Our Cartoon President: Season One With World Class Amenities
(CBS DVD/Paramount)

It's surprising this smartly-written satirical cartoon didn't get more attention when it first ran on Showtime. Created by Stephen Colbert, among others, this series is based on a reoccurring segment from Colbert's late night talk show. The characters, Trump, his family and his admittedly cartoonish staff, are the perfect anecdote to the depressing state of the country right now. It's impressive how quickly the writers and animators can get a constantly changing run of current events into the weekly show. This DVD set includes all 18 episodes and the mid-term election special.

Foreigner - Live at the Rainbow '78
(Eagle Vision)

In 1978, just two years into their existence and still boasting their classic line up, Foreigner played a blistering set inside London's Rainbow Theatre and the hour-plus long show is captured beautifully here on Live at the Rainbow '78. Touring behind the songs off of their 1976 self-titled debut and the '78 follow up Double Vision, the Lou Graham-led band tear through a hits-laden set that included "Hot Blooded," "Double Vision," "Feels Like the First Time" and "Cold As Ice". The band is tight and was taking nothing for granted at this point in their career, still working to earn the audience's favor.

Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes
(Magnolia Home Entertainment)

The story of Roger Ailes can best be summed up as that of a kid who has spent his entire life trying to earn the love of a distant father. Thanks to Ailes daddy issues, we're stuck with a wildly toxic TV station/propaganda arm that stokes fears of minorities coming to take over the world. Told through a series of interviews of folks like Glen Beck, former employees he sexually harassed and Ailes himself, via archival interviews, director Alexis Bloom covers Ailes' life from childhood, through politics, his shaping of Fox News and his ultimate dismissal once his history of serials sexual harassment became too much for the network to cover up.
