I have found that watching TV series on DVD to be my new obsession. Have recently watched all of Freaks and Geeks, The Office, The Sopranos, and Strangers With Candy. Any suggestions on other good TV on DVD? Also, am waiting on 60s Batman TV show to be on DVD-but while I wait what else is good?

The Prisoner
SCTV
The Young Ones
Upright Citizens Brigade
Dark Shadows
They did release the 60's Batman movie on DVD. It may be the movie that started the TV show.

I've gone through all the DVDs for:
Freaks and Geeks
Soap
Pee Wees Playhouse
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Six Feet Under
Office

And have started:
The Young Ones
Home Movies
Kids in the Hall

I'd like to get to the Sopranos soonish. Maybe Wire, too, though I have no clue what that one is about (I just generally think the HBO shows are really good).

It all depends on what we can get for free from the library and what the video store has in stock.

Homicide: Life On the Street---best show ever until The Wire. 6 really, really good seasons and a seventh where they were desperately fighting to win their time slot against Nash Bridges that wasn't quite as good.
Posted: Jul 3, 2005 7:27 am
 
Freaks and Geeks is one of the best shows I've ever seen. There should have been some more drinking and throwing up type of behavior in that show though. I just finished the last three episodes minutes ago.

Get A Life

The State (if MTV ever decides to put it out, which they should, since Reno 911 is so popular).

As much as I hate this concept, I did break down and buy one of the Get A Life DVD's.....unfortunately you can only get 8 episodes, total. Somebody needs to release all of them.

ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT

If you're not familiar with the show, judging by the stuff you say you've recently watched, I think you'll love it.

MONKEYS season 2

davy is sooooo dreamy!! right boys!!!!

I second Arrested Development. Season 1 is probably my favourite season of any show, ever. Also, it's a damn near impossible to follow show unless you see it right from the start.

Is Salute Your Shorts out yet?

What's Happening?! Season 2 has the Doobie Bros. episode and the one where Rerun joins the Baba Ram Baba cult and worships a head of lettuce named Ralph. The first season is better though, before Dee started growing boobs.
Posted: Jul 5, 2005 4:06 pm
 
the Larry Sanders Show is essential, although I think there's only season one out on dvd so far.
Posted: Jul 5, 2005 6:33 pm
 
If you like Strangers with Candy, you should try Reno 911.

I'm OBSESSED with tv on dvd, and having netflix is essential.

I am about to finish Six Feet Under season 3, then I get Kids in the Hall Season 1, then Buffy Season 3, then then then. I love it.

Definitely get Arrested Developement too.

I love television.
Posted: Jul 5, 2005 8:44 pm
 
So, I'm not the only one that does this! Yeah, I haven't had cable in like 3 years because I don't like watching TV and I started the Netflix thing and half of what I get are TV shows!

But definitely Six Feet Under.
Deadwood
Carnivale
Dead Like Me
Actually Alias isn't bad, if you can get by the cheesiness factor.

But it's definitely the way to watch TV- no commercials and you don't miss an episode...
Posted: Jul 5, 2005 9:03 pm
 
Any of you UK Goners ever watch 'Long Way Round'? I've been tempted to buy the DVD, but I'm a yank and don't have a PAL tele. Is the show any good?
Posted: Jul 5, 2005 9:08 pm
 
currently really into the first season of "the sheild." it can be a little over the top but it's really good. netflix is great for the tv series. except when you decide to have two of the discs from one season and a movie and you watch the two discs of the show and are really into it but don't have the next disc and you get all upset at yourself for thinking you were even gonna watch motorcycle diaries. that sucks.
Posted: Jul 5, 2005 9:21 pm
 
EXACTLY! I think we should just give in and get the last disc of the Shield tonight from Video Verite. I can't wait til Thursday for it.

Needless to say, I am completely into The Shield. It is sort of a budget The Wire, but definitely on the level of some of the Homicide: Life on the Street episodes. The over the top factor is like icing on the cake. Just looking at Chiklis is funny.
Posted: Jul 5, 2005 9:25 pm
 
the Shield is crazy! The only show in history to actually depict the chief of police (Acevada, a male) being forced at gunpoint to perform a blowjob on an escaped convict. Now that's entertainment.
Probably the most unsettling and disturbing show on TV.
Posted: Jul 5, 2005 9:28 pm
 
Never heard of 'Long Way Round'. It did however take me aroud 5 months to watch the Monty Python box set. 12 dvd's or so. Won't be doing that again for a while.

whoa! spoiler alert. say no more please.
Posted: Jul 5, 2005 9:37 pm
 
oops, sorry. That was two seasons ago. either way, you've got a lotta sordid stuff coming up. The first season gave you the infamous "Cherry Poppers" episode, so that's enough to hold you over.
Posted: Jul 5, 2005 9:44 pm
 
Yeah we recently viewed "Cherry Poppers" but I have to say the "Two Days of Blood" episode is taking some cake as far as a lead up to MAD VIOLENT LA COP CORRUPTION!
Posted: Jul 5, 2005 9:45 pm
 
yeah, got through the asian child porn episode the other night. the "911 is a joke" riot just started and Aceveda's boss just threatened Vic's family and boom! episode over and we don't have the next disc. Fiery, I'll be hitting up Video Verite on the way home. this season will be finished by tommorow night. change the fucking netflix que to season two honey.

Looking forward to renting the Angel series.
Posted: Jul 5, 2005 10:36 pm
 
I JUST took the Shield off of my queue, I was like "Why do I have this on here?" but now I have to put it back on!

Also, I'm looking forward to starting Angel. I have a ton of shows on there that I've never seen before. I'm obsessed. I have 500 discs in my queue at all times.
Posted: Jul 5, 2005 11:01 pm
 
Jeezus Norah, you gotta get the Shield. Even my old man who raised me on more bloody gore and 'adult situations' than any pre-teen needs, even has a hard time watching it.

I read somewhere that HBO had turned it down originally because of it's excessive moral bankruptcy, and how the protagonists are all, essentially crooked cops. I guess it wins all the Emmys and beats out a lot of the HBO heavy hitters, though.

and CCH Pounder? what kinda name is that?
and that theme song? Uggh!

Carol Christine Hilaria Pounder- she's from guyana. shortened it to make things easier. i guess it works cause i can't seem to get through the credits without saying her name.

agree on the theme song. at least its short.

I saw The Critic on Netflix. Is that good? I just rented The Corner disc 1 and Soap season 1-disc 1 since I saw yers praise on here.

I resisted The Shield for a long time because I always thought it was all screaming brutal insanity and saturated color and ridiculously jerky hand-held camera...and it is. I love it. It is luxuriously TENSE.

The Corner will break your heart.

Has anyone mentioned Family Guy? Now there's some dvds worth owning!!!! Family Business is worth checking out. It's about Seymore Butts (the porno director) who makes the movies and his family (mom, uncle?) who run the business of distribution and taking photos/pics of new talent. I liked it but it's not 5-star greatness. More like 3. It's got lots of tits, a little bush/vag and dick in the fast shots. It's by no means porno in any way. It's a documentary/reality type show. 30 minutes episodes. Most dvds have 4 epidodes me's thinks. I don't really dig Seymore's porn movies but the show is quite good, not excellent.

Yes!!! When the last Sopranos came out, I just got them all at once, because I knew that would happen!

And I think that even happened to me with Motorcycle Diaries!

where is I am the arm?
shouldn't some one have Twin Peaks on here?

I was all over Carnivale when the first season came out.
And I didn't know they had the Adventures of Pete and Pete out on DVD. I'm getting that shit ASAP.
Posted: Jul 7, 2005 2:53 pm
 
I just put the Shield in my queue, as recommended here and was suggested the Commish. Now I'm worried...
Posted: Jul 8, 2005 11:03 am
 
I got The Shield season 1 disc 1 since it was recommended also! I had Sopranos season 1 disc 1 at #1 and the Shield at #2 but the Sopranos has a fuckin' wait. Hasn't that been out on dvd for about 5 years? There shouldn't be a wait!

the Commish? Never heard of it but here's the synopsis...

The Commish: Season 1 (6-Disc Series) (1991)

Long before he broke out in a big way as the Emmy Award-winning star of the television series "The Shield," Michael Chiklis was Tony Scali of the Eastbride Police Department, a thinking man's cop who "loves pasta and busting scum" in this series that blends hard-hitting drama with laughs. The show's premise is a rare case of a lead character who solves crimes with brains rather than brawn.

The Commish: Season 2 (6-Disc Series) (1992)

Police commissioner Tony Scali (Michael Chiklis), who relies on smarts rather than brute force to keep the peace, finds his job all the more challenging this year, with cases that border on the impossible. Watch the second season unfold as he infiltrates the porn industry, busts a socialite for running a prostitution ring and more. Plus, he's got his personal life to manage, including the arrival of his and wife Rachel's (Theresa Saldana) baby.

What's with tv dvds sometimes only having 1 or 2 episodes per disc? I don't rent a lot of tv for that reason. They'll pack some extras onto thedisc of 1 or 2 episodes so that you can't complain. Screw that!
Posted: Jul 9, 2005 4:47 pm
 
Scrubs: Season 1 is out on dvd. I'm not a big fan and hardly ever watch the show but I thought it was worth a mention. It's an alright show.

Soap was shit. The Shield was okay, it was nothing really violent or anything new. Just a TV cop show. Any R-rated action movie has a lot more suspense and action in it. I'm renting disc 2 later this week to see if it gets any better. The Corner I really liked. Getting disc 2 on Wednesday! I don't feel pain for the characters so we'll have to see if I do when the end comes.

I've seen Curb Your Enthusiasm and that show sucks! Save yourself a rental, that show's a bore!

Next up I'm seeing Jow Schmo and Ali G. Hope those rock!

Who steals dvds from Netflix? I have before! I'll report something as missing when I want to get something and I haven't returned something yet. Or I'll just keep some movies I like or instructional dvds like for guitar . It was shitty when Netflix changed their policy about reporting something lost from 2 days to 6 days. That's why I don't report so much lost anymore. I remember getting a skating dvd 3x and each time I got it, it took 3 days to arrive and the dvd was always beoken. That sucked! So I never saw that. One time I tried to rent the Banger Sisters and Harry Potter 2 was the dvd in the Banger sisters envelope. I was pissed. I never got a second copy. Like 6 months ago I had reported so many dvds as lost that my account got shut down for the day and I had to call Netflix and they opened my account back up. That was sweet! I don't know why people would buy movies when you can just jack them from Netflix. The only extra thing you get when you buy is the box and cover/backing paper. Netflix shit is easy to store which is why I like stealing their movies!

You have a heart of stone if you aren't thinking about The Corner days after that last episode.

The Shield is easy entertainment. I'd rather watch a 15 hour long cable tv series than most R rated movies coming out today. The Wire is easily superior, but what are you gonna do for two months before Season 3 is out???

So what are folks opinion on The Wire? I just rented the very first vid from the first season and the story was pretty good, but there was some crappy acting, and the dialogue was retarded. It's like HBO wants to corner the market on "Fuck". I'm all for swearing, but there are lines like this "motherfucking fucker fucked the fucking thing up, fuck. " All the time. So it's like Law and Order with the word fuck generously interspresed into the dialogue, correct? Cause I think I may forgoe watching the rest of this and move on. Not trying to sound ridiculous or prudish but to base a cop show around the word fuck is kinda stupid.
Is Oz good? And what is the 411 on The Shield I am not familiar.

Schmatt, I've already put in my .02 about the Wire above, but if the use of a certain expletive really bothers you, avoid episode 4 at all costs. It contains one of my favorite scenes of the entire series (and television as a whole), but it seems likely you'll walk away with a different perception.

I've always thought the acting and writing was well above average, particularly compared to a series like Law & Order where hyperbole and absolutes seems like the only avenues the creators use to make a point. Also, peppered throughout the Wire are non-actors ranging from an actual Baltimore Police commissioner to a local drug lord and while they might not make for the best actors, I think it speaks volumes David Simon's relationship with the city.

You might want to avoid Oz as well. I liked it, though not half as much as the Wire, and the number of actors who play a part in both series are pretty staggering.

It contains one of my favorite scenes of the entire series (and television as a whole), but it seems likely you'll walk away with a different perception. If you can tough it out a bit longer though, I think you'll be amazed at how much seemingly insignificant moments from early episodes turn out to be pivotal plot points later in the season...there's a whole lot of setup, but damn, the payoffs are huge.

The Wire is my favorite too. I find the acting/writing to be some of the best, if not the best, on TV right now.

I'm not exactly huge on T.V. shit going to DVD. Depends on the quality of the footage, and wether or not the actors involved look feminine enough to actually BE chicks (not really my thing, ya know?). If you've seen any of Roco Von Button's "Tits with a Dick" series, you know exactly what I'm talking ab........ohh....T.V. as in "Television", not "Transve....". Nevermind.

Joe Schmo! just finished disc 2. gotta now get disc 3 for the final episode where everything is revealed. shitty. just to jack up the price they add a 3rd disc. lame! it's impossible now to like Matt aka joe schmo. He's the fucking sweetest and nicest, most geniune guy that's ever been on tv. Watch it and love it.

I still have 2 shield dvds to watch. i've had them for a week i imagine. they're so fucking long and i never get around to them. This is why movies are good. they're nice and short. I''ll have devoted about 12 hours of my life to tv on dvd this week. Plus, I gotta watch my few tv shows that i record on the VCR. that's a big commitment.

I read that batman will never be released, because two different companies own the rights to the series. Im really happy that they finally release Hogans Heroes

You should read The Murder Of Bob Crane. There's tons of Hogan info in it.

I was at Meijer's today and they had a 227 box set. Who the fuck would ever want to own all the episodes of 227?

My So Called Life is on DVD. That show is the television equivalent to "Are you there God Its Me, Margaret". But each to their own.

Show sucked, but I still watched it because I was in love with Claire Daines. The show kinda lost it for me because she was always angsty about something really vague.....it was always like, what's the problem here? They should have ended it with her having a flashback to being gangbanged by priests at age 7. Too normal. Also Jared Leto is a fag.

ps- The show where Julianna Hatfield played an angel? Amazing. Stupid, but amazing.

And I was also very pleased to see What's Happenin'? on dvd, although I don't think I would actually pay money to see the old gang again. Boy oh boy was that Dee a sparkplug and that Rerun could jiggle. Speaking of when is Mama's Family making it's way to digital-versatile-disc?

i picked up the undeclared set last week, it'd been long enough since i'd last seen it that the jokes seemed new. jason segal as eric the boyfriend is a fucking howl.

Undeclared's pretty cool. The first episode commentary says that the show died because it premiered right after Sept. 11th and it really didn't mean anything when all people wanted was news about terrorists. It was insignificant to terrorism!

I'm getting some BBC thing called Chef next week from Netflix. Hope it's good! Then in Sept. some other BBC show comes out on dvd that I wanna see called, Peep Show. I read that Fox just bought the rights. Suicide Girls have a dvd coming out Tuesday too! I might get that if there's nudity although lots of Suicide Girls have a lot of stupid, dumb piercings/tats/dye jobs which ain't really that sexy to me. Maybe I should just go get some porn, eh?

Point taken. I can relate on the level of once having been a teenage girl, also loved that book, too so call me cheesy. My husband also got hooked on that show, too though! Haha.... We are unfortunately TV junkies...

MIDORI DAYS!

"All I want is to have a normal girlfriend and a bright and happy school life. Three years of high school are going to end in no girlfriend but my right hand... I'd take anyone at this point." --Seiji Sawamura.

Meet Seiji Sawamura, a blond-haired delinquent high school student with a reputation of being the strongest fighter, especially with his demon right hand. Naturally, this puts fear into his fellow classmates, especially the girls, who are now too scared to go out with him. He's on a losing streak, asking twenty girls and being turned down twenty times. Only grade-schooler Shiori-chan taunts him, offering to be his girlfriend.

The oft-told epithet of loners having one's right hand as a girlfriend does bring up some perverse thoughts, but what if it was literal? To describe Seiji as astonished is like saying the Beatles are good. Anyway, his right hand turns into Midori Kasugano, who it turns out had a crush on Seiji when seeing him everyday on the railway platform, but too scared to confess her feelings for him. She is simply tickled to be his right hand, as that means she'll be with him, and the large googoo eyes she has when she realizes she's with Seiji is simply cute and priceless.

She has apparently inherited the strength of his right hand, as she sometimes drags him out of bed, at one point dragging him down the stairs while he's still sleeping. But there are times she thinks she could do more for him, tearfully worrying that she might be a burden, only to be reassured by Seiji to the contrary.

Yes, the situation is bizarre, but it lends to some outright funny situations. By Episode 1, Midori has made a sleeveless T-shirt for herself reading "I <heart> Seiji," which really embarrasses him. "The highlight is this heart right here," she chatters happily.

In going to the Kasugano mansion, Seiji sees that the full-sized Midori is in a coma. The theory of trying to touch his Midori hand to the real Midori leads to a comedic misunderstanding.

In one scene, Seiji and Midori are sitting on a bench, each with an ice cream cone. Midori is so happy with this situation, she starts eating the ice cream right above the cone. Guess what happens to her afterwards? In the same episode, Seiji takes her to Blue Submarine, an otaku store where anime nerds go. It's a perfect place to find Midori clothes, where doll fans get costumes for their dolls. Midori has fun trying on the costumes. However, this leads to his meeting Shuuichi Takamizawa, the otaku freak who has a hand puppet of the anime character Marin. Takamizawa thinks Seiji is a closet otaku man himself, thinking Midori is a hand puppet just like Marin, but is he in for a surprise!

With Midori being his hand, Seiji can no longer fight, which is the point of the anime. Even though he still talks and yells like a tough guy, his softer side develops with this cute girl as his hand. Midori tells him. "I know the truth. You're really a kind person. You're always doing things like rescuing weak people. That's what I love about you. That's why I'm really happy right now." Indeed, he deliberately takes a beating from a rival gang, finally realizing that more innocent people get hurt because of him, despite his loss of face. This leads to Takako Ayase, the uptight class rep who previously had contempt for him as a delinquent, finally seeing his good side.

Seiji's tough-talking, liquor drinking, biker of an older sister O-Rin is the only person Seiji fears, but even she freaks out upon accidentally meeting Midori. We learn from O-Rin that Seiji, who was habitually picked on and didn't want to fight back, got his fighting skills from O-Rin, who used to defend him from bullies.

The limited edition of the first volume comes with the collector's box for all three discs, plus a cute T-shirt of Midori-chan. Of the voice actors here, I recognize Yuji Ueda (Takamizawa), who voiced Love Hina's leading man Keitaro and was Himeno's father Kaoru in Pretear. Reiko Takagi (Ayase) voiced banana-loving Kaolla Su in Love Hina. But Mai Nakahara stands out in giving Midori a very cute voice. Great beginning to a funny yet warm-hearted series.

Just finished watching all of "The Ben Stiller Show." It starts off kinda hokey, but by about the last four episodes, they'd gotten really funny. Seems like they pretty much started to let Bob Odenkirk write 3/4ths of the skits by the end of it, and David Cross had just started to write stuff. The last two episodes especially are like proto-Mr. Show.

I rented this on dvd before. Couldn't get though more than 2-3 episodes. I think it has to do with my deathwish for the guy since he's been in every other fucking movie the last year or two.
Posted: Sep 15, 2005 3:56 pm
 
I think Ben Stiller's last 20 million movies sucked, but I thought his television show had potential. It had some brilliant moments. Someone should have let him develop that instead of star in 20 million bad movies... last ones I liked were Royal Tennenbaums and Zoolander.

I just bought the first season of Rat Patrol. That shit rules hard. Special ops vs. Rommell's Afrika Korps. They drive around the dessert in jeeps with huge machine guns mounted on the back, and shoot the shit out of a bunch of nazis. It's one of the few shows I like more as an adult than when I was a kid. Top Notch.

Yesterday in the mail came FLCL. I read the synopsis and it said something about rock'n'roll anime so I rented it because you never know. It was fucking boring. There's one girl in it that plays a Rickenbacker.

Tuesday brings Rollergirls: Season 1. Missed that shit on tv so I hope it's worthwhile.

Have to check out Rat Patrol. Sounds pretty fun. Combat! is supposed be be good too.

I think combat! is the same producer as Rat Patrol, so it's probably great. Another series worth checking out is Starblazers. Anime from the late 70's, early 80's. The premise is that in the future earth is attacked by aliens, and the only hope for survival is the crew aboard the Yamata, a battleship from WWII converted for space travel. The characters act like they're 3rd graders, which can be annoying, but if you can get past that the show is pretty awesome.
