Screw police procedurals -- the TV show on DVD we're most excited about is an all-puppet show about a monkey who pilots a giant robot.
Titan Maximum: Season One
If you're going to make a TV show that parodies such glorified '80s toy commercials as Voltron, Robotech and Macron 1, what better way to do it than with stop-motion animation? It's like you're using toys to make fun of a show about toys! Plus, it's made by the same minds behind the brilliant Robot Chicken, who already have plenty of experience skewering pop-culture icons through puppetry. All nine episodes of the series are here, with commentary -- now we just need a fully articulated Titan Maximum to go along with our Robot Chicken toys.
Max Headroom: The Complete Series
Who knew that Max Headroom, the now-iconic representation of all-pervasive American media culture, was a British creation? Someone needs to get Matt Frewer another starring role, so he can reclaim his place in the spotlight and stop settling for roles in Syfy original movies and guest spots on shows like Supernatural.
Trauma: Season One
Relive the trauma that is this short-lived series about paramedics. (Warning: May cause internal bleeding.)
Numb3rs: The Final Season
Shouldn't this set be called "The F1nal S3as0n"? If you're gonna start replacing letters with numbers, you have to be prepared to go all the way.
Adam-12: Season 5
From what we can get our parents to tell us, this show was like a less-funny Car 54, Where Are You? ...We still have no idea what they're talking about. Is that like Southland?
Raw: The Beginning: The Best of Seasons 1 & 2
According to this DVD set, the best of WWE's Monday Night Raw show circa 1993-94 includes sumo wrestler Yokozuna's body slam competition on the Intrepid, Jerry "The King" Lawler getting dropped on his head, and a lot of matches involving Doink the Clown. So, basically, this is a piece of history.
