Now for more of the latest TV on disc releases....

Hitting its stride as the best of the regal/royal dramatic series, The Crown: Season Four (2020) starts off in the very end of the 1970s as Margaret Thatcher (another stunning performance by Gillian Anderson) and Lady Diana Spencer marries Prince Charles. Both will turn out to be twin disasters for all involved and shows the series never holds back on anything. For those who missed the previous seasons, our Blu-ray coverage as follows:

Season One


Season Two


Now they are in territory more familiar and as inevitably shocking and scandalous as any. To say anything else would ruin any surprises they managed to come up with, but everyone is raving about this season and this time, the hype is accurate.

The 1080p 2.00 X 1 digital High Definition image retains the sometimes subtly dark style of the previous seasons and looks fine for what is intended, while the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless mix sounds good and as strong and professional as the previous season. Dialogue is always clear and sound editing better than it might first seem.

Extras include a Photo Gallery and three behind-the-scenes featurettes: Triumph & Tragedy: Charles & Diana, Three Groundbreaking Women and Research, Costumes & More: The Making of Season 4.

From Gareth Evans (Apostle, The Raid 2) directs the cinematic series Gangs Of London: Season One (2020) that gets a nice Blu-ray release courtesy of AMC and RLJ. There have been a lot of films and series on gangs in London and movies like The Krays, all of which were definitely inspiration for this more modern take on the formula, but doesn't feel like it brings too anything groundbreaking to the genre.

A powerful criminal is found dead and now all of the crime families in London start piecing together the murder and an intense power struggle begins. While the show is pretty violent its not as bad as something you would see on HBO as AMC was the original station the series was broadcasted on.

The series stars Joe Cole, Sope Dirisu, Lucian Msamati, Paapa Essiedu, Michelle Fairley, and Brian Vernel.

Gangs of London is presented in 1080p high definition on Blu-ray disc with an MPEG-4 AVC codec, a widescreen aspect ratio of 2.00:1 and an English DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 (48kHz, 16-bit) mix, both of which are up to a high standard for the Blu-ray format. The show has high production value and a very cinematic look. There are ten episodes in Season One.

and Elliot vs Len.

Shaun Murphy is a savant doctor with autism serving at St. Bonaventure Hospital in the surgical department. As both he and the hospital face new challenges in the coming year include COVID 19, new residents and parenthood, Shaun will be challenged no only is saving lives, but to lead and teach the new recruits on how to be a good doctor.

While it isn't advertised very widely as such, The Nevers (2021), the HBO supernatural series is directed by Joss Whedon. Under fire still with genre fans over the whole Justice League fiasco, Whedon brings us The Nevers, which is a kind of X-Men-like story with humans with special powers only pit up against the backdrop of Victorian London. The show feels uninspired and a bore despite some interesting visuals and feels pretty generic despite it being on HBO.

The Nevers: Season One, Part One (2021) features an ensemble cast that includes Laura Donnelly, Ann Skelly, Olivia Williams, James Norton, Tom Riley, Rochelle Neil, Eleanor Tomlinson, Amy Manson, Pip Torrens, Denis O'Hare, Zackary Momoh, Elizabeth Berrington, Kiran Sonia Sawar, Anna Devlin, Viola Prettejohn, Ella Smith, Nick Frost and Ben Chaplin.

A supernatural event gives a group of women special abilities. This puts them in danger audits up a widow and an inventor to help face those who wish to lock them up.

The Nevers is presented in 1080p high definition on Blu-ray disc with an MPEG-4 AVC codec, a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and an English DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 (48kHz, 16-bit) mix, both of which are up to a high standard for the Blu-ray format.

Joe (Penn Badgley) was a book seller from New York, until he had to runaway to Los Angeles to start over a new life after he killed his girlfriend and his (another) former ex-girlfriend comes chasing after him, swearing she will have her revenge. Now Joe lives in Los Angeles as 'Will' and he meets and falls for a new girl named 'Love', but can he hide from his past much less learn from them? In order to protect his new life from the old one, he will do whatever is necessary to protect himself and use his unique skills to protect the people he cares about in You: Season Two (2019).

Joe had to reinvent himself after running away from New York, and he meets a new girl named 'Love', but he discovers she needs his protection from her addict socialite brother and his underaged neighbor from Henderson, a celebrity but is secretly a pedophile. Top it off, his ex-girlfriend comes hunting him down and is now known as 'Amy'. As 'Will' plays cat and mouse with 'Amy' can he keep his new life and from Love discovering his old one?

If you like murder and the macabre you would like this series, the series is very similar to the series Dexter in where the main character finds himself justifying himself to kill. In a world filled with injustice, and where the law is either too lazy or corrupt, you come to understand the reasons of how the main character is the 'hero' of the show (but in real life he would be viewed as a serial killer). In the end, the audience has to decide for themselves ARE there conditions when people should be justified to kill and if the main protagonist is a hero or a murder?

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image looks and lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 sounds as good as the show possibly could in this older format, but it plays fine enough. There are no extras, but you can read more about the first season of the show at this link:
