ALF: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Dennis Prince, overall
score 87/100):
"Fans of either contemporary or classic thrillers will not be
disappointed by The Vanishing. It has an accessibility that I have
rarely seen in philosophically-minded European films, making it a great
introduction for people that are interested in extending their cinematic
horizons."

DIFF'RENT STROKES: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Patrick
Naugle, overall score 83/100):
"There are those of us who remember the show fondly, not because it was
well acted or intricately constructed -- no, this is a show that stands
up on nostalgic sentiment alone."

GARFIELD AND FRIENDS: VOLUME ONE (reviewed by Patrick Bromley, overall
score 83/100):
"If your kids (or you) enjoy Garfield, skip the live-action film and
pick up this box set. After all, it's got to be better for them (and
you) than Yu-Gi-Oh!."

GROUCHO MARX: YOU BET YOUR LIFE, THE BEST EPISODES (reviewed by Bill
Treadway, overall score 95/100):
"More often than not, when a studio labels a compilation 'the best of,'
the end results are disappointing. That is not the case with Shout!
Factory's compilation You Bet Your Life: The Best Episodes."

HAPPY DAYS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Dennis Prince,
overall score 75/100):
"A platter spins; a tone-arm stands ready, awaiting the vinyl 45rpm
single that will be mechanically lowered to the playing surface. The
jukebox blares to life with glaring neon and the unmistakable rocking of
Bill Haley and the Comets' 'Rock Around the Clock,' inviting us to enjoy
these happy days."

HIGHLANDER: THE SERIES, SEASON FIVE (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall
score 87/100):
"Disappointment gives way to a rousing second half that gives us the
pinnacle of the series. You simply cannot live as a Highlander fan
without seeing these sterling episodes."

LAVERNE AND SHIRLEY: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Sandra
Dozier, overall score 80/100):
"Best of all, Laverne and Shirley had a knack for being all things to
all people -- feminist, refreshingly nonfeminist, good-time girls, role
models, and the all-around type of girl you wanted to hang out wiith
(both for men and for women). "

THE MUNSTERS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Patrick Naugle,
overall score 72/100):
"How many horror puns can one viewer listen to before finally turning
the station to see what's happening on reruns of Dallas?"

NEW ZOO REVUE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Dennis Prince,
overall score 75/100):
"However successful it may have been in conveying its simple sermons to
the pre-grade school audience, it unwittingly added a layer of confusion
and complication (in this erstwhile casual viewer's mind, anyway) by
presenting the three animal characters as uneven, unpredictable, and
sometimes uncontrollable."

10.5 (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 65/100):
"10.5 is: The number of people who might be able to endure the first two
hours of this movie before scanning ahead to the big earthquake at the
end, which turns out to be seven minutes of people running around
through dust while the camera shakes."

TO THE MANOR BORN (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall score 83/100):
"To the Manor Born is a classic situational romantic comedy. By classic,
I of course mean predictable. Strong female lead in close proximity to a
strong male lead who frustrates her...I wonder if they'll fall in love?"

FULL REVIEW: http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/tomanorborn.php

VACUUMING COMPLETELY NUDE IN PARADISE (reviewed by Rob Lineberger,
overall score 84/100):
"Vacuuming Completely Nude in Paradise assaults us with high-profile
guerilla filmmaking. It isn't so much a movie as a coordinated media
attack on our eyes, ears, brains, and hearts. "
