    COLOR: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON, THE JOE SCHMO SHOW: THE COMPLETE FIRST
    SEASON UNCENSORED, THE KING OF QUEENS: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON, THE
    MUNSTERS: THE FIRST FAMILY OF FRIGHT, NORTHERN EXPOSURE: THE COMPLETE
    FIRST SEASON, THE SID CAESAR COLLECTION: BURIED TREASURES, SIX FEET
    UNDER: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON, TRANSFORMERS: SEASON THREE, PART TWO
    AND SEASON FOUR, THE WEST WING: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON, and WHO'S
    THE BOSS?: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON:


    FUTURAMA: VOLUME TWO (reviewed by David Ryan, overall score 95/100):
    "Futurama is the thinking man's Simpsons -- sort of. It doesn't have the
    range of comedy that The Simpsons brings to the table, but it's deeper
    and more thoughtful in many ways. It's not surprising that fans of the
    show are so loyal -- it never once pandered to its audience, and
    constantly challenges you to keep up with its stream of references and
    parodies."

    IN LIVING COLOR: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Eric Profancik,
    overall score 84/100):
    "In Living Color is above all funny, even hilarious at times. It
    gloriously succeeded in making us laugh ourselves silly."

    THE JOE SCHMO SHOW: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON UNCENSORED (reviewed by
    Dennis Prince, overall score 85/100):
    "The funniest thing about Spike TV's The Joe Schmo Show, though, is how
    the featured schmo (Matt is his name) pushed a team of actors and
    producers to their own emotional limits when he, unknowingly of course,
    simply refused to be manipulated as intended."

    THE KING OF QUEENS: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Bill
    Treadway, overall score 94/100):
    "What makes the program so appealing is Kevin James's Everyman persona.
    You can relate to the dilemmas Doug Heffernan finds himself in each and
    every week. This is a hard-working man who does the same things you and
    I often do."

    THE MUNSTERS: THE FIRST FAMILY OF FRIGHT (reviewed by Paul Corupe,
    overall score 80/100):
    "Hitting store shelves on the same day as the Munsters: The Complete
    First Season is The Munsters: The First Family of Fright, two discs of
    supplemental material meant to cash in on Universal's dreadful
    omission."

    NORTHERN EXPOSURE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Dan Mancini,
    overall score 89/100):
    "At its heart, Northern Exposure is about PC shibboleths like
    multiculturalism, inclusion, tolerance, and a vague New Age
    spiritualism. It works, though, because it never puts moralizing ahead
    of story or character."

    THE SID CAESAR COLLECTION: BURIED TREASURES (reviewed by Bill Gibron,
    overall score 58/100):
    "To call this collection a mop job would be, perhaps, unfair, but one
    can hear the sound of a barrel bottom being scraped as some of these less-than-
    stellar skits play out."

    SIX FEET UNDER: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Patrick Naugle,
    overall score 95/100):
    "One of HBO's critical and commercial successes, Six Feet Under has
    become one of the most sharply written, emotionally stirring shows of
    the new millennium. And all that from a show about dead people!"

    TRANSFORMERS: SEASON THREE, PART TWO AND SEASON FOUR (reviewed by Adam
    Arseneau, overall score 88/100):
    "If, for some insane reason, you said you've have never heard of
    Transformers -- either the toys, or the cartoon, or the pop-culture
    references, I would probably call you a filthy liar, bust down your
    door, hurl open the door of your linen closet, and pull out your Optimus
    Prime bed sheets that you keep hidden. But on the off chance you were
    telling the truth...well, I would owe you an apology (and probably a
    door or two)."

    THE WEST WING: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Bill Gibron,
    overall score 92/100):
    "Instantly engrossing, incredibly smart, and about as authentic as a
    show about the White House can be, Aaron Sorkin's stellar saga
    challenges as it entertains, providing insight and interest in issues
    that normally Americans would tend to tune out over."

    WHO'S THE BOSS?: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Paul Corupe,
    overall score 69/100):
    "If there's anything more unbelievable than a former second baseman
    for the St. Louis Cardinals that needs to make ends meet by scrubbing
    toilets, then it's a seasoned advertising executive who is
    intimidated of her mother, New York City, and even asking a male co-
    worker out for a drink."
