    ANGEL: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall
    score 92/100):
    "Roger Ebert often says if you could take the leads in any given gay
    film and make them heterosexual, and the film would still work, then
    they are on the right track. Unfortunately, that will never be the case,
    because there are extraordinarily unique experiences that will never
    translate to a heterosexual lifestyle."

    THE CASE-BOOK OF SHERLOCK HOLMES (reviewed by Maurice Cobbs, overall
    score 97/100):
    "It is a testament to Brett's amazing talent that his Holmes remains
    charming, whether racing along in a manic high, intensely concentrated
    on the trail of evidence, or sulking disconsolately at 221b between
    cases. We are always engrossed by the detective; although his portrayal
    of Holmes is so familiar that it feels right, there is an element of
    unpredictability about the character that keeps us guessing and never
    seems stale or staid."

    DOING TIME ON MAPLE DRIVE (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall
    score 70/100):
    "If you like extreme melodrama, this is a good rental choice for a night
    when Titanic and The Boy In The Plastic Bubble are checked out."

    HARSH REALM: THE COMPLETE SERIES (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall
    score 85/100):
    "We should now be starting into the fifth season of Harsh Realm on the
    Fox network. So much potential is shown in this brief introduction to
    the series, and we can now only imagine what the show may have grown
    into if it had been given the chance."

    HERCULES: THE LEGENDARY JOURNEYS, SEASON FOUR (reviewed by David
    Gutierrez, overall score 89/100):
    "This Hercules is one that can take and tell a joke, fights for what's
    right, and can cut a mean rug."

    SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE: THE BEST OF CHRIS KATTAN (reviewed by Lacey
    Worrell, overall score 75/100):
    "Despite the fact that E! Entertainment Television has recently procured
    the rights to run classic episodes of SNL, this 'Best of' series is a
    worthwhile investment for fans of Kattan or other individual cast
    members such as Phil Hartman, Will Ferrell, and Tracy Morgan. In any
    given episode of the television show, only about 20-30 minutes are
    really worth watching; these DVDs cull the most memorable characters
    into a reverent package."

    SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE: THE BEST OF TRACY MORGAN (reviewed by David
    Johnson, overall score 83/100):
    "I would say the disc is about fifty-fifty: half of it is good, half of
    it sucks. Again -- just like your typical SNL show."

    SCOOBY-DOO, WHERE ARE YOU?: THE COMPLETE FIRST AND SECOND SEASONS
    (reviewed by Michael Stailey, overall score 84/100):
    "Evil doers beware! These five amateur detectives have quite the amazing
    track record. Heck, they were the America's Most Wanted of their day.
    Although, I shudder to think of the criminal animosity that has built up
    over the years as a result of their actions. No wonder they're always on
    the road. Makes it harder for the bad guys to find them!"

    227: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Lacey Worrell, overall
    score 75/100):
    "Anyone can relate to the timeless themes and the solid acting. Watching
    this show twenty years later, despite some unevenness and the tendency
    to become slapstick at times, 227 still rings true."

    WITHOUT A TRACE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Lacey Worrell,
    overall score 90/100):
    "Digging into the lives of the missing often uncovers truths their
    families don't want to hear. Take, for instance, the episode that
    focuses on a missing businessman who also happens to be a bigamist, or
    the missing advertising executive who is a closet cocaine user. Viewers
    are led to wonder, 'If I went missing, what would people find out about
    me that I wouldn't want them to know?'"
