    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES:
    SECRETS OF THE CAPED CRUSADER, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: THE COMPLETE
    SIXTH SEASON, DREAM ON: SEASONS ONE AND TWO, HAROLD AND THE PURPLE
    CRAYON: THE COMPLETE SERIES, THE MAN SHOW PRESENTS: GIRLS ON

    BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES: SECRETS OF THE CAPED CRUSADER (reviewed by
    Sandra Dozier, overall score 75/100):
    "I also like to think of this set as 'Batman Lite,' since these episodes
    have very little (if any) violence or lone-wolf vigilante justice. On
    the plus side, these episodes are heavier on the detective side of
    Batman's character, and in the expert hands of the show's creators, this
    is always a treat."

    BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON (reviewed by Michael
    Stailey, overall score 97/100):
    "Joss is a master storyteller, laying the groundwork for the journey and
    enabling his writing team to creatively determine how these characters
    get from Point A to Point C. In a show like Buffy the Vampire Slayer,
    it's the journeys, not the episodes, which are the most compelling."

    DREAM ON: SEASONS ONE AND TWO (reviewed by Amanda DeWees, overall
    score 89/100):
    "I wearied of the constant parade of guest breasts -- nearly every guest
    girlfriend has a topless scene, and sometimes casual bystanders do as
    well. If you concocted a drinking game whereby you drank a shot every
    time a woman takes off her blouse, you'd be unconscious well before the
    end of Season One."

    HAROLD AND THE PURPLE CRAYON: THE COMPLETE SERIES (reviewed by David
    Packard, overall score 92/100):
    "From the title, all I knew about this series was that it involved a
    little boy named Harold, and that a purple crayon somehow fit into the
    proceedings. Having been through the discs, I speak for both father and
    son when I say it's a complete joy that we've discovered Harold and his
    whimsical adventures."

    THE MAN SHOW PRESENTS: GIRLS ON TRAMPOLINES (reviewed by Mitchell
    Hattaway, overall score 30/100):
    "I sat through every minute of it, and I'm still asking myself why I did
    it. (Well, I was required to do it for this review, but I was also
    afraid the moment I switched it off the girls would start making out and
    I'd miss it.)"

    THE REAL OLYMPICS (reviewed by Diane Wild, overall score 65/100):
    "The Real Olympics is a documentary of the non-Michael Moore style, with
    well-researched, balanced information presented using talking heads,
    slightly cheesy recreations of ancient events, and still shots of
    artifacts and illustrations. Unfortunately, unlike Moore's controversial
    contributions to the genre, The Real Olympics is not something your
    coworkers will be talking about at the water cooler any time soon."

    7TH HEAVEN: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Diane Wild, overall
    score 74/100):
    "7th Heaven has all the ingredients of a show I should hate. Sappy
    storylines. Unrealistically good characters. The equation of religion
    with morality. And yet...there's something unhateable about it. "

    SILK STALKINGS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Rob Lineberger,
    overall score 89/100):
    "Rita tells Chris about a nice burger joint, but all we hear is 'I want
    to rip that holster and hot-pink blazer off of your broad shoulders and
    spoil you for all future women.' Chris replies with an offhand remark
    about curly fries, and we could swear he said 'Sure, rip my blazer off,
    you minx, but be ready for a three-day marathon of passion if you do!'
    It is no stretch to say that Chris and Rita having coffee is as
    watchable as some actual cop shows are today."

    TEEN TITANS: DIVIDE AND CONQUER (VOLUME 1) (reviewed by Mitchell
    Hattaway, overall score 85/100):
    "I respect that you don't eat meat. Please respect that I don't eat
    fake meat."

    VIVA LA BAM: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall
    score 93/100):
    "We can live vicariously through Bam Margera and his 'take no prisoners'
    approach to all facets of life, and we never have to pay a single cent
    in legal or moral penalties for it. Like a one-man rebellion against the
    growing ennui in a world warped by the malaise of the media, the guys of
    CKY (which stands for Camp Kill Yourself, by the way) are out to grow
    some funk and some fun of their own."
