TV DVD's worth Checking out.

The only thing better than TV is TV on DVD. No commercials, on demand, extra features, behind the scenes, and commentary. You can't beat a marathon of your favourite shows at the tips of your fingers.





SIMPSONS - SEASON 6

Don’t painc the packaging hasn’t changed (that much), the yellow plastic homer head is just a cheap blister pack. Underneath I’m fairly certain is the standard packaging from the five previous seasons on DVD. I didn’t want to tear into in the store to confirm but it felt like it. Anyways this is season 6 and it’s the second season where The Simpsons are really hitting their stride. Classic episodes include: Who shot Mr. Burns Pt. 1, Homer the Great, A Star Is Burns plus many more.

MUPPETS – SEASON 1

I knew if I held out long enough it would come around. Note: never fall for the compilation DVD’s, if it’s as good as you remember it being they’ll release the entire season and you’ll be kicking yourself for having multiple copies of episodes.

It's time to raise the curtain on THE MUPPET SHOW! Join Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, the Swedish Chef, and more in the first season of this groundbreaking twist on the classic Variety Show. Contains all 24 episodes, which have been completely restored and remastered. The bonus features also include something you were never meant to see: the original "pitch reel" that propelled the Muppets' blend of original songs, sketch comedy, and guest stars into a primetime hit for all ages!
DEAD LIKE ME – SEASON 2

I was so mad when I heard this show was cancelled. Why does this keep happening to all my favourite shows? Damn you and your lowest common denominator shows, TV!!! Unique shows never stand a chance at finding their audience because they're always yanked before word of mouth can spread. At least it’s now available on DVD.

Proving that "reapers are anything but grim company" (Cleveland Plain Dealer), this "deliciously dark comedy about the afterlife" (Newsday) returns for "a second season as strong as its first" (Philadelphia Daily News). Thanks to breakout star Ellen Muth's prickly charm, Dead Like Me has "an amusingly odd and touching energy all its own" (Detroit News and Free Press). After more than a year as a grim reaper, George (Muth) has realized that being a teenager in the afterlife is as complex as in real life. There are still unrequited crushes, agonizing dilemmas and the occasional bad attitude. Along with her kooky "co-reapers" Mason, Daisy, Roxy and Rube, George struggles to collect souls while managing her own awkward development…into an adult reaper!
