WIN THIS! ‘Weeds’ Season 4 DVDs

HOORAY! We have our three winners:

Geraldine, Debbie E and Scooter McGavin! Congrats Weeds fans, and thanks for entering. Your awesome box sets will be on their way to your mailbox shortly. Enjoy, and thanks again for checking us out at TV!

And everyone, keep checking our WIN THIS! section … we’ve got lots more TV goodies coming your way!


Weeds‘ fifth season kicks off on June 8 (10PM ET, Showtime) – and it’s a great episode, particularly for Celia and Andy fans – but season four just hit DVD, and thanks to the generous folks at Lionsgate Home Entertainment, TV has three copies of the fantastic dramedy to give away.

Season four overview: Weeds queen Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) moves her fam to Ren Mar, a town on the San Diego/Tijuana border, after burning down her house and fleeing to avoid any drug connections. Of course, she sets up shop in her new hometown, which leads to some hubbub with the DEA, a cover job at a maternity shop, an affair with Tijuana mayor/drug lord Esteban (Demián Bichir) and … well, so as not to completely spoil it for those who haven’t caught up with the show yet, a very unexpected, life-saving surprise in the season finale.

And the rest of the Agrestic gang is in on the action, too, from hapless Doug (Kevin Nealon), who flees Agrestic to avoid questions about the town’s finances, to PTA mom from Hell Celia (Elizabeth Perkins), whose oldest daughter Quinn gets revenge on her mom for sending her to boarding school, to Nancy’s bro-in-law Andy (the so Emmy-worthy Justin Kirk), who starts a coyote business and discovers he may be in love.

And among the DVD set’s bonus features: audio commentary, a gag reel, featurettes including “The Weed Wranglers,” “‘Burbs to the Beach” and (my fave) “Tour of Bubbie’s House.” And if you have a Blu-ray player, spring for those discs, which also include extra commentaries by Kevin Nealon and the aforementioned, scene-stealing Justin Kirk.

Channel Surfing – May 13

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– The year’s biggest American Idol shocker could turn out to be that Kris Allen earned himself a spot in the final two with his memorable spin on Kanye West‘s “Heartless” on last night’s Idol.

Jim Krasinski says to expect a cool Jim/Pam story in Thursday night’s fifth-season finale of The Office.

– Discovery Channel is planning a high-def sequel to its incredible Planet Earth series, called Wild Planet: North America.

Mark Valley, who’s gotten lost in the shuffle on shows like Boston Legal and Fringe after his terrific, but cancelled-too-soon dramedy Keen Eddie, may finally have landed another great series. Fox is reportedly moving forward with Human, based on a DC Comic, in which Valley stars as Christopher Chance, a guy who offers security for hire services by assuming the identities of people in danger (i.e. he becomes the “target” for them). Jackie Earle Haley and Chi McBride are also among the cool cast.

Alanis Morissette will play Nancy’s (Mary-Louise Parker) baby doctor when Weeds begins its fifth season on June 8.

Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton will not be returning to One Tree Hill next season, as has been the rumor for months.

– Guess who thinks there should be a Creed-centric episode of The Office? Creed. I totally agree.

– Like Rodney Dangerfield, Tony Danza is going back to school. Danza, who admits that “nobody’s knocking down (his) door for acting jobs,” will teach 10th grade English in a New York City school, and film the whole experience for an A&E reality series. That’s one of the more interesting, and least sleazy, reality show ideas to pop up in quite a while.

– A&E is all about the celebreality genre next season, in fact, with other new shows on the horizon from Shaq, Bob Saget, MC Hammer and Steven Seagal, while most of the network’s other new shows fall into the crime drama category. The best news: Parking Wars will be back for another season.

Jamie Foxx will host the BET Awards on June 28 in Los Angeles, with performances by Ne-Yo and Maxwell.

– Starz has given Party Down, an underrated comedy that you should be watching, a second-season pick-up.

– And Paulina Porizkova explained her firing from America’s Next Top Model to Craig Ferguson last night.
