    ANDROMEDA: SEASON FOUR, COLLECTION FIVE (reviewed by David Ryan, overall
    score 79/100):
    "The season was not the crowning achievement in science fiction
    television that some thought might be in store during the show's early
    episodes. Instead, it was just another run of episodes from an uneven,
    but often entertaining, good quality sci-fi action-adventure with a
    talented and engaging cast."

    CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: SOLSTROM: THE COMPLETE SERIES (reviewed by Steve
    Evans, overall score 87/100):
    "Whatever you may think of an entire television series devoted to stunt
    clowns and pantomimes, Solstrom offers satisfying mood pieces that
    pulsate with magic."

    CREATURE COMFORTS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by James A.
    Stewart, overall score 92/100):
    "Context obviously takes a Brighton holiday in Creature Comforts. Thus,
    you get birds talking about fear of flying, and a turkey at Christmas
    season saying, 'I do feel I'm being pulled in all directions. They're
    all going to get a piece of me.'"

    DICE: HIGH SPEED ACTION (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score
    82/100):
    "You can't judge a title like DICE: High Speed Action along the same
    lines as you would something like the Ghost in the Shell series. This is
    a show that's about simple desires -- speed, toys, and fast plots that
    disappear into the ether as quickly as they came. It's fine fun for the
    young and young-at-heart, but not a series for serious anime fans."

    MCMILLAN AND WIFE: SEASON ONE (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall
    score 79/100):
    "Updating the starry-eyed banter of Nick and Nora Charles to meet modern
    expectations, the series keeps the focus distinctly on the lovey-dovey
    relationship between the two principals, indulging in silly word play
    and gentle humor to keep the characters interesting and the show
    evolving."

    SLIDERS: THE THIRD SEASON (reviewed by Mac McEntire, overall
    score 78/100):
    "At a time when sci-fi television was dominated by dark shows such as
    The X-Files and its many rip-offs, Sliders dared to be different by
    being lighthearted."

    SPENSER: THE MOVIE COLLECTION (reviewed by Maurice Cobbs, overall
    score 56/100):
    "Any of Robert B. Parker's principal characters could be as dynamic, but
    Avery Brooks is the only performer who makes the most of his role. And
    let me tell you -- that's about the only thing this otherwise lackluster
    movies have going for them."

    XENA: THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION (reviewed by Maurice Cobbs,
    overall score 95/100):
    "With all of the season sets of Xena already available, it's tempting to
    regard this set as a cheap marketing ploy -- especially nowadays, when
    studios feel little compunction about tacking on a couple of cheap and
    skimpy 'extra special features' to justify double dipping. But that
    ain't the case with this set. Some real thought and effort was put into
    making this a great buy for fans and newcomers alike. Battle on!"
