There is no DVD justice. In a world where even According to Jim is available on disc, where oh where are DVD sets of all the sublime gone-too-soon shows that live on in fans' memories, years and years after their demise? Now And Again? Homefront? Frank's Place? We've got quite a DVD wish list. Santa, please see what you can do.
Blame Canada. That Oscar-nominated South Park ditty is easy to invoke when our northern neighbors export such ho-hum tube fare as this week's new CBS police crisis pick-up Flashpoint or SOAPnet's current trashfest MVP: He Shoots, She Scores. But we have to see the value of imports when the hockey-lovers deliver sublime treats like Due South and Slings & Arrows.
So maybe you skip Flashpoint -- although it does star northern boy Enrico Colantoni, forever beloved as the who's-your-daddy of Veronica Mars (and as the sweetly deluded alien in 1999's classic Star Trek send-up Galaxy Quest) -- and instead enjoy some DVDs of the great white north's greater gifts.
