Desperate Housewives:

The Complete First Season

[Buena Vista] $60

The set of discs for last year's water cooler series has loads of extras that include extended versions of six episodes, commentary with creator Marc Cherry and director Larry Shaw; the housewives discussing their favorite scenes; several featurettes, deleted scenes and bloopers. A clever short features Oprah Win- frey as the new neighbor on Wisteria Lane.


[Criterion] $40

Both director Mike Leigh and star David Thewlis took home top honors at the 1993 Cannes Film Festival for this uncompromising drama about a wanderer named Johnny. The two-disc set includes interviews with Leigh, conducted by author Will Self, and with writer-director Neil LaBute; and the early Leigh short film The Short and Curlies.
