One Piece: Season Seven, Voyage Two

One Piece: Season Seven, Voyage Two

| October 12, 2015

There are sections within the massive One Piece storyline that act as major growth points for its central characters, as well as pivotal in world building. The Alabasta arc in season 2 is where the Straw Hats make their mark and raise their respectable bounties. Another being the Enies Lobby arc, where the crew makes […]

King of the Hill: Season 12

King of the Hill: Season 12

| September 23, 2015

I never really got into King of the Hill when it was on the air.  I like Mike Judge, and Greg Daniels has created one of the best sitcoms ever with Parks and Recreation, but their joint efforts on a folksy Texas animated series always felt disconnected at best and mean spirited at worst.  Most […]

The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes

| September 14, 2015

The latest Time Life releases of Carol Burnett Show episodes  are dedicated to the so-called “Lost Episodes,” which is to say those episodes from the series’ first five seasons that haven’t been seen since their broadcast from 1967-1972. The first of these sets, The Ultimate Collection, includes 45 episodes chosen by Burnett herself spread across […]

The Returned: Season 1

| September 13, 2015

I wasn’t looking forward to watching The Returned once I realized it was a TV series and not a movie.  Turns out I was confusing this series with another that aired last year called Resurrection on ABC.  It also turns out that I’m not alone, and the failure of Resurrection made it impossible for The […]

Hell on Wheels: Season 4

Hell on Wheels: Season 4

| August 18, 2015

This has to be one of the best series that no one is talking about.  Following the exploits of the 1860’s railroad corporation in America, Hell on Wheels is a fantastic period drama with some great performances and interesting storylines.  I keep meaning to just go back to the beginning of the series and watch […]

Power Rangers Super Megaforce: The Legendary Battle

Power Rangers Super Megaforce: The Legendary Battle

| August 11, 2015

Packaged as an “Extended Edition Movie,” Lionsgate Entertainment’s DVD release of Power Rangers: The Legendary Battle is really just the final two episodes of Super Megaforce edited together into a singular piece of entertainment. The “extended” component of the title merely refers to the eight minutes of additional footage that was integrated into the final […]

Storms of the Century

Storms of the Century

| July 2, 2015

Last month, Mill Creek Entertainment released Storms of the Century on DVD, a collection of five natural disaster TV movies and miniseries that aired between 1996 and 2007. Typically I, and I’m sure many of you, avoid such releases as this which repackage a glut of obscure movies at super low prices, as they rarely […]

The Wonder Years Season Three

The Wonder Years Season Three

| May 26, 2015

Television can be a perplexing medium. Shows can range from high end quality (The Sopranos, Seinfeld, Boardwalk Empire) to bottom of the barrel drek (Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Jersey Shore). Some shows cater to specific age groups. Occasionally a show appears on the television landscape that brings viewers of multiple generations together. One such […]

Peter Benchley’s Creature

| May 18, 2015

Did you ever get the feeling, when you hear about an upcoming home video release, that perhaps the distributor is putting that title out just for you, as if their decision-making process had been cosmically driven by your deeply personal, esoteric interests? That’s how I felt when I learned of Olive Films’ upcoming Blu-ray release […]
