Must See HDTV for the week of December 30th: Community, Dragonball Z and Downton Abbey


As we say goodbye to 2013 the week is filled with New Year's Eve celebrations (Ryan Seacrest vs. Carson Daly) and a different kind of competition with college bowl games and the opening round of the NFL playoffs. Looking for more than sportsball and holiday cheer? This week also features the debut of Dragonball Z Season One Uncut on Blu-ray, remastered in widescreen and 1080p. Showtime is also airing its House of Lies Live special New Years Eve, although the impatient can watch it right here or embedded below. Once all the celebration is over we'll be starting the year off with October 19th, as Community returns for season five once again under the direction of writer Dan Harmon. Downton Abbey season four gets started this weekend on PBS, while ABC kicks off its Cold War-era miniseries The Assets on Thursday night. Check after the break for our weekly listing of what to look out for in TV, Blu-ray and gaming.
