    score 65/100):
    "More work on laying out these various story points would have benefited
    the movie as a whole, and then we'd only have the poor effects work to
    worry about."

    HERE COME THE BRIDES: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Cynthia
    Boris, overall score 85/100):
    "What do you get when you cross two teen idols with a hunky
    Shakespearean actor, a former Hollywood screen siren and Spock's
    father? You get a family-oriented dramedy with a quirky hook and a lot
    of charm."

    LAW AND ORDER, TRIAL BY JURY: THE COMPLETE SERIES (reviewed by David
    Johnson, overall score 85/100):
    "There's just something about a couple of hard-ass babes outmaneuvering
    hapless bad guys in the courtroom that is appealing."

    NERO WOLFE: THE COMPLETE CLASSIC WHODUNIT SERIES (reviewed by James A.
    Stewart, overall score 86/100):
    "The protagonist's agoraphobic tendencies make Nero Wolfe something
    that has eluded budget-minded TV producers for decades: the perfect
    'bottle show.'"

    TAKE ME (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 60/100):
    "If I spend six hours with a group of characters, I should feel some
    sympathy for them at the end. Here, I just wanted it to be over."

    3RD ROCK FROM THE SUN: SEASON FOUR (reviewed by Dennis Prince, overall
    score 93/100):
    "Tightly written and exuberantly performed, the show packs the same sort
    of high-energy laughs that had helped make the show a surprise hit from
    the first episode."

    THUNDERCATS: SEASON TWO, VOLUME ONE (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 84/100):
    "Lion-O and his crew wowed me with incoherent animated action spectacles
    and I forked over $5 for the ability to use Tygra's spring-loaded attack
    arm to flick my brother's ear until it bled."

    TR: THE STORY OF TEDDY ROOSEVELT (reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall
    score 90/100):
    "No extras, no subtitles, no bells and whistles -- just a solid
    documentary that covers the necessary bases without any real surprises.
    If you don't know Teddy Roosevelt, TR is a great way to learn about the
    man and his times."

    TRUMAN (reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall score 88/100):
    "We never see Truman as a great strategist, but as an ordinary guy who
    basically muddled through on a combination of tenacity and moral
    conviction. Maybe it is Truman's very mediocrity that makes him an
    interesting figure, at least from a historical perspective."
