title: SCTV Network 90: Volume 1 function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Shout Factory MPAA rating: NR starring: John Candy, Andrea Martin, Rick Moranis, Eugene Levy, Dave Thomas, Catherine O’Hara, Joe Flaherty, Martin Short, Harold Ramis TV broadcast year: 1981 DVD release year: 2004 film rating: Five Stars sound/picture: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh Perhaps actor/comedian Ben Stiller sums it up best in the liner notes for this five-DVD set: “For my sister and me, it was the funniest thing we had ever seen, on at 12:30 on Friday nights – and no one knew about it.” For early fans of the show, it really seemed like this quirky SCTV series was our little secret. And even though the equally new “Saturday Night Live” was getting almost all of the media attention around this time – at least with regard to emerging sketch comedy programs -- performers and writers, such as Stiller, immediately gravitated toward this offbeat little-show-that-could, and it still holds a special place in their hearts.

The 2001-2002 year gets a whole lot darker than anybody would ever expect of a supernatural show with such a high rate of laugh lines – in fact, it becomes a whole lot darker than most regular dramas. Thanks to the vision and nerve of series creator Joss Whedon, it also delivers one of the best and most daring episodes ever, of anything, in “Once More, With Feeling,” an honest-to-God musical with an original score, singing, dancing and (most amazingly) a plot reason that makes sense within the storyline as to why everybody is ...

title: The Osbournes 2 1/2 function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Miramax Home Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: Ozzy Osbourne, Sharon Osbourne, Jack Osbourne, Kelly Osbourne release year: 2004 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Two Stars reviewed by: Paul Lingas Well this is something I never thought I’d see, a second half of a season on DVD. They really know how to package these things nowadays, don’t they? Having left off the first half of “The Osbournes” Season Two with Ozzy and Sharon renewing their wedding vows, we now get to see the family doing a bit more relaxing than previously. No one’s on tour or doing photo shoots or anything of the sort. In fact, what marks these episodes are birthdays, as both Jack and Ozzy have birthdays within two episodes of each other. It’s time for a little bit of rest and relaxation (more than usual) with the Osbournes.

TV is famous for taking the edge out of really funny comedians. When the ratings for “Seinfeld” exploded, network executives began scrambling to turn stand-up comedians into sitcom stars. The formula should work in theory, since stand-up comedians’ only job is to get up in front of an audience and be funny. The reality is that comedians who have been plucked from the R-rated world of comedy clubs and inserted into PG-rated primetime slots have met with varying levels of success. The hilarious Damon Wayans was domesticated on ABC’s sitcom “My Wife and Kids,” a show that is almost unwatchable. Margaret Cho was given a chance at network stardom with the ill-fated “American Girl.” Bob Saget, who is best known as the softhearted dad on “Full House,” is actually a silver-tongued stand-up comedian who was brought into the sitcom world ...

title: Highlander The Series: Season 4 function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: Adrian Paul, Stan Kirsch, Jim Byrnes release year: 1995 film rating: Four-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein With Season Four, Highlander: The Series entered its halcyon years. Moving up from previous seasons’ occasional excellent episode with some merely good material and a little actual clunker fare mixed in, Season Four contains entire discs of the series at its best. In this season, Highlander becomes bolder about interweaving its plot threads. Although the episodes can (almost all) be watched as stand-alones, story elements flow throughout the entire season, giving the boxed set the flavor of a miniseries. As with Season Three, the set is adorned with an abundance of episode-specific extras, making it a must-have for any fan of the show and a really-should-have for anybody who cares about how television is made.
