    A GHOST, BAIAN THE ASSASSIN: VOLUME ONE, FRIENDS: THE ONE WITH ALL THE
    WEDDINGS, IN LIVING COLOR: SEASON FIVE, THE KIDS IN THE HALL: THE

    COMPLETE SERIES, POSTCARDS FROM BUSTER: BUSTER'S WORLD OF SPORTS, and
    WHERE ON EARTH IS CARMEN SANDIEGO?: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON:


    THE BACKYARDIGANS: IT'S GREAT TO BE A GHOST (reviewed by David Johnson,
    overall score 90/100):
    "The premise is simple: each episode the friends put their active
    imaginations to work in their backyard and go on an adventure. Along
    the way, they frequently break into song and dance numbers. It's all
    very simple stuff, of course, but this is a show geared toward little,
    little kids."

    BAIAN THE ASSASSIN: VOLUME ONE (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall
    score 75/100):
    "The biggest problem with Baian the Assassin is the extraordinary
    company in which it finds itself. There have been many better film and
    television series set in the samurai era (think Lone Wolf and Cub or
    Zatoichi)."

    FRIENDS: THE ONE WITH ALL THE WEDDINGS (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall
    score 86/100):
    "I was (and still am, to some degree) a grumpy little cynic when it
    comes to this show. I can appreciate some of the special episodes and
    performances (and yeah, I watched when Ross and Rachel first got
    together), but by and large, it wasn't my cup of tea, so there."

    IN LIVING COLOR: SEASON FIVE (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall
    score 69/100):
    "When you combine the knowledge that the Wayans brothers all but
    abandoned their brainchild due to constant interference and censorship
    with the disclaimer emblazoned proudly on the back of the packaging
    stating that 'some content has been edited for this DVD,' it is not hard
    to understand why Season Five is inherently problematic."

    THE KIDS IN THE HALL: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON (reviewed by Paul
    Corupe, overall score 93/100):
    "By the end of The Kids in the Hall's third season, arguably the show's
    finest, the Kids had mastered this anarchic brand of sketch comedy.
    They also knew how to present it, building an unmistakable rhythm by
    mixing short and long pieces, monologues, sketches and location work.
    As egos grew, however, the troupe members began to focus on their
    individual talents."

    KNIGHT RIDER: SEASON THREE (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall
    score 68/100):
    "My childhood was dashed on the rocks of harsh reality when I reviewed
    Knight Rider: Season Two, so I don't know why I requested Season Three.
    I guess the pull of nostalgia is that strong. Somewhere in the back of
    my primitive memory a ten-year-old is saying 'Dude, I'm not crazy, this
    show is awesome!'"

    ODYSSEY 5: THE COMPLETE SERIES (reviewed by Mac McEntire, overall
    score 85/100):
    "Peter Weller doesn't just act cool in this series, he is cool. He's
    nothing but tough-guy Texas swagger combined with old-fashioned American
    do-goodism. Putting him in a NASA jacket and giving him a cigar only
    completes the package."

    POSTCARDS FROM BUSTER: BUSTER'S WORLD OF SPORTS (reviewed by David
    Johnson, overall score 70/100):
    "Fans of the series -- God help them -- should get their fill of one-
    camera documentary work narrated by a pansy."

    WHERE ON EARTH IS CARMEN SANDIEGO?: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed
    by Mac McEntire, overall score 76/100):
    "So, basically, the series is one big geography lesson, but at least
    it's one with explosions and butt-kicking."
