30 Rock: Season 5

Still TV’s snappiest half-hour.


Television series

Rod Lott
Since moving homes roughly a year ago, my whole life got thrown for a loop. One notable, although not Earth-shattering bit of fallout was not being able to watch “30 Rock” every week. My schedule forced me to wait for the DVD set.

Archie's Weird Mysteries: The Complete Series / Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century: The Complete Series

Hey, kids!


Television series

Rod Lott
Being a child of the 1970s, there's an entire generation's worth of cartoons I missed out on, and they all seem to come from the same studio: DIC Entertainment. By the time DIC came to prominence with Inspector Gadget in 1983, I was too old, and Saturday mornings were better spent on sleep.

Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season

In fandom alone, this HBO series is king.


Television series

Rod Lott
At the risk of making me less popular than I already am, I don’t get the unconditional love for HBO’s Game of Thrones that suggests it is beyond criticism. A harmless crush, I understand; a vow of eternity, no. It’s too soon to be slipping a ring on its finger just yet, but as season two beckons, the potential certainly exists.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXIII

'XXIII' marks the spot for laughs.


Television series

Rod Lott
Fans won't need much convincing (if at all) to plunk down their choice of currency for a purchase of Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXIII (that's "23," dummies), because by now, Shout! Factory's rep for packing these boxes with genuine care and irresistible extras is rock-solid.
