one, so write overexplanatory posts and comments about feeling guilty about it.

    I second Will’s comment, Diane. But don’t you want to see the blooper real?

    Yes! I definitely want to get it, and watch it, and listen to the commentaries. I just don’t think I want to write about it. I forgot to buy it yesterday but it’s on my to-do list for today for sure.

    Seriously, the blooper reel is worth the $40. It’s fantastic, way better than I was imagining 🙂
