NBC / Universal

When our stocking winners are tired from playing with all of their amazing toys they can get some rest by watching some of the great new DVDs from NBC Universal...

Burn Notice: Season 2Burn Notice settles into a satisfying groove in its second season. The cast is cool and confident, the writers have mastered the mix of stand-alone stories and the season-long hook, and the blend of retro-70s flavor with 21st century self-awareness is delicious. Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) still hasn.t figured out who .burned. him--i.e., got him blacklisted as a covert agent and left him trapped in Miami. But he has uncovered a lead in the form of Carla (Tricia Helfer, Battlestar Galactica), a mysterious manipulator who assigns Michael unexplained tasks. But if he resists these tasks, everyone he loves is at risk--including his mom, Madeline (Sharon Gless, Cagney & Lacey), his sleek and violent ex-girlfriend Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar, Scent of a Woman), and his squirrelly best pal, Sam (Bruce Campbell, Evil Dead II).
Psych Season 3As Psych's second year drew to a close, Gus (Dulé Hill) had become a pharmaceutical rep and Shawn (James Roday) welcomed his long-lost mother, Madeleine (Cybill Shepherd), back to town. In all other respects, the show remains the same. Gus just has two jobs instead of one, and the detecting continues. Later, Shawn reconnects with his treasure-hunting Uncle Jack (Steven Weber) and former flame Abigail (Rachael Leigh Cook), who seems likely to return in the future. The same goes for Chief Vick's sister, Coast Guard Commander Dunlap (Jane Lynch), who has eyes for the still-married Lassie (Timothy Omundson).
