Devouring TV's Hits, Whole Seasons at a Time

With the rise of the TV-series box set, more shows are earning fans who devour episodes one after another.

Fresh Air TV critic David Bianculli reviews two newly released sets: the debut seasons of Heroes and Friday Night Lights.

The former is a seven-disc set packed with deleted scenes and the unaired original pilot; the Friday Night Lights set includes deleted episodes and a making-of featurette.
