Star Trek, Ray Donovan And More From Paramount Home Media Distribution In June

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Paramount Home Media Distribution has the next wave of Star Trek: The Next Generation Blu-ray product offerings ready for delivery on June 3.   

Fans will have the next feature-length, double-episode compilation to enjoy —  Star Trek: The Next Generation - Chain of Command — as well as a six-disc collection of all 26 episodes in hi-def from Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season Six.

In Star Trek: The Next Generation - Chain of Command Captain Picard is taken prisoner by the Cardassians while on an away mission and as a result falls into the hands of zealot Gul Madred (played perfectly by David Warner).   In a cat-and-mouse game Picard is repeatedly tortured to give up vital information on fleet defenses … his ability to hold out reaches his absolute limits as the process wears on.

No word on bonus features for the feature film, however the sixth season includes episode specific commentary options, a series “Mission Logs,” a blooper reel, deleted scenes and more.

The following week, June 10, Blu-ray (3 discs) and DVD (4 discs) sets of Ray Donovan: Season One, teaming Liev Schreiber with Jon Voight (he won the Golden Globe for his performance in this series) a son-father combo of somewhat shady repute.

Liev Schreiber is the title character, Ray Donovan, a “fixer” for a high profile law firm run by Ezra Goodman (Elliott Gould) and his partner Lee Drexler (Peter Jacobson) … their clients are rich and stupid (think: sex, drugs and … other stuff).   Ray can use charm or a baseball bat, it doesn’t matter as long as the job gets done and the latest “problem” goes away.

If that’s not enough, his estranged father, Mickey (Jon Voight), is fresh out of prison (20 years for murder) and would just as soon see his son dead.  Throw in some equally dysfunctional brothers and a wife (Paula Malcomson) “with a plan” and you quickly learn that Ray has little time for sleep or mistakes.

Also on the crime front from Paramount in June are three Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) double features.  

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph TribbeySet for delivery on June 10 are Perry Mason Movie Collection Double Feature #1 (teaming Perry Mason Returns (Della Street/Barbara Hale is framed for murder) with The Case of the Notorious Nun), Perry Mason Movie Collection Double Feature #2 (the twin bill of The Case of Shooting Star and The Case of Lost Love) and Perry Mason Movie Collection Double Feature #3 (and from 1987 we have both The Case of Sinister Spirit and The Case of Murdered Madam).

On the comedy front, Tosh.0 returns on June 17 with 21 hilarious episode in the three-disc DVD and double-disc Blu-ray offering of Tosh.0: Collas & Exposed Arms.  On the same date look for the DVD debut of director Jay Chapman’s stand-up film presentation titled, Sinbad: Make Me Wanna Holla.
