ALL GROWN UP!: O' BROTHER! (reviewed by Dennis Prince, overall
"In all, All Grown Up! -- O' Brother! is not a bad disc and will provide
an hour and a half of safe and sane entertainment, but it's
disappointing to see another studio market 'down' to an emerging age
group of soon-to-be DVD consumers. 'Oh brother' is right."

CARNIVALE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall
"Carnivale could be one of the greatest feats of the history of
television, depending on what's in store as the show continues."

CHALLENGE OF THE SUPERFRIENDS: THE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Michael
Stailey, overall score 85/100):
"From dirty streets that seem to stink of failed dreams to wide-open
vistas that suggest the end of the line instead of infinite
possibilities, this is California as a dead end, the sun-and-fun
lifestyle turned dire and dark."

CRUSADE: THE COMPLETE SERIES (reviewed by David Ryan, overall
"All good things must come to an end -- but it's sad when that end is
sudden and seemingly unfair. Crusade marks the end of our weekly
journeys into J. Michael Straczynski's unique Babylon 5 universe;
journeys that most fans would have wanted to continue. But instead, the
show was a flawed mishmash of Straczynski's intelligent storytelling and
network-imposed 'suggestions.' It leaves no one satisfied."

FARSCAPE: SEASON 1, COLLECTION 1 (STARBURST EDITION) (reviewed by David
Ryan, overall score 96/100):
"In this humble reviewer's opinion, Farscape is the best science fiction
series ever made. In every aspect of television production, from
storytelling to set design, Farscape is superior to its competition."

FARSCAPE: SEASON 4, COLLECTION 1 (reviewed by Erick Harper, overall
"Farscape: Season 4, Collection 1is something of a disappointment, even
for a diehard Farscape fan such as myself. The special features are
nice, but the video quality is something of a disappointment, as are the
majority of these episodes."

FRASIER: THE COMPLETE FINAL SEASON (reviewed by Diane Wild, overall
"The writers knew from the beginning that this would be the last
season, and they took advantage of that to reflect on the past as well
as build up storylines that allowed them to send the characters off in
FULL REVIEW: http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/fr...inalseason.php
HENRY VIII (reviewed by Amanda DeWees, overall score 75/100):
"Whereas the historical Henry was a learned man and a canny statesman,
as well as a handsome man known for his athleticism, as embodied by
Winstone he looks more like a neckless ex-football player and sounds
like a lower-class lout."

JOHN RITTER COMEDY SPECIAL: BEING OF SOUND MIND AND BODY (reviewed by
Amanda DeWees, overall score 77/100):
"Those who miss this talented actor -- and that's a great many of us --
will be glad to see this rare early material available, but this disc
could really have used some beefing up with more content."

MACBETH (reviewed by Diane Wild, overall score 81/100):
"My bigger issue with this Macbeth is that the message isn't tailored to
the medium. Taking the 'live' out of live theatre is one loss, and
despite the fine extras, using television or DVD to portray an unaltered
stage play doesn't use the technology to even a fraction of its full
extent. Still, I might never see the Royal Shakespeare Company perform
live, and I'll certainly never have the chance to see Ian McKellen and
Judi Dench on stage, so this Macbeth is a welcome release. "

MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 COLLECTION, VOLUME 6 (reviewed by Bill
Gibron, overall score 91/100):
"Yet among all the laser-blast battles and skin-shedding skeletons,
there is a dumb little diversion here, a movie with the melons to put a
crayfish in front of a blue screen and supersize it out of all rational
proportion. However, by the time we get to the giant etouffee and the
self-sacrifice ending, we're not weepy but sleepy."

NEWLYWEDS: NICK AND JESSICA: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by
Patrick Bromley, overall score 80/100):
"While a slew of other reality TV shows may feature 'regular folks' like
me, it's not an everyday occurrence that I am forced to eat sheep's
bladders or am fired by Donald Trump. At least, not the second one."

REAL WHEELS: HIGH SPEED ADVENTURES (reviewed by Lacey Worrell, overall
"Kids will likely be fascinated by Dave and Becky's adventures, because
both hosts display a great deal of enthusiasm and energy for the topic
at hand. They are not passive observers; they fully immerse themselves
in learning how to safely drive race cars, practice good motorcycle
safety, and conduct basic simulations of life in space."

REAL WHEELS: LAND, AIR, AND SEA ADVENTURES (reviewed by Lacey Worrell,
overall score 85/100):
"Dave and Becky come across as genuinely nice people who can laugh
at themselves and who are committed to providing quality programming

STAR TREK: VOYAGER, SEASON SIX (reviewed by Sandra Dozier, overall
"The chief weakness of this series is that the writers could never
decide where their focus should be: exciting adventures and dog fights
with scary aliens, or humanistic stories showcasing the crew? They try
to have the best of both worlds, and eventually end up failing to do
either very well. However, the lure of Voyager is in finding the gems
among the coal, because when they get it right, it's a thing of beauty

24: SEASON THREE (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 93/100):
"It's 24 weeks of movie-quality production values, down-to-the-minute
suspense, more twists and turns than a Britney Spears marriage, and one
of the most ass-kickingest characters to hit the boob tube. If that's
not bang for your buck, what is?"
