Seinfeld: The Complete Series


Seinfeld stars Jerry Seinfeld as a stand-up comedian whose life in New York City is made even more chaotic by his quirky group of friends who join him in wrestling with life’s most perplexing, yet often trivial questions. Often described as “a show about nothing,” Seinfeld mines the humor in life’s mundane situations like waiting in line, searching for a lost item, or the trials and tribulations of dating. Co-starring are Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Jerry’s ex-girlfriend and current platonic pal, Elaine Benes; Jason Alexander as George Costanza, Jerry’s neurotic hard-luck best friend; and Michael Richards as Jerry’s eccentric neighbor, Kramer. This highly renowned sitcom set the bar in comedy with some of the most hilariously watchable characters in television history.

Lost in Space – The Complete First Season


Season 1 of the 1965 sci-fi favorite.Lost in Space began life in 1965 as a science-fiction take on The Swiss Family Robinson. Produced by Irwin Allen, then in the midst of his run of spectacular-but-childish TV sci-fi (before he became the master of big-screen disaster movies), the show featured a family of all-American space colonists cast away on a mysterious planet. Gradually the whole thing devolved into a silly (but sometimes fun) exercise in childish camp. This boxed set includes all 29 black and white episodes from the first season (with a burst of color at the end of the last show–a foretaste of the garish look of the remaining two seasons) along with “No Place to Hide,” the expensive pilot show that sold the series but prompted Allen to revamp the whole premise in comic mode when network execs responded best to its unintended humor.

“No Place to Hide” has action scenes that cropped up in the first six regular episodes but is missing several of the show’s trademark aspects, most notably that infectious theme from Johnny Williams (later, John Williams of Star Wars fame) and the scheming presence of Dr. Smith (Jonathan Harris) and his alternately menacing and comical robot (“It does not compute”). As the series progresses (or degenerates, depending on your taste), Harris’s Smith changes from pantomime villain, a saboteur who is trying to kill the family, into pantomime idiot whose foolishness, cowardice, and avarice are an endless source of plots. It mostly makes do with the regular cast plus an array of shaggy-suited, snarling aliens, but you do get sterling ham from visiting astronauts such as Warren Oates (“Welcome Stranger”), Robby the Robot from Forbidden Planet (“War of the Robots”), and a very young Kurt Russell (“The Challenge”). Stories about surviving on an alien world give way to lifts from fairy tale, myth, and old movies as Smith gets hold of a wishing cap, becomes a giant, is chosen as a sacrificial king, turns the children over to an alien zoo, squeaks in fright as a werewolf approaches, or is cursed with a platinum Midas touch. –Kim Newman

Psych: The Complete Third Season


Fake psychic detective Shawn Spencer (James Roday) and his best friend Gus (Dulé Hill) are cracking the case – and cracking up audiences everywhere – in all 16 Season Three episodes from the quick-witted detective series Psych. After earning a reputation for taking on the unusual cases that leave most sleuths scratching their heads, Shawn and Gus are in for more mayhem this season as they tackle mysteries that range from the decidedly abnormal to the hauntingly paranormal. Join guest stars Cybill Shepherd (The L Word), Gary Cole (Pineapple Express), Phylicia Rashad (A Raisin in the Sun) and many more in this fresh and funny show that Maureen Ryan of Chicago Tribune declares, “Roday and Hill have the kind of chemistry you just can’t manufacture.”As Psych‘s second year drew to a close, Gus (Dulé Hill) had become a pharmaceutical rep and Shawn (James Roday) welcomed his long-lost mother, Madeleine (Cybill Shepherd), back to town. In all other respects, the show remains the same. Gus just has two jobs instead of one, and the detecting continues. Later, Shawn reconnects with his treasure-hunting Uncle Jack (Steven Weber) and former flame Abigail (Rachael Leigh Cook), who seems likely to return in the future. The same goes for Chief Vick’s sister, Coast Guard Commander Dunlap (Jane Lynch), who has eyes for the still-married Lassie (Timothy Omundson).

Other highlights include “Talk Derby to Me,” in which Jules (Maggie Lawson) infiltrates a roller-derby team in order to catch some thieves, “Lassie Did a Bad, Bad Thing,” in which Shawn and Gus race to protect their uptight colleague’s good name, “Tuesday, the 17th,” a surprisingly scary take-off on Friday the 13th, and “Murder?… Anyone?… Anyone?… Bueller?,” a high school reunion episode filled with references to the generation-defining films of the late John Hughes. And just to keep the fan worship going, Ferris Bueller‘s Alan Ruck and The Breakfast Club‘s All Sheedy make guest appearances during the season.

If this 16-episode set drags a little in the middle, Psych continues to bring the funny, and the entire cast has an appealing chemistry (we even find out a little more about Kirsten Nelson’s Vick, such as her affection for Phil Collins). Like previous sets, this one includes a gag reel, above-average deleted scenes, and 12 commentary tracks split three ways: audio, podcast (without show dialogue), and video (on-screen interviews with the writers about specific episodes). Granted, the doubling of overcast Vancouver for sunny Santa Barbara remains completely unconvincing, but you can’t win ’em all. –Kathleen C. Fennessy

The Honeymooners : Lost Episodes 1951-1957 (The Complete Restored Series)


One of television’s most influential and beloved programs, The Honeymooners first appeared in 1951 as a series of sketches on the DuMont network’s “Cavalcade of Stars” starring Jackie Gleason. The following year Gleason moved to CBS, where “The Jackie Gleason Show” featured numerous Honeymooners sketches and full length shows from 1952 to 1957. These shows aired live and were never rebroadcast.
For decades, these early HONEYMOONERS telecasts were lost until Jackie Gleason began releasing them from his private film vault. Now, in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the very first HONEYMOONERS sketches, MPI Home Video and Jackie Gleason Enterprises present the most complete collection possible of these rare gems, many of which have not been seen anywhere in 50 years or available previously on DVD.
It’s a treasure trove of the hilarious antics of hapless Brooklyn bus driver Ralph Kramden (Jackie Gleason), his long-suffering but loving wife Alice (Audrey Meadows), Ralph’s neighbor and pal, sewer worker Ed Norton (Art Carney) and Norton’s wife Trixie (Joyce Randolph).
 This is a must-have collection for any fan of classic television comedy which appeals to laugh-loving viewers of all ages.

The Flintstones – The Complete First Season


<![CDATA[

Flintstones, The: The Complete First Season (DVD)

Join the fun in the town of Bedrock with the this fabulously famous modern Stone-Age family. Mowing the lawn with a saw-toothed dinosaur, showering with water sprayed from a woolly mammoth’s trunk and eating brontosaurus burgers are everyday events for the lovable Fred and Wilma Flintstone and their friends Barney and Betty Rubble. Living in prehistoric times has its drawbacks, but the Flintstones and their neighbors survive in style. So have a yabba-dabba-doo time with the The Flintstones.

]]>Meet The Flintstones in this prehistoric Hanna-Barbera production. Primetime’s first animated series was also the longest running until The Simpsons came along. Not so coincidentally, the two shows aren’t all that different–even if the former emerged in the sixties, the latter in the eighties. Fred (Alan Reed), patriarch of the cave-dwelling clan, may be marginally more intelligent than the similarly blue collar Homer, but most storylines still revolve around his more dunderheaded moves. Fortunately, wife Wilma (Jean Vander Pyl) and Barney (Mel Blanc) and Betty Rubble (Bea Benaderet), their neighbors, are usually able to set things right. That was also true for Ralph Cramden of The Honeymooners, a direct influence (Reed even sounds like Jackie Gleason). But Ralph didn’t have a pet dinosaur and he did live in the Modern Age–if you can call the fifties “modern”–rather than the Stone Age.

This long-awaited DVD set includes all 28 episodes of the first season, including the lost Flagstones pilot. Notable segments include “Hot Lips Hannigan”–one of several riffs on beatnik culture–in which Fred, aka “The Velvet Smog,” sings and Barney beats the traps and “The Creature From the Tar Pits,” in which Fred fills in as Gary Granite’s stunt double in a Bedrock-set horror flick.

The Flintstones‘s first season introduced two timeless couples from another time. Its success led to a theatrical release, two live-action features, and countless specials and spin-offs. New viewers may be surprised to find that Dino doesn’t make his official entrance until episode 18 (“The Snorkasaurus Story”), that Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm aren’t in the first season at all, and that the famous theme won’t hit the airwaves until the third (replacing instrumental “Rise and Shine”). Those quirky quotes, however, were in effect from the start: “Wiiilmaaaaaaa!,” “Droll, very droll” and, especially, “Yabba-dabba-doo!!!” –Kathleen C. Fennessy
