I don’t watch a ton of TV shows while they’re airing. With a few exceptions, I wait for the DVD and/or Blu-ray sets so I can go on marathons — the only kind of marathons in which I’ll ever participate. Here are capsule reviews of seven such recent tubular trips.

Television series

Rod Lott
Marrying Hollywood's current fairy-tale craze to the ever popular crime procedural is Grimm. While it works on both levels, that it blends the two into a unified whole gives the concept so much fizz, as the 22 episodes of its five-disc first season indicate. This one's perfect for marathoning.

Television series

Rod Lott
With the arrival of fall, a whole new crop of television series has debuted. And yet, I can’t say I’ve caught many more than maybe two. See, I’ve been too busy catching up on all these shows on Blu-ray and DVD — shows such as these fine nine ...
