    ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by David
    Johnson, overall score 97/100):
    "If you're offended when I call you stupid for not liking Arrested
    Development, tough. That's what you are -- stupid!"

    CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Patrick
    Naugle, overall score 90/100):
    "Curb Your Enthusiasm may not be the best show on television, but it is
    one of the funniest comedies to come along in quite some time. Larry
    David proves that he's not only a great writer, but also a funny actor
    (even if he's just playing an exaggerated version of himself)."

    DAWSON'S CREEK: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON (reviewed by Rob Lineberger,
    overall score 80/100):
    "As disgusted as I was with myself for slavish adherence to this soul-
    sucking, mind-numbing ennui, I could not turn away. Dawson's supreme
    arrogance, Joey's compelling lip machinations, Pacey's amiable antics,
    and Jen's slut-in-a-sundress routine kept me glued."

    5IVE DAYS TO MIDNIGHT (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 87/100):
    "What I was impressed by is the script's willingness to grapple with the
    scientific issues involved with that kind of time travel and the dangers
    of changing destiny. It isn't subtle, and at times it's downright heavy-
    handed, but I have to admit to enjoying a good exploration of the fate
    vs. free will issue."

    FRANKENSTEIN (2004) (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 69/100):
    "Here we just want to give The Creature a big hug and have him read some
    Milton to us. I wanted to hire the Creature as a personal trainer and
    have him cut my hair."

    FRASIER: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON (reviewed by Patrick Naugle, overall
    score 94/100):
    "Unlike many sitcoms, Frasier got funnier as the show grew older. Not
    content to delve into fart jokes and crude humor to find its laughs, the
    show has always been able to maintain a high standard that continued
    through to the final season."

    ROSWELL: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall
    score 87/100):
    "I don't think it's a coincidence that one of the producers played
    Captain William T. Riker, because this show is Star Trek in reverse.
    Where the Enterprise boldly went where no man had gone before, here we
    have a trio of aliens sent to explore Earth and what it means to be
    human. Gene Roddenberry would have loved the way the show taps into
    mysticism and spirituality while espousing diversity and teamwork."

    SALEM'S LOT (2004) (reviewed by Maurice Cobbs, overall score 87/100):
    "These are not the beautiful vampires of the Ann Rice set; these vamps
    scuttle like vermin, like cockroaches, slithering into the dark crevices
    of the town during the light of day. They are repugnant, every bit as
    repugnant as the hidden lives of Jerusalem's Lot's residents."

    SPARTACUS: THE COMPLETE TV MINISERIES (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway,
    overall score 70/100):
    "The miniseries opens with Varinia's village being attacked and her
    being captured by Roman soldiers, so we know nothing of the character's
    life before she was sold into slavery. If I had to make an educated
    guess from the evidence supplied here, though, I'd say she was a
    philosopher, teacher, and military strategist."

    STAR TREK: VOYAGER, SEASON FIVE (reviewed by Sandra Dozier, overall
    score 92/100):
    "Season Five finally gets it just right, delivering 25 solid,
    entertaining episodes that harmonize technology with heart. We accept
    the fantastic technology because we connect with the characters, and we
    connect with characters because we dream about fantastic technology."

    SUPERMAN: A LITTLE PIECE OF HOME (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall
    score 75/100):
    "It's a fun series, but I can't help but view this disc as just an
    appetizer for the season discs, which will be released starting in
    late January."

    WACKY RACES: THE COMPLETE SERIES (reviewed by Maurice Cobbs, overall
    score 98/100):
    "Wacky Races is a cartoon version of such madcap movies as The Great
    Race . It's a splendid throwback to the days of pure slapstick, with the
    sort of smart but silly surreal comedy that cartoons today often attempt
    to capture but rarely succeed at."

    THE WEST WING: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON (reviewed by Diane Wild,
    overall score 97/100):
    "Ahh, Season Three. Back before The West Wing became The Deadly Earnest
    Wing. Back before producer John Wells of ER fame took over the creative
    helm, performed a humorectomy, and started sending characters to the
    hospital with alarming frequency. He must be kicking himself for not
    having the prescience to set ER in Washington -- imagine the crossover
    possibilities."
