Wrapping up a flaming hot summer, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is having an incredibly busy year moving toward fall, cranking out cool new releases on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. In fact in the last month alone, not one but two separate titles -- both complete seasons of very popular cable series -- have been rolled out and are now available to home viewers including The Originals: The Complete Second Season and The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Sixth Season.
The Originals: The Complete Second Season
Timed to coincide with the third season series premiere on The CW, fans now have the opportunity to own The Originals: The Complete Second Season in Blu-ray and/or DVD that was just released on September 1. The Originals enthusiasts will be thrilled to have not only all 22 nail biting one-hour episodes at the ready to watch again and again, you'll also be treated to more than one hour of never before seen extras including the famous 2014 Panel Comic-Con, featurettes, deleted scenes and even a gag reel which is hilarious.
In the second season the original vampire-werewolf hybrid Klaus Mikaelson, along with his odd ball siblings Elijah and Rebekah, return to the supernaturally charged city of New Orleans that viewers will remember from the first season. Upon arrival they're all surprised to find that werewolf Hayley (who was pregnant with his child) and his vampire sidekick Marcel (who the Original siblings had assumed was dead) are ruling the French Quarter. A bloody war soon ensues between vampires and witches and the plot thickens when new characters emerge to upset the ghoulish apple cart. You'll have a hard time stopping between episodes because each one has a cliff hanger that leaves you begging to find out what happens next. So my suggestion is that you don't start watching until you have a good block of time free for a mini marathon of drama, intrigue and suspense.
