"Falling Skies: Complete Third Season"
What's It About? Aliens have invaded the Earth! Several types of 'em, actually, and they're no joke. Noah Wyle stars as a former history professor named Tom who ends up leading a ragtag group of humans in the alien resistance. The third season sees Tom as the newly elected president of whatever's left of the US, but what about the old prez? And what will come of Tom's alien alliances?
IN or OUT: "Falling Skies" has gotten pretty decent reviews, but sci-fi fans aren't totally on board with the narrative. Your mileage may vary.
"In the Blood"
What's It About? MMA mega-star Gina Carano ("Haywire") and Cam Gigandet ("Twilight") star as newlyweds celebrating their nuptials in the Caribbean. Their honeymoon takes a turn for the butt-kickingly weird when Derek (Gigandet) goes missing and Ava (Carano) has to pull a full-on "Taken" to save him.
IN or OUT: Carano kicks butt, but we could do without the lesser "Twilight" dude. Apparently, critics agreed.
"Pretty Little Liars: Complete Fourth Season"
What's It About? High school is brutal in this TV series about a clique of popular, pretty high school girls whose friend has disappeared. The remaining four gals are tormented by a mysterious person identified as "A," who is slowly revealing all their secrets...
IN or OUT: "PLL" has scores of diehard fans -- maybe you're one of them.
What's It About? It's about the same thing as the 1987 original: A police officer who dies in the line of duty is turned into a prototype for a RoboCop by the evil OmniCorp. Joel Kinnaman stars as the man inside of the machine.
EXCLUSIVE: Go behind-the-scenes on the construction of RoboCop (VIDEO)
"Son of God"

IN or OUT: It got a critical drubbing, but if it's your bag, who are we to judge?
"True Blood: Complete Sixth Season"
What's It About? It's an all-out war between the humans and the vampires, and guess who's caught in the middle? SOOOKEH! So much happens that it's hard to keep track of -- just know there's lots of blood and nudity.
IN or OUT: Audio commentary, featurettes, and more make this a good investment for diehard Trubies.
"Workaholics: Season Four"
What's It About? Blake, Adam, and Anders are three slacker dudes who party and rage and do drugs and have menial jobs. That's about it.
IN or OUT: This is on Comedy Central practically all the time, but hey, do your thing.

What's It About? A young and babely Colin Farrell stars as the King of Macedonia, Angelina Jolie as his hot mama Olympias, Anthony Hopkins as Ptolemy, Jared Leto as Alexander's BFF Hephaestion, and Rosario Dawson as Alexander's wife Roxana.
IN or OUT: Oliver Stone can't stop futzing around with his historical epic, although he's assured us this is the definitive version. This 10th anniversary edition has a bounty of extras, including two audio commentaries by Stone himself. However, it got terrible reviews.
"The Outsiders" (Complete Novel Edition)
What's It About? Francis Ford Coppola's classic coming-of-age drama stars Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, and a host of other actors in this adaptation of the novel by S.E. Hinton.
IN or OUT: This is the first time "The Outsiders" has been on Blu-ray. Plus, there are plenty of extras, including audio commentary by Coppola and, separately, the film's stars. Why not?
