ER kicked off its second series of high-intensity drama and wry humour by introducing a character who would turn out to be a long-term member of--and a major irritation for--the inner-city Chicago hospital staff. After Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards) is promoted to attending physician, the door is open for a new chief resident, and in walks Kerry Weaver (Laura Innes), who wastes no time ruffling everyone's feathers with her strict managerial style and subtle putdowns. One of her prime targets, Susan Lewis (Sherry Stringfield), struggles to balance her personal and professional life when she has to take care of her abandoned infant niece. The Lewis character grows the most during the series, along with second-year student John Carter (Noah Wylie), whose natural compassion gives way to professional ambition following the model of his teacher, the ambitious and self-absorbed Peter Benton (Eriq LaSalle). Benton angles for a position with a renowned cardiovascular surgeon (Ron Rifkin) and has to deal with the fallout from a relationship with physician's assistant Jeannie Boulet (Gloria Reubens), yet he also starts to show some glimmers of humanity. Greene has his own problems trying to manage a long-distance marriage, while nurse Carol Hathaway (Julianna Margulies) bounces back from her aborted first-series marriage attempt to start a new relationship with paramedic Shep (Ron Eldard, who also became Margulies' real-life partner). She buys her first house and enjoys an entire series out of the companionship of Doug Ross (George Clooney), who as always runs into problems with his cowboy style and philandering ways. But just when he's finally driven himself out of ER, he has to go play hero when he finds a boy pinned in a storm drain in an episode that was nominated for six Emmys and remains one of the, excuse the pun, high-water marks of the series. That and such episodes as "The Healers," which deals with the aftermath of Shep's daring fire rescue, prove that when ER was at its best, it was as good as anything on television. Guest appearances include Lucy Liu as the mother of an AIDS-stricken boy, Red Buttons as an elderly husband, Joanna Gleason as an infomercial producer and Jake Lloyd (The Phantom Menace) as the son of a prostitute. DVD bonus features are a little lighter than on the first-series set, consisting of a commentary track (by co-executive producer Mimi Leder, editor Randy Jon Morgan and Laura Innes) on the series' first episode and "The Healers", a nine-minute spotlight on "Hell and High Water", an 11-minute piece on the series' multiple directors, 14 minutes of outtakes and a gag reel. --David Horiuchi

ER's fifth season was marked by the departure of one of the series' core characters and the entry of a new one. It opens with third-year medical student Lucy Knight (Kellie Martin) being introduced to the layout and members of the ER (we learn Maria Bello's character, Anna Del Amico, has left), which also serves as a shorthand way of introducing new viewers to the series. She makes a strong impression immediately and reminds John Carter (Noah Wyle) of himself, but before long the two find themselves at odds. Elizabeth Korday (Alex Kingston) has to start over as an intern in order to stay at County General and in the U.S., and gradually ends her relationship with Peter Benton (Eriq La Salle), who learns that his son is deaf. Kerry Weaver (Laura Innes) tries for the position of full-time chief resident, but is beaten out by an East Coast hotshot, Amanda Lee (Mare Winningham), who turns out to have an interest in Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards). Greene starts to ride along with the paramedics, and Doug Ross (George Clooney) has settled down (finally) with nurse Carol Hathaway (Julianna Margulies). He's still on probation from the risky detox procedure he used in the fourth season, but he seems to be on his best behavior until a mother (Valerie Mahaffey) brings in her ALD-stricken son. Ross breaks protocol again but this time threatens to bring down the whole ER with him in the season's high point, the climactic two-parter "Storm." Other cast members and guest stars include Penny Johnson (24) as a nurse practitioner who joins Hathaway's clinic, Djimon Honsou as a Nigerian custodian with a secret, Marlee Matlin as Benton's sign language teacher, and TV Tae-Bo instructor Billy Blanks as a Tae-Bo instructor who teaches Lucy how to deliver a good swift kick. --David Horiuchi

The first sound-film by one of the greatest of all filmmaker's Vampyr offers a sensual immediacy that few if any works of cinema can claim to match. Legendary director Carl Theodor Dreyer leads the viewer as though guided in a trance through a realm akin to a wakingdream a zone positioned somewhere between reality and the supernatural.Traveller Allan Gray (arrestingly depicted by Julian West aka the secretive real-life Baron Nicolas de Gunzburg) arrives at a countryside inn seemingly beckoned by haunted forces. His growing acquaintance with the family who reside there soon opens up a network of uncanny associations between the dead and the living of ghostly lore and demonology which pull Gray ever deeper into an unsettling and upsetting mystery. At its core: troubled Gisle chaste daughter and sexual incarnation portrayed by the great cursed Sybille Schmitz (Diary of a Lost Girl and inspiration for Fassbinder's Veronika Voss.) Before the candles of Vampyr exhaust themselves Allan Gray and the viewer alike come eye-to-eye with Fate in the face of dear dying Sybille in the blasphemed bodies of horrific bat-men inthe charged and mortal act of asphyxiation eye-to-eye then with Death the supreme vampire.

Suspects: Sir Henry Morgan Lady Chastity Morgan The Black Widow Bluebeard Anne Bonny Long John Silver Scarlet Reid Blind Pew Optional Roles: Tia Maria Roger the Cabin Boy Setting: The year is 1776 and the North American continent is in a state of turmoil. A Declaration of Independence absolving all allegiances to the British Crown is expected imminently from the United States Patriots, with enormous consequences. One place already feeling the effects is the nearby Caribbean, where a fragile truce between rival pirate warlords is on the verge of collapse. These problems are due to be addressed at this year's Pirate Council Annual General Meeting, soon to be held at the Jolly Roger Inn, Port Royal, Jamaica. However, as the ships arrive in port, the town is stunned by the murder of Captain William Kidd, a powerful pirate warlord, who is found with his throat cut, on the steps of George III House, the Governor of Jamaica's residence. That initial shock is soon replaced by bewilderment, when Kidd's attorney calls an urgent meeting of the beneficiaries to Kidd's estate. However, in order to be eligible for a share in the fortune, each of the participants must agree to an unusual proposal; one carefully designed to either enrich, or ensnare, the Captain's killer!
