COMPLETE THIRD SEASON:
ADAM-12: SEASON ONE (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall score 75/100):
"Like Dragnet, the Jack Webb-produced Adam-12 is a sparse but tough cops
and robbers TV series that features stories 'ripped from police files.'
Like its predecessor, it's a self-congratulatory, unabashedly one-sided
view of law and order, but here the tone is much lighter and friendlier
as it takes the viewer right into the squad car for an upfront view of
this fascinating job."

THE AUTOPSY FILES (reviewed by Patrick Naugle, overall score 88/100):
"The Autopsy Files will quench the thirst of anyone sporting a morbid
fascination with murder, or those who love things like CSI: Crime Scene
Investigation or The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Because I love horror
movies, something like The Autopsy Files speaks to me, and it says
'Patrick, you're a sick little puppy.'"

THE DAVID STEINBERG SHOW (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall score
"In the mid-1970s, the youth audience that Steinberg had previously made
an impression on with his edgy act had since moved on to Saturday Night
Live and SCTV, rendering this show less than a small blip on the TV

EARTH 2: THE COMPLETE SERIES (reviewed by Aaron Bossig, overall
"Call me a geek, but I think even bad science fiction is better watching
material than most of what is on TV. Good science fiction, then, is
something to appreciate, even get excited over."

THE KOALA BROTHERS: MEET THE KOALA BROTHERS / WE'RE HERE TO HELP
(reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall score 67/100):
" The lesson of each episode is always the same. Always try to help.
Helping is good. We like helping out. It makes you want to throw an Ayn
Rand novel at the producers and tell them you've had enough of

MAGIC SCHOOL BUS: HUMAN BODY (reviewed by Bryan Pope, overall
"Human anatomy is among the most fascinating topics the series has ever
tackled, and, here, they treat it like high adventure, with danger
lurking at every turn."

MILLENNIUM: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Michael Stailey,
overall score 96/100):
"Season Two spins the series' original concept on its ear, discovering
the dark and twisted humor found in any dire situation. Like a cavalry
lead by John Waters and Tim Burton, the rebellious yet oddly reverential
creative team of Glen Morgan and James Wong march into this dour world,
lighting its deepest recesses with black light, and injecting its
atmosphere with a mixture of nitrous oxide and fine Colombian reefer."

MONTY PYTHON'S FLYING CIRCUS: ERIC IDLE'S PERSONAL BEST (reviewed by
Jeff Andreasen, overall score 65/100):
"Taken as a whole, the best skits delivered by Monty Python are
sidesplitting fare. Snipped apart to fill a half-hour vanity piece for a
single participant, they're a mess."

THE REN AND STIMPY SHOW: SEASON FIVE AND SOME MORE OF FOUR (reviewed by
Mike Pinsky, overall score 47/100):
"I tried to give the show a chance. But two episodes into this first
disc -- just four cartoons -- and I am on the verge of giving up and
just writing this review without watching the rest of the set."

SCTV: VOLUME FOUR (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall score 98/100):
"Using a three-pronged humor attack consisting of subversive satire,
outrageous slapstick, and tragically hilarious characters honed from
the improvisational battleground of Toronto's Second City theater
stage, SCTV spent eight years on the air championing the silly and

THE WALTONS: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Rob Lineberger,
overall score 92/100):
"The show is undeniably sentimental -- in fact, sentiment is one of its
pillars. But The Waltons is sentimental in the best of ways. Its
sentiment is a rudder gently steering us toward conclusions about

WHAT'S HAPPENING!!: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON (reviewed by Dennis
Prince, overall score 69/100):
"The various set ups, then, aren't very inventive nor innovative --
we've seen this shtick before -- but the character chemistry is
compelling enough that we'll look on and laugh at and with these three
well-meaning but woefully inept young adults."
