Lionsgate Home Entertainment has revealed the Blu-ray release of Boss: Season Two. The second season of the Starz Original series stars Golden Globe-winner Kelsey Grammer as a Chicago mayor who rules his city with an iron fist. The 2-disc Blu-ray edition will be available for purchase on April 9, 2013.
After nearly losing his career, his family and his mind, Mayor Tom Kane's grip on Chicago is as powerful as ever. With high doses of medication, he's able to beat back the physical symptoms of his debilitating brain disease, but it comes at a cost. Kane is left with intense and uncontrollable neurological side effects. Despite the delusions, Kane breaks ground on the O'Hare Airport expansion and looks toward his next endeavor: protecting and repairing his legacy. With the astute counsel of new aides Mona Fredricks (Sanaa Lathan) and Ian Todd (Jonathan Groff), he plans to remove and rebuild a long forgotten housing project, now home to gang activity and rampant corruption.
Fully aware of Kane's illness, his wife Meredith (Connie Nielsen) finds herself questioning who holds the key to preserving her position of power. While their daughter, Emma (Hannah Ware), who is a product of their loveless, political marriage, battles her own destructive demons. Without his longtime advisors Ezra Stone (Martin Donovan) and Kitty O'Neil (Kathleen Robertson), and his political protégé Ben Zajac (Jeff Hephner), the odds continue to stack against him. As corrupt heads roll and his list of enemies grows, Kane's virtuous actions begin to erode the very foundation of power he's worked a lifetime to build. In order to maintain it, Kane must govern as he always has: ruthlessly.
Boss: Season Two boasts a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track and a number of special features, among them:
Audio Commentaries with Cast and Crew on Select Episodes
The King and His Court: Treacherous Ensemble Featurette
Couldn't disagree more. The second season was even better. Kane was even more ruthless and brilliant. This show was amazing IMHO. I was gutted that they cancelled it, but apparently there is going to be one more season to wrap it all up. At least, that's what I last read. I hope they haven't changed their minds on that too.
I agree, after Breaking Bad which winds up this year this was the next best thing on television. It was definitely on the wrong station. Hopefully someone out there realises their mistake or another exec. sees the intelligence of this show and saves it from its unworthy demise. What is wrong with these people to have cancelled this show?
