    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of GRANDPA'S PLACE: VOLUME 2,
    HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREET: THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON, KING SOLOMON'S
    MINES (2004), LAW AND ORDER: THE FOURTEENTH YEAR, LAW AND ORDER:
    CRIMINAL INTENT: THE THIRD YEAR, LAW AND ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT:
    THE FIFTH YEAR, and WHAT'S HAPPENING!! THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON:


    GRANDPA'S PLACE: VOLUME 2 (reviewed by Diane Wild, overall score
    35/100):
    "Grandpa's Place is an obscure children's series that, as far as I can
    tell, lasted four episodes which may or may not have ever been
    broadcast. This DVD consists of the latter two of those episodes and
    answers the question: 'why did it only last four episodes?' but not:
    'why bother putting out a DVD?'"

    HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREET: THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON (reviewed by
    David Gutierrez, overall score 97/100):
    "Homicide: Life on the Street exemplifies the best television has to
    offer. Steeped in characterization and blessed with incredible writing,
    acting and production values, Homicide sets new expectations for the
    cop genre."

    KING SOLOMON'S MINES (2004) (reviewed by Maurice Cobbs, overall
    score 75/100):
    "Whether or not it was intentional (and I sort of suspect that it was
    not), the people behind this retelling of King Solomon's Mines have
    created an almost perfect throwback to the classic adventure serials of
    the '30s and '40s."

    LAW AND ORDER: THE FOURTEENTH YEAR (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall
    score 95/100):
    "It always turns out to be the mother. Trust me."

    LAW AND ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT: THE THIRD YEAR (reviewed by David
    Gutierrez, overall score 92/100):
    "Little by little, Goren has tidbits of his life uncovered for the
    audience. Due to the flickering nature of these revelations, it can
    appear that Goren has knowledge that creeps up when it is convenient to
    solving crimes, very much in a deux ex machina fashion. To like Goren is
    to have patience."

    LAW AND ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT: THE FIFTH YEAR (reviewed by Patrick
    Bromley, overall score 87/100):
    "More often than not, Law & Order: SVU functions more as pure police
    procedural than as drama, which is both a strength and a weakness."

    WHAT'S HAPPENING!! THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Lacey
    Worrell, overall score 80/100):
    "The second season of What's Happening!! is clearly the show's best. The
    classic episodes included in this release are some of the most beloved
    of the series' run."
