    THE BOB NEWART SHOW: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Dennis
    Prince, overall score 76/100):
    "While the ensemble cast of The Bob Newhart Show was absolutely
    elemental to the show's success, it was the wonderfully straight-faced
    humor of the diminutive and dour Newhart that made the show work.
    Already a master of precision timing and reaction, thanks to his earlier
    comedy work, Newhart proved to be a perfect personality for '70s
    sitcoms, able to evoke genuinely hearty laughs often without ever
    uttering a word."

    DYNASTY: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall
    score 88/100):
    "This DVD set contains many episodes that explore the oil industry from
    the ground up, through the struggles of the decidedly unglamorous
    Blaisdales, and doesn't contain even one hint of a catfight between two
    women in garish shoulder pads. It's markedly different than the excess
    Dynasty proudly flaunted later in its run. Most of the stories are
    believable, and paced more realistically."

    THE JOB: THE COMPLETE SERIES (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall
    score 96/100):
    "Rarely does a television show put forth a protagonist so inherently
    repulsive and unlikable, while at the same time, so hilarious and
    downright sympathetic. McNeil is the kind of guy you would love to drink
    with at the bar all night into the wee hours, but who would be
    incredibly difficult to maintain as a close friend, or coworker, or
    father, or husband."

    MURDER, SHE WROTE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Amanda DeWees,
    overall score 83/100):
    "Energetic, independent, and quick to take the initiative, Jessica is
    exactly the kind of woman I'd like to be at that age -- heck, the kind
    of woman I'd like to be now. She was that rare creature in TV land: a
    retirement-aged woman who was active, interesting, and capable of
    carrying an entire series."

    MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 COLLECTION, VOLUME 7 (reviewed by Bill
    Gibron, overall score 94/100):
    "The argument against MST more or less fails. Asking Joel, Mike, and the
    Robots to resist the urge to attack these movies and their patently
    obvious flaws is absurd. Instead of tearing down the series, you should
    be supporting their efforts."

    POPULAR MECHANICS FOR KIDS: X-TREME SPORTS AND OTHER ACTION ADVENTURES
    (reviewed by Bryan Pope, overall score 90/100):
    "Charlie teaches kids how to produce enough water to survive in the
    desert using only a water bottle, a large piece of clear plastic and a
    small stone. Thankfully, it does not involve recycling urine."

    THE QUESTION OF GOD: SIGMUND FREUD AND C.S. LEWIS (reviewed by David
    Johnson, overall score 88/100):
    "Both Freud and Lewis receive equal time, so there is never any sense of
    tilt or bias in the narrative. What's on display is their lives and
    their musings; the editorializing comes during the discussion portions
    of the program, which address the major issues that belief (or
    nonbelief) present: a human moral code, grief and suffering, and so on."

    THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SERIES (reviewed by Joel
    Pearce, overall score 86/100):
    "Going from its production year, The Wind in the Willows was probably
    showing on television when I was young, but I somehow missed it amongst
    episodes of Inspector Gadget and He-Man. In retrospect, I think my time
    could have been better spent. The Wind in the Willows looks and feels
    somewhat dated now, but it still has a lot to offer both children and
    adults who watch shows with them."

    WORLD POKER TOUR: SEASON TWO (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall
    score 87/100):
    "With poker, not only can anyone grab a deck and start up a game with
    their friends, but almost all the tournaments featured on World Poker
    Tour are open to the public. If you want to pony up the entrance fee,
    then you (yes, you!) could find yourself rubbing elbows beside poker
    greats like T.J. Cloutier, Johnny Chan, and Phil Hellmuth Jr., and
    experience the thrill of having them take every single dime you own."
