Nikita, Cougar Town

New DVDs Tuesday, Aug. 30



Nikita: Season 1
Trained superspy/assassin Nikita (Maggie Q) vows to bring down the secret governmental group that made her, with the inside help of a new recruit (Lyndsy Fonesca); bikini brawls, gunplay and meaningful The CW looks ensue. (Warner Bros.)

Cougar Town: Season 2
Six friends in Florida cul-de-sac drink wine all day, never seem to go to work, sleep around a lot, have the occasional touching moment and make inside jokes about the title Cougar Town—in other words, high comedy! (ABC Studios)

The Devil’s Teardrop
An FBI agent (Natasha Henstridge) tracking a serial killer enlists the help of a troubled handwriting analyst (Tom Everett Scott) embroiled in a custody battle with his ex-wife (Rena Sofer). How’s it all relate? Hey, it’s a Lifetime movie! (Sony)

Once again, a gang of pretty-idiot 20-somethings head into the woods, only to be terrorized by a gigantic bird-monster thing. When will people learn to stay the hell out of the woods? And why didn’t the bird get a cool name like Sharktopus? (Rhino)

A soon-retiring ’ho (Viva Bianca) and a new teen-runaway ’ho (Hanna Mangan-Lawrence) endure a hellish night on the mean streets of Sydney, Australia, on the run from sadistic drug dealers and, one would assume, kangaroos. (IFC Films)
