    My name is earl dvd review

     

    One of the best new shows of the past several years, My Name Is Earl follows the life of Earl Hickey (Jason Lee), a man who discovers karma while lying in a hospital bed. Celebrating a $100,000 scratch-off lottery ticket, Earl gets hit by a car and knocked unconscious. His lottery ticket escapes in the wind, and Earl is hurried to the hospital where a revelation from Carson Daly hits him like a ton of bricks. Convinced that his bad luck is the result of bad karma, Earl compiles a list of everything he’s done wrong from grade school to the present, and he’s intent on fixing every bullet point on his list… Nominated for two Golden Globes in its first season, My Name Is Earl won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite New Television Comedy. Created by Gregory Thomas Garcia, creator of the popular Yes, Dear, the series is certain to be a favorite for years to come with its eccentric characters, brilliant writing, and infinite episode possibilities (no doubt the list will grow as Earl tackles each thing on it)… Joining Earl on his quest are his dim, yet innocent brother Randy (Ethan Suplee), friend and illegal alien hotel maid Catalina (Nadine Velazquez), Earl’s trailer trash ex-wife Joy (Jaime Pressly), and Joy’s new husband Darnell “Crabman” Turner (Eddie Staples). Also along for the ride is $100,000 in lottery winnings. Even though Earl lost the lottery ticket when he got hit by the car, his newfound dedication to the principles of karma pays immediate dividends when a gust of wind places the missing ticket right in front of his feet. With the money at their disposal, Earl and Randy dedicate themselves full-time to the task of crossing things off Earl’s list. It’s a quest that makes for some of the most interesting and comedic moments in television history… The My Name Is Earl DVD features twenty-four hilarious episodes including the season premiere in which Earl sets out to help a former grade school classmate he used to pick on relentlessly, Kenny James (Gregg Binkley). Learning that Kenny is gay and lonely, Earl works overtime to find Kenny a partner… Other notable episodes from season one include “Stole Beer From A Golfer” in which Earl and Randy must pay back a golfer (Johnny Galecki) who they cheated out of free beer (a difficult task once they realize their actions have ruined his life), and the season finale, “Number One,” in which Earl sets out to rectify the number one thing on his list: “stole ten dollars from a guy in the convenience store”. But #1 becomes the most difficult item on Earl’s list when he realizes the guy he stole the ten dollars from would have used it to buy the $100,000 lottery ticket. In order to placate karma, Earl must not only give back the $10, but the entire $100,000… Below is a list of episodes included on the My Name Is Earl (Season 1) DVD: Episode 1 (Pilot) Air Date: 09-20-2005 Episode 2 (Quit Smoking) Air Date: 09-27-2005 Episode 3 (Randy’s Touchdown) Air Date: 10-04-2005 Episode 4 (Faked His Own Death) Air Date: 10-11-2005 Episode 5 (Teacher Earl) Air Date: 10-18-2005 Episode 6 (Broke Joy’s Fancy Figurine) Air Date: 11-01-2005 Episode 7 (Stole Beer From A Golfer) Air Date: 11-08-2005 Episode 8 (Joy’s Wedding) Air Date: 11-15-2005 Episode 9 (Cost Dad The Election) Air Date: 11-22-2005 Episode 10 (White Lie Christmas) Air Date: 12-06-2005 Episode 11 (Barn Burner) Air Date: 01-05-2006 Episode 12 (O Karma, Where Art Thou?)

    Napoleon dynamite dvd review

     

    One of the more absurd movies of the decade, Napoleon Dynamite nonetheless manages to be a hilarious comedy in its own right. Featuring a unique brand of alienated-teenage humor, the film relies more on its well-timed pauses and character body language than on zinging one-liners. If you enjoy its subtle humor, then Napoleon Dynamite is a film you'll find utterly hilarious. Otherwise, it might cause boredom or outright confusion. The film has a near non-existent storyline, but what it lacks in plot, it makes up for with its witty and hilarious comedy sequences… Jon Heder plays the title role of Napoleon Dynamite, an estranged and nerdy high school youth living with his grandmother and older brother, Kip (Aaron Ruell), in Preston, Idaho. Sporting a clueless, unchanging facial expression throughout the movie, Napoleon simply glides through life, getting kicked around, pushed into lockers, and watching life pass by. When a Spanish student named Pedro (Efren Ramirez) moves into town, Napoleon befriends the social outcast. The two drone on and on about myriad subjects, such as who to take to the upcoming dance. Fellow socially-challenged student Deb (Tina Majorino) becomes the object of their affections. Meanwhile, Kip trolls the Internet chat rooms in search of women, and Napoleon's Uncle Rico (Jon Gries) moves in with the boys while their grandmother is away. Uncle Rico's own exploits add to the hilarity of a film with little in the way of substance, at least until Pedro decides to run for class president against the school's most popular girl, Summer (Haylie Duff). Now, Napoleon and Pedro must work against all odds to win the school election… The true strength of Napoleon Dynamite is its clan of outrageous characters, characters that are so outrageously ridiculous that every viewer can point out the mirror image of that character from his own high school yearbook or current life experience. The arrested social development of Napoleon and his friends are amplified for effect within the film's context, drawing the viewer into a Lord of the Flies world of Darwinian adolescence. The humor is sometimes subtle, and Napoleon Dynamite is not to be confused with an Academy Award winning drama. But if you like stupid movies such Dumb And Dumber, then this is the film for you. Napoleon Dynamite is a unique comedy which pushes the boundaries of plot-challenged, immature filmmaking. In short, you'll love it. Most of the characters are so pathetic, you'll find yourself laughing at them simply because they exist. One of the biggest surprises of 2004, Napoleon Dynamite is an oddball comedy that definitely ranks as a must-see movie…

         
    National lampoon s christmas vacation dvd review

     

    Hands down, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is the best Christmas-themed comedy ever filmed. Personally, I make it habit to watch this movie about ten million times between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. Even after seeing the film so many times that I can recite it word-for-word, Christmas Vacation remains as hilarious and entertaining as the previous holiday season. More than just a seasonal film, it’s one of those rare comedies that it near perfect from beginning to end. Christmas Vacation follows the ongoing exploits of Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) and the Griswold family, but this particular rendition of the classic Vacation movies is arguably the best. As in the previous films, Clark’s goal is to create the perfect vacation for his family. Only this time, instead of hitting the road for Wally World or flying to Europe, the Griswolds stay at home in suburban Chicago. Julia Louis-Dreyfus (mere months away from signing on for the role of Elaine on Seinfeld) makes several appearances as Clark’s annoying, yuppie neighbor Margot, a character accompanied by her equally elitist yuppie partner, Todd (Nicholas Guest). Randy Quaid makes a return appearance as Cousin Eddie, playing the same role from the original Vacation film. As Clark’s unsophisticated and backward relative, Eddie is a man whose “heart is bigger than his brain”. Beverly D’Angelo also returns in her previous role as Clark’s wife, Ellen. When Clark vows to create “the most fun-filled old-fashioned family Christmas ever,” things naturally go awry. With the Griswold family and their in-laws living under one roof, the relatives constantly get on each others’ nerves. Clark sets out to decorate the house for Christmas, and his quest culminates in a 25,000 light extravaganza that covers every square inch of the house. In the process, he nearly breaks his neck several times and knocks out Todd and Margot’s window with a flying lance of roof gutter ice. The laughs multiply several times over when Cousin Eddie arrives uninvited and parks his RV in the Griswold driveway. In tow are his wife Catherine, their two kids Ruby Sue and Rocky, and their lovely dog “Snots”. The crescendo of disaster steadily increases as Christmas Day approaches with Clark’s agony compounded the absence of his annual Christmas bonus. Clark’s big Christmas surprise for the family is that he’s putting in a pool, but in order to start work as soon as the ground thawed out, he had to put down a hefty deposit which his check won’t cover without the Christmas bonus. After a Christmas Eve in which the turkey explodes, Aunt Bethany’s cat electrocutes itself, Uncle Lewis burns down the tree, and a squirrel gets loose in the house, a late night knock on the door provides Clark with hope. A deliveryman hands him an envelope which fell between the seats, the fabled Christmas bonus. But when the bonus isn’t quite what Clark expected, Cousin Eddie surprises Clark with an unexpected last minute gift… Originally released in 1989, Christmas Vacation has surprisingly little content that makes it seem “dated”. As such, it’s certain to be a holiday viewing tradition for generations to come. With some of the best one-liners in all of comedy, you’ll find yourself reciting its dialogue for many Christmases to come. But what makes Christmas Vacation such an enduring film is that everyone who watches it can relate to the events within. Almost everyone has a strange relative like Eddie or a pair of snotty elitist neighbors, and of course, who hasn’t had a squirrel ransack their house on Christmas Eve? Overall, this movie is a barrel of laughs. If you don’t like it, you probably aren’t breathing…

         
    National treasure dvd review

     

    One of the surprise blockbusters of 2004, National Treasure evokes images of the Indiana Jones trilogy with its adventurous search for a mysterious hidden treasure. But more than likely, the film is the result of the massive commercial success of a "quest for the holy grail" novel entitled The Da Vinci Code. Since its release, Dan Brown's book has sold over twenty million copies, and its plot of a historian turned treasure hunter who uncovers ancient clues put in place by the Knights Templar and the Masons that hold the key to a treasure of unimaginable consequences from the era of the Crusades while doing so with the aid of a beautiful woman curator of the very archive which holds the crucial clues to its discovery, all while an evil competitor who seeks the treasure for himself follows on his heels - whew! is a plot device that's eerily similar to Dan Brown's bestseller. But National Treasure takes place in the United States instead of Europe, so you can rest assured that the book's success had nothing to do with the movie's production (wink, wink)… Anyway, regardless of its origin, National Treasure is an entertaining adventure more than worthy of a movie-goer's time… National Treasure follows the exploits of Benjamin "Ben" Franklin Gates (Nicolas Cage), the youngest in a long line of historians who believe that America's Founding Fathers were the guardians of a massive treasure dating back to the era of the Crusades. Despite his father Patrick's (Jon Voight) pessimism, Ben investigates a clue provided by his grandfather John Adams Gates (Christopher Plummer) - a clue handed down by their distant relative Charles Carroll, one of the last surviving signatories of the Declaration of Independence. Working with his employer Ian Howe (Sean Bean), Ben unlocks the mystery of the clue which leads to his belief that a treasure map is encoded in invisible on the backside of the Declaration of Independence… When Ian hatches a scheme to rob the National Archives of its most treasured artifact, Ben promptly alerts the FBI. But the feds' failure to take his claim seriously prompts Ben to devise his own plan to steal the parchment (so he can protect its secrets from Ian). Along the way, Ben convinces National Archives curator Abigail Chase (Diane Kruger) of the conspiracy, and she agrees to help him steal the Declaration of Independence. With each new success, Ben and Abigail are brought closer to the ultimate discovery. But Ian Howe and the FBI are always one step behind, and multiple dangerous obstacles remain in their way… Does a vast treasure of wealth hidden by the Founding Fathers really exist? And will Ben and Abigail find it before it falls into the wrong hands? Just as with Harry Potter and Indiana Jones, all the fun is in waiting to find out… National Treasure marks the second mass-audience commercial success of 2004 for Walt Disney Pictures (The Incredibles being the other), and Disney teams up once again with Jerry Bruckheimer Films (with whom it worked on The Pirates Of The Caribbean) to pull off the feat. Director Jon Turteltaub (While You Were Sleeping) manages to provide a modicum of realism to a film that asks it audience time and again to ignore common sense. Sporting a screenplay that offers its hero a series of absurdly difficult clues which he solves with relative ease, National Treasure presents a comic book edifice that borders on the juvenile. But the film is saved by the fact that it doesn't come across in an overtly serious light, but rather as a fun and entertaining night at the movies that even offers a bit of comic relief. As such, National Treasure is a definite must-see film. Because if it's anything, it's loads of fun…

         
    North and south dvd review

     

    Based on the best-selling novels by John Jakes, North And South premiered as a highly celebrated and critically acclaimed television series in 1985. In the spirit of Gone With The Wind, the novels cover 19th Century America before, during, and after the Civil War. As with the Margaret Mitchell classic, Jakes creates a larger-than-life cast of characters to tell his story of struggle between a Union of States divided on the issues of human bondage and state’s rights, loyalty to one’s nation and loyalty to the state in which one was born, along with innumerable interpersonal conflicts lost in the sands of time… To tell his story, Jakes uses two families, the Hazard family of Pennsylvania and the Main family of South Carolina. Boasting a star-studded cast, North And South is over 1000 minutes of riveting drama. Multiple discs cover the Civil War era with breathtaking cinematography, realistic settings, and the ever-increasing cauldron of conflict between North and South. You won’t want to miss this truly amazing series. The North And South DVD covers all three books from the popular series, each a multi-disc set… Below is a less than comprehensive summary of each book. (Be Warned that the summaries below contain some plot spoilers) BOOK ONE – North & South (561 minutes) Book One of the North And South DVD covers the period prior the Civil War (1844-1860). Eighteen-year-old Orry Main (Patrick Swayze) prepares to leave his South Carolina plantation en route to West Point when he encounters an overturned carriage while leaving town. Aiding the passengers, Orry is introduced to the lovely Madeline Fabray (Lesley-Anne Down) to whom he provides a ride, giving her safe passage to the LaMotte plantation where her father and his friend Justin LaMotte (David Carradine) are waiting. Madeline and Orry agree to write each other while he’s away at West Point. When Orry travels to New York, he meets up with a group of unsavory characters who try to rob him, but George Hazard (James Read) comes to his aid, and the two manage to fend off the criminals. George is on his way to West Point as well, and the two men strike up a friendship that continues through the duration of their schooling. While at West Point, they collude with others to rid the campus of menacing upperclassman Elkanah Bent (Philip Casnoff). The vindictive cadet vows revenge, and he gets it when George and Orry are placed under his command at a battle during the Mexican War. Bent sends the two men and their comrades into certain death, only to have his plan foiled by a Mexican retreat. While fighting in Mexico, George meets his future wife Constance Flynn (Wendy Kilbourne). Meanwhile, Orry and Madeline experience a personal hell when Madeline’s father hides Orry’s letters from West Point. Thinking that Orry has forgotten about her, Madeline agrees to marry Justin LaMotte, who treats her horribly. With Orry and Madeline continuing their love affair in secret, George and Orry continue their friendship. The entire Main family, including Orry’s sisters Ashton (Terri Garber) and Brett (Genie Francis) as well as Main cousin Charles (Lewis Smith), travel to Pennsylvania as guests of the Hazard family. While in the North, the Mains are confronted by George’s abolitionist sister Virgilia (Kirstie Alley) and the differences between the North and South dominate the discussion, but George and Orry’s friendship continues unabated as they decide not to discuss such matters. When the Mains return the favor and invite the Hazards to South Carolina, Virgilia creates a ruckus by aiding in the escape of Grady, a neighbor’s slave. Later, she marries Grady, and the two join John Brown and his freedom fighters. When Grady is killed, Virgilia enlists the help of Congressmen Sam Greene. Meanwhile, Orry and George start a business partnership by opening a cotton mill in South Carolina. As the secessionist movement gains ground, the two continue to take comfort in the strength of their brotherly bond… BOOK TWO – Love & War (570 minutes) Book Two of the North And South DVD covers the beginnings of the Civil War and the war’s conclusion (1860-1865). Despite the growing talk of Southern secession, George and Orry continue to run their cotton mill and remain friends. George and Constance even operate an illegal stop along the Underground Railroad. But when Abraham Lincoln is elected president, the Southern states secede, and eventually war breaks out between the two nations. Orry’s sister Brett is in love with George’s brother Billy Hazard (John Stockwell) who is himself a West Point graduate stationed in Fort Sumter. The war drives Billy far away from his new bride Brett, while Ashton sees the war as an opportunity to profit. Using her husband James Huntoon (Jim Metzler) to climb the ranks of the political circuit, Ashton decides that James is not the best man to serve her interests. She begins a relationship with Elkanah Bent, who is using the war for personal profit by smuggling luxury goods past the Union naval blockade. Meanwhile, the war tears apart both North and South. George works as an aide to Lincoln, while Orry works in a similar capacity for Jefferson Davis. During the course of the war, Charles meets a Virginia woman and falls in love with her. At war’s end, she bears his child, but dies shortly thereafter. In addition, Justin’s death finally gives Orry and Madeline the opportunity to marry. As the war wages on, it takes its toll on the two families. But despite the obstacles, they endure to the end. At the war’s conclusion, George and Orry are reunited, and the two men vow to work together to rebuild a broken nation. BOOK THREE – Heaven & Hell (261 minutes) Book Three of the North And South DVD originally aired in 1994, several years after the first two books aired. With Patrick Swayze now an established star, the character of Orry Main is written out of the television screenplay for the final book. Several other cast members reappear, but the writing deviates substantially from John Jakes’s original novel, creating a plot which fails to make sense. Seeing as how Elkanah Bent died in the previous book, it’s somewhat ludicrous to have him reappear in book three. In addition, the dialogue is often stiff and awkward, the plot uninteresting, and the entire book is not worth viewing. Stick with watching the first two books on DVD. CONCLUSION Despite the failure of Book Three to arouse any interest whatsoever, the North And South DVD is more than worth the price for Books One and Two. This is a thoroughly entertaining mini-series reminiscent of a prime time soap opera, one with a historical perspective. With a cast of characters likely to spark viewer fondness, compelling subplots, and fascinating costumes and set design, North And South is an epic of unrivaled quality. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed with the North And South DVD, despite the deficiencies of Book Three…

         
    Northern exposure dvd review

     

    Nominated for 39 Emmys, including 4 nominations for Outstanding Drama Series in just six short seasons, Northern Exposure is one of the most unique television shows of its time. Half-drama, half-comedy, the show built itself a large cult following, experiencing widespread critical acclaim as well as viewer popularity. The brainchild of St. Elsewhere creators Joshua Brand and John Falsey, Northern Exposure premiered in July 1990 on CBS, lasting only five years (cancelled in July 1995). But the show's cutting edge wit and originality have earned it a place among the most hallowed and venerable of TV classics… Northern Exposure follows the exploits of recent medical school graduate Joel Fleishman (Rob Morrow) who, failing to read the fine print in the government papers accompanying his student loans, is forced to practice medicine for several years in the frozen tundra of Alaska. Even more unsettling is that he'll be the only doctor in the small logging township of Cicely, a place filled with oddball characters and never short of strange occurrences. The wealthy entrepreneur, ex-NASA astronaut Maurice Minnifield owns Cicely and is determined to turn it into an ideal vacation paradise (with Fleishman being part of his plan). Other notable characters throughout Cicely include beautiful bush pilot (and Fleishman love interest) Maggie O'Connell (Janine Turner), KBHR radio deejay Chris Stevens (John Corbett), aspiring filmmaker Ed Chigliak (Darren E. Burrows), and husband/wife team Holling (John Cullum) and Shelly Vincoeur (Cynthia Geary) who run the local watering hole, The Brick. With its classic "fish out of water" theme, Northern Exposure provides some memorable moments as hero Joel Fleishman learns to appreciate the finer points of rural Alaska… The Northern Exposure DVD features a number of hilarious episodes including the series premiere in which the recently graduated Joel Fleishman arrives in Anchorage, Alaska, intent on fulfilling his contractual obligations with the government. But when Anchorage doesn't him, Joel is transferred to the remote town of Cicely where the residents are determined to prolong his stay… Other notable episodes from Season 1 include "Soapy Sanderson" in which a hermit takes Joel's advice to get his estate in order and leaves all of his land holdings to Joel and Maggie, and "A Kodiak Moment" in which Maurice adopts the ex-con radio deejay Chris to be his "Minnifield heir"… Below is a list of episodes included on the Northern Exposure (Season 1) DVD: Episode 1 (Pilot) Air Date: 07-12-1990 Episode 2 (Brains, Know How and Native Intelligence) Air Date: 07-19-1990 Episode 3 (Soapy Sanderson) Air Date: 07-26-1990 Episode 4 (Dreams, Schemes, and Putting Greens) Air Date: 08-02-1990 Episode 5 (Russian Flu) Air Date: 08-09-1990 Episode 6 (Sex, Lies, and Ed's Tapes) Air Date: 08-16-1990 Episode 7 (A Kodiak Moment) Air Date: 08-23-1990 Episode 8 (Aurora Borealis - A Fairy Tale for Big People) Air Date: 08-30-1990

         
    Northern exposure season 2 dvd review

     

    The recipient of 39 Emmy nominations, including four for Outstanding Drama Series in just a short six season stint, Northern Exposure is one of the more interesting television shows of its decade. The offspring of St. Elsewhere creators Joshua Brand and John Falsey, Northern Exposure originally aired in July of 1990, but only lasted five years because critics loved the show more than audiences... Northern Exposure centers around the life of a recent medical school graduate named Joel Fleishman (Rob Morrow) who, not reading the fine print in his student loans, realizes he must practice medicine in the frozen tundra of Alaska. Even worse, he'll be the only doctor in the tiny town of Cicely, a place populated by oddball characters of every sort such as ex-NASA astronaut Maurice Minnifield, bush pilot Maggie O'Connell (Janine Turner), KBHR radio deejay Chris Stevens (John Corbett), aspiring filmmaker Ed Chigliak (Darren E. Burrows), and bartending couple Holling (John Cullum) and Shelly Vincoeur (Cynthia Geary). It's a fine recipe for some hilarious situations. The Northern Exposure (Season 2) DVD features a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere "Goodbye to All That" in which Joel learns that Elaine has left to marry a judge several years her elder.

    Nypd blue dvd review

     

    Nominated for 84 Emmys and 13 Golden Globes, including 5 for Best TV Series - Drama in its first five years, NYPD Blue is one of the best prime time dramas in television history. It's also one of the most talked about and controversial as well. Prior to its series premiere in Fall 1993, NYPD Blue found itself embroiled in a nationwide controversy surrounding proper TV programming and calls for government censorship. Its opening tagline "This police drama contains adult language and scenes with partial nudity. Viewer discretion is advised," caused a quite a stir before the public had even seen the first episode. Family rights groups maligned the ABC network for airing the show, but when NYPD Blue turned out to be a mild show by conventional standards, the massive publicity only served to instantly propel the police drama to the top of the Nielsen ratings, where it lived out 12 successful seasons… NYPD Blue follows the exploits of a New York City Police Department unit as they deal with the high-stress trials and travails indicative of the world's most demanding police work. During the show's 12 seasons, a number of characters transferred in and out of the department, but Det. Andy Sipowicz (Dennis Franz) was the one constant. The brash, steel-gut demeanor of Sipowicz set the tone for the show, and most episodes revolve around Sipowicz and his various partners (whose mild-mannered temperaments help soften his oftentimes brash methods). Det. John Kelley (David Caruso) was the first of these partners, followed by Bobby Simone (Jimmy Smits)… The brainchild of Steven Bochco (former writer for Columbo and creator of such hit series as Hill Street Blues, L. A. Law, and Doogie Howser, M. D.), NYPD Blue raised the bar for prime-time police dramas, and along with contemporary peer Law & Order, the show defined the genre during the decade of the 1990s… The NYPD Blue DVD features a number of dramatic episodes including the series premiere in which Det. Sipowicz is brought up before Internal Affairs due to harassing conduct toward Alfonse Giardella. Meanwhile, his wife is pushing to finalize their divorce, but Sipowicz gets shot by Giardella in the process. Now, Det. Kelley must apply pressure to the local mafia to help him catch the perpetrator… Other notable episodes from Season 1 include "Oscar, Meyer, Weiner" in which Sipowicz and Kelley investigate the murder of an entire family of wealthy elites as well as a stolen Academy Award, and "Serge the Concierge" in which the two detectives find a dead body in a dumpster and trace it back to a conspiracy hatched by a hotel owner and her concierge employee… Below is a list of episodes included on the NYPD Blue (Season 1) DVD: Episode 1 (Pilot) Air Date: 09-21-1993 Episode 2 (4B or Not 4B) Air Date: 09-28-1993 Episode 3 (Brown Appetit) Air Date: 10-05-1993 Episode 4 (True Confessions) Air Date: 10-12-1993 Episode 5 (Emission Accomplished) Air Date: 10-19-1993 Episode 6 (Personal Foul) Air Date: 10-26-1993 Episode 7 (NYPD Lou) Air Date: 11-02-1993 Episode 8 (Tempest in a C-Cup) Air Date: 11-16-1993 Episode 9 (Ice Follies) Air Date: 11-30-1993 Episode 10 (Oscar, Meyer, Weiner) Air Date: 12-07-1993 Episode 11 (From Hare to Eternity) Air Date: 12-14-1993 Episode 12 (Up on the Roof) Air Date: 01-04-1994 Episode 13 (Abandando Abandoned) Air Date: 01-11-1994 Episode 14 (Jumpin' Jack Fleishman) Air Date: 01-18-1994 Episode 15 (Steroid Roy) Air Date: 02-08-1994 Episode 16 (A Sudden Fish) Air Date: 02-15-1994 Episode 17 (Black Men Can Jump) Air Date: 03-01-1994 Episode 18 (Zeppo Marks Brothers) Air Date: 03-22-1994 Episode 19 (Serge the Concierge) Air Date: 03-29-1994 Episode 20 (Good Time Charlie) Air Date: 05-03-1994 Episode 21 (Guns 'N Rosaries) Air Date: 05-10-1994 Episode 22 (Rockin' Robin) Air Date: 05-17-1994

         
    Nypd blue season 2 dvd review

     

    Recipient of 13 Golden Globe and 84 Emmy nominations, including five for Best TV Series (Drama), NYPD Blue is widely regarded as one of the best prime time dramatic series in TV history. The show is also one of the most controversial as well. Before its initial release in Fall 1993, NYPD Blue became the subject of a nationwide controversy stemming from its use of foul language and improper visual scenes. The series prompted a national debate on what constitutes proper TV programming and whether or not government censorship should be involved. All this happened before the first episode ever aired! "Family values" interest groups attacked ABC for releasing the show, but when NYPD Blue proved itself to be mild by today's standards, the publicity only helped to propel the police drama series to the apex of the Nielsen ratings, where it remained for twelve seasons… The NYPD Blue (Season 2) DVD features a number of dramatic episodes including the season premiere "Trials & Tribulations" in which Kelley's testimony on Licalsi's behalf triggers an Internal Affairs investigation and Sipowicz tries to enlist the help of an abused woman (fearful of her husband) whose testimony is badly needed. Meanwhile, Sipowicz's AA sponsor wants him to agree to the boilerplate recovery contract before reconstituting his relationship with Sylvia… Other notable episodes from Season 2 include "The Final Adjustment" in which Simone and Sipowicz investigate a successful chiropractor suspected of murdering his wife, and "Bombs Away" in which the two detectives apprehend a Rumanian immigrant with a woman locked in his trunk and the man turns out to be a fugitive terrorist… Below is a list of episodes included on the NYPD Blue (Season 2) DVD: Episode 23 (Trials & Tribulations) Air Date: 10-11-1994 Episode 24 (From Whom the Skell Rolls) Air Date: 10-18-1994 Episode 25 (Cop Suey) Air Date: 10-25-1994 Episode 26 (Dead and Gone) Air Date: 11-01-1994 Episode 27 (Simone Says) Air Date: 11-15-1994 Episode 28 (The Final Adjustment) Air Date: 11-22-1994 Episode 29 (Double Abandando) Air Date: 11-29-1994 Episode 30 (You Bet Your Life) Air Date: 12-06-1994 Episode 31 (Don We Now Our Gay Apparel) Air Date: 01-03-1995 Episode 32 (In the Butt, Bob) Air Date: 01-10-1995 Episode 33 (Vishy-Vashy-Vinny) Air Date: 01-17-1995 Episode 34 (Large Mouth Bass) Air Date: 02-07-1995 Episode 35 (Travels with Andy) Air Date: 02-14-1995 Episode 36 (A Murder with Teeth in It) Air Date: 02-21-1995 Episode 37 (Bombs Away) Air Date: 02-28-1995 Episode 38 (UnAmerican Graffiti) Air Date: 03-14-1995 Episode 39 (Dirty Socks) Air Date: 03-21-1995 Episode 40 (Innuendo) Air Date: 04-04-1995 Episode 41 (Boxer Rebellion) Air Date: 05-02-1995 Episode 42 (The Bookie and Kooky Cookie) Air Date: 05-09-1995 Episode 43 (The Bank Dick) Air Date: 05-16-1995 Episode 44 (A.

    Oz dvd review

     

    Nominated for 2 Emmys, including Best Casting for a Series, Oz is widely regarded as one of the best prison dramas ever created. The brainchild of creator Tom Fontana (former writer for such hit TV shows as Homicide: Life On The Streets and St. Elsewhere), Oz was one of a number of a highly successful HBO original series to premiere in the 1990s, keeping good company among such shows as Sex And The City and The Sopranos. Premiering in mid-summer 1997, Oz quickly built a large and loyal following of voyeuristic viewers hypnotized by the series' vivid depiction of no-holds-barred prison life. Following six critically acclaimed seasons, Oz was cancelled in early 2003, but lives on via DVD… Oz is the street name for the Oswald State Penitentary, a rough and hardened prison where survival of the fittest is the prevailing law. But the focus of Oz is Level 5, an experimental cell block deemed "Emerald City" that's managed by Unit Administrator Tim McManus (Terry Kinney) and thick-skinned Warden Leo Glynn (Ernie Hudson). One of the prisoners, wheelchair-bound convicted murderer Augustus Hill (Harold Perrineau Jr. of Lost) narrates for the viewer, tying together the various storylines that play out within the prison. In an atmosphere of well-governed anarchy, prisoners come and go (some paroled; some murdered), prison guards uphold their duty (while some are corrupt), and various groups (such as Muslims, Aryans, Latinos, Italians, gangstas, gays, etc.) compete for power over each other and over the prevalent drug trade rampant within the walls of Oz. Tobias "Toby" Beecher (Lee Tergesen) plays the "everyday man," having been convicted for manslaughter while driving drunk, and his character's experiences force the viewer to place himself in the shoes of the inmate. Other notable characters include Prisoner Miguel Alvarez (Kirk Acevedo), Prisoner Bob Rebadow (George Morfogen), Prisoner Vernon Schillinger (J. K. Simmons), Prisoner Kareem Said (Eamonn Walker), Prisoner Tony Masters (Steven Wishnoff), Officer Diane Whittlesey (Edie Falco of The Sopranos), and Father Ray Mukada (B. D. Wong of Law & Order: SVU). Together, they form a solid cast that makes Oz one of the best original cable dramas ever produced… The Oz DVD features a number of dramatic episodes including the series premiere "The Routine" in which viewers are introduced to the newest crop of inmates to enter Oz (…ala Shawshank Redemption). Among them are Miguel Alvarez (who is promptly stabbed in the chest), Kareem Said (a respected Muslim leader who lets it be known that he now rules the prison), and Tobias Beecher (an out-of-place lawyer incarcerated for killing a little girl while driving drunk). As the newest inmates become acclimated to life in Oz, they also learn that "the routine" and not the omnipresent violence is what will ultimately kill their souls… Other notable episodes from Season 1 include "God's Chillin'" in which, among other things, some corrupt guards arrange and videotape a makeshift gladiator fight between inmates, and "A Game of Checkers" in which a prison riot breaks out when some inmates begin fighting over a game of checkers… Below is a list of episodes included on the Oz (Season 1) DVD: Episode 1 (The Routine) Air Date: 07-12-1997 Episode 2 (Visits, Conjugal, and Otherwise) Air Date: 07-14-1997 Episode 3 (God's Chillin') Air Date: 07-21-1997 Episode 4 (Capital P) Air Date: 07-28-1997 Episode 5 (Straight Life) Air Date: 08-04-1997 Episode 6 (To Your Health) Air Date: 08-11-1997 Episode 7 (Plan B) Air Date: 08-18-1997 Episode 8 (A Game of Checkers) Air Date: 08-25-1997

         
    Oz season 2 dvd review

     

    Recipient of two Emmy nominations and varying critical acclaim, Oz is considered by many to be one of the greatest prison dramas ever devised. Created by former St. Elsewhere writer Tom Fontana, the show was one of a number of highly touted and commercially successful HBO original series created in the 1990s. Initially aired in the summer of 1997, Oz built a strong following of viewers addicted to its vivid depiction of American prison life and hypnotic voyeuristic window into the bad side of American life. Along with The Sopranos and Sex And The City, it rose to prominence as one of the top series on HBO... The Oz (Season 2) DVD features a number of dramatic episodes including the season premiere "The Tip" in which Oz takes a rest following a deadly riot that left two officers and six prisoners dead. Governor James Devlin (Zeljko Ivanek) demands an answer to the riot's cause, and he enlists Alvah Case (Charles S. Dutton) to investigate, promising him his support for state Attorney General. After a thorough investigation, he decides to look the other way in regard to Whittlesey and Ross's cigarette operation and Ross's subsequent murder, and he deems the riot a "no-fault" occurrence, incurring the wrath of Governor Devlin… Other notable episodes from Season 2 include "Great Men" in which Kareem Said sees the opportunity to have his conviction overturned when the judge from his trial is admonished for accepting bribes, and "Escape from Oz" in which two prisoners are killed when an escape tunnel collapses, while Said turns down a pardon from the Governor, making him all the more popular in Oz… Below is a list of episodes included on the Oz (Season 2) DVD: Episode 9 (The Tip) Air Date: 07-11-1998 Episode 10 (Ancient Tribes) Air Date: 07-20-1998 Episode 11 (Great Men) Air Date: 07-27-1998 Episode 12 (Losing Your Appeal) Air Date: 08-03-1998 Episode 13 (Family Bizness) Air Date: 08-10-1998 Episode 14 (Strange Bedfellows) Air Date: 08-17-1998 Episode 15 (Animal Farm) Air Date: 08-24-1998 Episode 16 (Escape from Oz) Air Date: 08-31-1998

         
    Quantum leap dvd review

     

    Despite its short run (March 1989 - May 1993), Quantum Leap is nevertheless one of the more memorable dramatic series in television history. Although the show borrows from a concept employed in other realms, such as Highway To Heaven (with its theme of a mysterious force interceding to transform a single life), it adds a unique twist by utilizing elements of science fiction. Created by Donald P. Bellisario (creator of Magnum, P. I., JAG, and countless other hit shows), Quantum Leap developed a loyal cult following, making its short network run all the more difficult to understand… Quantum Leap stars Scott Bakula as Dr. Samuel "Sam" Beckett, a cutting-edge experimental researcher in the field of physics. Developing a theory that an individual can travel throughout the span of his life, Beckett builds the Quantum Leap Accelerator and uses himself as the test subject. But rather than traveling within his own lifetime, Beckett finds himself mysteriously transported into the lives of various individuals, each of whom faces a problem Beckett must rectify (thus changing history for the better). When he does, he can make his next "quantum leap" (which he hopes will restore him to his pre-experiment self). Aiding Beckett on his various missions is Rear Admiral Albert "Al" Calavicci (Dean Stockwell), one of the quantum leap experiment observers who periodically appears as a hologram in order to communicate with Beckett. With each new episode, Beckett finds himself in a new body, facing new circumstances, with a new mission he must decipher and complete if he ever hopes to return home… The Quantum Leap DVD features a number of action-packed episodes including the series premiere "Genesis" in which the audience first learns of Project Quantum Leap (PQL) and witnesses Dr. Beckett's leap into the particle accelerator. Beckett is transported into the body of an Air Force test pilot and a minor league baseball player, learning from Al's hologram what he must do with each man's life. The episode ends with Beckett transported into the body of a school teacher right in the middle of class… Other notable episodes from Season 1 include "Star-Crossed" in which Sam prevents a college co-ed from ruining her life while giving her professor a second chance at making his marriage work, and "The Color of Truth" in which Sam is transported into the life of a black chauffeur in 1955, where he faces the virulent affects of discrimination and racism… Below is a list of episodes included on the Quantum Leap (Season 1) DVD: Episode 1 (Genesis: Part 1 - September 13, 1956) Air Date: 03-26-1989 Episode 2 (Genesis: Part 2 - September 13, 1956) Air Date: 03-26-1989 Episode 3 (Star-Crossed - June 15, 1972) Air Date: 03-31-1989 Episode 4 (The Right Hand of God - October 24, 1974) Air Date: 04-07-1989 Episode 5 (How the Tess was Won - August 5, 1956) Air Date: 04-14-1989 Episode 6 (Double Identity - November 8, 1965) Air Date: 04-21-1989 Episode 7 (The Color of Truth - August 8, 1955) Air Date: 05-03-1989 Episode 8 (Kamikazi Kid - June 6, 1961) Air Date: 05-10-1989 Episode 9 (Play It Again Seymour - April 14, 1953) Air Date: 05-17-1989

         
    Queer as folk dvd review

     

    Nominated for 9 Craft Awards (bestowed by the Director's Guild of Canada), Queer As Folk is a groundbreaking drama series that has built itself a large cult following since its inception in 2000. Based on a British TV series of the same name, Queer As Folk is in many ways similar to HBO's Sex And The City, and it's one of the first TV dramas to be completely centered around the lives of homosexual characters, or even have prominent homosexual characters - following on the heels of groundbreaking sitcoms such as Ellen (1994) and Will & Grace (1998). The brainchild of UK-born writer and creator Russell T. Davies, Queer As Folk follows the life and times of a group of gay friends as they live out their respective lives in modern-day America… Set in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Queer As Folk follows the exploits of a group of gay and lesbian friends who live on or around Liberty Avenue. Most of the scenes take place either in the character's homes, a local diner, or the popular gay nightclub Babylon. Lindsay Peterson (Thea Gill) and Melanie Marcus (Michelle Clunie) comprise the lone lesbian couple to star in the series, while various gay friends and neighbors such as Brian Kinney (Gale Harold), Michael Novotny-Bruckner (Hal Sparks), Justin Taylor (Randy Harrison), Ted Schmidt (Scott Lowell), Emmett Honeycutt (Peter Paige), etc. deal with each other and their own varying relationshipsposed in a drama/soap opera format, Queer As Folk centers wholly on the careers and lives (including sex, drugs, love, friendships, tragedies, etc.) of its diverse characters, maintaining a specific focus on its attempted realistic portrayal and illustration of the American homosexual lifestyle... The Queer As Folk DVD features a number of interesting episodes including the series premiere in which, following a night of entertainment at Babylon with his friends, Brian goes home with a man named Justin, but has a difficult time conveying to Justin that he doesn't want to pursue a relationship. Meanwhile, friends Lindsay and Melanie are celebrating the birth of their new baby boy, Gus… Other notable episodes from Season 1 include "Episode 110" in which Brian evicts Justin after he forgets to set the alarm and the place gets robbed, and "Episode 118" in which Justin learns that his parents are getting a divorce while Ted is reunited with Blake… Below is a list of episodes included on the Queer As Folk (Season 1) DVD: Episode 1 (Episode 101) Air Date: 01-17-2003 Episode 2 (Episode 102) Air Date: 01-17-2003 Episode 3 (Episode 103) Air Date: 12-10-2000 Episode 4 (Episode 104) Air Date: 12-17-2000 Episode 5 (Episode 105) Air Date: 01-07-2001 Episode 6 (Episode 106) Air Date: 01-21-2001 Episode 7 (Episode 107) Air Date: 01-28-2001 Episode 8 (Episode 108) Air Date: 02-04-2001 Episode 9 (Episode 109) Air Date: 02-11-2001 Episode 10 (Episode 110) Air Date: 02-18-2001 Episode 11 (Episode 111) Air Date: 02-25-2001 Episode 12 (Episode 112) Air Date: 03-04-2001 Episode 13 (Episode 113) Air Date: 03-11-2001 Episode 14 (Episode 114) Air Date: 03-18-2001 Episode 15 (Episode 115) Air Date: 04-01-2001 Episode 16 (Episode 116) Air Date: 04-08-2001 Episode 17 (Episode 117) Air Date: 04-15-2001 Episode 18 (Episode 118) Air Date: 04-22-2001 Episode 19 (Episode 119) Air Date: 04-29-2001 Episode 20 (Episode 120) Air Date: 06-10-2001 Episode 21 (Episode 121) Air Date: 06-17-2001 Episode 22 (Episode 122) Air Date: 06-24-2001

         
    Ray dvd review

     

    Nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture, Ray is a captivating and inspiring true story about a man beloved by millions around the world. Based on the life and times of Ray Charles Robinson, the film follows the popular singer's life from the earliest days of his youth to the day of his triumph over a heroin addiction. Featuring a soundtrack second to none in the history of cinema, Ray is the total package in terms of a blockbuster film - great characters blended together with an inspirational personal journey and an unforgettable musical score. Actor Jamie Foxx gives an Oscar Award winning performance so lifelike that it's difficult to distinguish his character from the real Ray Charles. In short, Ray is a film that appeals to a wide audience and one that literally transports its viewers into another era… Jamie Foxx plays the role of Ray Charles Robinson, a black youth growing up in Florida during the Great Depression. Forced to deal with the tragedy of his kid brother's death, and the loss of his own vision at a young age, Ray nevertheless triumphs over his disability when his mother refuses to let him feel sorry for himself. Learning to play the piano from a neighborhood musician, Ray strikes out on his own in the late-1940s for gig in Seattle. Ray's amazing talents are instantly recognized, and he's never short of a gig. However, while traveling on the road with several jazz bands, Ray begins using drugs, and he eventually becomes addicted to heroin. When Atlantic Records buys Ray's contract, Ray's career accelerates, culminating in several number one hits. Eventually, Ray strikes a deal with NBC worth more than any other performer of his day, and he and his wife Bea buy a luxurious Beverly Hills home with the world spread out before them. But things aren't as perfect as they seem. Ray's infidelities have taken a toll on his marriage, and his drug addiction threatens to ruin his family, his relationship with his children, and his dealings with longtime friends. Having already accomplished more than most men, Ray Charles must now face the greatest challenge of his life - overcoming his heroin addiction and living a clean life… Jamie Foxx is simply astounding in his portrayal of the larger than life figure Ray Charles, and his effort was more than acknowledged by his Academy Award victory and widespread critical acclaim. But less attention is given to the outstanding supporting cast that surrounds Foxx. The role of the young Ray Robinson's mother, Aretha, is played by Sharon Warren with such passion that her character leaps off the screen and into one's memory as the second most influential character of the film. Aretha's dedication to her son's future and her demanding, yet loving, attitude toward his self-sufficiency are admirable qualities. And the mother's influence on Ray is apparent in his drive not to be treated by the world as a cripple. Further adding to the allure of Ray are performances by Kerry Washington (Della Bea Robinson), Regina King (Margie Hendricks), and Clifton Powell (Jeff Brown). Through the interaction of each character, the viewer sees a reflection of the passion and driving life forces that moved Ray Charles toward his musical destiny. Ultimately, Ray is a film about relationships and dreams. The astounding heights of success achieved by a blind man (and a black man in a segregated society) leave the impression that any individual can achieve any feat to which he puts his mind. This is the true gift of Ray, a feel-good film with a happy ending about a man who showed the world that anything is possible. And that's why Ray is an absolute must-see movie…
