DVD rumblings: Heroes, Cavemen

This Heroes drought has gone on long enough! Unfortunately, it will go on a little longer, as the third season of the hit drama won't get started again until the fall.

But fear not, Heroes fans. Universal Studios Home Entertainment today revealed that season two of Heroes will be released worldwide on Blu-ray and DVD on August 26. And if that weren't enough, season one of the show will get the high-definition treatment the same day and be released on Blu-ray as well. Universal did not mention what extras would be included in any of the editions.

Blu-ray DVDs, which require a Blu-ray player to play, offer crisper, clearer images, enhanced sound, and interactive menus. The format, created by Sony, beat out Toshiba's HD-DVD in the next-generation DVD wars when Toshiba announced it would no longer offer support for its product.

While Heroes was a no-brainer to release on DVD, other shows aren't exactly obvious choices. A clear example of this is ABC's Cavemen, which has (undeservedly) been the critics' whipping boy all season long.

Thankfully, the show looks like it will get a chance on DVD (even though it never really got a chance on television thanks to bigoted hatred). New York Magazine's Vulture blog staffers--who are unabashed Cavemen fans--did some digging on the inside and report that ABC is planning to release all 13 episodes, including the seven that haven't yet aired, on DVD.

Though Cavemen hasn't been officially canceled, prognosticators are betting that it will be soon.

Which DVD you will be in line for? (Cavemen! Cavemen! Cavemen!)

Cavemen is actually airing here in Australia and we are up to ep 10, it gets better after it was cancelled in the US. But since I've been recording it I'm not planning on buying the DVD any time soon.

Cavemen is an amazingly funny comedy and so I'd just like to tell DoctorWho44 to masticate bovine genitals until autonomic reproductive function occurs.

I'm excited to get a chance to watch CAVEMEN, and it's good to find out that HEROES S2 will be released on DVD, and not just Blu-Ray, which I originally thought.

Caveman was great, and I'm glad you folks have stuck by it.

Cavemen was funny. If you didn't think so, you probably just could never get around the fact that it was based on a commercial. If you can see beyond that, it was funny. If 2 and a half men can still be hanging around, espcially after the reviews and ratings for it's first season, there must be room for Cavemen.

Although I didn't watch Cavemen religiously, I still thought it was a pretty funny and entertaining show. I think it should have been given a chance.

I hope Cavemen isn't really canceled (they never really gave it a chance), but either way, I want the DVD - in Bluray format if possible, but DVD is fine if not! That show was grossly underrated by all the silly haters...

heroes season 1 finally jumped down to 20 bucks but season 2 for anything more than 30 would be ridiculous. such a short season. and no web comics either. and a very bad story set up. season 3 has to rescue the show.

August 26th for Heroes Season 2 DVD?!?! Wah! Why such a long wait? You'd think it would be out sooner because of the strike! *goes and pouts* Looks like the withdrawal will only get worse before it gets better.
