In the third season of NCIS: New Orleans, protecting America’s wildest party town is a full-time job for this elite crime-fighting unit.

Nothing will stop special agent-in-charge Dwayne Cassius “King” Pride from defending his beloved city, with the help of reliable right-hand man Christopher Lasalle and unstoppable undercover expert Sonja Percy. As the field agents hit the streets, their evidence is analyzed back at base by digital security expert Patton Plame, skilled medical examiner Dr. Loretta Wade, and idiosyncratic forensics specialist Sebastian Lund. As the team copes with a rogue sniper, a cartel’s conspiracies, and a deep sea oil rig primed to explode, they face a new crisis that hits closer to home.

In the wake of a betrayal compromising the unit’s integrity, they find themselves under investigation by FBI special agent Tammy Gregorio, a hard-charging New Yorker who makes a fierce friend and a tireless foe. The team will never be the same after the 23 nerve-wracking episodes collected in this 6-disc set.

America comes to the Big Easy to party, but the crimes can turn deadly serious. That's where the elite unit of NCIS: New Orleans comes into play.

As Special Agent-in-Charge, Dwayne Cassius "King" Pride (Scott Bakula) is responsible for cracking cases threatening American security or involving military personnel. His hand-picked unit includes streetwise former NOPD detective Christopher LaSalle (Lucas Black), ultra-dedicated agent Meredith Brody (Zoe McLellan), and their newest recruit, former undercover ATF agent Sonja Percy (Shalita Grant). While the investigators are on the scene, the evidence gets handled by the technical experts back at headquarters, including offbeat forensics scientist Sebastian Lund (Rob Kerkovich), unstoppable hacker Patton Plame (Daryl "Chill" Mitchell) and seasoned Medical Examiner Dr. Loretta Wade (CCH Pounder).

From black market drones, to deadly new drugs, to a lethal home invasion, no situation is too extreme in the 24 thrill-packed episodes collected in this 6-disc set.

Triple bill of Disney adaptations from the traditional tale of Aladdin. In 'Aladdin' (1993), the eponymous street urchin meets by chance the beautiful Princess Jasmine in the marketplace after she has sneaked out of the royal palace looking for some fun. The sultan's advisor, the evil Jafar, who is hatching an evil plot to marry Jasmine and become sultan himself, senses her attraction to the youth and immediately gives orders to throw Aladdin (voice of Robin Williams) in jail. But when Aladdin discovers a magic lamp in a cave, his quest begins: to defeat Jafar and win the hand of the princess, with the help of the Genie in the lamp. In the sequel, 'The Return of Jafar' (1994), Jafar the evil sorcerer gets trapped inside the magic lamp, and plots his revenge on Aladdin, who is again accompanied by the beautiful Princess Jasmine and the wise-cracking Genie. In the second sequel, 'Aladdin and the King of Thieves' (1996), Aladdin is worried about his impending marriage to Princess Jasmine, and in particular his future role as a father, as he has never known his own. When the forty thieves steal a magical talisman during the ceremony, Aladdin is forced to put such concerns to one side. However, as he attempts to retrieve the missing jewel, he unwittingly moves closer to finding his long-lost dad...

Jake Sully is a former Marine confined to a wheelchair. But despite his broken body, Jake is still a warrior at heart. He is recruited to travel light years to the human outpost on Pandora, where a corporate consortium is mining a rare mineral that is the key to solving Earth's energy crisis.

Because Pandora's atmosphere is toxic, they have created the Avatar Program, in which human "drivers" have their consciousness linked to an avatar, a remotely-controlled biological body that can survive in the lethal air. These avatars are genetically engineered hybrids of human DNA mixed with DNA from the natives of Pandora... the Na'vi.

Reborn in his avatar form, Jake can walk again. He is given a mission to infiltrate the Na'vi, who have become a major obstacle to mining the precious ore. But a beautiful Na'vi female, Neytiri, saves Jake's life, and this changes everything. Jake is taken in by her clan, and learns to become one of them, which involves many tests and adventures. As Jake's relationship with his reluctant teacher Neytiri deepens, he learns to respect the Na'vi way and finally takes his place among them.

Soon he will face the ultimate test as he leads them in an epic battle that will decide the fate of an entire world.

James Cameron directs this triple Academy Award and double BAFTA-winning sci-fi action adventure. Sam Worthington stars as Jake Sully, a paraplegic war veteran who is selected to participate in the Avatar programme, in which genetically-engineered human beings are sent to explore a small moon called Pandora. There, the indigenous Navi tribe of three-metre-high, human-like beings have long lived a peaceful existence in harmony with their plant-covered world, despite their fearsome warrior skills. When Jake meets Navi princess Neytiri (Zoe Saldana), he falls in love with her and becomes integrated into her clan - little knowing that his mission on Pandora has a far more sinister aim than he realised. Before long, Jake is caught up in an epic battle that could decide the fate of an entire world.

A triple bill of sci-fi cops. The first film, 'Robocop', is set in the near future and Detroit's soaring crime rate is unsuccessfully policed by a corporation which plans to build a new city, if its workers can go about unmolested. When its new 'enforcement droid' proves unworkable, a murdered cop (Peter Weller) is wired into a computer-controlled titanium body and set to the task at hand. Unimpressed, 'Robocop' seeks vengeance on all sides in this violent but often funny tale. In the second film, 'Robocop 2', a new model, Robocop 2 (Tom Noonan), is built while Robocop 1 still patrols the streets of Detroit. Robocop 2 is given a maniac's 'soul', thereby setting the stage for a showdown between the two computer constables. Finally, in 'Robocop 3' Robocop is befriended by a young girl whose parents have been killed, and after his partner is killed by the head of a private security firm, he joins a group of rebels to fight back against the evil businessmen. There is a notable fight sequence between a plastic-like robot Ninja and the sluggish metal Robocop, which, together with the rebels hiding out in the derelict General Motors Factory, constitutes a thinly veiled critique of the Japanese car industry from the heart of Detroit - the original motor city.

In "Pillar of Fire," the second volume of his America in the King Years trilogy, Taylor Branch portrays the civil rights era at its zenith. The first volume, "Parting the Waters," won the Pulitzer Prize for History. It is a monumental chronicle of a movement that stirred from Southern black churches to challenge the national conscience during the Eisenhower and Kennedy years. In this masterly continuation of the narrative, Branch recounts the climactic struggles as they commanded the national and international stage.
"Pillar of Fire" covers the far-flung upheavals of the years 1963 to 1965 -- Dallas, St. Augustine, Mississippi Freedom Summer, LBJ's Great Society and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Vietnam, Selma. And it provides a frank, revealing portrait of Martin Luther King, Jr. -- haunted by blackmail, factionalism, and hatred while he tried to hold the nonviolent movement together as a dramatic force in history. Allies, rivals, and opponents addressed racial issues that went deeper than fair treatment at bus stops or lunch counters. Participants on all sides stretched themselves and their country to the breaking point over the meaning of simple words: dignity, equal votes, equal souls.

Hailed as the most masterful story ever told of the American civil rights movement, "Parting the Waters" is destined to endure for generations.

This audio adaptation focuses primarily on Martin Luther King, Jr. and the key moments that defined his rise to the forefront of the civil rights movement. From Rosa Parks' monumental arrest in Montgomery to King's imprisonment in Birmingham and his triumphant march on Washington, Taylor Branch provides an unsurpassed portrait of King's rise to greatness. He illuminates the stunning courage and private conflict, the deals, maneuvers, betrayals, and rivalries that determined history behind closed doors, at boycotts and sit-ins, on bloody freedom rides, and through siege and murder.
