    OSBOURNES: SEASON 2.5, SCTV: VOLUME 2, A TOUCH OF FROST: THE COMPLETE

    SEASON FOUR:


    DALLAS: THE COMPLETE FIRST AND SECOND SEASONS (reviewed by Brett Cullum,
    overall score 86/100):
    "It inspired me in strange ways. I wore a hat and boots to the office,
    but nobody said much -- because, thankfully, I live in Texas (where this
    still is proper corporate attire in many cases). The only thing they got
    miffed about was when I insisted they could not see my red files, and
    when I began plotting to blackmail and seduce all my co-workers."

    LEMON SKY (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall score 22/100):
    "It is difficult to explain the way that Lemon Sky drains your will to
    live. Perhaps it is the 'score,' which consists of periodic, random
    drumbeats. Maybe it is the jittery, jumpy, transitioning Kevin Bacon,
    who is here then there, then here and there simultaneously."

    MAGGIE AND THE FEROCIOUS BEAST: PUZZLES AND PICNICS (reviewed by David
    Johnson, overall score 82/100):
    "He's certainly good-natured enough for a so-called 'ferocious' beast,
    but he's prone to envy and low self-esteem. This may arise from the fact
    that he is extraordinarily ugly and sports a noticeable lack of feet."

    NBC NEWS PRESENTS: THE LAST DAYS OF JESUS (reviewed by David Johnson,
    overall score 86/100):
    "From the Triumphal Entry to the Last Supper to the betrayal by Judas,
    then on to the torturous march to Golgotha, the special walks the viewer
    through the events in Jesus's life, while sprinkling in theories and
    observations from the scholars and repetitive shots of Renaissance
    paintings."

    OBSESSED (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 80/100):
    "This movie should have been renamed Jenna Elfman in Her Underwear. Be
    it lingerie or her skivvies, Elfman's Ellena Roberts prefers her on-
    screen time to be as revealing as possible. (This isn't necessarily a
    criticism.)"

    THE OSBOURNES: SEASON 2.5 (reviewed by Eric Profancik, overall
    score 84/100):
    "This season, we get to watch Jack fall. We get to see Jack's head
    swell, giving him that air of invincible coolness, yet he's still a
    dorky, pudgy kid with a rock star father. Jack thinks much too highly of
    himself, thinks far too little about others, and steps onto the path of
    substance abuse that will soon lead him to rehab (not part of this
    season). The low point of the season -- and subsequently of Jack -- is
    in 'Fists of Fury' when Jack loses all control, and so does Kelly. It's
    not enjoyable to see this; it just made me sad to see what can happen
    when fame blankets a person in delusions of grandeur."

    SCTV: VOLUME 2 (reviewed by David Ryan, overall score 94/100):
    "I've carried these sketches, characters, and gags around in my head
    for years. Do I have a greater appreciation for them now, when I
    actually know some of what was being parodied? You betcha. (Not to be
    confused with SCTV character Hugh Betcha, of course.) But it's the rare
    show that can appeal to the same person to the same extent at age 12
    and at age 34."

    A TOUCH OF FROST: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON (reviewed by Amanda DeWees,
    overall score 88/100):
    "The world in which Frost lives -- a world we recognize as our own -- is
    not a happy or a just one, but it's reassuring to see a good (if flawed)
    man working to make it better."

    VENDETTA FOR THE SAINT (reviewed by David Gutierrez, overall
    score 85/100):
    "Fans of the James Bond series of films might find it hard to divorce
    Moore from his 'shaken, not stirred' persona; those fans would be doing
    themselves a disservice. Moore's Templar is every bit as smooth as Bond,
    but darker."

    XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS, SEASON FOUR (reviewed by David Gutierrez,
    overall score 91/100):
    "Xena: Warrior Princess, Season Four puts its characters through the
    wringer and leaves the viewer dangling. By setting expectations at the
    beginning of the series through a series of visions of the future, Xena
    was in danger of writing itself into a corner. Thankfully, what would
    have been a crutch for most series is one its greatest strengths."
