According to Jim: Season Two
The second season of the outrageously funny family comedy "According to Jim" is available for the first time on DVD from ABC Studios and Lionsgate.  Starring Emmy® nominee Jim Belushi (Outstanding Writing in a Variety or Music Program, "Saturday Night Live," 1984) as an abrasive but lovable father and Courtney Thorne-Smith (TV's "Ally McBeal") as his gorgeous and feisty wife, "According to Jim" was nominated for two Emmy® awards and is one of the longest-running live-action comedies currently on TV.   The 4-disc DVD set features all 28 episodes from the second season, which aired on ABC plus a "Behind the Scenes" featurette.  

In this earthy family comedy, Jim (Belushi) is the macho "everyman" who challenges wife, Cheryl (Thorne-Smith), with his stubborn manliness but contagious charm.  Tagging along with this duo of happily married opposites are their three precocious kids.  A success at his construction business and the family breadwinner at home, Jim feeds his other passion, blues music, playing with his six-man garage band.  He keeps Cheryl in turmoil with his boyish bravado and ever willful antics, but their underlying love guarantees that they are in this marriage for keeps. 
Pricing: DVD $29.98  (4-Disc Set)

My Wife & Kids: Season Two
Winner of a People's Choice Award for Favorite Television New Comedy Series in 2002, the second season of ABC's hit family comedy, "My Wife and Kids," is now available for the first time on DVD this May from Lionsgate. Starring four-time Emmy® nominee Damon Wayans (TV's "In Living Color") and Tisha Campbell-Martin (TV's "Rita Rocks"), the crazy family is back with its fair share of laughs and, of course, problems.  My Wife and Kids: Season Two is a 4-disc DVD set that contains all 28 episodes. 

Michael Kyle is a loving husband and modern-day patriarch who rules his household with a unique and distinct parenting style. As he teaches his three children some of life's lessons, he does so with his own brand of wisdom, discipline and humor. Janet, Michael's wife and a caring mother to their three children, knows how to maintain that fine balance between taking care of their home, building her career and trading punch lines with her husband. The kids are: Jr., a high school student who is a regular recipient of his father's witty, disciplinary ways; the moody, adolescent daughter, Claire, whose favorite hobbies are asking Dad for money and giving him grief; and six-year-old Kady, who rarely lets Daddy have the last word. Jr., Claire and Kady know they can turn to their father if and when they need his guidance. Sometimes it seems like, even without their asking, Dad knows ahead of time what they might need, and he's only too happy to provide direction -- often to their chagrin.
Pricing: DVD $29.98 (3-Disc Set)

Raising the Bar: Season Two
The second and final season of TNT's hit legal drama is available for the first time on DVD from Lionsgate.  From the creators of "NYPD Blue," "Hill Street Blues" and "L.A. Law," Raising the Bar: Season Two stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar (TV's "Saved By The Bell") and seven time Emmy® nominee Jane Kaczmarek (TV's "Malcolm in the Middle"). Watch the cases and lives of young lawyers unfold as they fight on opposite sides of the bench in this emotionally powerful legal drama.

The dynamic TV series was created by 10-time Emmy® award winner Steven Bochco ("NYPD Blue," "Hill Street Blues," L.A. Law") and features an incredible cast with John Michael Higgins (Best in Show), Gloria Reuben (TV's "ER"), and J. August Richards (TV's "Angel").  The 4-disc DVD set contains all 15 hour-long episodes plus deleted scenes.  
Pricing: DVD $29.98 (4-Disc Set)
