    AMERICAN EXPERIENCE: HIJACKED (reviewed by Brendan Babish, overall
    score 94/100):
    "While the documentary has been well researched and expertly produced,
    it is also commendably balanced. That is not to say that the film acts
    as an apologist in any way for the hijackers, or for terrorism as a
    political tool."

    BENJAMIN FRANKLIN (reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall score 95/100):
    "Over the years, I have read Franklin's autobiography (often called the
    first true work of American literature), studied books and films about
    the man and his time, and generally felt I had a handle on who Franklin
    was. The best thing I can say about this documentary is that I came away
    with a new appreciation for a historical figure that I thought I already
    knew too much about."

    CRIME STORY: SEASONS ONE AND TWO (reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall
    score 80/100):
    "Crime Story was innovative for its time, even if it had to make a lot
    of compromises to stay on the air. But in retrospect, it took too long
    to find its footing, and its tendency to change directions for the sake
    of survival ultimately weakens it in comparison to shows that more
    successfully worked the serialized-drama premise in later years."

    DIFF'RENT STROKES: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Patrick
    Naugle, overall score 85/100):
    "And really, who couldn't love a wisecracking black child with a rich
    white father?"

    MARTHA'S BAKING FAVORITES (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall
    score 80/100):
    "Martha's Baking Favorites nearly got me excited about baking. I was
    ready to get off the couch and show my wife a thing or two about
    meringues."

    NIGHTY NIGHT: SERIES ONE (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score
    82/100):
    "The term 'dark comedy' doesn't even begin to describe Nighty Night.
    In fact, it's one of the most heartless, vicious comedy series of
    all time."

    SEX AND THE CITY ESSENTIALS: BREAKUPS (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall
    score 80/100):
    "How can you have a collection of breakups without Big and Carrie
    calling it quits? Aidan's breakup was spectacular, but where's the
    Big ones?"

    SEX AND THE CITY ESSENTIALS: LUST (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall
    score 80/100):
    "It's hard to think any three episodes could boil all of this down to a
    simple collection. Anything called Sex and the City Essentials: Lust
    should include almost every episode of the six-year run. Pick any three,
    and it would be there."

    SEX AND THE CITY ESSENTIALS: MR. BIG (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall
    score 85/100):
    "Sex and the City Essentials: Mr. Big contains the best three episode
    selection of all these single-disc collections. It seems strange to only
    have three episodes represent Chris Noth's character, whose ghost
    haunted every episode of the entire run."

    SEX AND THE CITY ESSENTIALS: ROMANCE (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall
    score 80/100):
    "I could think of many other shows from the run that were more evocative
    of the title, but nothing wrong with these episodes. If you're looking
    for a set that includes the final season's ending, it's the one to buy."
