    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW: THE
    COMPLETE FIRST SEASON, DAWSON'S CREEK: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON, I LOVE
    LUCY: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON, THE KIDS IN THE HALL: THE COMPLETE
    SECOND SEASON, MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000: THE ESSENTIALS, and THE REN
    AND STIMPY SHOW: THE FIRST AND SECOND SEASONS:


    THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Amanda
    DeWees, overall score 93/100):
    "The humor is always gentle, compassionate, never cruel. Even though
    Barney -- for example -- makes a fool of himself in his eagerness to see
    criminal activity in a game of checkers and frequently comes to grief
    because of his vanity, the show, like the people of Mayberry, takes an
    indulgent stance toward him."

    DAWSON'S CREEK: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON (reviewed by Bryan Byun,
    overall score 70/100):
    "Season Three poses a thorny question: Can the writers be excused for
    presenting hackneyed, melodramatic storylines and cheesy dialogue, if
    they make darn sure that we know that they know that it's hackneyed,
    melodramatic, and cheesy?"

    I LOVE LUCY: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Bill Gibron,
    overall score 95/100):
    "It is hard to argue with perfection (so they say), and that is exactly
    what I Love Lucy is. Flawlessly written, faultlessly performed, and as
    timeless as an artist's masterpiece, television owes its very soul to a
    batty redhead and her flummoxed foreign hubby. While many may look at
    this half-century old comedy and complain about its corny, gentile humor
    and reliance on physical comedy, there was never a better example of
    ensemble excellence on television before or since."

    THE KIDS IN THE HALL: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Paul
    Corupe, overall score 93/100):
    "Both SCTV's awe-inspiring hodgepodge of poisonous satire and the later,
    sophisticated stupidity of The Kids in the Hall rank not only among
    Canada's finest comedy moments, but they stand alongside Monty Python's
    Flying Circus and Saturday Night Live as some of the most memorable
    sketch comedy shows ever made."

    MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000: THE ESSENTIALS (reviewed by a panel,
    overall score 98/100):
    "And in the opposite, right-makes-might, corner, coming in at a svelte
    and beefcakey 194 pounds, ready to make each and every one of you his
    'Saturday night thing,' it's Patrick 'The Zen Master' Swayze. Hobbled
    only by a hairdo that crosses a mullet with a shag (a mag? Or perhaps a
    shullet?) and that stupid ballad from Dirty Dancing ('She's Like the
    Wind' is indeed a substantial handicap), 'the Swayz' will be utilizing a
    combination of martial arts and incredible matinee-idol good looks to
    defend a nauseating Noel number called Santa Claus Conquers the
    Martians. It should be a tremendous fight."

    THE REN AND STIMPY SHOW: THE FIRST AND SECOND SEASONS (reviewed by
    Patrick Naugle, overall score 90/100):
    "I shall not pretend to have a deep knowledge base of the cartoon show
    Ren & Stimpy. In fact, I won't pretend to have a knowledge base on
    anything -- some days I feel lucky enough that I'm able to get out of
    bed and pick my nose without poking myself in the brain, causing massive
    swelling that would kill me instantly."
