Script to Screen: Behind the Scenes (23:13) is a pretty good featurette covering the entire first season with cast and crew interviews.
Rogue Reparation Webisodes – There are 10 webisodes, each featuring a side story to the main one featured in the season.
VIDEO – 4.0/5 | AUDIO – 3.5/5
“Rogue” is presented in anamorphic widescreen transfer and for a television series, doesn’t look too bad with good dark levels with only minor amounts of pixilation.
The Dolby Digital 5.1 track might not be extraordinary, but it gets the job done with clear dialogue levels at times and the show’s score and music making up the bulk of the channel usage.
OVERALL – 2.75/5
Overall, “Rogue”: The Complete First Season, a series airing exclusively on DirectTV, is a well made crime-drama with great performances by Thandie Newton and Marton Csokas and a compelling story that keeps you engaged throughout the 10-episode long season. The DVD released by Entertainment One has good audio/video transfers and a half respectable making-of featurette.
