Sneak peek: 'Sons of Anarchy' Collector's Set (plus a deleted season 6 scene)

If you thought that “Hell Awaits” season seven teaser for Sons of Anarchy‘s final ride seemed foreboding, check out the packaging for the Collector’s Set that fans will be able to pre-order at Comic-Con. Not only does it come in a wooden box (gun crate or coffin?), but also a custom re-creation of the iconic SAMCRO Reaper clubhouse table—which looks a lot like a tombstone when you stand it vertically.

The set will be available for pre-sale at the Fox booth #4229 in San Diego. When it’s released in November, it will include the first six seasons and a slot for season 7. The Comic-Con price tag—$150 for DVD and $200 for Blu-ray—does not include the final season.

Season six itself will be first available on DVD and Blu-ray on Aug. 26, ahead of the final season’s Sept. 9 premiere. Watch a deleted scene between Tara (Maggie Siff) and Eli (Rockmond Dunbar) from episode 603, “Poenitentia,” below.

Fred Savage, Danica McKellar, and Josh Saviano reflect on 'The Wonder Years'

The-Wonder-Years-Cast-Reunion.jpg

My, how they’ve grown.

Earlier this year, the cast of The Wonder Years reunited for a momentous occasion: Their beloved nostalgia-com, which was kept away from the home-video market for years (reportedly due to music licensing issues—that boomer-friendly soundtrack doesn’t come cheap), was finally slated for a full DVD release. Months later, The Wonder Years: The Complete Series is finally available… for pre-order.

So, yeah: You’ll still have to wait a few more months to snag the full 26 DVD set, which comes packed in a collectible metal locker (just like the ones at Kennedy Junior High) and includes two notebooks that serve as episode guides, a replica yearbook, and every one of the show’s 115 episodes, as well as more than 15 hours of bonus features. (Phew.) READ FULL STORY

'Boy Meets World': The true story of Shawn's 'sister' -- EXCLUSIVE

Boy-Meets-World-DVD.jpg

As the name implies, Boy Meets World focused on the story of one specific kid’s coming of age: Ben Savage’s Cory Matthews. But the beloved TGIF sitcom wouldn’t have had half its power without the titular boy’s two closest compatriots — his best friend Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong) and his true love Topanga Lawrence (Danielle Fishel).

Of course, there was a time before the series had its core trio firmly established. According to Strong, BMW in its early days was determined to find two male best friends for its protagonist — which is why several season 1 installments feature Cory and Shawn hanging out with a third kid who subsequently disappears into the ether. Strong says that after one of those third wheels was let go from the show, he was even given all of the other kid’s lines — which explains why in the season 1 episode “Cory’s Alternative Friends,” Shawn says he has a sister named Stacy. (Nobody ever mentions Stacy again.)

See Strong and his costar Will Friedle reminisce about the show’s casting process in the following exclusive clip, an excerpt from Boy Meets World: The Complete Collection. The 22-disc set hits stores today.

'Weeds: The Complete Collection' DVD first look: Mary Louise Parker, more talk Nancy's sexcapades -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Weeds‘ leading lady left quite an impression on the television world, one that involved lots of drugs, lots of humor, and lots of sex, among other things. And on Tuesday, viewers can get an inside look at Nancy Botwin’s many sexcapades when Weeds: The Complete Collection arrives on Blu-ray.

We’ve got an exclusive first look at one of the collection’s bonus features, which shows Mary Louise Parker, Guillermo Diaz, Hunter Parrish, and Alexander Gould giving their take on how Nancy uses sex on the show, in which Gould compares her to a “hunter.” According to Parker, Nancy uses “whatever she has in her toolbox to get what she wants.” So what does that make sex? “A pretty big hammer.”

'Nashville' deleted scene: Rayna and Teddy in happier times -- VIDEO

Nashville‘s first season hits DVD on Sept. 17, which gives you plenty of time to marathon it before the drama returns to ABC on Sept. 25. View a deleted scene below, and watch Rayna (Connie Britton) take an extraordinarily long time to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Speaking to EW for our Fall TV preview issue on stands Friday, Nashville exec producer Dee Johnson offered a couple of teases for the formerly happy couple of Rayna and Teddy (Eric Close) in season 2: She will — surprise! — survive that car crash with Deacon (Charles Esten), have a “love/mostly hate” relationship with the hot new head of her record label (played by Oliver Hudson), and perhaps get involved with a country star whose stature in the business is even bigger than hers (played by Will Chase). And Teddy, well, last we saw him, he’d just found out that Peggy (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) was pregnant.  “He’s not very happy about it,” Johnson said, laughing. “It continues to be a story point for them moving forward, and he and his whole family have to wrestle with how best to handle that.”

'Scandal': Watch a steamy deleted scene between Fitz and Olivia -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Scandal.jpg

If it’s been too long since you’ve seen a hot kiss between Scandal‘s Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and Olivia (Kerry Washington), you’re welcome: We’ve got exclusive video of a deleted scene that includes one from the extras on the season 2 DVD, which is out today. You might recall the election night lip-lock from the montage played in the explosive episode “Nobody Likes Babies,” when, SPOILER ALERT, dying Verna (Debra Mooney) explained to Olivia why she’d hired an assassin to shoot Fitz.

The clip is an example of why Scandal, in some fans’ eyes, has finally earned Goldwyn a pardon for what his character did to Patrick Swayze’s in 1990’s Ghost. “I’ve gotten so many tweets about that, saying, ‘Finally, I’ve forgiven you for killing Sam Wheat.’ So I’m grateful, after 20 years,” Goldwyn says, laughing. “I was surprised that there were so many people who had yet to forgive me, because I’d forgiven myself a long time ago.” But the episode itself is one that shows why loving Fitz is … let’s call it “complicated”: This is also the hour in which our fictional president both killed Verna by removing her oxygen mask after she told him his election had been rigged and that she was going to come clean about it before she died, and, after learning Olivia’s involvement, delivered this cold line: “Don’t wait for me. I don’t know what I was thinking: Screwing your mistress is one thing, but marrying her? That’s political suicide, really. I mean, you believe that my presidency is more important than anything else, right? You must. You worked so hard to get me here.” Below, Goldwyn talks about those bombshells and looks ahead to season 3.

'The Walking Dead': Watch an exclusive deleted scene with Lori as a zombie!

Okay, let’s be honest: Rick Grimes went a little nuts last season on The Walking Dead after his wife Lori died. He started hearing things and then seeing things — things that weren’t actually there. But, as a new exclusive deleted scene from the upcoming Walking Dead season 3 DVD/Blu-ray set shows, it could have been even worse. Much worse.

Remember back in episode 10 (“Home”) when Rick had himself a tender moment with a vision of his former wife in a white dress out on a bridge past the prison yard? Well, a new deleted scene shows how the scene was originally shot — and it seems that tender moment actually turned quite terrifying. After making out for a bit — because who doesn’t love making out with hallucinations from time to time — Rick pulls back to see that his beautiful wife is now a significantly less kissable zombie version of his beautiful wife. That’s right, Sarah Wayne Callies got zombified! READ FULL STORY

'Fridays': What really happened the night Andy Kaufman melted down on live TV

fridays-andy-kaufman-02.jpg

Andy Kaufman was famous for taking things too far. He wrestled women! And taunted those who could easily twist him into a pretzel. With Andy, you simply never knew what was real and what was fake. In February 1981, he guest-starred on Fridays, the short-lived live sketch show that was trying to become ABC’s answer to Saturday Night Live. (Michael Richards and Larry David were among the talent that worked on the show for three seasons.)  In one of the show’s most memorable moments, Kaufman dead-stopped in the middle of a live skit about smoking pot, claiming that he wasn’t able to play a stoned character. “I feel stupid,” he said, as the audience chuckled awkwardly. But his scene partners didn’t much appreciate his refusal to stick to the script, and when Richards tossed the cue cards on Kaufman’s lap, television audiences were treated to a scuffle before the show finally cut to commercial. It was pure Andy Kaufman.

It was also completely staged.

In The Best of Fridays, which arrives on DVD tomorrow, the cast and crew look back on that night, and admit who else was in on the ruse. Click below for the skit, titled “Marijuana,” and then an exclusive clip from the DVD that clarifies who knew what and when. READ FULL STORY

Seth Green talks 'Robot Chicken DC Comics Special' DVD release (and Batman's ill-fitted briefs)

The first Robot Chicken DC Comics Special just hit DVD and Blu-ray, and along with an epic battle between the Justice League and the Legion of Doom (with Aquaman at its center), you get two hours of extras that include a making-of featurette, cast and crew commentaries, outtakes, deleted sketches, and a tour of DC Entertainment led by Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns.

Robot Chicken co-creator Seth Green, who directed the special, chats with us below. Look for scoop on the second DC Comics Special, which starts lensing next month, in the issue of Entertainment Weekly on stands July 19, the same day as Robot Chicken‘s Comic-Con panel (Indigo Room at Hilton Bayfront, 3:15 p.m.).

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: There’s a lot of talk in the commentary about Batman’s briefs in the first special. Will they be fixed for the second?
SETH GREEN: Yes, I’m gonna fix those pants for the second special. That was really hard to take in the first one. [Laughs] I didn’t realize it until we had it cut together and it was too late. There was no going back. He had these incredibly bizarre high-waisted, French-cut panties. I just don’t know how that slipped through.

'Fringe' season 5 DVD: J.J. Abrams and company discuss bringing closure to the sci-fi saga -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Fringe-Team.jpg

A series finale is like a laboratory-conceived psychotic porcupine monster: It has a very long tail, and it will make you cry. Nearly five months after Fringe said goodbye by sending Walter Bishop (John Noble) into the far future to save Peter (Joshua Jackson), Olivia (Anna Torv) and the rest of humanity (thanks!) by changing history, the cult classic squirrels back into our field of vision one more time to drop its last DVD and take a bow.
