Here are some of the latest TV shows to be released on DVD, led by a genuine treat for Yankees fans.

"The New York Yankees 2009 World Series Collector's Edition" (A&E, 2009, eight discs, $79.95).A few months ago, the Yankees won their 27th World Series championship and their 40th American League pennant — setting records for both. This set includes every game of the series against the Philadelphia Phillies, plus the game that won the American League pennant for the Yankees.

In addition, there are game stats, player facts and other data, as well as four separate audio tracks for each World Series game —Fox Sports TV, Yankees Radio announcers, Phillies Radio announcers and an all-Spanish play-by-play option.

Extras:widescreen, alternate audio tracks, featurettes

"New York Yankees 2009: Season of Pride, Tradition & Glory" (A&E, 2009, $19.95).And for those who would rather have a simple retrospective, there is this documentary-style overview of the 2009 season, culminating in the historic win and the follow-up tickertape parade.

Extras:widescreen, featurettes

"Taxi: The Final Season" (CBS/Paramount, 1982-83, three discs, $42.99).Judd Hirsch, Mariulu Henner, Danny DeVito, Christopher Lloyd, Tony Danza, Andy Kaufman and Carol Kane all shine in this fifth and final year of "Taxi," after it was cancelled by ABC and picked up for one more season by NBC.
