High School is Hell
by Kevin Gaussoin, Editor-in-Chief
Fifteen years ago, Buffy the Vampire Slayer premiered on television and the success of its seven seasons (or twelve if you include Angel) brought supernatural action drama into being, leading inevitably to today’s supernatural shows ranging from The Vampire Diaries, through Supernatural and Being Human, and into the occasionally-clothed and always sexy True Blood. But Buffy had a few things going for it that the others did not. Notably here are its clever and ubiquitous self-referential humor and perhaps most importantly here is that Buffy possessed something that most other supernatural shows never had. It was in the beginning set in one of the most frightening places on earth: High School.
(Beware: Some spoilers ahead!)
High school is hard for everyone. It’s a time in your life where you really start to figure out who you are and try to define yourself. The biggest trick is figuring it out while fitting in with the rest of the school. The hit TV series Freaks and Geeks from comedy mastermind Judd Apatow (The 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up, and Superbad) explores the trials and tribulations that we all must face. Shout Factory has just released one of the greatest TV on DVD collections to date as Freaks and Geeks: Yearbook Edition. This set includes the entire 18 episode series which ran from 1999-2000. The realistic and honest take on high school the and inherent problems that we all go through defined this series and sets it above the rest.
The Doctor is IN!
Doctor Who that is. New adventures, new Companions, and returning adversaries comprise the greatness that is the Fourth Season of Doctor Who which is now available on DVD. If you haven’t been watching this newest incarnation of The Doctor Who franchise Season 4 is a great starting point!
It was 1996, and Michael J. Fox had left television for movies. His career was waning, and it seemed like he was going to be relegated to lesser, direct-to-video releases. In comes Gary Goldberg and DreamWorks with a new television series. This series was Spin City, and it aired on ABC Tuesday nights. Spin City: The Complete First Season was recently released on DVD and collects the entire first season, including the pilot onto DVD.
Spin City was about the deputy mayor of New York City, and his day to day life where he practically ran the city under a pretty much incompetent mayor, and wacky staff.
“Prototype”: Pilot – City Hall has to deal with a garbage strike going on, and an insensitive comment that the mayor makes toward gay people.
