    THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW: SEASON FIVE (reviewed by Patrick Naugle, overall
    score 83/100):
    "Although the show is rooted in the mundane -- people going about their
    everyday business without much consequence -- it's still entertaining,
    funny, warm, and timeless."

    BAIAN THE ASSASSIN: VOLUME TWO (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall
    score 78/100):
    "The stories this time around are just as rich and complex, but they are
    also much more concise."

    THE FLINTSTONES: THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON (reviewed by Cynthia Boris,
    overall score 75/100):
    "Don't get me wrong, I'm a Family Guy fan, but a half hour without sex,
    violence, or vulgar humor is a refreshing change of pace."

    KING TUTANKHAMUN: THE MYSTERY UNSEALED (reviewed by Aaron Bossig,
    overall score 76/100):
    "By brushing off further analysis with 'we just don't know,' the program
    sells short the mystery it's attempting to show."

    NANAKA 6/17 (VOLUME ONE) (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score
    70/100):
    "Somehow, the humor comes from the awkward pacing, the cheesy
    situations, and the stupidity of the characters. I have, it seems, been
    approaching these shows all wrong. To truly enjoy them, it's necessary
    to revel in the weaknesses of the genre."

    THE PETER JENNINGS COLLECTION (reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall
    score 85/100):
    "All of the stories in The Peter Jennings Collection are probably worth
    watching once. Once. And that is exactly the problem."

    ROLLERGIRLS: THE COMPLETE SEASON ONE (reviewed by Mac McEntire, overall
    score 92/100):
    "I love the roller derby. Oh, stop looking at me like that. I can't
    help it. Maybe it's super-violent action and the borderline sense of
    anarchy. Maybe it's the sexy ladies. Maybe it's the 'alone at the
    laundromat' enjoyment of watching something going around and around in
    a circle. Maybe there's no explanation -- maybe it's just because it's
    roller derby."

    TAGGART: KILLER SET (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall score 66/100):
    "With a running time of more than two hours each, these episodes border
    on being painfully long. Watching these episodes, you can walk to the
    kitchen for a snack, maybe brew a cup of tea if you were in the mood,
    and return to find that absolutely nothing had transpired."

    THE TOMORROW PEOPLE: SET 3 (reviewed by Eric Profancik, overall
    score 75/100):
    "Now here I am, watching 'The Living Skins' where the aliens are nothing
    more than oversized, flesh-colored balloons. (Yes, if you look closely
    you can see the knots.) Bouncing around, the Balboids strike fear into
    everyone, but I'm just sitting on my couch wondering why anyone just
    doesn't stick a needle into them and pop them!"

    THE WHITE SHADOW: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Brendan
    Babish, overall score 78/100):
    "Ultimately, the show, which seems to have been created for a young
    crowd, has little to offer teenagers of the 21st century. Instead it can
    probably only be truly appreciated for its nostalgic value among those
    who watched its original broadcasts over 25 years ago."
