    The Worst Season You Have Ever Bought?

    There are very series I have trashed (though sometimes I kept the cases if they were well-made), but the most reason was Season 1 of SEAL TEAM. By episode five the repetition had gotten to me, so I skipped to the finale. It ended with a cliffhanger. Goodbye. Today it's five seasons in, and I'm...

    What series do you want so badly you would be willing to pay a premium price?

    Wasn't it canceled before the first episode ended, maybe during the station break?

    "Law and Order" original series on DVD (1990 - 2010) discussion thread

    It always bugged me that the original series never got the love that was lavished on SVU, which I gave up on when it turned out to be a "pervert of the week" show. I'm very happy to have bought the complete L&O series, which was packaged the way they all should have been: a big box with every...

    Blu-ray Review Thoroughly Modern Millie Blu-ray Review

    And Bells Are Ringing was in the same season as a little thing called My Fair Lady.

    Blu-ray Review Thoroughly Modern Millie Blu-ray Review

    For reasons which passeth all understanding, Elmer Bernstein's one Oscar was for this incidental score, and not for The Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape, The Man With the Golden Arm, To Kill a Mockingbird, Hawaii, The Ten Commandments or any other of his classic scores.

    Pre-Order The Relic (1997) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I enjoyed this one, another from Peter Hyams, who has been called "King of the two and a half star movie."

    In months time... It'll be the 80th Anniversary of the Pearl Harbor event...

    Two words told me just to Red Box it (DVD only) and nothing more: Woody Harrelson -- as Chester Nimitz, no less! I slogged through one viewing. That's time I'll never get back!

    In months time... It'll be the 80th Anniversary of the Pearl Harbor event...

    The biggest howler (and it had some pretty stiff competition) in Pearl Harbor is FDR standing up to convince everyone the Doolittle Raid was not impossible. Aside from the obvious physical impossibilities (he always needed help to get standing and then basically dragged his legs forward by sheer...

    "Law and Order" original series on DVD (1990 - 2010) discussion thread

    Jerry Orbach's character intro was classic. He arrives last to the scene and . . . Logan: Don't you have a pager? Briscoe: What I was doing I don't wear a pager.

    Blu-ray Review A Few Words About A few words about…™ Bringing Up Baby – in Blu-ray

    I LOVE that film, and the chemistry she has with Grant. I'd buy a blu of it in a minute, but the DVD will have to do for now.

    Blu-ray Review A Few Words About A few words about…™ In Harm's Way – in Blu-ray

    That's also the part of the picture when it lost any grip on believability. Maybe it would have worked on a film released in the midst of WW2, but not since.

    Richard Diamond, Private Eye

    I have that disk. It's the two episodes referenced in other posts. I see the price if over $50 now -- nearly 10 times what I pad for mine back when!
