Jamestown, Season 3 DVD
-----It's boom time in Jamestown, and Virginia promises riches and freedom for the English settlers. Jocelyn's destroyed plantation may have regrown but old feuds remain; she plans revenge, but Yeardley will not be dislodged without a fight. Profits in the colony bring the watchful eye of the King of England to focus on Jamestown, and the arrival of an enigmatic man in town forces many to attempt to cover the tracks of their past indiscretions. Amongst the conflict, love grows, and even Jocelyn is presented with a future she never thought possible. Maria, Pedro, and their fellow Angolans fight to find a place for themselves in the colony, but can no longer deny the tyranny they live under and the unspeakable reality of what this means for their future. The Sharrows have formed a deep connection with the Native Americans; Henry has taken a Pamunkey wife, and Silas lives with them in exile. His friendship with the warrior Chacrow is tested, and he finds himself at the center of the gravest clash between the English and the Native Americans. These conflicts herald a new chapter in Virginia's history, which will shape the New World for centuries to come.

EXTRAS: in progress and will be announced at a later date
-----celebrates the 25th anniversary of the self-proclaimed "black sheep" of the Star Trek spin-off series. Often described as dark and edgy, Deep Space Nine was maligned by many fans and critics at the time as a show that did not fit into Gene Roddenberry's vision of the future. But now, two decades after it left the airwaves, Deep Space Nine is being re-discovered by new, younger fans through streaming services, and championed by those who stuck by it from the start. Through extensive interviews and behind-the-scenes stories with the cast and crew, this full-length documentary, helmed by directors Ira Steven Behr (original Deep Space Nine showrunner) and David Zappone (The Captains, For The Love Of Spock), delves into the newfound resurgence of this oft-overlooked and polarizing sci-fi series, presents footage from the show remastered for the first time ever in High Definition, and reassembles the writing staff to break what would be an imaginary future episode of Deep Space Nine. The EXCLUSIVE SPECIAL EDITION contains a second Blu-Ray disc only available from Shout! Factory's online store, which contains additional material (to be announced), and is limited to 1,500 copies.
**NOTE: this release does not contain episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, but nonetheless we decided to include it with this week's Roundup as a bonus title, since it will be of interest to many of our readers.

Created by Mort Lewis and Sam Shayon, and produced by Hal Roach, Jr., Public Defender also provided directorial assignments for veterans such as Erle C. Kenton and up-and-comers like Budd Boetticher. This 5-disc collection marks the first official home video release of all 43 second season episodes of this popular anthology series, every one culled from original Hal Roach Studio masters.
