BEARCATS: THE COMPLETE SERIES

BEARCATS: THE COMPLETE SERIES was a short-lived series from 1971 that was actually pretty good. I believe it fell in the ratings back then due to competition from other top rated shows and hense the network axed it, as they do with many good shows. There is plenty of action in this show and it stars a Stutz Bearcat, as well as Rod Taylor of "The Birds" fame and Dennis Cole, who we had as a guest on On Screen & Beyond back in 2009 on episode 44, shortly before his untimely passing. Be sure to listen to that interview to get a behind the scenes look into the show. They play mercenaries, who each episode find a new adventure to make some money. The show left well before it's time, but now thanks to Timeless Media, you can enjoy each episode once again! I know I did! Available May 14

WEST POINT was a series on CBS and ABC back in 1956/1957 and 1957/1958 respectivley. Each episode was based on true life events of the academy.

When Charlie Sheen left "Two and A Half Men", people thought he was crazy (for leaving the show - I will not get into his other antics). When it was announced he was going to star in his own new series, people wondered if he could recapture the magic of his previous show...he did. While the show will continue to evolve, I'm sure, Charlie has another hit with ANGER MANAGEMENT SEASON 1. It's sharp and funny and with time, will become even better. He plays an ex baseball player who had issues on the field and he now, ironically, is an anger management therapist. He is seing a therapist of his own to deal with his issues, but in true Charlie form, he is constantly jumping her bones! He plays the role very much like his character on his old show, why change something that works! If you haven't seen ANGER MANAGEMENT SEASON 1, check it out! Available January 8.

THEY CAME FROM OUTER SPACE: THE COMPLETE SERIES

I must be slipping! THEY CAME FROM OUTER SPACE is another TV show I had never seen or heard of before. The show is from 1990 and ran 20 episodes. I sat down to watch it and found it to be a funny show. Not a ground breaking, thought invoking show, just a fun show to kick back and watch. The premise is that to college aged alien's from another planet, the planet Crouton, come to Earth to get an education, but of course, things don't turn out as their parents had imagined. It may be mindless viewing, but it's fun! Check it out!

 

OVERLAND TRAIL : THE COMPLETE SERIES

I have to admit, I had never heard of OVERLAND TRAIL. With so many westerns in the 50's and 60's, some had to fall to the wayside, but now with DVD's we are able to take a look back at those lesser know show and enjoy them.

TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY

With the upcoming release of the new film TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY starring Gary Oldman and Colin Firth, we felt it was appropriate to review the classic Alec Guinness TV mini-series version, now out on DVD from Acorn Media Group. Alec Guinness does a superb job as a retired spy during the Cold-War era, who now has the task of finding a mole in the British Secret Intelligence.

GOING MY WAY: THE COMPLETE SERIES

Here again, like Arrest & Trial, I had never hear of this TV show. Of course, I have seen the Oscar winning film with Bing Crosby, but this was my first trek into the TV show. What a cast! Gene Kelly, and yes they give him the occasional opportunity to do some crooning, Dick York, pre-Bewitched, and Leo G. Carroll, pre-Man From U.N.C.L.E. A very family oriented show, each episode sets out to touch your heart. It may have been a short-lived show, but it still has 8 DVD's and 25 hours of veiwing. Gather the family and enjoy! Available on December 6, 2011 a Timeless Media release.

 

ARREST & TRIAL

I can not ever recall this TV Show, so it was a new experience when I sat down to watch it. I was pleasantly suprised! Each episode is 90 minutes and follows, as the title says, the crime as it happens, to the eventual arrest and through the trial. Ben Gazarra handles the arrest in his quiet style and Chuck Connors rules over the trial. I was easily drawn into show and so will you! . Available on November 22, 2011 a Timeless Media release.

 

THE GENE AUTRY SHOW: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON

Ok, we head back to the wild west with one the most popular cowboys of all time! Gene Autry was a multi talented person, whether it was film, TV and singing, Gene could do it all. He eventually starred in his own TV show in the 50's and this DVD continued his reign of popularity. THE GENE AUTRY SHOW: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON is a piece of TV history. Whether or not your kids will head outside after watching and start riding their imaginary horse, I can't say, but it will bring back fond memories for those who where around for the original showings or later saw the reruns.

Charlie Sheen is back...a least for another season of SPIN CITY on DVD and Heather Lockear is with him. Charlie seems to settle in to his character during this season and with that, more laughter!

They found it and set out on another fun season. Check it out and enjoy! Available December 13, 2011

 

DESIGNING WOMEN: THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON

The ladies of Sugarbaker's are back for what I think is one of their funniest seasons. The show at this point still featured the original cast and they are on fire this final season together. Alice Ghostly also has some great comedic scenes in this season. Fans have been waiting for a while for this season and they will not be disappointed. These ladies had a chemistry that stands the test of time. Available on December 6, 2011 a Shout! Factory release.

 

WIDE COUNTRY: THE COMPLETE TELEVISION SERIES

I love it when a TV show that was not a hugh hit and did not last on TV for years is released on DVD. Some of the best shows I know fall into that catagory. I also love when a show I never saw comes to dvd for the first time. It enables me to watch it as if it's a brand new show of the new season. WIDE COUNTRY is one of those shows. I don't recall ever even hearing of it. Now I have and I have to say it is an enjoyable show to watch. It stars Earl Holiman and Andrew Prine as rodeo stars. I'm sure if the networks back in the 60's had given it a chance it would have lasted more than one season. It also includes the pilot for the WILD COUNTRY called "Second Chances" which starred Cliff Robertson, which makes for an added treat. Check it out and enjoy! Available November 15, 2011 from Timelss Media.

 

MEDIC: THE COMPLETE SERIES

Before "Grey's Anatomy", "Private Practice", "Medical Center" and "Dr. Kildare" were practicing medicine on TV, Richard Boone was the "MEDIC". The show was groundbreaking in 1954 and with actor Richard Boone leading the cast, how could they go wrong. The show is dated as far as the medical procedures, of course, but the drama holds up well. An interesting show that you should check out. Available November 15, 2011 from Timelss Media.

BETTY BOOP

"Boop-oop-a-doop" was the catch phrase the forever will remind us of the 1930's icon Betty Boop. Technically, this was actually a film star, but I have listed it under TV shows, since many people saw her for the first time on TV. Betty Boop touched peoples hearts in a way that very few cartoon characters ever have. Now thanks to Timeless Media, we get the chance to relive or discover for the first time, what made Betty so lovable. Max Fleischer was the animation genius who created her, as well as many other classic characters. Be sure to check out this part of animation history! Available on November 15, 2011

 

THE MEN FROM SHILOH SEASON: THE FINAL SEASON

Since I had the honor of interviewing both James Drury and Lee Majors and hearing them speak of THE MEN FROM SHILOH, it gives a whole new insite into the show. The show of course was an evolution of "The Virginian" as the show was winding down. The Virginian was a classic and The Men From Shiloh tried to continue and breath new life into the show. It ultimately ended, but this final season still worth seeing and very enjoyable. Lee Majors was part of the cast along with Stewart Granger and of course the long standing stars of the show, James Drury and Doug McClure. If you get a chance, listen to the interviews with James and Lee in our "Reruns" section and then sit back and enjoy the final season of a classic TV western! Available October 25, 2011 from Timeless Media

 

WAGON TRAIN: THE COMPLETE 4th SEASON

Season 4 of WAGON TRAIN is a rousing season, which sadly marked the passing of star Ward Bond. The chemistry that he and the other actors gave on screen was a pure amazing to watch! They seemed like a real bunch of freinds getting the job done, but having fun while doing it. As with most westerns of the day, a moral underlines each episode, but they a a healthy dose of humor that keeps the show fun and the embossed collector tin that holds all the dvd's is great!

REVIEW - WhenI first sat down to watch THE FEATHERED SERPENT, I wasn't sure how they would handle an epic tale of ancient Mexico with all the possible sets and people you would think it would entale. Now remember, this is a show that was done in 1976, so I started to watch it and found that by today's standards, the sets were very simple, but the story draws you in. I thought it was very reminicent of the old American TV classic "Dark Shadows". Not in the setting or stories, but in the overall feel of the production, the sets and the way the cast deliver their lines. I personally enjoy tales of ancient civilizations and with the well scripted storylines, filled with the classic good verses evil (and throw in an evil leader who is brought back to life) and you have a very watchable show. Check this one out! Available May 17, 2011.   4 out of 5 slates!

                       Genre:  Crime Drama                                     

REVIEW - MURDOCH MYSTERIES is an engaging period piece set in Victorian Canada. I love the way they mix the suspense, humor and intrige into a very viable crime drama! Throw in Murdoch meeting up with H.G.Wells and Nikola Tesla in seperate episodes and it makes for great viewing! Evidently this show has been nominated for many awards and after viewing the show, it is easy to see why. Definitly ad this one to your collection and the Blu-Ray version is stunning!

REVIEW - I had never seen IDENTITY before this review. This is a spellbinding show!

Hopalong Cassidy: The Complete Television Series

                       Genre:  Western                                      

REVIEW - I love it when they come out with the westerns from the Golden Age of Television. Seeing the classic good guy - bad guy show makes for great viewing and a nostalgic look back! HOPALONG CASSIDY: The complete televison series, with William Boyd,has over 21 hours of viewing and it is well worth watching! Hopalong Cassidy was a staple back in the late 40's an early 50's and everyone knew the name of this hero. One thing I always admire about these old westerns is that the hero always had such an amazing looking horse...and Topper was no exception. A great show, check it out on June 7, 2011 from Timeless Media Group.   4 out of 5 slates!

The Gene Autry Show: The Complete First Season

                       Genre:  Western                                       

REVIEW - Gene Autry is one of the most famous singing cowboys there ever was and yes, he was the guy who sang "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" and owned a baseball team. But, from 1950 to 1955 THE GENE AUTRY SHOW ruled the airwaves. This show has all the usual cowboy hero stuff, fights, shoot-outs and adventure, but Gene added his signature singing and a sense of humor to the show which made for something different. Families and kids loved this show back then and it's easy to see why the kids would be outside playing cowboy after each episode. Pick this one up, spend some time watching it with your kids and in no time they will be outside riding their imaginary horse and chasing the bad guys. Available June 7, 2011 from TImeless Media Group. Enjoy!   4 out of 5 slates!

The Virginian: The Complete Fourth Season

                       Genre:  Western                                       

REVIEW - Timeless Media Group has a real gem in THE VIRGINIAN: The Complete Fourth Season. James Drury was the star of the show, playing the lead role, but the cast was also very impressive: Lee J. Cobb, Doug McClure, Clu Gulager and Randy Boone. The set includes 10 DVDs and with each episode being a movie in its self with a running time of 75 minutes (an hour and a half with commercials on it's original TV run).

                       Genre:  Western                                       

REVIEW - On May 17, 2011 you can add another season of the classic TV western WAGON TRAIN to your DVD library! WAGON TRAIN The Complete Third Season comes thought with great episodes filled with action and fun. Having not seen any episodes of the show for years, it was fun to relive the fine acting and storylines that made WAGON TRAIN such a popular show. The show has action, but it also has a good amount of humor thrown in by the cast. It also has a nice stable of guest stars who ventured onto the show, including Mickey Rooney in one episode. It's amazing how little he has changed after all these years. TImeless Media Group has done a wonderful job with this release, with 10 discs and over 31 hours of viewing. WAGON TRAIN: The Complete Third Season is an absolute must for any western lover and with the special embossed metallic Tin as a case (pictured above) it makes a great collectible item!   4 out of 5 slates!

Who Do You Think You Are? Season 1

                       Genre:  Reality                                       

REVIEW - Who Do You Think You Are? is a reality show of a different kind. Each show follows a celebrity as they trace their family history and learn about themselves in the process. Season 1 features guest celebrities Sarah Jessica Parker, Emmit Smith, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Broderick, Brooke Shields, Susan Sarandon and Spike Lee. This is a very interesting show to watch! Check it out and also check out the new season.  4 out of 5 slates!

Fresh Fields Set 1

                       Genre:  Comedy                                      

REVIEW - Here is a British comedy from the 80's that is worth watching...funny yet heartwarming at the same time! The chemistry between the two main characters is wonderful. The plot follows a couple who have been married for 20 years and with the kids grown, Hester (the wife) decides she is ready to find new challanges in her life and dragging here husband, William, with her. It makes for enjoyable viewing!   4 out of 5 slates!

=======================================================

Norman Conquests

                       Genre:  Comedy                                       

REVIEW - Norman Conquests just didn't do it for me. This late 70's show seemed to be trying to pry a laugh from you. It is a very dry humor, but I just couldn't seem to care about the characters or what they were doing and it was very slow moving . The story follows the lives of three couples during a weekend at their bedridden mother's home, as the single sister reveals she is seeing someone...her brother-in-law. There are moments, but too few for me.   3 out of 5 slates!

=======================================================

Napoleon In Love

                       Genre:  Drama                                       

REVIEW - To me, Napoleon In Love was a little slow moving at first, but eventually it picks up, but not with the typical fighting scenes that you would think. This mini-series follows the life of Napoleon, not on the battlefield, but in the bedroom and in his efforts to gain social status. The cast is very good and stars Oscar nominated actor Ian Holm, Billie Whitelaw and Peter Bowles.   3 1/2 out of 5 slates!

=======================================================

Midsomer Murders Set 17

                       Genre:  Mystery                                       

REVIEW - When I review a show from British TV, it is hard no to compare it to a show I have seen before. Even though Midsomer Murders is a very different show, shades of Columbo kept popping into my head. I enjoyed Columbo very much and I also enjoyed Midsomer Murders, both involve discovering clues and solving the case. This well done show, which is a set of 4 100 minute movies has a strong cast and wonderfully detailed stories. Great addition to any DVD library! 4 out of 5 slates.   4 out of 5 slates!

Man In A Suitcase Set 1

                       Genre: Action Spy Drama                                       

REVIEW - In the 60's when everyone was watching "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." , ABC released this TV show about an ex-spy who has been wrongfully dismissed from his job with U.S. Intelligence and many people miss the show. But now, thanks to DVD and Acorn Media, we all can check out this well made action packed show. I do enjoy a good spy show and this one fills the bill. Check this one out! . 4 out of 5 slates.   4 out of 5 slates!

Garrow's Law Series 1

                       Genre:  Drama                                       

REVIEW - I have to admit, when I first saw this DVD in my review batch, I was not very excited to view it...it just didn't look interesting to me, stuffy 18th century English lawyers (yawn). But, I must admit, after actually watching it, I have to say this is a really good show! Based on actual court records, this show brings interesting stories and humor to the viewers. I whole-heartedly recommend this TV show . 4 out of 5 slates.   4 out of 5 slates!

Wish Me Luck Series 2

                       Genre: War Drama                                       

REVIEW - Wish Me Luck is a show thar follows the women of the British spy world during World War II. I have not seen Series 1, but had no problem getting into this show. It is well written and keeps you on the edge of your seat! This show was based on real life stories of the women secret agents and it makes for great viewing with the strong cast. 4 out of 5 slates.   4 out of 5 slates!

=======================================================

The Guilty

                       Genre: Suspense/ Drama                                       

REVIEW - The Guilty is a compelling and complex thriller that has excellent writting and superb acting. The story weaves togther the lives of people connected with the appointment af a judge. This was originally a BBC miniseries broadcast in 1992, but still holds up well today. Check this one out if your looking for intrigue! 4 out of 5 slates.   4 out of 5 slates!

=======================================================

Dirty Tricks

                Actors: Martin Clunes, James Bolam          Genre: Comedy                                      

REVIEW - Dirty Tricks is a comedy with a mystery stirrd into the mix to make for a funny and adult oriented show that keeps you laughing. It gave me a Benny Hillish feel, not in the sense of a sketch oriented show, but in the racy British style TV from the past. It's hard to explain but this is a very amusing show. The show starts with the lead looking back at what has happened to get him to the point he is at, being accused of murder. Sit back, relax and have a good time with this one!   4 out of 5 slates!

=======================================================

Enemy At The Door : Series Two

                Actors: Alfred Burke, Bernard Horsfall          Genre: War/Drama                                       

REVIEW - Enemy At The Door revolves around the citizens of an island that has been occupied by the Nazi troops during World War II. It seems a little dated in the production values, but the stories draw you in and make up for that small flaw. This is with out a doubt one of the best WWII series I have seen. Check it out!   4 out of 5 slates!

=======================================================

Prime Suspect : The Complete Collection (UK)

                Actors: Helen Mirren, Frank Finlay         Genre: Crime/Drama                                       

REVIEW - Helen Mirren is top-notch as Detective Jane Tennison in Prime Suspect. With an actress of this caliber how could they miss! Filled with great acting, writting and the characters are developed better than most US shows. This series is not written...it is CRAFTED, showing what television can and should be. I highly recommend this series!   4 out of 5 slates!

=======================================================

Life On Mars : The Complete Collection (UK)

                Actors: John Simms, Liz White          Genre: Sci-Fi/Drama                                       

REVIEW - I really enjoyed the US version of Life on Mars, so I was a little skeptical that the British version, which was the original, would live up to what I enjoyed on the one season of the US outing. I must say, I was very pleased with this series which actually lasted longer and gives you more of the story. Well acted and great storylines highlight this version of the show.   4 out of 5 slates!

=======================================================On The Road with Charles Kuralt : Set 3

                   Actors: Charles Kuralt           Genre: Reality                                      

REVIEW - Very few people can tell a story like Charles Kuralt. He was a master at bringing real life, everyday people into the life of all of us. The stories are engaging and entertaining. If you get a chance to see the previous sets (1 & 2), check them out also...you will not be disappointed.  4 out of 5 slates!

Dark Skies: The Complete Series

Street Date: January 18, 2011                   Actors: Eric Close, Megan Ward           Genre: Sci-Fi                                      

REVIEW - Dark Skies has it all; smart, well written stories, fine acting from a great cast. Why the network ever let this one go, I'll never know. But thanks to Shout! Factory, we are able to enjoy this great show once again. The way the writers mix the alien cover-up with real life historical events makes for a fresh twist to the whole conspiracy theory, alien abduction theme. The DVD comes loaded with many extras, including a never before seen proposal for season 2...if only they had continued the show. Be sure to check Dark Skies out, you will not be sorry!   4 out of 5 slates!

Mike Connors plays the no nonsense PI, Joe Mannix with gusto and he's not afraid to fight when the need arises.In the 70's, this season covers the 1970 to1971 season, cop shows and detective shows were all the rage and Mannix was one of the best!

THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON

                   Actors: Johnny Carson, Ed McMahon           Genre: Comedy                                      

REVIEW - CreateSpace brings you the classic Tonight show episodes with Johnny Carson. We reviewed a classic episode featuring The Jackson 5 as Johnny's guest.

Street Date: July 27, 2010                   Actors: Melissa Hart, Nick Bakay          Genre: Comedy                                      

REVIEW -  The final season of "Sabrina" arrives! She is all grown-up and no longer the teenager from past seasons and she sets out on her own (with friends, of course) and this sets up for a fun and enjoyable end to the series. They have included the made for TV movie "Sabrina Goes To Rome" as an extra.      3 1/2 out of 5 slates!

REVIEW -  Matlock is back for another season and Andy Griffith plays Matlock with ease! The cast is great and I like the way that Andy brings back actors from his previous classic show. In the first show of season 5, you can see Aneta Corsaut who played Helen Crump on "The Andy Griffith Show" in a small role. Matlock is like a fine wine, it gets better with age.        4 out of 5 slates!

THE GAME: The Third Season

Street Date: July 6, 2010              Actors: Tia Mowry Hardrict , Coby Bell        Genre: Comedy/Drama/ Romance                                        REVIEW - The Third Season of "The Game" starts off with a bang, an unexpected pregnancy and the usual mayhem. The story line seems more like a night time soap than a sitcom, but then again "The Game" is more than just a sitcom. It can be addictive, so watch out....or watch it!
