Television seasons highlight this week's DVD release list, including Sons of Anarchy: Season Two, The Vampire Diaries: The Complete First Season, House, M.D.: Season Six, NCIS: Los Angeles - The First Season, and FlashForward: The Complete Series.

For those a bit more nostalgic, Boris Karloff's 1962 horror series Thriller is also out tomorrow.

Leonard Cohen: Bird on a Wire, with performances culled from the singer-songwriter's 1972 European tour and directed by Tony Palmer, is available on DVD for the first time.

Cinevardaphoto is a collection of short films by Agnes Varda, and as much as I admired her film The Beaches of Agnes, this is easily is my most anticipated DVD release of the week.

The Films of Duki Dror V. 1 collects three films (Raging Dove, The Journey of Vaan Nguyen, My Fantasia) from the celebrated Israeli filmmaker. Dror's film Across the River is also on store shelves tomorrow.

Dear Pyongyang is a moving documentary about expatriate North Koreans living in Japan.

A limited edition of The Evil Dead is available on Blu-ray this week.
