Brad Meltzer's Decoded: Season 2 [DVD]
Manufacturer: A&E HOME VIDEO Model: 25195331
Product DescriptionBest-selling author and history buff Brad Meltzer has studied and written about some of the most revered institutions and documents in human history including the Supreme Court, the presidency, the Secret Service, Wall Street, and the bible. Along the way he's uncovered countless clues, stories and theories he hasn't been able to fully scrutinize until now. In BRAD MELTZER'S DECODED SEASON TWO, he explores the hidden codes and symbols that surround us. Drawing from Brad's fascination with history, this captivating HISTORY series serves as a foundation to inform the past and reveal valuable stories about the future.BRAD MELTZER'S DECODED SEASON TWO includes all 13 episodes.Special Features:Additional FootageDISC 1: Ft. Knox / Declaration of Independence / Mount Rushmore / PattonDISC 2: Spear of Destiny / Billy The Kid / UFODISC 3: Da Vinci / 2012: The Beginning / Mafia: Alive?DISC 4: Vatican / Houdini: Murdered? / Devil s Graveyard, Alaska / Bonus Author Brad Meltzer and his crew take on another batch of mysteries, myths, alleged conspiracies, and long-hidden secrets in this second season (13 episodes, plus bonus material, on four discs) of the History Channel's Decoded. In the first season, Meltzer addressed a broad variety of subjects, from the prophesies of Nostradamus to the fates of John Wilkes Booth and airline hijacker D.B. Cooper, and this season's topics are equally wide-ranging. Did such historical figures as outlaw Billy the Kid, Gen. George Patton, Pope John Paul I (who was in office for just 33 days), and magician Harry Houdini all meet their deaths as the history books tell us, or were there other, perhaps more sinister causes? Is it possible that Fort Knox, the world's most famous bullion depository, actually contains no gold at all, or that Mt. Rushmore, that glorious symbol of American patriotism, is in fact a monument to white supremacy? And will Doomsday really be upon us on December 21, 2012, as has been foretold? These are interesting, provocative questions, and Meltzer dispatches his field team (professor Buddy Levy, engineer Christine McKinley, and lawyer Scott Rolle) to track down the answers. The problem is, they rarely do; much of what's presented here amounts to little more than overheated hunches, guesswork, and speculation, backed up by precious little in the way of evidence or facts. "What if [America's] superpower status is based on an empty room?" Meltzer asks in the Fort Knox segment, predicting that world economic chaos would be the result--but no one from the team actually gets inside to find out if it's empty or not. As for Mt. Rushmore, they do uncover indications that sculptor Gutzon Borglum was a member of the Ku Klux Klan, but there is no proof that he intended his work to signify anything racist or separatist; meanwhile, suggesting that Adolf Hitler possessed the "spear of destiny" (the lance used by a Roman soldier to pierce the side of Jesus Christ as he died on the cross) and had it ...

Top Gear USA: The Complete First Season
Manufacturer: BBC Home Entertainment Brand: Warner Manufacturing Model: 17522314
Join comedian Adam Ferrera, champion rally and drift racer Tanner Foust and racing analyst Rutledge Wood as they unleash Top Gear and explore the history of America, one lap at a time! Filled with wit and humor, Top Gear brings even more ambitious stunts, extreme challenges, humor and mischief in a series chock-full of high adrenaline action entertainment, car reviews and eccentric adventures. Top Gear challenges include travelling a moonshine run along a classic Prohibition route in the Deep South, teaching a blind man to drift a Nissan 370Z, racing a HALO jumper in a Ford Velociraptor across the Arizona desert, discovering America’s toughest truck on an epic journey through the Alaskan wilderness, and evading a Cobra helicopter gunship in a Dodge Viper… through the middle of town. The Stig also appears, setting definitive Power Laps for performance cars featured on the show, and there’s a host of celebrities taking the wheel in “Big Star in a Small Car” including astronaut Buzz Aldrin, Lost actor Dominic Monahan, Modern Family’s Ty Burrel, musician Kid Rock, Avatar star Michelle Rodriguez and skateboard legend and game designer Tony Hawk. A very popular, very English auto show crosses the pond with the debut of Top Gear US, featuring 10 first-season episodes (plus bonus material) on three discs--and while the Brit-ness is definitely gone, in virtually every other respect this feast for car freaks has made the trip intact. Three hosts (the new Yanks are Adam Ferrara, Tanner Foust, and Rutledge Wood) road test high-performance, high price tag "supercars" (Lamborghini Gallardo, Morgan Aero SuperSports, Aston Martin V12 Vantage) and trucks; merrily punish old beaters purchased for $1,000 (Cadillac Coupe DeVille, Buick Roadmaster); take part in bizarre challenges, like those matching a Dodge Viper against a helicopter and a Ford VelociRaptor truck against a HALO parachute jumper; host visiting celebs (Tony Hawk, Michelle Rodriguez, Kid Rock, astronaut Buzz Aldrin) who drive a lap in a cheap Suzuki sedan; and exchange occasionally witty banter in front of a studio audience. The vehicles may differ, but the show's format is identical to its British counterpart's. And why not--it works. That includes the music, too; it's hard not to like a show that features Black Sabbath, the Doors, and Mussorgsky along with the Allman Brothers' "Jessica" as its theme song. Of course, there are a few differences. Instead of tooling around, say, the Italian Alps, our heroes do their driving in rural North Carolina, coastal Florida, the western desert, and other American locales (as always, both the locations and the cars are beautifully photographed). And in the absence of the English hosts, especially the droll Jeremy Clarkson, the tone is markedly American; less Jeremy means more Jackass, you might say, although Ferrara, assuming the Clarkson role, gets off some good one-liners, like comparing driving the Lamborghini to "being aroused at gunpoint."

Survivor - The Complete First Season
Manufacturer: Paramount Brand: Paramount Home Video Model: 2238044
Every incredible episode from the debut season of the reality show supreme-Survivor- where 16 ordinary Americans compete for one million dollars by surviving. The contestants are marooned 20 miles off the coast of Borneo and forced to fend for themselves in hopes of outlasting the others in the group which meets every 3 days to vote one person off the island and the show. 1999-2000/color/11 hrs, 4 min/NR/fullscreen. Here's where it all began. The first season of Survivor dominated the ratings in the summer of 2000, helped spur the reality-TV craze, and inspired countless water-cooler jokes about getting voted off the island. The first season established the formula that would continue, with sometimes surprising variations, over numerous subsequent seasons: 16 people intended to represent the American mosaic are stranded far from civilization (in this case, the island of Pulau Tiga, off the coast of Borneo), struggle for food and shelter, compete in a series of physical and mental challenges, and at the end of each three-day episode vote out one of their fellow contestants. After 39 days, the one sole survivor who is able to outwit, outplay, and outlast the others wins a million-dollar prize. Because the Survivor craze preceded the craze for complete-season DVD boxed sets, the first season was represented on DVD and video by a 150-minute highlights package called Season One: The Greatest and Most Outrageous Moments. Now, all 13 episodes are available in a five-disc set (the fifth disc is ...Outrageous Moments) that contains every challenge, every political maneuver, every next-episode preview and previous-episode recap, every tribal council including the famous finale, and the reunion show. If you started watching Survivor in the Australian Outback or later, this is the perfect opportunity to see how host Jeff Probst, scheming Richard Hatch, tough truck driver Sue Hawk, ex-Navy SEAL Rudy Boesch, athletic Kelly Wiglesworth, and the others got the ball rolling. If you did watch the first season, here's your chance to relive it, and you also get an enthusiastic group commentary by host Jeff Probst (poking fun at himself) and contestants Hatch (talking the most, which should surprise no one), Boesch, and Gervase Peterson on the first and last episodes, plus some minor featurettes (seven minutes of footage of the contestants leaving L.A. for Borneo, David Letterman's Top 10 featuring the contestants, and 10 minutes of new interviews with Hatch, Boesch, and Peterson). Many reality shows have come and gone in the meantime, but in terms of staying fresh over a long run, Survivor has outwitted, outplayed, and outlasted them all. --David Horiuchi
