    TOUR: THE BEST OF SEASON THREE:


    ALIEN NATION: THE COMPLETE SERIES (reviewed by Cynthia Boris, overall
    score 92/100):
    "Powerful plots about hate crimes, exploitation, and societal
    hierarchies keep this from being just another cop show."

    THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by
    Cynthia Boris, overall score 80/100):
    "Long before he was an alien ass-kicking Man in Black, Will Smith
    donned his Technicolor dreamcoat as a West Philly homeboy who gets
    exiled to uncle's home in Bel-Air. It's a basic fish out of water tale
    that is made oh-so watchable thanks to the go-for-the-gusto comedy of
    Smith himself."

    MAD TV: THE BEST OF SEASONS 8, 9, AND 10 (reviewed by Patrick Bromley,
    overall score 73/100):
    "I've held a theory for some time that watching the Fox network's late-
    night sketch show, MAD TV, is a lot like watching the variety show of a
    high school I've never attended: an entire audience seems to be cheering
    for characters I'm not familiar with and laughing at things I don't
    recognize as funny. Not just that I don't find it funny, mind you, but
    that I don't even understand how it could be funny."

    THE MIDNIGHT BLUE COLLECTION: CELEBRITIES EDITION (reviewed by Bill
    Gibron, overall score 92/100):
    "When you toss in the list of stars speaking out - O.J. Simpson, Arnold
    Schwarzenegger, R. Crumb, Gilbert Gottfried, Penn & Teller, Debbie
    Harry, and Al 'Grandpa Munster' Lewis -- it's a must own trip down a
    very mangled and misguided memory lane. Those who remember the show will
    be delighted to own these highlights (they are not full episodes -- call
    it a clip collection). Others will have their eyes opened by the frank,
    funny, and occasionally freakish quality of this carnal cavalcade."

    THE MIND OF THE MARRIED MAN: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by
    Patrick Bromley, overall score 83/100):
    "Surely, the minds of married men consist of more than wanting to sleep
    with other women, and Binder's show might be too quick to forget that."

    MURDER, SHE WROTE: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Cynthia
    Boris, overall score 80/100):
    "After a long career on stage and in the movies, Lansbury's move to TV
    was a magic charm. She represented a category of women rarely ever seen
    on TV (let alone in a starring role), and she brought a vitality and
    energy that I wish I had now at my age!"

    THE RIFLEMAN: BOXED SET 3 (reviewed by Cynthia Boris, overall
    score 85/100):
    "The Rifleman has a standard of moral decency that is unheard on TV
    today (except perhaps for Seventh Heaven). It's not unusual for father
    and son say, 'I love you' at least once per episode. I know, all you die
    hard western fans are out there scratching your heads. Morality, love,
    and a quick-shot rifle?"

    THE SPORTS PAGES (reviewed by Michael Rankins, overall score 54/100):
    "Please tell me you didn't actually purchase this. Unless you picked it
    up in the dollar bin at Wal-Mart."

    THE TOMORROW SHOW: PUNK AND NEW WAVE (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall
    score 64/100):
    "Snyder didn't really promote the bands that came on the show, but he
    did help give them a chance to be experienced in a broader way that
    radio wasn't doing for them at the time. Most of the time, he managed to
    give them a relatable factor to Joe Sixpack who viewed the show in
    Podunk, Kansas."

    WORLD POKER TOUR: THE BEST OF SEASON THREE (reviewed by Ryan Keefer,
    overall score 83/100):
    "There are several shows featuring poker on the market for those curious
    about the art of the bluff, and it appears that the other networks are
    realizing what ESPN has known for several years; that poker is fairly
    compelling to watch, even more so when there's hundreds of thousands of
    dollars on the line."
