What’s Happening!! - The Complete First Season

It's the kind of show that one catches in reruns, without need of directors' commentaries and loving digital transfers.


Secret Agent A.K.A. Danger Man Megaset

Patrick McGoohan's Drake is an intensely moral character, but never sanctimonious, a diehard cynic who nonetheless believes in what he does.


Just One of the Guys (1985)

Just One of the Guys is worth repeated viewing, especially for Hyser's hilarious and charismatic performance.


Hustle and Heat (2003)

Lisa's got what Rad calls 'more firepower than Waco,' in her garage.


Dirty Pretty Things (2002)

The title refers to many 'things,' most simultaneously dirty and pretty.


Dawn of the Dead (1979)

George Romero's apocalyptic vision looks more like prophecy than fiction.

Xena Warrior Princess: Season Three

Xena depicts the most fully realized and evolving lesbian relationship on television.


The Vampire Effect (Chin gei bin) (2003)

The device aptly serves as metaphor for the risk currently facing Hong Kong cinema, namely, the pursuit of the global mainstream.


The Spook Who Sat By the Door (1973)

It remains one of the few uncompromised representations of black armed resistance in the United States.

Big Brother and the Holding Company with Janis Joplin: Nine Hundred Nights [DVD]

Big Brother, good or bad, were caught in some remarkable crosswinds, and the tension of occupying their position makes compelling drama.

Homicide: Life on the Street: The Complete Third Season

Homicide's third season focuses increasingly on tensions among the detectives, as they endure increasingly personal devastations, over more linear storylines and more sensational murder mysteries.


Barbarians

Barbarians challenges some common misconceptions about these tribal nomads.


Something’s Gotta Give (2003)

Something's Gotta Give is best when it backs off the cute dialogue and the actors create their own moments.


Beyond Borders (2003)

The truth is shifty throughout Beyond Borders, primarily because its fiction is filtered through Sarah's eyes.
