THIS WEEK’S TWIN PEEKS:

BECK: EPISODES 19-21 & 22-24

2013; $34.99/set; UR

Thanks to everyone who wrote in telling us how much they enjoyed the relatively unknown Danish drama “Borgen” we introduced last month. Here’s a Swedish detective show you’ll also be rabid fans of in short order. Peter Haber stars as the titular and somewhat “Columbo”-ish detective. A man seemingly bereft of social skills whose only goals in life are to put the bad guys away — which he does methodically — and be a better father to his adult daughter (a work in progress). His partner, Mikael Persbrandt, is just the opposite: a flashy renegade cop who eschews protocol, literally torturing suspects to get to the truth. Individually they are trouble, together they are unstoppable. New to video: Episode sets 19-21 and 22-24, though all 18 earlier episodes are also available in various sets. Subtitled and highly addictive.

BORGEN: SEASON 2

2013; $44.98-$49.98; UR

To everyone who’s been clamoring for more of this Danish “West Wing,” written large across the icy Nordic sky … leave us alone, already! The 24-hour press-corps continues to hound the first female Prime Minister (Sidse Babett Knudsen), now a divorced mother of two, even as international wars encroach on their fragile sovereignty, threatening the delicate alliances that keep everything afloat. But it is blonde hottie Birgitte Hjort Sørensen — providing much of the welcome Nordic nudity — who remains her deadliest foe: a crafty newswoman who is not above screwing up a crisis when there is nothing else to report. Even more compelling than Season 1.

ALIEN CRASH AT ROSWELL: THE UFO TRUTH LOST IN TIME

2013; $14.98-$16.98; UR

These wonderfully hokey docs from Reality Entertainment remind us of Leonard Nimoy’s old “In Search Of” series — quite a compliment! Here we follow Major Jesse Marcel, “commander of the most technologically advanced bomb group in the world,” who “discovered” a downed UFO in the New Mexico desert in 1947, following a “harrowing and record-breaking storm.” You get the idea: Lots of hyperbole and overstatement with flashy, colorful graphics. Of course we liked it! Big dumb fun on a budget.

BEAUTY AND THE LEAST

2012; $19.98-$24.98; UR

After spending 12 years stoned out of his gourd in community college, Ben (Ben Banks) falls hard for lithe barista Mischa Barton (there’s a lot of that going around). When he uncovers her long-hidden secret, he sets out with friends to right a very serious wrong and maybe become an adult in the process. Not terrific by any means, but a change of pace for writer/director Bryce Clark, who writes for “Yo Gabba Gabba!” Aka “Ben Banks.”

HANSEL & GRETEL GET BAKED

2013; $21.98-$29.98; UR

Lara Flynn Boyle is hilarious as the cannibal granny who lures teenagers to her home with killer weed, then eats their flesh to grow young and beautiful. But the actual stars are Michael Welch and Molly C. Quinn, sibs who discover her evil deeds, though no one will believe them. A loving homage to low-rent stoner/slasher movies with cameos by scream-vets Lochlyn Munro and Yancy Butler. Gangs of fun.

JACK TAYLOR: SET 1

2010; $34.98-$49.98; UR

This excellent British private-eye show soars for two reasons: first, the imposing, breathtaking lands of western Ireland, and second, Jack Taylor (Iain Glen, “Game of Thrones,” “Downton Abbey”), as mule-headed and ornery a drunken ex-cop as ever who brawled his way out of a pub. But Jack is the perfect man to wrestle the truth from the rugged crags of Galway. In this set, he’s on the trail of serial murderer, a vigilante group and — our favorite story — a sadistic nun nicknamed “Lucifer.” Beauty, intrigue, fisticuffs, humor and the best of the Ol’ Sod in equal measure. Highly recommended.

LESSER BLESSED

2012; $20.98-$26.98; R

This Canadian flick is a minor masterpiece. A First Nations teen (the Canadian equivalent of “Native American”) embodies every young person who ever felt they didn’t fit in. He pulls together with two friends to unearth a dark secret from his past. We won’t say more of the plot, but the real reason to watch this is the relationship between the three teens: It’s as if you, the viewer, are invisible and privy to an intimate world where they are free to be vulnerable and frightened, each gaining courage from the others. One of the best films we’ve ever seen; a perfect indie that succeeds by keeping its story simple but heartfelt and, above all, real. With Benjamin Bratt in a pivotal role.

THE CALL

2013; $19.98-$40.98; R

This Halle Berry/Abigail Breslin vehicle didn’t exactly burn up the box office, but there’s a lot to like. When Breslin gets stuffed in a car truck, abducted, she’s smart enough to keep her cell phone hidden until she can call 911. Berry, still recovering from an emergency gone horribly wrong, is the operator who answers the call. The filmmakers unnecessarily throw in incest and gore to give it an R rating, and Berry’s guilt-trip is more hindrance than help, but the two central actresses crank up the tension while Morris Chestnut and others keep the pot simmering. We liked it.

THE INCREDIBLE BURT WONDERSTONE

2013; $14.98-$35.98; PG-13

Steve Carell is the titular magician, part of a Siegfried and Roy-like Vegas team with Steve Buscemi. Once rulers of The Strip, today the two can’t stand each other, and, to make matters worse, their livelihood is threatened by street stunter Jim Carrey. Only an over-the-top stunt of their own can save their act, but has time simply passed them by? This isn’t a “bad” film, per se; there are plenty of laughs and enough dumb physical gags to keep things upbeat. But with this kind of talent, we were expecting so much more. Worth a look; with Olivia Wilde, James Gandolfini, Alan Arkin, Jay Mohr, Brad Garrett and more.

The prices for these movies

By lanarina12
The prices for these movies are so low, I will buy them all except Lesser Blessed because I saw this movie already. I costs only $20.98-$26.98 which is a very good deal, when I was searching for Cassandra Stone dresses on their website I saw other offers and the prices ranged from 35$ and higher.

By BenHCarson
Love this product; I am an African American woman with natural 4a/b hair. The recipes are incredibly difficult and contain wasted steps that only Rube Goldberg himself would use. This will make the bobbin tightly wound (other brands differ, but this is what worked for me). The Brother 1034D Serger is very rough. This bosch router is just great. The CD alone is worth the price of the book. The additional accessories made a it possible to take it out of the box and get to work in a minutes. This item has excellent value with that low price. in my opinion everyone should have one of these disks to clean their computer every no an again; great price for a convenient disk You can use the included ear pieces to get the tightest fit and that eliminates as much noise as possible. my wife loves this extremely pasty stuff and it makes her happy.

EASY READ, VERY LOGICAL LAY

By BenHCarson
EASY READ, VERY LOGICAL LAY OUT. something to consider. Being a big Tim Burton fan, I was not disappointed. Vascularity is obvious and I power through heavy leg days. This one works the best. took a long time to get this, Not sure why but I was ready to call and say we didn't get it I will be switching to a similar color in a padded bumper. NOT WORTH $115.00 FOR THESE PIECES OF JUNK. I am reminded of an outstanding pictorial history of the Lincoln assassination (Lincoln's Assassins, by Swanson and Weinberg). He is never short on references. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, is because I wish there were more interactive toys (maybe something with lights?).

The drawback from most of

By BenHCarson
The drawback from most of them is that they're all subbed and you have to read for three hours. If someone asked me how it could be improved upon, it would be a difficult question to answer. There are countless less-expensive alternatives to Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy II, but this paper not only gives the best initial results for printing photos, it resists fading much better. I bought this kettle on 10/18/09 and use it in the morning and at night for tea. Very pleased with looks and function on rifle, elevation is a little hard to dial in due to pellet drop. Starts to show - that battery's low, flashing means - will effect results. r at the same time.Is this a good every day or formal cologne?in my opinion an excellent everyday cologne,it smells pleasant and relaxing.I think Burberry is more on the suave side on a date night or around the wife,the scent tries to be a smoother customer than something more muscular like Polo Original(green bottle with gold cap) or HUGO's Boss Number One,last thing you want to do is set off your date's allergies...so it's fair to call Burberry neutral.I can't really comment on the life span of Burberry,it's your typical cologne depending on if applied immediately after a shower,if you've perspired a lot,or your skin is dry it can last 4 to 8 hours.In closing there's way too many colognes these days and they become outdated so quickly,all stores need to do is take them off their shelves when something newer comes out and they're still made but they lose their popularity streak.I can't recommend Burberry strictly as a cologne for everyone because tastes differ,but for a thirties price range cologne?it's pret Moreover, Arruda and co-author Kirsten Dixon, are successful role models for every facet of personal branding. Gives me the boost to have a better performance. This Breville >No cuts on my hand. I purchased a White sewing machine.

I couldn't say one bad thing

By BenHCarson
I couldn't say one bad thing about it and Amazon came through on the shipping much sooner than I thought. I've only used this roaster twice since buying it... I mix it with my coffee in the morning, water throughout the day, amd milk at night. Aciman expects us to accept as true some issues that are really very much up for discussion: Even if you accept bisexuality as a valid psychological condition (I, and many highly respected psychologists don't) are we really expected to believe that Oliver, at 24, can have a summer of desperate longing after a 17 year old boy, and engage in wild and admittedly fulfilling sex with him, and then return quietly to his fiancée, marry her, have kids, and live happily ever after? And then, 20 years later, calmly invite the guy to have dinner with his wife and kids (without being portrayed by either Aciman or his narrator (the boy now close to 40) as a callous, arrogant bastard, or as a self deceiving hypocrite? Or are we to believe that the 40 year old narrator, even though he regards the incidents he recounts as pivotal experiences in his life, can enter into full empathy with his 17 year old self, without a trace of irony or emotional distance? Also, how can he remember, after 20 years, not only incidents, but al Maybe I was expecting too much. Even if this is your first juicer purchase I would go with the Omega and avoid having to waste $100 before you realize that buying a centrifugal juicer was a bad decision. This is my second child and he's already 19 months old, so I was not about to make more work for myself than absolutely necessary. Will NEVER buy this product again!! I have only printed from the tray, I have not tried the manual feed. They call this a froth separator?" But, it really does work! I can pour a clear glass of juice and the froth stays in the pitcher! - The juicer is stainless steel with clear and black plastic. I was sooooooo very, very anxious for these to come and now I am sooooooo disappointed.

By BenHCarson
While I would not go to the medical extremes that she does in order to stay healthy, for both financial and personal reasons, I appreciate knowing the myriad options available. Just wash/rinse them with water inside and out and they'll be fine :) This label does the trick. It explains what a brand is, what branding can do for us, and how to achieve it in small, yet substantially important steps. Getting a tire to the right pressure couldn't be easier. Overall the product is great and it was extremely clear. This item was as described on Amazon.com. Well that might be so but I'll never know using this one. Our cat is getting on in age and has been having digestive issues. The cartridge is easy to pull out and replace. I have became a fan of the original one, so I purchased the 2.0.

"Yo Gabba Gabba!" Aka "Ben Banks."

I want to know the meaning of the phrase "Yo Gabba Gabba!" Aka "Ben Banks." In the film beauty and the least. I also want to buy it. almost similar title beauty and the beast. xamthone plus

They are very strong though

By BenHCarson
They are very strong though a hurt a little when you take them off but its well worth the very minor discomfort it'd cause. We installed it and had it running in less than 10 minutes. Stress/minor illness/fever/exercise before testing/ time of day/eating....all can affect results. I would definitely recommend this pitcher and I would also suggest that after you fill the pitcher with water, allow all the water to filter through to the bottom of the pitcher before you try to throw some out into a glass, I think this will help to avoid spills. Spirulina Capsules Online Bumble And Bumble Thickening Shampoo is excellent. I've been happy with the picture quality and the durability of the camera. While using this product I was also helping myself with Optimum Nutrition Whey Gold and Optimum Nutrition Casein proteins.

By BenHCarson
I've had this for 6 months or so. The price doesn't justify the quality of the product. I've since been using it for shaving my legs... I bought this to spice up the moment and trust me it did not disappoint.. Spirulina For Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Spirulina Sfatul Medicului Chlorella Spirulina. Read more I would love to compare this to a more expensive model but for now it gets the job done. It is especially nice to be able to take our baby's temp while she is sleeping. It's better if you order the cartridge online because it's much cheaper and the delivery it's free.

By BenHCarson
We haven't had a "2-fer" in years and years and YEARS!! Not sure why the device broke so quickly for the other reviewers, but so far...we're at 2...and counting, with no visible signs of structural stress. One of the great assets are the sudoku grids of different levels that are available as a distraction. We've been using this wash for a few months now. I was amazed at how quickly and how well this product worked... Einnahme Spirulina Presslinge Bkf Spirulina MPLOA Spirulina. Learn more Thrilled about the product but not about the price. It's just been a month, so let's see. Thanks Lindstrom for a great read.
