Mixed Notes

By Rich Heldenfels Published: August 14, 2013

I'm working on a column looking more closely at the merits of extras on recent DVD and Blu-ray sets. And one that has caught my eye is on the Season 4 DVD set of "The Good Wife," which will be in stores on Aug. 20.

The 11-minute segment looks at how the show portrays sex -- and it can be a very sexy show -- and dealing with CBS's Standards & Practices department. In addition to the discussion, it shows selected scenes both as they were turned in to S&P and as they finally aired. Unaired versions are for the most part, uh, better.

By the way, even though we are still talking about a broadcast TV show, the DVD segment carries a big, red-background 'INCLUDES ADULT-ORIENTED CONTENT" warning.\

Here's the latest on "Underdogs," the locally shot movie, which will get some regular theatrical showings beginning Thursday.

Get ready for a new, Peter Berg-created introduction to "Monday Night Football."

Nice video on Grantland about Wilt Chamberlain working as a bellhop in the Catskills.

Retired journalist Jack Germond, long a regular on political-discussion programs, has died at the age of 85. I liked this passage from the obit in the Baltimore Sun, where he spent part of his career:

At Mr. Germond's request, there will be no services.
"Jack will be cremated and his ashes strewn in the Shenandoah River. He began and ended his days looking at that river and that is where he'll spend eternity," said his wife.
