The Star-Telegram arts writers spotlight what’s rocking their world this week.

1 Kindred: The Embraced — The Complete Series: Before Buffy and True Blood, there was the entertaining Kindred: The Embraced, a shortlived Fox drama about vampires among us that was well ahead of its time. Now, a new generation can play catch up: a DVD re-release arrives Tuesday with all eight episodes, an extended pilot episode, additional commentary, deleted scenes and a letter from creator John Leekley.

2 The Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts: Complete Collection on DVD: Celebrity roasts have become fashionable again, thanks to Comedy Central, but Dean Martin and his pals were giving each other grief decades earlier. Now available in one 25-disc box, the Martin celebrity roasts — everyone from Lucille Ball and Jack Benny to Ronald Reagan and Frank Sinatra takes a round of good-natured abuse — have lost none of their humor over the years. Apart from the roasts, the set includes 15 hours of bonus features, behind-the-scenes interviews, rare home movies and a 40-page collector’s book. The set is available exclusively at deanroasts.com.
