    and UNDECLARED: THE COMPLETE SERIES:


    ALIEN PLANET (reviewed by Mac McEntire, overall score 80/100):
    "When the movie cuts to a biologist explaining how the creature evolved
    to be that way and how it is able to maintain its balance while running
    at great speeds, that's when I want to stand up on my couch and yell at
    the screen, 'It isn't real!'"

    CLEOPATRA 2525: THE COMPLETE SERIES (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 68/100):
    "It had the production values of Batman and Robin, the skin of Baywatch,
    and the narrative coherence of a bowl of Fruity Pebbles."

    THE DORIS DAY SHOW: SEASON ONE (reviewed by Amanda DeWees, overall
    score 77/100):
    "To wrap up the comparison between the two shows, I'd say that The Doris
    Day Show is ideal for audiences who thought that The Andy Griffith Show
    was too zany and fast-paced."

    LITTLE BRITAIN: THE COMPLETE FIRST SERIES (reviewed by Joel Pearce,
    overall score 97/100):
    "Wickedly funny, sharply satirical, and gleefully offensive, Little
    Britain may be one of the funniest sketch comedy series of all time."

    MIKE HAMMER, PRIVATE EYE: THE COMPLETE SERIES (reviewed by Adam
    Arseneau, overall score 55/100):
    "Hammer seems incapable of walking down the street without getting
    jumped by anonymous pipe-wielding thugs or getting shot at by fedora-
    wearing baddies. This seems to happen in every episode, sometimes
    multiple times. Then, after 45 minutes of this garbage, Hammer suddenly
    makes Sherlock Holmes-esque feats of nonsensical deduction, like
    observing some carpet fiber during the first 30 seconds of the episode
    and proving that some obscure character we met in passing is the bad
    guy. Scooby-Doo was a better detective than this guy."

    THE OUTER LIMITS: THE NEW SERIES (ALIENS AMONG US, DEATH AND BEYOND,
    FANTASTIC ANDROIDS AND ROBOTS, MUTATION AND TRANSFORMATION, SEX AND
    SCIENCE FICTION, TIME TRAVEL AND INFINITY) (reviewed by David Johnson,
    overall score 83/100):
    "There's an awful lot of science fiction to be had here. Sure, not all
    episodes are classics, but there is enough good stuff to satiate fans of
    the series and fans of creative storytelling."

    QUINCY: SEASONS ONE AND TWO (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall
    score 89/100):
    "Quincy holds up extremely well. The forensics may seem a little
    primitive compared to modern police procedural TV shows, but with smartly-
    scripted episodes and commendable performances, you'll barely notice."

    UNDECLARED: THE COMPLETE SERIES (reviewed by Diane Wild, overall
    score 92/100):
    "By the end of the 17 episodes, most of these characters feel like
    friends, and their world of insecurity and tentative connections was one
    I was sad to leave behind."
