    COMPANY: SEASON FIVE:


    THE AMAZING RACE: SEASON 7 (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 90/100):
    "Watch relationships crumble in the face of greed! Now with airplanes
    and bungee-jumping!"

    THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO (1998, TV MOVIE) (reviewed by James A.
    Stewart, overall score 88/100):
    "Dumas's story isn't exactly realistic, since most people in Dantes's
    position would have taken the jewels and run off to Italy, end of story.
    Since his Dantes isn't most people, it gives Dumas the opportunity to
    filter questions of morality through Dantes's troubled mind. While you
    could watch the entire miniseries without pondering morality once, those
    who do consider those questions will find The Count of Monte Cristo
    richer than the typical action fare."

    THE DORIS DAY SHOW: SEASON TWO (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall
    score 88/100):
    "So why did this top ten show vanish into obscurity? In short, Doris Day
    was as square as this four-disc boxed set. In 2005, the 'square' label
    is a rather quaint put down that suggests a wholesome naivete. In the
    early '70s, a time of great sociological upheaval and bitter struggles
    for gender equality, it was tantamount to treason."

    EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND: THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON (reviewed by Russell
    Engebretson, overall score 100/100):
    "Quite a number of the Everybody Loves Raymond episodes, stripped of
    their comic overtones, would be as incisive and devastating as a short
    story from James Joyce's Dubliners."

    FOOTBALLERS WIVES: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Brendan
    Babish, overall score 85/100):
    "In case you were still wondering, Footballers Wives is not likely to
    cause anyone to examine any negative impressions they currently have
    regarding Posh Spice."

    F TROOP (TELEVISION FAVORITES COMPILATION) (reviewed by Aaron Bossig,
    overall score 75/100):
    "Likewise, the level of incompetence shown by F Troop might seem too
    absurd to believe. Don't forget, the show is a farce; the more absurd it
    makes itself, the more possibilities for humor it opens up."

    FULL HOUSE: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Patrick Naugle,
    overall score 40/100):
    "If you were forced to sit through a half hour of jokes involving little
    kids making cutesy-wutsey wisecracks, would you want to learn a lesson
    at the end? No sir, you'd want to kill yourself using whatever blunt
    instrument you could find."

    THE HUCKLEBERRY HOUND SHOW: VOLUME ONE (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall
    score 84/100):
    "Though no longer one of HB's marquee figures, Huckleberry Hound was
    undeniably its first big star -- a likable, if slightly vanilla,
    character who never lost his cool."

    I LOVE LUCY: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON (reviewed by Brett Cullum,
    overall score 92/100):
    "Being able to summon your favorite episode without having to wait for a
    syndication airing is what having a DVD player is all about."

    FULL REVIEW: http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/ilovelucyseason4.php

    KINGDOM (reviewed by Brendan Babish, overall score 77/100):
    "Despite uneven storylines, and the dodgy special effects, as a whole,
    Kingdom is worth watching. It has an appealingly distinct style and, for
    a low-budget television drama, is admirably ambitious."

    KING OF THE HILL: THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON (reviewed by Jennifer
    Malkowski, overall score 80/100):
    "Another aspect the show manages well is celebrity guest voices. Another
    great prime-time, animated family (which I promise to stop mentioning
    after this) would have stars like Owen Wilson and Paul Giamatti on the
    show as themselves. Frankly, this approach usually stinks, as proven by
    the parade of (as they put it) 'humor-killing celebrity guest stars' in
    some of the worse seasons of The Simpsons. But on King of the Hill,
    Wilson plays a dorky, horny, fellow virgin who proposes to Luanne, and
    Giamatti voices a hippie-dippie environmentalist."

    THE KUMARS AT NO. 42 (reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall score 86/100):
    "Now, you don't just get 15 minutes of fame. Now, everybody gets a
    talk show."

    M*A*S*H: SEASON NINE (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 89/100):
    "So how long were these guys in Korea again?"

    NEWLYWEDS: NICK AND JESSICA: THE FINAL SEASON (reviewed by Ryan Keefer,
    overall score 70/100):
    "Now don't get me wrong, the couple appear to be nice enough folk. They
    appear at the obligatory charity appearances with smiles on their faces,
    and are nice to those that serve or wait on them. But I don't know how
    being nice despite being famous is something that a lot of people should
    have been watching on TV."

    PEEP SHOW: THE COMPLETE FIRST SERIES (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall
    score 85/100):
    "Once we adjust to the strangeness of hearing the characters' thoughts
    and seeing through their eyes, tedium starts to set in. By the last two
    episodes, it becomes clear that the show's creators were having too much
    fun with the premise to bother thinking through a full series arc."

    THE ROCKFORD FILES: SEASON ONE (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall
    score 85/100):
    "When Rockford wasn't on screen coyly smiling at the ladies, scamming
    potential suspects, or getting punched in the gut, he was undoubtedly
    caught up in a high speed car chase -- a series staple that allowed
    Cannell & Co. to milk as much sex appeal from Rockford's Pontiac
    Firebird as possible."

    THREE'S COMPANY: SEASON FIVE (reviewed by Patrick Naugle, overall
    score 89/100):
    "Here's to casual sex and bell-bottom pants!"
