($59.98) NBC's reality hit is one of the best—clever, tough, funny—and Donald Trump is terrific, scowling at contestants with a majesty that may be self-parody.Extras: Job-interview tips from sidekicks George Ross and Carolyn Kepcher could be useful.

($59.98) This bleak yet atmospheric '96-'99 series about an ex-FBI serial killer profiler (Lance Henriksen) is guaranteed to creep you out: One maniac microwaves his victims; another sews their eyes shut.
