    [b]Serial Mom gets a little respect and a nice release from Universal with this Collector’s Edition. John Waters’ fans will certainly enjoy the extras and the new commentary, while Kathleen Turner fans will enjoy watching her devour the scenery here. And it sports a solid new transfer to boot.

    Agree, this was a solid and worthwhile release IMO. The colors were kinda bright, but not in a bad way.¹ Nothing to complain about here considering what I was expecting from before. I found the extras interesting too, what an interesting bunch of characters Waters surrounds himself with. Edit: ¹ By pure coincidence, I now recall this was the first DVD I watched after recalibrating my display. Let's say I was a little upset for a while... [P.S. calendar check!]

    Craig, 1. You're very funny. 2. Maybe I'm stuck in a time warp in 2007. That or I'm getting sloppy again... 3. But I still laughed out loud when I saw the date...

    When I first saw the date, I thought this may have been a review of the DVD from another region, but it *sounded* like what I saw...then I saw you started the (original) thread etc. and knew... BTW, thanks for the review! It's very fair/accurate IMO. You should have seen me doing the DVD shuffle after I put this one in. It is extremely dumb to check a calibration with a new unknown disc, why do people do such stupid pointless things?

    To answer your question with another one, why do reviewers like me try to backdate their reviews by a year to make them look like they got done on time? But to be serious, thanks for your kind words.
