Season Three - Fox
Private eye Laura Holt (Stephanie
Zimbalist) grudgingly accepts a new partner when a mystery
man (Pierce Brosnan) assumes the identity of her fictitious
boss, Remington Steele. Together, the two battle crime as
their feelings for each other grow. Brosnan and Zibalist are
at it again teaming up against all types of obstacles in
this third season of Remington Steele. This season, as with
the other two, contain lots of adventure and mystery that
will take you from one end of the globe to the other.
No job is too tough for this dynamic duo!
Some of the seasons highlights include episodes titled
“Steele in the Chips” involving a no-calorie chocolate
cookie and another episode in which Steele impersonates the
Duke of Rutherford. Most viewers watched this show to find
out what would happen next with our two leading characters.
The chemistry was unstoppable and the
show continues to entertain time and time again. The DVD
contains all 22 episodes on four discs presented in Full
Screen format with Dolby Digital Sound. Extras include
commentary on three episodes and three featurettes on
episodes from the season. This is a great source of
entertainment for the whole family.
The A Team:
Season Four - Universal
At the end of their stint in Viet Nam,
Col. John “Hannibal” Smith and his team were framed for
robbing the Bank of Hanoi (which they had done, but under
orders), and sent to a US military prison. They escaped and
went on the run, pursued first by Col. Lynch and later by
Col. Decker. While on the lam, they became heroes for hire,
working as good-guy vigilantes around the US or the world.
If you are bored, need help and can’t
find anything to watch, you can watch the A-team. By this
season, I think we have exhausted just about every
conceivable plot and scenario for the A-team to pull off.
The stories were so alike, it took away some of the magic.
Mr. T is wearing more jewelry and Murdock is getting on my
nerves. In saying that, the show stills has its moments and
holds some merit. The chemistry of this cast is what
prolonged the show this long. Even though we see the same
basic stunts and car chases over and over again, it is still
fun to watch. Some highlights from this season include the
2-hour premiere entitled “Judgment Day” taking the team to
Italy to find a Judge’s kidnapped daughter. Hulk Hogan joins
the team in “Body Slam” and “Sound of Thunder” where the
team finds themselves back in Vietnam looking for General
Fullbright’s lost daughter. This DVD set contains all 22
episodes from the fourth season presented in Full Frame
format with Digital 2.0 sound. Extras in this set include a
bonus episode from season five titled “Point of no Return”
and a flashback from the 80s feature. Complete you’re A-Team
This is a different kind of Sci-Fi space
movie. “Event Horizon” takes place in the year 2047, in the
orbit of Neptune. A crew is sent out on a search and rescue
mission to an abandoned space ship that they find is
controlled by Satan and kills those who try to rescue it.
“Event Horizon” has a few exciting moments, but overall I
found it boring. If you like Horror/Sci-Fi films you might
enjoy this movie.
On the bright side, this is a reference
DVD—a great demo disc. The dark spaces scenes will really
showcase a monitor with proper black level and contrast
settings. The DTS soundtrack is spectacular and will give
your subwoofer a good workout. (The DTS track is not listed
on the DVD jacket) There is a second disc included for the
extras, which are quite extensive. Actually, I thought the
extras were more interesting than the film itself.
In my humble opinion, Moonstruck is one
of the best films of the 1980’s. Hey, let us not forget the
film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture and
it took home an Oscar for its humorous screenplay. Even
without the awards, Moonstruck is a joyous, life affirming
film about the power of love. Set inside an Italian
household in Brooklyn Heights, MOONSTRUCK stars Cher as
Loretta Castorini, a 37-year-old widow who is looking to get
