The Nanny – The Complete Series (A PopEntertainment.com TV on DVD Review)

The Nanny The Complete Series (1993 – 1999) (Shout! Factory-2015) It’s hard to remember now, with all the years of reruns, jokes about Fran Drescher’s voice, Beautician and the Beast, the oddball tabloid stories, Happily Divorced and the inevitable marching on of time, but for a brief white hot pop culture period, The Nanny was … Continue reading

Get Smart – The Complete Series (A PopEntertainment.com TV on DVD Review)

Get Smart The Complete Series (1965-1970) (HBO/Time-Life-2007) Okay, I have to admit it.  I cheated a little.  Whenever I review DVD box sets, I make it a rule to watch every single episode in the package.  Usually I try to sit through all of the extras as well. Unfortunately, as much as I have been … Continue reading

All-American Girl – The Complete Series (A PopEntertainment.com TV on DVD Review)

All-American Girl The Complete Series (1994) (Shout! Factory-2006) Not even a guest appearance by Oprah Winfrey – playing no less than herself – could save this sitcom from biting the dust. Nor an appearance by Quentin Tarentino, at the peak of his white-hotness from Pulp Fiction– could pump this turkey’s chest back to life. Even a pre-famous Jack Black, as an … Continue reading

The Job – The Complete Series (A PopEntertainment.com TV on DVD Review)

The Job The Complete Series (2001-2002) (Shout! Factory-2005) It is a mystery why Denis Leary has never become huge. He’s one of the funniest guys in show business, and yet none of his films or TV ventures seems to catch on. He is a brilliant stand-up comedian (just track down his old CD No Cure for … Continue reading

Astro Boy – The Complete Series (A PopEntertainment.com TV on DVD Review)

Astro Boy – The Complete Series (Sony Home Video-2005) Growing up in the sixties, I remember rushing home after school to catch all my favorite shows on local Philly UHF TV stations; Channels 48, 29 and 17. The reception was always a bit fuzzy, the commercials wereatrociously cheap and tacky, but the warm and cozy memories of those cherished shows remains hardwired … Continue reading

Freaks and Geeks – The Complete Series (A PopEntertainment.com TV on DVD Review)

Freaks and Geeks The Complete Series (Shout! Factory-2004) Description:  Freaks and Geeks started out as an above average cop on The Wonder Years formula.  (Why isn’t that great show on DVD yet, particularly its perfect first few seasons?)  It didn’t quite get a whole season on NBC (1999-2000).  However, this little show about growing up in the early 1980s … Continue reading
