title: Friends: The Complete Second Season 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: Warner Bros. MPAA rating: NR starring: David Schwimmer, Cortney Cox-Arquette, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc release year: 1995 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Tara O'Shea The second season of "Friends" features the blossoming of the Rachel (Jennifer Aniston)/Ross (David Schwimmer) romance, Phoebe's (Lisa Kudrow) not-so-gay ice dancing husband and discovery that her father is alive, Joey's (Matt LeBlanc) brief stint as Dr. Drake Ramoray on "Days of Our Lives," Chandler's (Matthew Perry) bout with a freaky roommate, and Monica's (Courtney Cox Arquette) joblessness and passionate affair with sexy Tom Selleck. An hour-long post-Superbowl guest star extravaganza with Julia Roberts, Brooke Shields, Chris Isaak and Jean-Claude Van Damme is a high point, as are guest appearances such as Michael McKean as a slimy mogul, "That Girl’s" Marlo Thomas as Rachel's mother, the first appearance of James Michael Tyler as Central Perk manager (and former soap star) Gunther, and Giovanni Ribisi ...

I'm almost embarrassed to admit this, but even after being a casual viewer for eight years I never really considered myself a “Friends” fan. However, I have to admit, I was completely won over by the time I finished this review, and can't wait for the next box set. Although, I have to admit, I could have lived without the monkey. What's amazing about going back and revisiting the first season of “Friends” isn't so much what's different as how much of the series is the same. Even in the pilot, the spark is there. Chandler seemed to spring full-grown, like Athena, from the wit of the writers and comic timing of Matthew Perry. Lisa Kudrow's Phoebe is just as daffy and only slightly less coherent. Joey is everybody's best guy pal despite acting lows in such winners as “Freud!,” a ...

title: Buffy The Vampire Slayer: The Complete Second Season 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: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment MPAA rating: Unrated starring: Sarah Michelle Gellar, Alyson Hannigan, Nicholas Brendon, Charisma Carpenter, David Boreanaz, Anthony Stewart Head, James Marsters, Juliet Landau release year: 1998 film rating: Four-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Two-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is one of those series that divide the viewing audience into several segments – those who think it’s one of the best episodic TV shows on the air now (maybe ever), those who enjoy it occasionally, those who’ve never tried it and those who just don’t get it. “Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Complete Second Season” is recommended for everyone who doesn’t fall into that last category. While it would be wrong to say that “Buffy” hit its stride in its second season – the show pretty much hit the ground running in its two-hour Season One premiere and seldom has stumbled thereafter – Season Two is widely viewed as ...

title: The Sopranos: The Complete Second Season 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: HBO Home Video MPAA rating: NR starring: James Gandolfini, Lorraine Bracco, Edie Falco, Michael Imperioli, Dominic Chianese, Nancy Marchand, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Robert Iler, Vincent Pastore, Steve Van Zandt, Tony Sirico, Aida Turturro, David Proval, Peter Bogdanovich release year: 2000 film rating: Five Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren I doubt many people expected this combination of a soap opera and a Martin Scorsese gangster movie would turn out to be the dramatic (and sometimes comic) powerhouse that it is. The HBO series is very popular, and also very good; in fact, it's one of the best television series, ever. It's so compellingly watchable that for people without HBO but with a DVD player, the arrival of a complete new season on DVD can throw viewing schedules for a loop. You sit down to watch one, maybe two episodes, and end up working your way through an entire disc. (The first disc here has four episodes, the ...

The wacky, slightly grotesque but basically loveable clan were created by cartoonist Matt Groening after "Tracey Ullman Show" executive producer James L. Brooks asked Groening to produce animated "bumpers," or brief 10-15 second animated clips, for use between acts of the sketch comedy series. At first toying with an animated version of his "Life In Hell" strip, at the last minute, Groening presented Brooks with a cast of characters he named after members of his own family. The doughnut-loving patriarch, Homer, his blue bee-hived wife Marge, sax-playing smart kid Lisa, pacifier-sucking Maggie, and smart-aleck fourth grader ...
