Watching The Walking Dead recently, I found myself actually feeling proud of Jon Bernthal for going from playing that dopey lovelorn guy on The Class to a big role as a angry law enforcement agent on one of the year's most talked-about programs. And he's not the only member of the short-lived CBS sitcom who is back in the limelight now. Almost all of the series regulars from the ensemble show have moved on to new regular gigs, with one notable exception (poor Heather Goldenhersh), which is actually a pretty impressive feat if you think about it. Good to know that casting directors didn't tune out about after The Class' bizarre pilot episode, even if most viewers apparently did.
A few months ago we lamented some shows that weren't on DVD, but now it's summer and we're lacking substantive shows to watch this time of year. We'd love to retreat into a box set of an old favorite. Sadly some classic (and not-so classic) shows aren't available on DVD (at least legally). It is sort of crazy, because we can get all of Saved by the Bell: The New Class, 'Til Death, Seventh Heaven and Home Improvement, but yet The Wonder Years isn't available. Most delays are due to rights issues or companies that owned them went out of business, but still, we'd like to see someone figure it out and get these seasons out to us, stat.
