In 1987, a crack TV show was cancelled due to falling ratings over which they had no control. This show promptly escaped to the Los Angeles underground and spent the next 20 years building nostalgia through strategically placed pop culture references. Today, still wanted by fans of the show, they survive as a DVD boxed set. If you have a DVD player, if no other show will do the trick and if you can find it in Best Buy, maybe you can buy... The A-Team.
The A-Team: The Complete Series
I love it when a boxed set comes together! Sure, all five seasons of this show have been made available before, but with the movie coming out a re-release was inevitable. And this version is a must-have, since all 25 discs come in a box shaped like the A-Team's van, complete with Hannibal and B.A. Baracus sitting in the front seat. Find someone to give your old sets to, stat, because I pity the fool who doesn't have a DVD collection driven by Mr. T.
Complete your Seinfeld DVD collection with the cast reunion that took place in this season of co-creator Larry David's show. Or, if you're feeling like you might be a bad person, just watch a couple of episodes and you'll feel like some kind of a saint almost immediately.
Nip/Tuck: The Sixth and Final Season
This is it. No more kinky sex. No more waiting room mastectomies. No more Rosie O'Donnell. This is the last of it, the last of the crazy sexual roller-coaster ride that is Nip/Tuck. Worth it if only to watch the show try to get away with replacing Katee Sackhoff with Rose McGowan, even if it's only for four episodes.
Tales of the Gold Monkey: Complete Series
Shortly after appearing in Star Trek: The Motion Picture, actor Stephen Collins played a 1930s pilot and adventurer in the TV series Tales of the Gold Monkey. It's kind of like if Indiana Jones was a TV show, but it's a lot more like if Disney's Tale Spin wasn't a cartoon and the role of the talking bear was played by Reverend Eric Camden from 7th Heaven.
Family Matters: The Complete First Season
How is this the first time the popular 1989 TV series is coming out on DVD? I hope Jaleel White is getting some money from this.
Z-Rock: Season 2
Chances are you didn't watch this show about a rock band by night that plays kids' parties by day, but if you're a music buff, you might get a kick out of the show's numerous cameos. Maybe. I don't know. What am I, psychic?
Jim Henson's Dog City: The Movie
I'm willing to accept that I somehow missed this noir tale of gangster dog Muppets, which aired as an episode of The Jim Henson Hour, but I refuse to believe that I completely missed out on the 31-episode Canadian spin-off series that combined puppetry and animation. I am officially mad at my Canadian friends for not telling me about it.
