    Bob's Burgers (2011-on)

    Just wanted to start a discussion thread for one of the most underrated cartoons I've ever seen, Bob's Burgers - LOL. I've only seen the first season (so far), but plan on continuing to watch this & get caught up. (Mods, note that I couldn't find a dedicated thread devoted to the show so...

    The Champ (1979)

    Recently watched The Champ for the first time on the DVD. Excellent film. Very sad/poignant, and realistic. Jon Voight & Ricky Schroder really convinced me that they were actual father & son (in the film) - though I know they aren't in real life. Excellent casting here. Even though the Voight...

    "Heroes", starring Henry Winkler & Sally Field (1977)

    Recently re-watched the excellent 1977 film Heroes on DVD, starring Henry Winkler & Sally Field. Winkler plays a Vietnam Vet with PTSD, who is trying to re-connect with his old army buddies on a cross-country road trip. Though the film definitely starts out light hearted & has many comedic...

    L.A. Law (1986-1994)

    Hey everyone. I'm on the verge of starting to watch L.A. Law on the S01 DVD set for the very first time. Never saw the show much on it's original run (1986-1994) for whatever reason, However, as I've gotten older - I've made a point of seeking out, watching, & appreciating TV shows that were...

    "Fry's Electronics" - what's going on with this store?

    I used to be a huge fan of Fry's Electronics in the 2000's & early-mid 2010's. I have fond memories of going to the store & seeing a plethora of electronics, appliances, CD's/DVD's/Blu's. I found their prices extremely good & competitive, and they were my go-to place for all my new...

    "The Ray Bradbury Theater" TV series (1985-1986; 1988-1992)

    I'm a big fan of Ray Bradbury's short stories/novellas & have also enjoyed the filmed adaptations based on his work (notably The Martian Chronicles mini-series, Something Wicked this Way Comes, etc.). So, I was surprised when I recently found out about the anthology TV series "The Ray Bradbury...

    "What Lies Beneath" (2000, Robert Zemeckis)

    Recently re-watched WLB on the Widscreen DVD. I had seen this in the theater back in Fall 2000, but this is the first time I've watched this since seeing it theatrically. Excellent suspense/horror flick! I remember being surprised that Harrison Ford played a "bad guy" (for lack of a better...

    Blast of Silence (1961, Allen Barron)

    I've seen the b&w film Blast of Silence several times over the years, on the Criterion DVD. Excellent movie, which focuses on a lone hitman who travels to NYC during the Christmas holidays to perform a "job". Great atmosphere, acting, period jazz score, and location. Early ’60’s NYC may as...

    "The Three Stooges" Bio-pic. (TV movie, 2000)

    Recently saw The Three Stooges film (Farrelly Brothers) for the first time, and it reminded me that back in Spring 2000 - there was an interesting looking made for TV bio-pic. about the Stooges, starring Michael Chiklis (among others). I never saw this, but based on the ads it looked like a...

    Pretty in Pink (1986)

    It's tough to believe that the iconic '80's teen film Pretty in Pink still isn't on Blu yet. It's an extremely well-done film with a great story, good acting, and an incredible soundtrack. Even though I never saw this back in the '80's, I do remember hearing songs from the film as a teen -...

    Some kind of Wonderful (1987)

    A while back I re-watched Some Kind of Wonderful on the DVD. Excellent & underrated film; my appreciation for the movie increases with each subsequent viewing. Would definitely like to see this on Blu. This film is unfortunately & unfairly compared to PIP. Though the storyline is similar (with...

    Playback issues with Samsung BD-J5100 - need advice

    Hey everyone. I need some advice regarding my Samsung Player BD-J5100, and figured this would be the best place to come: I got this Blu player new around November 2017 and it has played DVD's & Blu's perfectly - until now. Recently, it didn't play two Blu's at all: The River's Edge (1986) and...

    Why I don't like seeing films theatrically anymore

    Being a huge film aficionado, some of my best experiences in the past have been seeing films theatrically - primarily in the 200X's. At the time, some local art house theaters had showings of older 1950's/1960's films, so it was great to see classics like this on the big screen. And, there are...

    "Light of Day", directed by Paul Schrader (1987) - still no Region 1 DVD/Blu release

    I just recently watched "Light of Day" for the first time ever. Excellent film; great story, and good '80's hard rock soundtrack. I'm not a huge MJF fan, but Joan Jett ,Gena Rowlands - as well as many of the supporting actors - were fantastic. JJ seemed like she wasn't even acting but was...

    "The Equalizer", starring Ed Woodward (1985-1989)

    The Equalizer was one of the most underrated TV series of the '80's. As a kid, I caught a handful of episodes on network TV back in the day & was impressed by what I saw, but never got into it that much at that time. A while back, I got re-interested in the series, and ended up watching all...

    Discussion/Review of "Babylon 5" TV series (1993-1998) & Tele-films

    Hey everyone. I'm a huge fan of the sci-fi TV series Babylon 5, and couldn't find a dedicated thread discussing the show & TV movies. I'm fairly certain there are other fans of the series on here, so just wanted to post my review of the series & some of the TV films, and possibly start a...

    "Jeremiah", underrated post-apocalyptic TV series (2002-2004)

    I just heard about the recent & unexpected passing of actor Luke Perry. Very sad news. Though I was never a 90210 fan, I did really enjoy Perry's underrated sci-fi TV series Jeremiah, which ran only two short seasons (2002-2004). I saw both seasons on the DVD sets years ago. Here's a review...

    Bringing out the Dead (1999)

    Bringing out the Dead is extremely underrated, and one of my top ten '90's films. One of the many reasons I like this film is the late night urban atmosphere - this gives the film a strong pseudo-noir aspect. Re-watched this a while back, and was very moved by the paramedic main character (Nic...

    Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows (2000)

    Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows is one of the most underrated horror films of the 200x's. I remember seeing this in the theater in Fall 2000, and thinking it was disturbing & well-done. IIRC, I believe it got panned at least partially because it was so different from the first film - while TBWP...

    "An Unmarried Woman" (1978)

    I've seen An Unmarried Woman a couple of times over the years on the old DVD. Excellent film, and a real time capsule of late '70's NYC. The city may as well have been another character in the film. This film seems to be a fairly accurate depiction of the changing sexual mores & attitudes in...

    Permanent Record (1988)

    I recently re-watched Permanent Record (1988) and thought it was a great film. I first saw the movie back in the 200X's, on DVD. Very sad - but also poignant - film about a teen who seems to have everything, but unfortunately can't find a reason to go on. The film is also obviously set &...

    P.T. Anderson's "Hard Eight" (1997)

    Hard Eight (1997) is unquestionably my favorite P.T. Anderson film (and I've seen them all). The minimalist approach & storyline was quite compelling. The anonymous urban landscape of casinos, diners on the side of the highway, & motel rooms is used to great effect here. I also liked how the...

    "Night Court" (1984 - 1992) on DVD

    Hi everyone. I just searched, and couldn't find a discussion thread devoted to the entire Night Court series on DVD (just individual seasons), so decided to create one. Mods, I hope this is OK. Though I missed Night Court when it first aired (primarily in the 1980's), I've been catching up...
