An indirect spin-off from the veteran series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (and a direct spin-off from CSI: Miami during an episode in which several of the CSI: New York characters made their first appearances), CSI: New York was the third series created for the ever-popular CSI franchise, finding its own base of loyal fans that watched and loved the show for an impressive 9-season run. Out now in a 55-disc DVD set, CSI: New York – The Complete Series includes all 197 episodes of the series along with a healthy dose of bonus features. Among the nine hours(!) of extras are behind-the-scenes featurettes, deleted scenes, gag reels, and audio commentaries. (The set also features the crossover episodes produced in conjunction with CSI and CSI: Miami.) Fans can grab the complete collection on Amazon, currently priced at $86.72.

My fair Lady 4KMy Fair Lady, the beloved adaptation of the Broadway stage hit, stars Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle, a sassy, working-class London street vendor, and Rex Harrison as the elitist Professor Higgins, who attempts to turn Eliza into a sophisticated lady through proper tutoring. But, when the humble flower girl blossoms into the toast of London society, her teacher may have a lesson or two to learn himself. Winner of eight Academy Awards*, including Best Picture, MY FAIR LADY also won the Best Picture Golden Globe, and was selected for the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry. – from Paramount

Available on May 25th on 4K Ultra HD for the first time, the newest release of My Fair Lady features the film produced from a recent 8K film transfer as well as a making-of special, the 1963 production kick-off dinner, the LA premiere and British premieres, production tests, an interview with Rex Harrison, and more. It should be noted that this bonus lineup is the same as that on the previously released 50th Anniversary Edition blu-ray from 2015 (so if you have that one on the shelf already you won’t be gaining anything new in that regard), but for a film as visually striking as this one (just think of the crowd at Ascot!), it may be worth your while simply to have the long-awaited 4K presentation it has always deserved. You can pre-order your own on Amazon for $19.99.

Mission Impossible : 25th Anniversary EditionIn Mission Impossible, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is a top-secret agent, framed for the deaths of his espionage team. Fleeing from government assassins, breaking into the CIA’s most impenetrable vault, clinging to the roof of a speeding bullet train, Hunt races like a burning fuse to stay one step ahead of his pursuers…and draw one step closer to discovering the shocking truth. – from Paramount

Mission Impossible: The 25th Anniversary Edition is out now on Blu-ray. The set showcases a newly remastered presentation of the film and a respectable lineup of extras, including behind-the-scenes featurettes, interviews with the cast and crew, a spotlight on the film’s climactic train sequence, a tour of the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C., agent profiles for the film’s characters, and more. It’s important to say, though, that (aside from a gallery of the original trailers for the first six Mission: Impossible films and a collectible Impossible Mission Force car decal) this release provides the same collection of bonus features from the 2018 4K version (as well as the 2007 Blu-ray release), so if you already have the 4K version on the shelf you really aren’t gaining anything new from this one. If you don’t, though, and you feel like this version is a good match for your library needs, you can can snag a copy on Amazon for $12.99.
