2008 was a blockbuster year for DVD releases, with super heroes and evil villains propelling movies to the top of the charts. Our favorite DVDs of the year include Chris Nolan's incredible The Dark Knight
. Heath Ledger's final performance led an all-star cast in the biggest theatrical release that we have seen in decades.
2008 also served as a testing ground for quirky, independent and thought-provoking films. From Lars And The Real Girl
to last year's award-winner, Juno
, our DVD collections expanded along with our tastes. Knock-out new television shows like Mad Men: Season One
arrived in stylish packaging. Forgotten TV gems, like Britain's Spaced: The Complete Series
, made us wish we had tuned in earlier.
