BLUE COLLAR TV: SEASON 1, VOLUME 1 (reviewed by Cynthia Boris, overall
"What would you get if you crossed Hee Haw with Mad TV? You'd get a
satirical sketch comedy show with more NASCAR jokes than at a Jeff
Gordon roast. And if you understand that reference, well...you might
just be a redneck."

CHRISTMAS WITH SCTV (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall score 88/100):
"It's the individual skits that are the clear highlight, a wide variety
of always hilarious bits that properly skewer the bad TV holiday
specials we're forced to endure every year."

COUNT DUCKULA: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Patrick Naugle,
overall score 70/100):
"Count Duckula would be a great nostalgic trip if I could only remember
more than 5% of it. But I can't, and so Count Duckula becomes an
exercise in mediocre animation."

CSI: NY: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by David Gutierrez, overall
"The New York entry falls somewhere between the original CSI and CSI:
Miami. CSI: NY tries its best to set itself apart from the others
through its palette, cast, and using New York as a character. On the
down side, at times the show tries too hard."

HAVE GUN - WILL TRAVEL: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by David
Ryan, overall score 88/100):
"Several of these episodes were penned by Roddenberry -- and you can
tell. His episodes just feel like Star Trek. They often involve
difficult moral choices, have an unusual narrative form, and are heavy

THE JEFFERSONS: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON (reviewed by Patrick Naugle,
overall score 76/100):
"The ratio of good/original episodes here outweighs the bad, making for
an often raucous and funny affair. If you're in the mood for some
classic TV comedy, you've come to the right spot."

ONCE AND AGAIN: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Chris Claro,
overall score 91/100):
"When it first aired, Once and Again was dismissed by many as
'fortysomething': the old narcissism you love, now with added angst and
double the divorce! Such a comparison would be facile, as Once and Again
was more textured, with a maturity that thirtysomething never achieved."

SHELLEY DUVALL'S TALL TALES AND LEGENDS: DAVY CROCKETT (reviewed by Jeff
Andreasen, overall score 90/100):
"'Davy Crockett' is, so far, the most involving of Shelley Duvall's Tall
Tales and Legends."

SOAP: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall
"Soap was funny as hell, but even more surprising was how well the show
handled serious topics and dramatic moments. As the show grew, it
explored darker and darker themes: infidelity, alcoholism,
homosexuality, insanity, and terminal illness. Though it was always
irreverent and a laugh riot, the show had its fair share of tearful

UNSCRIPTED (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall score 69/100):
"Once the charm of having the Wizard revealed wears off, what are we
left with? A painfully awkward show about lousy jobs. I already have a
lousy job. Do I really want to spend my leisure time watching a show
about other people's lousy jobs? As I watched episode after episode of
Unscripted, it turns out the answer is 'no.'"

WHAT'S NEW? SCOOBY-DOO: MONSTER MATINEE (VOLUME 6) (reviewed by Dennis
Prince, overall score 75/100):
"While attempting to recapture the original essence of the show some
thirty years later, the show largely missed its mark, unable to woo long-
time Scooby enthusiasts."
