Séance (2004): Koji Yakusho, Jun Fubuki, Tsuyoshi Kusanagi, Hikari Ishida - PopMatters Film Rev

As Koji and Junco drift apart, not only is their dialogue minimal, but they also appear repeatedly framed by windows and doorways.

I Love Lucy: The Complete Fourth Season (2004)

I Love Lucy was one of the few sitcoms that knew how to manage its guest stars, either in wonderful character bits or as themselves.

The Wind in the Willows: The Complete First Season

Egotistical and utterly deluded as to his own popularity, Toad's adventures are by far the series' best, owing much to David Jason's maniacal performance.


Oz - The Complete Fourth Season

Arresting for any number of reasons -- graphic violence, extreme masculinity, harsh language -- Oz also brilliantly inventive with its percussive soundtrack.

Sapphire and Steel: The Complete Series

We don't know their past, we don't know the extent of their connection, but we're in love with these characters.


Ellen: The Complete Season Two

We are more eager to see how Ellen is going to muck it up than to believe she's looking for a partner.

The Question of God: Sigmund Freud & C. S. Lewis, with Dr. Armand Nicholi

The Question of God presumes the answer to its titular 'question' to be yes.


Dog the Bounty Hunter: The Best of Season 1

Love the mullet or he'll kick your ass.


America’s Next Top Model: Cycle One

America's Next Top Model is intriguing, appealing, and grotesque, much like the fashion world itself.

Murder One: Season One

Mesmerizingly played by Daniel Benzali, Ted respects the law but understands that the courthouse is just one of its venues.


The Dukes of Hazzard: The Complete First Season

Embracing NASCAR, stunt driving, and short shorts, the series had such a good time being ridiculous that it was often fun to tag along.

SCTV: Volume 3

SCTV: Volume 3 finds the show in the midst of its gonzo stride.


Paul Robeson - James Earl Jones One Man Show

We learn that racial discrimination drove Robeson into his performance career, which he thought of as a form of resistance.


The Mystery of Charles Dickens

Veteran actor Simon Callow gives life to Ackroyd's demanding script, which weaves historical and personal anecdotes in and out of dramatizations from Dickens' oeuvre.

Spike & Mike’s Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation: Caught in the Act!

The animators here have, with a few exceptions, yet to outgrow a fascination with the satirical possibilities of putting wholesome cartoon characters through their R- and X-rated paces.


The Greatest American Hero: Season One

Television producer/thriller novelist Stephen J. Cannell is like the Bob Dylan of TV.


The Grid

The Grid attempts to confront terrorism and Western ignorance of Islamic culture head-on.
